Malpropisms and Spoonerisms

Post by dalehileman » Tue Feb 05, 2008 5:39 pm

In another board like this one but perhaps not so liberal as WW (which however in the interest of minimizing internecine warfare I cloak in the pseudonym EtaSmog) Admin requested a contributor to delete a post considered in its rigorous protocol to be excessively political in undertone. Here was the contributor's reply:

Perhaps so but alas alack I can't delete it because for some reason your algorithm won't let me. Or, quoting GWB:

"This case has had full analyzation and has been looked at a lot....[But] I think anybody who doesn't think I'm smart enough to handle the job is underestimating"
.
Or, paraphrasing another Presidential Pronouncement, I understand that unrest in EtaSmog "...creates unrest throughout the region," while "If you're asking me...would I understand reality, I do"

So, as I said earlier, please do exercise your duty to delete it from your perch high above mine [as after all it's your loss not mine]; because in the words of our Maximum Leader, "I can't think of anything more deep than that right"

In my profound relief afforded by EtaSmog's action in resolving this matter I feel as George did when he said, "I'm looking forward to a good night's sleep on the soil of a friend"
