On Satire Bits: Vol. 104

Greetings from hot and steamy Cincinnati … and that unseasonably comfortable weather pattern of last week is a mere distant memory. How’s your weather? And your week so far?

I’ve spent a lot of time volunteering to water two newly seeded areas at the condo. because of the size and slope of the second area, that will be a challenge … and the whole process is time-consuming.

Golf today was better than last week … but not stellar … however, (and once again) at least the company was good.

Let’s move along to your mid-week dose of satire courtesy of The Onion. It’s also time for the return of the combo challenge where you get a chance to create your own headline from the words in the headlines below. My combo is at the end, so select your nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, prepositions, conjunctions, pronouns, and interjections in order to create your headline. Have a good rest of the week.

  1. Who am I to compete with your Dagwood sandwich of a combo, Frank? The weather here in the Big Apple was still tolerable today, but heat, humidity and thunderstorms are in the forecast for tomorrow.


  2. I had to only go outdoors in passing today. Otherwise – I’d wither away.

    On that note…

  3. Your combo is brilliant, Frank! …Mayan word for ‘Apocalypse’ actually translates more accurately as “stockpiles of robots finally beginning to stand for something”.
    Happy Hump Day!! 🙂


  4. My weekend consisted dusting my Brussel Sprout plants with flour in my effort to kill the nasty cabbage worm that has attacked all 6 of my plants, one was so badly infested I had to pull it out. 😦
