Re: Are the bobbyms taking over the world?

Hmmm, have you not heard of artistic license?

Re: Are the bobbyms taking over the world?

Yes, licentia poetica!

Artistic license (also known as dramatic license, historical license, poetic license, narrative license, licentia poetica, or simply license) is a colloquial term, sometime euphemism, used to denote the distortion or complete ignorance of fact, ignoring the conventions of grammar or language, or ...

Re: Are the bobbyms taking over the world?

It gives authors, poets and yes even posters the right to distort the silly rules of grammar and grandpa too!

He was too powerful for me. Much higher percentage of reptilian dna. He had 5 times my physical strength and was much faster. He did not feel the cold or the heat as humans do. He could predict the future and had hands that were enormous and almost indestructible.

hi bobbym

Given the mess our 'official' leaders are making, I think it would be a good thing for the bobbyms to take over.  You'd certainly get my vote.  smile

Because he edited it, that is why it is okay.

I appreciate that but I would not make a good leader. I would insist that less money is spent on the military and more on math education. Clearly a crazy idea.

Historically significant? I would delete the whole thread if I could. You are forgetting about licentia poetica.

But that sort of comment is precisely my reason for wanting to vote for you!!!

What other crazy ideas are in your manifesto?

They may have but once we have outlawed them they will be put to death. No more pistachios!

That may true for everything else but not those pistachios. By the way when I was a kid I loved them too but they were rare, we were very poor.

Re: Are the bobbyms taking over the world?

Now I have made sure that I and you are talking about the same pistachio.

By the way when I was a kid I loved them too but they were rare, we were very poor.

That is the same reason why I do not eat a lot of pistachios.

Re: Are the bobbyms taking over the world?

Less than 300 miles from where I am sitting are the second largest fields of pistachios in the world. It is only because of the greed of the men we talked about that they are not plentiful to everyone here. They ship to other countries ( thousands of miles away ) so they can receive government kickbacks rather than send them over here. The ones in our stores come from Iran!
