Meme A Little Meme Of Me

The wonderfully wascally Whirlio has tagged me with a meme. On the one hand, the act itself makes him a bastard. On the other hand, it's the easiest and most painless meme I've ever seen and therefore carries a significant negative bastardity value, giving him a net score well into the good guy range.

Here it is. Lines 2-5 from page 59 of what I'm currently reading. Leviathan: The History of Whaling in America

He was angry that while the government of New York was claiming poverty, the governor was earning a salary that was far greater than the combined salaries of the governors of Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island. He implied that rather than being used to defray the costs of government, the taxes were being embezzled by government officials.

Myself, I already score so high on the bastard scale that even the net bastardity reduction of this meme will do me no good, so I'm not tagging anyone.

That book title makes you sound scholarly. Something which jars my mental image of you so completely that I'm forced to go find some comfort food right now.

I'm also reading a Jack Reacher novel if that helps.

Bastardy is a bit like being a ghost, and now you've acknowledged me for what I truly am, it's as if my spirit has been cast free...

Hm. Adult reading. Can't quite wrap my brain around it.

Bastardity scales. Wish they'd had those when I was out dating, baby.
Good Lord. I think some of them there dated guys woulda broken 'em. The scales.

I gotta put my meme up as well from the Whirl One.
