George Rap Bush?
October 14, 2001 4:48 PM   Subscribe

George Rap Bush? Turn him over. Turn him over. Turn his cohorts over. Turn any hostage they hold over. Destroy all the terrorist camps. There's no need to negotiate. There's no discussion. I told them exactly what they need to do. And there's no need to discuss innocence or guilt. We know he's guilty. Turn him over.

I'd like to hear the recording. His rap really needs some work.

"All they(the Taliban)have got to do", says George Rap Bush "is turn them over(...)as well as destroy his camps and the innocent people being held hostage in Afghanistan "


Before these innocent people are duly destroyed there's just no room for negotiation, right?

Somebody get the guy a Grammar!

P.S.

If Dubya knows what syntax means I'm a Taliban.

destroy all the terrorist camps - actually we're doing a pretty good job of that right now

That's cheating:

"We'd destroy the camps, but you destroyed them all."
"You had your chance. Welcome to Armageddon."

Barney is his dog. He was on the lawns, trying to catch the dog, when the press sprung upon him for an impromptu interview. Thus "Come on Barney" at the end.

They could of killed it.

(the line, not the dog)

Oh, Carol Anne, the Barney Bush page is a treasure!

Neale:...And here I thought he was talking to a reporter named Barney. Okay, you cleared that up. I just listened to it, I didn't watch it.

Peeve alert: "They could of killed it."

The proper words are: They could HAVE killed it. When people say "could've" it is often heard as "could of." Same goes for "would've" (would have) being mis-heard as "would of."

End of peeve. Sorry, but it seems to happen with alarming frequency. No offense meant to Neale.

That's George "H. Rap" Bush to you, pal.

What I want to know is where's Ernie?

I could of ... hey, wait a minute, "could" and "of" don't jell. Except in, for instance: "I could, of a cold October morning, treat myself to a warming pizza".

I could of murdered a pizza right now - no, I could actually of from it!

"Come on Barney" was a coded message to Bush's sleeper operatives working at comfortable, unobtrusive farming jobs in unsuspecting Afghanistan.

If the Taliban have any sense they'll display his still image while an Afghan translator reads his words, partially munged.

"We'd destroy the camps, but you destroyed them all."
"You had your chance. Welcome to Armageddon."

Is there something about the British accent which causes "all" and "Armageddon" to rhyme?

The proper response is to just get over it. Language evolves in precisely this manner. His meaning is clear, and that's all that matters.

End of peeve. :)

daveadams: that human languages are redundant and thus tolerant of error does not imply that error-free writing and speech lack value.

I'm sorry to hijack the thread!
