Worth A Thousand Words




A friend sent me this gem. I am not sure who these folks are, but I wish them a prosperous marriage.

The Gruntled Center will close for Christmas now. See you in the New Year!

Don't you think that this seems a little cliche? You might as well talk about the most recent MY Name is Earl episode. I know your sociologist but do you have to use buckteeth to make your point?

I was wondering how you came to the nickname of Beau which is obviously French when you are sucha proponent of the WWE (Welsch Work Ethic). I thought I'd shake things up a bit by starting to be a regular on your blog. I'm kinda radical and represent a non-voting demographic, but I find most of what you report on interesting; a regular 'peter jennings' after my own fathers heart. So if you could explain why Beau (a very french/frogg name) correlates with a random google.com search for your Blog. Why not Wilhelm oder ein andere germanische Surname fuer deine Weiss Anglaisch Saxonisch Protestantisch forum beim normalweise Regeln. Basically, I'm wondering why you favor an obviously French nickname?
P.S. This is in no way an enditement of your ideals or beliefs.

If it seems that you are harassed by a disgruntled fellow such as myself weil dann enschuldigun. Ich believe that you perform a legitamate purpose, not that your seeking emotional reinforcement on a personal levle, but I believe you propose some valid questions and I think your class in college was one of the few ensightful classes that I participated in at Centre College. Your academic traditions provided a substantial reinforcement from the constant societal and social demands that I was exposed too. I hope your youngest son still plays warcraft and that both of your daughters have figured out what they want to do in college.

Drew: I don't make the pictures, I just post 'em. This one is so perfect, I suspect it is staged.

Tangenti: Beau is a nickname grandma came up with. I don't know where she got it. I think it is a little silly myself, but it is too late now.

Just a note to wish you a Merry Christmas and a very gruntled New Year.

It is a heavily Photoshopped picture, actually. This picture was definitely doctored.

Gruntled said...

Do you have a source on that, Anon.?

Gruntled said...

OK, my sister found a way to the source. It is a doctored picture, a contest entry. See Snopes:
