I love humour.  My grandson is a natural. When sprayed with ketchup, while filling the paper cup at a Midwest greasy burger joint, he shot himself in the eye.  "I'm blind, I can't see" he wailed (as only a 5 year old can do).  Being the supportive family we are, a bathroom run for running water was in order.  When he returned, eyes still closed, with great effort, I managed to say, "Open your eyes".  It's become a family memory oft repeated.

Grandson refuses to create a sock puppet to share his thoughts on this site when he visits. I'd like to create one for him.  Is that against the rules?  Probably so...OK, I'll do my best to share with you.


Recently, my dreams returned me to a 6th grade literature class.  (Yes, young ones, literature was a real subject in the old days of public school funding.)  We were tasked to write a 1,000 word essay, poem, or comedy then translate it into a 5 minute performance. I was terrified.  Comedy was my best option.  Laugh at me or with me, seemed like a winner, and win we did.  Most left the assembly in tears of silly laughter, including the teachers.

OK, below you will find my grandson's take on why we should laugh about political "thingies".

He likes Yves from Naked Capitalism.

I’m not sure if adap2k is really a former Democrat, but it is fun (gallow's humor) reading someone who includes Glen Beck, and NWO (New World Order) conspiracy theories while making this claim.

Grandson asked me if I had $5 to move the polls, lol.

Mittens has a 68.6% chance for GOP nomination
President Obama at 49.8% chance of 2012 win

He closed the deal by asking if I reallybelieved Mr. Soros was a liberal.

I had some time to catch up on the latest Soros saga. What's with this media claim  that he dumped the Brazilian beauty for a profit on a prime piece of real estate. (snark)

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
