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:
Call me old-fashioned, but what I love best about the 4th of July is all the flags. They’re all made in China, but still it’s the sentiment.
Fourth of July, of course, is when we celebrate our independence from the British. Or as it is now called, the original “BREXIT.”
After this week, it’s starting to look like England just can’t keep a relationship going.
If DONALD TRUMP has his way (God forbid), next year we’ll be celebrating our independence from the Chinese.
Critics are calling those in Britain who voted to pull out of the European Union “racist” and “anti-immigrant.” After hearing this, DONALD TRUMP said, “Wow, I’m running for leader of the wrong country.”
According to the latest poll, TRUMP and CLINTON almost are tied. This is the first tie for DONALD that wasn’t manufactured in China.
This week PRESIDENT OBAMA met with the leaders of Mexico and Canada. OBAMA said he’s trying to figure out where to live if TRUMP wins.
Volkswagen’s settlement for its emissions cheating scandal is going to cost it nearly 15 billion dollars. A spokesperson for Volkswagen said, “We’ve never been so embarrassed — and we were founded by HITLER.”
At the London Olympics in 2012, they handed out 100,000 condoms. This year in Rio they are planning to give away 150,000. That’s 100,000 for the U.S. basketball team and 50,000 for everyone else.
For the first time ever the Miss America Pageant is going to have a bisexual contestant, Miss North AND South Dakota.
It’s hard to believe that there are only seven months left in the OBAMA Presidency. A lot of people are wondering what BARACK OBAMA will do after he’s president. I read today that he is thinking about becoming a venture capitalist. Here are some businesses that might interest him.
–A “Big and Tall” men’s shop in Japan.
–He could put some money into a new sport franchise. “Nude Fencing.”
–Then there’s the “Mike Tyson Charm School.”
–Or a company in Australia that manufactures “Boomerang Doggie Bones.” For dogs too lazy to fetch.
Here’s the most promising:
–A new Camembert and Brie factory in Israel. To be called “Cheeses of Nazareth.”
Whatever he does we wish him “good luck” — He earned it.
