Today's Words Gone Wild all come from the keyboard of that wild and wacky "editor." Perhaps they defy definition according to all known laws of nature and man, but I'm giving them to you to try.

You've Been a Little Ruined by American Culture

Whether you live in the US or not, deep down you're a little American.
And there's nothing wrong with loving American culture, but it may have negative effects on your life.
Slow down and enjoy what you have. Reconnect with life's simple pleasures.
You don't need to be in a consumerist rat race. Life's too short to overwork yourself!

***You Have Not Been Ruined by American Culture***


You're nothing like the typical American. In fact, you may not be American at all.
You have a broad view of the world, and you're very well informed.
And while you certainly have been influenced by American culture (who hasn't?), it's not your primary influence.
You take a more global philosophy with your politics, taste, and life. And you're always expanding and revising what you believe.

Roxan said...

Doctor Who, Myth Busters, Dexter, Penn and Tellers Bullshit, The Riches, Dr. G, anything about forensics.

Roxan & TC, my weakest subject was Math, too.

My God, Roxan, you eat okra?! I think I'll just have some of TC's pizza -- and wash it down with a Miller.

I like both of your dance songs.:)

Serena Joy said...

Hi, Snowelf! I've seen you over at G's place, and I'm so glad you dropped by.

English & Math were my two also. And I watch the same shows you do, albeit I haven't yet decided how much I like House. And Mystery is my genre. Yes! Lots of wisdom in your answers, Snowelf. Thanks for playing!:)

"Fer-vent," was all the dog could say because she did not know how to use prepositions.

Roxan said...

Excuse me I said FRIED okra. Don't eat that nasty stuff in the can. Only FRIED. Get it? Good. LOL

Corn Dog said...

My neice has informed there are TV shows in the internet now like Grey's Anatomy and Heroes so I may start watching TV on the internet. I will not watch TV but I will play on the internet.

Serena Joy said...

I think you'll always be true to yourself, CD. And it is MY fervent hope that you never get flesh eating bacteria. In fact, I hope I don't get it, either. Which dog said fervent? Did Dinky do that? LOL.

I keep hearing that shows are available on the internet but I haven't watched any of them. Let me know how you like it if you try it.

Roxan, I took a vow to never in this or any other lifetime eat okra. Therefore, fresh, canned, fried, or petrified is irrelevant.:-)

The Pug was into hot nuns, so he searched for the closest fervent.

Serena Joy said...

Puggy, I saw that hot nun run through here. Want me to catch her and let her know you bathed?:-)

Lobster. Yum.

I don't think ANYbody could survive another Bush presidency.

Corn Dog said...

No it was the Big Dog that said, "fer-vent." Dinky is much more eloquent and uses prepositions.

Pug, I suspect your day job is a history professor. You sure know a lot about it.

Serena Joy said...

Wow, Dinky uses prepositions? That is one clever pup. You ought to YouTube her speaking.:-)

Chairity: A stage of insanity from having too many fucking chairs in one's house.

Gluttonious: A pack of sheep ready for market; often preceded by the word glorious

Attrack: A woman with ample creamy amplitude has one of these

Serena Joy said...

LBB, that's so cool that you also like American Gothic. So sorry about your furvert problem. I recommend another shot of Vanilla Stoli. And my dear, I wish you -- and me -- continued continence. Or at least someone willing to change our Depends.:-)

I like Chinese food, PH, but I am hopeless at accounting. I'm probably not going to get any taller, either. But maybe you will!:-)

Ah, Trée, a spaghetti man -- a man after my own heart. Overrun with chairs, are you? Two words -- yard sale. LOL. Love your song choice -- bee-yew-tee-ful.:)

Trée said...

S, I make a spaghetti sauce from a fourth generation recipe (my great grandfather brought it over from Sicily) that is head and shoulders better than anything I've ever had at any restaurant. The meatballs melt in your mouth. Takes about six hours to cook properly and is a "sweet" sauce, using up to a cup of sugar. The aroma in the house while the sauce is cooking is sigh inducing. Bring some wine and come on over. I might even fluff your pillows. :-D

Serena Joy said...

Sss-weeeeeet! If you're making garlic bread, too, I'll be there by dinner time.:)

Trée said...

Yes, we always have garlic bread with real garlic and butter toasted lightly on French baguettes. And tea too. So hurry over. I'll save you a seat next to me and you can whisper sweet nothings of appreciation. ;-)

Puffing on a Stoggie...
What men do to POSTURE!

Chairity...
A sexual act!
A bit different than couchity or floority..

Thanks Serena, that was fun..xoxoxox

Serena Joy said...

I'm eating first. Then maybe I'll whisper something to you. I'll try and mind my manners and not say something like, "Are there seconds?" :-)

Serena Joy said...

Thanks for the explanations, G. I was worried about stoggie. I was afraid it was something obscene.

Question: Why do they always pass out? Would chairity make a difference, do you think?

Let's go eat Chinese.:-)

Corn Dog said...

I know this is waaaaay down on the string but I wanted to report in that I have now watched TV on the internet. I quite like it. I watched a Grey's Anatomy. THere were only 30 second commmercials every once in a blue moon. I saw one show. I don't know how long it will last though because I think the characters are ninnies, except for the one black lady. She rocks.

Serena Joy said...

That sounds pretty cool, CD. Yeah, some of the Grey's characters act like ninnies sometimes, but that one doctor is very together.
