Fair enough, maybe your name aint Shirley. What this posting is going to demonstrate is how to get the gist of a posting. That way, you can skim through the posting that is basically a waste of your time, pick out a key word or sentence and perhaps leave some kind of comment. This would come in very handy if those who write those blogs that are just too damned long, highlighted key words or sentences, so we could glance though their on and on and on posting and give some vague, insincere comment.
So to help you, here goes. Although, thankfully this posting will not be one of those too damned long postings. 'Prick up your ears' and pay attention. Although, a 'prick up your ears', may seem like a rather painful proposition. And yes, I've used that one before in a previous posting that wasn't worth reading, either.
Sir Galahad and Sir Lancelot walked into 'Yee Olde Inn'. "My good innkeeper. We require a room for two knights.", said Sir Lancelot. "That is fine. You can pay for your lodgings upon your departure." replied the innkeeper. The next morning, Sir Galahad and Sir Lancelot, approached the innkeeper. "My good man" said Sir Galahad, "we wish to pay for our lodgings." Looking rather perplexed, the innkeeper responded, "Oh, I thought you wanted a room for two nights?" And yes, I've used that in a previous posting that wasn't worth reading, either.
Here's another repeat and one that has also brought great delight on Farcebook, everyone's favourite social notworking site. So this dude tells me his hobby is 'racing pigeons'. I asked him, "Who usually wins? You or the pigeon?" I have yet to sell my Marcel Marceau CD.
Of course, my blog never resorts to crude writing. This mean the following words must have happened in a moment of weakness. Evidently, the band Dire Straits are teaming up with that singer, guitarist, Chris Rea. The name of the band will be called 'Dire Rea' and they will be doing versions of 'Sultans of Shit' and Chris Rea's best known song, 'Road to Smell'. Of course, if you are not familiar with those preceding recording artists, none of this would of made any scents, I mean, sense...
I'm good at totalling numbers....'I hasten to add.' 'Conclusions, conclusions....' if I could jump over those two words, I would be 'jumping two conclusions.'
You may well of done the right thing and skipped all the way down to this photo. You could then forget about all the rest of the article and leave a comment such as, "Neat photo. Looks like Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet star, is staring at one of her adoring fans!"
So there you go Shirley, or whatever the heck your name is. You can get the gist of the posting by keying in on the highlighted words. And with that, this posting not worth your time to read....will abruptly end!
