One too many afternoon yack shows, a bit of hair-tearing, and this was the result.


I am a Victim

of everything

and everyone.

I went to see

Swami Bungus Kapreesh

(that Oprah guru who

stays centered by

sleeping on nails)

he said I was

spiritually destitute

and TOTALLY

dysfunctional.

How kewl is that?

And it's all

Dad's fault for being an abusive jerk,

Mom's fault for being addicted to face-lifts,

my brother's fault for being such a queen,

my sister's fault for being a size 2,

my school's fault for being too strict,

America's fault for being too racist,

TV's fault for being too moronic,

The President’s fault for being a loser,

and your fault because

you sabotage my self-esteem

by thinking I'm

 an idiot.

Is it any wonder

I am so damaged,

I only have eight thousand friends

 on Facebook??

 

LW

And blame it on Rio, the thong's stuck in the crack giving it face value! Dr. Phil has a pair of cure-all tweezers to pluck the sand rim...Parody of today's what is reality TV blame it on Jeopardy, Pity Party the Daily Double...if there was a category for Iolanthe Woulff, I would run the board, I have studied well...

Love,

And here all along I was thinking that I was doing good to have a few friends on FB, and btw, do people still watch daytime tv? Really a cute little write, right?

Cheers and have a happy fourth,
Dan
