More Bad Words?

Happy Saturday! Here's a few more of the "bad word" pictures...  A couple of them, I'm sure were worth a lot of "bad words".. lol

 I see what looks like one lone person standing there looking at this ship that capsized with all the cargo still aboard... I'm sure this is one of those events that earned a lot of bad words... lol

Lets see... The driver of the pickup would have had a few bad words for the driver of the dump truck.. Whoever owns the pickup (if it wasn't the driver) might have had a few choice words.. Hmm.. What about the driver of the dump truck?  Think  he might have had a few once he realized what that "bump" was?

 Oops! Mechanical failure!  I'm pretty sure there were a few bad words floating about after this failure..

 Mama duck wouldn't be expressing any bad words, but I'm sure if she could talk, she'd voice a few...

 Another one of those pesky cargo container failures... Bad words all around here.. The crane operator that knocked things over, the owners of the cargo in the containers, the guys who are going to have to spend hours and hours trying to fix the mess... Yup. Bad words....

Someone forgot to put the wet cement signs out?  Oops..

Bad Words...

I'm sure we've all used a few here and there.. Some more than others, I'll bet... Just reading the newspaper or watching the latest news on your favorite channel on TV can sometimes give you a reason to use a few bad words... Right?  A friend sent me an email with some pictures of some very good reasons to use a few bad words... I'll share a few today, just to let everyone know that I'm still alive and kicking.. I'm still paying attention to live trials and following current crimes but I just haven't felt compelled to blog about them.. Yet. I'm sure something will come along one of these days that I'll blog about.. But for now... Here's a few examples of times when "bad words" would be very much excusable..

Now, I'm not a drinker, but I'm sure there are a few folks out there that would think this "tragedy" is worthy of a few "bad words"...

I'm sure the owner of the boat had a few "bad words" once he sobered up or got out out of the hospital.  How'd he manage to hit that post dead on like that? LOL

Do you think the home owner had a few "bad words" to say?

The farmer probably had a few choice words... Either for the employee to sunk the tractor or for himself while he dug the thing out..

Lets see... Lots of possibilities here for "bad words" here.. The crew in the plane.  The guys in the trucks and tractor.  The boots on the ground... RUN!

I've got questions about this one.. Did a worker back the thing into the mud hole?  Or did it just sit there and sink when the water level came up?  Either way, I'm sure there were plenty of "bad words" spoken about this situation.

I have more of these and will probably post a few more in the next few days... Have a great day, all!

A Sad Obituary

Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:

- Knowing when to come in out of the rain;
- Why the early bird gets the worm;
- Life isn't always fair;
- and maybe it was my fault.

Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge).

His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.

Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children.

It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer sun lotion or an aspirin to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.

Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims.

Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.

Common Sense was preceded in death, by his parents, Truth and Trust, by his wife, Discretion, by his daughter, Responsibility, and by his son, Reason.

He is survived by his 4 stepbrothers;

I Know My Rights
I Want It Now
Someone Else Is To Blame
I'm A Victim

Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If you still remember him, pass this on. 

The above was found in a message board devoted to true crime, namely in a forum dedicated to the Caylee Anthony case, but.. It fits so many other cases we hear about in the news... The poster said she'd recieved it in an email and the obituary was said to have been originally printed in the London Times.  I have no idea if it actually was.. Perhaps later today I'll do some googling and find out where it came from.  Someday it would be nice to see common sense make a come back... :-/
