herman rosenblat

Defining bullshit down, to even below blagojevich-level
On ABC's "Good Morning America" yesterday, Herman Rosenblat said "It wasn't a lie." "It was my imagination" that has led him, for 13 yrs, including a book and movie deal, to claim that he first met his future missus at a concentration camp when she, on the outside, used to throw applies over the fence to him (and then they re-met by chance on a blind date in New York City). Holocaust researchers showed recently that Rosenblat was full of crap. Nonetheless, he said yesterday, "Even now, I believe it, that she was there and she threw the apple to me. n my imagination, it was true." It was the right thing to do, he said, and he never considered that it was not true. (And neither did Oprah, until recently.) ABC News

Am I the only one who's getting sick of the ridiculous amount of attention given to Oprah's likes & dis-likes? I don't care one iota what book she reads or what her personal trainer has to say. Then again, perhaps I'm just getting old and cranky....

No Skitt...you are not in the least bit alone. The only headline I'd like to see about Oprah would include the words died yesterday.

Skitt & Maxx you'll both be overjoyed to learn that Oprah re-runs are now available on Greek TV. And to make sure that they deliver the full impact they are over dubbed in Greek! BIG HIT!

OMG! Note to self: Cancel cruise to Greek Isles immediately!!!

Expat - They should be overdubbed in Japanese. They would then be just as informative to Greece as they are to America.

If ever there was an incentive to get well, DM, watching Oprah is it!

Seeing Oprah as you fall asleep is probably better than seeing her when you wake up. In your bed. Sleeping peacefully. With a satisfied smile on her face. And your naked. Then realizing your handcuffed. To her. With no key in sight. No hack saw. She wake's up. Calls you "Lover". Says "Since you're awake we're gonna do it again!" Pass out. Repeat from the point when you first woke up.

Remember how I've said in prior posts I need to get out more? Still applies here. :down:

You might not be able to get out if you wake up handcuffed, DownCrisis.

That's the coyote ugly situation, right?

DownCrisis ~ I hope that Oprah fantasy you have going on is not a recurring sort of thing. If so, I can recommend a good therapist.. 😛

so an old guy tells a story, like that's never happened before. the only part that bothers me is that holocaust denier sights use the story to back up their ridiculous position.
downcrisis so you have oprah fantasies, how interesting. 😉

Compared to some of the things that run through this head, that's probably one of the tamer ones.

Maxx, why do you think I need to get out more. My mantra, "Whip me, beat me, make me create more Access databases!"\

Jules, I think that goes beyond Coyote Ugly. I think the best course of action there is hoping for a full blown coronary.

Skitt, I'm not sure. I keep blacking out..

DM, sorry.

Patty, would you happen to be the therapist Skitt had in mind? (oh please, oh please, oh please, oh please!) 😛

come join me on my couch downcrisis and we will explore your fantasies! (and maybe a few of mine) 😊

DownCrisis & Patty ~ Well that just sucks. I come up with the therapist idea and then ya both cut me out of the loop! How is that fair? :shut:
Posted by Skitt in SW USA on 02/20/09 at 11:58 AM
I'm sorry Skitt. It wasn't until later that I found out your gender. I would never cut you out. Pre screening, follow up visits, group counseling, you name it and I'm up for it. We're going to need a big ass couch for this. :lol:
Posted by DownCrisis on 02/20/09 at 12:23 PM
group conseling? oh boy i've never done GROUP counseling before. it sounds like fun though! 😉
Posted by Patty in Ohio, USA on 02/20/09 at 06:15 PM
Cool! I've got a couch that will sleep four comfortably, five if we all squeeze in.

Sorry, did I say sleep. My Freudian slip is showing again. I meant seats five. Let's keep this professional ladies. Suit with a skirt, heels, hair up in a bun, wire frame glasses and a pen to playfully nibble while taking notes.

And that's just what I'll be wearing. I can't wait to see what you two will be wearing. :lol:

Posted by Patty in Ohio, USA on 02/21/09 at 05:05 AM
Yep, no undies! 😜
Posted by DownCrisis on 02/23/09 at 09:17 AM
