Sunday Funday: Shrinkage Edition



Normally this would be my “high holy days of basketball” post. However, a couple of things happened last week that were so funny, they must be discussed. 

The first is the Twitter tale of free speechin’ Devin Nunes and his Mom and his Cow. Nunes has been the butt of twitter parody accounts Devin Nunes Mom and Devin Nunes Cow for quite a while. Neither of these parody accounts had little following until Monday or so when Nunes could take it no longer. So he sued Twitter and is looking to sue the Mom and the Cow. 

When some member of the press got ahold of this and made it public, nothing could have been better publicity especially for the Cow. And away it went. Last I saw Devin Nunes Cow had far surpassed Devin Nunes in followers with well over half a million last I saw. 

Nunes once made a bit of news when he defended the rights of people to shout the “N” word at Congressman John Lewis. Yet he can’t take a little jab in the rib from Mom and Cow. Cowabunga, dude!.

The other story is that of Dear Leader’s border fence around Tijuana. Never posted a twitter thread so here we go. Trevor Noah is pretty self explanatory on what happened:

From lgbtq nation:   

The Alabama senate just unanimously voted for a bill that would get rid of marriage licenses because some judges in the state don’t want to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

If the bill is signed into law, Alabama would be the only state where a marriage license would not generally be required to get married.

Instead, couples would get a form to fill out from the state and present that form or an affidavit to a probate judge, who would then record the marriage.

What I said many years ago – if you don’t want gays to get married, get rid of marriage!
