Vlad Needs a Nappy ~ Quick Limerick

`

With each Doomsday Clock’s tick, Vlad grows madder
He woos World War III, there’s NOTHING sadder
His territorial pissing
Within Ukraine is not missing
Who’ll nappy Vlad, who can’t rule his own bladder?

Defy Idiots, Ideologues and Wackos

`

The global pandemic will rage on, endlessly, until everyone fully accepts the time honored science; totally lives by the indisputable truth that, be one vaxxed or unvaxxed, people can be both Covid-19 infected and asymptomatic.

As such, we humans are fully capable of unknowingly shedding and spreading the bat crap crazy, communicable coronavirus and its ever-evolving variants throughout our mobile, global society.

In other words… vaxxing up, quite simply, will NEVER be enough. If we expect to fully eradicate this godforsaken virus, anytime soon, we will absolutely need to mask up whenever we’re within any public, indoor setting.

That it’s even necessary to point that out, more than two years into this deadly and debilitating public health crisis, amply demonstrates how our empowered national, state and local representatives have been utterly failing to represent our best interests.

Regardless of political stripe, they’ve been caving into political and economic pressures; i.e., to the ceaseless demands of anti-masker idiots, ideologues and wackos, who don’t give a flying F about the health and well-being of anyone.

Stateside, stunningly so, it’s now even doubtful that we can still depend on President Joe Biden to live up to his pledge to set the pandemic safety protocols based upon scientific facts NOT political fiction.

In other words…

  • We, who actualy give a damn about humanity, have been utterly abandoned and, as such, it’s totally up to us to lead the way to a brighter day.
  • Working towards that end… correction… working towards that new beginning, it is now totally up to us, alone, to flat-out defy anyone moronic and/or malicious and/or maniacal enough to FOOLISHLY and PREMATURELY recommend going maskless.

In other words…

2-22-22 @ 2:22:22 ~ Quick Limerick

`

To say the least… this post’s entire point is its 2-22-22 2:22 p.m. (EST) WP Timestamp.

To say the most… obviously, I haven’t been getting around that much, for I’ve not had this much “fun” since…

1-11-11 @ 1:11:11 p.m.

Uh, as an afterthought… I’ve composed the following lame limerick, too…

`

I really need to find more stuff to do
‘Cause today’s limerick message to you
Is calendars’ year, month and day
And the three clock hands all say
That the 10 digits all boil down to “2”

Artifice v. Artfulness

`

Speaking of the English language, it’s not all that surprising to discover how the exact same word can “sport” worlds apart connotations.

What better, more timely way to showcase this “war of the words” than a tie-in with the 2022 Winter Olympic Games.

To flesh that out a bit more, let’s discuss the problematic issue of “unjuiced” v. “juiced” Olympians.

  • Honest athletes’ artful performances sport a sheen; as if they’ve been VARNISHED.
  • Cheaters’ performances actually are more about artifice; i.e., the VARNISHED truth.
  • Honest athletes typically medal when their performances are winsomely GARNISHED.
  • Frauds, who medal/eventually get outed (rightfully so) have their medals GARNISHED.

That duly noted, let’s check out one final word that’d be tough to pretty up:

TARNISHED

To demonstrate that key T-word’s much needed, long overdue (practical) application, let’s award not one, but two TARNISHED lead medals to…

  • The International Olympic Committee (IOC) for not consistently enforcing their anti-doping / level playing field rule; i.e., for their utter failure to disqualify each and every pharmaceutical fraud.
  • Again, to the IOC, for denying the winning, legitimate athletes their Thrill of a Lifetime; i.e., to be standing atop the world stage; to be awarded their Gold, Silver and Bronze medals; to ear-witness the ambient, aural mix; the swell of their national anthems and the audience’s adulation and applause.

Winter of My Discontent

`

Well, idk if the word “normal” comes into play when describing Michigan’s winter weather events, these past 48 hours, BUT, the prognostications of high wind, torrential rain and major snowfall / freeze yer butt off cold; have all come true.

To give you an inkling of just how extreme each of these events has been…

  • Wind ~ It could’ve given Donald Trump an instant image makeover; i.e. a bad hair day that could’ve made him the spittiing image of Edward Scissorhands’ bleach blonde fraternal twin.
  • Rain ~ I sereiously thought my back yard was in the early stages of becoming the Sixth Great Lake.
  • Snow ~ I just came inside from a nearly 2 hour shoveling stint. Initially, I cleared at least 15cm / 6in, however, while working, another 5cm / 2in fell.
  • Combo ~ re whatever Rain the Wind failed to evaporate, the Deep Freeze (as I type / you read) is in the process of morphing into a massive, uneven skating rink; one that’d be quite the challenge to the 2022 Winter Olympic figure / speed skaters.
  • Epilogue ~ Considering how the storm is expected to hang out in my hood till 3a.m., the inevitable city snow plows messing up my lower driveway and drifting, too… well… I’ve got a busy Friday ahead.

Well, that’s the weather wrap up, for now.

If you’re experiencing similar conditions and have no particular place to go, play it safe by hunkering down in your bunkers; perhaps catching up on yer Z’s or binge watching yer fave TV shows.

Narcissist Kisses ~ Quick Limerick

`

A big-mouthed narcissist, headstrong; high-strung
Smooched his bedroom mirror, which was wall hung
When he tried French kiss fierce
Looking glass he did pierce
He yaks no more, ‘cause shards severed his tongue

Naw! Nyet!

`

With America’s midterm elections looming (less than nine months off), hardcore rightie, legislative foes, in stonewalling a newbie, centrist president’s pro-proletariat agenda, have already, successfully portrayed him as politically impotent.

Such an orchestrated characterization, in turn, has caused many a centrist / leftist legislator’s job approval rating to plummet, too; has alienated the very voters, who had empowered this whole kit and kaboodle, in the first place.

Now, that’s not to suggest that the understandably, disaffected electorate is about to jump ship / join the ranks of rank Trumpers. However, their failure to vote, come November, will net the same deleterious effect.

Soooooo… is this all as hopeless as it seems? Maybe not???

Seeing how no top billing, ballot player can ever attain / retain such power, sans having at least one top advisor on retainer; one who’s superbly adept in mass media communication; is an extraordinary manipulator of politics, press and public, perhaps Mr. President may have turned this entire, mucked up mess over to his fixer-upper; who in turn, ultimately, opportunistically, has already tapped into a preexisting, potential World War III?

Has this puppet master pulled on the strings of a has-been foreign leader; one who’s desperately ISO an image makeover of his very own; a public relations kick in the ass that could aid and abet this pathetic little dick-tator’s ongoing, pathetic little plot to restore his flaccid, floundering nation to its bygone, storybook, superpower status?

Hmm, one, who, in turn, has been bluffing a looming attack; oh, say, by deploying 100,000 troops in the vicinity of a third hapless, leader-player’s bordering nation?

The End?

`

By now, you, my perceptive, critical thinking readers, have begun to connect my dots; conclude that our chains are getting yanked. True, appearances can be deceiving, but, it’d appear that a particular screenplay’s fictional plot has been afoot; has stepped right off the silver screen and into the real world.

For anyone who may still be in need of a dot, one of that flick’s lines should do the trick…

“We’re not gonna have a war, we’re gonna have the appearance of a war.”

Actor Robert De Niro / Character Conrad Brean [More Wag the Dog Quotes HERE]

Soooooo… could such infantile hamming it up / posturing (in actuality dangerous brinksmanship) do an image makeover; bolster the egos, job performance / poll numbers and national / international standings of both questionable leaders, in question?

Naw and Nyet!

This won’t likely even apply a dull shine to Messrs. Joe Biden’s and Vladimir Putin’s scuffed up IQs.

Synthetic Steel

`

Drug tests of Olympians, mean nothing today
When the juiced are allowed to compete anyway
Fair play’s rule book, these rip-offs, will tear asunder
With their synthetic steel, they steal all the thunder

`

Shot up with steroids / pain killers; obtained at their leisure
Their Ill-gotten gold medals, muddle spectators’ pleasure
Their warped playing field fraud, is not a true measure
Of human steel, esprit de corps; their legit rivals treasure
