And the planet on which this is appropriate?

A Black T-Shirt BOLDLY proclaiming "F*** You, You F***ING F***" I don't care if it's a quote from Shakespeare, this is just Not Appropriate outside of...well, I'm sure there must be a place it's acceptable. It just escapes me now.

Some years back, I actually saw a variation of this phrase on a t-shirt worn to my stepson's Junior High Choir Concert? What kind of sense does that make? Is it the only shirt you own? You couldn't stroll over to Salvation Army or Goodwill and spend a buck for a better one? You couldn't put a "need" post on freecycle? HELLO?

Not that I'm saying the person doesn't have a right to wear such a thing. Just because I find their choice of free speech Inappropriate doesn't make it unspeakable.

It just makes me want to holler. "LOOKIT YOU, YOU LUGUBRIOUS LOUT!

Frankly, I wouldn't be crazy about that shirt either.

It has something to do with the way Neptune is aligned in these kids' charts. Mark had said something about a 20-year period in which over-the-top behavior would be rampant. Of course, he doesn't remember saying it, but it was about the same time Britney started showing more and more skin.

Oh please ask Mark to tell me when this Neptunal Reign of Terror is over! Please! I beg of you!
