Post Uncle Garabed?s Notebook (Dec. 3, 2014)

Maxim

Cunning is a poor substitute for sagacity.

La Rochefoucauld

A Toast

To Church: The first time one goes he has water thrown on him, the second time he has rice thrown on him, the third time he has dirt thrown on him.

A Conversation for the Birds

In the local pet shop, the owl keeps saying, To who? To who? And the parrot keeps correcting him with To whom? To whom?

From the Word Lab

Baptes: Priests of Cotytto, the Thracian goddess of lewdness. They received their name from the Greek verbbapto, to wash, because of the so-called ceremonies of purification connected with her rites. Themidnightorgies of the priests were so obscene that they disgusted even the goddess herself.

A Joint Night Out

I crept upstairs, my shoes in hand,

Just as the night took wing.

And saw my wife, four steps above,

Doing the same damned thing.

Anti-TARC Talk

Not only did the Turks slaughter one and a half million of our people in the most barbaric manner, steal our properties, and abduct our children, but, moreover, they destroyed our entire Western Armenian culture, drove our survivors into exile, andpressed us to abandon our identity through assimilation. The Great Powers did nothing to save the civilized Armenians, nor to punish the perpetrators of these great crimes because they were interested only in grabbingMid Eastoil. Now those same powers are trying to convince the remnants of the unfortunate Armenians to parley with the Turks in a civilized manner.

Whats in a Name?

Antaramian: Armenian in derivation, identified as a descriptive term, antaram is defined as unfading.
