Republicans- The Fat Kid On The Block

PostBy: Devil505 On: Wed Oct 29, 2008 7:24 am

We all remember that kid, don't we? ........He always:

1. Had The most expensive, cleanest (new) baseball glove & brand new sneakers,.
2. Was the last kid to get picked for a team.
3. Tried to cheat (& always was caught)
4. complained that the sun was in his eyes, the rules weren't fair, the field wasn't regulation...etc
5. Was the worst player on either team (& had a runny nose)
6. Cried when he struck out. (complaining he wasn't ready)
7. Bragged that his Dad made more money than yours.
8. Was driven to the playground.....by his Mother.
9. Would always end up leaving the game (in a huff) saying "I'm taking my bat & going home!"



&............Would always LOSE!


(well......He grew up &.............became a Republican!) :box: :devil:

I think we all remember a few kids that fit that description. The ones I grew up with had no reason to feel strongly about political issues (taxes, healthcare, etc) since their parents gave everything to them anyway. They didn't grow up to become Republicans, they grew up to be unregistered voters that probably couldn't name the current presidential candidates.

These are the kids that you see in the mall dressed totally in black. with safety pins in their nose, four different color spiked hair, anarchy or something nasty tattoed on their arm. and pants hanging down, smoking in front of the entrance. Are these the kids you are talking about?

You got it. The worst part is that half of them get dropped off at the mall by their parents, in the very attire you just described.

The sad thing is that those kids are still at the mall in the same clothes, unless they have graduated the unemployment line.

Awww come on... you guys are sounding like a bunch of old men now.... oh wait... :P They grow up and grow out of it. the big thing when I was in H.S. was wearing "Devil worship" Rock band shirts. Slayer,etc. Pretty radical back then and comparable to the kids all in black now. Those guys turned out quite well. ;)
