    I always wondered if Safire was the guy behind Spiro Agnew's "nattering nabobs of negativity" phrase in speeches when he was Nixon's speechwriter (this is not political, it is a factual question about historical figures).
    What about the "Effete Snobs"???

    First time I learned what "Nolo Contendre" meant.

    Bennett, a man needs a nom de guerre, something that his comrades and subordinates can cling to as they rush off into the abyss to face the enemy.

    When I served on the Russian Front in WWII, I would have been proud to be called "Ned Der Zerstörer." I would have happily accepted the title, "Ned, Exterminatore" during the Second Crusade, or "Ned le Destructeur" when I served with Napoleon. But alas, you are not.

    Great soldiers (and even not-so-great) often have wacky nicknames!

    "Old Blood and Guts" -- Patton

    "The Red Baron" (German, der Rote Baron) — Manfred von Richthofen

    "Lakeitel (German, "lackey") - Wilhelm Keitel, German World War II general staff officer

    "Desperate Frankie" — Louis Franchet d'Espčrey, French general during World War I

    "Grumble" — William E. Jones, Confederate general

    "Smiling Al" -- Kesselring

    ""The Auk" — Claude Auchinleck, British Indian Army Field Marshal

    "Autie" — George Custer

    "Bad Old Man" — Jubal Early, Confederate Army general

    "The Bear" — Norman Schwarzkopf, Jr

    "Howling Mad" — Holland M. Smith, U.S. Marine Corps general

    "Big Al, (The Sailor's Pal)" - Al Konetzni, American Admiral

    "Bomber" — Arthur T. Harris, British Air Chief Marshal during World War II

    "Boots" — Frederick C. Blesse, fighter ace

    Think of your troops! Who would you rather follow into battle, Ned the Destroyer, or Bennett the shrink?

    I may lose the will to fight on.

    If something is too hard to do, then it's not worth doing. You just stick that guitar in the closet next to your short-wave radio, your karate outfit and your unicycle and we'll go inside and watch TV.

    And to think I started all of this with a mere psychoanalytical call-to-arms.

    To continue the Animal House references..."boy, it this GREAT!!"

    Best thread derailment EVER.

    Do you really like birds?

    Do you buy other things with birds on them?

    Are you afraid that a swarm of birds will attack your face and snatch your small dog?


    I had a chick tell me about her ex-boyfriend one day..

    she said .. "He didn't even like birds"


    true story.

    Just washed my car and within 2 minutes a bird took a dump on it. Who trains birds to do that?

    A strange old bird is a pelican;
    His beak holds more than his belly can;
    He can hold in his beak;
    Enough food for a week;
    But I don't see how the he** he can.

    Thank you. Goldtop
