RELATED TICKERS: KO
After reading and listening to this-
My plan of adding to my KO DRIP goes unchanged.
My drafting of Tim Tebow late remains the subject of satire.
Ha, Ha that was totally the wrong link. I'll go try and find the right one.
In the interem if you have a goofy link post it up.
Is this it-
lets try this -
Maybe this is it-
Wait, what the hell was I talking about?
Oh yeah Tebow-
Paul " Pee Wee Hermans" Ruebens turned 59 today-
Well that makes two of us Franky-
If Bob Marly did'nt shoot the deputy. Who did?-
After careful review it was obviously the Sherriff-
I guess my whole point was , pick defensevly before a downturn and then wait to see which roosters come home to roost....
And don't draft Tebow-
I am in two leagues. In one my team is decent
The other is an 8 man draft. this is my first year playing fantasy, but man these guys knew NOTHING about football, look at my team

I tried a couple of times and still can't get it to work for me, I think it has to do with the fact that my computer is really old (I'm still running XP) and does'nt have much memory.
I'm waiting for the next windows to come out before I got another one, but the waiting is insufferable.
some of your bench players are starters in my league.
Heres what I got in a 12 man-
Ha Ha, I just had to slap myself.
I typed it all out and before I hit the post comment I realized that some members of the Motley Animals could be reading this and we don't draft until Thursday.
That would have been a very unstealth like move on my part.
Stay defensive my Freinds :)
Wow, I got lost!
I can't post it. I guess since it was a message from the Fool, they would'nt want me to repost.
Which is cool with me, I just thought it was a good time to remind people that if they have'nt been playing D-Fence for the past yr.
Best start looking.
The E-mail was about their new options and ETF's dillio.
That's why I said I'm comfortable with my KO drip.
Madness does not always howl. Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "Hey, is there room in your head for one more?"
I knew I always digged Mary Anne for some reason.
You could do a lot worse than Tebow.
Hey Hary, Drip'n KO is the real thing...
I got one of those messages from the Fool too...
blesto, I knew you would understand my point.
But let's delve into a deeper mystery-
What ever happened to the Bradys original spouses?
Could it be that Mr Brady and Carol were having a torrid love affair. Carol's Husband found out and confronted Mr. Brady
In a fit of rage Mr. Brady slaughtered his rival for Carols affection with his bare hands. And then went on to embark on the most heinious of acts.
Embezalling one million dollars from Mr. Dillard to pay for the dream house he had designed. And slowly killing his own spouse with cocktails laced with lead and arsenic.
Having Sam the butcher deal with the remains...
maybe this was the link-
Note to self-
Where did "piss poor" come from?Us older people need to learn something new every day.. just to keep the grey matter tuned up.Where did "Piss Poor" come from? Interesting History. They used to use urine to tan animal skins, so families used to all pee in a pot and then once a day it was taken and sold to the tannery......if you had to do this to survive you were "Piss Poor". But, worse than that were the really poor folk who couldn't even afford to buy a pot...they "didn't have a pot to piss in" and were the lowest of the low.The next time you are washing your hands and complain because the water temperatureisn't just how you like it, think about how things used to be. Here are some facts about the 1500s Most people got married in June because they took their yearly bath in May, and they still smelled pretty good by June. However, since they were starting to smell, brides carried a bouquet of flowers to hide the body odor.Hence the custom today of carrying a bouquet when getting married. Baths consisted of a big tub filled with hot water. The man of the house had the privilege of the nice clean water,then all the other sons and men, then the women and finally the children. Last of all, the babies. By then the water was so dirty you could actually lose someone in it. Hence the saying, "Don't throw the baby out with the bath water!" Houses had thatched roofs-thick straw-piled high, with no wood underneath. It was the only place for animals to get warm, so all the cats and other small animals (mice, bugs) lived in the roof. When it rained it became slippery and sometimes the animals would slip and fall off the roof.Hence the saying, "It's raining cats and dogs." There was nothing to stop things from falling into the house. This posed a real problem in the bedroom where bugs and other droppingscould mess up your nice clean bed. Hence, a bed with big posts and a sheet hung over the top afforded some protection. That's how canopy beds came into existence. The floor was dirt. Only the wealthy had something other than dirt. Hence the saying, "Dirt poor." The wealthy had slate floors that would get slipperyin the winter when wet, so they spread thresh (straw) on floor to help keep their footing. As the winter wore on, they added more thresh until, when you opened the door,it would all start slipping outside. A piece of wood was placed in the entrance-way. Hence: a thresh hold. (Getting quite an education, aren't you?) In those old days, they cooked in the kitchen with a big kettle that always hung over the fire. Every day they lit the fire and added things to the pot. They ate mostly vegetables and did not get much meat. They would eat the stew for dinner, leaving leftovers in the pot to get cold overnight and then start over the next day. Sometimes stew had food in it that had been there for quite a while. Hence the rhyme:"Peas porridge hot, peas porridge cold, peas porridge in the pot nine days old".Sometimes they could obtain pork, which made them feel quite special. When visitors came over, they would hang up their bacon to show off. It was a sign of wealth that a man could, "bring home the bacon."They would cut off a little to share with guestsand would all sit around and “chew the fat”. Those with money had plates made of pewter. Food with high acid content caused some of the lead to leach onto the food,causing lead poisoning death. This happened most often with tomatoes,so for the next 400 years or so, tomatoes were considered poisonous. Bread was divided according to status. Workers got the burnt bottom of the loaf, the family got the middle,and guests got the top, or the upper crust. Lead cups were used to drink ale or whisky. The combination would sometimes knock the imbibers out for a couple of days. Someone walking along the road would take them for dead and prepare them for burial. They were laid out on the kitchen table for a couple of days and the family would gather around and eat and drink and wait and see if they would wake up. Hence the custom; "of holding a wake". England is old and small and the local folks started running out of places to bury people. So they would dig up coffins and would take the bones to a bone-house, and reuse the grave. When reopening these coffins, 1 out of 25 coffins were found to have scratch markson the inside and they realized they had been burying people alive. So they would tie a string on the wrist of the corpse, lead it through the coffinand up through the ground and tie it to a bell.Someone would have to sit out in the graveyard all night (the graveyard shift.)to listen for the bell; thus, someone could be,"saved by the bell" or was "considered a dead ringer". And that's the truth.Now, whoever said History was boring!!!So, get out there and educate someone! ~~~ Share these facts with a friend. Inside every older person is a younger person wondering,'What the heck happened?' "Smile",it gives your face something to do!
