SCHOOL ANSWERING MACHINE
This is the message that the Pacific Palisades High School
California ) staff voted unanimously to record on their school telephone
machine. This is the actual answering machine message for the school.
This came about because they implemented a policy requiring students and parents to be responsible for their children's absences and missing homework. The school and teachers are being sued by parents who want their children's failing grades changed to passing grades - even though those children were absent 15-30 times during the semester and did not complete enough
schoolwork to pass their classes.
The outgoing message:
'Hello! You have reached the automated answering service of your school. In order to assist you in connecting to the right staff member, please
listen to all the options before making a selection:
To lie about why your child is absent - Press 1
To make excuses for why your child did not do his work- Press 2
To complain about what we do - Press 3
To swear at staff members - Press 4
To ask why you didn't get information that was already enclosed in your newsletter and several flyers mailed to you - Press 5
If you want us to raise your child - Press 6
If you want to reach out and touch, slap or hit someone -Press 7
To request another teacher, for the third time this year -Press 8
To complain about bus transportation - Press 9
To complain about school lunches - Press 0
If you realize this is the real world and your child must be accountable
and responsible for his/her own behavior, class work, homework and that
it's not the teachers' fault for your child's lack of effort: Hang up and
have a nice day!
If you want this in Spanish, you must be in the wrong country

EMO KID!!!! HAHA! and a Golf Joke! (G_Beee would like this one)
A man and his wife walked into a dentist's office. The man said
to the dentist, "Doc, I'm in one heck of a hurry! I have two buddies
sitting out in my car waiting for us to go play golf. So forget about
the anesthetic and just pull the tooth and be done with it. We have
a 10:00 AM tee time at the best golf course in town and it's 9:30
already. I don't have time to wait for the anesthetic to work!"
The dentist thought to himself, "my goodness, this is surely a very brave man asking to have his tooth pulled without using anything
to kill the pain."
So the dentist asked him, "Which tooth is it sir?" The man turned to his wife and said, "Open your mouth honey,
and show him."

Ah well, this is outside of 15 posts, but it'll keep you out of being bored.
There's currently a guy halfway across the Pacific Ocean in a rowboat. Yes, just a rowboat, rowing his way across. He's been out there I think a total of ~115 days now, 'bout halfway across.
Japan is about to be hit by a HUGE typhoon. It is predicted to be Cat 4 to 5 by the time it hits...expect to hear about it by the weekend.
TWICE in 2 days I have been supposed to fly, and TWICE I have been grounded. Grrrrrr.
I stink at tournaments.
G'wolf has a new moneysink.
July 11 2007 8:14 PM EDT
lol interesting :) godwolf y are you so bored? :)
This is kinda interesting. I just found a text file of a contest that I started setting up, but never ran...
That's right UC fans, the mighty, might Gauntlets of the Tamaska, passed on through the Royal Family of Poodle City for generations, forged for weeks and weeks by the mighty Clan Soup Ream until they reached (+15), the most powerful UC boosting item currently in the Carnage Blender universe!
Sensei Boopadoo is retiring. After spending much time at the top of the UC standings, and doing more to bring UC the respect that it currently holds than any other minion ever, he has spent the last year aquiescing his position to the next generation of UC masters, both current and up-and-coming. And, as a mixed-breed child of the Poodle Emperor and a Pomeranian Princess, and the Poodle Emperor's only male child, the Royal bloodline tradition ends with him. He will have no royal son to pass the Gauntlets on to, and will not give them to any of his half-sister's sons.
He is offering both the Gauntlets of the Tamaska (+15) and his Robe of the Otsanda (+62) to the next "true master" of CB. How do you prove that your minion is the next true master? An essay contest, of course! :P
Your essay will be a letter of application entitled " Why I am worthy of such a magnificent gift". It must be written as if actually to Sensei Boopadoo, as if your minion were writing it him or herself. Brag about accomplishments, training, adventures, whatever you want, but you must impress Boopadoo enough with your prowess to make him want to pass some very, very valuable gear onto you (your minion).
He doesn't (I don't) want these items just going to someone who is just going to turn around and rent or sell them, so your minion must be an active UC user to qualify, also. "I'm planning on switching to UC" will not be accepted, with one exception:
if you can convince me that you are planning a NCB using a UC minion(s), or have just started an NCB using a UC minion(s), I will send the gear to you when the minion is "big enough" to use it if you submit the winning essay, and the minion's name still matches the applicant's name. :P
1. PG, of course!
2. Don't be mean-spirited!
6. Grammar and spelling are just as important as creativity and content are to the Boopadoo. Keep that in mind.
4. There is no word count limit.
5. If you have more than 1 UC minion, you can enter more than once, but each minion must write his own unique essay.
6. I will require a minimum of 3 different entries to consider this contest to be valid. That means 3 different players entering, not 3 different minions. No one will win the prize "by default".
7. There will be only 1 winner, who will receive both items.
8. Deadline is
One last thought - try to have fun with it! Making the Boops laugh can easily impress him, too.
July 11 2007 10:24 PM EDT
Wow, it is a shame you never ran that one, Barzoo! xD pretty cool!
Wow............. and to think, all I did was throw gobs of money at you to win.........................
Incidentally, OB forged them up one more notch....
Wow three posts in a minute or less
Is this an evanescent ennui? Or proof that the torpid of mind tend to be pococurante?

You don't have to go spamming the forums with complicated words, you know, no one will understand your posts.
"No one" is a manifest overstatement, schnook. :P (as for spam, are you optating "pot" or "kettle"?)
July 12 2007 10:13 AM EDT
I'm not a schnook. It isn't an apparent overstatement and what does "pot" or "kettle" have to do with anything?
Yes I looked up half the sentence just to respond to you.
So my gimcrackery is a veritable godsend for you! You can send your regards to Mem for the lagniappe! :)
July 12 2007 10:35 AM EDT
Honestly, after you decipher that, it pretty much is spam.
"So my useless talk is a true godsend for you. You can send your regards to Mem for the unexpected gift."
Like answering every posted question with "I don't know." or "Not me.", as if answering in the negative is helpful? :P
July 12 2007 10:42 AM EDT
Not that I want to encourage her, but "lagniappe" has got to be right up there with the best words I've ever seen on the forums here.
I also don't want to hijack GW's thread, but given that he's looking for something to bite his boredom or whatever, then I'll give 20k to the first person who makes me laugh with a picture of what a "lagniappe" would look like if it were a "thing" rather than a mere word of beauty.
I'll follow that up with 20k to the first person who gives me a definition of the word "lagniappe" that is both completely wrong but nevertheless plausible.
July 12 2007 10:42 AM EDT
You started it.
And we're back to puerile.
July 12 2007 10:56 AM EDT
Ah the badinage, the verbal bastinado - it's what I love about our forums! But I do feel the need to start quoting Monty Python today....
Oh and I'm too tired to do Mem's contest justice and not PG enough for G Beee's.....what's a monkey to do?;)

Boo on me for typos!
Oh, and not to hijack G_Bee's hijacking, but... I'll double his prize if the funny picture fits the definition "birthday cake for a big monkey"...
