Stickling...

This afternoon, I accused Megan of being a stickler (exactly why I can't remember). Actually, I believe I sarcastically asked, "Stickle much?"

I wasn't sure if stickle was a verb and I'm now too bored by the subject to even look it up. I mean, you never hear anyone say, "I hate to stickle, but..." or "Stop stickling, you stickler!" After contemplating it I knew it was worthy of a blog post. That, my friends, is how desperate I am for material these days.

Pictured above is Richard E. Stickler, Assistant Secretary of Labor for Mine Safety and Health. Do you think he lives up to his name? Judging by the problems with mines these days, I have my doubts.

Did Megan stickle you with a kick in the stickler?

Richard Stickler has it easy. Imagine what Erich Wanker has to do to live up to his name.

Do you think his friends call him "Dick", or does he introduce himself that way, a la James Bond:

"The name is Stickler...Dick Stickler."

"Assistant Secretary of Labor for Mine Safety and Health" implies that there is a position above him that is the actual "Secretary of Labor for Mine Safety and Health".

This is our government in action!

It's not a verb, but it should be because otherwise, how will Megan find you so charming?

"Stickle much?" is very funny, dude.

I was going to say that he was a Stickler for toupees, but Bubs just laid down the punchline smackdown.

I'm a real stickler for being lax about stuff.
