Wednesday, August 2, 2017 – What a Dump? Beyond the Forest

Wednesday, August 2, 2017 – What a Dump? Beyond the Forest

Let’s play Jeopardy! The categories are:

Movie and History Trivia, The United States Constitution, Impeach and Remove, Golf Etiquette and finally Dumb Ass Statements by the POTUS.

I’ll take Movie and History trivia for $1000, please Alex.

A Daily Double!

Let’s make it true Daily Double and risk it all.

The answer is:

Beyond the Forest

Answer: From what movie is the line ‘what a dump’?

Correct: This line is spoken by Rosa Moline (played by Bette Davis) in the film Beyond the Forest, directed by King Vidor (1949).

Next question: For the jeopardy of the country, the answer is:

Donald Trump

Answer: Who said the same line and called The White House a dump?

That is correct.


Too bad the DJT’s Presidency did not come with a warning like Beyond the Forest did.

The movie Beyond the Forest comes with a warning in the first few seconds: “This is the story of evil. Evil is headstrong, is puffed up.”

Monday, May 1, 2017 – Mayday! Ring Around the May Pole. My First 100 Days

Monday, May 1, 2017 – Mayday! Ring Around the May Pole. My First 100 Days

Good Morning, Boys and Girls.

It is the first day of May. May Day should not be confused with “Mayday.” Nor should it be confused with the May Pole. They are both Republican traditions that date back for centuries. (FYI – that is fake news.)

First: Mayday

Today I found out why those aboard planes and ships use the word “Mayday” to indicate they are in extreme distress.

In 1923, a senior radio officer, Frederick Stanley Mockford, in Croydon Airport in London, England was asked to think of one word that would be easy to understand for all pilots and ground staff in the event of an emergency.

The problem had arisen as voice radio communication slowly became more common, so an equivalent to the Morse code SOS distress signal was needed.  Obviously a word like “help” wasn’t a good choice for English speakers because it could be used in normal conversations where no one was in distress.

At the time Mockford was considering the request, much of the traffic he was dealing with was between Croydon and Le Bourget Airport in Paris, France. With both the French and English languages in mind, he came up with the somewhat unique word “Mayday”, the anglicized spelling of the French pronunciation of the word “m’aider” which means “help me”.


Second: The May Pole Dance – This is the origin of pole dancing in America. (FYI – That is also fake-news.)

Puritan Dude pointing out immoral behavior of crew when alcohol is served. Origin of gentlemen’s clubs and judging evangelicals. (FYI – Altered Facts.)


Three: My First 100 Days

Due to space limitations and Sean Spicer’s inability to speak coherently, I shall limit my accomplishments to just the really big; BIG! Big numbers, real good; awesome; major; best days in history of America: all about me.

During My First 100 Days, I have not:

Angered the entire free world, including the historical allies

Really angered the most dangerous nation in the world

Berated the press and all media

Given fake-news or altered facts on national TV or anywhere else

Put my feet on the couch in the Oval Office

Tweeted diplomatic policies at 3:00 AM. Although I usually go to the bathroom about that time, but I am not tweeting.

Accused anybody of wire-tapping my office or spying on me through my microwave

Appointed someone with less credentials than my cat who wants to privatized the public education system

Had a beautiful piece of chocolate cake while sitting across from a foreign leader while sending Tomahawk missiles into a country

Played golf as many times as the potus, but probably played better

Neither have I accomplished any legislation.

Of course I could go on and on because I am so wonderful. Really, really good. Awesome. Best Ever. They like me! They really like me!

So our words/phrases for today are: MAYDAY x 3. May Pole Dancing. And the first 100 Days. What does those words have in common? Trumpet up.

Monday, December 12, 2016 – One College Football Award and Your Monday Assignments

The only award today for college football goes to Sam Houston State University. While alumni are still proud of you, I must award you the Wait Until Next Year Award. It was either that one or the one to James Madison for “A Good Old Fashioned Big Thicket Bearkats’ Butt Kicking.”

Moving onward through the fog…

This just in from the William Robert Bagachips News Bureau. http://www.billybobbagachips.fakenews.com

The finalists for head of the Drug Enforcement Agency in President Elect Twitter’s Cabinet are Tommy Chong, Cheech Marin and Walter White with Mr. White having the inside track according to SNL.

Keep moving through the Worm Hole.

Funny Moon 4.9.16 2016-04-09 007 (800x530)

Our word for the day is thransonical. It is an adjective meaning boastful; vainglorious. His humour is lofty, his discourse peremptory, his tongue filed, his eye ambitious, his gait majestical, and his general behaviour vain, ridiculous, and thrasonical. — William Shakespeare, Love’s Labour’s Lost, 1598

For the Shakespearean challenged Love’s Labour’s Lost is a comedy with a theme of reality versus fantasy.

Assignment: Use thransonical in a sentence at your next Christmas party to describe President Elect Trump. Take a survey to determine how many people believe it to be complimentary.

Thought question for the day – How many millions did the Cabinet Post picks contribute to the Trump campaign? Within a couple of million will be close enough for government work.

Assignment: Select a potential Cabinet member and write an essay titled “Why _____ is qualified to hold the position of ______ .”


How long does the essay have to be? Long enough to cover the subject, so yes handing in a blank piece of paper with just the title will be sufficient. Yes, for extra credit you may address the entire cabinet and still turn in a tabla rasa for qualifications.

Class dismissed. I must see if my Rosetta Stone for learning Russian and Chinese has arrived.



Monday, May 4, 2015 – Check for Understanding

Monday, May 4, 2015 – Check for Understanding

Saint Madeline Hunter here with a check for understanding for State Representative Molly White.

Texas State Representative, Molly White, R- Belton, proposed a bill to “hold doctors and counselors criminally liable if they were found to have coerced a woman into ending a pregnancy. “ Ms. White said she was coerced by her family to have an abortion some 30 years ago.

Questions – 1. Why are you not holding the family liable? 2. Wouldn’t a curriculum topic in a school sex education class about the use of condoms and then the investment in condoms have possibility prevented the need for coercion in the first place? Just asking.
