This joke originated with Bill Cosby albeit he used “grandkids and grandparents” instead of “Grampas and grandsons” and “enemy” instead of “foe.” Must be throwback Thursday in the comics.
A 50/50 split in the Senate with the filibuster rule in place plus a razor thin majority in the house pretty much ensure that any Democrat proposed legislation has scant chance of success. Some parts of the progressive agenda are supported by a majority of American voters. The Democrats’ legislative agenda should be to propose bills that are supported by that majority and then let the Republicans face explaining to those voters why they vote no. There is no window of opportunity to pass the entire progressive agenda so putting it all into one or two bills ensures that nothing will change. Does: “We have met the enemy and it is us,” resonate?
Maybe “favored” or “patronized” is what is meant.
Nate and his buddies are stuck in the 7th grade every school year while others apparently move on. That makes a lot of sense. Not.
Great football player but a gold mine for opposition researchers. He’ll be ground up and spit out in the process. Albeit the same was said of Donald Trump before he ran for president so nothing is a given.
This is 2021. Is it unreasonable to think that she would be responsible for saving herself and not have to rely on Brad given their respective professions?
He who would be king.
Bringing squirt guns to school was a thing on the last day of my senior year of high school. Typical junvenile pranksterism. A car full of us got the bright idea of ambushing one of our first year teachers as he was walking into his apartment building. It was 1964 and a lot of things were different then. We popped out of the car and began spraying him with water. He turned and sprayed us from a squirt gun he had confiscated from a student earlier in the day. The difference was that his was loaded with some cheap, obnoxious smelling perfume. Teacher 1, Students 0.
That looks like a steak cut rather than corned beef. Our chunk of corned beef is in the slow cooker at this minute. It will cook down quite a bit but there will be leftovers for Reubens and so on. It seems to go pretty quickly each year. My only regret is that the whole cut of corned beef seems to be a seasonal item. My mom would use a smoked Boston butt ham in place of the corned beef in our boiled dinners after March as it was easier to find in the grocery store. That was in the 50s and 60s can’t even find a smoked Boston butt ham today. The leftover ham would be ground up and made into ham salad. A favorite sandwich for my wife.
I believe a joke that takes this much explaining is a bit too much an inside one for a comic strip. I don’t get it either.
