If genies were Southern . . .

. you’d get something like this. The genie of the gravy boat . . . does it matter if it’s been used for brown gravy or country gravy?  With or without mushrooms?  Does one get a better quality of wish with sausage chunks in it?  And if the genie really can’t fulfill your wish, does he simply say, “Well, bless your heart!”?

The snark, it burns . . . !

Readers will doubtless recall Democratic Party presidential candidate Joe Biden’s mixed-up, confused harangue about assault weapons a few days ago.  Amongst other errors and inanities, he mis-identified the commonly available AR-15 rifle as the AR-14 – a weapon designation that doesn’t exist.

While some love his piece,

Presidential hopeful Michael Bloomberg is in hot water over some comments he made on agriculture back in 2016. Perhaps the best response comes from cartoonist Gary Varvel, in an image that’s already gone viral.  (Clickit to biggit.) I love it!  Kudos to Mr. Varvel for perfectly capturing the inane insanity of the cocooned world of technology, trying to talk to the real world outside its air-conditioned buildings.  What’s more, using the charging bull statue on Wall Street as his model was a stroke of inspired genius!  So much for money in politics . . .
