My Lamb, My Muse


Hi everybody,

For the "multitudes" who have been "clamoring" for a new post: hark and behold! And complain no further!

However I must be honest (for once): this is not one of the entries that have been slowly writing themselves in my noggin. Rather, it's the result of inspiration striking (or technically, being "on strike") in the form of Lamby's latest post, entitled "Politics". Enjoy, please.

***


Lamby: I'm glad to see Hilary Clinton is not winning the democratic nomination. The thing that really bugs me about politicians is that they tell you how bad their competition is. It's like they're saying I am not the right choice for what you are to decide BUT my competition is worse than I am. In other words, I'm not the right choice, but my competition is not any better. Is it any wonder why people don't vote?

Pug: You have a point, my dear Lamby. Sure, perhaps many, many other make a better point than you do. Perhaps some of them have much more luxurious wool to fleece, but maybe just for once this isn't about finding the best choice. Maybe just this once, it's about looking no further.

***


Lamby: I am a Republican by choice. I am against abortion, especially when its used for birth control. I don't want my tax dollars to go to killing unborn babies. Life starts at conception. Abortion is murder.

Pug: I agree with you on your position against abortion. In fact, I am favor of many, many positions that may possibly (if we're not careful) result in the birth of a child. Not only for the reasons that you stated, but also because OUR offspring would be terminally adorable! This is why I believe tax dollars should go toward the creation of OUR unborn babies, because let's face it: not only does life begin at conception: MY love life typically begins immediately before (and sadly, usually wanes right after).

***


Lamby: I'm also against gay rights. The Bible calls them sodomites. If you want to live that way, go ahead, but don't flaunt it in front of me. Marriage is between a man and a woman.

Pug: I also - to a lesser extent - agree with your anti-sodomite stance. Sodomite is a reprehensible pairing of calcium and magnesium, and I for one am OUTRAGED that those two minerals choose to crystalize their relationship. Probably in caves, and other areas which should not contain that sort of activity. However, I am not entirely sure that marriage between a man and a woman should be flaunted either, since impressionable youngsters may seek to emulate that behavior as well.

***


Lamby: Illegal Aliens GO HOME!!!! If you want to stay here, go through the process we have set up. You can stay here legally then. But if you decide to stay here, at least learn English.

Pug: I agree, which is why I have set up my own process for obtaining citizenship. The first step is securing their loyalty via a straightforward system of rewards and punishments. Then I start them on the road to learning a trade. Some show a natural propensity for gardening, while others are more suited to construction and remodeling. For the ladies, we have home economics and culinary internships. I also help a lucky few hone their skills in attracting and retaining a beau. As time permits, I tutor them in English, starting out with basic phrases such as: "No Police", "Have a Nice Day", and "Obey the Pug".

***


Lamby: There is at least one Republican that will or says he will secure our borders. So far, he has my vote. Let's see if he gets on the ballot for 2008.

Pug: I agree. What have immigrants ever done for this country? Not as much as Republicans. That's for darn sure.

***


Lamby: I just thought I'd share that with you so you know where I stand. I also get into these moods where I have to speak up and let the chips fall where they may.

Pug: As I drive erratically down that proverbial road of life, I can't help but think that you are somewhere up ahead. So it's important that I know where you stand. Perhaps that is you holding a bag of Lay's, carelessly allowing actual chips to fall where they may. Or maybe it IS just a metaphor. Either way, it's an image that puts ME in the mood, and you in my cross-hairs, if you catch my drift. And I think you just might.

***


Lamby: I'm not looking forward to this election in November. I dread the ads. What I also hate is when they say "This ad was paid for by... Now c'mon, we already know who paid for it by what you say. Stop treating us like morons! The idiots we put into office must think we're the idiots if we can't tell who paid for the ad. That has always bothered me.

Pug: What if YOURS TRULY has been secretly paying for those ads all this time, but remained anonymous because he didn't want to "cheapen" the gift by taking credit for it?

***


Anyway Lamby, I really liked your post; you continue to provoke me in many different ways. This time, you provoked me to think. Don't let it happen again!

Talk about wolves in sheep's clothing!

Tell a woman who has fallen pregnant as the result of being raped that abortion is wrong.

As for God being against homosexuals, if that is true why did he make so many of them.
"judge not lest you yourself be judged" that is also from the bible.If you dig a bit deeper into that sacred tome you will also find passages indicating that life begins when the first breathe is drawn.

What is the problem with mexicans?
white "Americans" are descended from an invading horde that robbed and murdered the natives of that land almost to extinction, or maybe you think it is better to harvest cheap labour as and when you need it by kidnapping africans, just like the good old days!

I also find the expression
"republican by choice" somewhat confusing, it implies that some people are being forced to be republicans against their will.

This indicates that either there is a dastardly plot afoot or that the woolly thinking which produced the statement is a good indication of the intrinsic value of the thoughts and opinions that follow it.

cathy said...

So, in a nutshell I agree with you pug, bigotry sucks.

Pink said...

yes, I agree that bigotry sucks. And I also agree that your offspring are so cute.

Can I have one of your puppies?

pinks

Little Lamb said...

Cathy, God did not make a lot of homosexuals. They're that way by choice, not design. You are not born that way. Society say you are, but society is wrong.

You also said: Tell a woman who has fallen pregnant as the result of being raped that abortion is wrong.

I can understand abortion in that case, but you don't have to abort that baby. That baby can be a useful part of society.

Pug, I enjoyed this post. I also like to eat Wavy Lays. Maybe I'll drop a few your way. *wink wink*

Pink said...

you know bigotry may suck, but i suspect around these parts...with the pug programme for illegial alliennes, suckatry is pretty big too.

and how do you feel about puggery?

inquiring minds want to know

it was not
an acceptable
form of 'bonding'

nor even huggery (amongst the enlisted men)

cathy said...

little lamb, it seems we must agree to differ.

pink and it, you guys are too funny. here I am getting down off my soapbox and chilling out.

Pug, are you going to join us any time soon?

Actually it is way past my bedtime. Goodnight all.

Little Lamb said...

Cathy we can agree to differ. No two people are the same, so its ok.

puerileuwaite said...

Cathy - Lamby is a wolf! A lamb, also. Like most females, I'm afraid.

I was afraid this might happen: introducing ACTUAL REALITY into this childish blog of mine. You see, I try to keep reality under 10% by volume.

Okay, here's a rare glimpse into how I really feel on the matter ...

This post was not intended to ridicule Lamby's beliefs at least, not any more than the extent to which I poke fun at most topics (which, after all, is my self-appointed job here at "Why Oh Why").

In fact, I DO agree - to a certain degree - with MOST of Lamby's assertions. Here's a rundown:

***

Lamby: I'm glad to see Hilary Clinton is not winning the democratic nomination. The thing that really bugs me about politicians is that they tell you how bad their competition is. It's like they're saying I am not the right choice for what you are to decide BUT my competition is worse than I am. In other words, I'm not the right choice, but my competition is not any better. Is it any wonder why people don't vote?

Pug: I disagree with this one. Politics IS a dirty business. I don't like that it is this way. But until the American voting public places as a high a priority on the future of their country as they do on their favorite TV shows, it will continue to be as it is.

Think what you will about the Clintons. We had 8-years of increasing prosperity and a shrinking deficit under Bill. So who cares if Monica was also there under Bill? Hell, with how good things were (not perfect mind you, but good), YOURS TRULY would've chipped in for a hooker. Hilary is likely the lesser of all evils from both parties. I expect some flak for admitting this. So what. Believe it or not, I WAS a registered Republican. I have learned the error of my ways. They ARE a party that looks out for the extremely wealthy. The rest are just rubes to be manipulated. They also fool Christians into thinking that their interests are represented. They aren't. Look into your history and discover how the Republican / Christian connection developed. Wake up people. Separation of church and state is a vital cornerstone of our democracy, as it protects everyone and their faiths.

***

Lamby: I am a Republican by choice. I am against abortion, especially when its used for birth control. I don't want my tax dollars to go to killing unborn babies. Life starts at conception. Abortion is murder.

Pug: I agree to some extent. But I am torn. Especially as I get older, I view life as a precious gift, and as such, the termination of an embryo should not be viewed in the same vein as routine cosmetic surgery. On the other hand, and as Cathy stated, if a pregnancy is due to rape (or incest), abortion is an understandable option. Additionally, who are we to legislate what a woman can do with her own body? Finally, there are multiple morality issues that haven't even been mentioned. So I am not in favor of a blanket statement for either pro-choice or pro-life.

Lamby: I'm also against gay rights. The Bible calls them sodomites. If you want to live that way, go ahead, but don't flaunt it in front of me. Marriage is between a man and a woman.

Pug: We SHOULD be able to choose. However, I do agree with Lamby, in that I am not a supporter of gay rights, because let's face it: "rights" give humans a license to REALLY become militant litigious assholes. As a species, we really need to shed our sense of entitlement. To go off on a tangent, though I won't elaborate here - I think heteros with families are typically THE biggest non-productive pains in the asses in the workplace. So truly my ONLY major concern with gay rights is how they might morph gay workers into unreliable jerks on a par with hetero "married with children" employees, all under the protection of HR. Basically my stance is: single, married, straight, gay ... I give a shit. Whatever you are, don't inflict choices you have made in life on the rest of the population. And try not to be pricks and bitches regardless of orientation, okay?

***

Lamby: Illegal Aliens GO HOME!!!! If you want to stay here, go through the process we have set up. You can stay here legally then. But if you decide to stay here, at least learn English.

Pug: There are many illegal aliens who toil for next to nothing, doing jobs day in and day out that few of us pampered citizens would consider doing. But the fact is that they DID sneak in, and they do strain a system to which most of them do not pay into. This is not right. I do not believe in amnesty, however if they have been law-abiding (other than the illegal alien aspect) and hard-working while in this country, then that can be taken into account when considering them for some form of residency / citizenship.

***

Lamby: There is at least one Republican that will or says he will secure our borders. So far, he has my vote. Let's see if he gets on the ballot for 2008.

Pug: Yes, it's a sad fact that we DO have to protect the system we have in place by protecting out borders. I agree. But I WILL NOT vote for a Republican. Sorry.

***

Anyway, enough seriousness.

(I'm getting tired too. I'll see you in the AM with more "witty" replies to your comments. I hope you enjoyed the post.)

Mighty Dyckerson said...

Vote Dyckerson in '08! A vote for Dyckerson is a vote for change!!

Serena Joy said...

I'm glad to see you're still alive. I was beginning to fear you were buried in a snow bank somewhere. If Pinks gets one of those pups resulting from your puggery, can I have one, too?:)

Puggery on the high seas. I see lamby has cathy's knickers in a knot. I'm kind of scared now...

to cathy: what was that you said about "judging" before you proceeded to judge little lamb's "wooly thinking?" er....that was the part right before you extrapolated her comments into pro-slavery collusion. nice work! grrrrrherhahahahahaha!

obey the pug!


did you hear about the vulture who tried to board the airplane with two raccoons? the flight attendant said "im sorry sir. you can only have one carrion"

grrrrrrherhahahahaha

obey the pug!

leelee said...

wow....what an interesting albeit timely post...its fun to look in the political minds of my fellow bloggers..very interesting indeed.

PUG..I love your music player( an choice of music)..might think about implementing that on Kitchen Concerts...

thanks for the post...

HUGGERY!!

Party Girl said...

I will have to take the stance of agreeing to disagree with this post.


Also, when chooseing to have God and the Bible as your reason for your decision, then you must take the WHOLE Bible into account. As in: being able to stone your children for misbehaving and your wife, a man having multiple wives, not touching a pig, not working on Sundays, and making a cloth with more than one thread is a crime punishiable by death, and a man shouldn't spill his seed.
Those are just a few of the ones that are on the top of my head, which are also listed in the Bible.
So, are those all okay? I mean, if we are quoting the Bible and all.


Now, onto something happier: your creativity is still alive and well and the Pug driving the car was most cute!

puerileuwaite said...

Mighty D - I was afraid this might happen. After 8-years, we FINALLY get rid of one Clown, just to replace him with another. Still, you couldn't do worse. Okay, unless a "better candidate" appears on the whorizon, you have my vote, buddy.

***

Serena - How did you know? That is EXACTLY what happened to me!

{{{{{{{{{ Pug FLASHBACK }}}}}}}}}}}

Elated by the completion of my Black Bart post, I was racing my vintage Ford Mustang through the Rockies when I lost control on an icy curve and went over a steep embankment. In the crash, I had suffered multiple injuries including a broken leg and a severed ... well, nevermind about that particular injury (let's just say Doctor Nick told me it should grow back thicker than before - just like shaving, apparently).

Anyway, it was there that (let me see ... who have I not picked on in awhile ...) Kate found Yours Truly, and took me back to her isolated cabin. Things started out innocent* (* as much as it gets with Kate) at first, as she nursed me back to health and comforted me in her ample, heaving bosom.

But then things started to get freaky, and she both hobbled me, and forced Yours Truly to write posts that put "Letters to Penthouse Forum" to shame. The hobbling was not nearly as cruel.

Eventually I discovered a weathered copy of Stephen King's "Misery" in the outhouse, and discovered many coincidences which led to a successful escape attempt and a strange feeling of Deja Vu.

Unfortunately, on my way back to civilization, I inadvertently out-paced my escort, and found myself alone at a toll-booth with a clumsy attendant who dropped my change and had to bend over to pick it up. At the same time, the vehicle in front of me apparently had trouble telling the difference between "Drive" and "Reverse". So I honked the horn. Jeez! BIG mistake. Turns out everyone there seemed to have short tempers and live ammo.

Fortunately I was wearing my jet-pack, so I exited via the sunroof and continued my journey from above. And now I am back on my beloved blog, thinking that I might serve an ill-fated stint as Fullback for the Chicago Bears and cultivate a friendship with Gale Sayers.

And sure, since I am the "Canine Dandelion", if I do distribute my offspring, every pretty gal should be saddled with at least one each.

***

Ok, now I totally lost my place in the comments. Let me regroup so I don't miss anybody ...

puerileuwaite said...

Phosgene - You may be scared, but the thought of Cathy's knickers has me rather excited!

***

Pinks - Either naughty knickers or none at all: I'm easy, that way. Okay, I'm easy in many ways!

***

She - Wow! Just the comments here on my trivial blog are enough to make me flee politics altogether! Almost.

Maybe what we need is a "Uniter", not a "Divider". Unless it's a ROOM divider, because those things come in handy. That way, a lady can change into something more comfortable without (directly / knowingly) being subjected to prying eyes / webcams.

Good one! But did you hear about the blonde who insisted on camping out in a First-Class seat on a full flight, even though she only paid for Coach? After multiple attempts to get her to move, the Captain finally came out and whispered in her ear. The blonde immediately and quietly got up and headed back to her seat in coach. Amazed, an Attendant discretely asked him what he told her. The Captain replied, "I informed her that ONLY the Coach section is going to L.A."

***

Leelee - Thanks! I'm glad you liked it. It's all in good fun, amongst good friends. And yes, I JUST added the music player last night, after I ripped off the idea from RevRee's blog. It my way of sharing some of the music that helped shape me into the dement I am today. Load these puppies in your iPod, empty your bank account, heavily douse your upholstery with Brut, Old Spice, English Leather or Hai Karate, and it's as if I'm right there along side you and an intrinsic part of your life!

***

puerileuwaite said...

Party Girl - I have SO missed you! And based on what you've mentioned as ALSO being in the Bible, I may just have to dust off my short-sleeve white shirts and dark khaki pants, and hop back on the bandwagon.

I do, however, have some of my own "amendments", as follows:

1) Thou shalt be able to stone other people's children for misbehaving, even if it's just a possibility;

2) Thou shalt be able to stone one's wife. Actually, let's leave this one "as is";

3) Thou shalt NOT have multiple wives, or any for that matter. Instead, thou shalt use Craig's List to procure female companionship as necessary. One may also barter for lawnmowers and other seasonal needs in this manner;

4) Thou shalt be able to touch a pig at 4-H events, or anytime, if you live in the Southeastern U.S., provided that you do not touch tourists or river-rafters in the same manner;

5) Thou shalt not work on Sundays, and any supervisor requesting such may be subjected to "pressing to death"* (* placed under a layer of cardboard, 3-ring binders, and copy machines). Their soul may be redeemed if they refute the Org Chart prior to expiring;

6) Thou shalt not wear a cloth with more than one thread, particularly tropical and bowling-type shirts. This will also be punishable via pressing, with taunting thrown in for good measure.

7) Thou shant spill one's seed, but instead carefully find a toilet, trash can, interoffice mail envelope, or other pre-approved receptacle to contain the seed.

I think we sorely need an updated Bible with these and other amendments. We should collaborate on one. We can hen distribute them through Sam's Clubs and Costcos, and each one will come with a "Certificate of Authenticity" to prevent any future controversies.

Serena Joy said...

I swear, Pug, you sure do get yourself into some tight spots. I'm glad you were able to unhobble yourself and escape. And thank you for the promise of the offspring. I promise I won't hobble him in my heaving bosom and force him to write fiction.:)

cathy said...

Where I come from we say don't get your knickers in a twist.

"she" has got a point which is why I got off my soap box.

I'm a live and let live sort mainly.

"IF THERE IS ONE THING I CAN'T TOLERATE IT IS INTOLERANCE." LOL

Just one more bible quote then...

"He who lives in love lives in God and God in him, for God is love."

(St Paul's letters to the Corinthians, um...I think)

That's quite an imagination you have there Pug, like there is room to bend over in a toll booth!

leelee said...

I absolutely will Pug...and your last line is true..with or without the tunes ;-)

The Phosgene Kid said...

Where is Lamb Harvey Oswald when you need him??

Knickers. There I said it again. If you say it enough times in a row it stops sounding like a word.

RevRee said...

I'm ready for my rebound pug!

Corn Dog said...

Obey the Pug!

I love the music.

A serious post...Pug. Hmm. I guess I will throw in my 2 cents, if I can remember where I left them.

Can't stand Billary. He ruined me ever looking at a cigar again, and she smashes up to much furniture. Of course you can't bring up those two without resurrecting a mental image of Monica. I'm always thinking, "nasty." Who keeps a dress with semen on it? Send that thing to the laundry, you beret wearing purse maker.

Illegal aliens. So what? You say they've strained the system. Not half as bad as I have.

Abortion. I don't know what to think. That debate has raged in my head for years. I don't understand the circumstances of fetus death. I don't understand death.

Gay rights. I live in Oakland and commute to San Francisco. Most of my friends are gay. 'Nuf said. I love and support my friends. I am hetero, married, and childless. My worst prejudice is against the heteros with kids. Breeders. They drive me a little coo-coo. I don't want to talk about soccer.

I can't tell if I'm on a soapbox or not. I think I'm basically like I always am, under a rock.

Enemy of the Republic said...

Oh boy. Maybe I should stay out of this one; I have argued Cathy's position so many times--I perhaps will do it again; she's my girl, but not right now.

Good post Pug, and Lamby, I don't agree, but I credit you for standing up for your beliefs.

limpy99 said...

I always look to the Bible for solace, especially St. Paul's Letter to his CD club

"For the last goddamn time, I do not wish to receive anymore selections from what you laughably call your 'Adult Alternative' section. These CDs are neither, but rather a sophmoric attempt at musicianship that is an affront to both myself and the Lord. I would much rather be again knocked blind on the road to Damascus, or even Cleveland if necessary, than have to suffer through another Blink 182 CD. Please terminate my membership. Yours in Christ, but not Fall Out Boy, Paul."

/t. said...

ahh,
the letters

timeless favorites!

i've always loved Paul's letters to the roman tax collectors:

she said...

for the record i would like to proclaim that my knickers (if i owned any) are not wadded, knotted, wedged, soiled, twisted or otherwise distressed. they may however, be lying on the floor where i will step over them for days as if i didnt see them. grrrrrrerhahahaha

leelee said...

Hey Bulldog...I think I told you about that tune Puggles....take a peek at Kitchen Concerts, that tune is on your list as well :-)

Sassy Blondie said...

Pugsley, others may have fallen for this sham of a post, but you really laid the Lamby out for slaughter.

Write your own stuff! ;)

Sassy Blondie said...

I may forgive you for putting up some of my fave songs however...I'll think about it.

CruiserMel said...

First - to comment on your music player: sooo cool. Who knew a pug had such good taste in tunes?

Second - Pink beat me to the punch. Your kids are really cute.

Sometimes Saintly Nick said...

[:-)

'nough said.

puerileuwaite said...

Serena - If it's YOUR heaving bosom that's involved, then maybe I shouldn't send a puppy over to do a full-grown Pug's job.

***

Cathy - Actually, the tollbooth scene isn't from MY warped imagination. It's from "The Godfather". That particular comment was my "homage" to James Caan.

But have you read Paul's other letter to the Corinthians, by chance? The one where he asks them what's so darned special about "fine Corinthian leather" (as used in 70's vintage Chrysler Cordobas, as fawned over by Ricardo Maltaban of "Fantasy Island" fame)?

***

Leelee - You made me blush! Please don't tell the others, because I'm supposed to maintain this rugged "Macho Pug" facade.

(It was my choice in colognes that clinched the deal, am I right?)

***

Phosgene - Lamb Harvey Oswald DID attempt to fulfill the mission that day. But on the way out the door in the AM, the WRONG package was grabbed, and ACTUAL CURTAIN RODS were brought to work INSTEAD of a Mannlicher-Carcano bolt-action rifle. And now you know the rest of the story. Good ... day!

And I geard a rumor that if you repeat the word "knickers" enough times, they disappear off of the female. I can't wait to try it!

***

Revree - I'm here! So scoop me off of the glass and run me up the floor. However, even though I'll be your Rebound Pug, I prefer straight-in shots.

***

Corn Dog - She wore that same dress when we went out. The whole night had that creepy "There's Something About Mary" vibe to it. Apparently, EVERY time she hooked up, she used that dress to serve as a record of events transpired (sort of like Rosemary Wood's Tape Recorder from the Nixon days).

And you are too rough on yourself. If you ARE under a rock, then it's the coolest place to be.

***

puerileuwaite said...

Enemy - I sorta expected you to have the longest, most intricate comment. So I am a little surprised. ;-)

***

Limpy - You touched on a favorite subject: Paul's prolific letter writing. There's a comic (his name escapes me at present, but he's been on "That 70's Show" and others) who mentioned Paul's letter to the Apostles, as follows:

"Dear Apostles,

How was you weekend? Mine was good ... "


***

/t. - I heard a rumor THAT was the letter which finally resulted in his own crucifixion. Death and taxes have ALWAYS walked hand-in-hand, I'm afraid.

***

She - The Pug likes to "dabble", benefiting from murder and theft whenever possible. And he also wants you to be his dame, so he'll send a car around with Vinny and Knuckles to take you back to his place for some wine and linguine.

***

Lamby - You should be. Some livestock just seem to have a gift for triggering comments. You are blogging gold, m'lady. And I am quite fond of you.

***

Pinks - Well I'll have to look you up in that case. ;-)

***

She - I'm glad you warned me. I tend to "freak out" in unfamiliar environs, and may have mistaken them for a camouflaged pug trap!

***

Leelee - That tune has always been a favorite (along with most of The Beatles' stuff). But yes, I DO remember it was one of your Sunday Concerts as well.

***

Sassy - You always have a knack for exposing and seeing right through me. I don't mind the exposing part. But hey, my responses WERE my own, and were they not enough? Are you one of those "Is THAT all there is" ladies? Because if you're asking if my love will grow, I don't know. I don't know.

And the tunes allow us all to listen to the same stuff, wherever we are. Just like being able to gaze up at the moon, knowing that it's also Sassy's / Leelee's / RevRee's / Serena's / Lamby's / CruiserMel's / Pud's / Girlgoyle's / Party Girl's / Corn Dog's / Cathy's / Enemy's / ... (and so on)'s moon. But NOT Limpy's / CrashTest's / Mighty D's / /t.'s / (and so on's) moon, because that would be uber-gay.

***

CruiserMel - You like my taste in music. We can build on that. And you said my kids were cute, so I'm assuming kids are okay. As such, I'll be right over for our date and whatever it leads to (I better bring all my stuff in case it morphs into a LTR).

***

Saintly Nick - I'm with you, I think (I need to research your emoticon to make sure). I worried that I may have "jumped the shark"* (* a reference to "Happy Days", where Fonzi ski-jumped over a shark, and the series rapidly lost viewers from there; or to put it another way: reached the other side of the mountain, where it's all downhill from here) with this post. Lamby is comment gold, but politics can be death for a blog.

Ok no more politics.....
that leaves religion and Knickers, we could expand it to include other underwear.

corsettes and stockings gets my vote!

Kate said...

umm Pugsley... did you delete my comment about Hilaries outfit? hummmm

puerileuwaite said...

Leelee - Given that it''s an "either or" proposition, I suspect you know what my preference is when I'm in your presence!

***

She - I wrote to you. You are a good friend to both Lamby and Yours Truly.

***

Cathy - Oh no. Let's rule out religion too, and stick to knickers (although technically it's better when knickers do NOT stick back). In fact, I'm thinking of a future post on J. Edgar Hoover's all-time favorite knickers, just to lighten things up.

***

Pinks - Well you DO have that new camera of yours, and presumably, a few of the items you mentioned. So get busy!

***

/t. - Knockers are also preferred. I know I never knock 'em (though I have been known to knock against them).

***

Kate - No, I didn't. In fact, I have never (at least knowingly) deleted a comment on my blog, other than my own (to correct typos, usually). I DO recall reading it, and thought I replied to it as well. Hmmmm. Do you have one of those outfits?

***

Anyway, I just wanted to remind everyone that this post was in NO way intended to bash my dear Lamby (whom I adore) or ridicule her beliefs. I tease the Lamb because I am very fond of her, and Lamby IS indeed a favorite of mine. So I regret any discomfort this may have caused you, Lamby.

We are all entitled to our beliefs, and as someone who is usually "middle-of-the-road"* (* which means "most" cars attempt to swerve to avoid me) on most issues, there ARE grains of truth for Yours Truly in every statement Lamby made. This post was simply my silly attempt to put an (attempted) humorous spin on a few topics that ARE important to many Americans in this election year. Anyway, like Sometimes Saintly Nick wrote, "'nuff said".

Enemy of the Republic said...

In all seriousness, I get tired of arguing with folks. Sure, I am more in Cathy's camp, but Lambie also says things that I do share. I also love them both. Each one is sincere and practices their belief system; there is no hypocrisy--now that I hate.

I support The Mighty Clown in 08--hell, why not?


And I agree with She: Obey the Pug. Let's get jackets.

Pink said...

Oh dear. My days of pornography are behind me pugsy ;)

Pink said...

I left you a special limited edition gift over at my place.

NYD said...

Fight fire with giggles.
I like that about you, Pug.

puerileuwaite said...

Enemy - Well put. But remember: I will need a special jacket so I won't pee on the zipper.

***

Pinks - Just KNOWING that you did porn makes me want you even more! And thank you for the gifts ... most stores have beefed up security so I can no longer get near the displays ... for some odd reason.

***

NYD - Whatever the reason, liking The Pug is a rare attribute, so I'll take it anyway I can get it.

she said...

i cant make an obey the pug jacket; but i can make a t-shirt! whos in?

puerileuwaite said...

Normally I'm not into t-shirts endorsing things, but in this case I will make an exception.

I have one design request though: for authenticity, when you rub the belly of the shirt, a red button should pop out front-center just below the waistline.

leelee said...

lol....

I'd wear an "OBey The Pug" shirt

let me know how to order..

Pink said...

I'll take a t-shirt.

Normally I don't wear shirts (like knickers) but in this case, I'll make an exception.

puerileuwaite said...

Leelee - It's not so much "how to order", as it is "how you have to pose in it once you DO have one".

;-)

***

Pinks - Ok, agreed: t-shirt, SANS knickers. I like the way you think, lady!

The Phosgene Kid said...

Disappearing Knickers? I could never get those X-ray specs to work.

cathy said...

I'm not very good at obeying orders....

....you might have to whip me. LOL

leelee said...

Since I'm obeying...I'll await your instructions.

RevRee said...

That's a mighty fine music playlist you have there! Where by chance did you find that?...

*mmuuaahhh*

puerileuwaite said...

Phosgene - The key with those X-Ray Specs is to send an EXTRA quarter in with your order. Then they send you the real deal instead of those cheap knockoffs.

In fact, I'm using mine right now to tell which melons are actually in season!

***

Cathy - What a coincidence. I JUST found my passport and cat-o-nine-tails. Now all I need is to book passage on the Poseidon. I'll be there to turn you over (or if you prefer" "capsize") my knee, "the morning after" we arrive in port.

***

Leelee - The good news is that my instructions will be very detailed and explicit. The bad news is I've hired some guy in Hong Kong to write them, so who knows how coherent they'll be? I guess we'll be lucky if we don't wind up with extra, unused parts after assembly.

***

RevRee - Hey sexy! One can find ... um ... all sorts of delights ... if one knows ... where to look. Looking strictly at eye level can cause one to miss out on many pleasures.

For instance, did you know that you can get better deals on cereals if you learn to look DOWN the shelves? They're every bit as tasty as the name brands, for a fraction of the price, too!

That reminds me: I'm getting low on milk (for the cereal).

Kate said...

just stopped by to have a listen to a bit of Deep Purple before hitting the hay...

Sleep tight my little furry pugster!

Pink said...

Ok but only if I can wear my stillettos.

Pud said...

Please may this blog not become a political breeding ground!

puerileuwaite said...

Kate - Wow! What good taste! Not only do you like the Pug, but Deep Purple too? I was hooked BEFORE I learned those 2-things.

***

Pinks - Please do, bur remember: don't walk on the Pug's waterbed; walk on either the Pug or the "wild side" instead. Preferably both at the same time.

***

Pud - Agreed. Politics (especially these days) is at least 98% unfunny. And I don't want to drive you away from my blog and into the desert again, so I will choose wisely.

Bottom line: MORE breeding* (* which I would like to talk to you about) / LESS politics.

cathy said...

ok pug but first I'm going to hide my melons.

leelee said...

No parts go unused.

puerileuwaite said...

Cathy - They can hide, but they can't run!

***

Leelee - Whew! Did "The Sunshine State" just radically increase in wattage? Or is it just me? Regardless, that IS a relief, as my warranty clearly stipulates that all parts must be used according to design!

puerileuwaite said...

(I really need to see if I can squeeze my new post into this tight little weekend ...)

leelee said...

;-)

cathy said...

You could be wrong there.They are pretty ripe.

Pink said...

New Post!

New Poooooooooooooooooooost!

(but if you can't squeeze it in - squeeze me instead)

admirer from afar said...

Hi Pug

Just wanted to let you know I came across your blog awhile back and have been a big fan ever since. Keep up the great work and keep us laughing.

Sassy Blondie said...

You suck! I'm sicker than sick..practically on my deathbed...and I still post more than you! And you call yourself a man?? What the hell, Pugsley?

(I think that's the meds talking, so feel free to disregard none of it!;) )

The Phosgene Kid said...

none of the melon was wasted...

Pink said...

Just like a typical man, you are, pugsy...male dogs are just the same as humans! All talk and no action...all wham bam thank you man in the beginning with posts every night and twice when the kids aren't around then it peters (pardon the pun) down to once a week then once a fortnight...now what are you going for? A new standard of once a month?

Hell, you shoulda at least married a girl if you're only gonna satisfy her twelve times a year.

(and I sometimes use that word 'satisfy' very liberally, if you know what I mean!)

Pink said...

Comon Pugsy

Get it up!

(the post, I mean)


:-p

jin said...

OOoooohhh.... there's music here now!
Kewl.
Yes, I know... I haven't been visiting... but I've been thinking about you every day!
errr... ok, maybe not every day.
Almost, tho.
:-D
I swear.

puerileuwaite said...

Leelee - Look for me at the show! (I'll be the one who looks like he has WAY too much money. Oh, and I'll also be wearing a tropical shirt, khaki shorts, and black high-rise socks to blend in. YOUR assignment is to take a picture of me and post it on your blog.)

***

Cathy - Well then. In that case, I'll have to perform the Pug-patented "thump and squeeze" test.

***

Pinks - Well then. In that case, I'll have to perform the Pug-patented "thump and squeeze" test.

***

Admirer - Thank you for the kind words! Most people prefer to admire me from afar, or not at all. I'm glad you commented, and I hope to see you back here on a regular basis. On that note, I hope to POST on a regular basis.

But like I've told every boss I've had: my work is not to be laughed at. Unfortunately, however, in this case my blog doesn't have an H.R. Department.

***

Sassy - No, I call myself a Pug. Get it straight, lady! (No, seriously, get "it" straight. Oops, looks like you did!)

***

Phosgene - Why do I have a feeling that line is so familiar? Where is it from? Well, I DO know this: where there's a delicious melon, there's probably a fertile patch close by.

***

Pinks - Heck, I'd satisfy a woman 12 times a day, if I could. ;-)

Get it up? With all of these people watching? It's way too much pressure. Women have it easy. They are ready to blog at any time, no matter how many people are watching and jeering.

***

Jin - That's what we told mom and dad after we put them in the Rest Home. THEY didn't buy it, and neither do I. Have you ONCE baked yourself into a cake and had it delivered to me? No ... I didn't think so ...

Pink said...

Well pugsy...MY schedule happens to be free every two hours....what do you say we put that to the test?

leelee said...

I'm going to try to find you at the show Puggles....watch my blog. But be aware I am there till 9 each evening (YES including super bowl sunday...THAT SUCKS!!!!!!!!) so I don't know when I'll get to posting your pic..but I'll try!!

jin said...

Would you believe me if I said I was thinking of you whilst handling my pie?

Serena Joy said...

When, Puggy? For the love of God, pup, wheeennnnnnn are you doing a new post?!:)

Pink said...

Yawn.

How January of you.

NYD said...

Why post anything new when you're still getting some action out of this one.
Love the way the comments morph. You are a truly great conductor, lil'pup.

puerileuwaite said...

Pinks - That is one test I am willing to study for, though I do hope you grade on a curve.

***

Leelee - Well at least I'll know where you're at. You know how jealous I get.

***

Jin - Well then, I suppose I'd better stick in my thumb and pull out a plum! Technically in my case it's a dew claw. Wait, this isn't one of those Sweeney Todd deals, is it? That would be my luck.

***

Serena - So ... new post, then. Would that be all? Or do e also need to run off somewhere so I can make it up to you in other ways?

***

Pinks - Glad to see January go. Maybe February is more my month, as it has both Groundhog AND Valentine's Day.

***

NYD - Thanks buddy. The key is healthy doses of neglect, with the occasional sprinkle of momentary involvement. Then it's just a matter of using my tuba sparingly.
