Thank you. I’m always tickled when somebody picks up on my sarcasm.
Thank you !
I was wondering if someone would pick up on that. You are always perceptive.
@Richard S Russell ,
Your anecdote combines well with today’s comic arc to emphasize – on both sides of the political abyss – the Irish adage: " Never let the truth get in the way of a good story ! "
If the facts don’t suit your plan…throw ’em out and create new one ! First rule of Trumpian governance.
Hyperinflation has gotten so bad in Venezuela that Maduro’s economic brainiacs decided to introduce their own cryptocurrency called a “petro”. Nobody’s buying it !!
The PÓGUES were one of my favorite Irish Rock groups.
BTW… They shortened their name from Póg mo thóin ( which means “kiss my arse”, in Irish ). There’s also a tribute American/Irish band called the POGS but their not as good by half, as Shane MacGowan, and the original band.
Old joke retold with pretty good graphics…Yeah, I could go with an 8.5 !
