The Week in Pictures: The Last Straw Man Edition

The Democrats’ ban on plastic straws is the gift that keeps on giving GIFs—or at least memes. I can’t decide whether it was Nietzsche or T.S. Eliot who got it wrong. If Nietzsche were with us today, he’d surely issue a correction—”No, I said the last straw man!” And Eliot would have to re-write “The Hollow Men.” Even though the title is perfect for modern liberals, the lines need revision: “We are the hollow [liberal] men [optional gender ID here]/We are the stuffed men [optional gender ID here]/Leaning together/Headpiece filled with [plastic] straw[s]/Our dried [Pelosi] voices/When we whisper [shout] together/Are [not] quiet [but certainly] meaningless/That’s for darn sure.”

Definitely need this. Wouldn’t want to use the wrong fork. That’s how Episcopalians get sent to Hell.
