Personally, I predict a come-from-behind victory for the big O*...


Apparently it's not just apostrophe errors that follow McCain's campaign around. He's plagued by hyphenation problems, too! Shouldn't this be written as "come-from-behind"?

I do find it amusing that the headline notes that "...McCain predicts victory." Well, duh. Someone's gonna win the election. But whose victory, exactly, does McCain predict? The headline's not specific, and the "come-from-behind" line makes me giggle (not just because of the hyphenation issue, but also because it sounds slightly and oddly sexual) too much to take it seriously...

* The innuendo in my own headline was quite intentional. Politics are dirty, and so is my mind, dammit!

HAHAHA Come-From Behind Victory. I dont even know what to say...It sounds like the name of an underground blatantly homo sexual film...

Freakin' pirates. All they ever want to do is talk about some sort of booty...

That's fitting ... I've often seen the big O come from behind.

Ha. Sorry. Well not really. That was fun.

I'm I'm inclined to agree that McCain would most likely be pitching, it's still a pretty disturbing image. Thank you very much, Ms. 'phile. :P

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

Haha...BB, I knew someone was gonna go there! Thanks for not disappointing me (I'd be sad if mine was the only dirty mind around here)!

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

I'd tend to agree with you, Evula, except I'm not sure that the cyborg that is Cindy McCain actually has sex, so I'm not quite sure who McCain pitches to... Sorry about the disturbing imagery. I hope you can keep your dinner down! :)

I do what I can, GP, I do what I can. And what mind is worth meeting if it's completely clean?

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

Exactly, BB! I wouldn't know what to do with a completely clean mind if I ever came across one (except, of course, corrupt it a little)! :)

EVula said...

Okay, so I was okay up to the mental picture of him "going to town" with a cyborg. The mental picture was bad, but the sound effects in my head are hilarious; lots of "my friend"s...

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

Haha! The sound effects I hear in my head when I picture this VERY bad mental picture are little gunshots...you remember in the Austin Powers movies how the Fembots all had little gun-like thingies on their boobs? So I hear tiny little gunshot noises...'cause Cindy McCain reminds me of a Fembot.
