Best reasons to watch the Olympics. Medals, victory, unparalled althleticism, displays of comradery and sportsmanship?
Speedos and leotards.

I've decided that the Greek male synchronized diving team needs to come live with me.
Those guys had such lovely packages, I thought UPS was delivering my birthday presents early.
Must go to Greece sometime soon.....

Because if we took every worthless check from all of the other entry-level photosynthesizers and apprentice pig sodomites, we'd be up to our eyeballs in checks worth all their weight in used toilet paper.
my dad watches so many movies and shit that everything he says to me sounds like totally dramatized, like as if it were from a movie...for instance, i am spending the night at jessies tonight because the storm and i live in the projects (AKA: cardboard houses)...so when i am leaving, my dad is like, "Son!"
"Yeah..." I say, halting in the doorway. He advances and grabs hold of my shoulders with firm hands, looking straight into my eyes with an austere expression of fatherly compassion, "Dont be a hero, you hear me?"
"...you really think i wo..."
"I know how it is, but if something happens, like the goat disappears, you wait until after the storm to find it."
The rest of the post is really great too; it's all about his dad's crazy political beliefs that are based on action movies.
"Me no want good English-speak! Fmeh!
Besides... after checking out the community, I think my taste for reading has been seriously depressed. I could never possibly hope to hold a candle to the impressive works I've seen listed there, so why bother? I am obviously an unwashed, unread fuckwit.
I'm going to go buy a hairshirt now."
Here, midwinter points out some issues common to all interest groups:
Well, on the Venn diagram of "SciFi/Fantasy Fan behaviors" and "Gay behaviors" there is some overlap - role-playing, costumes, THE RIGHT TO LEAD A GODDAMN PRIVATE LIFE WITHOUT EVERYONE FEELING THE NEED TO WRITE A NEWSPAPER COLUMN ABOUT IT FOR THE LOVE OF JESUS...
And here, rimrunner gets wishful:
Why can't one of the Ten Commandments be, "Thou shalt not make asses of yourselves"?
I wish, too...
"I don't like clowns anyway but clowns with bleeding pasta, well that's just wrong!"
Actually, the whole post is pretty darn funny, but I felt this comment had to be shared. This is my first offering to the altar that is metaquotes, I can only dream it will be found worthy.
There once was a Bear named Trent,
To Ballarat Uni he went.
He got a Live Journal,
And then spent time eternal,
writing stuff that didn't fit with the rest of the limerick about how he likes Martial arts, and Guinness, Fantasy novels, dodgy samurai movies, blowing things up and just generaly causing Havoc...
oh and my hair is unkempt.
"NO, I will not get in an argument about why you think George W. Bush will save the world and how a liberal commie pinko swinedog like me is misinformed because I think you're a bit misguided since all you can give me are circular statements and I'm actually giving you solid facts...er, at least, not again." -- amadruadaboleyn in this post.
The rest of the list is funny, but these deserved to be metaquotesed.
...is now open
for business. :)
Anyway, none of that has anything to do with my little community. The community came about when I did a search for communities for fanfic quotes. Being the fanfic junkie I am I've collected more than a few quotes. When I didn't find any, I made my own. And this seemed the perfect place to go about promoting it. So I give you....
Happy quoting. =D

I think this is further evidence that people simply do not read enough anymore, and in the process learn how words are supposed to look when they are used/spelled correctly. Not only that, but our soundbite-driven culture dumbs down the thinking.
Either that, or homophobia has become so prevalent in Bush's America that recognition of homophones is now considered subversive and out of line with God's plan.
