Below is an extract. Is it from my holiday blog or a piece of classic literature?

'I've been awfully fond of asses ever since; they have a special attraction for me. I began to ask about them because I've never seen one before, and I understood at once what a useful creature it was - industrious, strong, patient, cheap, long-suffering. And so, through the ass, all Switzerland began to attract me, so that my melancholy passed completely.'

It has the asset of accentuatuating your well hidden appliances.
I think it is holiday blog material.
I wonder about Switzerland though, isn't it too cold there to actually
bear your ass?
Make an assessment, sir!:eek:

I'm curious: does anyone actually find puns funny; or is it simply fun to make them? I think maybe it gives you the satisfying feeling of having made a joke, when you've actually only committed an atrocity.

Making and appreciating puns are signs of higher intelligence, so your attitude isn't surprising.

Note to Dennis Nilsen: I think this rules out your theory; they're never this early in the day.

They're signs of being a particular sort of Smiths and Morrissey fan, I've noticed--the pseudoliterate kind. As is condescension (from below, invariably). I think you're auditioning for Helen Bach's clique lately.

Personally, I just listen to the music. I leave the telltale personality flaws to others.

Just stop being silly and showing off

Your remarks amount to nothing, except pseudo factualisms and complete and utter boring so-called facts :rolleyes:

That's a pretty good criticism of The Cantos. It only neglects the Jew-bashing.

Oh, and because it's you: same person.

Sincerely, I haven't a clue why you are going on about Jewishness :confused:

I am not a Jew, but even if I were, do you not think that you are wildlly pre-supposing the actual facts?

Okay, someone has questioned your pre-conceived beliefs in whichever form you need to take that sort of thing, but really hey, a hairstyle is not indicativave of anything other than being cooler than a dead snake's ass

So chill out Roman

Either that, or go on a nice holiday to a Roman holiday, please :)

Are you really this amazingly ignorant? Come on. Ezra Pound? Your avatar?

Do you really know nothing about him?

I wouldn't make an issue of it, but you clearly wanted to argue about something. Either that, or your English is on par with Ezra's Chinese. Or, you're on crack. (Hairstyles? Pre-conceived beliefs?)

But I'm not judging you. Promise.

P.S. Same person.
