the daily purge 10-24-16


It’s a bag of markers and crayons. They used to be called ‘magic markers’ but someone figured out how they worked and it turned out it wasn’t magic after all, just a bunch of ink inside a tube. These belonged to Our Marta when she was an artíste. Then she got a job and now spends her time buying art instead of producing it.

What else comes in bags? I’m glad you asked. Back in the days when comedy was funny there was a show called Saturday Night Live starring Dan Ackroyd. He once played a character named Irwin Mainway, President of Mainway Toys, maker of Pretty Peggy Ear-Piercing Set, Mr. Skin-Grafter, General Tron’s Secret Police Confession Kit, and Doggie Dentist. He also sold the ” Bag O’ ” line of fun toys for kids of all ages. These were toys sold in plastic bags. These included such products as Bag O’ Glass, Bag O’ Nails, Bag O’ Bugs, and Bag O’ Vipers. Now before you accuse me of making this up, do you remember Jarts? Yeah, I thought so. Case closed.

Well, OK, it was made up. But not the Jarts. What you need to know about jarts I illegally copied and pasted from the internet:

Are JARTS illegal in the US?
They are not exactly breaking the law. It’s illegal to sell or import lawn darts in the United States, but not to play with them. But the hobby skirts the fringes of public approval and draws the ire of a still-active anti-jarts lobby.

Proverbs 18:2-3   Fools have no interest in understanding; they only want to air their own opinions. Doing wrong leads to disgrace, and scandalous behavior brings contempt.
