Welcome to the 100th edition of Satire Bits. Nothing special, just the same old drivel.

Hope your week has gone well so far.

  • My eye vision is the same, and I’m waiting for the call to schedule my next test (and I don’t understand the delay)
  • Even with the eye problem, my golf game has been good.
  • Life: The Musical – Act 6 is the next post featuring songs with teen(s), teenager(s), teenage, or a specific teen year in the song title – Curtain time is Wednesday, 9:30 pm (US Eastern)

For your mid-week dose of satire, I dived into the depths of The Onion archives looking for treasures regarding the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) – a federal agency is responsible for “protecting  the public health” regarding food products, cosmetics, and medical drugs, vaccines, and medical devices. I’ve even included some with a caption below the appropriate image (all from The Onion). Any favorites? Do you have an ideas on topics for future Satire Bits? Have a good rest of the week.
