Things I really do say- Part 2

Yesterday I was talking on the phone with someone who is considerably smarter than I am about most everything, but particularly about the issue I was discussing with her (which was effluents. Believe me, it's less exciting than you think). At some point in the conversation (the beginning) I got very confused. So I said:

"I don't mean to be a Stupidy McStupidpants, but could you please explain to me what you mean by that calculation?"

Silence.

Then she said, "Pardon me?"

I said, "Oh, sorry. I just said I didn't mean to be a Stupidy McStupidpants, but I just didn't understand what you meant by the calculation you just gave me?"

Silence.

Then, hysterical laughter. Actually I thought she was choking.

"STUPIDY MCSTUPIDPANTS!" she gasped. "Oh that's rich!"





I'm totally running for President. I can admit when I don't know stuff and people still like me and want to be my friend.

Ha, that's funny. Here's another one for you: My brother had a friend in high school who made up this name for someone who is particularly dirty or acting "nasty" Filthy McNasty :-)

Hahaha, what you said was funny. But did she answer your question!?

And the Jones Soda thing - they are manufactured in Seattle Washington. And if you shop at Target, check the beverage aisle. That's where I buy them here in Colorado.

I would so totally vote for you.

If for no other reason then I am sure you would make the road signs make better sense and you'd make it much more difficult for the stupid people to get a driver's license.

And the guy that ran Jason off the road would go to jail.

Chick in '08!

I'm so there!

Even though I can't vote, since I'm Canadian and all.

But I'm sure I can figure out a way to skirt the system if you're running. Or you could make your first law to be that Canadians should be allowed to vote in any election you run in.

I'm just lovin' the "you-ness" of you, y'know? Seriously, has a politician ever had the guts to run for office as a "real person", with real quirks and faults and even bits of freakishness?

It's so original it just might work. =P
