Something to take your mind of politics. I like this one:

11. The Jumping Frenchmen of Maine

Yes, this really is the name of this bizarre disorder which occurs when a person becomes extremely startled by an unexpected noise or sight and begins exhibiting an unusual response such as involuntarily flailing his arms, crying out or repeating words. The exact cause of Jumping Frenchmen is unknown, but was first identified in 1878 in some of Maine’s lumberjacks of French-Canadian descent and is thought to belong to other culturally specific disorders such as startle-matching syndromes. This odd reflex has also been identified in other parts of the world and has been linked to the neurological disorder, Coprolalia, a form of Tourette’s characterized by involuntary outbursts of obscene language.

Sessions

"That's the problem with being implacable foes - no one has any incentive to treat you as anything more than an obstacle to be overcome."

Well, I'll be rogered with a stiff wire brush!
Reality is a hallucination caused by alcohol deprivation.

Only Satan can rebuke sin. The righteous don't know enough.

God is not dead. He was merely voted out of office.

You can do anything with anybody if you just save them the trouble of thinking.

As one who is legally dead, heavily pursued by George Clooney (who I love, despite his very small penile appearance- omg- is it shrinking?), I don't think this is funny. Dahling, his music is red. But he is so hot for me, and who could blame him? If I ever wake up, he's in for a run of it. I'm a wee bit hungry today, and lucky me- our neighbors are beginning a paint project. Snacks for PG!

Now if you'll excuse me, I have cuticles and toenails that need to be "addressed". More snacks. Mama's hungry.

--- On September 17, 1787, as Benjamin Franklin was leaving the deliberations of the Constitutional Convention, at Independence Hall, in Philadelphia, a woman called out to him, saying, “Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?”
“A republic,” Franklin said, “if you can keep it.”

Then there's the special needs character who could only speak in reviews of the movie "I Am Sam." Check out 0:40-1:50.

If you're not familiar with Drawn Together it was a spoof on reality shows with a bunch of disparate cartoon characters thrown together in the same house. Most are satirical versions of well known cartoon characters only a bit more ... broken.) If you want a bit more of an idea of their kind of humor, here's a gay test when one of the characters thought he might be homosexual.

Sorry. I've got my head in tax law. That leaves very few brain cells still awake to process anything else.
