Since I was pretty popular with the kids at that high school, they gave me a standing ovation while their parents weren't quite sure if it was okay to applaud. And yes, I was a bit politically incorrect in some of the text of my speech... from a positive PC-incorrect posture. I also mentioned that this was the greatest country on earth and with motivation and drive, you could do anything. I told then not to qualify their citizenship with a hyphen, among other PC-incorrect things. The kids loved it.
    Its most encouraging that the kids liked it!

    Had some ladies in the office where I work get worked up because of me coming in from a high humidity day and saying it was "moist outside."

    Said, "You can't use that word!

    I said, "What word?"

    "Moist!!! It has gross connotations about female anatomy!!"

    I blank stared them down, and said, "You are NOT stealing any more of my words. It has NOTHING to do with female anatomy. I like my cake moist, I like my brownies MOIST, and it is MOIST OUTSIDE!! File a complaint if you want. I refuse to give in to this PC stupidity,"

    Well, at least I haven't been fire.....yet.....

    I refuse to give up my lexicon and freedoms one small cut at a time...

    You are kidding.... right?

    Well, be careful with claiming it's slippery outside during winter.

    P.S. I do see the problem, and choose to laugh, rather than cry and then PRAY that others will laugh too.
    I dig Chappell. He puts out a lot of meh, but he's one of the best we have these days. Noone and no group is safe from lampooning.

    I was about to challenge your choice of ladies undies that you like to wear, but then I see you're from Texas. Apparently you've made the correct choice.
