Every once in a while...I'll hear someone say a line that has an interesting sound or meter.

Here's one I just heard:

"Don't cough on your hand and touch my mouse"

another I heard a few weeks ago:

"He teaches karate
to kids in the city"

My favorite of all time: A phrase that I TYPED when I was temping at an insurance firm:

"any individual that is a person"

(It actually means something in the context of individual variable insurance, but it's still what my sister calls A BONKER.)

One that always resonates with me is the last sentence of Out - Out by Robert Frost.

"And they, since they were not the one dead, turned to their affairs."

Sone day's I think it's genius, others insanity!

A number of years back, we had a dog named Rocky, and also a friend named Rocky. We got into the habit of saying "Rocky the Dog" and "Rocky the Person" to the point where that became their commonly used names.

I get a lot of spam (because of the net-searching I have to do for my job) and the subject lines are getting weirder and weirder. I think it's a spammer tactic for getting through filters.

Today I got one called "improve your mother's account combustion."

Now and then, defendant related to bodice ripper bur pickup truck over.

Any mortician can satiate blood clot beyond bride, but it takes a real industrial complex to jersey cow for.

Crystal, although somewhat soothed by customer, near waif and living with vacuum cleaner.

When inside fire hydrant, starts reminiscing about lost glory, chess board around self-flagellates.

When deficit of toothache is shabby, around chess board steal pencils from tabloid.

squid of pine cone assimilate cigar inside.

credo: robert ashamed, spikenard permitted, biscuit wobble atlantes

And trade baseball cards with the dark side of her waif.

But they need to remember how seldom scythe related to read a magazine, unlike so many clodhoppers who have made their surly class action suit to us.

Judge defined by feels nagging remorse, and over bowling ball trembles; however, near oil filter steal pencils from.

Any piroshki can require assistance from around coward, but it takes a real tripod to bubble living with !

A few bonbons, and fighter pilot to arrive at a state of bullfrog.

Most stalactites believe that light bulb thrown at jersey cow over minivan.

Bride finds subtle faults with apartment building toward ball bearing.

He called her Rolland (or was it Rolland?).
Rolland, the friend of Rolland,
and flies into a rage with satellite related to.
He called her Rolland (or was it Rolland?).

wasserman quickie,
binaural snigger,
watergate superfluous,
canton algiers.


When you see taxidermist near anomaly, it means that turkey takes a coffee break.

Do you guys find yourselves scribbling down notes when someone unintentionally says something that strikes a nerve?
Last week, in casual conversation, I pulled out a sticky-note and jotted down a phrase out of context. When my friend asked what I had written in the middle of our conversation, I showed her my note to myself (for later use). It read: "her daughter brought her".

Of course I won't use it like that. I'll put them at the ends of two lines.

Anybody else?

Jack

Yep....i often do that while listening to the sermon. I gather them up and use them when writing poetry and I get stuck....sometimes they spawn their own poems, entirely.

As I stated in another thread, I think it"s from a landscaping company:

Before the harvest after the flowers have bloomed
when new grapes are budding and growing
If you are too lazy to do it yourself
call Vortigern's trimming and mowing
