This just in: Every now and then, I’m having a conversation with someone and my conscious mind leaves the room. Then I hear something like “Don’t you agree,” to which I nearly always answer with “North Dakota.”
There are other things that I either don’t understand or can’t quite get my head around.
For example, I see the U.K. and the E.U. as members of “my team.” I want them to succeed just like I want the United States to succeed. Their success is our success. This is why the Brexit thing has bothered me. This is like a lose-lose-lose situation.
Why would anyone in the U.K. want out of the E.U.?
I saw an interview that may shed some light on this.
Reporter: “Why did you vote in favor of the U.K. leaving the E.U.?”
Girl: “Well, I heard that they were trying to tell us what chicken eggs we have to buy.”
That’s it! I actually saw this interview.
Meanwhile, people in the U.K. are asking people in the U.S. why they support a president that ignores intelligence briefings in favor of notes passed to him from Putin or Fox and Friends.
Reporter: “Why do you support Trump?”
American: “He says what’s on his mind.”
It should be noted that the homeless man sleeping on the front porch of Macy’s in San Francisco has the exact same qualifications.
And here is one I came across while learning Chinese. There are about 50 ways to say “chi” in Chinese and they all mean something different.
For example: “Chi chi chi chi….chi, chi” Means “I went to the market today and the fish was old but they had Caramel Ice cream.”
The response to this statement is: “Chi….chi-chi!!!” which translates, as far as I can tell, into “North Dakota.”
Time to save the world.
Up, up and away…
