It's all boiling down to the Stooges Three
Trump and Kasich and Cruz;
It seems that the trick, to prevent getting sick
Is simply to turn off the News...
And wipe all the @#&$ off your shoes;
Then break out a liter of booze.
God knows we have all paid our dues...
From this media rape
It is time we escape
These dismal election-year blues,
Oh yeah, these dismal election-year blues!
Sure, nominations are rough
But enough is enough;
Why do Yanks drag this thing on so looooong?
What America needs most
Is a merciless host
To clear CNN's stage with a Gong !
HELP ME RONDA, HELP HELP ME RONDA
If you're a geek who's meek 'n mousy
Don't even look at Ronda Rousey.
Her eyes are feral, fierce like lasers
One punch is like a dozen Tasers.
So if you're some cowboy wit' a 7-year itch,
Ha! In 30 seconds you'll be her bitch.
A gal I know down South sent me a postcard the other day. It showed this photo of a sign-board with another insipid slogan -- you know the kind you see all over FaceBook and Google+ ; I call them "half-assed placards" -- and this one declared:
"My therapist set a glass half full of water in front of me and asked me, "Are you an optimist or a pessimist?" I told her, "No I am a problem solver. Then I drank the water down."
So I mailed the Southern lady back, returning her postcard, putting a blank mailing label over her caption. Then I wrote this new caption for the therapist:
"Better to pour that water over her head and say, "I'm a Republican. Welcome to trickle-down economics."
