More Monday Madness

 

(My kids will tell you – and so can I- that my title is "alliteration" – a word on last week’s English test. . . those education dollars at work) 

I didn’t have to work on the farm this weekend.  We had some friends over, and the husband went out and did what I normally would be doing (digging a trench for a faucet by the barn and piecing together water pipe – skinny stuff . . . a one-man job).  Prince Farming was on the borrowed excavator digging a trench from a water source (broken pipe in the field) to the old barn for the water pipe to rest in (and not freeze during the winter).   So I feel really blessed, and amazingly rested.  And without a funny story for your reading pleasure.

Last Monday I shared a post about despair.  For some reason my humor is sort of leaning toward the political genre, which is odd because politics and me just aren’t that close.  I’m not a US citizen (nor am I here illegally, if you’re wondering ).  I have a hard time following what’s going on and giving any kind of intelligent analysis.  Actually – I probably have a hard time giving intelligent analysis anywhere in my life, but that’s a whole ‘nother post.  Maybe it’s just that politics is the primary topic every time I turn on the radio.  But every week I get this little video podcast that makes me smirk, or giggle, or laugh out loud, or sigh with a "I wish I could have thought that out and said it first."  And sometimes, no matter how simplified it is, I just don’t get it.  Or it doesn’t strike me all that funny.  Which is okay too.  Helping little minds understand big things, Uncle Jay has a great way ‘splaining things and I thought maybe you’d enjoy hearing a couple of my favorites.  I would hazard a guess that it isn’t so much the politics that strike me as funny as the irreverence does. That’s probably more like it.

I haven’t watched this week’s video cast yet.  But with everyone talking about the financial mayhem that we find ourselves in, I thought it would be appropriate to share a simplified version of what’s going on.  Check this out.

Another one that is fairly popular (by vote of most clicks) is the congressional recess episode.  It’s pretty funny too.

Hope you have a great week!

    Going to go and listen.

    Wondering where you’re from. Could it be Canada? There’s an election going on up here too. I’m a little miffed that the media only seems to spend much time on the different parties when there’s an election afoot. Wish everyone was more educated day to day. Then maybe we would be an intelligent government for a change.

    I have no sound (or don’t know how to use it) on this computer, which is not mine.

    I hate politics. I listen to a radio station that has almost none on it, and I don’t watch TV. I get angry, really angry when I see/hear much at all. I’m visiting relatives, and they’re TV is on more than mine. (It means theirs is ON, whereas mine is NOT.) Makes me crazy. I’ve seen a few ads for both presidential candidates, and have seen neither one telling me why THEY are good, but why the OTHER is bad. So not into that. I went outside for a couple of hours and looked at THIS farm. (With no chickens, but definitely donkeys. Which by the way, are my dad’s. And he sort of wants to get rid of them. But he loans his pasture to a neighbor who is BEGGING him to keep them because they keep the coyotes away. No shoeing of donkey hoofs/hooves? going on here. There is no way that would happen.)
