Oignons et Poissons by Bob BrueckL

Oignons et Poissons
The sacrilegious line between unhinged turbidity and wiggly specificity decomposes the glycerophtalic rusticity of tangible teargas starkly caricaturing the sanctities splurging thru the fervid prism of degenerate munge truncating the odious iterations of scuffed facsimiles overhyping the tinny paradigm shifts confusticating the pristine concision in the asset pool demeaning the acidic frottage of cannibalistic decluttering. 

My piddly chicanery -- insistent ruses of seductive breast augmentation -- detracts from the sparsely pigmented decoy of moonlighting decay crosshatching the oddly obfuscated reiterations extricating the bittersweet silvery rubble overlaying the gross gloss of the doggedly depraved crossing-out of the disconnected grid, denying access to the detour, reinforcing shying away from the literal meandering in the tilted meadow of startup die-hards deciphering the peeled away scrimmage pertinently thwarting the pump-fake pig snacks.
