That makes no cents.

It's disappointing that he didn't take the opportunity to make a change joke.

Old, white, male and bitter, and willing to blame the guy that has only been in charge from the time he was 67 to 71? You know, the real earning years...the time you start planning for your retirement.

Any success in life: All mine, no help from government

Any failure in life: All the government, not my fault at all

Obama's responsible for all government interference in Medicare and Medicaid, obviously.

I actually feel sorry for the guy. You know he lives alone in a single-wide trailer, eats day-old deli sandwiches off a battered TV tray while yelling at Fox news, and drinks warm beer into the night, cursing the barking dog six spaces down and muttering at the "nigras" who take money out of his social security checks. It's sad, really.

I first read that as, "Man throws penises..."

Do you realize that the GOP / Tea Party (but I repeat) platform is so stacked with cognitize dissonance that the entire party should be having therapy right now?

-Success is mine, failure must be goverment's fault
-Big government is bad, big government for your penis / vagina is good
-Jesus should be used to legislate, the Constitution does not recognize a national religion and yet we're all Constitutionalists
-Taxed Enough Already, Taxes are at historical lows

Surprised it wasn't West Virginia, sounds like way too many people I know.

Ladies and Gentlemen, a Republican budget plan; throw away all the pennies you have left, blame the black guy.

I keep wondering what's up with people blaming the President for every tiny stupid thing that happens in their lives. I get the whole tribalism thing, I get the whole unwillingness to take responsibility thing, but what I don't get is the whole "blame everything on one guy" thing.

Spend enough time online and you'll hear people blame Obama for their speeding tickets. I've read about people blaming Obama for minor zoning rule clarifications and sales tax. Presidents have always been scapegoated, but I've never heard a President scapegoated this much.

Changes in technology will probably cost me my job sometime in the next four years, and without retraining I'll probably have to take a position that isn't worth as much. If Romney wins, can I blame him?

No old man yells at clouds/throws pennies shop yet?

FARK, I am disappoint.

I've heard right wingers bring Obama biatching into weather discussions.

Nope, the "but but Bush!" idiots will declare you must still blame everything on Obama.

With Failmitter not using the Florida tag, it may as well have happened in East Naples, West Virginia.

Root explained to deputies that he "tossed in a penny as a contribution as that's all he has left after being taxed by Obama."

Root, who bonded out of jail yesterday after posting $1000 bond...



Apparently it wasn't his last penny. Taking after R-money and lying out his ass, I guess.
 
2012-10-22 02:39:41 PM  
Yeah, me too. Penises.

Or is it Latin, "penii"? (Latin scholars, show a little love. My plural might not be correct.)

Part of my job at work is to grab things out of the backroom from various departments and run them out onto the sales floor. There are some coworkers who, on nights I don't cover one given set of departments, do them instead. You're supposed to separate the departments because someone else has to stock the shelves with them and failing to separate them creates more work. Work for which I have been blamed, despite the fact that I do not do this, because I happen to be the guy that does those departments most of the time. A few nights ago, I saw said coworkers mixing the departments again, and asked them not to do it because I get yelled at for it.

The coworker invoked Obama.

I wonder what would happen to his brain if someone explained to him his taxes are (most likely) lower now than four years ago.

Thank you. Now I can say or write "Eat a Bowl of Penes" to appropriate parties and not get in too much trouble.
