Today's FFT (Friday Field Trip)

Today we have a couple of fun places to visit. So to hurry it along as the day is more than half way through, here we go:

Last week we had the Church Sign Generator, well, this week is for those who are thinking to the future. This week we have the Tomb Stone Generator. That's right. Create your own epitaph, or create the epitaph of someone who has tweaked your last nerve. You could use the two combined to give them a message from "God" and then show them what could happen if they don't "pay attention"! Whole passels of mindless fun.

The next stop on our FFT tour is the fun and funky, Shakespearian Insult Generator. This is very handy if you want to insult someone with the vilest, most offensive declarations from the Bard's time.
Methink'st thou art a general offence and every man should beat thee, thou spongy dread-bolted clack-dish. You starvelling, you eel-skin, you dried neat's-tongue, you bull's-pizzle, you stock-fish--O for breath to utter what is like thee!-you tailor's-yard, you sheath, you bow-case, you vile standing tuck! Thou roguish idle-headed strumpet!
Pretty good, huh? You may know what you mean to say, but it's a fair bet that the person you are insulting won't have a clue. To insult without really raising someone's ire.

Hope you have a great weekend. I am hoping to go to this:

Emily is under the weather, but if she feels better, I'm going to try and take her tomorrow during the day. She sees motorcycles and says, "Look Mommy, motorcycles! I love motorcycles!". There will be THOUSANDS of bikes out there. Tonight there is a parade from the Expo Center to downtown and in 2003 and 2004, the first bikes negotiated the 10-mile route to Austin's famous dining and entertainment district while the last bikes were still waiting to leave the Expo Center. This monster parade is winessed by the entire city of Austin who line the streets along the entire route to watch ROT Rumble by in Big Texas fashion. I'm ready!
If we go, I'll have to post pictures!

The Shakespearean insult machine is great. I got: "Thou clay-brained guts, thou knotty-pated fool, thou whoreson obscene greasy tallow-catch!"

Stop by my Journal, as I am doing a dinner guest surevy.
