"They"

Who are "they"? They are "Them." I'm talking about "them." Yes, them -- they who know what's best for us. They who know what's best for us. Strangers -- the fickle ones. Those strangers who run our lives, who say this is not healthy and then change their minds and then say it is. "They" run our lives. Just for the record, "they" don't run my life. Oh... right you are, LL!

"They as in, you know what "they" say about...what have you. So they say.

Just who are "they?" And how do "they" know? Who told "them?" ... Us?

Inquiring lambs want to know. "They" do!

"They", are a whole lot of people who think they know everything and can tell us what is good for us and how we should live our lives...but they change their minds all of the time. So they, these so called experts get it wrong also. I don't know them personally, they pop up in magazines, medical journals, on the news. That is a good question Lamby but I don't know where they come from, they just exist I guess, I ignore their advice most of the time.
xoxoxo ♡

Little Lamb said...

Hi Dianne! I don't listen to them at all. I'm not going to listen to strangers who don't even know me. "They" don't know what's best for me or anybody else.

Little Lamb said...

Thank you, /t. Now go find out so we can teach them a thing or two.

puerileuwaite said...

No Lamby, Who's on first. So Who could not be They.

Little Lamb said...

Where do "they" fit into this?

puerileuwaite said...

I am glad you asked. They ...

1) hold you up by requesting a price check for every item in your basket at the dollar store

2) ask for their popcorn refill after cutting a large hole in the bottom of the empty container

3) run an Arby's restaurant that tells its driver-thru customers they are out of beef

4) take pictures of birds preying on garbage cans, rather than chasing them away

5) make sure you have to buy more hot dogs and buns than one could possibly want to eat in order to attain a 1:1 ratio of dogs to buns

(I could go on, but they demand I stop)

puerileuwaite said...

6) make you spell drive-thru incorrectly

Little Lamb said...

That's a different group of "they" unless "they" also make crucial decisions for us too! Or are there different groups of "they?"

puerileuwaite said...

That's what they tell me.

Little Lamb said...

See how "they" are?

puerileuwaite said...

Well I wish they would change.

Little Lamb said...

Maybe they will, so they can confuse us. You know how they are!

/t. said...

they who?

/t.

Little Lamb said...

That's what you were supposed to find out.

puerileuwaite said...

I sure do know how they are. And I wish they would stop.

Little Lamb said...

Do you know what I think? I think there are different groups of they just so they can confuse us!

puerileuwaite said...

I see your point. There are also different groups of them. One was a group of giant ants. Another was a rock group from the 1960's featuring Van Morrison. Maybe it was the same group. Now I am confused.

Little Lamb said...

O h pug! What am I to think? different groups of they and them? I have reason to believe there are different groups! of their, also. I also very confused

puerileuwaite said...

Well, their you go.

Little Lamb said...

Or there they go.

puerileuwaite said...

As long as it is an approved rest room facility, I suppose it okay for them to go.

Little Lamb said...

Different groups all to confuse us!

puerileuwaite said...

Now I need to know about us. Is "us" them to others?

Little Lamb said...

We could be "them" to others, but not like those other thems that don't know what they're talking about. We know what we're talking about and they don't.

/t. said...

i saw the movie

  them

<3

Little Lamb said...

The link didn't work.

/t. said...

oops

  try this

/t.

Little Lamb said...

Uhoh! They've been here quite sometime.

BlueShell said...

"They" are outthere...
...highly gifted ...

BlueShell

Little Lamb said...

Thank you for visiting. You could be right.

boneman said...

"they" sounds like a lot of them...

Which reminds me (uh-oh...) about group names.
You know. The funny ones.
A Pride of Lions.
A Gaggle of Geese.
A Murder of Crows.
A Rack of Lamb...
oops...
Flock of Sheep, I mean.

d=^))

Preity Angel... said...

Just stopped by to say hello to you..

Little Lamb said...

Boney, yeah right! :-)

Pretty Angel, Hi there! Your nrecipe blog looks yummy.

boneman said...

My girlfriend called me and said, "Nobody's home, so come on over..."

So...I went over.



Nobody was home.

Little Lamb said...

Hmmm.

/t. said...

hey, they
waddta say?

also, boneman's
girlfriend came over...

× × ×

/t.

Little Lamb said...

How do you know?

/t. said...

LL,,

she was tall and thin
&
insisted i call her bonewoman

seemed to be pretty solid clues to me

and speaking of skeletons, this blog could stand a little fresh fleshing out with a new post, eh?

× × ×

/t.

Little Lamb said...

Does boneman know about her? Somebody should tell him.

Yes, it is time for a new post. We shall see what I come up with.

/t. said...

LL,

you're right

but i'd leave it to "they" to tell him :)

× × ×

/t.

Little Lamb said...

Which they?

boneman said...

Girlfriend still likes that Florida living...
Florida isn't so bad...once you get over the smell of tea. I heard the sharks on the West coast (around Tampa) are friendlier, now.
They promise to not eat anyone if they don't point and scream "SHARK!"

I think sharks would like you, Lil Lamb.
They rarely come visiting with a grill under their arms.
(they drag them along with their tails because they don't HAVE any arms)

anyway...something about liking meats cooked tartar.
(they smoke while they're eating?)

A lot of "they"s floating in this comment.
They say that there's no business like show business...
I dunno about that.
I heard there's some great money in politics.
'Course, the government has been getting tougher on corporations of late.
Now when a corporation buys an American politician, they demand a receipt.

Yeah, there's no business like show business, but...
there are PLENTY of businesses like sales.
Did you know I tried my hand at sales?
I had a lemonade stand. It wasn't very successful, though. Didn't sell any lemonade. So, I burnt down my lemonade stand and collected the insurance.
Hey... I got $38.25.
Not bad.
But that was last week, and I have to think of something to sell for next week.
Maybe pizza slices?

d=^))

Little Lamb said...

Florida is nice in the winter. I like it here.

How much will you charge for the pizza?

Elliot MacLeod-Michael said...

My girlfriend is native to Plaquemine, Louisiana (where I now live), and she will ask me if they have any yogurt in the refrigerator, even though we are the only two people who have been in the refrigerator. So I think I may have solved the mystery. "They" is my girlfriend and me.

Little Lamb said...

Oooooooooooooooh, so you're "THEY!"

Pink said...

or is the yoghurt the 'they?' in question?

I think that is really the answer.

or is it a question?

Little Lamb said...

Pink, Hi Pink! Long time no see! More to ponder over.

/t. said...

that pinks
sure makes you think, eh LL>

× × ×

/t.

Little Lamb said...

boneman said...

Little Lamb said...

/t. said...

× × ×

/t.

Little Lamb said...

Just what I was suspecting.

/t. said...

you were
suspecting
that dolly7 could
be lamb chops, too, LL...

now that's positively uncanny!

× × ×

/t.

Little Lamb said...

No, /t., some would make a reference to food.

/t. said...

speaking of food, LL,
i hope you have everything
you need for a fabulous christmas feast

Little Lamb said...

Merry Christmas Dianne! Happy New Year, too! I'm trying to stay comfy, but with weather changing it's not easy. Thank you for the best wishes.

Little Lamb said...

Hmmmm.

Pink said...

I know Lambie hasn't been kidnapped because that would mean she's a goat.

Hi LL!

Any news?

xox
Pinks

Little Lamb said...

Hi Pink! How about lamb-napped?

No news. I guess I'm just being lazy as far as this blog goes.

/t. said...

HAPPY <3 DAY, LL!

Little Lamb said...

Thank you, /t. Happy Valentines day to you too! a day late.

foam said...

Now I forgot what they said.....
And I could have sworn that I left a message on this here post a long time ago, btw. Reckon they had something to do with this?

Pink said...

Oh no! Do you think THEY ate LL?

:-O

foam said...

They ate the lamb? Oh no!

/t. said...

BBQ SEASON AGAIN!!!

/t.

Little Lamb said...

Foam, that's entirely possible. Who knows?

Pink, No they didn't eat me, YET!

Foam, No Foam, I haven't been eaten, at least as far as I know.

/t. Better go into hiding then!

dianne said...

Hello Lamby dear, I came over to see if you are OK, I see that you are still commenting, so that is good. I was becoming concerned that 'they' had abducted you.
xoxoxo ♡

Little Lamb said...

Yes, I'm still here, I just don't know what to post. Maybe I'll post bird pictures.
