I had this dream where there was a room full of eyeballers looking at Ms. Kim Cattral in a movie and they were using her site as a shrill zone for no-fun whore-mongering sable-ists.

I looked up sable-ists in the google data share and found that it had two distinct meanings...
old english term means an old warm pelt for late night winter wardrobes....

and new term diction analysis claims it is a new acronym for the governments supersecret anti-porn taxation gambleing sting operation aimed at anti-gay distributuion networks that spy on your average liberal teenagers who don't protect the laps from futures on the sex exchange net glove system.

I hope you alert the g-spots about this before the Decemberists get your panties in a bunch at the Obama pally today....

I'll be ordering up some slice for the grays by looking onto mamas healthcare with Hillary this week.
