...more nonsense

...I'm changing the name of my Teddybear to "Grumpy".


When Joseph and Mary showed pictures of baby Jesus to their friends,did they say,"Hey!..His eyes follow you wherever you go!"?...just wonderin'...

And maybe you can get Grumpy some friends and name them Thin Skinned and Fatwa. Sheesh.

I think they also said "Wow, Mary. He seems to get all of his looks from you."

"I don't want to talk about it," said Joseph.

doralong- I didn't think so.
I mean,..even a dog knows the difference between being tripped over,and being kicked.

kimberly ann- He's Grumpy when I'm grumpy.
You know,I really just want to be tolerant of folks,but there has to be some kind of common sense about them.

lorraine- No kdding.
The whole thing just irked the hell outta me.After some thought,I decided that the teacher really should have been up on the customs of the country she was working in.But still..

JP- BWAHAHAHA!!.."Get on the Donkey..we're outta here!"

Hat-Grumpy,Piffle,and Scoff!!...The Three Bears.

lorraine- The guy's a National Treasure in my book! :)

Well, I agree that the teacher should've definitely been up on the customs of her host country. And I've been trying to tell myself that my judgements are not from withing their belief system or culture, so I can't really understand, BUT ....... come on, some common sense here, people. I understand that it was offensive to them, and I understand she should've been more informed, but lashings, imprisonment or even execution? WTF?

This is going to polarize folks more than they already are. Great. Just what the world needs. More fanaticism, please!
