Sunday Roast: This Week in *facepalm*

I can’t…I just can’t…

 

First up:  Joe Scarborough!!

“I’ve already said at some point, I want to get back into service, public service, and hopefully I can do it while a Republican’s at the White House,” Scarborough told rightwing talk radio host Hugh Hewitt.

*cough* dead intern *cough*  Please proceed, Joe.

Next:  Unidentified racist USC fuckwit!!

In the photo, the woman can be seen using a red marker to list ““reasons why USC WiFi blows.”

Topping her list was the offensive racist slur [n*ggers], followed by “incompetent professors,” “ratchets,” “overpopulated campus,” and “parking.”

I hope Mummy & Daddy haven’t wasted too much money on little precious’s party weekends.

Lastly:  Kansas to ban welfare recipients from living the high life!!

According to the Kansas “Successful Families Program“, an eligible family of four in a “high cost/high population” area would be eligible for $497 in cash assistance per month in addition to receiving food stamps.

With that windfall, future recipients would be banned from using those funds to go on cruises, use them to pay for tattooing or body piercing, pay for psychics, or go to spas to get massages or manicures.

Additionally, funds may not be used in casinos, jewelry stores, video arcades, lingerie shops or any sexually oriented retail business, or to pay bail-bondsmen.

Because it’s not enough to treat families on TANF like they’re moronic children; the state has to grind the humiliation into their bones with the heel of its boot.

You know, I was going to call this post “This Week in Fuckery,” but I didn’t want it to be fifteen pages long — so I only chose three items.  You can thank me for my thoughtiness by liking the post, and leaving an insightful comment.  Or snark…rudeness — okay rudeness is acceptable too, but it has to be witty.  ;)

This is our daily open thread —  Hit me with best your shot.

  1. On the farm, every Friday
    On the farm, it’s rabbit pie day.
    So, every Friday that ever comes along,
    I get up early and sing this little song

    Run rabbit – run rabbit – Run! Run! Run!
    Run rabbit – run rabbit – Run! Run! Run!
    Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!
    Goes the farmer’s gun.
    Run, rabbit, run, rabbit, run.
    Run rabbit – run rabbit – Run! Run! Run!
    Don’t give the farmer his fun! Fun! Fun!
    He’ll get by
    Without his rabbit pie
    So run rabbit – run rabbit – Run! Run! Run!

    • They threw in a pic of cute baby chimp for the awwww factor!

      …….
      and this for hilarity

  2. Arthur Carlson is alive and living in Eagle River, Alaska! 😀 😯 😀

      • It was when the straw began scattering that I realized the true folly of the idea.

        They should have tried it using small drone ‘copters. It might have worked better.

  3. Fossils shouldn’t opine on current day foreign policy. I mean, James Baker.

  4. Miss Lindsey says Hillary Clinton would get a better deal from the Iranians, and that all the candidates on his side would do better, except Rand Paul. (From FtNation)

  5. As I often do, I post my column on my own blog and schedule it for Monday here. The column was starting to get rather long, so I broke it off at some point and posted what I had here. It’s just a jumping off point for discussion, but there was enough to make one coherent post. I continued writing it and posted a longer version on my own blog. You can get it from this link. If you like what you read there, you can post a comment there. Maybe that will inspire some of my subscribers to post comments. Other than spambots, of course.🙂

    Thank you, and I hope you enjoy it.
