I like this greeting card message

Posted by Richard on August 23, 2017

American Greetings apparently has a new division called “Tender Thoughts.” Actually, I don’t know how new it is, since I don’t keep up with the industry. And the one I received for my recent birthday doesn’t strike me as a terribly tender thought. But I really like it:

On your birthday, may the happiness and good times flow like boxed wine into a redneck’s coffee cup.

Man, that’s just beautiful. And funny.

But let it be known that I don’t drink my boxed wine in a coffee cup. BTW, Bota Box Old Vine Zinfandel is a great wine!

Hillary Clinton hasn’t decided on a name for her memoir yet. Lots of helpful suggestions have been posted on Twitter, and Twitchy has collected some of them.

Popehat explains why it’s (almost) never RICO

Posted by Richard on June 19, 2016

If you’re like me, you probably don’t know much about the Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) statute. You probably don’t think you need to, and you’re right (unless you’re one of those people who wants to use RICO for this, that, or the other thing that upsets you). And you undoubtedly think reading about RICO would be tedious, dull, and boring for anyone who isn’t a lawyer, and maybe even for them. Well, there you’d be wrong.

What if I told you that you could learn all about RICO and its uses and misuses while being thoroughly entertained and amused?

Don’t believe me? Check out Ken White’s marvelous Lawsplainer: IT’S NOT RICO, DAMMIT. I’ll accept your apology for doubting me when you’re done.

Awesome political commentary

Posted by Richard on January 10, 2015

Today’s Mallard Fillmore comic strip caricatures the Republican leadership almost perfectly. But check it out at Billlls Idle Mind; he points out the one small flaw. *snicker*

Hillary’s FB friends help her list accomplishments

Posted by Richard on April 24, 2014

Lots of people have been having a good laugh about the fact that neither Hillary Clinton nor a State Department spokesperson could come up with an answer when asked to name her accomplishments. But Herman Cain has come up with by far the funniest take on the issue. It’s a must-read, must-laugh, and might just bring tears to your eyes.

SNL lampoons Obama and Obamacare push

Posted by Richard on March 29, 2014

Saturday Night Live’s opening monologue lampooned Obama and the desperate attempts to sell Obamacare in the way that they used to lampoon Bush. It’s not uproariously funny, but it’s well worth watching. I’d embed it here, but instead I’m going to direct you to SNL Cold Open: How Far Will Obama Go To Sell Obamacare? Bieber Tongue Bath Far? Or Just Pope Pimpin’? by Caleb Howe. You can watch it there.

The alternative is to quote Howe’s comments in their entirety, because they’re really much more entertaining than the skit. Especially if you’re a “Once Upon a Time” fan.

Be sure to scroll on down and read Caleb Howe’s short biography. It’s pretty funny too.

Airport screening results

Posted by Richard on March 29, 2014

Like she said, hysterical.

UPDATE: To be fair, I should note that this overstates the number of members of Congress without balls by at least 33 — the 29 representatives and 4 senators who are members of the Liberty Caucus.

Dueling Gadsden humor

Posted by Richard on March 22, 2014

The folks at Organizing for America (OFA; formerly Obama for America), in an uncharacteristic moment of light-hearted humor, decided to have some fun with the iconic Gadsden flag frequently seen at Tea Party rallies:

Gadsden flag - OFA version

I’ve got to hand it to them, that’s pretty clever.

But the folks at the satirical “communist” site The People’s Cube thought it lacked something: honesty. Here’s their more truthful version:

Gadsden flag - People's Cube version

There, that fixed it. 🙂

For a good laugh, drop by The People’s Cube from time to time, if only for a quick check of “News we just don’t have time to write about,” which features gems like these:

The President’s latest talking point on Obamacare: “I didn’t build that”

Efforts to achieve moisture justice for California thwarted by unfair redistribution of snow in America

Putin annexes Brighton Beach to protect ethnic Russians in Brooklyn, Obama appeals to UN and EU for help
