    Have you ever seen hindus eat in langars?
    Free food attracts them like bees. They squat toes up and eat food up from the floor with their feet onto the hands and into the mouth. They then gargle their mouth with water and spit it out in front of others eating adjacent to them. Hygiene is paramount ... of sorts. You get the gist. Ahem.

    You nailed it @T. These hindus eat with both hands cupped and shove their fingers wayyy into their esophagus as if it was their last meal. Then s uck lick their fingers one by one. Put their pinky in the ear drum to clean wax, s uck the finger again, put the index finger into their nose, lickity lick again, scratch their a zz and then wipe it on their sleeves. So goes the ritual.

      Daily for the past 45 years and with increasing frequency, I have observed Americans going into restrooms, pooping, and sinks in bathrooms remain dry. Because most Americans are too lazy to wash their hands after going poop. Is where the fist bump came from. Each knows the other one probably has poop on her fingers.

        I am not surprised that you don't know how fist bumps originated, not with the fact you hang around ladies rooms.

        That's pretty disturbing to know someone is observing others while they poop.

    So. After this joint closes down, where are you all going to blog? Ashleigh Banfield, the cub reporter on the ground at 9/11 ground zero famous for yelling "I smell cordite! I smell Cordite!" (cordite. the smell of explosives) has a blog on Facebook. UFO chat has 3 scrolling chatrooms on one screen. Which is 3X the fun...and with many features CNN refuses to employ. Anyway. Where are you all going to go? Besides to the grave if you are a decent womanizer.

    "A creamy baby." Indeed!

    January 24, 2015 at 7:48 am |
    • Philip

      Yes. Prisoners on the penal Isle of Australia used to breed with natives. And either donate the creamy baby to traveling priests or feed them to dingo dogs.

        Had baby Barack Obama been born in Australia instead of Kenya, he probably would have been dog food or an altar boy instead of Commander in Chief. He too was a creamy baby.

        January 24, 2015 at 9:26 am |
      • banasy©

        Australia stopped being a penal colony in 1868. That term should be relegated into the dustbin of history, as well.

      Did he ever give an explanation as to exactly what a "creamy baby" is, or is he still too cowardly to explain why he uses that epithet?

        No Banasy, he most certainly did not. His futile attempt to give a black eye to all whom are of mixed race was to no avail. No doubt his ancestral history has mixed races. Philip may be half Irish and half Swede for all we know.

        Many newbies here confuse @banasy and Chrissy as being the same person. Let me assure you they are not. I've been chatting with them here on CNN for, oh, a little over 3 years. Chrissy is and elderly woman who lives in upper state Michigan and drives an old Ford pickup truck. Banasy is a gal named Donna Banas whom I actually talked with on the phone. She and her hubby are suburbanite Chicago city dwellers and she is a part-time librarian's helper. They are both getting old and grouchy though. And enjoy tag-teaming up on me almost daily now.

        Why are you so ashamed of your heritage in India? You talk like one, write like one, behave like one. Therefore you (under many IDs) surely must be a terrorist raypist from India.

        January 24, 2015 at 10:37 am |
      • banasy©

        Philip, if you want to know why Chrissy and I dislike conversing with you, it's because you post lies like this for no discernable reason, other than to be an unpleasant prick.

        I am a library helper in the same way you are a squeeqee wielder.

        I live in in a town, not a city.

        Chrissy doesnt have that truck; that was four years ago when you talked about that. Get a clue. You don't read our posts, so you wouldn't remember that she talked about that.

        Neither of is are "old and grouchy"; it does get tiring having to defend oneself against a pathological liar, though. I suggest repentance for your obvious problem.

        The person you're talking to isn't a newbie. If you think that, you're stupid.

      That description fits a well-known (but called "decent womanizer" by old democrat women anyway) womanizer named Billy J. Clinton. His wife started getting really fat after she found-out everyone else had found-out about Billy messing up the White House with an overly obese younger woman.

      January 24, 2015 at 11:23 am |
      • Philip

        One big reason (besides population control) that abortion had to be made legal was because if it wasn't, millions of women and their co-conspirators illegally aborting babies would have to be sent to prison. And we didn't have that many prisons back then.
        There have been about 70 million legalized abortions performed in America so far, and God only knows how many went to Mexico for illegal abortions or used the trusty old bloody coathanger before that.

        January 24, 2015 at 11:36 am |
      • banasy©

        As I said, interesting revisionist history. Your take is....interesting, to say the least.

        Of course you understand that abortion has been around since man has been around to impregnate women. This isn't new.

    Many confuse sins with crimes. "Pay Caesar's things to Caesar (government) but God's things to God" says The Word. Meaning that you pay your taxes and pay for your crimes. Not deny them or try to weasel your way out of paying the courts what you owe. And where government orders conflict with those of God, you obey God rather than men.
    For example, if a person robbed a store, that person would have to turn himself over to the police in order to start the process of repentance. Simply bowing ones head and saying sorry to God for robbing the store simply would not bring God to forgive you. You HAVE to pay Caesar for your crimes. There is no way around it. MLK never did turn himself over. He went to great lengths to conceal his crimes of adultery. He should have openly confessed but he didn't. It wasn't his cheating ways. It was his ways of hiding his sins and his crimes that were his biggest fault. Just as Billy J. did. Tried to weasel his way out.

    January 24, 2015 at 11:50 am |
    • @banasy

      For example, during the days of Moses 3 men robbed the Tabernacle in front of thousands of eye witnesses. They were eventually caught, and returned what they had stolen and begged forgiveness and were forgiven. But God sent a powerful angel who executed those thousands of eye witnesses who had failed to report the crime to the authorities.
      Such is the case with family who know of familial abuses but keep them secret from authorities. Mothers and fathers who know one of their brothers raiped their own son or daughter but never bothered reporting it to the police are in hot soup with God. As are victims who keep it a secret.

      Tell this to somebody that is ignorant of all this.

      I am not.

      Lecture dismissed.

      Also, please research the reasons why only 2% of reported rapes ever go to trial, and what the victim has to suffer through when the defense gets his turn to slut shame. I doubt you will, because it is much easier for you to pass judgement on people than it is to empathize with the victim who gets raped repeatedly on the witness stand by flipping morons who think "boys will be boys".

      I read an account recently of a virgin who was raped, and what she went through. A virgin!

        January 24, 2015 at 12:25 pm |
      • banasy©

        Years ago, social media wasn't what it is today.

        Prospective employers look at social media, you know.

        People get fired for mentioning their employers on Facebook and other social media in a derogatory manner; it doesn't even have to BE derogatory...some, like my employer, do not want their names mentioned at all by their employees; this is one condition we agree to in order for us to be able to post online while at work. (Which, as I explained before, they're fine with, as long as we don't mention our library.)

        Plus, you have stated that your some purpose to wanting to know the name was so you could call and complain about me; piss off. You're an idiot if you think I'm going to fall for that; I'm not the stupid gullible female that you seen to prefer.

        You pretend to be so socially wise about the net, how you didn't know this escapes me; I can only surmise it is because you own your squeeqee business and have no reason toknow this.

        1% of all abortions are decided by dad's or family of pregnant women. Not by the pregnant woman or girl. And even Alabama lawmakers refer to families not wanting a biracial child as a reason for abortions. Get a clue. The idea of racists in America is nothing new, and I certainly didn't invent it.

      It's lovely that their mothers chose to keep then, isn't it? Kind of renders your abortion argument moot.

      There is nothing wrong with biracial children. And I'm sure you would be the first to admit that biracial doesn't mean just black/white.

      Obviously you feel that gives you full rights to continue to use racist epithets. Grand.

      Trying too hard, Philip, old sport. I invite you to walk up to a biracial kid and call them a "creamy baby" to their face. It will likely net you the same result as you calling them a nigger.

      Labels are labels, and you're very good at assigning them, and then justifying it as some sort of "lesson."

        I can't believe you just used the N word. I hate you more than ever now. Good freaking bye you old haggot.

        I can't believe you take umbrage at an analogy I used; you are a hypocritical piece of shit.

        I don't call them that because I have more respect for all humans; a trait we don't share.

        What I said was calling a biracial kid those two labels to their faces would result in you getting your ugly face punched in.

        I called nobody that name.

        You're dense. Fuck off.

    I remember that conversation @ banasy! And it was here on GPS and was in the past few months. In case you want to search the archives.

    What ended the baby boom of the 50-60's? AIDS and legalized abortions. Duh.

    After just a few years of marriage filled with constant arguments, a young man and his wife decided the only way to save their marriage was to try counseling. They had been at each other’s throats for some time and felt that this was their last straw.

    When they arrived at the counselor’s office, the counselor jumped right in and opened the floor for discussion. “What seems to be the problem?”

    Immediately, the husband held his long face down without anything to say. In contrast, the wife began talking 90 miles an hour, describing all the wrongs within their marriage.

    After 15 minutes of listening to the wife, the counselor went over to her, picked her up by her shoulders, kissed her passionately and sat her back down.

    Afterwards, the wife sat speechless.

    The marriage counselor looked over at the husband, who stared in disbelief. The counselor said to the husband, “Your wife NEEDS that at least twice a week!”

    The husband scratched his head and replied, “I can have her here on Tuesdays and Thursdays.”

    Two golfers are waiting their turn on the tee when a na ked woman runs across the fairway and into the woods.

    Two men in white coats and another guy carrying two buckets of sand are chasing her, and a little old man is bringing up the rear.

    One of the golfers grabs the old man and says, “What the hell is going on?”

    The old guy says, “She’s a nym pho maniac from an asylum, she keeps trying to escape, and us attendants are trying to catch her.”

    The golfer says, “What about the guy with the buckets of sand?”

    The old guy says, “That’s his handicap. He caught her last time.”

    This thoroughly modern young couple, more than slightly hung over from last night’s party, were having a mid-afternoon breakfast. What a party that had been! A real swinging affair, no holds barred.

    “Darling,” said the husband, “this is … er … slightly embarrassing, but I think I should ask. Was it YOU I made love to in the library last night?”

    His wife looked thoughtful for a minute and then said, “About what time?”

    Dear Son:

    Just a few lines to let you know I’m still alive. I will write this letter slowly because I know you can’t read fast.

    First the big news…your Dad heard that most accidents happen close to home so we moved. You won’t know the house when you come home as I can’t send you the address because the last redneck family that lived here took the house numbers with them so they wouldn’t have to change their address.

    About your father…he has a lovely new job where he is over 500 men. He is cutting grass in the cemetery.

    There is a washing machine in the house where we live now, but it ain’t working too good. Last week I put in 14 shirts and pulled the chain and haven’t seen them shirts since.

    It only rained twice this week: Three days the first time and four the second time.

    The coat that you wanted me to send you. Your Aunt Sue said it would be a little to heavy to send in the mail with them big heavy buttons, so we cut them off and put them in the pockets.

    Your sister had a baby this morning. I haven’t found out whether its a boy or a girl so I can’t tell you if your an Aunt or an Uncle.

    Your Aunt Olga gave up the birth control pill when your Uncle John bought a condominium.

    Uncle Philip drowned last week in a vat of whiskey at the Norska Brewery. Some of the fellow workers dived in to save him but he fought them off bravely. We cremated his body and it took three days to put out the fire.

    On the other hand, your father hasn’t drank since Christmas…I put a pint of Castor Oil in his beer and it kept him going till New Years.

    Three of your friends went off the bridge in a pick up. One was driving, they other two were in the back. The driver got out. He rolled down the window and swam to safety. The other two drowned, they couldn’t get the tailgate down.

    Went to Doctor yesterday and your father went with me. Doc put a small tube in my mouth and said not to open it for ten minutes. Your father wanted to buy the tube.

    We got a bill from the funeral home, said if we didn’t make the last payment on Grandma’s funeral bill, up she comes.


    PS I was going to send you $10.00 but had already sealed the envelope.
