Yes, it’s time to steal a few more jokes from my father-in-law (F.I.L.). For those of you who might be new here, he used to write for Alan King, Milton Berle and Jonathan Winters, just to name a few. And all those Dean Martin Roasts, too: Don Rickles, Red Buttons, Phyllis Diller, Sammy Davis, Jr., etc.
A tiny respite from all the frustrating events of the day:
This week marks the 40th anniversary of the Watergate hearings. Back then the administration was spying on reporters and they used the IRS to harass groups they didn’t like. Thank God those days are gone forever.
First it was Benghazi, then the IRS scandal, and now this phone records scandal. What happened to the good old days when all we had to worry about was REP. ANTHONY WEINER showing off his wiener on Facebook?
The OBAMA administration was hit by three scandals in one week. The PRESIDENT called GOV. CHRIS CHRISTIE and asked if a lap-band could be put on the White House.
When it comes to Benghazi they keep looking for the smoking gun and there isn’t any. Where is the smoking gun? What a sad affair, an American not able to find a gun.
It was over 100 degrees in Los Angeles and was I sweating. Now I know how PRESIDENT OBAMA felt this week at a press conference.
It was so hot people in Beverly Hills were actually drinking tap water.
At the Rancho Park golf course, a squirrel was spotted putting Right Guard on his nuts.
O.J. SIMPSON was in court this week trying to overturn his conviction. He knows it’s a long shot, but as he said, “I’ll take a stab at it.”
He’s trying to overturn his conviction of armed robbery and kidnapping. O.J. said, “I’m tired of everyone thinking of me as only a robber and kidnapper. Remember what a great murderer I am.”
The most notable thing to come out of the trial so far is that O.J. has put on a lot of weight. Remember, “If the glove doesn’t fit you must acquit.” The new rhyme is, “If the pants don’t fit you must not sit.”
