Time to needlessly factionalize DU
I'll begin.

I prefer my salad lettuce to be hand-ripped, and you people who like it cut with a knife are just disgusting to me. Disgusting, I say!! :bounce:

2. Okay, you can take your hand-ripped lettuce and shove it!
Now, let's talk radishes. Anyone who does not think they are the devil's work?

Ooops. Did I say nukes?

Anyway, since when do I have to bow to the almighty radish faction of the Democratic Party? We're a big tent, we can support the radish-haters, right? I refuse to march in lockstep with you hand-ripped lettuce, radish-lovin', ultra left pinkos! So there!

So that the upper part rolls towards you when you pull it. The other way around is evil and disgusting!

43. they're NOT born that way
people who have the toilet paper roll UNDER were clearly raised by a strong mother and weak father and a family cat that dominated the family dog. I know there are some therapy groups that can help them with this lifestyle "choice."

I draw the line at allowing innocent children to see toilet paper rolls spinning in the wrong direction. For your own sake, I hope your so-called "booth" has some kind of access filter.

11. As someone whose mother was killed by lettuce,
I find your brazen flaunting to be insensitive and likely quite deliberate. Judging on your past posts - and I just did a quick search and read a bunch of them - I don't doubt that you meant this as a personal attack.

I don't know what it is with your lettuce-lovers showing up here and trying to split DU. Why don't you go over to luttuceloverunderground.com and spout your garbage there.

You know, DU was better before they allowed every tom dick and harry in here, and we didn't have to be constantly barraged with "I love lettuce!" and "Here's how to prepare letuce" and all that BS.

maybe it's time to leave, and find someplace safe. Like DU used to be.

32. I'm just saying that it would be nice if people be a little more sensitive
to other people, especially now in this election cycle when Democrats, especially DU, should be united.

But these lettuce-lovers keep popping up with their propaganda and misleading statement and lies, distracting us from the real issue, which is that people like me shouldn't be exposed to anything that I dislike because it makes me feel bad and unsafe.

47. it was probbaly HER fault
if you mother was experimenting with alternate lettuce lifestyles she probably DESERVED to be hurt. Sorry, but we must pay for the consquences of our actions. She should have stuck with peas and carrots like a good girl and not wandered into the jungle of tossed salads.

48. It wasn't - it's because the lettuce was picked by a DIRTY IMMIGRANT
Mom figured, hey, this is the US only clean people live here, so she didn't see any need to wash the lettuce. besides, with all the good checmicals on it that the government approved, she figured it should be safe.

She failed to think, though, that our government might have very well allowed some unwashed IMMIGRANT into the country to pick that lettuce and steal jobs from decent Christians and destroy our lifestyles.

But otherwise, no, I'm all with you about the taking reponsibility for your lifestyle choices.

I'm just saddened the government failed to protect my mother, just the government fails to protect our children from profanity on the TV, anti-Christian sentiments in public schools, and the glorification of sex as a lifestyle from the media.

Edited on Thu May-13-04 12:29 PM by Rabrrrrrr
Bigot.

DU didn't used to be racist, and Jews were welcomed with open arms because we didn't ask about anyone's faith.

But I guess you prefer a little litmus test before letting someone speak. What's next, banning women?

46. So you say one thing, but yet you completely deny them the right
to their culture, and thus efectively silence them.

DU didn't used to censor people because of their religious beliefs, but it's quite apparent you'd like that to change. Probably a Nader supporter, always coming in, trying to disrupt things and divide the democratic party.

20. Heresy!
Hand-ripping lettuce is what got this salad into the sorry shape it's in today! Don't you realize that when you hand-rip your lettuce, you might just as well be eating a POTATO salad... or no salad at all?!?

Hand-ripping is just one step away from FOOT-ripping, and why would you want to do THAT??? Why do you hate this salad so much? Are you a spy sent in here by the rutabaga lobby, trying to rip our salad to shreds? I'd really like the moderators to investigate you, and see if you don't have some sort of connections to the pickled-beet people, who try to ruin our salads just because they lack integrity.

Years ago, everyone here used to chop their lettuce with a KNIFE, and we all got along. There was much rejoicing, and we danced long into the night. You rippers (frippers?) came in here, and it's never been the same since!

If you rip-heads are going to ruin this salad for everyone, I AM LEAVING, and I'm taking my tasty cherry tomatoes WITH me.

Each food should be eaten separately. Mixing different foods together just makes them harder to digest.

33. To rip or not to rip...that is the question!
I must say that I cut my lettuce with a knife. I add to that lot's and lot's of garlic, so much that I find myself blowing on a forkful before eating! Sometimes I get depressed living alone.
