or simply do not want to register with the government

I'm with 'em; the government is nothing but trouble.

So "bling-bling" can be used as a verb?
2003-02-09 03:02:30 PM  
"Floss" would be the verb, I believe. "[...] To floss"

You gotta keep those teeth shiny when you are a rap star.

The amish fascinate me. No really, they do!

I've actually got some amish blood in me, my grandmom was amish. Yup.

I think it's nice that they want to help, though it makes me wonder where they are getting all of this money...
2003-02-09 03:19:01 PM  
Yeah right.. I like how the article makes the amish out to be the good guys "volunteering" to donate money.

The only reason they're doing that is because the state is trying to pass legislation to make them pay a higher fee than they're willing to donate for road repairs. They should have to pay more because their stupid buggies are tearing the shiat out of the roads. Get with the times you freaks.

I hope they charge you guys by vehicle/horse weight like they do the rest of us.

I thought the amish were a myth. Just like bigfoot and aliens.
2003-02-09 03:20:23 PM  
Some of their money comes from coal fired meth labs and some from their tech support lines.

uhhhh...Pike, I doubt there's a lot of Amish surfing the web who're going to read that. Hard to run a hard drive by hitching a horse to it.

Kat: The Mennonites (they're more flexible with technology, but still use horse and buggy) up here sell their wares at the farmers' market. Some sell hand crafted furniture.

Blackbird: Whoa. You must have a different class of Mennonites back east. Here the mennonites are driving new trucks, and looking like they're making mad amounts of $$.

No Icy Hot Amish photoshops??

I'm saddened.

Many Amish sell things like quilts, honey, apple butter, furniture, etc...

People will pay a lot for custom made furniture.

When we added onto our house we actually had Amish people do neighbors were pretty confused by the random Amish people in the middle of the city...
2003-02-09 06:42:46 PM  
Amish people never fark standing up because they don't want people to think they're dancing.
2003-02-09 07:26:16 PM  
Will they accept donations via Pay Pal?
2003-02-09 07:49:20 PM  
Mr. Munson!
2003-02-09 08:17:39 PM  
The Amish are just something parents made up to scare little kids. Like the Boogey Man, or Michael Jackson.

I've got nothing. Nothing, I tell you!

How about Amish road rage?
"Get thee out of the way!"
"Go raise a barn!"
"Thy mother wears army bonnets!"
"Step on it, Yoder!"
"Place it up thy butter churn!"

Until you can drive a horse and buggy, you're not fully Amish. Before that, you're an Ahm-lette.

OK, I admit it, I have nothing as well.

Here, we'll just go with what everyone else has been avoiding:
