    "The majority of finnish women seem at first glance not very appealing. Many of them have round grayish color faces, snub noses, a rare straight hair, short hairstyle, medium height, even excessive fullness and lack of waist. Their feet are full and short. They have large bones, wide back and knees, big palms of hands and soles of the feet. Such structure of the body better retains heat. Finnish women rarely use cosmetics. They does not wear shoes on heels. Sneakers and moccasins are favorite shoes in this country."

    This is obviously the handiwork of a demented lunatic, but I think it's a very blunt way of describing its relationship to his or her body, I find it as remarkable in its simplicity as it is in its simplicity.

    The link is SFW, it's just an offensive bit of stereotyping of the Finns, but not anything more.

    — not too sure: could be an original, but I doubt it.

    Jayne: "You don't pay me to talk pretty. Just because Kaylee gets lubed up over some big-city dandy...."

    "What Paul Masson said nearly a century ago is still true today: 'We will sell no wine before its time.'"

    Paul Masson's wines taste so good because they're made with such care.

    All right, I have to stop.

    Well, it took Beethoven f..........

    No.

    I don't know how Orson made it through those.

    I have a lot of good stuff from Beckett's Murphy, but it's in the car and I don't want to go fetch it.

    Some things can't be rushed: good m.....no, I can't even type it without laughing.


    "Paul Masson's Emerald Dry. A delicious white wine."
