Pity the fool who makes use of such an ugly play on words. I doubt you’re ignorant as to who Guevara really was, and that makes you all the more accountable and therefore, more guilty. And the play on words involving the sac of skin in a man’s lower body area is not funny at all. Pity the fool who makes such a play on words.

I must castigate any and every soul who evidences such hatred and vitriol when they speak of Scruton. Scruton may have confused the daylights out of you, but I’d pick him over you in music criticism even if I hadn’t read your critical essays on music or aesthetics.

And to “Cliche Guevara”, what in God’s name do you mean by your ignorant play on words (involving a man’s lower body area) and your question about quotation marks?

Ugh.

This is true, though it doesn’t prevent the mocking of the away supporters’ accents when, say, Bristol Rovers are the visitors to Oxford.

Dusty’s hair is quite reminiscent of Brooke c. 1994.

Comment on The United States (According to Country Music Lyrics) by Hi http://virtualstoa.net/2008/02/27/the-united-states-according-to-country-music-lyrics/comment-page-1/#comment-1652884 Sun, 22 Dec 2013 19:45:45 +0000 http://virtualstoa.net/2008/02/27/the-united-states-according-to-country-music-lyrics/#comment-1652884 “I’ve been everywhere” by Johnny cash mentions all of the Midwest states. Honestly some of these states need more credit. And Mexico is here because people mention it in songs like “beer in MEXICO” be kenny chesney. And just because some states are considered in the north doesn’t mean they r not country. I’ve been to a state in the north and it was more country than states in the south
