    Rat should be doing time for assault.

    Rat’s other fingers curled up in fear of Rat trying to strike an accord

    OK, if I point a finger at someone, three more are pointed at me. That means three times three of 9 are pointed back at the pointers, 27 fingers are pointed at them, 81 at those people, and so on. There are about 80 billion fingers on the planet, so we’re going to run out of fingers after 23 recursive finger pointings!

    I usually use one finger on each hand.

    When I first heard that expression as a teenager I accepted it without question.

    Then in my early twenties, I realized there is a simple way around it.



    Point using my full hand.

    I’ve been doing it ever since.

    After Sunday’s touching tribute to Edee, we are now back to our regularly-scheduled mayhem.

    Rat’s only grievance is that he hasn’t been invited.

    And Rat responds with five-fingered diplomacy.

    Another case of Rat being Rat…… and the judge wasn’t going to look at the 27 glossy photos with the circles and arrows :-)

    Good work, Rat. He deserved that.

    If Rat were nicer, neighbor Bob would invite him to the party.

    Keep honking, I’m reloading

    Here’s an interesting development.

    A friend just received a jury summons for a U.S. District court. The summons came with a questionnaire to see if he would be considered qualified to sit on a jury for a federal court case. The questionnaire included a startling question, namely: Do you display bumper stickers on your vehicle, and if so, what are they? It just so happens our friend does have a bumper sticker on his truck, to wit: “Keep honking, I’m reloading.”

    Har dee har, very funny, right? Somehow I think he’s not going to be called for jury duty.This made Don and I wonder… what would happen if someone said they have a pro-_____________ bumper sticker on their vehicle? We suspect it would not disqualify them for serving on a U.S. District Court jury. But support the Second Amendment? Whoo baby, can’t have domestic terrorists serving as jurors! What this also means, we decided, was if our friend ever (God forbid) had to appear in court as a defendant, he would be judged by “peers” who think nothing like him.

    Just something to think about as we enter the new year.

    Rat is obviously a Five Finger Death Punch fan.

    As somebody who needs to wake up early in the morning for work, I am 200% on Rat’s side. (“But,” I hear you say, “how can you be any more than 100% for anything? The math doesn’t work out!” To which I respond, “Hit him twice!”

    I suppose I should criticize Rat for his violent bellicosity, but, hey, it was just a Neighbor Bob, and we all know Neighbor Bobs are expendable and replaceable….

    I’ve always liked this “three finger” quote. However, leave it to Rat to make it more … physical … than I’m used to.
