That does sound better, but I thought old geezes were grumpy and mean. That's what I hear anyways. :mrgreen:
Old geezes are grumpy and mean, so obviously you arent an old geeze lol. And you do got a pretty fine car.
And google.com, how many times do you have to tell us your 15? You've already said it like 3 times, i'm starting to believe you may be younger then that. I think everyone understands how old you are by now.
You should do a search on all the posts he has sent and it might reinforce your idea.
Haha ya, i've alreayd read alot of them but just pass them off but they keep on coming so i'm starting to wonder if its almsot another carEXPERT or something.
Im actualy 1 1/2 oh and
Hi Grampz yO was GOin dOwn , hehe, i now have 2 grampz :smoke:
No, on this forum it's definitely not a good thing. Too many argumentative kids that think they know everything. :laughing:
well, I'm a curmudgeon, not a geeze. :mrgreen:
I may be 'TOO' young to know this but what is a curmudgeon? :wink2: And your definately not old, your just more experienced.
I am not a crusty, ill-tempered, old man. But I believe you can say I'm about ten years older than anyone here. I still laugh,poke fun and watch Tom & Jerry. Grandpa, two times. :laughing: If we're lucky, we all get old. You can't get out of this world alive. :doh: :laughing:
oh........i'm not argumentative. i like to let people have their own opinion and not try to argue with them about what they think is right or wrong. and i won't make fun of you guys for being a couple of geezers either. :laughing:
a crusty, ill-tempered, and usually old man. KIDS?
Good thing thats definately not you. Your as friendly as someone at rush hour on the 401 :laughing: .
I hope that was meant as an insult. :mrgreen:
Haha, I meant whatever you think sounds better, i'll leave it up to you. :wink2: Your not crusty, maybe a little hard around the edges but definately not crusty. :mrgreen:
hehhehhe. This article is why I'm a curmudgeon...
A Few Good Grumps
By Jon Winokur, November-December 2003
Cranky, rude, indispensable. Our group of grumpy know-it-alls—including Bill O'Reilly and Andy Rooney—explain (and you better pay attention) why America needs curmudgeons now more than ever
Curmudgeons keep the rest of us cockeyed optimists honest. That's why we need them more than ever. (If you don't like it, lump it.)
When author Ray Bradbury was 13, he saw W. C. Fields standing on a Hollywood street corner. Excitedly, the boy approached Fields with a sheet of paper for an autograph.
Fields signed his name, handed back the paper, and said, "There you are, you little son of a bitch."
Fields was something of a twisted patron saint of curmudgeonry. He didn't like children, and he made no pretense otherwise. Like all good curmudgeons, Fields attacked false sentiment—because it devalues the real thing.
We call curmudgeons "irascible," "grouchy," "grumpy"—even "mean." But the world needs curmudgeons. They refuse to see life through the filter of wishful thinking and are outspoken in their devotion to the harsh realities of life. They protect the rest of us, stumbling about blindly behind our rose-colored glasses, from ourselves.
Still, these are tough times for curmudgeons. In an age of fast-food intellect, when crudity is mistaken for cleverness, the articulate, witty curmudgeon seems out of place. Try imagining such saber-tongued cynics as Mark Twain, James Thurber, and H. L. Mencken grousing about America in 2003. Can you imagine Mencken, a man who once called the American people the most "sniveling, poltroonish, ignominious mob of serfs and goose-steppers ever gathered under one flag in Christendom since the end of the Middle Ages," adapting to an era of Freedom Fries? (When Mencken was asked why he chose to live in the U.S. if he thought it was so horrible, he snapped back, "Why do men go to zoos?")
Slowly, almost imperceptibly, our nation is becoming curmudgeon intolerant. It's as though our American ears, like our American bellies, have gone soft. Look around and you'll see the triumph of the mindless happy. It began, perhaps, with the publication of I'm OK—You're OK and has culminated in more recent bookstore offerings such as You Can Be Happy No Matter What. On TV, upbeat Oprah rules, and, in their less-than-stellar 60 Minutes debates, Bill Clinton rejected one of Bob Dole's topics because it was too, well, cranky.
It's only in recent years that curmudgeons have gotten a bad rep, says author P. J. O'Rourke, the resident curmudgeon at Rolling Stone. "In Mencken's era, curmudgeons were role models," he says. "Robert Benchley, S. J. Perelman … even Will Rogers, for all his supposed friendliness, had a barbed tongue. The curmudgeon was above it all. He was a major player until the world was overwhelmed by the baby boom, and suddenly everyone had to be young forever."
Comedian Richard Lewis agrees that the domination of youth culture is at the heart of what's wrong with the world: "It's pathetic that people are trying to almost 'Frankenstein' themselves to stay young. I tell people my body is deteriorating as I'm standing there performing. And it's okay. Like the night I banged my knee slightly on the edge of a hotel bed, and the next morning it looked like I had Gorbachev's birthmark on my thigh."
O'Rourke and Lewis are unlikely curmudgeons. They're both barely old enough to have outgrown the label of "angry young man"—a temporary condition often confused with true curmudgeonhood. While curmudgeonry is not an inevitable part of aging (like wisdom, it doesn't automatically arrive at one's fifth decade, or even the seventh), a lifetime of experience does help nurture it. As Homer Simpson's father, Abe, says, "The good Lord lets us grow old for a reason: to gain the wisdom to find fault with everything he's made."
Curmudgeons aren't just funny or just mean. Part of what makes a curmudgeon is an almost allergic reaction to injustice. When confronted with it, he responds with two powerful weapons: disgust and sarcasm. In the early 1930s, after the success of the movie The Cocoanuts, Groucho Marx attempted to join a restricted swimming club near his new home in suburban Long Island. The manager told him that his application couldn't be accepted because the club didn't accept Jews. Groucho pondered this for a moment and asked, "Well, then, how about my son? He's only half Jewish. Can he go in the water up to his waist?"
The curmudgeon's excruciating sensitivity to life's countless insults—even those that may not be intentional—is both a curse and sustenance for his muse. A woman at a party once told James Thurber that she'd read a French translation of his My Life and Hard Times, adding, "You know, the book is even better in French!" To which Thurber replied, "Yes—my work tends to lose something in the original."
Curmudgeons are classic outsiders—they instinctively distrust conventional wisdom and challenge authority. They are proudly and aggressively out of touch with the pop culture. Curmudgeons don't read "relationship" books, they don't carry pagers, and they don't have TiVo. They don't do pilates, feng shui, or aromatherapy. Curmudgeons never watch "Must See TV"—and they know the very term is a contradiction.
"Popular culture has always been moronic," says O'Rourke. "It has to be, by mathematics. I mean, one-half of the population is by definition below median intelligence."
Curmudgeons are disillusioned, but only in the strictest sense of the word. That is, they harbor no illusions—something that allows them to think clearly. They howl against clichés because they prize originality. Take Dorothy Parker's response when a woman informed her, "I really can't come to your party. I can't bear fools." Answered Parker: "That's strange, your mother could."
Parker played a leading role in the golden age of curmudgeonry, the 1920s and '30s. At New York's Algonquin Hotel, she held court at the famous "Round Table" along with such acerbic wits as George S. Kaufman, Ring Lardner, Noel Coward, and Benchley. Groucho Marx described the scene as "an intellectual slaughterhouse."
If curmudgeons are occasionally testy, it's partly because they bear a terrific burden. Curmudgeons don't hate sinners, just sins. They don't hate humankind, just humankind's excesses—and they hold out secret hope for the improvement of the species.
"Curmudgeons are idealists at heart," insists 60 Minutes commentator Andy Rooney, who may qualify as America's Curmudgeon Laureate. "They're trying to straighten out the whole world. I think criticism is the best source of change." Rooney says of Mencken, his hero, "He was willing to inspect our whole world, using his brain without any sentiment—which most Americans are not willing to do.
"Still, I do have a very low boiling point, and I tend to get annoyed with a lot of things happening in the world. I can't stand how consistently people refuse to face the facts about issues."
for the whole article (and sadly, it's in AARP magazine...)
Wow, that was a long(ish) article, i read it all but i still dont totally understand it, i dont really recognize most of the names mentioned in it either. I think you may be some of those things but your not all (as far as i know anyway) so that must make you only half of one :mrgreen: .
Godamnit I'm a Curmudgeon! I enjoyed that ChrisV, thankyou for posting it.
hey I watch TCM to get a fix of B&W now and again. :wink2:
Aaaa, noshin like sha clashics (whoopsh, forgot ma teesh)
Aaaa, nothing like the classics! :hi:
I get the magazine and never read it. :oops:
Long, but worth every syllable.Loved it. :thumbs: Will Rogers still rules and W.C. Fields is a riot(and was true to himself) the ol son of a bitch :laughing:
born 1901 and still get it up :cussing:
Age is for wimps, i get a stiffy every morning and that's what really counts.
I think you both are between the ages of 7-10, and thats if your lucky. I say that cause of how you talk and how funny you think you are. I honestly dont think your making anybody laugh except for maybe each other but your sex lives arent our business. You got no purpose or value here so why come back? If you say your any older then 10 then act your age. Its good to be immature sometimes but your pushing it.
I would say that the three of them came to this forum to turn it to shit or at least make people laugh but they suck at both :screwy: :2cents:
I'd say it was just one person using 3 accounts and pretending to cyber by himself :screwy: What a sad git.
You could very well be right. They all seem to think a like (not at all or stupid) so it wouldnt surprise me if they were the same person, maybe someone whos been here before. And i agree 99integra, they arent funny and not really ruining this place, kind of annoying but thats about it. When will some people learn and grow up though, like geez.
