Laughs are in short supply these days, so I savor every one that comes my way.
I’m still snickering at Pr*sident Donald J. tRump paying $3 million for a recount in 2 Wisconsin Counties. As of Friday, he’s given Joe Biden an additional 132 vote margin in Milwaukee County, where I voted absentee. The results in Dane County (Madison) are
expected early this week and are likely to add to the Biden margin of victory now in and Joe Biden gets an additional 87 votes to his margin of victory once the statewide total is adjusted.
Bwahahaha! That’s what you get when you specify recounts in the 2 largest counties that voted overwhelmingly for Biden! And that’s what I get for writing this at 8AM when the mood struck.

Recounts in Wisconsin, by statute, must be paid for UP FRONT (no credit, no bill, no opportunity for Don the Con to renege on paying). Thanks for the money, sucker. Creditors at his campaign rally sites might not be so lucky. He’s got a long, long history of stiffing his employees, vendors, and contractors.
I’m sure they’re not done with the election reality show melodrama and expect tRump to file absurd lawsuits further challenging the results. Considering that the other lawsuits suffered a rapid demise (or been laughed out of court) across the land, I expect to chuckle at whatever pathetic attempt he makes here.
January 20th can’t come soon enough and I hope security checks all the tRump luggage and moving boxes for precious national treasures like those Remington bronzes that would be ever so easy for the unscrupulous to pocket on moving day. Count the silverware, too.
Other laughs have come via the ridiculous incompetence of Rudy Giuliani: the hilarious event held at the Four Seasons (Landscaping Company’s back door), the Hair Dye Coup presser where Rudy literally melted like the Wicked Witch in front of the cameras, as well as his fumbling attempts to ‘splain what he was really doing in the bedroom of that recent Borat film.
There will be many, many more and I look forward to them all.
Other laughs have come from the daily You Tube videos from Keith Olbermann who I still miss on MSNBC. His verbal elegance, sharp wit, and bullseye jabs are never to be missed. His real talent is wasted doing sports. Here’s a taste:
And then there are the funny comment threads around here that should be submitted to Top Comments so they get wider viewership. And the comments on all those spam diaries that still get posted. Kudos to all those rock crusher references.
And now, this: The monolith in Utah has disappeared! Oh noes! Cue Rod Serling and the Twilight Zone. Also every conspiracy theorist in sight. Perhaps we should check the sky for UFOs and aliens?
Nope, it was a totally human assembled piece of aluminum that was already missing a couple of rivets according to the folks who found it while counting Big Horned sheep from a helicopter.
It was fun while it lasted and might be more fun now it’s gone.
OK, everyone. Please share your laughs in the comments. Please. We need them.
