This just in. . . .

News Headline:
“Terror threat at sex robot expo.”
Or think of it this way:
Name a news headline that better sums up the times we live in.

5 days until Christmas

News Headline: “Man sees Nativity scene inside his Kielbasa Wellington.”
Ho, Ho, Ho!!

From Poor QT’s Almanack

Today’s Birthdays: Fritz Reiner, 129; “The Music Man,” 60.

We have seen the present, and it does not work

University College London has apologized for a tweet about hoping for snow.
The tweet included the prhase “dreaming of a white campus.”
The apology came after outraged students said the reference to snow, which is white, was an insult to those aware of  the “history of the oppression of the PoC [People of Color].”

QT loud guy at the end of the bar update

News Headline: “Twitter’s new rules will ban accounts from using ‘hateful material.’ ”
The new rules have been in effect for a day.
Why does Donald Trump still have an account?

6 days until Christmas

News Headline:
“Police arrest ‘criminal Santa’ stuck inside chimney.”
Ho, Ho, Ho!

Breaking news. . . .

News Headline:
“President Trump is losing the support of Fox viewers.”
Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together, mass hysteria. . . .

This just in. . . .

News Headline: “Man digs hole in garden and refuses to get out.”
As reasonable a response as any to the news of the day.

War is peace, freedom is slavery, ignorance
is strength, Trump is great

News Headline:
“Trump to CDC: These 7 words are now forbidden.”
The word and phrases reportedly banned byt the Centers for Disease Control are: ‘vulnerable,’ ‘entitlement,’ ‘diversity,’ ‘transgender,’ ‘fetus,’ ‘evidence-based’ and ‘science-based.’ ”
Kids, go get grandpa.
Ask him what it was like when 1984 was a warning, not an instruction manual.

9 days until Christmas

Can it be time for QT’s annual reminder that the reindeer’s name isn’t Donner, but Donder?
And  that it isn’t Kris Kringle, but Kriss Kringle?
Ho, Ho, Ho!
