In this post: Old goats, lousy chickens.
Yo. I’m tired, and here’s why. Sam and I hung out in the family room until 3 a.m. watching old Bob Newhart reruns, I woke up at 5:45 for my middle-of-the-night senior citizen bathroom adventure and couldn’t fall asleep when I went back to bed so I thrashed around for about an hour, annoyed Sam, couldn’t get comfortable and eventually wound up here in the study reading the latest baloney on Gawker and Jezebel. Trouble is, I’ve got a doctor appointment this morning at 10 and that’s just about the time I need a solid morning nap if I don’t sleep well the night before. Sucks to be me, doesn’t it?
Here’s some late-breaking political news in case one or two of you still give a crap about our government. THE WORLD’S OLDEST CONGRESSMAN LOST HIS PRIMARY RUNOFF ELECTION ON TUESDAY. Republican Ralph Hall, the 91-year-old World War II fighter pilot from Rockwall, Texas, who witnessed the geological formation of the East Texas Oil Field and actually knew Bonnie & Clyde, lost to a Tea Party halfwit who believes that Obama is a Nazi Communist from Kenya. The halfwit used modern campaign techniques such as direct mail, walking the district and meeting voters; Hall just mailed out a bunch of Honeybaked hams.
And now for an addendum to my May 23 Howdygram post on the subject of FOOD CONTAMINATION. Apparently I overlooked an ongoing issue with Foster Farms chicken and drug-resistant salmonella Heidelberg so I’d like to fill you in right now.
