Announcement: as I will inevitably become Ruler of the Universe one of these days, I have decide to let you in on some of my plans. For one thing, no male with a beer gut will be allowed to wear a speedo in public on pain of death.

Being a benevolent despot in waiting, I'm willing to consider suggestions for much needed new laws. Anyone?

samarm
03-01-2003, 09:44 PM
But what about the

5 chins?

samarm
03-01-2003, 09:45 PM
Cut back on the pizza supply. Outlaw Dominos.

StarvingButStrong
03-01-2003, 09:50 PM
Drastic that is, Samarm, but...hell, I never use Dominos anyway, so consider them banned. And I'll add an addendum banning pineapple from pizza: that's just plain nasty.

samarm
03-01-2003, 09:51 PM
Even Pizza Hut is getting a bit crappy recently. Outlaw them too!

Lobsang
03-01-2003, 09:52 PM
E Dominos, I never have. or Taco-Bell, for that matter.

Lobsang
03-01-2003, 09:53 PM
Fooey! forgot the 'at' (as in 'Eeat')

samarm
03-01-2003, 09:54 PM

Good god, where will we get our pizza delivered from then?

Good to see you. Hows the lesbian / boss / weird thing going at your place of work?

I will try this, just in case....

samarm

Humpin' Jehovas Witnesses, it's Kat! How you doin'?

StarvingButStrong
03-01-2003, 09:56 PM
Horrendous lines at the only remaining pizza chains being a distinct possibility, I really can't ban Pizza Hut, too. Would you settle for eliminating deep dish pizzas?

Fern Forest
03-01-2003, 09:56 PM
Just for your info samarm the number thing was done the first time through but it didn't take. There's just something magical about alphabetical progression.

samarm
03-01-2003, 09:57 PM
I would settle for outlawing that godawful rubbery cheese they use. That would at least be a start. :D

Lobsang
03-01-2003, 09:58 PM
I hear now that the lesbian wants to be a man and is having the OP. (OPeration, not Original Post) If it is possible for women.

samarm
03-01-2003, 09:58 PM
Keep on trying... that's all I can do... oh well... what's next? Oh yeah... "L"

samarm
03-01-2003, 09:59 PM
Lesbian => man. Is that possible?

StarvingButStrong
03-01-2003, 09:59 PM
Keeping radio safe, I issue another edit: certain songs will be banished from the airwaves for the sake of public sanity. First among them are "Roxane" and "Fly, Robin, Fly."

vivalostwages
03-01-2003, 10:00 PM
"Mandy" can be added to that list as well.

samarm
03-01-2003, 10:01 PM
No, not Barry Manilow! He's a sex god!

StarvingButStrong
03-01-2003, 10:04 PM
Oh, and about paper supplies: no more legal sized paper! And them Brits better get used to 8 1/2 X 11, too, no more A4 nonsense.

samarm
03-01-2003, 10:07 PM
Perhaps you haven't heard? Dubya is taking over the world!

(oops, the CIA told me to keep my mouth shut!)

StarvingButStrong
03-01-2003, 10:08 PM
Quit your joshing, Samarm. Shrub ruling the world? It is to laugh.

BTW, assistance will be needed. Sub-rulers, as it were, to handle particularly troublesome geographic regions (anyone want to tackle France?) and departments. Lots of laws needed to improve television, I'm sure.

Kat
03-01-2003, 10:09 PM
Please can you also ban anchovies on the pizza?

Quite well, I am, samarm, other than a sore spot in my mouth.

StarvingButStrong
03-01-2003, 10:11 PM
Right you are, Kat. In fact, not just on pizzas: Anchovies must be driven into extinction!

Kat
03-01-2003, 10:13 PM
Say, can I be a sub-ruler-type-person?

StarvingButStrong
03-01-2003, 10:16 PM
There! The first person has joined the coming juggernaut.

Why not? I'm feeling extra benevolent right now. (The pleasing prospect of no more anchovies....)

What fiefdom would you like, Kat?

koeeoaddi
03-01-2003, 10:20 PM
Terrifying songs should be banned, I agree. Don't forget Booby Goldsboro, or have U forgotten the horror that is "Watching Scotty Grow?"

Vapid & Xcrutiaing, it was!

Dear Koeeoaddi, you are clearly a woman (man? hermaphrodite? no gender based discrimination in my administration) of exquisite taste. Would you like to the Royal Minister in charge of Cultural Affairs?

StarvingButStrong
03-01-2003, 10:40 PM
Excellent choice, Kat. But you'd have to take New Zealand, too: package deal.

Kat
03-01-2003, 10:40 PM
Exquisite taste and koeeoaddi go together like pizza and beer.

Kat
03-01-2003, 10:44 PM
Fine with me. I think I can keep New Zealand in line. *Grins*

For informational purposes only, aren't threads supposed to last only 14 pages or so?

StarvingButStrong
03-01-2003, 10:48 PM
Have to remember not to concentrate solely on the negative side of things. Special commendations (with all sorts of nifty advantages attached, once I think up what they are) can be given, too. For example, restaurants that offer decent barbecue are exempt from meal taxes.

StarvingButStrong

I fear even Rulers of the Universe must sleep sometimes. No, no, no need to be quiet. Just genuflect as I exit and carry on with the posting.

Does anyone else now go here even before checking email? This is getting sick.

Just some buttered toast. And bacon. And some pancakes with maple syrup. And orange juice.

Rough question, that, kat (if I were a cheating type twickster, I'd try to reinstitute the numerical thing here.)

Snarky sense of humor.

Talented tap-dancer.

Undying commitment to the "a" thread.

Versatile conversationalist.

Wonderful friend.

X-rated commentary only when appropriate.

Young at heart.

Zinnias and other lovely flowers grow in my garden.

Always prepared (former girl scout).

Benevolent, but no pushover.

Canny.

Dopey? He's my favorite dwarf.

Excellent sense of direction.

Foxy, in my middle-aged way (see "G).

Great legs.

Heck of a baker.

Intelligent.

Justice would be my goal.

Kind to kittens and other tiny critters.

Loyal.

Middle-management experience.

Never say die!

Off-the-wall take on things.

Puns? Not to excess.

Queenly bearing.

Remembers those who have done me favors.

Versatile, loyal, devoted to justice, knows which side of your bread is buttered.... Hmm.

Twickster, in my considered opinion, you would make a excellent Supreme Judge and Executioner. I anticipate much opposition to the onset of my reign, you see, primarily among the small minded.

If you accept the position, your first assignment is sperfur. He *seems* to have seen the error of his ways, but it might be a ruse. Close supervision is called for.

twickster
03-02-2003, 12:30 PM
Woo-hoo!

Xtremely excited, I am.

Your wish is my command, SBS!

(Zounds, I may have to add a signature to my posts -- "Supreme Judge and Executioner" -- I like the sound of that.)

And the rest of you --

Be afraid, be very afraid! ;j <<now identifiable as the High Judge and Executioner smiley

Very rare, but you occasionally run across a pizza shop that offers cheese steak as a pizza topping. You can also find it as a filling for stromboli.

You can also get a "Cheese Steak Hoagie" but if I told you what that consists of, I might have to kill you.

Eating cheesesteaks in Ben Franklin's house would be particularly fun -- let us know when you're coming, Osiris, and Watcher and I will take you on a culinary tour. (Soft pretzels at Betsy Ross House -- Tastycakes at the Mummer Museum -- what am I forgetting, Watcher?)

Watcher of the Skies
03-02-2003, 07:32 PM
Forget the soft pretzels at the tourist spots, go to the best (and cleanest) vendor in town at 13th & Walnut. And for cheesesteaks, we could have a long debate about this but I'd take Osiris to Jim's at 4th & South. And for tourism's sake there's the Italian market, the Kimmel Center, Franklin Institute, etc.
