"It does not matter what the whip is; it is none the less a whip, because you have cut thongs for it out of your own souls. "
— John Ruskin

Thongs?!

bazinga on 2012-11-21 14:13:20
Whips and thongs- sounds kinky...

Thong: a strip especially of leather or hide.

I'm gonna hope this was about slavery.

It is our hope, Lurker..

Maybe he was going to make sandals out of the soles of his feet and was a poor speller. Kind of pointless.

It's the early bird that gets the worm. "
— Unattributed

Barnabas on 2012-02-03 19:46:58
Yes, but with bacon, eggs, pancakes, waffles, and the like... why would anyone want a worm?

locodad on 2012-02-13 03:00:35
They say they are low in calories and not much fat.

wvwoman on 2012-07-22 21:49:38
well, there's that.

iltquilt on 2012-09-03 13:00:06
Count me in on the "non-worm" breakfast. You cooking Barnabas?

puzzleme on 2013-04-29 08:02:28
It's also the early bird that gets the work.

montyb on 2013-07-23 19:53:15
So sleep late and you won't get worms.

figmo on 2013-07-25 16:43:20
My parents used to say that to me. It inspired me to sleep late.

sunseenli on 2014-02-27 03:38:10
Just goes to show the worm should have stayed in bed.

Barnabas on 2014-04-10 14:32:20
My pancakes are second to none, Iltquilt! And my omelets are pretty good, too.

trailcook on 2014-04-15 03:18:31
But it's the late mouse that gets the cheese!

wvwoman on 2014-05-16 17:22:46
dang, an omelet sounds really good right now!

universalmom on 2014-05-24 15:28:01

universalmom on 2012-04-11 18:32:52
What, you wouldn't feed a cow?

Queethebean on 2012-05-21 22:08:41
Maybe they only eat worship.

Default a thought-provoking group of comments

"In the final analysis, style is art. And art is nothing more or less than various modes of stylized, dehumanized representation. "
— Susan Sontag


babs on 2010-02-26 16:45:56
Hmmm...stylized, yes--but dehumanized? Not if that means lacking meaning relevant to the human experience and condition.

MoreMadMunch on 2010-03-11 19:55:13
Susan Sontag is a cynic. By definition, art or any representation stands at one or more removes from life and direct experience. Yet (also by definition) art serves to enhance life by calling forth from within a profound human response.

pootie49 on 2011-05-06 03:44:14
Susan had every right to be cynical. I dont think however in this context she was. I believe she was making a commentary on modern art. Which if closely viewed is at times extremely dehumanizing.

universalmom on 2012-04-18 00:21:35
How do you earn the right to be cynical?

lainie18 on 2012-09-22 01:33:56
I think she missed something about the best art.

msswitch on 2014-09-26 09:53:19
All one must do to earn the right be cynical is to pay attention. I think this is especially true when considering the connection between art in its broadest sense and commerce. As a general rule, our society regards and rewards the entertainer rather than those who seek and meaning via artistic endeavors.

LLapp on 2015-02-16 19:31:31
Such astute comments! So glad I stumbled into this room.

ronasid on 2015-10-02 18:13:55
I'm glad I solved this if only for the comments

tgreen517 on 2016-01-24 18:58:11
Yes, the best part is the comments. I think anyone can be cynical if they want to be, though. No need to earn the right. Its not like you could stop them.

Barnabas on 2012-05-01 19:14:44
It can be an awfully long five minutes though.

montyb on 2013-05-14 22:03:11
Is this really true? (I'll let you know in 5 minutes.)

montyb on 2014-01-18 11:36:35
Nope. (Sorry about the delay.)

dovid1946 on 2015-05-07 12:12:44

"You have a wonderful child. Then, when he's thirteen, gremlins carry him away and leave in his place a stranger who gives you not a moment's peace."

Please tell me this is a line from a movie??

afulton on 2012-01-25 14:35:20
I think it's a know fact for teenage daughters.

Lily H on 2013-02-02 23:44:05
Then some day those daughters grow up and have families of their own, and the cycle repeats itself. It's called paybacks. LOL!

figmo on 2013-07-16 16:35:06
You mean teenaged *boys* (note the use of "him" to refer to the child and not "her").

abra on 2014-11-30 09:19:47
The gremlins never really kept my son. Apparently, they tried to coax him over to the dark side. He gave us a few rough days, but mostly he was a loving and amazing teenager.

JD_1947 on 2014-12-07 12:36:17
. . I told my son about the gremlins . . . scared him so bad he didn't move out 'til he was 28 . . . .

montyb on 2015-05-02 10:25:00
Wait.....we're supposed to move out?
