    I’ve been noticing for a while that there’s someone on Twitter who seems to copy stuff I post on TOD verbatim, and then tweet them. Imitation is flattery but still…

      hope it is not the stalker who harasses Ms. Chips (I choose not to write his name) using the most egregious misogynistic language

        No it’s not him – someone else who I follow and don’t otherwise really mind actually, but I just noticed they habitually tweet my stuff posted on TOD, verbatim. They may be tweeting others’ stuff too but I’m just not aware.

      Yep, I noticed that;

      been looking at his face and telling my self that here is a teacher whose joy in life (and I assume teaching) and empathy just shine through his eyes;

      he seems to have a good, clean soul

    Evidently the ladies of TOD are doing to naughty mats what Danny does to any object that he encounters ….

    … wonder why …. 🙂

    time to prepare some dinner … BEHAVE Ladies (NOT) 😀 😀 😀 😀

    The young woman behind PBO’s right shoulder in the start of the video, mostly behind him during the video; she is one of the most beautiful human beings I have ever seen! Second row back, behind the lady wearing glasses. My goodness.

      Yardarm this list is the Republican agenda regarding women. Surprised they don’t copy it and put in in their platform.

    I’m not sure how many would remember the “A tramp, a vamp, and a scamp” jokes, but here’s my take. Not funny, since these people do not amuse me at all, but it’ll show you how I did at word association.

    Christie: Prison Camp (we can only hope)

    Perry: Racist Camp (remember his old family ranch)

    Priebus: And A Scamp (self-explanatory; never send a boy to do a man’s job)
