for expressive, though sometimes depressive, youth. I don't know if Goth spun out of Emo, or the other way around. It's also supposed to be a genre of rock.

61. I suspect it's not this...

From Urban Dictionary:

1. Emo

Genre of softcore punk music that integrates unenthusiastic melodramatic 17 year olds who dont smile, high pitched overwrought lyrics and inaudible guitar rifts with tight wool sweaters, tighter jeans, itchy scarfs (even in the summer), ripped chucks with favorite bands signature, black square rimmed glasses, and ebony greasy unwashed hair that is required to cover at least 3/5 ths of the face at an angle.

"The Demise of the Siberian Traintracks of Our Rusty Forgotten Unblemished Love" sounds like it would make a great emo band name.

Here's my list, and I picked the last one because it's so absurd!

New Ager
Democrat
Environmentalist
Government Recipient (tax refund)
Fornicator
Liberal
High Fullutenter

I guess ya gotta hand to the Phelps for consistency - even their own kids don't escape. (Except for that one who did escape and is outspoken against them....heyyyyyyyyy waitaminnit.....maybe THAT's the PK to which they refer?)

45. Somewhere between 16 and 19.


It's hard to know if I qualify as a "sophisticated swine". I've been called a swine, and I consider myself rather sophisticated - but I do not fancy myself an expert on such delicate theological questions.
That's probably why I'm so surpised to learn that the devil was responsible for racists (I thought Jesus, even as a middle eastern Jew himself, is generally conceived of as being ok with racism). And EMO's. Also, I have no idea what Jesus' beef with "sports nut's" is.

Thinking about this a little more, I'm also totally clueless as to what P.K's are - and "high fullutent" sounds like something that I'm afraid to even google.

Feminist - I am a male who believes in equal rights for both men and women, so I guess this label applies to me.
Democrat - obviously
Environmentalist - people who care about the sustainability of our habitat obviously worship the devil...
Abortionist - if they mean someone who supports the right of women to make their own choices about their own body, then yes
Government recipients - no way would I be able to attend a university without it
Fornicator - well I've had intercourse outside of wedlock (with my girlfriend)
Gambler - I've bought lottery tickets
Agnostic - this is actually pretty much the opposite of devil-worshipper
Liar - no one always tells the truth
Freeloader - I have no job (I am a student) and I rely on financial aid and assistance from parents
Liberal - Oh what a devil-worshipper that makes me...
Sports nut - I do love sports

69. That isn't a Fred Phelps banner.

I have seen most of his banners, this isn't one of them. This is the work of those crazy preacher "people" that travel to various events (Mardi Gras, Southern Decadence, the Superbowl, pride parades, etc.) and are usually made up knuckle-dragging inbreeds, most of whom can't put together a coherent sentence, which is why the banner is such a mess.
