is there a pimpfant in your house?

there is a new brand of clothing out there for your BABIES! it's called "pimpfant" wear - yup! check out this link. then go here to check out the pimpfant wear. this guy was on fox news today and frankly, i thought he was quite matter-of-fact in his why as to his choice of a name for his infant wear. hokey at best.

answers.com defines pimp:

pimp (pĭmp)
n.
One who finds customers for a prostitute; a procurer.

intr.v., pimped, pimp·ing, pimps.
To serve as a procurer of prostitutes.

elook.org defines pimp:

[noun] someone who procures customers for whores (in England they call a pimp a ponce)
Synonyms: procurer, panderer, pander, pandar, fancy man, ponce


[verb] arrange for sexual partners for others
Synonyms: pander, procure

having worked in the criminal justice system - i also know that pimp in the prison secures a slight, blond haired, blue eyed, male for guys named "bubba".

which brings me to my points. i'm one who believes clothing makes the person.

if you work in an office, men should wear suits and women should wear dresses and/or nice pantsuits. as i've been out of the job market for awhile and have been tending to land, children and animals - tees, jeans and tennies are my mainwear, however when i go to church it's usually a dress.

a very good friend of mine for over thirty years had five children early in life and one of them was the cutest little blond/blue girl you've ever seen. i'll call her "misty". misty was a tiny thing and her mother would dress her provocatively and was perming and dying her hair by the age of seven. if you'd ask misty what she wanted to be when she grew up, she'd coyly say, "i want to be a twamp!" her mother would laugh and say, "isn't that cute?"

guess what? misty grew up to be a drug addict with three children by two different fathers and as far as i know, is still bobbing and weaving in and out of rehabs. she's been in and out of jail a number of times and no longer has custody of her children - thank God!

her mother has asked me where she could have gone wrong - i've never had the heart to tell her as she and i were estranged for a number of years for other reasons. and now she's angry with me because i told her under no circumstances to send me photos of MY sister in her coffin. she has a severe problem with honesty - giving and receiving.

questions i pose to you, the reader, is:

do your children's clothing say, "this is me!"?

do you have an overweight teenage girl in the house wearing hiphuggers and short shirts with the punchy donut roll around the waistline hanging out for all the world to see? take a photo of her and hang it on the fridge.

do you have a smartarse teenage son in the house with a cockeyed ball cap and pants you could put three of him into, and skateboard shoes that cost more than $140.00? yank his britches down in front of all his friends.

do you have a kid in the house who constantly says, "but, so and so has one and i'll just die if i don't have one tooooooooo!"? tell them to hold their breath just shy of five minutes and see what happens.

is there a kid in your house who constantly reminds you that, "so and so has this new razor flip phone and my phone is sooo outdated!"? take the phone away for awhile and give it back to them on a special occasion like h.s. graduation.

i could go on and on, but believe you get my drift - smells like gucci #3! hey, i can afford it - my kids CAN'T! GUESS WHAT? they cannot afford to dress themselves either! go figure, parents buy their kid's clothing - who has the upper hand?

if you start putting your babies in "pimpfant" wear - you are headed down a path that will not only keep you in the poorhouse, but will ultimately put you in the nuthouse! who buys the clothing for your children? are they independently wealthy? i would ask any parent to be responsible before giving in to every whim of your children.

it has been my conclusion that although i want better for my children than i had - it had NOTHING to do with material objects as i had little to nothing growing up in the way of parenting.

if you're into character building in your kids - nothing works better than a big, fat "NO"! they'll thank you for it and i'll thank you for it when i see your kids running our country with decency and in appearance. some people will say, "looks don't mean anything." i say, "liar - there is no second chance at a first impression!"

Pimpfant wear is vulgar and trashy. Any parent that dresses their kids in that trash doesn't deserve to have kids. Dressing girls in a sexually suggestive manner is sick enough, but glorifying prostitution is beyond the pale.

I saw the Oregon fashion dork on Fox as well. Just because a lot of morons use the word "pimp" as slang for "ostentatious" doesn't make it a cool word to misuse. Just look at the geeks, freaks and scum that use the word that way. Rejects mostly, with some otherwise normal people succumbing to peer pressure and laziness. There's nothing cool about gaudy, ridiculous clothing or the glorification of gutter sluts and their parasitical pimps.

Is there a person under 35 in this country who actually is cool? Most of them are anything but. These dorks are having children now, so it's no surprise that their kids have even worse fashion sense that they do. Look at their adult examples. Take into account pop culture, an overly indulgent educational system and their juvenile poor judgement, and they were cursed from the start. I feel sorry for any cool people in the age group I mentioned. Their peers make them look bad. Guilt by association.

I hate seeing little girls and babies with multiple piercings, makeup, tattoos, etc. This clothing line was designed to appeal to the slum-scum, barrio-beaners and trailer-trash that dress their girls like whores and their sons like punks.

Yes, the way kids dress is a direct reflection of their parents, no matter how their parents dress themselves.

My boys wear clothes that are cute and masculine. If that's a reflection of me, well, I can live with that. I do have a baby face after all. I also have a foot that will be violently inserted into their asses if they ever come home wearing something ridiculous when they get older.

the merry widow said...

Amen, Amen and Amen! No is a very useful and helpful word, I never leave home without it! I don't let my 2 out of the house if they aren't "dressed" as in decent. Even going to the store you don't need to look like you crawled through the rag bag. My daughter is more of a fight than my son, but they do know how to dress nicely. It's a pleasure to see young people who respect themselves enough to dress appropriately.
I remember seeing a little girl of about 6 in church, her mother dressed her more like a teenager! It was disgusting and depressing. Stupidity is rampant in our society, I'm getting very tired of it!

Good morning and G*D bless all!

the merry widow said...

P.S. Nanc- Good write up! tmw

nanc said...

thanks jeff and tmw - i know i'm doing something right when my kids will say, "WHAT IS WITH kids these days?"

i believe in timeless clothing and you cannot go wrong with levi's or wranglers for the boys. our son loves conservative slam tees and our daugter dresses in fashionable jeans and some designer tees that must be at least three inches over the waistline. and she's built like a small brickhouse.

just so you know, she's the one who complains about not having the designer phone! or lack of one!

nanc said...

what i meant to say is she has a phone - it's just not cool enough! and to think i had to hunt a phone booth down at her age and hope i had a dime left to call home.

the merry widow said...

Egads! Do I know what you're saying! My daughter wants a "sliver", told if she did she could just get herselfa job and buy it herself! She also wants me to get a "razor", I'm good! I'm also not cool, oh well, even as a teen I wasn't and I really don't care!
I read your post about your associate pastor, will put him on prayer list at church! I couldn't reply at Jacob's post, my computer doesn't even "see" word verification! Very frustrating as many have great posts I want to comment on!

nanc said...

FYI - EVERYBODY - today is the beamish roast at beak's - it's an all weekend long banquet - bring a sidedish!

Anonymous said...

it's just some cracker perpetrating, my child ain't wearing no pimp clothes playa

beakerkin said...

I could understand if this were a comedy spoof. There are some broken eggs out there who should not have kids

nanc said...

most of the broken eggs out there shouldn't have kids. look at the kids - you see immediately who is running their show and it ain't the parents. no pride, no shame. we're losing the ability to even blush anymore.

and then we wonder why our sons are being molested by teachers and our daughters are being ripped from our lives walking home from school - what could be more alluring to a pedophile than a baby trying to be an adult?

I pray for the sake of this nation, we have a few more parents with as much sense as you.

I have already began my Journey into fatherhood, a few years before my first child is born. Just so I can see this kind of crap before it becomes an issue.
I wish parent were more responsible than this.
Sadly I know they aren't. Along with parents getting high and drunk with these kids, they are dressing them in trash and think it's cute.
My parents would not let me get a GNR t-shirt because it had skulls on a cross on it.
Of course I though they were being unfair, but still I did not throw a fit. They did try to guide me as much as possible.

Clothing could have me ranting for hours and hours. But I won't.
Thank Nanc for getting me all worked up.
Stupid rap music!!!!!! Damn that stupid rap music!!!!!!

nanc said...

that would be C-RAP as in CRAP music jacob and it's not music!

FLORIAN said...

How much lower can one go? Is there nothing sacred anymore is this God-Forsaken world? To dress an innocent child in such garb should constitute a prison sentence. Good grief!

Always On Watch said...

Nanc,
What happened to Iran Watch's blog? I take a few days off from the blogosphere and can't find IW's blog any more. Please email with any information you have.

I want to read what you've posted here, but I've got to dash off to work. I'll be back later.

the merry widow said...

Florian- It shows how far we have fallen in this country! mohammadins have one thing right about America, we are exporting immorality to the world! I know we aren't all tarred with the same brush, but Whorellywood doesn't have any sense of decency. The few decent movies are made inspite of thier ethos. As for c-rap, it's an abomination. Pandering to the lowest common denominator and it's not pretty!

themerrywidow said...

BTW-I wonder if the "boy genius" ever married the mother?

tmw

nanc said...

aow - i.w. was there today - as i was there! i'm going to check right now.

nanc said...

same error message "404" as was at donal's when her blog went missing...

F.B. Jones said...

I have had some problems all week with various blogs. I would say it was a leftist plot problem, but I don't think most liberals are that motivated.

Nanc,
You need to address the issue of the sagging jeans. Maybe an in depth look at how it started, and how it is making Me and the rest of the self respecting people in this country sick. BUY A BELT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Don't get me started on those pants.
Mtv will be next on my rant list of things destroying AMERICA!!!

FLORIAN said...

Hi all. My interview with JB is posted on my blog for all to see! Enjoy! LOL

beakerkin said...

Iran watch is down and AC looks to have health issues

the merry widow said...

Jacob- I was told by a lady I worked with at the children's shelter that when she was working in the jail system, droopy jeans were a sign that the wearer was a b***h and "looking" for some "action". Needless to say every boy in the shelter wore a belt and we checked! Some had been sexually abused and we wanted to avoid thier attracting the wrong kind of attention! I have had a cow or 2 when my daughter wanted my son to be "cool", I explained why it wasn't happening and find another acceptable cool look! Living beachside has it's own challenges, during the summer most girls wander around in bikinis maybe with tiny shorts! I'm surprised there aren't more accidents!

tmw

the merry widow said...

Nanc- Just posted at Beaker's, first post. Can't connect with a.c., pc doesn't even see word verification, want to wish him the best, a speedy recovery and will be praying for him! Thanks!

tmw

the merry widow said...

P.S. Tell him that picture is dreadful! Wicked man, bad A.C.!LOL

tmw

FLORIAN said...

I am so sorry to hear that about AC....gosh! We all need to keep him in our prayers. Please!

Always On Watch said...

I meant to post a comment here earlier, but when I saw the news about Crusader, I had to visit his site. Florian is right--prayers, lots of prayers.

I missed the Fox report on Pimpfant, and I'm glad that I did. Good grief! What's next to undermine this nation's morality?

Slut dressing for mothers, Pimpfant for kids. Next will be the clothing line "Whore of Babylon" for teen girls and "Drug Pusher" for teen boys. Gag!

When I was principal, I actually had to instruct the new female teachers in the art of NOT dressing like a slut. And that was at a Christian school!!! The year: 1996.

Proverbs says "Train up a child in the way he should go..." So what are these Pimpfant parents teaching their children?

About IW's site...I can click on his name in one of his comments to my blog, but when I go to his profile, there is no web site listed. What's going on? Has anybody seen him around making comments at others' blogs? I haven't, but I've been busy nursing my aching back and "funny feeling" left foot.

nanc said...

aow - did you know that in the hebrew text it actually says, "train up a child in THE WAY and he will not stray from it."? wonder why it was changed?

MissingLink said...

I wasn't blessed with any kids and sometimes I think I was lucky.
I takes a lot of patience and dedication to be a good parent.

Pimpwear heh?
How absolutely disgusting.
Why bring kids into this sleaze?

Iran Wtach has been down the whole day.
I Must say I felt like shutting down too when I read AC's post.

nanc said...

ditto for me, linkster. and children can sometimes be trying - that doesn't mean we need to help them along in the process - nip it in the bud.

Mr. Beamish the Instablepundit said...

Perhaps I'm of a different mind, but I think the key to defeating Islam lies within Britney Spears' exposed ass crack.

Elmer's Brother said...

nanc I am sure you know this already Prov. 22:6

my understanding of that scripture is that the translation would be

"train a child according to his bent" or

"as according to what is expected" or

as Matthew Henry put it "according to what he is capable"

I've heard a lot of believers try to use this as some kind of spiritual guarantee but we know from experience this isn't true. It's more a hope.

Elmer's Brother said...

Is not IW and AC one in the same?

John said...

What do you expect?

Remember Clinton's triangulation to the right in his empty promotion of School uniforms?

Of course it was empty. The guy couldn't keep his pants on in the Oval Office.

His "just a b*****b" affair was with a young woman of his daughter's generation, who, when he took office in 1993, was one of "The Children."

Clinton's Surgeon General's (Jocelyn Elders) sage medical prescription to society was: "Let The Children Masturbate."

In the wake of Clintonism, there has been an epidemic of pre-high and even pre-junior high school oral and anal sex (because "that's not sex").

Abercrombie & Finch were peddling soft-child porn to adolescents in their clothing catalogues not too long ago.

Now the wanna-be fashion czar from Oregon decides highly-impressionable infant's are fair game to be sexually proselytized.

The former King of Pop is a pedophile.

Female teachers are seducing their underage students.

Sexual predators--and murderers-- are targeting little girls.

Of course, all of them are the kids who were fortunate enough not to have been aborted.

I'm not blaming liberalism for all of that, or mean to imply that, at it's core, it necessarily devours and destroys children.

After all, liberals know they need fresh blood to keep the cause alive for future generations.

Doesn't a viable "Village" need to be populated by "The Children" (whose names--I really hope--aren't Hansel and Gretel)?

But of course, I'm just an uptight, Puritanical Christo-fascist prude. :)

nanc said...

beamish - i believe that may be one of the reasons islam is more than upset with us.

nanc said...

e.b. - if we make God our ONLY hope - everything and i mean everything else seems to fall into place. i don't have a difficult time believing that anymore.

as for i.w. and a.c. - i haven't been around long enough to know if they were the same people - God be with a.c.

nanc said...

your attitude is not prudish at all john, and i want to thank you for stopping by. can you imagine what the world would be like if we put our needs all on the back burner and tended to the needs of others? everybody would be doing it! EVERYBODY! NOBODY would go uncared for!

as for our children - there are few mistakes we can make with them that do not do them harm. be in charge - that's my attitude. they do appreciate it.

Elmer's Brother said...

nanc -

yes God is our only hope. I just meant that I have seen some parents crushed when their kids rebelled and they claimed that this verse was some kind of guarantee, but this can be a mistranslation is all I am saying.

nanc said...

i agree e.b. - it is THE WAY with which you train that can make or break. i prefer a spirited child and would never beat mine down. in order to teach the Way, we must live it. it is difficult to do 24/7. our children are forgiving, thank the Lord. we should never blame God for our failures. He left a great manual for all of us.

Bensilly said...

hi nanc-
of course you`re right.
true story: Had a daughter(tracy),blue eyes,blonde,9yrs old that looked too damn good when mom dolled her up, to go outside. I would`nt allow Tracy to go outside with big hair,makeup etc. Mom said I was crazy. We got a divorce.
Wonder if folk are willing to go to those lenghts?

nanc said...

ben - you may have asked the wrong person - i would have stayed and fought it out until the bitter end and i have my vaaaayyyys...

first - no harsh words!

second - give it to the Boss!

third - if you buy the clothes and accessories - express the importance of taste and don't buy garbage clothing!

fourth - never forget to show pleasure at their good decisions and praise them at EVERY opportunity. they love it! don't you?

Kelly said...

Nanc,

The name says it all. It reflects the additude of the parents. What do they want for their kids? They might as well be playing with dolls. Ya, they could dress them up however they want. But a kid is a human being.

So, they start dressing them like that at a young age when it might appear to be "cute", but where do they draw the line. Would they allow their teenager to wear "Pimp" across their chest? If so, they would be contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Neglect! I say, Neglect!

nanc said...

welcome kelly - we teach others how to treat us. consequently that goes for our children also. the message we send them gets sent directly back to us - rebellion? perhaps.

i don't know everything there is to being a child or being a parent for that matter, but i do know from my own upbringing, swore at an early age to NEVER be like my parents - so far, so good.

we go one way or the other. my prayers are that my children go the way of their parents. guess we won't really know until all is said and done, as e.b. so much as pointed out.

thanks for coming by kelly - and be sure to come back again. we also have some great links - and i'm not talking sausage!

the merry widow said...

bensittin-I agree with Nanc, for my child's sake I would have held on like gorilla glue! But unfortunately, some people are so blind and they have turned off thier minds. The results are catastrophic, guess who pays the price? The rest of society! That should give the responsible types some say in the ethics of raising children! Tyrannical and draconian, maybe we should liscense childrearing. Usually I like to stay out of other peoples business, but when the disasterous results spill over into my and my childrens lives and we pay the cost it becomes my business! Wonder if we can sue parents for gross neglegence and recover some of the costs. It might cause some people to rethink, or think in the first place! Still wonder if that idiot married the mother of his son?

tmw

the merry widow said...

bensittin- I wasn't picking on you, I just get disgusted with stupidity. I would guess that you did fight for your daughters future, and I am sorry you didn't get custody. It must hurt still, I am sorry!

tmw

nanc said...

and ben - before i forget - i didn't ALWAYS feel like this - there was a time in my life i believed relationships were disposable. i gave and had my share of heartaches. it wasn't until i put God first that stability came into my realm. i wish i'd discovered this not so secret secret sooner.

tmw - you'd best not be pickin' at my ben! i'll have to put you on restriction! jacob and i are on restriction at fern's. it's just terrible i tell you - terrible!

the merry widow said...

My mama used to put me on restriction, not fun! How long you guys off? You're right about putting G*D first, put things in thier proper perspective. Gotta go!

F.B. Jones said...

My blog is flubbed up. It was fine and now it is not letting me on it. I keep getting an error message. I may have to start a new blog if I can't fix it.

nanc said...

just leave it along for awhile, jacob and see what happens.

nanc said...

not "along" but "alone" - spellcheck police here.

nanc said...

jacob - i got there just fine so the problem must be solved.

MissingLink said...

Perhaps I'm of a different mind, but I think the key to defeating Islam lies within Britney Spears' exposed ass crack.

Oh, but our Britney is now into birth giving mode.
I just hope her family values are strong and firm.
I just hope her kids won't be into this different kinf of crack.

Elmer's Brother said...

Nanc - I think you're great and I hope I didn't come across as anything other than trying to be informative. If it wasn't for God and my wife stuff like pimpfants would be ruining them. Thank the Lord for a Prov. 31 wife.

nanc said...

linkster - let's hope she's not going the way of madonna!

e.b. - i applaud your wife - if she's striving to be a proverbs 31 wife - SHE'S ALL THAT! sometimes the trying is in the proof...or was that the proof is in the trying...???

nanc said...

and thank you, e.b. - now stop!

drummaster2001 said...

where i live, materialism is life. while roaming around one day i heard a girl refer to her jacket as a north face. i was livid. a jacket is a jacket. this is why i can't wait to get to college and be with normal people. most of us will be dirt poor thanks to increasing tuition rates and property taxes.

being in the age bracket [or around there] i will talk about myself briefly.

i describe myself as normal. i will admit i am materialistic, but when i think about it, it really only comes down to certain music equipment. i also choose to be different. in the winter, i wear a flannel jacket [unheard of over here]. currently i am growing a beard [for playoff reasons] which is pissing off a lot of people, except one.

nanc said...

you're mighty drummaster - i have great respect for you. beards and mustaches are handsome...that is if you shave your head baby butt bald...

materialism is not all it's cracked up to be. what you serve is what owns you. we all need to be very careful of that. i'll elaborate more later. now, duty calls - my family is getting hungry!

the merry widow said...

Just let my daughter's boyfriend out the door, he was here all afternoon. Nice boy, very gentlemanly, a pleasure to talk to! Exhausting though. They were busy planning thier wedding, he was picking out wedding dresses for her, ouch! At least it was a proper change from pimpfants! He wants me to live across the street from them, he said he'd buy the house. I'm not ready for this!

tmw

nanc said...

tmw - isn't she only 15? tell him to GTF out until she's 30 - serious - our daughter is not allowed to start dating until then and only after she's married! you need a goon in the house - i don't want to hear anymore of these stories of 15 year olds planning weddings! you'd best be kidding with me! i don't think i can eat now...

drummaster2001 said...

nanc:

usually i get a #2 buzz, but there will be no cutting of any hair until its over.

nanc said...

until what's over, drummaster? i am lost as to what's in season right now as far as sports goes - well unless it's golf and then that's all year!

Mad Zionist said...

Baby Z and Baby Z 2B will never be seen in that Pimp bullshit. Unbelievable! "My Mommy is a MILF"!!!!???

Wow, is our society is crumbling.

F.B. Jones said...

I am sorry to say MZ it is. We can only pray our children will change the world. This is the main reason I want children. To change this world back into something to be proud of.
I am proud of this country but not of a lot of it's people.

Elmer's Brother said...

this is why i can't wait to get to college and be with normal people.

Guess again drummaster the only normal people in college are the ones who finished and moved on despite their education.

Warren said...

Clothing has never been an issue for me. My wife is the same way.

When I was in school there was a dress code. I doubt that I would of had more than one shirt with buttons if it wasn't for the dress code.

Jeans and a pocket T, Levi jacket, field jacket or Navy P coat when it was cold. Barefoot or tennis shoes, boots in the winter. Flannel shirts, lots of flannel shirts! :^)

I didn't have any sisters so I don't know how that would have worked out. (With three rough-neck brothers, I suspect it would have been hell on earth for any prospective boyfriend.)

This sexualization of children worries me! Our society is deteriorating more each year.

I really don't understand the penchant that people have for following stupid fads and fashion. As TMW said; No, is a powerful word,

It has power when we say, "No", to the morally indefensible and those who "be" of this world or when we correct our children.

the merry widow said...

Nanc- Yes, my baby is 15 1/2, but the "dates" involve going to youth group with the young man in question. Or to the beach with her brother, to the mall or hanging out with the families. It is really strange, but it is more a courtship situation with lots of family time! I have read about courtship being a more G*Dly model, so I have more comfort with what's going on. Very little private time. They spend lots of time online looking at houses and cars, his mother is a "Wentworth" and his parents adore her. It's really quite funny.
Good morning and a blessed, beautiful day to all!

Rightminded said...

Good God Almighty, it's the skirts second post, and it's about clothes.

Next is shoes, and accessorizing according to the latest fashions.

Then hair and skin care.

Then bibelots.

I will never leave the hood again!

Rightminded said...

Hey Skillet!

Tell the young man in question. "That's my daughter, I have a .45 and a shovel and know how to use them both, "quickly." And I do not think you're freaking parents would miss you."

Now have a good time, and do not be late.

the merry widow said...

Good morning r.m.! He already knows! And yes his mother would miss him, but if he tried anything with my daughter his mom would rearrange his whole body! She loves her like her own! It's hilarious to see my baby treated like thier own. With 2 mothers, a father, and a big brother...

tmw

nanc said...

i knew that, madze!

"pimpfant" says it all in the crumbling society department. what next? i venture to guess.

nanc said...

ditto, e.b.

nanc said...

it's about fitting in with the next thing, warren. that's why timeless is best. i know you, like me are not of the world so fashion is not a big issue.

of course i'm not saying every woman shouldn't have 25 pair of black shoes...i love shoes...

i believe simplicity is best with adults. babies, however, have no choice in how their parents dress them and some parents show no sense whatsoever.

about the most radical i got with my kids clothing was "baby bum equipment" because of the simple colors, durability and quality. they both wore these clothes for two to three years and they're still like brand new in their treasure chests. i liked adult "bum" clothing also. now, i would rethink that decision.

i have dress clothing AND shoes that i've been wearing occasionally for 25 years. and i get most of my casual wear at tag sales and secondhand stores. my family thinks i'm nuts. ten years ago i'd never even thought of wearing somebody else's clothing!

nanc said...

happy mother's day to you tmw!

ALL people should wait until closer to 30 for marriage! that's it - you are on restriction!

nanc said...

and now, to my r.m. - when i was thinking on a subject of how to get you out of the 'hood - two things came to mind; one: baby fashion; and two: fairies.

it appears i was right! see, that didn't hurt as much as you thought.

actually, i really wanted you to meet warren as you two have so much in common. good taste in women and pride in artillery. the two go hand in hand as you already know.

and now, to figure out how to get you back out of the 'hood...

nanc said...

and a good and right morning to you all!

nanc said...

i've been wanting to address aow post as she said, "When I was principal, I actually had to instruct the new female teachers in the art of NOT dressing like a slut. And that was at a Christian school!!! The year: 1996."

it's just this side of hell that we have to remind adults how to dress. i should think uniforms would be in order in that scenario for the teachers as well as the kids. not a very wholesome example for our children.

Happy Mother's day Nanc!

Happy Mother's Day to all you mommies out there!

Nanc, I dropped by Hank's "tribute". Yep, it a howler. Looks like a 3 year olds attempt to "john brown" Donal and the Beak. I asked him if he was going to cry... LOL

nanc said...

well i hope he doesn't take it as an invitation to come here!

nanc said...

warren - our new addition wanted to go outside and we weren't paying attention to her, so she did her number on the floor (#1) and my son said, "we need to come up with some bambi pampers." and my husband replied, "yeah, and we'll call them BAMPERS!"

the merry widow said...

Went over to hank's place, what a hoot, left a comment, just repeated yours Nanc! Ben and I got married at 44-him, 33 1/2-me! So we were old enough to have a pretty good idea of what we were doing!
Love consignment shops myself. Scrounging off friends works too! And since we have a whole new wardrobe waitting for us, what is available here is pretty lame!
Hopefully r.m. will visit more often.

tmw

nanc said...

well, if warren would do an article on guns and studs, i'm sure r.m. will become a regular! i find so much joy in r.m.'s escapades - he's a laugh riot, even when he's being serious. as i was going through mbc's archives - r.m.'s posts just got better and better.

Warren said...

Nanc, I can do that, except, when you're a real stud you don't have to advertise!

:^)

nanc said...

maybe i was talkin' 2x4's!

Warren said...

Maybe I was too! LOL

Esther said...

Great freakin' post, Warren!!!! You pretty much summed up why I have no intention of having kids, lol. It's insane out there and I don't want to be responsible for bringing up a little terror. My cats are hard enough. ;)

Warren said...

Esther, I've took on a partner you haven't met, (Nanc).

It was her post.

It is a terrific post!
:^)

F.B. Jones said...

It is great no matter who posted it. Thanks again!

nanc said...

thanks esther - cats need covering up too! start with their heads - just fooling...

where's the seal?

nanc said...

thank you, warren - i've run into esther at beamish' site a time or two.

Elmer's Brother said...

nanc - OT bloghi tried a fix on the word verification on my site so let me know if it's still difficult. thanks

nanc said...

seems 2 b working fine now e.b. - you may be very sorry you fixed it......

Always On Watch said...

Nanc,
About the need for teachers to have a dress code...

My last year working in the traditional classroom was 1996-1997. And I was truly surprised that I had to speak to a teacher as to how to dress because teachers, no matter where they work, should know better than to slut-dress.

But I've heard that how to dress professionally is now part of teacher-training and in-service meetings (for teachers already in the system). What seems to me to be common sense now needs special instruction? I attribute this slide to the moral relativism which has pervaded our society and to the influence of the entertainment industry. Pimpfant is another manifestation of the same.

Certainly when I was in school, we all knew what was acceptable wear and what was not.

Warren,
Yes, the sexualization of children is being marketed, and for younger and younger ages.

We've had to establish a dress code for our homeschool groups, and that code had to be extended to the upper-elementary students, who were showing up to a church in slut-dress, and with the approval of their mothers. Reality check needed for those mothers!

nanc said...

not so surprising aow - i've had to ask young ladies at church to "please pull your shirt down below your pantline because you've got skin showing." i fail to add, "and it looks ugly!" oh, i'm thinking it...

MissingLink said...

Let's hope drummaster you'll have sane teachers in your collage.

Try to avoid crapsters like Prof. Julio César Pino.

nanc said...

linkster - i have a feeling that drummaster doesn't stand a chance in a leftist world with beak's and warren's influence! correct me if i'm wrong drummaster - i have a feeling they'd be on the spot if they thought somebody was taking advantage of his - ahem...innocence!

the merry widow said...

I was at Signal94's blog(ex-leo in up state NY) He posted on a couple arrested for the rape of thier 1 day old daughter! I'm sorry but that is flat out demonic! This is what we are slidding into! No natural affection, even for our own children! I bet the pedophiles love the sexualization of our children! Don't have to visit those illegal child porn sites! Steam coming out of ears!
No wonder we're under judgement!
Sorry, but this sort of thing is so sick. You're lucky living on a mountain, sometimes I get very ticked off by my fellow humans and thier idiotic naivity!

tmw

nanc said...

makes one wonder how it was in the days of noah, or in sodom and gomorrah. could it have really been worse then? perhaps God will have to apologize to those inhabitants.

let me at these people and i'll take a chance on hell. there is no good reason for harming our innocent. none, zero, zip. i was going to have a good morning.

F.B. Jones said...

That one day old case is 3 county over from me. I linked it up on my site. I am so sick of these people.
I would gladly go to prison just to rid the world of a few of these animals.

nanc said...

okay, warren - what's going on with the great big giant reader's digest for nearly blind people print? i had to take my glasses OFF!

Warren said...

Do you think its too much?

nanc said...

no, i think it's great! just had to jab you.

the merry widow said...

Warren-I like it too! Jacob- yeah, I'd do a number on them also! And in a hospital!!!! You wonder if anybody is home in someplaces! I won't ask what the parents were thinking, I don't even want to get that close to the cesspool! What I would do to that "mother" is not fit to print, it would be painful though, very painful!

tmw
I chewed out sig94 for posting that on Mothers Day!

conservativekat said...

The thing is, people in my school do wear in fact slutty clothes. It's what they've been waring since the younger age so they're used to be seen in low tops and mid-drifts, and skirts that have there butt practically showing. Its the same waywith guys were pants so low that their boxers show. No matter what I say, that's just todays fashion statement. And I HATE IT! Have some dignity people!

Although, I don't dress formally every day ...

nanc said...

all that from a 14 year old! hip-hip-hoorah for sensible kids - thanks for stopping by conkat - you are a force and i'm going to tell my kids about your blog. keep up the fine work and you'll have your own radio or t.v. program - sky's the limit!

cube said...

Just because you can reproduce doesn't mean you should be a parent.

Children's & young teen clothing on the whole is on a trashy bent. You have to shop carefully and learn to say NO if your child wants to wear what many other kids are wearing.

the merry widow said...

Hoorah for those who have a sense of dignity and modesty! I have seen too many girls who are either anorexic or overweight wearing the same sizes! It's pathetic! You wonder why the parents have abdicated thier responsibilities. The '60s have been the bane of America, it just keeps getting worse! The people who have a sense of self worth are refreshing.

tmw

Warren said...

Modesty is, and will always be, a virtue. Whether its in our our physical beings or personalities.

There are far too many exibitionists and braggarts in the world.

The person that bears their butt to the world, dares you to look. The person that begins every sentence with, "I", is just as bad in a different way. They both want your attention and mistake attention for admiration.

I find both unseemly if not repulsive.

the merry widow said...

Sorry Warren!

tmw

Warren said...

TMW, why should you be sorry?

Did I miss something?

nanc said...

well, of course subtlety is a virtue and that's why i chose the quiet avatar.

o.t. - tonight's awards night at school for all the nerds who were on the honor roll at any time or at all this year so i must attend as there are two nerds at this house.

beakerkin said...

This is a classic spoof . I nearly fell off my chair wait till John Brown sees this one.

nanc said...

beak - i don't think warren's kidding - it's for real, man - get a grip! wonder what title brownie'll put longrange under now?

the merry widow said...

I use I to start some off my sentences, Warren. So, I was apologising for being self centered!
I love the troll super vac!

tmw

Warren said...

TMW, when we form community, when we're trading information about ourselves in relation to a conversation; that's not bragging.

When people tell you how rich they are, how high their IQ is and how the world revolves around them, its an entirely different thing.

Warren said...

Beak, I'm going to add some little trolls with Xs throught them as counters.

Now, let's see who else wants to add it to the sidebar.
;^)

the merry widow said...

"I" was pulling your toes Warren! Gotcha! I can be a terrible tease(pesky little sister, remember?) I really do enjoy the community, and we seem to be attracting(mostly) the right kind of neighbors. Every neighborhood has one or two that are a little...yeah. Kind of like the Fla. man who has been to jail twice for not getting rid of his protest "art" from his yard. He did it to irritate the neighbors he didn't like! Attracted rats and code enforcement, he got it cleaned up, then when he thought the heat was off, he started collecting junk again to make more "art"! Judge threw him in jail!

tmw

MissingLink said...

TMW, I think my leg came off in your hand!

LOL

Warren said...

Missinglink,
The intelligence part is kind of self-evident, isn't it!
:^)

the merry widow said...

Warren-If you want it back, I'll send it COD!
Nanc- Wanted to ask about Bruce, how is he doing? I have people praying for him at church, one ladies husband just got released from therapy to go back to work after breaking his. With medicine and G*D in the mix wonderful things can happen!
G*D bless!

Rightminded said...

Where in the hell are the recipes?

I thought for sure, by now, there would be at least one for the preparation of "Buzzard Breathe Opossum."

Warren said...

Rightminded,
Right now we are working on a little something we call "troll tartar".

Run it through a shop vac, season to taste!

nanc said...

bruce is doing wonderfully, tmw - thanks for asking.

r.m. - we are going to have to start a cookbook for roadkill - warren has the best recipes! good to see you out of the 'hood - baby steps...

drummaster2001 said...

nanc:

i was referring to the NHL playoffs. hockey is a true mans game. unfortunately it ended for my team on sunday night so now all i got are my sideburns. when i shaved it off, i felt like a part of me died.

missinglink:

where does Prof. Julio César Pino teach?

warren:

"Flannel shirts, lots of flannel shirts"

rock on!!

nanc:

"drummaster doesn't stand a chance in a leftist world with beak's and warren's influence! correct me if i'm wrong drummaster - i have a feeling they'd be on the spot if they thought somebody was taking advantage of his - ahem...innocence!"

you lost me somewhere.

nanc said...

pino is a leftist muslim professor that linkster was warning you about who teaches at kent state - and my comment was to imply that your friends would not stand quietly by if they thought you were under the influence of a person of this sort. that's all.

are you planning to go professional in the hockey department? it is a brutal man's game - i like golf.

Warren said...

Nanc, I don't think we have to worry. DM has a class 3 BS filter.

Jeff Bargholz said...

Hey! Why is there a little trashcan at the bottom of my first comment? Are you guys trying to tell me something?

129 comments. Are you guys going for the record?

Rightminded said...

Ahhhhh!

Baby steps, a la "What about Bob!"

My wife and I played 9 holes of golf the other day. One hole there is a bunker about 210 yards from the green. About 200 yards from the tee.

My wife has improved, she is in the bunker in, Oh, 10 or 11. I do not know, because by now I'm in a coma.

She is right at the end of the bunker and has a 3 wood in her hand.--Now get ready nanc!

I said, "Don't let that bunker give you any of it's lip!"

Muahahahaha!--get it nanc?--The bunker has a lip and she doesn't have enough loft to get out of it! Pua ha ha ha ha!

She's still out there some where!

Hey, it's funnier then mulla-arcy!--I think?

the merry widow said...

Hey, r.m.! Glad to see you're still breathing! If this is what you can write while still in a coma... WAKE UP! I've been asking for a cookbook for awhile! Maybe if I held my breathe and turned blue? Nah- they'd all laugh at me! Warren has some good tips on cooking monkeys. I wonder if they will include photos?
Good morning and G*D bless all!

tmw

nanc said...

j.b. that is so you may erase your OWN comment if you want.

r.m. - hehehehe - bwaaahhhhh - arghhhhhh - (throw a snort in here for good measure)!

tmw - i'm sure the cookbook is on it's way! otherwise just start taking the recipes down as they start poppin' up all over the place and hijack them into your own book, then we'll sue you for the proceeds, retire and you can be our cook.

Rightminded said...

A woman without a cookbook?

I hope you have at the very least receipes on little index cards or something.

In Italy or in a Italian-American neighborhood you would be an outcast.

Get thee to a library, even I have cookbooks.

How do you and the other ladies know what to put in that big black pot when the moon is full?

nanc said...

ohhooohhhhh...weeeee know....

Warren said...

RM,
Nanc's comment, kinda storta, sounded like a threat!

the merry widow said...

r.m.-Got mucho plenty cookbooks! Just none on roadkill, Ben only hit skunks! As I didn't have a method of removing the smell, I didn't attempt to try! That's why I am eagerly awaitting this one, after all there will be several collaborators, the compatition should be fierce. Nanc should have the salad section though, Warren can have a monkey and other exotics section and Mr. Beamish probably will specialize in barbeque. Beaker, what is your specialty?

tmw

Rightminded said...

Speaking of kid crap!

Is it just me, or does anyone else feel we need to keep an eye on this limey "Wiggles."

They look like child molesters to me!

nanc said...

they are pretty scary, r.m. thank God i only had to worry about barney the purple dinosaur when mine were younger. i have a problem with grown men dressing and acting that way.

Freedomnow said...

The worst violation of our children comes from Teletubbies. They are the most vile and sinister thing to ever happen to children.

Those creatures are hopelessly addicted to LSD. They are such perma-fries that they cant even talk, they just mumble useless nonsense.

Our children need better role models. Hippy 60s teletubby burnouts just dont cut it...

nanc said...

of course, you're absotively right, fern. i'm quite sure they're hooked up with code pink or some other shady organization...


WARREN - where's my avatar!!!

the merry widow said...

Above the troll abortion contraption! Yeah, some of those British and assorted derivations childrens shows are "skewed" is the best word I can come up with. Where are Capt. Kangaroo and Bullwinkle and Rocky, or The Jetsons or Yogi Bear or anything?

warren:

how many classes of bs filters are there? is 3 good?

Warren said...

DM said,
"how many classes of bs filters are there? is 3 good?"

Four, class 1 wards off mental pea shooters, class two holds its own against used car salesmen, politicians and lawyers, class 3 is for Marxist ideologs and jihadists, class four stops everything but its like the codpiece on ballistic armor, (it might not get through but you'll wish you were dead anyway!)

i'm appalled that a mother could dress her child like that and later hand it over to jihad! heartbreaking, linkster.

Freedomnow said...

Nanc I look forward to hearing more about Code Pink's connection to acid burnouts at Teletubby.

I should have known about the connection by the resemblance.

Freedomnow said...

In the link you gave with the baby bibs did you notice the bigoted reference to Sunnah?

Why they hate the Shia I have no idea. The succession to the Caliph is bunk when there hasnt been one in over a hundred years.

nanc said...

now don't go starting any rumors, fern - i said they COULD be affiliated with code pink!

and the muslim baby wear is one of linkster's links. quite interesting i do believe.

MissingLink said...

Nanc,
I am into Muslim-wear these days.
Slowly preparing myself to go undercover (which is bloody easy with burqas around).
Aww but these cute little muzzie outfits...awwww.

Freedomnow

Why they hate the Shia I have no idea.

They have to have something to hate in case they run out of Kaffirs.

Freedomnow said...

Nanc its too late I already reported Code Pink's affiliation with the Teletubbys and the police have told me that there is already an ongoing investigation.

They will give me a call if they need my assistance. Please make yourself available to testify against these criminals...

nanc said...

fern - i will never admit that i've seen the teletubbies! never, you hear me?

Elmer's Brother said...

I heard that purple dinosaur is really a covert commie operative bent on destroying us by getting our kids to sing that liberal song "I love you ....you love me...arrrggghhh just hearing that song makes me want to get sent to the gulag

nanc said...

just admitting that, you must NOW go to the gulag!

themerrywidow said...

Me too, me too, aw Nanc come on me too, me too!!!!!!!!!!!

nanc said...

off to the gulag with you too! now go!

Elmer's Brother said...

I can pass the buck...my rugrats were watching it and *sniff* please just take me away

nanc said...

ohhh - soooo you watch the rugrats toooooo? i'm taking you away - now, where to keep you...hmmmmm...i have just the place...

the merry widow said...

you know it doesn't matter where you were...I got lost at the the local university and wandered into the PBS studio..now the guard makes me call him Vicky

it's okay, e.b. - they're black licorice bars (my favorite) and you can eat yourself out of there before anybody catches you - and in time for the next episode of rugrats!

nanc said...

what say we take this up over two hundred before monday?

Elmer's Brother said...

THe rugrats was in reference to the three children I have not the show and your licorice bars taste something like COLD HARD STEEL!

Besides I will be lucky to get out of this post alive considering the troll abortion post....(he said while sitting in corner in the fetal position trying to pull his foot out of his mouth)

i wonder if it will become a custom troll when warren's done with it?

Warren said...

Its ok,

It slipped past me in the comment notifications. Two words "Oh Baby!" and the link was in the exclamination point.

We might have to install a spaminator and talley sheet with little cans of spam and red Xs.

What does a spaminator look like?

Elmer's Brother said...

Perhaps this would work.

nanc said...

no, this is how you take care of it - sissies!

nanc said...

nevermind - my thought must've taken care of it...i'm on a very big project right now and will let you know more later. it's bigger than all of us. i'm about to burst with delight!

nanc said...

and don't try prying it out of me because my lips are sealed...

nanc said...

NO - i'm not pregnant!

nanc said...

i do have to say i love men in kilts - we went to the scottish festival at lyon college a couple of years ago and there were well over 2,000 men in skirts. and rugged. rrrrrrrr - nothing says macho like a 6'6", 240# guy with a bagpipe - who's going to mess with him?

the merry widow said...

During WWII the Germans called the Scottish troops the dames from hell because all the pipers went into battle in full regalia! My maiden name isn't Scots Highlander for nothing! Yes Nanc, You're a true Celt, all them hairy legs! Only a Celt can get away with wearing a skirt!

tmw

Elmer's Brother said...

I love the Scots.

EB to TMW -
Do you actually like haggis?

TMW: No, I think it's repellent in every way. In fact, I think most Scottish cuisine is based on a dare.

EB: and do the Scots enjoy sports?

TMW:You know, Scotland has its own martial arts. It's mostly just head butting and then kicking people when they're on the ground.

EB: I'm smitten. I'm in deep smit

the merry widow said...

EB- I agree, haggis is "dare" food, along the lines of teenage boys in MickeyD's daring each other to put straws up thier noses to impress the girls at the next table! That or scaring away the tax collectors! Now a good roast of beef, with scratch Yorkshire pudding(I know, but even those d**n Southerns(English) have a good idea), scratch gravy and mashed potatos. A nice green salad with fan rolls and a robust burgundy. And to top it off, 7 deadly sins chocolate cake, just to fill in the empty nooks!

tmw

Elmer's Brother said...

tmw

That mcd's reference hilarious!

you just want the chocolate cuz you're in a huff, snit or quandry?

the merry widow said...

EB- None of the above, I've been on a "cleanse", so no wheat, potatos, sugar, wine etc. I'M JUST CRAVING IT!!!!!!!!!!

tmw
P.S. Glad you liked the mcd's! I always thought some of the things early teen boys do are to funny for words!

the merry widow said...

As for Scottish sports, well after the d**n Southerns(English) left us for naught after conquering us, we were so poor all we had to play with was tree trunks, really big rocks and each other! Shin kicking does require sheepskin on the shins, that's cause the boots are so darn thick, curling all you needed was a smooth oval stone and your mother's worn out broom! Simple pleasures for a simpler time!

tmw

Elmer's Brother said...

yea but throwing telephone poles and eating sheep guts?

nanc said...

do you two travel in pairs?

the merry widow said...

EB- Poverty!
Nanc- Look who's talking!
EB- When Scotland went to mostly absentee landowners, they didn't know thier clans folk so they threw them off of clan lands to make way for sheep! This threw already marginal people over the edge to abject poverty. If they got anything it was usually the leftovers from butchering which included offal. When your starving, sheep innards will provide some protein and minerals! When you look at what goes into a haggis you understand where they were financially. When your national dish is a sheep stomach stuffed with chopped lungs and oatmeal and not much else, well that sounds poor to me. Why do you think so many Scots fled to America, the English and thier Scottish allies really beat the natives down into the mud, they have never recovered! The Scots in America have done better, but what the English did is the attempted blotting out of national identity and they have nearly succeeded!

tmw

nanc said...

although my son's never had any, he'll growl and say, "where's my HAGGIS?" it was a family joke at one time - that and his kilts and bagpipes.

my husband said he'd wear a kilt if wrangler started making them out of denim, then and only then! i guess that would be hillbilly tartan?

Elmer's Brother said...

nanc ONE!

I got to travel to Scotland while I was in the Navy, only spent two weeks there. Some of the nicest people I have met in all my travels, they were wonderful to us. Now if I could just understand what they say?
