Ars (basketballque; no I don't remember Latin grammer, it's been forever, fuck off) mortis, vita brevis























Offspring the Sequel returned to the homestead with her 8th grade class selection parchment & lo, behold & hark, as expected, fiduciary excision has come to pass & the corpse is alive of course of course unless the corpse is of course the famous Mr. Art. Thanke the Kynge, hys Sheriffs & the plebians who run the local abattoir for, in their own special way, buying snicker into Austerity™ & lopping off the useless-to-corporate, though, & please don't put me in the stockade, French & Spanish shalt remain? Verily, foreign languages are so foreign & when do you think you'll ever be using them whilst jockeying cubicles, connecting to our counterpart minions who already sprechen ye olde Anglo-Saxon?

One step at a time, Randal, one step at a time.












  


Speaking of the dreary, sweet merciful crap, the Cavs are bloody fucking grotesque, a veritable gaggle (flock? mass? troop? herd? horde?) of undead.

So it's a death spiral for the Cavs then? You know how that works. Loss after loss resulting in lower attendance and ad revenue resulting cheaper players resulting in... Wash rinse and repeat.

Laura said...

Is she picking classes for high school? Is that what you're trying to say???
((Hugs))

Laura said...

Or for grade 8?? Do they pick classes in grade 8?

They threaten to move to Dayton, rename themselves the Dayton 5.00.

demeur, if only there was a Tim Duncan in this year's draft instead of no Tim Duncan & a potential lockout.

laura, 8th grade & there are a *few* electives, more in high school. Art used to be one until now.

if, they can scrimmage against the Chicago Seven. Beating the old & the dead shouldn't be too difficult.

maybe I should move back to Parma and vote for the damn school levy. This breaks my little barely creative bleeding heart.

Randal Graves said...

With all the cuts over the years, Doodily gets out at noon. Sorta comical considering that what she does when she gets home is her Japanese & her art (stuff she would've done in study hall & class anyway).

thatgirl said...

Your kids give me hope for humanity, they really do. I mean that with no shred of irony.

Damn right. We need to make English the official language of the entire world, not just here in God's Chosen Country. Er, I mean the "offical" language.

// Verily, foreign languages are so foreign//

'course English is foreign to most Americans. We should just be teaching Amiricaneses anywayz

Liberality said...

I think you need to learn Spanish Randal. That might be more applicable around here.

I swear I try to understand your sentences but try as I might I remain mostly befuddled.
:D

Chef Cthulhu said...

Man, that's just too sad for words. Art being dropped from the curriculum, that is.

The Cavs bit is pretty awesome. Or would be, if I gave a shit about basketball.

susan said...

Now how the hell are artists supposed to earn any money? Do they expect them to sell their work?

Shakes fist!

Fetch me my walker, grandson!

Graves, you swine!

Out here in Californiastan, we cut out art and foreign language requirements to give tax cuts to billionaires back in the 1970s with Prop 13.

Welcome to my world, Amoeba.

Bueños snowshoes,

It's all about the coming generation being able to ask aliens, legal or otherwise, visiting business poobahs and touristas, "Ya want fries with that?" in their various languages. Come to think of it, the curriculum had better include Chinese.

Demeur said...

SW Are you sure eating fries isn't against somebody's religion? Wouldn't want to offend anybody now would we.

Randal Graves said...

thatgirl, then we're doomed!

tom, if we're proactive, we'd start teaching the cant of our Chinese overlords.

okjimm, I miss the verb.

liberality, bah! Tout le monde doit parler le français!

chef, your brain will be the first eaten by J.J. Hickson.

susan, the state should subsidize them but dammit, we really need that drone.

if, get off my banjo!

tengrain, but you hippies, unlike us god-fearing folk, have all those drugs to dull the pain.

SWA, then we better start adding lead to our fries, another increase of production costs, another decrease in wages. Sorry, shlubs!

demeur, I'm offended by offense.
