Awful Puns, Related Trivia, Political Rants, and Some Good Ideas

Mike has been on a roll lately, having found an evidently bottomless well of hideous puns. If you haven't had the opportunity to groan in agony over them, you can do so here and here. Come back when you're done throwing up.

Back again? Good, because why should Mike have all the fun? I was going to save this horrible pun for tomorrow's Cartoon Saturday, but I figured we all needed something besides Congress to groan at this morning:

Now, Dear Readers, it occurs to me that some of you may not be of an age to understand just how horrible this pun is. For you (and for me, because it's one of my favorites), here is the reference ...

You may also recall our discussion of Zip Codes from earlier this month, which will help you make sense of the part of the lyrics which goes,

Return to sender, address unknown.
No such person, no such zone.

Postal zones, of course, being the precursors of Zip Codes, which were what we used before we had Zip+4. Which you knew if you read my earlier post.

Okay, enough of all that.

I just can't let a day go by without the political rant you've come to expect. Here are two great cartoons that need no further explanation ...


Finally, here's an article that is well worth your reading as Congress lets the economy spiral down the drain: How to Turn Republicans and Democrats Into Americans.

That's all. Have a good day. Come back tomorrow for Cartoon Saturday. More thoughts then.

There have been a bunch of good pun toons lately. When I saw the MG&G one I thought I should have been saving them all.

I have to let Aaron read that cheese blender one. Return to Sender is one of his favorite songs!
