I wish I had thought of this sooner.
But you know, we all ought to start calling Obamacare by a new name, the "Barack Obama Health Insurance Commerce Act".
I guess Sarah Palin won't be losing any sleep over this, what with her "Death Panels" tweet and all.
Still, every little bit helps.
Short, sharp, scratchy birdcage *PING*.
BOHICA-the gift that will keep on giving -—and taking.
Cheers back at cha!
I like it!
>> “Barack Obama Health Insurance Commerce Act”.
That is up there with DUFU wit (and that is a 100% compliment!)
BOHICA (also spelled “B.O.H.I.C.A” and Bohica”) is an acronym that stands for “Bend Over, Here It Comes Again”.
It is used colloquially to indicate that an adverse situation is about to repeat itself, and that acquiescence is the wisest course of action. It is commonly understood as a reference to being sodomized.
An alternative etymology relates the expression to the days of sail and avoiding being struck by the boom, which would swing around the mast due to shifts in wind or the vessel’s course.
The term grew to regular use amongst the United States armed forces during the Vietnam War. Although it originated in the US military forces, and is still commonly used by USAF fighter crew chiefs, its usage has spread to civilian environments and used to describe unavoidable, unpleasant situations that have inconvenienced one before, and are about to yet again.
BOHICA - LMFAO!
Bo Hica makes makes us sicka,
All in the name of greed.
Greed to spend and spenda,
Greed to tax to the enda.
