Bernie Sanders, one of the Democratic Presidential candidates for 2016, made his debut on Saturday Night Live last night. He appeared in a Titanic skit with his twin separated at birth, Larry David. Naturally, Bernie always gets his message across!
Sanders shouted, “I’m so upset with the one percent getting this preferential treatment,” before making a suggestion: “Enough is enough. We need to unite and work together if we’re going to get through this.”
“Sounds like Socialism to me,” David said, dismissing him.
“Democratic socialism!” Sanders countered.
“What’s the difference?” David asked.
Mimicking Donald Trump, Sanders replied, “Yuuuuge difference.”
Pretty damn good timing, Bernie!!
This is our daily open thread — What makes you laugh?
With the passing of Alan Rickman, David Bowie, Glenn Frey, and especially our own EbbandFlow, I think we can agree that this year really can’t get any worse — and that is not me issuing the universe a friggin’ challenge.
Let’s take it easy on ourselves the rest of the year, eh?
Sad news this morning: Our own EbbandFlow, only a short time after being diagnosed with metastatic lung cancer, has passed on.
I think it’s safe to say that all of us here at TheZoo will miss her terribly. She was always kind and loving, had a great love of family, music, animals — especially birds and her cat, Mel — and she remembered all the Zoosters’ birthdays.
The universe has lost a bright and beautiful light, and Ebb will live our hearts forever.
This is our daily open thread — Please post your favorite music or bird photo in remembrance of Ebb
I know I’ve posted this video a few times over the years, in one form or another, but I’m posting it again.
Why? That’s a good question. I’m glad you asked.
I don’t know if it’s because I’m feeling especially pessimistic or cynical these days, but I’m thinking that we haven’t learned anything over the past year. Maybe it’s just that the United States is absolutely fucking bonkers right now, and I’m having trouble seeing the good in the world; or maybe we’re at a critical turning point, and, much like correcting a naughty child, the behavior gets much worse before it starts getting better.
I hope it’s both, and I hope the “getting better” part starts happening soon.
