Cue facepalm* and what the holy scrud? … soundtrack courtesy of the Sons of Provo (available at finer Deseret Book outlets everywhere):
*Then again, Dashner attended BYU and currently lives in South Jordan City with his wife and four children. How the heck could he not know the G-rated lexicon of permissible Utah non-profanities? Whatever. His bannination is still shuckin’ bullfit (say that ten times fast).
ROFL. I can’t resist sharing this, from my time at The Lord’s University.
One of my best friends there was a non-Mo, a girl from some heathen enclave in Connecticut. I loved her from the moment she introduced herself to me:
Hi. My name’s Tish. That’s ‘shit’ spelled sideways.
I made it my mission to introduce her to as many people on campus as I possibly could. 🙂
I’m glad somebody appreciated this. Go figure, Chino’s now on a quest to lighten the mood around here. 😉 Thanks for the assist, SLK. 🙂
Hey, I appreciate it! I didn’t happen to have as funny a story as SLK handy. 😉
Wow. Here I thought I was just splashing about in the shallow end of the pool. If I was Being Helpful as well as amusing, it wasn’t intentional. But you’re welcome all the same, Chino. 😉
