Why don’t you just move to Austria.

I’m sure nobody has noticed it here on the blog, but some people think I’m a little quirky. Not that anyone has ever come up to me and actually said, “You know what, I think you’re a little quirky,” but I can tell that’s what people are thinking. For example, when I make a perfectly innocent little joke that happens to demonstrate my breadth of experience and my depth of intelligence and my absolutely extraordinary grasp of the English language, some people might laugh, but other people dart little looks at one another that plainly say, “Hey, this guy is a little quirky.”

Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

And then they politely excuse themselves and go elsewhere or they sit there and humor me, not taking me seriously any longer, or they join in the fun themselves.

Because it takes all kinds.

That being the case, I read all sorts of blogs (Protestant, Catholic, Orthodox, None) and I can tell you for a fact that there are people in this world who are quirkier than I ever thought of being, a whole lot quirkier. Believe you me, I couldn’t hold a candle to their quirkiness, especially the ones who are convicted felons.

I’m just kidding. As far as I know, I do not read the blogs of any convicted felons. Please let me know if you are a convicted felon.

Let me get to the point of this post.

I found something called The Julie Andrews Inspired Mark Shea Evilness Diagnostic Generator with which you can generate insults. A guy named James Preece came up with it so that he could direct some insults at a guy named Mark Shea, and then he made it possible for all of us to generate them, five at a time. James Preece and Mark Shea could be cloistered Buddhists moonlighting as streetsweepers for all I know, but if I had to hazard a guess I would guess that they are Irish Catholics, especially since one of them has a blog called Catholic and Enjoying It.

Here are some of the things you can generate with The Julie Andrews Inspired Mark Shea Evilness Diagnostic Generator:

P.S. - My commitment to truth in blogging compels me to admit that parts of this post were written by Oscar Hammerstein II.

Many people confuse mild eccentricity or quirkiness with either genius or madness.
Silly folk they are.

Sir Robert ~ OK I will come up to you and just say it ~ you are quirky ~ and what's more I love it!! How completely insane to come up with a random insult generator ~ but quirky. Could be applied to many things like ~ What would Chuck Norris do in this situation? Some people have far too much free time on their hands ~ I don't mean you ~ I mean Mr InsultGenerator. But I am sure there is a whole lot worse out there on the Internet and know you will uncover it and expose it for us all to enjoy. At least that last insult did not read Australia instead of Austria. We know some idiots get the two confused :-/

Ok, I wasn't absolutely certain after the 'blue' post, but now I'm positive that perhaps you should ask your doctor what affect the shingles virus has upon the mind.... You might get Mrs. RWP to drive you there and maybe hold your hand while the doc gives his diagnosis......
(p.s. whilst you are at home recovering, you might want to check into Shakespearean insults) Be sure to mention to the doc that you've taken up Tuvan Throat Singing, as well.....

Thanks to all three of you -- Adrian, Carol in Cairns, and HilltopnotallthatfarfromMountSt.Helens -- for your unique votes of confidence.

If you haven't been able to access the Julie Andrews Inspired Mark Shea Evilness Diagnostic Generator on your own, I'm working on that little defect in the post.

Otherwise we'd all be perfect.
That too would be quirky

A Lady's Life in BC, I have always been extremely nearsighted, plus there's a log in my own eye that prevents me from seeing the little speck of sawdust in yours. I'm just sayin'...
