I’m not insane enough (yet?), to answer when I ask myself a question. These questions I have are not ones you can get answers for on Google. Maybe YOU could help me. If you’re not afraid to be seen here, and would work
for free pro-bono.
Before anyone volunteers (rrrrighttt!), I should give you a few examples of the crap my mind wonders about, while I go about my day:
- If you gave your blog URL to your therapist, would it help him diagnose you?
- Why does the IRS expect you to pay taxes after you die? This has apparently been going on for a while, so we can’t blame Obama for this. But just who in the Hell thought this was a good idea?
- Why aren’t Honey-Boo-Boo’s parents in jail?
- Which shades of green yarn make cuter crocheted frogs? Should I use all shades to convey diversity, or does PC only apply to people?
- Did Jewel write her song, Foolish Games, about Jean-Claude Van Damme?
- Speaking of, I sure would love to be able to do spin-kicks like that. No matter how many times I watch his movies, I can’t get the move down. I sure like watching him do them. (no question here – my mind just veers off on its own)
- What happened to dancing to The Macarena at wedding receptions? I could do that one.
- Do all men blow their nose in the shower?
- What was I thinking when I gave my blog address to my kids?
And so on, and so forth.

Has Political Correctness gone too far?
“Yes!”, exclaims Mayor Eldon Sidney, “and the people of this town have decided to do something about it.”
The residents of Nemo, CA decided at their monthly town meeting on Friday, to put together a local law (Measure” N”) that would be added to the County Election ballot and voted on during the Primary Election, Tuesday, June 5th, 2012.
If passed, Measure “N” will exempt the town of Nemo from using P.C. terminology. They will be free to talk like they used to.
“You know, like back when this country had free-speech”, said Councilman Hart. “We have more rules, laws, and taxes forced on us now by our own Government than the English oppressed us with back in the 1770’s.”
Nemo’s oldest resident at 89-years, Hattie May Johnson, laughed when asked how she felt about Measure N. “I’ve been talking since the age of two and nobody’s going to be able to change how I do it now. I don’t cuss or take the Lord’s name in vain, which is more than those politicians can say!” Hattie went on to explain, “If we say someone is ‘height challenged’, everyone has to think about that a minute to translate the meaning. Horse feathers! Short means short! I’m short. Are you ashamed of being short? If you say I’m ‘height challenged’ I am still short. It don’t change that fact one bit!”
She’s got a point there. Maybe there should be a law about political correctness – requiring politicians to behave correctly...
