The Stinking Rose


Oh, mein little poodles, I am so glad we communicate through the internet; even that may not protect you. I whipped up a batch of hummus tonight - tasty, tasty, tasty, but I'm afraid I might have gone a wee bit long on the garlics. I ate a tangerine and brushed my teeth twice, I am a very small step from using Clorox as a mouthwash, and yet the paint on the wall in front of me as I type this is cracking and peeling. When I exhale, people on the far side of Oakland probably faint. If I expire tonight in my sleep, I'm sure it will be from Extreme Stinkiness. All I ask is that I be buried at sea and not in some hazardous waste dump.

If only my Breath of Death had been with me this afternoon. I had to speak to a group of students from a very down market vocational school about starting one's own business. Ugh. Even by the most charitable standards these kids were unimpressive; that's why I could have used my super wall o' garlic, maybe I wouldn't have had to smell them. As they were leaving, one of them assured the teacher he'd see him on Monday "If I'm not sentenced tomorrow." Hold on to that dream, sweetie, that's what I say.

  3. Your super powers constantly amaze me.

    Super Peenee!

    I think conviction, incarceration and rehabilitation will be the wave of the future. What’s so bad about free food and a place to sleep, health and dental plans, endless libraries and sex...I’m thinking up felonious crimes as we speak.

    With seamen as pallbearers?

  6. MJ always has something dirty to imply... its inspiring.

    It's nice for a person to have something to fall back on in instances they might not be sentenced. And good for you, Mr. P for shining the light. Keep hope alive!

  8. Good one on "The Stinking Rose". And I would like to say that I'm living my dream of owning my own business and working from home earning equally or more than the regular jobs by using http://debtfreeliving.ownanewbusiness.com.

    Thanks,
