Politics & Goo

Prickle and Goo (06/15/22)

Quotes from the Gloom:

“I’m like Easter; I come around once a year.” – Goodfella

Too many quotes to mention from this morning. We are actually thinking of changing the name of the A/O to “Politics and Goo” because of all of the mumblechatter. You had to be there… In any case, on to…

We had our annual sighting of Goodfella and enjoyed some serious “hot yoga” together.

Damascus declared that P&G is his favorite workout of the week (sorry other sites).

Combination of Blue Screen and Grungy were identifying the fact that Southern politics are a bit different from Seattle. Who knew?

Radar introduced us to the “Dying Cockroach” pose, though YHC does not remember calling that.

And Paper Jam performed his site Q responsibilities admirably by occasionally “poking the bear” to get the mumblechatter rolling (thanks PJ).
