Toss r-o-t-t-e-n eggs here -only OVER-EASY!

BY Dhani on December 8, 2013
0 | 0 Favorites SIX reminds me of the counter-culture books of the 60s, like LENORE KANDEL's provocatively titled "FUCK", which I think was a failed attempt to neutralize a "bad" word by repeating it over & over or making it the title.

Then there was the social & political activist ABBIE HOFFMAN, who wrote "STEAL THIS BOOK!", which I believed caused a minor uproar in bookstores nationwide when some hippies tried to take the author's advice. It did sell a quarter of a million copies.

TOSS rotten eggs, yeah! Like the cancer I had back in 1986 & any other "bad things", like rejections & name-calls that are hurled at me, I've learned it's best to EMBRACE them, LET them GO & LET GOD!
