Does the national debt matter?   If the Pope falls in the woods, does a rolling bear hear it?


The best candidate not in the race for president…

Math humor… but, it’s kinda freaky, huh?

That infamous Ranshofen ranter, not known for being terribly broad-minded, weighs in on hyperinflation…

Abenomics — So clever, you might think that the Pentagon had thunk this one up…

Sure, you could buy a dozen pens for $17.26, but don’t be a chump!  Buy 2 refills for only $983.99!


How do they do it?  Simple.  Note the source:  Cool Japan!
Thanks, Abe!

Pity those trying to make sense of the English language…


		by Dr. Gerard Nolst Trenité
 		(Netherlands, 1870-1946)

 		Dearest creature in creation,
 		Study English pronunciation.
 		I will teach you in my verse
 		Sounds like corpse, corps, horse, and worse.
 		I will keep you, Suzy, busy,
 		Make your head with heat grow dizzy.
 		Tear in eye, your dress will tear.
 		So shall I!  Oh hear my prayer.
		Pray, console your loving poet,
		Make my coat look new, dear, sew it! 

 		Just compare heart, beard, and heard,
 		Dies and diet, lord and word,
 		Sword and sward, retain and Britain.
 		(Mind the latter, how it's written.)
 		Now I surely will not plague you
 		With such words as plaque and ague.
 		But be careful how you speak:
 		Say break and steak, but bleak and streak;
 		Cloven, oven, how and low,
 		Script, receipt, show, poem, and toe.
