The Virtue of Patience

A friend recently posted on facebook: "Could somebody please help me learn the virtue of patience."

I very nearly sent him This link to a classic post from the old Enjoy Every Sandwich. But then, I remembered how many people see my facebook and the real name that I use there, so I kept it to myself.

Read it whenever your patience is tried. It will do you good.

Break on through

I normally don't link much to the serious side of Skippy, but This post from July of 05 has some really worthwhile things to say about religion in politics.

Quotable Skippy

"One of the larger truths of the human experience is that television is a very limited medium in which to properly express one's stupidity. That's why Al Franken got out of it. If you're really stupid, you want that stupidity in a physical form, one you can touch and leave out on the coffee table so you can show it off to your friends. You need to write a book. If you're Bill O'Reilly, you need to write three, including one for children while you're facing a sexual harassment lawsuit."

From This classic tribute to then Senator Rick Santorum

Money quote of the day

"I've long lived by the maxim that when life hands you a lemon, you should get a bottle of tequilla and drink yourself silly. On the other hand, I'm a strong believer that even when life doesn't hand you a lemon, you should still drink an entire bottle of tequilla. This is because my life is an unending nightmare and I'd be grateful for a fucking lemon."

From this classic

They're back!!

Okay, the archives are back. All the links you see here will work as they did before. And I highly recommend you peruse them.

Update: some of us have the attention span of a gnat, and some of us are high, so I figured I should fill people in on where to start digging in the archives even though these links are also above and to the right of this post.

Anyone who has heard me in a bar raving about how you don't understand the potential of the written word to inform, charm, and engorge until you've read Skippystalin and then proceeded to whip out your blackberry or iPhone and google this page, should start here. These are the posts that will get you hooked on Skippy if you're not a total retard.

If you are fully human, you will have decided to go to the beginning of the archives and read through to the present at a leisurly pace whenever you run out of current blogs to read. At this point, the thing to do is go here where I've put all the links in order to all of Skippy's archives. I recommend a few posts a day until you get through to the present. Bookmark the page where you leave off, then go back next time.

Where do we go from here?

Update: The old Enjoy Every Sandwich site has been restored to its rightful place on the throne of the intertubes since this was written.

All the legions of readers who have come to depend on this site for up-to-date Skippystalin commentary have been severely disappointed. So much so, that I haven't heard from any of them yet, but it's only a matter of time before all those emails come in.

Skippy went off the air deleting all the archives that all the links on this page point to making this officially the most useless blog on all of the internets. I knew that if I keep at this blogging thing, eventually I would achieve some distinction.

Hopefully, someday Skippy's archives will resurface in some kind of cache somewhere so I can fix all these links, but until then, who knows.

I have been so busy, that I haven't had time to comment on the demise of the greatest weblog ever, it was only today that I found Skippy's new site. Put that in your google readers today!

"In age when American reading scores are at an all time low, I would suggested that Debra Lafave should be named the Patron Saint of Education. If someone who looked like Lafave blew me every time I read every time I read a fucking Dr. Suess book, I'd have written Moby Dick seven times over by now. Instead, you're reading this. So you tell me who the victim of a blowjob-free education is."
