November Tweets of the Month
I always vow whenever I’m stuck for an idea to mine my @8days2amish twitter feed and just harvest snappy ideas from there.
But I hardly ever do this.
It just seems too easy. And what’s the point of devoting hours each day to a non-paying pastime unless it’s really challenging?
• World’s greatest sales people must work for Spam. Think of the intrinsic hurdles they must overcome just to get calls/e-mails returned.

• Bedlam is an uproarious situation. Bed lamb is a rural farm scandal.
• Women look in mirror and see flaws others cannot detect; men look in same mirror and see perfection others cannot detect.

• The right thing may not always be the easy thing, but it’s always the right thing. The trouble is that easy's always easier and always easy.

• You’ve lived in same small town too long when you realize you're personal friends with all the guys on the highway billboards.
• Consternation is an acute feeling of dismay; constantsternation is chronic.
• Because they haven't released a new album in 10 years, I propose next Rolling Stones record be called "Gathered Moss.”
• Daughter, 9, said she wants to go to Amsterdam. Why? Said she thinks it'd be cute. She thinks it's Hamsterdam.
• Hate to always be so PC, but shouldn't podiatrists begin describing the little toe of dark-skinned people as something other than”pinkie?"
• Even if you despise war for all its inherent inhumanity, you have to admit: The History Channel would be pretty boring without it.

• Men arrested for public urination prevail if they succeed in getting trial before a jury of pee'rs.
• I wonder if the competitive artists who submit fancy patterns on toilet paper care if theirs is used or if they just don't give a crap.

• I wonder how guys like Bach and Beethoven reacted when during meltdowns someone told them to compose themselves.
• Told daughter, 9, "I love you. I'll love you forever." Said she feels that way so sometimes. I told her she'd grounded till she learns the value of lying within family dynamic.

• I believe wife would be more open to romance if I didn't insist she dump a big bucket of Gatorade over my head after every successful boink.
