Hello fellow commenters from around the country. No offense but I joined The Patch for local news, not to hear about the latest crime in Kalamazoo or Boise. Local headlines from around the country is an oxymoron! I am leaving The Patch.

You'd be getting local news if they hadn't fired everybody except the 40 employees who post this stuff.

be on the look out It was a hot Sunday mornin' Middle of July The choir was a singin' 'Bout the sweet by and by Everybody was a swayin' And sweatin' in the heat We all bowed our heads down As the preacher took his seat My sister and my brother stood next to my mother In the quiet at the close of the verse And that's when daddy cut the big one At the Horn Lake Mississippi Missionary Baptist Church My sister rolled her eyes back My brother bit his lip My cousin just behind us Whispered, "Hey, who let it rip?" I stuck my face in my shirtsleeve Stared down at my shoes Lord, you could hear a pin drop As we stood there in the pew Heads were turnin', eyes were burnin' Momma stuck her nose in her purse After daddy cut the big one At the Horn Lake Mississippi Missionary Baptist Church He cut the big one It was a stinker Then he broke the silence With a snicker And us kids started laughin' 'Til I thought we was all gonna burst After daddy cut the big one At the Horn Lake Mississippi Missionary Baptist Church He said, "The devil made me do it" Momma said it was the liverwurst And that's why daddy cut the big one At the Horn Lake Mississippi Missionary Baptist Church

It proves a point never try and build a bomb unless your trained right.
