This room is for general discussion that doesn't specifically fit into one of the other CatholicMatch rooms. Topics should not be overly serious as this is to be more of a "cafe setting."
Saint Peter's Square was created so that more people could be in the presence of the Pope and was named after Saint Peter, one of Jesus's apostles.

The look of horror on his innocent little face was explanation enough!
Actually, not so little face, the guy was built like a brick outhouse.
As an aside, tramp is used the same way here as overseas, though not very often.
Gosh darn it, Beverly, you figured me out! Yes, agitating, at least now Les has some answers to her questions.
BTW, I love Texans. They are way better than those wishy, washy New Englanders, or those West Coast freaks. Oops!
There I go again...Agitating!!
I can't believe a topic like yours, Les, has gone so long without a response. Especially since you are from a different country. These forums have gotten pathetic over the years....there must not be any Americans or Texans on here anymore.
Yes, they are a breed apart. We in Minnesota are taught at an early age to look down on them. However, as I've gotten older I started to realize how great they are. Strong, independent, red-blooded, traditional Americans, ignorant as hell, but I would share a foxhole with anyone of them. Besides having low IQs they just have one other problem....their worship of the Dallas Cowboys....a second-rate, minor league football team.
Texas is truly a different world. A friend and his wife lived in the country south of Dallas, and he told me if I hear a gunshot it's just a neighbor shooting an armadillo in their vegetable garden or a rattlesnake between them and their car. When my friend drove his truck to work, he walked out the door with his coffee mug in one hand and a .357 Magnum in the other for the rattlers. Another Texan I know once shot a repo man on his property, and only had to fill out a police report. A real Texan doesn't dial 911 in an emergency. It's a far different place than the People's Republic of Maryland where unfortunately I call home.
By the way, in Texas they call armadillos "possum on the half-shell!"
