    Of course she would have. She always has some uncut salami in the fridge.

    His mother asked him if he wanted a sandwich and he TOLD his mother to go out and buy him one.....and she did. He was an entitled idiot. She was a idiot.

    You're just angry that your mom's a bitch.

    You're just angry that your mom is a fan of uncut salami.

    Enabling is a thing that exists, but I'll give any mom a pass on feeding her children. Maternal instinct.

    i was at my cousin's house, and he said this to my aunt who was pretty much ready at the go. Moments later sandwiches came flying out of the kitchen, it was amazing.

    I can agree with this. My mother is awful, and if I asked she'd probably tell me to get the hell out of here ... but if I suggest that spending the day out in the sun was taxing, I'll hear a "well hold on, I have some hot dogs in the fridge, and I also made a quiche earlier today..."

    Really only works if you pronounce it as "sammich."

    I agree as far as that goes. A high school/college buddy had a mom who used to pop into our late-night poker games and ask cheerfully, "anyone want waffles"? (Thanks, Mrs. W!)
    But there's a difference in my book, between feeding your kid and running out to do his bidding.

    True. Especially if you went to Princeton. I'll bet you a dollar he greets some of his friends by saying, "''sup, n*******?"

    Actually, it would be "hoagie."


    I'd bet on "sup, bud" for this clown.

    Watching Fox5 News. They had their camera outside shooting people going to work/school.

    3 schoolgirls walking directly towards the camera. Girl in the middle gives the cameraman 2 middle fingers! Very funny as you see the camera move rapidly up/down/left/right before they cut back to the studio.

    hmmm, this is not consistent with what in 2014 became the standard shout-out for live news interruptions.

    Gray Davis says hello. Seriously, I have no idea what the process for recall is in NY, if there is one, but I lived in CA when Davis was recalled and I still can't believe that happened.

    The Davis recall was a farce.

    He was run out in large part because of the energy crisis that was later revealed to be collusion on the part of the energy companies and the vehicle license fee increases. Schwarzenegger, after his first wave of right-leaning proposals crashed and burned, ended up governing just about like Davis was. It was just typical head-in-the-sand childishness from California voters.

    Oh, right, I don't disagree, I was just surprised/impressed that a state like California could get its collective shit together enough to remove a sitting governor from office. My expectation was that apathy would win the day.
