Lucky D.G. Bulger.

I think I want to do work like this. So much more interesting than city council meetings or writing headlines.

    So? The guy in the White House has been talking out of his ass for years in a language understood only by other neocons. That’s how they communicate.

    The third grade called again. The spelling word of the week is “their.”

    Mon cul! Should we read something into the fact this guy’s ass speaks French? Is there some political message implied? Physiologically, I would think French would be a tough language for a sphincter to pronounce.

    I dunno, Mary. It’s totally within the realm of possibility when the ass of a New England patrician can affect such a folksy southern drawl.

    Now that you mention it, the similarities are interesting.

    This is very strange. My grandfather, may the devil go easy on him, came from a small town in Ontario and he had many strange expressions, not to say colloquialisms. One of them, used when he heard someone utter sheer nonsense, was “you talk like a man with a paper asshole.”

    Always made me think of a kazoo. And I agree with Mary. After all, how far back up the pipe would the guy have to modulate in order to get that back-of-the-throat sound of the “r” in rose?

    It’s not that implausible, Mary. During my time in the Air Force, and later working with contractors at IBM, I encountered more than one asshole who spoke fluent French.

    I showed the article to my fourteen year old son, who is taking French I in high school. He agrees that the “r” sound would be really tough. For him though, it would be the “r” at the end of words like, “quatre.”

    After some discussion we figured Finnish might work, but that is no comment on Finns as a people.

    Well, the Finnish language has a trill to the r. I think it’d be hard to roll that r. In addition, they have some odd vowel combinations that sound kinda’ like the number 2 in French. I don’t think Finnish is the way to go. As for Finns, give them a sauna, a stick to beat themselves with and a beer and they are an okay lot.

    But I wonder. Would it be easier to roll the r’s if you rolled the arse?

    “paper asshole”….

    My dad said that to my brother once when we were kids and I still don’t know where that expression comes from or what a paper asshole is, but it still makes me snort with laughter every time I think about my dad saying that.

    Gives new meaning to the French phrase “He farts higher than his ass.”

    A paper asshole is apparently someone who talks alot but doesn’t say much.

    Lo and Behold my dad said that phrase to me for years….but like most I never really knew what it meant. My thought is that the phrase “Paper Asshole” originated as a wartime phrase refering to guys who where so scared or otherwise whimps couldn’t hold their crap.
