English for Dummies II

by 2Kens on December 25, 2018

And a Joyous New Year from your 2 Kens!

Warning: swallow coffee before listening. ‘Translated hotel signs’ segment is 3 minutes of ROFLYAO 

Can anyone here PLAY this game?

Casey Stengal paid a visit on the eve, and as visions of Choo Choo Coleman danced in our heads, the old professor likened the futility of his dreadful, ’62 Mets to the ignorance and utter incompetetence of those guardians of our native tongue. It’s true. English is dead. Don’t blame the Internet. We have seen the enemy and… Yep, our final Fun with English for 2011. Now dash away, dash away, dash away all.

YCMIU returns in January. Hold the fort.

Happy Christmas, dear friends!

Dylan said it best Their names, faces and abhorrent behavior have become the laughing stock of America.  Bad enough that Ted, Marco and ‘The Donald’ haven’t a clue what decorum and ‘acting presidential’ mean.  Worse, pulling us down with them into the muck and mire of a school yard game of kickball in a rain storm has […]

Loan Shark, ‘Ma’am We go away for a few months and return to find everyone drinking Corona. For the record: Cinco de Mayo happened when the fuming French stormed into Mexico over 150 years ago to collect a debt. In Pesos. Really? So while you chug your sixth frozen Margarita, be glad a Sicilian didn’t hold the note. […]

June swoon… If you’re lucky your bridezilla came with a pre-wedding warning label. If not, well, that’s why God made Reno, Nevada. 😉 Invited to one? Careful with that gift selection. A door closes, a window opens … Which makes better neighbors– fences or an Army base? Answer: depends on what’s in your garage. (begins […]

FAIL! Some things we just don’t want to know. Won’t stop FlyerTalk from printing it. Some one needs $30 badly enough to swim in sleaze. PS: you can use an alias. If at first you can’t abstain… YPSILANTI. We think it means, City of Braindead Lawmakers. 😉 You want cuffs with that? Without dumb luck she’d […]
