Saturday Stuff

A couple for you today, just because.

Pretty picky, I’d say, but then so am I, I suppose

For a Wife…
Great good nature, and a prudent generosity,
A lively look, a proper spirit, and a cheerful disposition
A good person, but not perfectly beautiful.
Of a moderate height.
With regard to complexion, not quite fair, but a little brown.
Young by all means, though there are exceptions.
A decent share of common sense, just tinctured with a little seasonable repartee, and a small modicum of wit; some learning, enough to make leisure hours agreeable, but not to interrupt domestic duties.
Well, but not critically, skilled in her own tongue.
No deficiency in spelling or pointing, and a good legible hand.
A proper knowledge of accounts and arithmetic, but no skill in vulgar fractions.
A more than tolerable good voice, and a little ear for music; and a capability for singing a canzonet, or a song, in company, but no peculiar and intimate acquaintance with minims, crotchets, quavers, &c.

via Qualifications for A Georgian Wife or Husband, do read it all.

Then perhaps a little Lutheran Satire.

Makes sense to me.

    From video “Teach the faith by making fun of stuff.”
    Seems a little Lutheran Satire has rubbed off on NEO.
    From yesterday’s…Why We Hate You: Guest Post by ISIL you commented:
    “Mostly they hate us because we make fun of them, I think. Well, that’s life.”
    Like i.e. the First Annual Muhammad Art Exhibit and Cartoon Contest in Garland, TX. 🙂

      Fr. Robert I don’t know much about Cleese. I went and read a bit on him. Seems that he may be an English gent version of Phillis Diller? Someone being the butt of his jokes according to what I read, has his own Fang. 🙂 Article says he retains an extraordinary ability to amuse himself. More power to him this day and time.
      Oh well, as I said I know little about him.

        • We also had Monty Python and the Flying Circus, early to mid 70’s, may have started in 1969? Memory not so certain, and I was in Nam in 68.

        • I also saw just yesterday on TCM, “Time Bandits” (1981), with Cleese, again very funny with the “little people”!
