Not Iambic….Do Not Accept…
These tags I’ll pop, and boast in rhyming verse
that what I wear puts swagger in my gait;
though twenty shillings have I in my purse,
my self-esteem and manhood both inflate
when lofty furs I purchase for a cent.
Thy grandpa’s clothes are worthy salvage, though
they smell a trifle musty. Still, I spent
much less to dress myself from head to toe.
To save or not to save? The question’s moot.
I’ll never give my coin to high-street crooks.
These dusty shelves will yield their hidden loot
to those, like me, more frugal in their looks.
Like ancient coins washed up on distant shores,
I’ll find my treasures in these thrifty stores.
- Macklemore, “Thrift Shoppe”

Trouble will find us tomorrow!!!
I know we were all hating on yahoo earlier but this may be the start of a great relationship
Just walked to the post box at the bottom of my street and some random guy passing by leered at me and said “Nice tits.”
I wasn’t really paying attention and said “Thanks, you too.”
He looked very deeply offended and stormed off in a huff.
I suppose some people just can’t take a “compliment”!
