Whale Dead After Consuming 17-lbs Of Plastic On A Bet

The Pacific Ocean—A killer whale was found dead yesterday after consuming 17 lbs of now non-recyclable plastic during what friends are calling “a bet gone awry.” The previous record for plastic consumption by a cetacean was held by Polymer Pete, a blue whale who one day turned bluer from asphyxiation and choked to death. A liberal oceanographer remains annoyed at this hour, “Sorry another whale is dead, but the thing was mixing high and low density polyethylene as well as any and all vinyl and terephthalate. It’s like going back in time to prehistoric cave-people recycling.” Fred and Ethylene Flintstone were unavailable for comment.

Help! My Seemingly Sane Friend Wants To Teardown Our Republic Based On Limbaugh-Level Logic

How does The GOP respond to another looming rightwing catastrophe? They flip the script, of course. We’re not the constitutional crisis, you and your lib-leaning FBI are the constitutional crisis. And even if Trump does turn out to be the crisis, you libs made Trump by having the audacity to call xenophobes bigots. The FBI is lousy with hipster spooks, lousy with them, I say! If Mueller’s findings end up sidelined, we should be storming the old Bastille, yet my blogvesary is focusing on “Spygate”? …you know, another fictional scandal with half the calories of Pizzagate. You have a super majority, dude, so of course we’ll investigate your feigned outrage. We always explore the rightwing conspiracy theory of the day and we do this while the last of society’s intelligentsia remains neutered. Castration without representation?

Pardon My Glitch? Constitutional Scholars Claim Trump Only Legally Pardoned Jack Johnson’s Johnson

Tweet Tower—An embarrassing grammatical snafu involving the coolest of Trump’s recent executive orders, impacts the pardoning of boxing great Jack Johnson. Due to an unfortunate typo, only Jack Johnson’s Johnson was legally pardoned last week. Under the heading ‘full name’, Trump’s pardon reads: John Arthur “Jack” Johnson Johnson, the first African-American heavyweight boxing champion. There’s an extra Johnson, which in legal terms implies the full pardon of only the boxer’s penis.

Trump Expedites The Elderly’s Right To Meet Death

Tweet Tower—A new deal between the Trump Organization, Big Pharma, Signa, and the Grim Reaper actually hastens the life-process for individuals associated with high medical costs. This new plan is designed to benefit the healthcare providers, while at the same time helping ordinary people, like you, pass into the underworld more easily. The collaborative effort is designed to cut costs, cut life support, and finish off Obamacare by the midterm elections. The details of the deal remain shrouded—in a black cowl, actually—but the president promises it’s a big win for healthy young people, who should probably stay inside from now on …where it’s safe.

President Trump To Pardon Roseanne Barr

Tweet Tower—Earlier today the president of ABC, Channing Dungey, announced the cancellation of their top-rated sitcom Roseanne after a racist tweet surfaced on Roseanne Barr’s personal Twitter feed. Mrs. Dungey called the comments, “Abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values.” President Trump quickly came to Roseanne’s defense and is considering a full pardon at this time for the tweet and any related damages.

Fire & Fury? Trump To Meet Kim Jong Un At The Halfway Point, Hawaii

Big Island, HI—The proposed location for President Trump’s on-again, off-again summit with North Korea is both raising eyebrows and singeing them. The president announced the two leaders will meet in June on Hawaii’s Big Island, preferably “right near some of the active lava flows.” Is the president trying to tie in his earlier “fire and fury” comments, or is he still investigating Barack Obama’s birthplace? It’s hard to say, especially when your president can barely speak.

Now That Our President Is More Dangerous Than The Spooks, We’re Investigating The Spooks

Last November the US elected its first pathological Liar-in-Chief, and this is when we finally get to look under the g-men hood and kick the tires? During normal times I’d be cheering loudly and waving my I Still Believe, Sanjaya! ascot. But these are not normal American Idol times, and the ascots only come in lavender. Thus far the 21st century rightwing conspiracies have proven to be distractions, but will the FBI counter counter-investigation prove different? There are only two conspiracy theories that hold any merit: Lee Harvey Oswald did not act alone in the death of John F. Kennedy, and Plankton was not the only culprit in Spongebob’s Great Krabby Patty Caper (season 7, ep.17). Mr. Oswald publically stated “I’m a patsy” and was then gunned down within 48-hours. The Feds certainly know more on this matter than meets the FB-eye. Also, Larry the Lobster yelled he was “A patty” before being boiled alive during a Krabby Patty interrogation by BBPD. This episode, Butter You Than Me, never aired thanks to the efforts of Gina Haspel and Mike Pompeo. Fine, that’s a bit of a tangent, but so is this rightwing counter counter intelligence investigation that thus far seems counter to intelligence.

Trump Orders Minted Summit Coins Dropped Over Pyongyang From 30,000 Feet

Tweet Tower—In a move many are calling predictable, President Donald Trump has ordered his Department of Defense to drop the one million newly minted NK/USA June summit commemorative coins over the most populated areas of North Korea. This news comes today shortly after negotiations regarding the tentative Singapore summit between the two nations officially broke down. If this were not childish enough, the U.S. military has been instructed to make farting sounds as they fly over the North Korean peninsula. Donald Trump has also ordered his Justice Department to fully investigate the Nobel Peace Prize Committee, because he “still wants one.” When the president was told the Nobel Committee is housed in Norway, the Trump Administration immediately placed stiff sanctions on the country and imposed crushing tariffs on all Scandinavian imports.

Trump’s Own Travel-Ban Prohibits Him From Attending Upcoming Summit With North Korea

Tweet Tower—Sometimes it pays to read one’s own fine print. President Trump is working feverishly to salvage the upcoming summit between himself and the Supreme Commander of North Korea, Kim Jong Un. Today the plot has officially thickened. Due to a provision of his own travel ban, the president can not fly to the tentative location of the summit in Singapore. Primarily the travel ban prohibits anyone from flying into the U.S. from seven specific Muslim countries. On the last page of the document, however, the president went on a bit of an unscripted rant. He added what he called a Trumpmendment which also prohibits the following groups from flying at all: socialists, kids named after places (like Dakota or Cheyenne), and anyone the DOJ or the DHS considers an ass-clown. Today, the Department of Homeland Security has confirmed that the president is a world class ass-clown and needs to stick to the lower-48 until the people over at Ringling Brothers can release their final report.

So Don’t Be Sad, As For Crisis, Conflict & Collapse, 2 Out Of 3 Ain’t Bad

Catastrophes are looming, so the rightwing distraction machine shifts into overdrive. What exactly are they trying to hide? Drumpf’s first trimester will bring a constitutional crisis, an unnecessary war, and/or an economic collapse (two for three, or your security back!). Dubya started with an unnecessary war that resulted in a constitutional crisis. Then, during Bush’s second trimester, he triggered the worst global event since the series finale of Glee. You might not remember the constitutional crisis part, because Obama was complicit in the torture scandal cover up. Make no mistake, the emergence of Pompeo and Haspel into positions of power highlights this blatant failure to clean up Dodge. Thanks, Obama, I thought this was America! I almost miss that… It looks like Trump will start with a constitutional crisis followed by an unnecessary war. He’s planning to save the economic cherry on his shit sundae for last. But it’s going to be a great depression! The best depression! #ApocolypseDOW?
