Maxwell 44: Must We Permit Mephistopheles and Beelzebub to Perform Financial and Performance Audits

Recommended Posts

Coconut Flan

Continued from here:

This is admittedly a bit self-serving, but we have reached the end of the vest titles and when my daughter read this to me, it fit the Maxwells so well that I had to use it.  It's a line from a rebuttal to Proposition Y in Glendora, CA, that is so fundie we couldn't quit laughing.

Yes it did.  57% yes votes.

 

Note this was the rebuttal argument.

I’m impressed he even included Mephistopheles. I don’t even know if it’s spelled right. Yet I’m still impressed. Most just include Beelzebub and leave it at that. Not David Edward Kenney. He went Above and beyond.

I have some ideas for a thread title. I don't know if something similar has been done, but this idea is based on one of my pet peeves with them. Steve hates television with a passion and yet their books are proudly endorsed by the Duggars.  So something like

Maxwells: Scorning Television while being Endorsed by TV Stars

Maxwells: Writing books against television for people who watch television

Maxwells: Too Good for TV, Too Obsecure Without TV Celebrity Endorsements

(These are just some ideas in case people want them.)

No more sleeveless garment titles? But, I was so invested in them! I'm feeling down.

I feel sort of quilty for being such a baby about it. I'd smoke a joint, but I'm not really a puffer.

There must be a way to bring them back. Maybe if I went through channels . . .

This was written by something called an "Education Lawyer." He used the phrase "unholy plandemic." Was this a letter to the editor or what? 

SO MUCH TO DISCUSS! 

"As they lay on lavish couches, delight in the taste of lamb, and compare the bouquet of fine wines at our expense." Well, now I believe this might actually be a lawyer. Still. 

Since I don't know what Measure Y is, I'm just going to go out on a holy limb, perhaps an olive branch, and suggest that it was some sort of bond or property tax to support Citrus College? (Which apparently has caused people to "disturb the canopy of heaven".

Yeah, that post about window washing was so damn boring. And YES to all the people who say that the Maxwells are actually quite lazy despite their schedule-touting ways. Remember Teri taking weeks to sew a SINGLE BUTTON onto a cardigan? Actually, that may be more procrastinating than laziness. I’m a mega procrastinator too, but I don’t go around talking about how marvellous scheduling my entire life into tiny increments is.

I plan to bring up new thread titles near the end of this thread so at that time we could consider returning to the vest theme, a new theme, or no theme.

It was in a guide to local ballot measures pamphlet mailed to all the households in that district.  We could never find it online.  There were several arguments for and against many of the measures.

Thread titles: Venturing into Vestlessness? The One Where the Maxwells Are Boring?

Honestly, I hope the comment on "Happy Children" in the cleaning windows post was a joke. I can just hear Michelle Duggar in her put-on baby voice sing-songing "Many hands make light work"

Coming up Next Month: Anna explains the steps for cleaning the wheelie trash can!

Why wouldn't they just wash the windows, then if they clean windows became dirty due to another project, wash them again? And why would they tell this story to anyone? 

Sit down kids, today I'm going to tell you the story of How I Neglected Your Grandmother.

I signed up to their email list and the window cleaning blog has made me laugh out loud all day no matter what other stuff I have had in my inbox.  I don't care how often anyone cleans their windows but imagine making your grandma sit and pose for photos in her bedroom while you announce to the world that her windows have been dirty for 2 and a half years!  😂😂

I had to go back & take a look. I think that is definitely a remote I have one similar.

Because the way they do windows is really hard! Seriously, Windex and paper towels? I have a lot of large windows and glass-paned  doors (like 35, maybe? Yah, we don't throw stones) and I'm not ashamed to say I hire someone to wash them twice a year. The professional cleaners use long-handled mops and squeegees and buckets of cleaning solution and they get those windows sparkling inside and out in about an hour. If I didn't have balance issues that keep me from being safe on a ladder I'm sure I could get the same equipment and cleaning products the pros use.

So has this been discussed lately? What a sad little website. I can almost feel bad for Christopher because he really seems to be struggling to find his place but he’s never once thought to question how his indoctrination at the hands of his father hobbled him.  Everything he does is so mediocre and clueless and as a person he just strikes me as someone who’s weak and ineffectual. Anna, on the other hand, even in her illness comes across as much more dynamic and strong. His brothers and even his sisters, with their Groundhog Day, make-work lives, have more going for them. If the Maxwells were a rock band, Christopher would be the “other guy,” the replaceable one whose name you can never remember.

I was confused initially because this is exactly what it is! It looks like the intro* “start designing here” for school kids to build a website. 

*what’s this called? A foundation?

Wow. That's a terrible website. His innate "Christopher-ness" shines.

He says "First, I only build websites for small businesses, and only for small businesses that are a good fit. If you are a large business or if we aren’t “clicking” together, then I’m not the one for you. I want you to be happy and also to feel a personal connection with the agency handling your site"

On his photography website before the last re-do said something similar after he laid out his criteria - no dancing, modest dresses, no drinking, etc... something like "there are plenty of other photographers who will do your wedding if you don't meet my criteria". 

Poor guy was given a giant ego but not giant abilities to match. 

He's still listed on Swift Otter's site. I wonder if he's trying to launch this business & get out from working for his younger brother? 

Four Point Eleven is "copyrighted" 2019 so he started last year. And now that I've typed the name of the company, for some reason it made me crack up.

Is there a reason it’s called Four Point Eleven?

Okay, I know this might not be what everyone sees -- I'm on a tablet in landscape mode.  On the other hand, I'm sure lots of people use tablets in landscape mode, so I'm not an atypical potential customer in that sense.

Okay, so.  If I wanted someone to design my website -- is there anything here -- anything at all -- that might put me off just the teensiest bit from thinking this is a top notch web design guy?

My suggestion for the 'devastating circumstance': the eldest Moody daughter is rescued kidnapped by a non-binary biker witch and starts learning magic.
