Sometimes on the way to your dream,

you get lost and find a better one.

I'm reading this book....

titled, "When Will Jesus Bring The Pork Chops".

It isn't a story, it's a collection of thoughts on various things by the author, who I don't recall just now.

Here's a passage from it:-



UNCLE SAM WANTS YOU
Things I wonder about the FBI’s list of the “Ten Most Wanted” criminals: When they catch a guy and he comes off the list, does number eleven automatically move up? And does he see it as a promotion? Does he call his criminal friends and say, “I made it Bruno. I’m finally on the list”?
Does the FBI search harder for number three than they do for number seven? I would. Otherwise why have the numbers at all?
These are the kinds of thoughts that keep me from making any real progress in life.


and here's another:-



THE CONTROL FREAKS
Hello.
We're the ones who control your lives. We make the decisions that affect all of you.
Isn't it interesting to know that those who run your lives would have the nerve to tell you about it in this manner?
Suffer, you fools. We know everything you do, and we know where you go. What do you think the cameras are for?
And the global positioning satellites? And the Social Security numbers?
You belong to us. And it can't be changed.
Sign your petitions, walk your picket lines, bring your lawsuits, cast your votes, and write those stupid letters to whomever you please; you won't change a thing.
Because we control your lives.  And we have plans for you.
Go back to sleep.
 

You're welcome.

  1. That book is rubbish, he's playing with his dick. Read my book: A Peeping Tom's Guide To Melbourne. Simple writing in large letters and well researched by a master, me. There are maps, binocular reviews, and tips on climbing trees. My previous book: How To Look Like A Moll In Chapel Street sold out in three days. Every chick in Melbourne bought it.

  2. Oh my, now there's a couple of passages. Such musings make me realise that the author could use some lessons in writing prowess from Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet star!
    And with that, I'm outta' here :)

  3. Hmmm. That book doesn't strike me as very good bedside reading. Interested excerpts though...

  4. Haha! I'll have to look that book up ... but is it putting you to sleep, or giving you nightmares?!?!

  5. I'm sure 'Control Freaks' is closer to the truth than we'd like it to be.

  6. R.H. "A Peeping Tom's Guide To Melbourne"? I have absolutely no need of such information, so no thank you.

    klahanie; it's meant to be funny. It's the author's musings and random weird thoughts etc.

    Elephant's Child; it came in the mix of 1700 that my brother sent via usb. I'm reading it as "tongue-in-cheek" humour.

    Red Nomad; it's making me laugh, but not at everything in it. some of the things he writes make me cringe a little.

    Tempo; quite possibly, but as long as they're not breathing down my neck I can ignore them.

  7. Beg your pardon, only a fool writes a book interesting to only half the population; a Peeping Tom's Guide is relevant to women too, teaches them to keep their curtains closed.

  8. Well how about a Peeping Tom's Guide To Adelaide. I could research it while staying at your place. Don't worry, I'd be out every night.

  9. I learned to keep my curtains closed a long time ago. Windows and doors closed and locked too. I watch crime shows....I know what can happen.

  10. Control Freaks does sound pretty spot on, actually. I'm a little curious to know what these plans are. ;)

    The first one, I can imagine as a comedy sketch.

  11. CarrieBoo; we'll never know what those plans are. We're on a need-to-know basis and "they" think we don't need to know.
