A public arena for creative whining about weekly topics.

Why won't somebody pay us to whine?

Now wouldn't that be great? I think a MacArthur Foundation genius grant would be an acceptable recompense for all the whining we do, here and in other quarters. But, really whining sounds so unpleasant—we would have had to call it Finge Whinging.

Or perhaps a Whine Tasting party would be a good perk-up.

Tell me, sir, how is your cabernet?
It's a caber-not, the worst yet today.

Tell me, miss, how's your pinot noir?
Just a common black red, ce soir.

And ma'am, the tang of your pouilly fusse?
Pbbt-really fussy, that's what I say.

And, cuz, how's the taste of your merlot?
Bleah! What else you got? Er, go.

No Whiners Here

Okay, S & K scamper off on vacation, leaving me to whine on my own. Pffft; obviously I have been unable to step up to the plate.

So, this week's whine, in their honor, is "People Who Leave On Vacation", and ... whine on....

Inclusive schlumisive

Being inclusive and tolerant is such a bother.

We Have A Whiner!

We have a winner for this week's whine on careers. BakaChichi says:
The dictionary defines career as: move headlong at high speed. So why is mine taking so damn long?
Yeah, what he said. Now for this week's whine.

Whine for March 5 - 12: Careers

Dang, I hate the fact that there are careers. Don't you?

Let the whines begin....


We Have A Whiner!

Of the whines on last week's topic (Mardi Gras), we've picked our whiner:
Why don't they televise the Mardi Gras parade? I mean, after all. The networks do get to see the Rose Parade, and the Thanksgiving Day parade. Why not Mardi Gras? Tsk.
Yeah, what she said. Sure, there was a lot of coverage of Mardi Gras in general, and frequent shots of revelers on and off floats, but why not pick a parade and cover it from start to finish? Hm?

Whine for February 26 through March 4: Mardi Gras!

Whine if you're not there, or if you're there and it's not what it should be, or if your hometown should celebrate Mardi Gras, or if other towns shouldn't celebrate. Or find your own Fine Whine about Mardi Gras.

C'mon, mista, throw us some whines!


We Have A Whiner!

Winning whine on last week's topic -- the weather:
Anonymous (but weeee know who it is) said...

Three reasons that weather sucks:
(1) too even-handed, what's with this falling on the just and the unjust thing; give me a break, I mean literally give me a break.
(2) too undemocratic, should something this important get to happen with no polical oversight?
(3) too cold, my body runs just shy of 100F weather is almost always far enough below that I've got work to maintain my internal temp; bah.

1. No last names (unless you refer to a public person)
2. No threats

The most creative whine of the week will be archived for general amusement. All other whines will be discarded.

No whining about this.

Whine on!
