We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
jephnol ... Which "f**king piece of s**t" are we talking about here? I got so lost in all the obscenities that I failed to grasp which piece of Sony-manufactured equipment was being complained about. We got a new Sony High-Def television last fall, which I still don't understand completely. But I figured that it was the fact that commercial broadcasting stations hadn't switched over to high-def in February the way they were supposed to. that seems to cause some TV stations to come through poorly, with regular burps in the sound broadcasting and freezing in the video broadcasting.
Can I blame this on the Obama administration? That would feel good right now.
In 28 years of marriage I have heard my beloved use the F word about 10 times (usually in reference to daughters' boyfriends). HOWEVER, recently with the addition of the new high def TV which arrived for Christmas 2007 he has become prone to kneeling on the carpet and putting his face down into the carpet and pounding his fists. We keep the Sony piece of S---t under the tv screen--so everything is pretty close to the floor. The irrationality of the entire system puts my beloved the rest of the way down!
No lawsuit, probably. We have worked with PR folk who are damage control specialists, and they usually advise a company to lay low. A suit would bring much more attention to the parody. Besides, truth is a defense, and there is enough evidence right here in these comments to exculpate The Onion!
