Yesterday, December 7th, 1941 (it's December 8th, 1941, of course yesterday was December 7th, 1941, sorry for the superfluous information), and date which will long be sourly remembered (by us at least), the Empire of the United States was abruptly (how could we not have expected and prepared for this?...Germany has consumed Europe almost as fast as Japan has conquered Asia and the Pacific) and deliberately (Really? It couldn't have been an accident?) attacked by the boats and planes of the other world Empire, Japan.

In the beginning, Godfather created graft and corruption.

Yo, though I walk through the alley where the tweakers smoke meth, I will fear no evil, cause my boy, Art, will be with me; his shiv and tire iron they comfort me.

I have set Traci Lords pics before me: and my right hand, it shall be moved

And Jesus came and spake unto them and said, “say hallo to my little friend”

Ask not what you can do for your country. Ask what your country can do for you.

Frankly, Scarlett, I don't give a flying fuck.

Scarlett O'Hara was a pragmatic, heartless bitch who would steal any other girl's beau, including her sister's, who was delusional about love, who hated the sex act, who would marry anyone for revenge or money, who would moon over a guy not worth it, who would ignore the real world and choose fantasy just like a woman, who would make a terrible mother, who would drink too much, and who totally hated and degraded every man and woman who come into her path. But she was beautiful, so few men realized it when taken in by her charm like the Tarleton twins.

It was the best of times it was the worst of times, I mean basically there were lots of extremes going on back then.

I love the smell of my own farts in the morning.

The watch was on your Daddy's wrist when he was shot down over Hanoi. He was captured, put in a Vietnamese prison camp. He knew if the gooks ever saw the watch it'd be confiscated, taken away. The way your Dad looked at it, that watch was your birthright. He'd be damned if any slopes were gonna put their greasy yella hands on his boy's birthright. So he hid it in the one place he knew he could hide something: his ass. Five long years, he wore this watch up his ass. Then he died of dysentery. Well...I wasn't about to hide a dumb watch up my ass, especially since the previous guy died from it. So here's a nice new Casio!

When I was just a little yahoo, my dad told me something I can't never forget: "When you see someone mooning over some idiot with a green light", he said, "remember that some people were born dirt poor and never got no good education, other than maybe in rum-running."

My God, April is a real fucking bitch, raining all the damned time and making the ground look like shit by melting all the fucking snow. Let me sleep!
