On Inflation.

Oh, I remember the days when i could take only a twenty to the movie theatre and have enought for two tickets a large pop corn, and a medium coke, and i would still have change left over(Some would say the same with about a penny, but I'm a teenager. Bare with me.). Yes! Those were the good ol' days, way back in 2003.
With that out of the way let me say "HOLY SHIT!" If i for get my student ID (yes the yneed proof I'm a student. Shouldn't it be blatently obvious! I look a year younger than I am!!) I better pray I can buy at matinee price or I'm screwed. I can barely afford a ticket with a twenty, and it has only been three years. How did the prices shoot up in three years. I remember finding goosebumps books in the store when i was five, and the yonly cost 2 dollars! How did this happen. Well I'll tell ya:
The world has gotten terribley money hungry. The world always was money hungry, but in recent years that hunger has turned into an uncontrollable adiction. But Embexxlement, Burglary, Armed Robbery, and Fraud was too slow, too tedious, and too risky. There was only one thing they could do. GO LEGIT. Thus inflation was born! And it keeps inflating!
And now I ask you.. How? How might we Deflat the inflation?! How I say?! The needle of commerce is too small, and too dull. We need something that can tear a hole in the inflation, that is so wide that they cannot hope to patch it! What is it we need? New currency? New Government? Or is it that we need to forget our greed, forget or lust for wealth. We need t olet go of what binds us to what we call "valuble". Sharing is the only method. Like files on the internet we must share our homes, are riches, or spouses, and health. We must share our hoes. THAT'S RIGHT ALL YOU PIMPS OUT THERE! GIVE YOUR FELLOW PIMP A FREE ONE!
Seriously think for a moment. If Currency were obliterated there would be no theft, because nothing could be stolen. There could be no coveting because everyone could have everything. There would be no bankruptcy because there would be nothing to be lost. The world would be at peace.
Or perhaps we could all just go back to cheating to get our money, like in the good ol' days!

If inflation could be cured by a small prick....etc. etc.

tear a hole in inflation??

Inflation itself has become such an inflated concept it has since solidified and called itself a planet. Save the earth transforms into save our right to be greedy beyond belief and slaughter those that stand in our way.

oh dear.

forgot where I was for a moment.

*steps off soap box and promptly returns to gutter, flagon of whiskey in hand*

Welcome back. I wondered where you had gone. You weren't here when they swept and washed the street.
This is my excuse for being wet through, pass the flagon.

Geoffrey Judge ( Ivor Feltersnatch), Wednesday, 11 January 2006 11:14 (fifteen years ago) link

indeed.

My excuse for being wet through is raising the glass too high and loosing concentration.

Ohwell.

Good thing we have a flagon.

StrangeDays (StrangeDays), Wednesday, 18 January 2006 12:24 (fifteen years ago) link

Is flagon a word to suggest a hybrid much like the word Liger or Tigon?

Or does this word describe a dragon with flatulence (very much like my wife, that)

Geoffrey Judge ( Ivor Feltersnatch), Wednesday, 18 January 2006 12:43 (fifteen years ago) link

Having a belching dragon for a wife sounds great! Think of the money you save on toasters.

It's true!

Mind you, getting a BJ is a bit painful

A bit?

M. White (Miguelito), Wednesday, 18 January 2006 16:00 (fifteen years ago) link

Bit, scratched and clawed

hmmm and here I was thinking you were referring to the rare wagon flag hybrid.

Commonly found in Westerns and the odd spasmodic encounter with a muse um ...

StrangeDays (StrangeDays), Thursday, 19 January 2006 09:00 (fifteen years ago) link

oh yes. I know of those majestic creatures well. It saddens me tho. They have been hunted almost to exinction. If only we could find an alternative mthod of storing out drinks, so that we may enjoy them. Oh well, one day we will discover the solution. One day the Flagons will be able to soar the highest skies, or swim in the darkest depths of the ocean without fear.

and run free across the prairies, wind in their bottle necks happily humming along to the chorus of banjos echoing across the landscape.

Ah, to the freedom of flagons. Wagons and flags.

StrangeDays (StrangeDays), Saturday, 21 January 2006 07:05 (fifteen years ago) link

Indeed. Allow me ot inquire if you are a member of the International Flagon Protection agency? If you are, then you are truely strange because I havent founded it yet. But I plan on Founding it soon, after I do everything else on my exstensove "to do" list.

Who put
the flag on
the wagon?

It was
the wag on
the flagon.

Aimless (Aimless), Saturday, 21 January 2006 19:18 (fifteen years ago) link

wag?

gee ... I didn't know flagon's had tails. I'm only familiar with the Australian species of flagon of which none, to my limited knowledge, have tails.

International Flagon Protection Agency, or IFPA, has been in existence since 1828 at which time it was noted many of the species were being destroyed in the common bar brawl.

I do believe it is a secret society as I have only heard hurried whispers in the corridors of educating facilities. That, sadly, is the extent of my knowledge of IFPA.

StrangeDays (StrangeDays), Saturday, 21 January 2006 22:59 (fifteen years ago) link

wag: n. archaic slang, a person known in society for their witty sayings.

The unholy truth of inflation is that it is not the MOB that is at it's root it is in fact the cathloic church contoling the mob who is controling inflation... why do you think they help the poor? and where did they get all the money of those hidius stained glass murals?... they robbed us.... CONSPIRICY

Next thing you'll be telling me the police are corrupt.

Damn it. Strange days has discovered us. We must eliminate him. did I just say that out loud?

Congratulations on a succesful operation!
Adds a whole new meaning to ""down under""

Geoffrey Judge ( Ivor Feltersnatch), Tuesday, 24 January 2006 07:46 (fifteen years ago) link

Oh my apologies Strange, I thought you had alredy undergone he operation when i posted the word "HIM." I shall try harder, in the future, to not make such a terrible, and unforgivable mistake.

((Censored)) ((Censored)), Friday, 27 January 2006 19:19 (fifteen years ago) link

Such gracious words ((C)) ... think nothing of it.

StrangeDays (StrangeDays), Saturday, 28 January 2006 02:02 (fifteen years ago) link

On a more serious note. I am truely sorry for aming such a hideous mistake.

that'd be like calling me a he.. no she?.. no he?... (feels where testicles should be) yes I was right the first time... I think

Gov. Jerry Brown (Uber Alles), Monday, 6 February 2006 07:32 (fifteen years ago) link

one month passes...
No .. the doctor said.. I am infact.. *gasp* female

Gov. Jerry Brown (Uber Alles), Sunday, 12 March 2006 10:21 (fifteen years ago) link

‘Doctor’?

Do you mean the swarthy unshaven one in the stained linen jacket, whose hands tremble constantly, and who leaps like an epileptic gazelle whenever he hears the word ‘malpractice’?

If so, you should seek a second opinion.

Rex (Rex), Sunday, 12 March 2006 18:34 (fifteen years ago) link

The doctor from "Requiem for a Dream" seems qualified enough.

((Censored)) ((Censored)), Monday, 13 March 2006 18:23 (fifteen years ago) link

Ohh, no, I wasn't sure about his credentials at all.

What you want is one of those nice private clinics, where the air is scented with jasmine and the nurses are plated in happy childhood memories.
