  1. I thought the unmentionables were what were housed in the trousers. Who knew?

  2. Maybe they were unmentionable because tiolet paper did not exist?

  3. If snippet number three is true, I bet if you put a monkey at a Sarah Palin news conference its head would explode…literally.

    • Welcome to Praire P&Ps, ZIRGAR. I’ll get over to your place today, but I’m already guessing we share some ways of thinking. 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by, come back often and stay as long as you like.

      Too bad it didn’t work the opposite way and Sarah’s head would burst.

      We just can’t be that lucky, can we?

      Howdy, Zirgar. Nice blog you got.

  4. Thanks, fnord!

    Wicked: It may happen yet. I hate to see one give up so easily on the idea of her head exploding, but…maybe by doing so you’re just showing the world that you’re really fighting for it! Gosh, that Palin is such an inspiration to us all!
