The Fred Graph Suggests I Should Be Able To Get A Credit Card

Do you think it is possible that I am having bad luck? Perhaps I should ask Sanford Wilk. He is the person responsible for those free credit report advertisements on television. Perhaps I should also ask Ruth Mamaril why there are so few creative commercials on television now. It’s a fricken number. It seems there is an amazing sheaf of bullshit being doled out right now. None for me, thanks. I will take my Seven Eleven Credit Card from Visa and it will be good. By the power of India!

It the above paragraph not clearly stated? Do not pass it to anyone wearing a feather bonnet and face paint who doesn’t speak Roman. They don’t know that horseshoes are good luck to carry, because if you need to change one, you go to a blacksmith with the right sized shoe or your horse walk funny. Indian horses have no iron shoes, nor do Arabians, says red face. That’s because you never go into a city, fool. Now get the fuck out of Torrance we don’t shit in the street. I’m glad the arks of the world who forsook their children below have all been overturned. Bhaal (the bull) mostly keeps his feet on the ground.

Further conversation with some celestial Navajos: “If all you wanted was a credit card, you should have been reincarnated. No, uh uh, you would have to talk to Disney about that…”

    Still trying to do SEO, Anthony Tony Pryor? Using my name for SEO gets me excited. It reminds me of the fact that you get lost in NY subways. After all, Anthony (Tony) Pryor often got lost without GPS.

    I am extremely impressed with your writing skills and
    also with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself?
    Anyway keep up the excellent quality writing, it is rare to see a
    nice blog like this one today.

    You can expect to spend a few hours exploring all the buildings
    and attractions within the castle walls and you are also only
    a short walk away from a host of other tourist attractions within the city.
    In the early 1300s Randolph, earl of Moray, had 50 men executed at Eilean Donan and
    ordered their heads to be spiked on the castle walls.
    Once you do, ghosts or no ghosts, I guarantee you will sleep like a baby tonight.
