OZYMANDIAS of EGYPT


I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said:—Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them on the sand,
Half sunk, a shatter'd visage lies, whose frown
And wrinkled lip and sneer of cold command
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamp'd on these lifeless things,
The hand that mock'd them and the heart that fed.
And on the pedestal these words appear:
"My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains: round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare,
The lone and level sands stretch far away.
- Percy Bysshe Shelley (1818)

Your next favorite band, Fireball

Lincoln? Sooo gay.

Guy #1: What, you got a problem with me cursing?
Guy #2: Nah, nah, it's just that, you know, sayin' "holy fuck" is like talkin 'bout Jesus's mom fuckin' his dad and it's not cool to talk about Jesus's mom fuckin' people.
Guy #1: Dumbass, Jesus's mom didn't fuck anyone. She was a fuckin' virgin. How do I know this and you don't? You're the Christian.
Guy #2: What are you talkin' 'bout? How could Jesus have been born if his mom hadn't screwed his dad? Wait, who was Jesus's dad again?
Guy #1: Dude, are you serious?

Mary gave birth to Jesus a virgin, she didnt stay a virgin. I mean, Joe is a pretty nice guy but even the meek and pious need a little summin summin now and again

Hi, friends,
Here's something I overheard last night on Church St. I had to stop and take notes because it was too funny:

Nerd 1: I posit that there are two types of people in the world. One, those who when angered, strike
Nerd 2: That would be him.
Nerd 1: Yes, that would be him, and two, those who when angered, turn and flee and....
Nerd 2: That would be you.
Nerd 1: Yes, that would be me.
Nerd 2: So those two do not mix well. [nerdy laugh]
Nerd 1: No. Nothing gets done. It's a horrible work environment... Well, we just... It's so frustr...
Nerd 2: Let me propose a third, rarer type.
Nerd 1: Very rare, of course...
Nerd 2: What would that BE? This elusive third choice!
Nerd 1: Indeed! One who does not anger easily!
Nerd 2: One who is rational!

Happy Valentine's Day!
Mandy
