Sweet Talkin' Quote of the Week

"She's my f--king soulmate, dude."

-Alex Rodriguez, re: Madonna

Aw! That is exactly what Josh The Pilot said to the priest who married us when he asked him his thoughts about the sacrament of holy matrimony.

The f-bomb as an adjective of emphasis has very much found its way into common parlance, to the point where its original connotation has become lost, but here, in the context of Madonna, A-Rod has managed to find a way to make f--k mean what it actually does. On behalf of the English language, I say: Well done, Mr. Rod!

Therefore, this is officially my New Favorite Phrase. The versatilities are endless! It's applicable in nearly every situation in which we may find ourselves:

"Tell me, why did you support Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primary?" "She's my f--king soulmate, dude."

"But, soft! What light through yonder window breaks? She's my f--king soulmate, dude."

"...And that's the evening news. This is Mary Beth Ellis, signing off, and remember, Cincinnati--'She's my f--king soulmate, dude.'"

THis tops the ice cream for me :
"A-Rod’s wife Cynthia Rodriguez, believes Madonna used kabbalah to brainwash Yankee star into believing they are “soulmates." "
Man, if I had only known! I could be married to Liam Neeson!

I've been using this reason for why I've been reading M.B. for years.
