For Lent, I'm giving up....

... Lent!

I figure I'll make that empty ritual of self-sacrifice even more empty.

Last time round I gave up sex with women.
This year I'm giving up sex with men.
Seeing as it is an election year I really aught to give up sex with morons; but a guy has to have sumthin.

Frack it. I give up.

(Want serious? Meat. (Jeez... not THAT kind of meat, silly). I always do that to clear out my system, and maybe drop enough weight to slip into that battle armor I wore for the prom... Been doing the 40 day vegan thing for years now. Plus it makes that deep fried Bacon wrapped TurDucKin stuffed with a Bacon wrapped Ham (With vodka-bourbon glaze) on Easter that much better... just ask my local E.R...)

Just give up trying. Go with the flow.

And I'll have some bacon to celebrate.
