Quote Of The Day

Here’s a sentence from a letter (email) I received from Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Antiquity):

I am deeply concerned about the proliferation of nuclear weapons, especially in the Middle East.  I am also alarmed by the possibility of security breeches in the former Soviet Union and the pursuit of nuclear weapons by rogue states and terrorists.


 
Considering her antiquity in every sense of the word, surely this is what the good Senator was thinking of.

    I thought that security breeches prevented adolescents from committing the dire sin of Onan

      jams, one of the grammar sites that discussed “breaches” vs. “breeches” used the example that if a warrior says “Once more into the breach,” s/he does NOT mean “let’s put our hands in our pants again.” 🙂

    And I though security breeches were Mormon underwear. At least she didn’t mention denying cancers screens for poor women with blunder-busts.

      Well, karmanot, these breeches aren’t far from that magic underwear: the painting is of an 18th-century British gentleman, wearing (among other things) his breeches. In fact, it’s the example for “breeches” given in Wikipedia.

      I thought about depicting a baby in diapers, but after this week’s events, I don’t want anyone to misconstrue my meaning.

    Isn’t that spelled ‘britches’ in Texas? I imagine the spelling ‘Depends’ on what she is attempting.
