Sudorific sounds odorific! In any case, that reminds me of the Won. Michelle says that he all “smelly and snorey” when he awakes in the morning and the girls don’t like to be around him. So, we can saay that in the morning, Obama is sudorific until he hits the shower.

I imagine Rafiki was pretty sudorific when he made that pronouncement. He’s a baboon, and all, and I don’t think they shower.

Our pseud-horrific bungler,
Der Reader, in chief,
Has begun to sudorifically,
Sweat even the small stuff.

He used to have a worry, about the size of ears,
And now we tend to mock the things he fears.

He cannot vote just present,
From his vacation lounge,
His words get heard though dissonance,
Attends the meaning-scrounge.

He cannot forge a forum,
Among his ardent fans,
Assembling but a quorum,
Within great bleacher stands.

Where once they gasped and fainted,
Now they merely yawn,
And now the twilight of his reign,
Becomes our bright new dawn.

.

“It is time,” indeed.

How disgusting and low class to say something like that about your husband, and even worse when he is the leader of the free world! Could they disgust me any more?

I haven’t thought about Rafiki in a long time. when my daughter was smaller, we used to watch Timon & Pumbaa cartoons as a bedtime ritual. They were pretty good.

"I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sudorifics!"!



Nos genuflectitur ad non princeps sed Princeps Pacem!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

As a result of this, I'm sure airport security will become even more of a sudorific experience.
