Sometimes that depends on what I've had to eat and how far I have to travel.

We were suppose to learn in religion classes. They held a special sex ed class for us. The boys had a nun for an instructor and the girls had a priest. Needless to say, when the question and answer part came, nobody had any questions.

Rent a room to Casey Anthony? Sure. She qualifies, since my only rule is "no kids allowed."

labmonkey 4 years ago

Hollis... you are missing the point of FMK. You HAVE to F one, Marry one, and Kill one of the choices. I.e Rosie, Oprah and Whoopi. Marry Oprah so you get a chunk of her fortune. F Whoopi because you can make believe you are having sex with Guinan (then again, I am a Star Trek geek), and of course, kill Rosie because she is just a worthless waste of organic matter.

beatrice 4 years ago

In a scratching my head trying to know what makes him tick kind of way, but I'll have to go with like. We can't always be politically correct, and sometimes humor can be ugly and sexist. Doesn't mean it comes from hatred, however.


RoeDapple 4 years ago

Would you rent a room to HollisBrown?

You betcha, in a heartbeat!

beatrice 4 years ago

I'd be afraid he might accidentally light something on fire.

SofaKing 4 years ago

HollisBrown fears/hates women, especially successful, intelligent, heroic women. They make him feel small. He wants to feel large, but all these great women continue to do great things, making him feel even more insecure, until finally he has to play the big boy game of FMK.

Liberty275 4 years ago

"He wants to feel large"

Large what?

beatrice 4 years ago

I thought trying to belittle one another on these boards is what made us large.

Sorry sofa, but if the silly FMK game (you pigs) was based on people you actually know -- Sally down the block, Patty in accounting, and Jane with the missing tooth at the gas station -- others wouldn't know who you were talking about. To be universal to all the pigs who want to play such a game, the women have to be famous and powerful. Yes, it is crude and sexist and not the thing you would just toss into the room in the middle of a dinner party, but again, I don't see it as coming from fear or hatred.

I can see why some might want to K Ann Coulter rather than M her.

What if the choices were Anthony Weiner, John Edwards and Arnold Schwarzenager?

beatrice 4 years ago

Name calling. Drat, I broke my own rule.

What do you think of when you hear the name, "Brownback"?

labmonkey 4 years ago

Hollis, I agree with you on the left one I presented, but on the right I would have to F Palin, Marry Anne Coulter, and Kill Bachmann. If Anne Coulter even halfway acts as she suggest women act, I would take her as a wife over Bachmann.


FMK... Bill O'Reilly, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh.

FMK... Bill Maher, Keith Olberman, Chris Matthews.

FMK... The three you suggested. See... you can play too, and BTW, my wife and I live dangerously and play the game using people we both know.

Makes me think of the happy hour question, "Name three people in the office you would ... like to have relations with."

To avoid any awkwardness or hurt feelings, I quickly replied "I'm trying to think of three I haven't ... had relations with."

(Yes, I was joking.)

Should LJWOnline ♣Free The Blog♣ ?

rockchalker52 4 years ago

I wish I knew more about this topic. :-/

RoeDapple 4 years ago

The ♣Free The Blog♣ I refer to is one by Multidisciplinary about HWMNBN that went over one thousand posts before being shut down. Afterward it stayed on the most discussed list, primarily because certain posters were able to find a 'back door' and continue posting. It is well under wraps now, very little likelihood it will ever see the light of day again.

How many times have you posted this same stuff in the last two weeks, merrill? 15 times? 20 times? 50 times? Do you even keep track any more? Are you hoping that some new reader who doesn't know your history will be influenced by this obsessive copy/pasting of the same sets of links over and over and over?
