The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Collins/Pup ticket in '04!

    Just_a_Pup is disappointed I didn't run for governor of Michigan last time around, so he's pestering me to run for president. I'm thinking about it. He'd be my running mate.

    After our victory, here are some of our cabinet nominations.

    Budiak -- Secretary of Defense -- He'd be even more of a curmudgeon than Rumsfeld is now!

    PowerManDL -- Homeland Security -- Crowbars for everyone!

    Chris Mason -- Ambassador to the United Nations (hehe) Chris, don't you dare start "padding the hammer", we like you just the way you are! We'd leave "Bull**** Detector" as part of your official title. You could use it on official stationery and nametags and such.

    Paul Stagg Secretary of State -- you're the only one here who could do it and keep us out of world war III

    Galileo Attorney General

    Kimpy Secretary of Education

    Tryska can't think of a cabinet position, but we'd try to get her in as senate majority leader, if possible.

    What a world we'd have! Children would speak kimpanese...women would wear red velvet...and little boys would once again know its cool to play with guns.

    Other nominations??

    Send contributions directly to me of course checks payable to John Collins (or small, unmarked bills).

    Can I write some speeches for y'all?

    "Then on leg day do squats, lunges, stiff legged deadlifts, fluffernutters, and calf raises."--Belial, training a newbie

    PowermanDL on Russian culture: "Big furry hats come into play somewhere."

    "The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly; it is dearness only that gives everything its value. I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink; but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death." --Thomas Paine

    My first speech to the North Koreans:

    "I would first like to make it clear that the United States has no intention of invading sovereign North Korean territory. We have no interest in overtaking the government. We would like to seek a peaceful solution to the current crisis.

    That being said, the rhetoric coming out of your leaders' mouths will stop imediately. You are of no threat to us. You have no missles which have the capability of reaching our country, yet we have thousands of nuclear weapons which can easily reach yours. If you so much as twitch, in a military sense, towards our country, or any of our allies, we will wipe your country and its people from the face of the earth. It really is that simple. You are in no position to be flapping your gums. Shut up, do what you are told, and try to get your people out of their miserable poverty by spending some of your money on them in stead of your worthless military."

    Change in ticket!

    I hereby nominate Chris Mason for President. I gleefully step aside. If you'd have me, Chris, I'll take the position of ambassador to the United Nations. I wouldn't do it as well as you, but your talents are best used at the top. Any seconds?

    I am honored by the nomination. Heck, I wouldn't even pull a Lewinsky deal. Alas, I fear I would not make a good politician as I say what I think. I fear I would have too many enemies.

    Oh, and yes John, you can be on the ticket.

    I do have a thought on how to settle disputes with other countires. I am sure some of you have heard that chess was originally a non-violent means of warfare. I propose that I would challenge all renegade warlord types to not a chess match, but a arm wrestling match. I guarantee victory!

    Whew!

    *wipes sweat off forehead*

    Good job, Pup! Avoided our first campaign gaffe! Wow, if you had made a comment and the press got ahold of it. . .well, good job at holding your tongue.

    Karma, be careful with the "homo-esque" stuff! Although I suspect the rest of the ticket is in whole-hearted agreement with your sentiment, a better comment for purposes of positive press would have been....

    "I'd watch your back, Chris. I just loved your photos from the Glutes thread. Hey, anybody got a problem wit dat?"

    The press would love you--you'd be unstoppable!
