Glad That Chew Deterrent Worked Out For You

We've all likely heard the list of the "Seven Deadly Sins"

The current list:
Gluttony (does chocolate count?)
Sloth (three toed or the other kind?)

From Our Household - the Updated List of Additional Deadly Sins (with some classic Barkley photos)

Monday Mornings
Monday Morning Breath
Reality Stars with No Discernible Talent
Slow  metabolism
Computer Spam

"Hey you, with the 33 bags of Tater Tots and the second party check from the Bank of Kazakhstan, get out of the Express Lane!"

Dumping someone by email
Barney the Dinosaur
Frozen Diet Dinners
Fashion Designers that think all women are shaped like Pretzel Sticks
Last Cupcake
Drinks with Umbrellas (unless served to me on a beach by the 10th or 11th Doctor Who)
Foreign Call Centers
Round Abouts At Rush Hour
Celebrity Fitness DVD's (picking up brass at the LEO range will do more for your gluts)
Clingy women
Clingy men
Reversing the Polarity (between the Enterprise's lack of fuses and Geordi's "We'll reverse the polarity,!" I'm surprised the ship didn't detonate when they went into warp drive)
Turkey Bacon
Erectile Dysfunction Ads
Bathroom Scales 
Telephone Solicitors
Power Tools and Glögg

Deficit Spending
Mixing bleach and ammonia for "more cleaning power"
Commenting on a woman's weight when she is eating a pint of  ice cream and crying

And finally, the 2016 Deadliest Sin as submitted by Abby Lab



  1. BOL! That was funny and Abby finished up with the pawfect photo!

    Keep Calm & Bark On!

    Murphy & Stanley

  2. The first picture made us LOL for real!

  3. Hari OM
    Think the polarity got reversed somewhere in the ether close to this hub this week, so have spent the morning in the aft warp shaft. Think it may have worked, but yet to be tested!!! This is a great list, but Abby, your pick may be the best! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  4. BOL! you nailed it!
    Mr Bailey, Hazel & Mabel

  5. You need those brass sorting tubs! And you forgot Left Lane Bandits, and Parking Lot Lizards...

  6. Hi again. We were wondering if it would be OK to use a picture of you, Abby, on our Valentine's Day post on the Daily Bone. Remember you went to the 2015 Valentine's Day Blogville party with Joey dog? Even though you have a new boyfriend, Joey dog still thinks fondly of you and reads your doggie blog every day, and would like to mention that in our post. It will be funny and a bit romantic, and respectful too.

    1. That would be nice - I had such a good date with Joey and consider him one of my best friends. Thank you so much for thinking of me.

  7. I love your list of sins :o) and I agree for that call centers... I'm sometimes glad that I can hang up without talking to them... "the next operator is available for you in.... 87 minutes" yay a lot of nerves will survive for today :o)
