"That last post wrecked my blog theme. I was working on a theme."

Meade: "What theme?"

Me: "My piss theme. I had a piss theme going. That's how I got to the dog that pissed off the Nazis. I Googled 'piss,' because I saw I had a theme going."

Meade: "What?"

Me: "There was the 'pee-o-meter' and... "

Meade: "Where was the piss in the first post, the Johnny Weir..."

Me (suddenly realizing I didn't use Johnny Weir's "pissed me off" and "heard worse in bathrooms" until the the second post): "Oh, yeah."

Meade: "Johnny Wee-er."

Me: "You're good with the homophones. The homophobe homophones."

Meade: "I'm afraid of homophones."

You didn't go on to "homophonephobe"

Self restraint.

traditionalguy said...

What did you say? Have you and Meade thought of using a translation program? This is a very charming post.

Meade: "I'm afraid of homophones."

That's what Titus said and you got all pissed off. Just sayn (in line with the theme).

You really missed skating yesterday, didn't you?

Paul Brinkley said...

Sounds like you just need to get back on track. You're in a loop now. Your intuition is to keep thinking about homophones and phobias. Once you shake that off - really shake it - your instincts will kick in and before you know it, you're in your element again. Remember: you're in control.

wv: inefris (heh, "ine")

Meade said...

@Trooper, I've said it before - Titus is a homophony from top to bottom.

Funny? Sure, he's funny. Until one gets tired of his one-dimensional transgressive humor, beneath which is seething hostility and envy.

His name isn't even "Titus." He is phony as the day is long.

(And notice, how the days keep getting longer.)

Meade is homophonic?

Hue new?


Trooper York said...

I intent to follow the theme by being pissy all day long.

Trooper York said...

That is to say that I "intend" to be pissy so don't be pissy about my spelling.

It is snowing in Brooklyn and I am freezing in the back room of the storm and my fingers aren't working so good.

I miss the Caribean.

Ann Althouse said...

"Meade is homophonic? Hue new?"

I call him Meadey.

Trooper York said...

I will have post later after I get the photos fixed about the warm waters of the Caribean. It was so wonderful. And you know what one of the best things about it was?
You are standing there floating in the crystal clear warm water and you can just pee whenever you want to and nobody would be the wiser. So you start to do it whenever it strikes your fancy with out a second thought. You don't even think about it you just let loose.

Of course it doesn't work out so good later in the buffet line. Just sayn'

mariner said...


Somehow I just knew you would raise the level in this post!

Trooper York said...

I aim to please buddy.

Meade said...

So long as you aim, buddy. Please.

Trooper York said...

Nah not in the water Meade. You don't aim you just seep. So to speak.

Trooper York said...

I guess you are not gonna invite me into the hot tub when I visit Madison though?

See how you can give up too much personal information on the internets.

You are standing there floating in the crystal clear warm water and you can just pee whenever you want to and nobody would be the wiser.

I assume you refer to the ocean, not the cruise ship pool.

Meade said...

Do you mean personal MIS-information?

We don't have hot California love tubs up here in America's Dairyland. We don't even have cool Kentucky cold tubs.

What we have are wet Wisconsin lakes.

That fish pee in.

Trooper York said...

The ocean of course.

I didn't even go in the pool.

KLDAVIS said...

Before I even had a chance to read this, I added the Piz to your last post...check the comments.

TMink said...

Meady, Beady, Big and Bouncy? Sounds Freudian to me. I would not touch that one with a 10 foot, well, I will not touch that one.



michaele said...

My first thought and I mean this sincerely...what fun for you both (and, as it turns out, for us) to be so quick witted.

c3 said...

The Brits would say you're "taking the piss" with the Professor.

Meade might retort "you can take your pissant comments somewhere else"

Me; I'll just stay out of it. I wouldn't want to get in a pissing contest with you.

traditionalguy said...

The phrase "full of piss and vinegar" is a Steinbeck dialog creation in his much censored book, Grapes of Wrath. It certainly describes Trooper well, especially when he comments on the status of us lawyers.
