Our country is falling apart at the seams. Really, it is.
Today, while still being Columbus Day (although the White House hints, we don’t know for how much longer) is now also Indigenous Peoples’ Day. Now, don’t get me wrong…everybody else has a day or a month or whatever, unless of course you’re straight and white, so why not Native Americans? But, why the hell do you have to fuck with Columbus? It’s like they blame him personally for all the shit that fell down on the Native population that came after him.
Holding up signs that say, “Columbus didn’t discover anything. 1,000’s of Natives were already here!”
Yeah, I get it. Native Americans got a shitty deal. You know what? Human beings have been treating each other like shit since the invention of human beings! From slavery (and I don’t just mean black Africans because just about every fucking nation on earth has had slaves at one point in time or another) to abuse to genocide to … you name it, human beings have done horrible, atrocious things to one another. You can not name a single terrible thing in this world and there hasn’t been one group of people somewhere, sometime that hasn’t perpetrated that thing on another group of people.
So why do we keep picking these individual things out to keep apologizing for? Why is this one now the flavor of the day. Are we done apologizing now for slavery and moving on to how horrible the Indigenous Peoples’ were treated? Hey, I’ve got an awful lot of coal miners in my family tree, I’d really like to know when we’re going to get around to how poorly the Pennsylvania coalminers were treated in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. It’d be great if my family had a day, too! I’ve got some ideas for signs and I’d like to march somewhere, maybe burn down a CVS or something …
Do you people see how fucking stupid this all is?
HUMAN BEINGS TREAT EACH OTHER LIKE SHIT THROUGHOUT HISTORY!!!!
And so long as we keep bringing it up and celebrating it and bitching about it, it will keep happening. We need to get the fuck over it and move on and stop it and treat each other like we want to be treated and then MAYBE this shit will stop.
Personally, I think that Dragons have gotten a bad rap throughout history and I want to know who’s going to pay MY reparations?
Okay, so you’re 10 years old, you have a laptop, iPod, Facebook, and a blackberry …
Dude, when I was 10 I only had one thing to play with … It was called “OUTSIDE.”
A good way to get out of a conversation is to take off one of your socks and hand it to the person talking.
“Wait! I think it was one of the kids who overflowed the bathtub.”
This is what a Lenticular cloud over Mount Fuji looks like.

Part One … because I have so many of them today …
YES YOU FUCKING DO!
And I’m gonna keep posting it over and over and over again until everyone realizes he DOES work for us, he’s our fucking employee and his ass needs to be fired!
And then we wonder why it takes so long to get medical help when you go to the hospital.
When I questioned one of the higher-ups of our State Health Department about this miracle, she smiled and said that yes, it was an amazing thing that people social distancing, wearing masks, and using hand sanitizer had put such a huge hurting on the flu that it was as if it almost didn’t happen last year. I said, It’s not that the flu cases were counted as COVID cases? She turned red and said of course not! Uh huh.
Can you spell hypocritical twat?
And one more salvo fired in the Aussie Pete/Pete … conversation(?):
Well, there is only one Aussie Pete, he is enjoying the exposure. Laff on folks.
Sorry, just had to throw that one in there.
And this one from Dave really cracked me up!
Your picture reminded me of our son when he was 3 or4 years old. We were at the store and I put a pack of wooden spoons into the cart. Without any warning, about 30 seconds later, our son started crying. After a minute or two, we pulled him out of the cart and checked him over, suspecting he got pinched or cut. We finally got him settled down enough to talk. “Grammy uses one of them and I didn’t do anything this time”. We accidentally bought a whole bag of paddles.
You guys remembered the picture of the wooden spoon I threw in there for Pete and Aussie Pete, right? That’s what Dave is referring to in case you’ve forgotten. Thanks Dave, you cracked me up.
And an old one from Dave:
Poli = many
Tics = blood sucking parasites
A group of baboons is called a congress.
Who the hell do you call when it goes out? The plumber or the electrician? And what’s that gonna cost you?
I didn’t lose my mind
The people inside my head stole it and they won’t give it back
Okay, now we’ll do part 2
For this one and the next … like I said at the beginning, what do we have to do to just stop being assholes to each other?
How many of you have to fall off the side of the cliff before you discover that you’re a lemming?
I don’t understand Stupid People.
Maybe I should take one apart to see how it works.
And that’s it my friends. I hope you had a wonderful issue. I sure did. May your week be filled with fun and joy and love and happiness.
