I love the people recreating famous paintings -- so funny! "Memory Foam never forgets" made me pee my pants with laughter! Trump's Bible Stunt cartoons were great.

And thanks for amplifying my Virtual Pride Parade, Infidel!

Cat jokes are always funny.
I didn't realize that I could have my dog take himself for a walk.
I don't know how people sleep on those memory foam mattresses. I had a memory foam mattress topper and it was so hot at night. I couldn't sleep on it.
I'm actually surprised people don't eat more ocean isopods. I mean we eat shrimp and lobster and those look like sea bugs to me too.

I enjoyed the article about Robert E. Lee and the mythology that has been built around his "cult of personality".

HI Infidel,

I hope you and all your readers are well and safe.

Thanks for reminding me of one of my favorite jokes ever. You'll have to guess which one it is.

I learn so much about cats on Sundays.

That dog walking trick would never work with Macho unless I substituted a really long strand of spaghetti for the leash.

Interesting health center. Not sure which entrance I would feel comfortable using.

Assless chaps. There's another one of your improving words. Englishmen with no butts. Or maybe they don't own donkeys. You decide.

People recreating paintings has become one of my favorite things.

Nice to know that we don't have to compete with giant undersea bugs for toilet paper.

Dogs are very entertaining. In fact, my dog entertained the hell out of me the other day by throwing up on my foot.

I never read the Bible, but I did see the movie. I suspect Twitler's favorite Bible stories are more entertaining than the original. I would add that in Exodus, Twitler is on board with getting rid of his first born son. In fact, I think he'd tell the Pharaoh that all of his sons are first-born.

Why is that guy pissed off at gay people for stealing the rainbow while giving Skittles a free pass?

I got a late start, so I will be back tomorrow for more linky goodness.

I remember during the Obama administration, when Mango Mussolini was just Citizen Trump, he would declare that the unemployment rate was much higher than it was, and that the Obama administration was cooking the books. Of course, once Trump became president, the drop in the unemployment rate was proof that he was the bestest president evah! But if we weren't supposed to trust the numbers during Obama's presidency, why should we trust Trump's numbers?

Debra: I'll be interested to see how the virtual parade goes.

Mary K: Unfortunately that particular dog trick wouldn't work if the dog were a bit smarter.

I'll never understand how people can eat those ghastly-looking things.

Jackie: :-)

Lady M: I knew nothing about Lee before reading that, but there's been a lot of revisionist history employed to whitewash the Confederacy.

Mike: And no doubt there will be plenty.

Nonnie: Hard to guess when there are so many.....

The spaghetti thing might actually work.

Giant isopods don't use toilet paper, but I suspect they might eat it.

Those guys are just pissed off at gay people on general principles. Any pretext will do.

Tommykey: You'll never get consistency from Trump. He's not nearly smart enough to keep track of his own bullshit.
