Please enjoy today’s Franklin P. Jones moment for March 3rd, 2011. Have a happy What If Cat’s and Dog’s Had Opposable Thumbs? Day. Interesting Fact: There is an average of 178 sesame seeds on a McDonald’s Big Mac bun. (McDonald’s is a seedy little place.)
“Honest criticism is hard to take, particularly from a relative, a friend, an acquaintance, or a stranger.” Franklin P. Jones
I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s extremely deep Word of the Day. Isn’t that the truth. That’s why I flood myself with dishonest criticism. That way when the real stuff comes I might not notice. “Man! That Word of the Day was so dumb I ripped my eyes right out of there sockets.”
Please enjoy today’s Christopher Hampton moment which every bit as deep as anything else you may have read:
“Asking a working writer what he thinks about critics is like asking a lamp-post how it feels about dogs.” Christopher Hampton (Wow. It’s something I have to look forward to.)
Now it is time for the super nifty bonus Word (or Phrase) of the Week! Learn and speak English, it’s the Mother Tongue!
raffish (adjective, Pronounced RAF-ish) : 1: marked by or suggestive of flashy vulgarity or crudeness 2: marked by a careless unconventionality : rakish
Used in a sentence: “You are such a pooty head!” Immediately I regretted making the raffish comment. Sometimes I can be so base.
