No X in this Y

2016-02-01 01:56:15.6835+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

So Len L ‏@DammujedGuds tweeted:

"I don't have a horse in this race." "I don't have a dog in that fight." I want to make more "I don't have a [animal] in this [sport event]"

to which I responded:

I don't have a lion in this coliseum. I don't have a bear in this dumpster. No raccoon in this trash can...

And this led to Peg ‏@ethnobot:

@danlyke @rivenhomewood I don't have a squirrel, or even a rat, in this wall.

Dave Polaschek ‏@DavePolaschek

.@DammujedGuds @danlyke Don’t have a donkey in this porno. Don’t have a monkey in this poo flinging. Don’t have a cat in this drowning.


.@DammujedGuds @danlyke Don’t have a cock in this fight. Don’t have a bull in this pit. Don’t have a cuckoo in this clock.


.@DammujedGuds @danlyke Don’t have a flea in this circus…

MrCompletely ‏@Mr_Completely:

.@danlyke @DammujedGuds I don't have a piranha in this carcass

J. Eric Smith ‏@justericsmith:

@Mr_Completely @danlyke @DammujedGuds I don't have a tapeworm in this colon.


.@justericsmith @danlyke @DammujedGuds I don't have a dildo in this orgy

Thoughts on the Dead ‏@ThoughtsOnGD

@justericsmith @Mr_Completely @danlyke @DammujedGuds I don't have an oyster in these pants.

MrCompletely ‏@Mr_Completely

.@justericsmith @danlyke @DammujedGuds I don't have a candidate in this election

Hey wait


@justericsmith @danlyke @DammujedGuds I don't have an unstable derivative in this financial catastrophe


.@justericsmith @danlyke @DammujedGuds I don't have a rubidium atom trapped in this Bose-Einstein condensate

And what I thought was the crowning achievement, J. Eric Smith ‏@justericsmith:

@Mr_Completely @danlyke @DammujedGuds I don't have a flute solo in this Tull song.

Dave P again:

@justericsmith @Mr_Completely @danlyke @DammujedGuds Ain't got no hound dog in this pickup truck.

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
