Anyway, I picked up this picturesque postcard ofrepparttar blessed ballyhooing buglugs. They look perfectly happy but don’t be deceived. In reality, they’re just a gang of glad-handing grasshoppers. They don’t play golf, eat burgers, or drink beer -- and none can frost a rock! Come to think of it, apart fromrepparttar 127649 company of bugs andrepparttar 127650 elusive flop fairy, this pathetic planet has precious little going for IT!!

To put "IT" bluntly, life on “IT” is just shy of a tittynope*. The jolly green grasshoppers andrepparttar 127651 carefully manicured green fairways with sand traps as far asrepparttar 127652 eye can see certainly make for an utterly harmless world. Regrettably, without a pair of golf clubs, a dimpled white ball, andrepparttar 127653 notion that 19th hole even exists on this planet -- ”IT” is about as fun as bag of toads!

Life Lesson 42: Remember to talk to your travel agent before ever embarking on a flight of fancy to a planet called “IT” in a galaxy named “Have-a-Nice-Day”!!


*"Tittynope" for you whiffling word-peckers means "a small quantity of anything left over".

If you want to know what those green, glad-handing grasshoppers from "IT" look like -- ask any four-year old, or failing that request some help from a Flying Saucer Club member.

For any party theme including Mardi Gras party, Luau Party, Cowboy Hats theme, Character party, Bridal Showers, Super Bowl, Baby Showers, Wedding or a holiday event like Christmas, Hanukkah or Halloween remember to include light sticks and Turn Outrepparttar 127657 Lights!
