“Last Blog Standing” starts riiight….now!

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:

After making insulting remarks about Mexicans, Macy’s has severed ties with DONALD TRUMP. They will no longer carry his men’s wear collection. From now on men, if you want to look like DONALD TRUMP, you’ll have go out and find your own “roadkill” to use as a hair piece.

NBC has officially canceled “Celebrity Apprentice.” DONALD TRUMP isn’t even President yet and he’s already made America a better place.

New Jersey Governor CHRIS CHRISTIE gave a 20-minute speech in his high school’s gymnasium to announce he’s running for President. By the way, 20 minutes is the longest period of time CHRISTIE has spent in a gym since he was twelve.

The Supreme Court has ended a ban on same-sex marriage. Now in every state in the Union, even if you’re gay you can get married and be together forever and ever and ever. Remember when the word “gay” meant happy? Well, thanks to the Supreme Court it doesn’t anymore.

Last week for the first time in 24 years Jupiter and Venus appeared almost on top of each other. So the gay marriage ruling is having more of an impact than we thought.

As far as the World Cup is concerned, Germany was really upset at losing to the U.S. team. But German fans not to worry. It’s on to Poland, Austria, and Czechoslovakia.

There’s a huge financial crisis in Greece. The country is in ruins. But isn’t ruins what Greece is all about?

This is the beginning of the “Dog Days” (July 3rd to August 15th) To the superstitious these super hot days are believed to be an evil time when wolves go mad, the sea boils over and all creatures go into paroxysms of hysteria and madness – But enough about the Republicans reaction to the Supreme Court’s ruling on Obamacare, let’s talk about the weather.

Discovery Channel’s “Naked And Afraid” has been a hit for over a year, but on last week’s show the couple was stranded on an island that was so dangerous and so difficult to survive on, that at one point the tide went out and refused to come back.
