Chip: "Obviously, I favor this, but it remains unclear to me how this prohibition is to be enforced. I mean, these people can't afford fines, so that threat is unlikely to be effective. I'd propose chasing them across the river into North Larryville and just let them have the run out of that area, since no civilized person ever ventures over there anyway."
The LJ-World's article contains this passage:
" 'We had a really, really difficult summer with panhandling,' said Cromwell, who estimated there were as many as 30 different panhandlers at one time on Massachusetts Street during parts of the summer.
Richard: "I think he's getting these excessive numbers mixed up with the Larryville Busker Festival. Those people had permits, Cromwell!"
Here's the LJ-World's picture to illustrate the problem:
Richard: "Oh, my friend Brian and I talked to this dude over the summer. He played us a tune on his keyboard that sounded like a horror film soundtrack and we gave him a buck because he told us he needed to go to Seattle. One method of getting rid of the panhandlers might be for everyone to just give them a buck or two and let them head off to wherever it is they are trying to go."
As far as the boys are concerned, no genre of music understands the mind of the average American male more than country music, and Tim McGraw's new song, "It's a Business Doing Pleasure With You," offers one of the most insightful looks at male/female relationships that we've seen in some time. Let's take a look:
"You got me walkin' past the fellas
Holdin' drinks with pink umbrellas
on some island that I can't even spell
Then we slide over to Gucci
Right before we go for sushi...
Your gonna break my bank before too long
I'm taking out a loan
But when you turn your kind of lovin' on
Honey I just can't say no, no no no no no no"
Chip: "Beneath its seemingly lighthearted, formulaic 'the-things-one-does-for-love' kind of commentary is a more serious exploration of how today's women seem intent on pushing otherwise 'manly' men into a role that, aside from the heterosexual fucking, reflects behaviors more commonly associated with homosexuality, such as drinking fruity drinks, shopping, and eating sushi. The repetition in the final line of the chorus might seem comical at first glance but it soon becomes apparent that the 'no' is, in fact, a serious cry for help."
Richard: "I'll do a lot of things for pussy but I won't eat sushi."
