Apostrophes. Short for, “holy shit, here comes an S!”
I hope he enjoys spankings because he’s likely to get one either way.
at least a tongue lashing
According to a biography of Picasso I read he would visit brothels when he was fourteen. I guess in those days they were cheap enough that he didn’t need to sell his mother’s jewelry.
And according to the article the brothel is under investigation for letting the boy and a friend in even though they weren’t the minimum age of eighteen. I can just imagine them getting in and one of them saying, “Dude, they didn’t even card us. We’re totally remembering this place.”
Brothels… just the kind of small businesses Romney wants to help…
Hilariously, it was Germany that tied itself in knots combining a generous welfare state with right-wing tough love when they stopped benefits for unemployed people who turned down a job offer…. even if the offer was from a brothel.
http://www.snopes.com/media/notnews/brothel.asp Not the case, thankfully! (I went looking for any follow ups on the article, which I remember reading way back when, and came across this. Closure!)
Interessant. Good old Snopes, making me seem like an ill-informed dick one dinner anecdote at a time.
“We don’t know what the mother’s motives are for pressing charges,” said Minet. “It’s possible she wants to teach him a lesson or it’s possible she felt she had lost control.”
If he’s old enough to rip off his mom’s jewelry and sell it to buy pussy, he’s old enough for his punk ass to sit in jail. Don’t back down, mom, THIS is the tough love he needs!
If not the one for which he paid.
He’ll be sitting in his cell at Juvie, going [in German], “Dude…. that was… TOTALLY WORTH IT!!!!!!!! YES!!!!!!!!”
I know, what an asinine statement on their part. Are crimes a-okay as long as the victim is a family member?
Well, I predict she’s going to have some kid there, ethically challenged (after all it was her bling,) but intelligent enough to stay out of issue issues (Its a business doing pleasure with you.)
We would probably be laughing less if he sold his mother’s jewelry to buy heroin. Because prostitution is completely different from addiction.
That’s the difference between dog bites man and man bites dog. Kids steal from their mothers every day to buy heroin.
It’s sad when heroin steals mothers from bling.
In Soviet Russia, etc., etc…
