Friday Happy Hour: Fat Kim Edition

There was a huge announcement out of York, PA this week, and before you start yapping about a race for governor that is two years away, that is not the announcement we are talking Kim jong unabout.  The 90’s alternate rock band Live has reunited.  Straight outta York, people!

Also this week, former President George W. Bush and his wife Laura announced they have adopted a puppy.  Given the vitriol that has dominated our national dialogue since Election Day, we thought it was important that we all take a step back and look at a puppy.  There, feel better?  

Morning Consult and Politico this morning released the results of one of the largest exit polls ever conducted in a Presidential race. To see how it all shook out on Election Day, this piece is well worth checking out.  Or, you can do your own amateur analysis, post it on Twitter and Facebook and anger half of your friends and family.  Your call.

As of this writing, Presidential door prize winner Hillary Clinton is racing toward a 2 million vote lead in the national popular vote, largely because California can’t seem to count votes in a timely fashion.  This has spurred a movement among die-hard Clinton-istas to call for electors to ditch President-elect Donald Trump and instead install Clinton in the White House.  Before anyone goes any farther, let’s just go ahead and clear up the fact that this will come to pass right about the time the earth plunges into the sun, so y’all can just knock it off and get back to work.

Friday Happy Hour: Possessed Dressing Edition

LemonPoppyseedVinaigretteBefore we get to the meat and potatoes of this week’s update, let’s all take a moment to thank all our veterans for making this country safe for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  It is only through their service that you enjoy the freedom to vote (and protest, and celebrate, and Tweet) even if forty percent of you never got around to fulfilling that particular voting duty.  Aren’t you glad that our soldiers always fulfill theirs?

And of course, a very happy 241st birthday to the United States Marine Corps, the most lethal fighting force in the history of mankind!  You haven’t aged a day!

Friday Happy Hour: Naked Gun Edition

Today we begin by taking a cue from Lieutenant Frank Drebin, who, in the original Naked Lt. DrebinGun flick, revealed that when he wants to avoid thinking about certain things, he just thinks about baseball. The Chicago Cubs erased 108 years of futility this week, beating Cleveland in World Series Game 7 in what some say could have been The Most Exciting Baseball Game in the History of Baseball Games. Thank you for the brief diversion, MLB.
