TMI Tuesday...


.
.
A Mr. Pete "Road Ratt" Gearhead from Sturgis S.D. asks...'Dear Mr. Knowitall, the other day when I was stopped at a red light, a car pulled up beside me. The windows on the car were rolled down, and a goofy looking fucker looked like he was reading my helmet stickers, as the light turned green he shouted at me..."Gay Ass Mouse", and the car sped off. I was too shocked to say anything back, but it bothered me all day. Do you know why he may have called me that'?
.
.
Dear Road Ratt, of course I can!
.
I'll bet you a six pack of Coors that one of your stickers read.."Ride to Live, Live to Ride" . Am I right? That my Burly friend is called a Chiasmus! It's a little known literary term, and rather than explain it, I'll give you some examples...
.
JFK.."Ask not what your Country can do for you, ask what you can do for your Country"!
.
Lord Byron.." Pleasures a sin, sin's a pleasure".
.
Mae West.."It's not the men in my life, it's the life in my men" OR "A hard man is good to find"!
'A waist is a terrible thing to mind'
.
The Bible.."Whoever sheds the blood of man; By man shall his blood be shed".
'There is no fear in love, but perfect love casteth out fear"
'Many that are first shall be last; And the last shall be first'
.
Hemingway...'Man can be destroyed but not defeated' AND ' Man can be defeated but NOT destroyed.
.
French Proverb.."Love makes time pass; Time makes love pass'
.
Oscar Wilde..'Work is the curse of the drinking class'..'The English have the miraculous power, of turning wine into water!'
.
Grouch Marx..'Time wounds all heels'
.
Kermit the Frog..'Times fun when your having Flies'
.
A Hangover...'The wrath of grapes'
.
OK, get the picture? I hope that this clears up any doubt about someone calling you a name Road Ratt...Good Question!!
.
All of this chiasmusing is making Mr. Knowitall grow weary.
I'll close this out with my favorite one...
"I'd rather have a bottle in front of me...Than a frontal lobotomy'!
I bid you Adieu....

ATTENTION: Something is wrong with blogger! Whoever comments after Brian Miller comment #4, they are NOT showing up! Not to me anyway. My comment count shows many more comments than 4, even comments left by me, but they are not showing up! I sure hope that this problem gets solved by Friday...Sorry!~! Grrrrrrrr....

I mean, I know the silly expression Gay as Christmas, but it still isn't really making sense to me.

TMI! Trying to assimilate all that makes me feel almost like I've already had a frontal lobotomy.:-)

My head is spinning but I thought all those sayings were hysterical. I think I'm going to fix myself a cocktail. Cheers.
