Having recently been lambasted by several readers (now ex-readers I assume) for being a misogynist, homophobic, racist asshole based on a satirical post where I claimed to be a proud heterosexual man, I am taking a short sabbatical to work on changing the tenor of my posts.
I have decided to stay away from any material or subject which might upset or bother any reader. I certainly do not want anyone to again threaten to “Go all western on me” or ask “Do you feel lucky…punk?” This daily posting thing is not worth risking violence on my person.
I wish to speak of only nice things.
And now, the new and improved Cranky Old man presents
SUNSHINE AND LOLLYPOPS
I love sunshine…of course if you live in drought plagued area maybe sunshine is not such a good thing, so I love sunshine, but I also like rain and I do not want to insinuate that we should always and only have sunshine.
I love lollypops, they taste so good and remind me of my youth…of course I am concerned with over consumption of sugar and the negative effect sugar can have on our health, so I do not advocate over consumption of lollypops.
I like rainbows…naturally the heavy rain that sometimes precedes a rainbow can be destructive, and I am not in favor of destruction, also please do not infer that my affection for rainbows in any way represents a position positive or negative towards the gay rights issue.
I like butterflies; unless of course others don't, then I sort of like butterflies but I perfectly understand that some people may not like butterflies.
I hope you enjoy the new Cranky Old Man, come back for future posts where I will enlighten everyone on the cuteness of kittens, puppies, and ducklings. Of course if you happen be allergic to kittens, puppies or ducklings please do not read that post, I do not wish to upset anyone.
