Ornament of Truthiness

I ADORE Stephen Colbert who has described himself as "an attractive vessel through which the river of truth can flow.” He was on the cover of Parade magazine a few weeks ago and I had cut out the picture and put it on my map that I have on my wall (see Nov. 12th's post). The first ornament is a small book I made with quotes inside:

Favourite quotes :
"And that brings us to tonight's word: Truthiness. Now I'm sure some of the word-police, the "wordanistas" over at Websters, are gonna say, "Hey, that's not a word!" Well, anybody who knows me knows that I am no fan of dictionaries or reference books. They're elitist. Constantly telling us what is or isn't true, what did or didn't happen...

Take a look at this sentence: 'Timmy and me went to the store to buy milk.' Wouldn't the correct grammar really be, 'Timmy and me and Jesus went to the store to buy milk?' Because Jesus is with Timmy and I wherever us go.

You see, we're America the Beautiful, not America 'Well, At Least She Has a Great Personality'

I'm not a fan of facts. You see, the facts can change, but my opinion will never change, no matter what are the facts.

Clothes don't make the man, God does. Stop taking credit, my pants.
The second ornament I printed on card stock & pasted to a popsicle stick. It's painted gold on the back. I used a paper clip to hold the ribbon. I'm going to make LOTS of these! Here are the links to check out everyone else's AWESOME ornaments! Happy Ornament Thursday, everyone!

I have to show this to my husband - we have SC on TiVo. Too funny!

Cindy Gimbrone said...

Not even Steven Colbert himself could have come up with a better Colbert ornament (that's pronounced or-na-mey)! Fun!
