Yes, it’s time to steal a few more jokes from my father-in-law (F.I.L.). His blog posts range from political comedy to humorous commentary on pop culture.
For those of you who might be new here, he used to write for Alan King, Milton Berle and Jonathan Winters, just to name a few. And all those Dean Martin Roasts, too: Don Rickles, Red Buttons, Phyllis Diller, Sammy Davis, Jr., etc.
A tiny respite from all the frustrating events of the day:
The GOP healthcare plan failed. Now they want to repeal Obamacare without a bill to replace it. Republicans did the same thing with the presidency. They got rid of OBAMA without a good plan to replace him
According to writer GARY MURPHY, “It was doomed to fail because it had MITCH McCONNELL as a preexisting condition.”
Republicans say they’re just going to let Obamacare fail while they regroup and figure out a new plan. And Democrats said, “Hey, that’s the same thing we’re doing with TRUMP.”
Special Counsel, ROBERT MUELLER, who is investigating TRUMP’S campaign relationship with the Russians, was threatened with getting fired if he looks into the PRESIDENT’S other business dealings. When we said TRUMP should act more presidential we probably should have specified — we didn’t mean NIXON.
The Emmy nominations are out and for “Best Actor” there’s KEVIN SPACEY for”House of Cards,” ANTHONY HOPKINS for “Westworld,” LIEV SCHREIBER for “Ray Donovan” and DONALD TRUMP for saying, “I will replace Obamacare with a plan that is bigger and better and cheaper than ever before.”
Last week O.J. SIMPSON was given parole after serving 9 years. We know he celebrated the occasion during his prison dinner, O.J. was overheard asking the guard, “What wine goes with slop?”
A lot of people didn’t know how to feel about the news. On one hand, O.J. is a convicted felon. On the other hand, he managed to keep TRUMP off TV for a whole afternoon.
According to an AMA study, deaths from prescription medicine errors in the U.S. rose 260 percent in 10 years. A startling 73 percent of senior citizen victims suffered fatal heart attacks while trying to open a “childproof” cap.
On the new TNT series, “Will,” we learn that WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE was a marijuana user and may have been high when he wrote some of his plays. Which explains why in WILL’S first draft the line read — “To be, or not to be — Who cares?”
PRESIDENT TRUMP’S immigration policy is still being blocked by a federal judge in Hawaii. TRUMP’S own grandfather would have had trouble coming to America. TRUMP is the grandson of German immigrants. But the PRESIDENT is confident things will work out. Afterall, the last time a German guy with funny hair took over a country everything turned out just fine.
