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:
Happy birthday to DONALD TRUMP, who was 70 years old this week. The first thing he did this morning, he demanded to see his own birth certificate.
TRUMP may have turned 70, but his views about women are 150 years old.
They had a great party for DONALD with a beautiful cake. It was 50 stories high with condos, retail and parking. They even had a clown. It was DONALD himself.
When they brought in the cake, DONALD made a wish and blew out the candles, but HILLARY and OBAMA were still making speeches about him.
For the occasion TRUMP’S friends got together and said, “Wait! Why are we friends with DONALD TRUMP?”
TRUMP didn’t want a big party so he just invited a few close friends to comb over — I mean, COME over.
At the party they played some really fun games like, “Pin The Bad Economy On OBAMA.” “Bobbing For Terrorists” and “Musical Immigrants” — When the music stops out you go.
Speaking of immigrants, DONALD TRUMP has called for a ban on all immigration to the United States. That is unless he needs a new wife.
It was pretty hard getting TRUMP a gift. What do you get for the man who hates everything?
There was also another famous birthday this month. On June 9th O.J. turned 69 and celebrated with some friends in prison. They had a nice little party for him. Out of habit, after he cut the cake he hid the knife.
BERNIE SANDERS is still upset because he says his fund raising dinners didn’t raise as much money as HILLARY’S. I guess it’s tough to get the money crowd when your dinners are at 4:00 in the afternoon. An Early Bird Special.
One year ago last Thursday, DONALD TRUMP announced he was running for President as he rode down an escalator. And the Republican Party has been going down that escalator ever since.
It’s hard to believe it was only one year ago that Democrats were worried about JEB BUSH.
Sunday was Father’s Day. Since 1910, the 3rd Sunday in June has been set aside to honor dear old dad, keeper of the “Y Chromosome.” On this day we ply the Old Man with gifts, send him cards, buy him dinners and whatever else we can slap on his Visa or Mastercard.
Father’s Day is important because, besides being the day on which we honor dad, it’s the one day of the year that “Brookstone” does any business.
Happy Father’s Day to all you dads.
