Laughter is the best medicine. Well, not quite as beneficial as diving into a trough of wine, but almost.
Funny Item Number One, via Taegan:
Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) said that he will visit Israel in October, "a move that signals to the political world that he is seriously considering making another presidential run in 2016," the Washington Times reports.
Said Perry: "We will be going to Israel to bring together Arabs, Christian and Jews in an educational forum."
Of course, that was unintentionally funny. I mean, really... Rick Perry uttering the words "educational forum" out loud? And crediting himself for anything that could possibly teach anyone anything? It's surprising that he even remembered all three: Arabs, Christians, and... um... ummm... oh yeah, Jews!
He was actually Oopsless. Now that's a gen-yew-wine Texas rib-tickler.
Item Number Two is a video that is as funny as it is informative. McBudgeting:
Yes, McDonald's agrees: $15 per hour is what their employees need!
McDonald’s built a web site to “help” their employees make a budget. It’s… unbelievable.
Press play and share far and wide.
