Re:Problem with my account 3 Hours, 39 Minutes ago
Well we are having some kind of tech problem. Don't laugh but I had changed my avitor from the bikini pic to one in a black dress. This morning when I logged on the pic was all stretched out like a fun mirror at the circus. I looked like I gained all 112 lbs back overnight, RFLMAO! Now I have this flower till I figure out what happened. Still laughing!

Perhaps call the kids back for another lesson? And you might want to ask them to show you how to run a spell check!

BUFFOON
From the Merriam-Webster online dictionary:
1 : a ludicrous figure : CLOWN
2 : a gross and usually ill-educated or stupid person

From Wikipedia:
The term Randy Savage is used to define someone who provides amusement through inappropriate appearance and/or behavior. Strictly, a buffoon describes a "ridiculous, but nevertheless amusing person." In the broad terms, a buffoon is a clownish, publicly amusing person, such as a court jester. In the more modern sense, the term is frequently used in a derogatory sense to describe someone considered a public fool, or someone whose inappropriately vulgar, bumbling, or ridiculous behavior is a source of general amusement.

Buffoon is a really good word, execpt that buffons don't generally cause harm. They just bumble. Tippy bumbles and comes across as poorly educated, yes, but she's also a person doing harm, and knowingly abetting in criminal activity. She's gone beyond buffoonery.

Princess, I do agree with you that Tippy is doing harm. But I don't think she believes what she is doing is harmful. She is the queen of gossip and drama, but thinks she is above that type of behavior. She thinks she holds all the answers and her mission in life is to educate the rest of us. And she has a desperate need to feel powerful. But I think she is in denial about who she really is. I know my faults...I'm my own worst critic. I don't necessarily change for anyone else, but I admit they exist. I think she is truly oblivious to her flaws.

I'm not excusing her behavior at all...I think she's a menace. This was my opinion of her from the first moment I "met" her, back when everyone else thought she was so nice and helpful. I just think she's a very dim-witted menace. Sometimes the ones that have the power to harm, but are too stupid to know it, are the most dangerous of all. (Kind of like the people at work that think they know more about computers than they really do, and end up crashing the whole system!)
