If you gave a shit you'd help them when I didn't want your shitty food.
Also, if you now care so much, then mail this to them.

I think that one morphed into "Africa" in the 90's

You get the point.

Theism is to believe what other people claim, Atheism is to ask "why should I".

I think it's an actions speaks louder than words kind of deal.

The one I never understood or could not find the origin is 'lord love a duck'.

Tomato, tom-ah-to. Potato, pot-ah-to. Tongue

Yes, you're right.

A couple of my pals from London say Lord love a duck. I'm fairly certain it's cockney rhyming slang for fuck Smile

A man blames his bad childhood on leprechauns. He claims they don't exist, but yet still says without a doubt that they stole all his money and then killed his parents. That's why he became Leprechaun-Man

No

Actually, after reading that, I'm now even more certain that it means fuck.i think the author misunderstands subtle English polite society blue humour. Every example in that article reads perfectly well as fuck. I think whoever the author is, they've entirely missed the humour. I could be wrong though, that's really interesting! Thumbsup

Deepak Chopra is the king of sources for this kind of bs.

If anyone thinks I'm kidding, here are actual quotes. Here's a gem from this link: "happiness is a continuation of happenings which are not resisted" WTAF DOES THAT MEAN?!?!

I'm totally going to tell someone that the next time I hear someone say that!!!

That sentiment always goes through my head when someone say it. I can't help but think...gee, you mean you aren't so stupid as to keep on looking, I'm so proud. *perhaps with a little head pat to go with it, and maybe a 'bless your heart'*

I'm not anti-social. I'm pro-solitude. Sleepy

The fuck is that supposed to mean?! That statement, said as though it was the greatest of wisdom, effectively means nothing as it doesn't explain what, if anything, those shows are or why I should enjoy them!

Come on, they're funny in their ridiculousness! Yassou kalimera, yassou kalinihta, yassou kalinoches! Every proper Greek knows that.

(Sorry if you have no idea what I'm talking about Big Grin)

Enjoy it for what it is. A ridiculous show, meant for being ridiculed.

When I ridicule it with sarcasm, I am told to enjoy it for what it is, even though it is clearly very stupid and ripe for ridicule!
There is no winning, only stupid-induced frustration!

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.
