Milking maids get only minimum wage?

BarkingUnicorn: Milking maids get only minimum wage?


Depends on what they're milking and what they look like. That number could go sky high.
 
2012-11-27 03:00:05 AM
I had a totally different scenario in mind for the maids-a-milkin' and the ladies dancin'. Similar price I guess, maybe even cheaper.

This is a member of the Hall of Shame for "pointless stories that somehow get repeated by news outlets every year"

Other inductees include "March Madness wastes $100 trillion of worker productivity" and "college freshmen don't know what floppy discs are, don't you feel old now?"

Banal, clever when it came out in the sixties, but wretchedly trite by now.

They're paying way too much for some of those things. I'm not paying 100 bucks for a french hen.

True dat. And pigeons are free. You can pick up a canary for $30, so four calling birds is only $120.

Oh,that. I thought a New Jersey HouseWife was needing a murdering.

8 for $58 or 1 for $7.25?

Cheapest.fad.ever
 
2012-11-27 03:26:31 AM
I've already spent more than that for Christmas already, and I haven't bought any of that shiatt.

fark that, how much does the crap that gold-digger asks for in "Santa Baby" cost?

''Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie."


There are no "five golden rings." Song is a lie.

I do not believe they're factoring in the cost of getting real lords-a-leaping, and using faux leaping lords ruins the entire effect. Of course, inflationary pressures have kept lords-a-leaping out of the comfortable price range of ordinary folk, but you shouldn't shirk on quality when it comes to these things I say.

/I blame Obama for not developing lords-a-leaping supplies over here.

Fiiiiiiiiiiive golden riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiings

i've watched enough 80's movies to know you could probably head to your local 'urban' area and get a much cheaper rate on all that crap. May not be as fancy, but hey, It's christmas!

Blame President Obama? Try blaming the founding fathers for not making this country a monarchy!

Nice try not smart guy.

5 Golden Rings refers to the first Five Books of the Old Testament, the "Pentateuch", which gives the history of man's fall from grace.

Also, it's easier to sing.
 
2012-11-27 04:19:19 AM
Idiots....supply and demand. With this economy those maids that are milking will come practically free!

But $1000 swans? I am in the wrong business.

Teknowaffle: fark that, how much does the crap that gold-digger asks for in "Santa Baby" cost?


Real sable coat = $2000
54 light blue convertible = varies a lot, around $20,000 probably
Low-end yacht = around $300,000
Platinum mine = I found a small one on sale for $250,000
Duplex in LA = Let's say around $600,000 average
Tiffany's christmas ornaments = $50-150 each, so let's say $2000 to fill a tree
A ring = we'll go cheap here, $100

For a grand total of $1,174,100 to please Earth Kitt this Christmas.

They are colly birds, so four blackbirds at a cost of 0.
 
2012-11-27 05:28:17 AM
Not to mention the cost of having to clean up all that bird shiat.
 
2012-11-27 05:28:29 AM
And whacky morning radio shows all over America have their material for tomorrow.

Sick of this, and radar tracking of Santa on Christmas eve every goddamn year.

My true love would know that I don't want any of that crazy shiat.

Both 7 and 9 contain 5. The song does not state you have to own all rings of a golden subtype, just 5, and in no place does it state that they even have to be similar--Wormtongue.

What about donuts? You forgot donuts. You coulda gone to one of those good donut shops where they give you 13 and then it coulda been the 13 days of Christmas.

Where? I want a canary but they go for about $150 around here. Big demand for them at the coal mine I guess.

I was told the 5 Gold rings was originally: Ring-necked Pheasants
More birds...

What about the six-pack of Tuborg?
 
2012-11-27 03:14:23 PM
Tuborg is Danish, it's "two-four". Somehow I missed the packs of smokes though. I must have quit so hard I don't even acknowledge their existence.
