"Am I a good mother" made me chuckle.

The Blockbuster ID made me smile, too.

Crankshaft obviously now faces a dilemma.

Shall he pluck out at random ten pills a day from this huge bundle of flug- and dust- and bug-poo-contaminated, unsorted pharmaceuticals, or take the cop's tip and go peddle these 'scrips at the high school (or on the bus - he still drives in this strip, right?) - where he can surely score enough money to buy more pills to get "lost" under the fridge....

Swiped the Johnny Optimism strip and quote for Other People's Stuff, because, Quatro du Sanka. Ole. Okay?

Reading the list aloud to Milady as she braids her hair...

"When you turn out the light and go to bed, everything in your bedroom will still be clearly visible, just slightly bluish."

Milady: Yeah, that's 'cause you left the TV on.

Funniest thing about this list is how many of those things I've seen in just the past week or two!

"If you decide to start dancing in the street, everyone you bump into will know all the steps."

There has never been a better use of this than the spectacular Central Park mob dance scene in Enchanted. Not only was it a hilarious scene, but also, because the gal had "cartoon magic," so everyone joining in was perfectly reasonable in the context of the story - much to the distress of the guy.

Dishes, Netflix, Facebook, health and family, blah blah… You really need to prioritize. Fight through the pain and clear the calendar: we need more chrissy fix at PoliNation!!

Seriously, appreciate your sharing your news, hard or good. And it is always good to see a cth post. Did you say seventh grandchild? That's so cool. Having siblings and cousins is cool. ♥

Pete: a gathering of bottom feeding, miserable smut mongers with no compassion for anyone who doesn't belong to their clique

I ♥ you, Pete. That's pure poetry.

Thanks for the Trump in Michigan vids. That guy, Trump. He's sort-a grown on me. :)

Dennis: I don’t hear him, neighbor George told the worried father, while holding a shovel covered with fresh dirt and blood. But he did hear, barely, the child’s muffled screams…

Hanky Code? Filed under: Things I really don’t need to know except to avoid doing, like flashing gang signs or wearing gang colors or having a wide stance. Thanks

I was just reading on that other blog :) that they dined of the plates the Clintons tried to steal.

Overall cost of state dinner: ~$800,000
Melania's dress: ~$3,000
Eating food off of Clinton-returned plates: priceless.

(I made the numbers up.)

You can take the grifters out of the trailer park, but you can never take the trailer park out of the grifters.

An unusually positive and even some chuckleworthy post. Thanks.

O’course, any post that starts off with a big dose of Melania is great.

I was wondering – that great gold-trimmed layout for the dinner – is that White House wares or something the Trumps keep around for dinner parties of 150 or so? Beautiful stuff.

But did you notice that Macron’s mother wife’s outfit matched the tablecloths?

A commenter elsewhere: “the last time the WH hosted a state dinner for the President of France was in 2014. The entertainment provided by Moochelle? Mary J Blige. Melania’s choice of entertainment? Washington Metropolitan Opera. The difference in taste and culture is apparent.” In this and everything else, I’d add!

Another commenter elsewhere (I have no worthwhile thoughts of my own, but I can cut & paste):

So nice to see the WH return to old-fashioned, candlelit state dinners in the State Dining Room (holds 140) after the Obamas’ tacky, colored-floodlight spectacles in the East Room (holds over 300.)

The cost of state dinners, paid for by the State Dept., ran about $250,000 to 300,000 (in constant 2000 dollars) from the time of Reagan through Bush43.

Then came Barky, whose average expenditure was over a million. That average doesn’t include the $3,000,000 extravaganza he threw for Mexico, where the guests were served in floored and heated tents on the South Lawn, having been conveyed there on a little train.
And let us not discuss the cost of staging a big show by Beyonce, who as we know epitomizes class.

Oh, I see that the Trumps had a program by the National Opera featuring works by French and US composers.

Now I want the Nevertrumper Countryclubbers to STFU.

Bird funnies!

Ace of Spades blog's Wednesday morning art post had a painting with a parrot in it, inspiring much avian discussion.

Example #1, of which the first cartoon (just busted out) reminded me, from commenter The Great White Scotsman:

Our African Grey Parrot Sarah could form simple 4 or 5 word sentences out of vocabulary that she already knew.

The wife and I were sitting on the couch one day when Sarah was locked in her cage and said "Can I come out now?" We were literally shocked and had to reassure each other that we had actually heard what she had asked as she had never put those words together in a sentence before.

Example #2, this slightly Not Safe for the Whole Family joke swiped from commenter Grump928(C):

A woman went to a pet shop and immediately spotted a large beautiful parrot. There was a sign on the cage that said $50.00. "Why so little?" she asked the pet store owner. The owner looked at her and said: "Look, I should tell you first that this bird used to live in a brothel, and sometimes it says some pretty vulgar things."

The woman thought about this, but decided she wanted the bird anyway. She took it home, hung its cage in her living room and waited for it to say something. The bird looked around the room, then at her, and said: "New house, new madam." The woman was a bit shocked at the implication, but then thought: "that's not so bad."

When her two teenage daughters returned from school. The bird saw them and said, "New house, new madam, new girls."

The girls and the woman were a bit offended, but then began to laugh about the situation.

Moments later, the woman's husband came home from work.

The bird looked at him and said: "Hi Bob".

How’s Your Day So Far?

Well, I've been to the dentist and got two holes drilled & filled. Still numb.

Aren't you glad you asked?
My financial status: I just rinsed off a paper plate.
You're just supposed to scrape them. They wear out faster if you get them wet.
The older we get, the less "life in prison" is a deterrent.

Hmmmm. Now that you mention it…

Film Blackhawks? First I'd heard of this. Thought the first Capt America did a pretty good Howling Commandos, including the Jap guy "I'm an American!" Heh. (Missed the old cigar-chomping Sgt. Fury, though, conspicuous by his absence.)

That Spidey in chains, reeeal familiar. Musta been from 'way back when I were a comics fan.

I really sympathize with the cars clobbered by trees. Had a 100-year-old oak with two great forks fall, one fork then later another, both of them almost falling on my truck, but fortunately just a few dents as branches arrayed in front of and behind but not on top of the truck.

Whew times two.

Rambling recounting of that, plus pictures.

The rusted-out truck with a tree growing up through it? We've got one of those right here at the ranch. Most amusing to realize what a long-term project it's been.

These big multi-story covers always take me back to my yout' and the real thing. Nice work. Congratulations on another milestone.

Illinois Senate considering bill to give kids access to medical pot at schools

I suspect the kids would be discouraged if they had to trade down to legal pot. ;)

"My husband says our marriage lacks spark"

A shocking story that's around the web: man buys taser for wife

"First Dodge Ram" - We're talking goatpower, not horsepower.


Toyota giving birth to Mustang? Some breeding program!

ET didn't go home - the really, really sad part about this is presuming that the photo wasn't manipulated.
