RJ May or May Not Have a Tumor

oh160222See, Verne can hold his own occasionally.  Sporadically. Sometimes. Almost never.

Over the Hedge

Pretty sure this is a rerun. Mostly because I bought a new receiver about two years ago. But then again I can’t remember what I wrote last week. So who knows?

How Many Stars in the Sky?

oh160220Assorted punctuation (with a Saturn or two) is always funny. And interactive. YOU, dear reader, provide the curse word.

Independence Day: Regurgitation

oh160219You know how Trump gets Mexico to pay for the wall? He slaps a 40% tariff on goods out of Mexico. Of course the result of that is that trade with Mexico plummets (after the Mexican’s retaliate with their own tariff) and the proceeds from the tariff slow to a trickle. Meanwhile American consumers pay more for goods and services they used to get cheaper from Mexico.

Free trade is ugly, destabilizing and clearly hurts some American workers who can’t compete with cheap foreign labor. But it’s infinitely better than the high tariff alternative.

You know how Trump gets Mexico to pay for the wall?

He doesn’t.

Jimmy Olsen, RIP

oh160217It has always amazed me that Jimmy and Lois never figure out that Clark Kent and Superman are the same person. It’s not like Superman wears a mask. And don’t tell me the glasses are any kind of disguise. You have to wonder about an entire franchise based on the main characters being selectively blind.

Or reliably stupid.

How Batman Might TRY to Beat Superman

oh160216I realize that Batman and Superman have battled in the comic books.  Usually, Batman uses some sort of kryptonite weapon to weaken Superman (and he has superior tactics). But still, the premise is ridiculous. First, they should be allies, not enemies. Second, WTF, it’s Superman!  He’s made of steel! He flies!  He flies FAST! He ?#$$!! once slowed the Earth’s orbit!
