I like that pompous ass

Once upon a time, Jeff worked with a pleasant pompous ass. When I first met the person, I told Jeff, "I do believe he has the mannerisms of a pompous ass." But you know what? He was actually a really nice guy. In fact, I ended up saying to Jeff later, "I really like that pompous ass."

He couldn't help that he had that pompous ass voice--you know, kinda like Tom Brokaw's? I'm not saying Tom Brokaw is a pompous ass, in fact I think he's a swell guy, just that his voice has definite pomposity to it, you know?

I guess the moral of the story is that you can't judge a pompous ass by his voice. Like, don't judge a book by it's cover/don't judge a person by their voice? Or something like that...perhaps you can just take away from it what you will? A "moral of the story free-for-all". Fabulous fun!


  1. Oohhh, intriguingly good moral of the story. Now I'll have to practice my voice and see how much pomposity I'm presenting?

    By the way, I called you today and my atty called me at exactly the same time. So if you had an endless blank message from me, that's why.


    Oh, and the vinegar trick is totally working. All I've had to do is threaten vinegar and it worked.

  2. Hi, Marci! Thanks for the kind words about my blog. I am bookmarking yours and as soon as my new computer is up and running, I will be checking yours out too!


  3. I just like the word "pomposity"

  4. See, I prefer the term "pompous windbag." Especially since my best friend from high school tried to use the phrase and it came out "papa swinbag."

    To this day, I call people papa swinbags all the time.

  5. Thank you for saying it like it is. I love the use of the word ass in the best context. You have made my Friday. Have a great weekend Marci.
