    When People mind their own business...

    Dave Chappelle Keeps it Real - VIDEO

    "When keeping it real goes wrong."





    Ha....seriously, sorry for yet another "minding your own business" thread-


    "Mind your own beeswax" is an acronym for “Mind your own business”; better known as MYOB.It is basically saying if I want to know what you think I’ll ask otherwise just butt out and respect my privacy. Many think the tem, “Mind your own beeswax”, originated during the colonial period but this is not true.The following is from Wikipedia –

    In the 1930s, a slang version rendered the saying as "Mind your own beeswax". Folk etymology has it that this idiom was used in the colonial period when women would sit by the fireplace making wax candles together, but this has no basis in fact.
    In the classic science fiction story The Great Explosion, Eric Frank Russell shortened "Mind Your Own Business" to "MYOB" or "Myob!", which was used as a form of civil disobedience on the planet of the libertarian Gands. It is possible that Russell is the inventor of this initialism, which is now used widely throughout the United States.

    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.
