I Can't Believe I Missed It!

Oh, my goodness! Here it is, May 11, and I've just realized that I missed celebrating "Quatro de Cinco," the new holiday promulgated by Our Zero, The Won.

I propose that right-thinking Americans ought to ensure that "Quatro de Cinco" becomes and remains a cultural icon.

If he had not scolded the United States with his condescension about the nation being ignorant of other cultures and other languages, then he wouldn't come off as such an ass.

You know Ilion, I used to be a very nice guy. The more you compel me to comment on this guy the more of a potty mouth I seem to have.

Go figure.

There is noting potty-mouth about 'ass' -- it's the correct name for what we now call "donkey," from the same root as 'asinine.'

"If he had not scolded the United States with his condescension about the nation being ignorant of other cultures and other languages, then he wouldn't come off as such an ass."

Exactly, which is why "Quatro do Cinco" *needs* to become a cultural icon.

It's amazing, it's it?

Everyone laughs about Dan Quayle and the 'potatoe,' despite that:
1) that spelling was taught in Indiana when he was growing up (I'm younger than him, I'm from Indiana, and I recall being taught the mnemonic devices "Tom, a toe" and "pot-a-toe")
2) the card the school gave have him had it as "potatoe."

But, to laugh at the ass Obama goes out of his way to make of himself just isn't cool. How odd.

Of course, up above, I menat to write "Quatro de Cinco."

"Quatro do Cinco" would be the holiday for illegal aliens from Brazil.
