Absolutely hilarious. Every time Steyer talked during the debate this is all I could think of.

I use ZenMate VPN. It's free. Speed is capped in the free version but otherwise it is fantastic.

Ktb, thanks for the recommendation, but i'm very skeptical about VPNs. They are yet another instance i would have to trust not to make my browsing history a business model.

The fact it is free is almost the guarantee they sell your data. What else would their business model be?

Maybe they are no business. See e.g. wikipedia

"It is preoccupation with what other people from your groups think of you, that prevents you from living freely and nobly" - Nanning

A little general hint:

Never take a serious stance against a joke, else the joke loses it's being funny

We all know that doctors and nurses and many others are working, hence no need to emphasize.

Other than that most of us know that horoscopes are often written in a way that they always fit and this joke simply is pulling such and yellow press horoscope's leg.

To put a context to HapHazard's post:

"Buzz Killington (voiced by Danny Smith) – A man who dresses and acts as if he is a 19th-century British man of means. His name is based on the term "buzzkill". He is a stereotype of a socially popular person in the late 19th century[citation needed], but by today's standard would be regarded as a "buzzkill". He is typically introduced into otherwise fun situations, such as a wild party, but his contributions (showing etchings, telling stories) bring the party (and fun) to a grinding halt."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Family_Guy_characters#Buzz_Killington

What party or fun situation are you referring to?
"It is preoccupation with possessions, more than anything else, that prevents us from living freely and nobly" - Bertrand Russell
"It is preoccupation with what other people from your groups think of you, that prevents you from living freely and nobly" - Nanning

Is Dr. Didier Raoult (of COVID-19 miracle drug hydroxychloroquine fame) a body double of Trump doc Harold Bornstein? They even have the almost same shirt:

They also look like Jean Pierre van Rossem lightweight versions (h/t kassy)

While President Trump is traveling in Jerusalem, he suffers a heart attack and dies. 

The undertaker tells the American diplomats, "You can have him sent home for $50,000 or you can bury him here in the Holy Land for $100.

The American diplomats discuss it and soon they are back at the funeral home.  They want Donald Trump sent home. 

The undertaker asks, "Why would you want to spend $50,000 to send him home when it's great to be buried here for only $100? 

The American diplomats answer: 'Once upon a time another man has died and was buried here and three days later he rose from the dead. 

We just can't take the risk...'

Consistency


Monday morning on the White House lawn. The Pres is getting ready to be interviewed by the fake press before taking the chopper to the next golf course in peril of being underplayed. Test less and acknowledge nothing real. Routine routine.

´So why did you decide to pull back all troops and desolve the army?´

Sometimes you just don´t know what to tweet and then the fake hoax witch hunt kicks in. Well trained reflexes are a boon. With that tell tale itch in the ankle you retreat back into the White House.

Check the tweets. Nothing about desolving the army there. Funny how misspellings are clearer the day after. Clearly this is some management fuck up relating to the real world. Good for lawyers. Shout at some lackey about it. Lackey suggests actually phoning the people running the army. He might make a decent caddy.

Call army people (ours).

TP: I am the president get me the guy who is running my army.
General More: Hello mister president. Could you please give us more dollars we need really big ships.
TP: Why do you need more dollars if  you are desolving the army?
GM: I am just acting on the White Paper the White House Pushed out last year.  The one on ´How Florida won the war on climate and how we can win the war on everyone´
TP: I might push white stuff but not paper. What did the Mar-A-Lago state do anyway?
GM: It was a stroke of genius.
TP: I like to avoid strokes..or some types, some are good.
GM: Well they banned sea level rise and global warming and as soon as they did that there was no more evidence of either. We scoured the reports. We tested it but this works.
TP: Great. This extrapolates to finance?
GM: No idea, i always just ask for more and get it.
TP: So how does this disolving the army work?
GM: Same principle. We looked though all our plans and then banned enemies and threats etc. It immediately freed up a ton of money. I have some cool pictures of hardware to spend that on.
TP: How is that AI caddy thing performing now?

This is a work of satire which has no relation to the real world because satire is a free form art.
Also dedicated to occams razor, too bad about Gillette. (no payments yet for the latter just testing the waters).

Whatever happened to Covid jokes? There have been a few in the beginning. There was the one with the Borg queen wanting to assimilate mankind and when she realizes there is a pandemic going on she is like'oops, nevernind'. Or the one with Chuck Norris who had the virus and now the virus is in quarantine. But i've heard no new ones.

“There are three classes of people: those who see. Those who see when they are shown. Those who do not see.” ― Leonardo da Vinci

Insensible before the wave so soon released by callous fate. Affected most, they understand the least, and understanding, when it comes, invariably arrives too late
