The part of the church where the silliest things happen. Conversations that sound like they belong in the youth room will be moved here.

Whether he fell asleep mid-tweet--and, honestly, who among us hasn't--or he's simply trolling, it's nice to see a bit of levity these days. I'm glad President Trump embraced it.

What do you think the rest of his tweet would have said?

Funny! Are you an npr regular, btw?
As thus we sat in darkness
Each one busy with his prayers,
"We are lost!" the captain shouted,
As he staggered down the stairs.

O love the Lord, all ye His saints: for the Lord preserveth the faithful. Psalm 31:23

Not a regular reader. I catch about five minutes of news from them on the way home from work, but that's about it. I'm mostly a Drudge/The Hill guy.

If there's anybody on CPS who's an NPR regular, it would be TNLP. When he hears Cokie Roberts reporting on the SCOTUs he goes all weak in the knees.

According to this article, it's Arabic for "I will stand up."

Ko fefe: pregnant but in fear of it
The most improper job of any man, even saints, is bossing other men. Not one in a million is fit for it, and least of all those who seek the opportunity.

J.R.R. Tolkien



Wherever we go in the world we find other men speaking the same language...dreaming the same dreams. And one of the big four - brownie, or brookie, cutthroat or rainbow - is the cause of it all.

According to Arabic speaking scholars this is not true.
This from Ali Adeeb Alnaemi, a professor of Arabic at New York University:

“Honestly when I heard that some writers thought Trump was speaking Arabic I said to myself, ‘Wow, they know Arabic more than I do."

My last post on this:
If you use Google translate to translate "I will stand up" from English to Arabic, you get سوف أقف. If you then hit the button to have it pronounced, you get something that could possibly be transliterated as cov fe'fe, although I don't know the sounds of the Arabic language well enough to say that it's a valid Anglicization of the Arabic (plus my speakers kind of suck).
