Well, Imperial Storm Troopers couldn’t shoot for shit either, so…  We all have our burdens to bear…

So that’s where they all went…

So that’s why they raided Melania’s closet…

When you’re used to creating your own reality…

Well, if you’re remotely educated, yeah…

Like Climate Change, what doesn’t it do?

That explains a lot…

So does that…

So does that…

The world melts down at the molecular level…

That’s what I kept telling my students…

I’d wondered about that…

Of course he did…

Yup…

Then there’s hay everywhere…

They always need a bigger hoax…

Making the galaxy great again…

I guess we don’t trust potatoes much either…

This one’s going straight to streaming…

Tell that to the wokesters…

I think we’ll start with Simon Jenkins…

Also going straight to streaming…

Must be a capital crime…

California: doing it to itself, gooder and harder…

Well, there’s that…

I wondered who that was…

It was inevitable…

Stunning insights department…

And in the just because it’s cute department: good dog!

Awwwwww.

 If you haven’t already, consider buying a copy of License To Kill. If you’re interested in how the police get it wrong, there is no better primer.

If you get the book directly through the publisher, I’ll make a few cents more than if you get it at Amazon. It’s $17.99 at either source, and Amazon has a $4.99 Kindle edition.  Positive comments on Amazon about LTK would be great too.  Go here to comment.

And now, more humor from Richard Lederer’s classic book The Revenge Of Anguished English, which is a collection of accidentally funny things people have written.  This week, student writing bloopers:

“Edgar Allan Poe’s single-effect theory is that everything in the story contributes to one main idea and that the story should be short enough to be read in a single shitting.”

“The election of President Lincoln caused the South to recede.”

“Harriet Beecher Stowe wrote Uncle Ben’s Cabin.”

“An Indian woman squatted over a fire in one teepee, and you could smell fresh meat cooking.”

“The President is elected by the Electrical College.”

“Someone who runs for an office he already holds is called an incompetent.”

These days we need humor more than ever.  I’ll see you next Sunday, and I hope, every other day too!
