On Satire Bits: Vol. 77

Uh oh! Guess what today is? Hey Elyse – Do you know what today is? Come on Rich, just say it. Carrie, guess what today is? Lame, Lame, Lame – I know you can hear me! What day is it? Woo hoo!!!!! …. (I couldn’t resist)

No change with my mother-in-law – not better, not worse – but it still weighs on our minds.

Act 9 of Time: The Musical returns with the next post. Theme is extended time featuring songs with words in the title as decade(s), century(s), era(s), and others. Years is acceptable if and only if number is at least 100, but a specific year in the future is unacceptable.  Curtain time is 9:30 pm (Eastern US).

I plan to announce a new occasional feature in the next Opinions in the Shorts. Sorry, but it has nothing to do with The Nincompoop.

Time for your midweek dose of satire courtesy of The Onion. Any of the below tickle your funny bone? For those who enjoy the extra challenge, make a new headline from the words below. My combo is at the end. Have a good rest of the week.
