Ahhh... fewest wants, not newest pants.

universalmom on 2014-01-19 07:08:42
Yes, me too, newest pants

slow1 on 2014-09-20 07:46:18
lol I knew that was silly, but still - it seemed to fit.

montyb on 2014-12-03 14:20:47
The newest pants in my closet really fit me.

abra on 2015-11-01 14:20:46
Newest pants is one of the best alternate solutions, that I've ever seen.

larry149 on 2015-11-06 04:44:23
I have the fewest warts.

wvwoman on 2015-11-17 17:47:52
haha--i like fewest warts!

pegxpeg on 2015-12-15 15:55:15
Newer pants in the days of togas would have been cutting edge. Bill and Ted.
that was a really good one, aerie!

Paul Gauguin

And here I thought it was physics and the selective absorption substances have for certain frequencies of visible light. Pardon my ignorance (and chromatically-challenged eyes).

"Have you ever observed that we pay much more attention to a wise passage when it is quoted than when we read it in the original author?" Philip G. Hamerton

Kgun5 on 2013-01-11 12:49:21
This is probably true much of the time, but it certainly isn't always. A passage has to strike someone during its initial reading to become quoted in the first place.

joed on 2013-03-10 19:10:35
I tend to agree with Kgun5, who once said, "A passage has to strike someone during its initial reading to become quoted in the first place."

Kgun5 on 2013-05-30 18:22:03
Hehe...joed made me tickle.

bazinga on 2014-03-29 20:10:38
Kgun5 fades into obscurity.

marnita on 2015-09-13 05:11:42
But his quote lives on.

abra on 2016-05-20 11:39:14
Admin, Kgun is oft quoted now, he probably should have a bio.

"A leading authority is anyone who has guessed right more than once." Frank A. Clark

I like that one.

abra on 2015-05-18 10:24:06
I still do.

"There is nothing more contemptible than a bald man who pretends to have hair."
Marcus Valerius Martial

fredsevent on 2012-01-31 19:32:22
Seriously! That's the extreme of your contemptible scale! And if you solvers were wondering, I am not bald, but merely choose to part my hair very widely in the middle.

gryhnd51 on 2012-08-13 21:36:59
Ummm, Donald Trump comes to mind.

saipanwriter on 2013-03-23 02:10:55
This is meant as humor, not truth. Obviously there are many more contemptible actions.

gryhnd51 on 2013-04-03 04:47:29
Here's a bit of humor. Donald Trump is both bald AND contemptible.

figmo on 2013-06-17 14:38:27
Who knew they had "comb-over" back then?

puzzleme on 2013-07-06 02:39:37
A comb-over is such fun to look at when the wind is blowing.

gryhnd51 on 2013-07-06 03:09:26
Imagine what a comb-over looks like in the morning. And why doesn't Trump just join Hairclub for Men?

maradnu on 2013-09-26 09:54:57
There is nothing more contemptible than someone who pretends to help, while hurting someone and taking advantage of them.

Quizzical on 2014-03-05 13:28:07
Maradnu, isn't that the basic principle of politics?

puzzleme on 2014-10-05 07:31:42
I once saw a bald guy with a tattoo on his head of a man pushing a lawn mower. No contempt there.

kb83 on 2015-02-25 03:38:05
This is blatant hirsutism.

Morpeth on 2015-05-22 15:39:55
A classic Seinfeld moment, when Elaine yanks the wig off George's head, screaming, "I hate this thing! And this is what I"m doing with it!!!" and tosses it out Jerry's window.

nelnose on 2016-06-05 08:34:02
This quote just proves that baldness has pissed of men a very long time. I still have a full head of hair at 58. It's just not as thick as it used to be. But for my mother's side, I do have a donut coming. But, like the commercial says " I had it while I needed it."

"My parents only had one argument in forty-five years. It lasted forty-three years."
Cathy Ladman

jval on 2015-03-16 09:33:50
My parents only argued in Slovak. God knows what it was all about.

wvwoman on 2015-08-20 03:34:54
funny, jvak!

JenDiaz72 on 2015-08-25 09:43:31
Mine was in French and my husband's was in Spanish and I only knew the cuss words in both.

"It says nothing against the ripeness of a spirit that it has a few worms. "
Friedrich Nietzsche

maradnu on 2009-03-28 18:09:02
Well, Nietzsche was certainly wormy enough.

bansaisequoia on 2011-10-14 07:24:39
It's tough getting them to swallow their pills. You've got to hide them in their Purina Spirit Chow.

montyb on 2012-03-07 21:47:11
I've found that you can hide the pills in ghoulda cheese.

CarpeLanam on 2013-04-25 21:54:47
Isn't there a worm in the bottom of a bottle of spirits?

puzzleme on 2013-06-04 08:08:26
Q: What's worse than finding a worm in the apple you're eating? A: Finding HALF a worm.

"Love is substance; Lust, illusion. Only in the surge of passion do the two mingle in confusion." Calvin Miller

I had a surge of passion yesterday, but I took an antacid and felt better.

"He who never made a mistake, never made a discovery. "
Samuel Smiles


abra on 2014-09-07 15:24:58
His name is a complete sentence. I like that in a quoter.

kb83 on 2014-09-16 03:20:24
abra, you didn't know that his middle name was "never"?

Ian123 on 2015-05-06 02:26:19
Thought it was "always"

montyb on 2015-06-20 08:33:30
You're both mistaken; it was "Usually".

Barnabas on 2015-07-09 05:57:16
I made the mistake of dropping a wine glass two nights ago, and then discovered I had a broken wine glass on my kitchen floor.

abra on 2015-10-10 09:47:41
Maybe it's Samuel Seldom Smiles.

marnita on 2016-03-26 13:22:52
That has a nice ring to it, abra.
