I thought that it would be fun to have a contest on how many errors of fact are in Ms. Butt's load.

The format I thought up is in three parts; a "bidding" phase where we can put up the number, 4, 5, 6, etc... The second phase will be the highest bidder listing the errors they see, and the third will be a "wild card" prize if anyone can add extra errors in addition to the high bidder. The First Place winner gets the traditional bottle of single malt Scotch. The Wild Card should be a box of chocolate full of anti-oxidants.

Is Ms. Butt hurt by your suggestion?

So, we are to vote, right? I'll just hazard a guess without enduring the drivel: 10.

First of all, our butt is an important muscle, helping us to stand erect.

There's one.  :p

Well, since Kristine is the only entry, she will probably win by defalt.

Now for phase two, list all ten errors. (I only noted 9, but just listening to her made me dizzy).

 :D

PS: You cannot shimmy without a butt.

True enough!

Ugh. I have to wade through this drivel again (I did finally listen to it).

1. From the look of her hair, she never gave up AquaNet. But she was only using it to stop runs in her nylons, not to control that weathered bird's nest that she calls her hairstyle.
2. Global warming is not caused by CFCs, but apparently holes in the head are (hence the ratted comb-over).
3. She was told "not to eat chocolate" by her gym teacher, not her science teacher.
4. She was told "not to eat chocolate" by her prom date, not her science teacher.
5. She was told "not to eat chocolate" by her mirror, not her science teacher.
6. She never went to science class. She was always sitting in the Principal's Office for sneaking chocolate in Political Science class (an anti-social behavior that apparently continues to this day).
7. She never stopped eating milk chocolate (she just gave up having milk duds in her pockets), and she never started eating dark chocolate (because it doesn't taste as good to her).
8. She never mentions that the Taliban likes to use Prell shampoo. (This is a fact! )
9. That outfit. All wrong! :D
10. She does not acknowledge that evolution gave us a butt which allows her to stand upright even after eating all of that chocolate.

P.S. I should have said that there are at least 10 errors. She is rather like Ann Coulter who in her book Godless committed multiple errors in each sentence necessitating a veritable matrix of corrective annotations.

What I had hoped for was a bit more like:

Lies, and gross errors of fact:

Transcript from Think Progress, "At the risk of drawing this out, which I hate to do(1), but I do know, as Rep. Dunn has mentioned, that I was taught things in science class in high school which have turned out not to be true.(14) I remember so many of us when we were seniors in high school, we gave up Aqua Net hairspray. You remember why we did that? Because it was causing global warming(2 a,b,c)! That aerosol in those cans(3) was causing global warming(4). Since then, scientists have said(5) maybe we shouldn’t have given up that aerosol can because that aerosol was actually absorbing(6) the earth’s rays(7) and keeping us from global warming(8).

So, so many things we learned in science class(14) have turned out not to be true.

What about eating chocolate? You know, I was told, don’t eat chocolate(9). Good dark chocolate is full of what? Anti-oxidants!(10) Some chocolate is good for you. So many things that we learned in science class.(14, and she flunked English too).

What this bill does is protects a teacher(11) — not mandates what a teacher teaches — it protects a teacher when a child asks a critical thought question about something like global warming or evolution(12). They have the right to ask that question, and the teacher has the right to not make them feel stupid for asking(13)!"

(1) She does not mind drawing things out at all,
(2 a, b, c) a, She was apparently a HS senior in the late 1960s (we are the same age); global warming was not yet considered an issue, the only possible issue was ozone depletion. b, Ozone depletion was not an issue in the late 1960s. c, CFCs used as propellants are weak greenhouse gases and had negligible effect on global warming.
(3) There is no aerosol in the cans, the aerosol is produced in the can’s nozzle.  
(4) The hairspray contents, polyurethane, acetone, and CFCs, of the cans didn’t contribute directly to warming.  
(5) “Scientists” have not said anything she has mentioned, or is about to mention.
(6) The hairspray aerosol (misted plastic) sprayed on girl’s hair does not absorb global warming “rays.”
(7) The Earth does not have global warming “rays.”
(8) Neither the hair spray components, nor the generated aerosol contribute to cooling. There are aerosols, like clouds, that do. Clouds are not like hairspray.
(9) I doubt this woman was told not to eat chocolate in science class because she seems to have never attended a science class.
(10) “Although a bar of chocolate exhibits strong antioxidant activity, the health benefits are still controversial because of the saturated fats present,” *1
(11) Teachers are already protected, and expected to teach “critical” thinking, and what is a “critical thought problem?” (Two alternating hypothesis left Philadelphia …).
(12) The bill is to teach creationism, and the bitch knows it.
(13) Teachers don’t need to be “protected” from “not making a child feel stupid.” A pattern of making a child “feel stupid” is abuse.
(14) Ms. Butt learned nothing in science class. Nothing a teacher could do would have prevented Ms. Butt form being stupid, regardless of how she feels about it. She does not seem to realize she is stupid, but she isn’t in school anymore (worse the luck).

(9) I doubt this woman was told not to eat chocolate in science class because she seems to have never attended a science class.


Were there not warnings against chocolate consumption, originating in the 60s or 70s, concerning its contribution to acne and tooth decay? I seem to recall such myths being promoted, but I don't remember the source for those claims.

My memory is a bit clouded by age, but I seem to recall that it was said that chocolate candy was unhealthy- mostly milk chocolates with more fats and sugar than chocolate.
