Did any big fish ever swallow them up only to later spit them out? Or does that only happen to godly men, because their bullshit is so hard to swallow?

Ask the Little Mermaid what she was doing, when her parents weren't around, and she wasn't married yet ;-)

Uh, OK, next time I run into her, I'll ask her. What fishing hole does she hang out in?

She is opposed to fishing!  Millennial Little Mermaid is triggered into her safe space ... where you can't find her!  Running?  Arrogantly showing off land-lubber superiority?

Its because women, like hurricanes, are all consuming vortexes that consume everything and leave nothing but misery in their wake.

She made plenty of money on her own.

Sometimes I am not sure whether to argue against a stupid post of just ignoring it,  hoping others will ignore it too.  And I'm not sure about this one.

Just ignoring it is an option.  So is saying to ignore it.

The comment I was gigging was ... feminist.  Of course women can earn their own money.  But the target was too tempting to not use as a gig against irresponsible monetary policy.  Without all that fake credit, the young woman in the picture wouldn't be able to buy all that stuff, to keep the fake economy going.

Harvey was a male named Hurricane.  So was Andrew.

I didn't find anything definitive through a google search.

Looks like there have been a few named Mary, though.
