On Satire Bits: Vol. 54

How’s your week going so far? I’ve got a lot of little things on my plate, so my visits are limited … and I don’t see much changing the rest of the week.

Tuesday night was golf night. Although my wife told me that it was one of her worst games in some time, I had a good one – which was a good bounce-back from last week’s horrible round.

On to the mid-week dose of satire. Do you have any favorites? Can you develop your own headline using any combination of the info below? My combination is at the end. Have a good rest of the week!

  1. Nice try, but “On Satire Bits: Vol. 54,” just had too big a hill to climb to get anyway near your all-time masterpiece – “On Satire Bits: Vol. 53,” which I’ve been successfully mining the last week in my water cooler conversations.

    Also glad your golf game improved yesterday. I attribute your turn-around to my pre-match practice range coaching session, which cleared your mind of distracting swing thoughts, and let you focus on why the Reds hitters (except for Joey Votto) refuse to choke up on the bat with two strikes in the count.


    • Tim,
      Good try. I can’t recall thinking about the Reds during the round. Success on this night was getting it done from the tee (putting for birdie 6 of 9, no three putts).


  2. I liked “Boyfriend forced to express second-hand outrage” but he should nly have done it once. 😉

    How about
    “Rigorous Attorney in thrilling Battle of wits with police informant unable to determine Evidence of gang emptying dishwasher”


  3. No comparison to your excellent combo, but here’s my attempt:
    Attorney friends express outrage upon seeing “BA in Communications” on resume of humans piling up.
    Have a great Wednesday, Frank!


  4. Sorry, I’m still basking in the double-barreled “you can’t make this stuff up” from the end of last week. First the Italian assistant minister for LGBT relations gets canned in less than 24 hours for dumb (albeit true) comments, then the Air Force’s officer in charge of eliminating sexual assault is arrested for sexual assault. Truth is, indeed, stranger than fiction.
    Glad to hear you had a good golf fame. Me, I’m hacking my way outta the sand trap that is my Inbox. I think I might be on the green in one! (Okay, two. Okay, REALLY, well ….. what’s the highest number you can get in golf? 😀 )


  5. I love your satires.. I think you already know that :). Some make me think and some make me laugh a lot. Like this one, Boyfriend forced to express second-hand outrage.. my boyfriend would laugh at that one lol.


    • Kay,
      Glad these are able to provide a chuckle. Meanwhile … and sometime in the future …. I will be posting satirical like headlines for bloggers … .and yes … I already have one for you. 🙂


  6. I could probably come up with one, but yours really is the best. And from the Onion’s choices I loved “No one in gang has heart to tell his police informant his cover’s blown.” I thought all of the Onion headlines were particularly good this week! 🙂
