On Satire Bits: Vol. 114

How’s your week going?

YIKES … winter’s first strike is approaching Cincinnati. Cold temps are one thing, but forecasts are saying 10-14 days of the stuff. Hey … it’s early November!

Tuesday was a work holiday for my wife, so we took advantage of the movie theater’s all-day-Tuesday $5.50 price. Because Mathew McConaughey is on her “exception list” and she enjoys science fiction, we chose Interstellar. It’s definitely science fiction and well done … plus an interesting collection of stars .. It’s a bit to out-there for my taste … but it held my attention.

The next post is the next act of Life: The Musical. The keyword is Love, but keep it to love, thus not other forms of the word. The act starts Wednesday, 9:30 pm (Eastern US). BTW – don’t forget to write the song’s title and artist in your comment because this helps others see the songs already used.

Time for your mid-week dose of satire from The Onion. Any favorites? Don’t forget the extra challenge of making an original headline by using the words in the headlines below. My Combo is at the end. Have a good rest of the week!

  1. In collaboration with educational puppet, Smokey the Bear kills off 9600 procrastinating termites to point out rivals, get people serious about weak-willed, washed up forest service orchestra. Stay warm, Frank.


  2. Ah-ha! So Interstellar was a bit too “out-there” for your taste? Sounds like my kinda sci-fi movie, but I look forward to seeing it and reporting back.

    OK, so I get it, it’s got to be LOVE ONLY this time!

    Sorry, no face hitters today in your Onion Headlines.
