frothy

‘Twas frothy, and the slithy beans
    Did grind and trimble in the shabe;
All mimsy were the ice-o-treens,
    And the tea bags outgrabe. 

“Beware the Barista, my son
    The beard that waves, avuncular!
Beware the Managers, and shun
    The frumious customer!”

He took his vorpal wallet in hand;
    Long time the manxome cup he sought—
So rested he on a stool by the window,
    And sat awhile in thought.

And, as in uffish thought he sat,
    The Barista, with apron of flame,
Came sniffling through the trambly pat,
    And burbled as it came!

Mocha! Latte! And swiftly there
    The vorpal wallet produced a bill!
He ordered three, with such great speed,
    It left the server dead.

“And hast thou slain the Barista?
    Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!”
    He chortled in his joy.

‘Twas frothy, and the slithy beans
    Did grind and trimble in the shabe;
All mimsy were the ice-o-treens,
    And the tea bags outgrabe.

Rick Santorum tells boy not to use pink bowling ball

Washington– At a campaign event at a bowling alley in Wisconsin today, GOP presidential hopeful Rick Santorum told a boy who reached for a pink bowling ball: “You’re not gonna use the pink ball. We’re not gonna let you do that. Not on camera.” Santorum went on to say “Friends don’t let friends use pink balls.” The comments were tweeted by Reuters reporter Sam Youngman.

“This is another example of Rick Santorum intentionally making ignorant statements that have a real impact on LGBT people,” said HRC Vice President of Communications Fred Sainz. “Whether he’s comparing our marriages to inanimate objects, saying our children would be better off with a parent in prison as opposed to two loving same-sex parents, or calling open military service a ‘tragic social experiment;’ he’s proven that he thinks LGBT people are second-class citizens not worthy of dignity or respect. In this case, he’s advancing tired gender norms by implying a boy should be ashamed or embarrassed to use a certain color bowling ball.”

Santorum’s anti-LGBT record speaks for itself: in addition to his frequent and vitriolic remarks about issues like marriage equality or LGBT families, he consistently voted against workplace protections while serving in the U.S. Senate, and was an early and vocal supporter of the discriminatory Defense of Marriage Act.

“Kids have enough to worry about,” added Sainz. “They don’t need Rick Santorum telling them that using a pink bowling ball is a bad thing.”
