On Satire Bits: Vol. 132

Hooray … the front has passed through, thus the backside will deliver several days of optimal weather. Simply fabulous … and this is great golf weather. Too bad I struggled in my last round.

Meals: The Musical is the next post. Act 4 features Meat, so song titles must include meat(s) or any meat commonly served. Caution against using animal(s) or any specific animal unless the specific animal appears on a typical menu. For instance, thumbs down to pig(s), but sausage, bacon, pork, and ham are acceptable. Seafood items are unacceptable. Curtain time is Wednesday, 9:30 pm (Eastern US).

Now for your mid-week boost in satire to lead you toward the weekend. Not only cheers to The Onion for their wonderful headlines, but don’t forget the Combo Challenge where you construct an original headline with the words from The Onion headlines below the image. My Combo is at the end. Any favorites below?

Have a good rest of the week. Hope to see you at the theater for Act 4.

  1. I didn’t make a new combo because I couldn’t get over the shock of how closely this one describes me: “Area woman can’t wait to get home and take-off uncomfortable persona.” 😉

  2. I ducked when “Area woman can’t wait to get home and take-off uncomfortable persona” went by, but got hit square when I glanced back and it came the other way.

  3. That’s the perfect illustration after the burger post.
    A bit bleary today – we got 11 inches of rain in a little less time than the Rockets game…then the storm started. Darn NOAA weather alerts kept going off all night. Even Molly is bleary. (She had to sit in the front window and bark constantly at the neighbors’ garbage bags floating down the street.) Then discovered the newish coffee pot was not working! We live close to the lake so water drains fast, and we are something of a high spot on the prairie. There was major flooding like over the cars not far from here. And now it’s getting dark and round 2 is approaching.
    Must wander the meat market before the deluge!
