Featured image Ammo Grrrll has discovered FOUR PEOPLE MORE QUALIFIED FOR THEIR LUCRATIVE NEW JOBS THAN HUNTER BIDEN – altogether a PARODY divided into 4 parts. She writes: #1 Sean Spicer, fresh from what many called an “astonishing” run on Dancing with the Stars, has been tapped to choreograph and be principal dancer for the New York City Ballet Company! “For $80,000 a month, I think I can bring a fresh perspective »

Laughing at Schiff

Featured image Adam Schiff is back in the news in a big way. He’s about as funny as a rubber crutch, but it can’t be wrong to call a timeout to laugh at him. Tom Shillue has mastered the bizarreries of Schiff’s deportment in a manner that brings insight to impersonation. The compilation of Shillue clips below made me laugh out loud. It is the second of two such compilations on YouTube. »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll serves up a timely MEDITATION ON GRATITUDE, 2019. She writes: Yesterday, presumably, most of us ate beyond our fill of the traditional Thanksgiving fare. It is my favorite meal of the year. I particularly love stuffing – Heaven on earth! Whoever started the tradition of eating what is basically wet bread has a place in my heart forever. I tart my stuffing up with Cornbread, Hot Turkey Sausage, »

Fredo in free fall

Featured image In a hilarious footnote to Schiff impeachment theater, CNN’s Chris “Fredo” Cuomo conducted an on-air experiment to disprove President Trump’s doubt about the (brief) overheard phone call that somehow resulted in the 40-minute lecture on Ukraine policy by State Department official David Holmes. Video of the CNN segment is embedded in the tweet at the bottom. This, as they say, is CNN (in the age of Trump). The New York »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll reviews the HIGHLIGHT REEL OF THE END OF THE ROAD TRIP! She writes: One time in the Green Room of a Minneapolis comedy club, my colleague Sid came in from a round of golf. He was an excellent, almost-scratch golfer, a very smart guy, and funny comic. He said that a sudden squall had come up on the back 9 and he was almost hit by lightning. He »

Featured image Ms. AG is a HIGH-STRUNG GRRRLL ON A HIGH-STRESS ROAD TRIP. She writes: Okay. So, when last we left our brave if slightly anxious and forgetful columnist, she had just been stung by a scorpion, had somehow managed to acquire a couple of hours’ sleep, and was taking off by the dawn’s early light for Highway 10 East, hoping to reach Minnesota before it snowed. Remember, kids, it was still »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll reports the score as AMMO GRRRLL: 18, SCORPIONS: 1, but that 1 was a doozy. She writes: Well, I suppose if you live in Arizona long enough, it is bound to happen. On the last Friday in October, just as Mr. AG was putting steaks on the grill for dinner, I ran out of paper towels and went to the utility closet for a new roll. I picked »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll has a question: WHAT THE HECK! ANOTHER BIRTHDAY? She writes: Last month’s birthday wasn’t one of the “0” or “5” birthdays that we seem to think more significant. I’m just happy to still be here at 73. Two of my lifelong friends the same age are not. Most of you already wished me Happy Returns a couple of weeks ago, so I’m not angling for more good wishes. »

Who are you?

Featured image UK Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn is bad in so many ways it can warm your heart just to see him laughed at. That is the inference I draw from the video that I found on Twitter (below) and thought was current. Dating from 2016, it is still making the rounds because it remains relevant and entertaining. Wake up. Watch this again and again and happiness today is guaranteed. “ »

Psycho, WaPo style

Featured image The subsequently revised Washington Post headline over the obituary of the killin’ caliph is a headline that will live in infamy among those who follow the mainstream media with a gimlet eye. In the eyes of the Post, the maniacal murderer was an “austere religious scholar.” The Post headline aptly reflected the Trump derangement that has gripped the Post and its peers. If Trump had something to do with al-Baghdadi’s »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll has a few TRAVEL LESSONS. Let the cacchination commence. She writes: Democrats have achieved maximum lunacy (so far), so it’s time for another mental health break while we ponder how and why President Trump is making fat black women so fat. No, really. He has been “credibly accused” of that by a fat black woman. With a big fat Ph.D. If he can make unhinged Jewish women fat »

Featured image Don’t tell Anderson Cooper, but Ammo Grrrll points out: THAT IS A WHEELBARROW FULL OF MONEY!! She writes: Okay. I stipulate to the fact that geezers are always comparing the cost of things today with the prices (and values) of things when we were young, and I identify as a geezer. We used to make fun of Mama. “Yes, Mother, we realize that bread was a nickel, but you had »

Featured image I am conscious of my guilt in getting to Ammo Grrrll’s column this morning. Ammo Grrrll now aptly turns to CONSCIOUSNESS OF GUILT. She writes: Once, when I was a small child around 4, an idea came to me to cut two little round holes in my sheer white bedroom curtains. I didn’t say it was a GOOD idea. Apparently, it was not my first bad idea involving a scissors »

Not just a fake Indian!

Featured image When it suited her purposes in the world of academia, Elizabeth Warren absurdly presented herself as an American Indian, and it suited the purposes of academia to buy it. Running for the Democratic presidential nomination, Warren now poses as a former victim of benighted authorities who fired her from her first teaching job in 1971 because she was pregnant. She somehow overcame to become a Harvard law professor, though we »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll ponders RESISTANCE, RESILIENCE, & BATTLE FATIGUE. She writes: On my earliest report card, my kindergarten teacher had already spotted a pint-sized manic-depressive: “Little Susan is very easily elated or depressed,” she wrote in 1951. Luckily, most of the time I was – and still am – elated. In a manic phase, you wouldn’t even BELIEVE what can be accomplished, especially paired with a touch of OCD. So though »

Analyze this

Featured image Is there no end to the cruelty of the GOP? Now they are observing FlashbackFriday with the video (below) of someone I vaguely recognize as the pre-stomach reduction edition of Jerrold Nadler opining on the evils of impeachment. The man has shed a few pounds since the time of the video. He hasn’t shed an ounce of his sincerity. I hope it’s not wrong to laugh. I’m filing this under »

Featured image Ammo Grrrll has a few thoughts ABOUT LAST WEEK’S DISGRACE. Not this week’s, last week’s; we’re talking about ancient history. She writes: HEY, Remember the new Impeachable Crisis 3 or 4 Crises Ago? It’s hard to keep up with the Impeachment Crisis du Jour, but I kind of took a mental health break and now want to comment on this old one, because it’s so gosh-darn hilarious and right in »
