{April 5, 2011}   Look On The Blogside

I would like to address the seriousness and importance of one of our constitutional rights: The right to Bare Arms.  I know that this is an important stance in our Bill of Rights, but I am beginning to re-think this right as more of an earned privilege.  Has anyone witnessed over the many years  the  grouping of esoteric arms that are on display?  Personally I think some of these upper extremities need to be hidden and retract into their  over priced Hollister button downs.  My concern is for the public at hand.  I recall strap hanging on the N train during the dogs days of summer and commuting from the City to Brooklyn during rush hour. I was accosted by more arms than Goetz carried on a lonely afternoon. It didn’t matter which way I faced in that car,I still had a bare arm hitting me in the face, the shoulder, the back, and the top of my head.  These arms were tattooed, flabby, bony, massive, hairy, and smelly and were attached to people of all races and creeds. Some of these  arms had the barrel of their pit shoved right between your eyes and you couldn’t see the forest through the trees.  It was simply hair raising.

I’ve seen Arms loaded with sweat and ready for action as they pump the Irony throughout the Gym. I watched arms dangling from pick-up trucks as their joints loosen from the bumps in the road.  I’ve seen triceps wiggle to the tune of Katey Perry as they fist pump into thin air creating a drive-by of near misses with the slippage of tank tops.  I have seen Arms that are larger than life that could be put to great use but choose to remain stagnant and lie dormant from lack of use.  I have seen some of these Bare Arms remain at an arms length when it came time to raise their arm for a cause. I cringe at the sight of a Bare Arm flapping like a seal at Sea World while it dives into its third round of French fries.  And I don’t much care for that Bare Arm that has been discarding their empty Frito bags onto the sides of the road.  I simply can’t handle the Bare Arm that reaches underneath the sneeze screen and stretches to reach the lettuce on the opposite side of the salad bar and their exposed armpit has a brush with the radishes. I really have a problem with the odoriferous Bare Arm at any level.  I think those should be BANned.

Do I like the right to Bare Arms?  Yes, if they are not used in an offensive way and cause undo underarm harm.  I’d hate to see Bare Arms attached to the wrong hands. To Bare Arms is the Secret Old Spice of life that holds us to a higher Degree and helps us to stay clear of the Red Zone.

And, besides,  I like to Bare Arms, even if the result is a Farmer’s tan.

I love to bare arms… it’s one of my best features! As far as the 2nd amendment goes, I live in Texas… I think baring arms is somewhere in our Texas motto. Come and Take It.

OK, so I don’t really *get* your humor (really, I don’t!), but wanted to drop by and say thank you for stopping by my blog! Your comment made me smile 🙂

I suffer from the left-arm tan all summer! As an Italian-American, I tan fast. But it’s never even. Oh well, I have no tattoos and I keep my sleeves decent too.

Firstly, I say this: ew. And secondly, can I have an amen? Some things should never be seen. I don’t think you can get any more vivid than pairing armpit hair with radishes–don’t know if I’ll ever get that vision out of my head. 😉

Very funny. I like it. Would you rather bare arms or arm bears? I’ve never seen a bear with a loaded weapon before.

Very,very true! Funny!!!

love it and behind you all the way!

Thanks Chris for dropping in….

spread the humor.

As always: clever, concise, rambling, funny, and insightful — all at the same time.

Thank you kind sir..and thank you for stopping in.

You’ve really got to get the right angle to tolerate my bare arms. There’s stuff going on underneath that I have no control over. Where’s my staple gun?

LMAO! Thanks for stopping in!

I’ll take bare arms over a spandex-covered butt

I am a security officer. I believe in this. What I don’t believe in is the fact that our Government wants to publish all the names of those who have the FOID card.

Your use of cliches is masterful
