Perfeshional? Who u callin' Perfeshional?

What is PG? By DON WINNER for Panama-Guide.com - I just love it when people get ticked off for some reason or the other and the come at me with comments like "that's not very professional" or "you'll damage your reputation..." Yeah, right. Who ever said I was professional? I mean, I just kinda fell into this, I do whatever the hell I want, I don't sugar coat anything, I speak clearly and plainly, I say whatever the hell is on my mind, and I pick the words I use carefully for efficiency and the greatest impact. If someone is acting like a prick, then I'll call them a prick. If I think I smell bullshit, then I'll "raise the bullshit flag." And believe it or not there really are assholes in this world, or another way to say "... he's a particularly unpleasant kind of fellow..." I like to post pictures of hot chicks in bikinis - not so much for you guys, that's mostly for me. And 99.9% of the feedback I get from people sounds like this - "I don't always agree with your politics or your point of view, but I know I can trust you to tell the truth, call a spade a spade, speak clearly, and to tell it like it is." And that's my state secret. A little controversy helps every now and then, just to keep it interesting. Anyway, keep those comments coming. I love it when you call me "unperfeshional" - it makes my nipples twitch...

Yeah, I'm here for the pictures too. My doctor told me that I need to do something to lower my blood pressure. He gave me a choice. Set-up an aquarium and stare at the fish, or stare at women with big boobs. Forget the fish, I prefer the other prescription! Now I have an excuse.

By the way Don, you forgot to put a "g" at the end of callin' otherwise, spot on man!

Hi Don,

You know I love and support Panama-Guide, and I appreciate the work you do. But, golly, do you have to swear so much? I mean, words like a**hole should be reserved for the locker room, don't you think? You could possibly offend someone, somewhere, someday, and that would be.. you know.. tragic.

So come on - let's stop using words like pr*ck, b*tch, a**hole. And you should really stop talking about h**kers, pr*stitutes and s*x. It's not very n*ce.

Are you busy this weekend? We should get together and sing Kumbayah.

Have good day,

Jeff

The "Too Many Words" Version Of My Response: Thank you very much for taking the time to contact us and for leaving your feedback to this article. As you well know, your opinion is very important to us. We consider the thoughts and feelings of each and every one of our valued readers to be critically important to our continued strategic success, and our goal of being recognized as the single best source of English language news in the Republic of Panama. And while we continually strive to achieve the highest possible levels of satisfaction for all of our readers wherever and whenever possible, we learned long ago it's generally very difficult, and many times impossible to make everyone happy, all of the time. Specifically, with regards to the concerns you voiced about our habitual use of explicit language, and since you apparently missed the spirit and intent of the base article, allow me to explain further. For the most part, it's generally possible to say anything without the need to resort to profanity or "swear words." As a rule, you are absolutely correct - it's possible to express almost any thought or concept using words and language that are not profane, colloquial street or urban expressions generally used in the common lexicon, and rather choose more precise language for our sophisticated and refined audience. However, generally speaking, and as this response exemplifies, sometimes it can take hundreds if not thousands of words to express a through or an opinion that can simultaneously be summed up in a more simple, albeit profane, single word or shortened phrase. In short, it comes down to efficiency of effort and a need to get to the point quickly. You see we have a very small staff and very seldom to we have the luxury of being able to sit and contemplate the finer points of grammatical expression, to choose our words carefully, and to construct and craft each and every article word by word. Our effort is much more like fast food than fine dining - "grab it and growl" as they say. Unfortunately at times we are forced to cut corners for the sake of efficiency, and the first victim of those time constraints is usually the more refined use of the English language. What's more, it's a big Internet out there. If you don't appreciate our use of language then you are of course free to spend your time visiting other websites in an effort to obtain the same level of informational services we make available at our website. And, we wish you the best of luck. Once again, thank you for your comment. (That response took 20 minutes to write).

The Straight Forward Response To This Comment: Fuck that... (five seconds).
