The NY Times now has a section dedicated to non-political good news:
Shouldn’t Stephen be the one being comforted?
Unless people’s shoulders are rough.
What? No, we need more people who can teach you how to suck it up! Life never promised you a rose garden.
…but kudos to the NY Times. Human interest stories always welcome.
My sister put her hand on my shoulder and said Nope. They’re pretty hard.
True, our nation’s infrastructure could be more comforting!
Come to me, Pig. I’ll console you with my bear hands. (And then consume you. Heh heh heh)
Sorry, but my favourite road signs these days are either “No Left Turn” or “Hard Right Turn Ahead”. But if a Guillotine is in use nearby and the road results in a steep decline, the sign “Stop Ahead” would be useful indeed.
Californians are soft enough.
Cause Americans of the lowly variety sure ain’t gonna get any compassion, even concern, out off these GOP robber barons in control, of America now.
Uhh I don’t think that’s her shoulder.
Hear! Hear!, Pig.
“Merge Left”, and “NO Right turn” makes SO MUCH MORE SENSE nowadays.
My sign is “Slippery When Wet”.
But come winter, she’ll be giving everyone the cold shoulder.
Don’t we have too many of those now?
Is that neighbor Bob? He HAS had a bit of a rough time lately.
Soft shoulders…ok…but I’m conflicted about strong arms.
The sign said “35 ahead”. There were 4 of us in the car, so we got through there pretty fast. – Steven Wright
Yes. Yes we do.
Pig is just an old softie anyway.
Still, i would encourage more courage.
Suck it up, Buttercup!
Yes, we need more of those. We also need people to tell us that even though life may be rough, with enough perseverance and determination, we could actually succeed
We need more silent, leaning dwarves?
I need a couple dozen of those.
“If life is so fair…why do woses have THORNS?!”—Tickle Me Emo
That is very similar to an Archies comic strip from years ago. There was a sign – ‘Soft Shoulders’ just like that one, and one of the guy characters rested his head on one of the gals. I forget who, it was many years ago.
Next up: Cold Shoulder!
