Latin abbreviation for the literal translation of "and shit", specifically, "et merda". Just like "etc." (and so forth), "i.e." (that is), and "e.g." (for example), "etm." can be used to abbreviate "and shit".
At the farmer's market I got tomatoes, cucumbers, radishes, etm.
I was just taking care of bills etm. before he came over.

Last Tuesday President Obama got off the helicopter in front of The White House carrying a baby piglet under each arm.
The squared-away Marine guard snapped to attention, saluted and said, "Nice pigs, sir."
The President replied: "These are not pigs. These are authentic Arkansas Razorback Hogs. I got one for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and I got one for Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi."
The squared-away Marine again snapped to attention, salutes and said, "Excellent trade, sir."

“We need to fundamentally restructure our economy and re-establish popular control over the private corporations.”
AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka
I wonder if he means "we" as in the government or "we" as in the unions? I don't think there's much difference anymore...

In Mt. Vernon, Texas, Drummond's Bar began construction on expansion of their building to increase their business.
In response, the local Baptist church started a campaign to block the bar from expanding with petitions and prayers. Work progressed right up until the week before the grand reopening when lightning struck the bar and it burned to the ground.
After the bar burning to the ground by a lightning strike the church folks were rather smug in their outlook, bragging about the power of prayer, until the bar owner sued the church on the grounds that the church "was ultimately responsible for the demise of his building, either through direct or indirect actions or means".
In its reply to the court, the church vehemently denied all responsibility or any connection to the building's demise.
The judge read through the plaintiff's complaint and the defendant's reply and at the opening hearing he commented, "I don't know how I'm going to decide this, but it appears from the paperwork that we have a bar owner who believes in the power of prayer, and an entire church congregation that now does not."
