That's right! Today is supposed to be a day for all of us to remember the American Indians... Oh wait, it is actually "A Day Without Spanish-Speaking Illegal Immigrants". Nevermind.

CNN has today all hyped up, but so far it is just like another day here in New Hampshire. How is your day going?

Well... things here at the University are same ol'-same ol'.

If anything, our politcal campus is looking forward to "Drunko-De-Mayo."

Sun rose like it always does, and I'd be willing to bet that it shall set just the same as well.

I was forty minutes late for work because there was an onslaught of illegal immigrants protesting for American citizen's rights here in downtown San Antonio. Celebrating there love for Mexico here in America.

i say deport everybody. then check everybody's navel on the way back. innies goes to california, outies to maine. the middle stays empty for the bison and the bears like teddy intended. that's my great american plan for great american renewal.

Hey we're discussing chocolate here... navels are off topic. I'm claiming Maryland for the Innies!

If immigrants were MADE of chocolate do you believe illegal immigration would still be a problem?

Type II Diabetes? Maybe.

Sugar Rush? Definitely.

Chocolate Satiety???

Just something to ponder.

Heck, sure! A helluva mess, especially in the Southern states! Mexicans would'nt be able to walk across the desert borderlands anymore, though. Ironic considering the origins of chocolatl...

I'm dubbing Maryland Innies "MINNIES"!!

... and that's how we all decided to require chocolate in the updated minimum wage law.

Speaking of navels... Ever wonder why pictures of Adam and Eve show them as having navels?
-----------------
If Adam was created according to the image of GOD, then one has to wonder: why would GOD have a navel? And why do GOD need a penis? Who is he going to play with? Himself?

Don't tell me you never have days where it just seems like God is fucking with you?

Then again there was that cute little angel Lucifer. They made such a cute couple but supposedly he got a little uppity and God kicked him out (and God's been a grouchy so and so ever since).

Which reminds me of a joke: God was thinking about going on a vacation. The arch-angel Gabriel suggested he visits Pluto.

"No way," said God. "I nearly broke my neck skiing there 600 years ago. No way. Never again!"

"Well," suggested St. Peter. "Jupiter is nice."

"Jupiter sucks!" said God. "I was there 12 hundred years ago and I got food poisoning and terrible gas. Forget it!"

"Well," said Gabriel. "There's always Earth."

"Earth," scoffed God. "Are you nuts! Last time I was there 2000 years ago, I knocked up some jewish girl and they're still talking about it!"

-------------------
and, boy, has this thread gone off topic!

Happy Cinco de Mayo.

the navel is a beautiful and necessary thing in and of itself. it is NOT "where the stem broke off," you heathen dog. adam and eve were white europeans with sex equipment BECAUSE THEY WERE.

as told though the story does look like it was a setup. what omniscient being would ever rely on an abstinence-only policy? deities can read statistics. they're supposed to KNOW what works.

GOD: don't eat that.
EVE: don't eat what?
GOD: that, there.
EVE: i don't see it.
GOD: there! on the tree!
EVE: the snake?
GOD: no! the round thing! the fruit, on the branch!
EVE: oh! i wouldn't eat that. it's green!
GOD: it's not ripe.
EVE: it gets ripe?
GOD: of course it gets ripe. all fruit gets ripe.
EVE: is it tasty?
GOD: DON'T. EAT. IT.
EVE: ...
EVE: okay.

i actually don't know how many people are innies or outies. oh! wow! outies are only like 5%! obviously they were born to rule. so in addition to living in maine they should be given free post-secondary education.

To dpowers: Mille grazie! My day was going into the Spiral (unrelated to the anime) of shite, until I read the passage above and I had to laugh...


HAPPY DRUNK-O-DE-MAYO GC! Embrace Your inner-immigrant!
