I think so, Brain … but isn’t a reputation for being upright usually an asset in a political campaign?
I think so, Brain … but wouldn’t having someone that size walk the plank risk capsizing the ship?
I think so, Brain … but not every alleged satirist can take it as well as he dishes it out. His feelings might get hurt.
I think so, Brain … but the Disney Costume Department called, and they want the hippo’s tutu back.
It’s just Bugs and not a feature.
UPDATE—More birthday celebrating at The Camp of the Saints.
Well, I suppose so, Brain … but why would Barbara Streisand want to sing backup for Op-Critical?
Yes, Brain … but isn’t Sydney Greenstreet too slender for the role?
Probably, Brain … but Neal thinks he’s in Norway, and Pippi Longstocking is Swedish and not really his type.
I guess so, Brain … but do you really think it was Joe Biden who taught him to hold a shotgun that way?
I’m not sure, Brain … KPFK’s ratings are low enough as is. They’d never replace The BradCast with the Lord of Satire.
I think so, Brain … but do they make tutus in Bill’s size?
The only rules comedy can tolerate are those of taste, and the only limitations those of libel.
Yeah, I know that there’s some folks out there who view the President’s standup routine at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner as first-rate, but I’m in the camp of those who disagree. My usual advice to people who really shouldn’t be on the stage is “don’t give up your day job,” and I would offer it to Barack Obama even if I thought he had been brilliant.
Visualize President Biden.
… in joke books. Andrew Klavan has details.
Governmentium has 1 neutron, 12 assistant neutrons, 75 deputy neutrons, and 224 assistant deputy neutrons for an atomic mass of 312. These 312 particles are held together by forces called morons that are further surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like sub particles called peons. Governmentium has no electrons and is therefore inert. However, It can be detected because it impedes every reaction with which it comes into contact. A tiny amount of governmentium can take a reaction that normally occurs in seconds and slow it to the point where it take days.
Governmentium has a normal half life of three years. It doesn’t decay but re-organizes, a process where assistant deputy neutrons and deputy neutrons change places. This process actually causes it to grow, as in the confusion some morons become neutrons, thereby forming isodopes. This phenomenon of moron promotion has led to some speculation that governmentium forms whenever sufficient morons meet in concentration forming critical morass.
Researchers believe that in Governmentium, the more you re-organize, the morass you cover.
Of puns it has been said that those who most dislike them are those who are least able to utter them.

There are three side effects of acid: enhanced long-term memory, decreased short-term memory, and I forget the third.
When the light turns green, you go. When the light turns red, you stop. But what do you do when the light turns blue with orange and lavender spots?
Spread some warmth. Spread some smiles. Say, “Yes,” to Radi-Aid.
And watch the music video.
