"Feliz Natal" Dec 22, 2020

Matthias, and everyone: I wish you a "Feliz Natal", and cheers to health, happiness, and prosperity in 2021!
I would take this opportunity to say that I am really sorry for "certain" insults and attacks I read here yesterday.
Some people do not know how to behave in a professional context, and it is something deplorable.

Some people do not know how to behave in a professional context, and it is something deplorable.
In difficult times, when many of us are suffering (mainly because we have sick relatives with or without Covid-19... my old father was tested positive for this virus, although he's at home with mild symptoms), reading such barbarities is a horrible thing.
This is why I didn't want to get involved in the discussion. This is neither the time, nor the place to address harsh and bitter words.
Here's a better song in Portuguese, a dialect from Cap Vert, "After the Quarantine", a message of hope:

Feliz Natal! Take care my friends!

...as I don't fear much for myself but for infecting others. May your father recover soon and well, Sandra.

My dearest friends, Dec 22, 2020

I would have thought that taking care of an infected blood-relative takes precedence over reading "barbarities" and constantly digging out YouTube material, but perhaps that is the way in the (I'm going to poke you at every turn to extort an exchange from you) make-believe world! Same new old story!

A superman and a worm Dec 22, 2020

One night I went to a bar with my husband and his colleague. At some point, they began to talk about work. Having nothing to do, I in turn began to talk to the next table. One of the men, tacky-and-cocky-looking, started to bother me, knowing very well my husband was right there. He was bragging about something. I think it was about money. I wasn’t really listening. He went on and on and on until he arrived at a conclusion, ‘I’m a superman!’

Now, you are asking for it.

I look at him with narrowed eyes and lift my pinkie up to let him know how big I think his dick is. I say, ‘You? You are nothing but a worm!’

I was raised not to "exchange" with married women, sorry!
Besides, I lost my cape, and my worm is hibernating 😝😂

You know what your problem is? I'm reading you like a book!
You keep trying to stress me one after the other, hoping that you will ultimately succeed in getting a violent reaction from me!

Keep trying, narrowed eyes! 😝😂

It's Cape Verdean Creole.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cape_Verdean_Creole
We can understand a few words in Portuguese only.
"Mim ká falá nada crioulo!" ("Eu não falo crioulo"; in English "I don't speak Creole!")

Superwoman, more like Dec 23, 2020

Can that line ever work with anyone? They might not all put him firmly in his place like Zibow did, but it can't ever be a winner, surely.

Chat-up lines Dec 23, 2020

I'm not a chat-up line kinda guy, but I did once tell a woman that I had three cocks.

To be fair, we were discussing poultry at the time.
