"You don't drink coffee, you have coffee... Have is a big word."

"You have sex. You have surgery. You have second thoughts."

What do you have? What have you done?

pie?

Paddy O said...

Some people have a nap.

Other people take them. Those are the alpha nappers.

Don't Tread 2012 said...

I have a cup of coffee that I will drink.

I have a sprained thumb.

I have trouble imagining how you came to post this compelling distinction.

ndspinelli said...

I have a cold and I just took a good dump.

Paddy O, Yes one does have some pie..blueberry w/ vanilla ice cream is what I have. I sometimes have a dream about having that pie.

Of course, we have sex.

traditionalguy said...

what do you posses is a better word.

Don't Tread 2012 said...

The opposite being, 'what do you lack'.

Tim said...

Hope, tempered by reality.

Mick said...

What have You done to protect and defend the Republic and the Constitution law prof? Are you just another useful idiot? Have ANY of you supposed "conservatives" here done anything to defend the Republic from the Usurper and fellow treasoners? You are all just as bad as the Obot Internet operatives, and apologists. You all should be ashamed, especially any "lawyers".

Let's have lunch.

cubanbob said...

Well Mick, who are you voting for?

Mary Beth said...

I'll have another.

Shouting Thomas said...

One more cup of coffee before I go!

From the Dylan song, right?

It's a gloomy, rainy day in Woodstock. Good day to finally go over and pay my respects to Rick Danko and Levon Helm.

They're buried next to one another. In the Artist's Cemetery in Woodstock. That's beautiful, isn't it?

Shouting Thomas said...

One more cup of coffee before I go
To the valley below


That second line is kinda important, isn't it?

Insufficiently Sensitive said...

Those 'drink' and 'have' coffee concepts are so crude. One takes coffee.

Gahrie said...

I have always had the impression as a non-coffee drinker, that one uses coffee, the same way one uses heroin or cocaine....

Speaking of which, has anyone else read the Sci Fi short story where cocaine is legal, but caffiene is illegal?

McTriumph said...

I'm having coffee and watching Axelrod on TV. I have a President and his minions that believe the American citizens are fucking idiots. They may be right.

Scott said...

Have, take, do.

Different levels of engagement.

You can have coffee. It's casual.

You can take cough syrup. It's necessary.

You can do heroin. You yield control to it.

Nena's 99 Luftballons Song said...

I have got it. Thx.

Carnifex said...

@Paddy O

I took a nap once...in a field of grass...standing up...watching a joust...(not kidding).

Later diagnosed with sleep apnea, and narcolepsy.

I am the UBER NAPPER!!!!

As for what I have done...I have taken the 5th.

" Well Mick, who are you voting for?"


There is no "choice". Two sides of the same coin, meant to distract, divide and conquer. The Republicans allowed the Usurpation, and are also guilty of treason. They ran their own ineligible candidate (McCain-- born in PCZ, and needed US Code 1403 to become a US Citizen-- so he is not natural born either by the precedent of Minor v. Happersett, i.e born in the country of citizen parents-- needing no statute), and have others (Rubio, and Jindal) waiting in the wings.
BOTH sides have purposely voided the Constitution and have taken our sovereignty (why do you think there is no budget, and government by executive order-- (no legal POTUS means no law and no Constitution)). All should get the lamp post treatment, along with their Central Banker masters (who have been given trillions after they crashed the economy thru lawlessness and fraud), and the useful idiot media.

I will write in my own name.

I have Cushing's.

Also 3 Yorx.

I'll have a Revolution.

“thou shalt surely set him king over thee, whom Jehovah thy God shall choose: one from among thy brethren shalt thou set king over thee; thou mayest not put a foreigner over thee, who is not thy brother.” — Deuteronomy 17:15

"That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness".--- Declaration of Independence

Have pitchforks?

Dust Bunny Queen said...

I have allergies.

It is funny that people take possession/ownership of their illnesses. "My sciatica." "My arthritis." I don't want to own my illnesses, I want to be rid of them

F said...

We all have a growing tax bill.

Dust Bunny Queen said...

I will write in my own name.

Oh come on!!! be creative. I plan to write in Zaphod Beeblebrox "He was briefly the President of the Galaxy (a role that involves no power whatsoever, and merely requires the incumbent to attract attention so no one wonders who's really in charge, a role for which Zaphod was perfectly suited)."

Because in California, a vote for President that isn't a Democrat, you might as well be pissing into the wind.

Lynn Meadows said...

...and the cons of drinking up sex are what exactly?.....

I'll have another thank you.

ricpic said...

One takes coffee.

Only applies to coffee fiends.

rcommal said...

I've always been told you can't have your cake and eat it, too--and sometimes the other way around.

Well, someone had to post the obvious.

Why not me?

rcommal said...

By the way, did you know that old phrase is supposed to illustrate the economic concept of "opportunity cost"?

Hagar said...

Deemocrats "have sex."
Republicans make love.

rhhardin said...

Have is the only way to make a to-infinitive from must.

Bob Boyd said...

You can have a good laugh

or a bone to pick

You can have class
or if you're a law prof you can have a class
or in Ann's case both.

Freeman Hunt said...

Our pastor today mentioned that he sounds like Jerry Seinfeld. I'd never noticed it before, but he does sound just like Jerry Seinfeld. Imagine Jerry Seinfeld giving a lesson on God's holiness for an hour because that's what happened. It was good too.

Erika said...

I have faith.

Paddy O said...

Mick, are you over 35?

Paddy O said...

"Imagine Jerry Seinfeld giving a lesson on God's holiness"

So, what's up with holiness? Is it works? Is it grace? Are we supposed to do stuff? Are we not supposed to do stuff?

Mick said...

Paddy O said...

"Mick, are you over 35?"

Yes

"I have cancer."

Rockport Conservative said...

Have? My pet peeve is the use of present tense when past tense should be used Listen to any local newsreader, grit your teeth and understand what I mean. Have has its uses but HAD seems to have been forgotten.

firstHat said...

I have an itch. Wanna scratch it?
I once said "I have cancer, " but now I can say I had cancer.
May have a bath soon (maybe that'll take care of the itch).
I have a pacemaker because my heart stops when I swallow (truth).
I have good friends, but I have a small family.
I have the right to life, to vote, to speak freely and to bear arms(but I'd not bare arms at risk of scaring people).
I have three cats.
Once I would have said, "I have three dogs," but I don't any more.
I have a strange habit of sharing too much personal information in public places.


Dante said...

I thought "got" was taking over "have." I "got" milk. I "got" a bank account. I hear it on the news all the time. They do not mean "I obtained a back account," they mean "I have a bank account."

It's those stupid milk commercials.

Donna B. said...

Now I have a headache.

rcommal said...

Donna B: Given that it's something you *have*, OWN that sucker, baby!!!

That said (which I could not resist posting from what there can be no doubt is my lesser self), I hope you feel better soon.

How about a nice game of chess? Or at least a nice cup of tea?

: )

Emery Calame said...

No, I drink coffee.

Tibore said...

""You don't drink coffee, you have coffee... Have is a big word."

"You have sex. You have surgery. You have second thoughts.""


Wut?

Logically, the next step after having coffee is drinking it, so I don't get the purported dichotomy supposedly present in the first sentence.
