Confederate…

Confederate…

So, the creators of Game of Thrones are producing an HBO series set in an alternate future where slavery still exists in the U.S.

David Benioff and Dan Weiss, who adapted “Game of Thrones” from George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” books, will write and direct an original series called “Confederate,” HBO said on Wednesday.

The show is set in an alternative reality in a nation where slavery is still legal and southern U.S. states have seceded. HBO said the series “chronicles the events leading to the Third American Civil War.”

White folks fantasize about the Confederacy winning more than I fantasized about Janet Jackson during her bare midriff period. Also, none of these “what ifs” involve black people getting fed up and killing their asses by 1925. No, we’re all Song of the South in 2015 — tap dancing and shoe shining. That’s what they think of us. I want the “What If” movie where we went Zimbabwe on the U.S. and I’m living like Jay-Z while Donald Trump Jr trims my hedges and Ivanka is scrubbing my toilet seat with the toothbrush I make her bring from home

Obama Derangement Syndrome Continues…

Screen Shot 2017-06-29 at 9.09.27 PM

MISS SCARLET: Why would Obama want to interview someone in his bathtub?

WADSWORTH: I think he meant that a woman conducted an interview with President Obama while she was eating Froot Loops in her bathtub.

MISS SCARLET: What does that have to do with Trump being a sexist prick?

WADSWORTH: I have no clue.

Battle Royale…

Trump’s Thursday morning tweets, in which he called the “Morning Joe” host “crazy” and claimed she was “bleeding badly from a face-lift” when she visited his Florida resort early this year, earned widespread condemnation throughout the day, including from several Republicans on Capitol Hill.

But Sanders argued that the president had every right to “hit back” at “the liberal media” and “Hollywood elites” when they criticize him — and deflected questions about whether the insults were beneath the presidency.

“I don’t think you can expect someone to be personally attacked day after day, minute by minute, and sit back,” Sanders said, arguing that the criticism the president and his aides endure is often personal in nature. “When the president gets hit, he’s going to hit back harder.”

Mika sure is a fearsome foe for the most powerful man in the world. I recall the Gerald Ford-Charo smackdown of the mid-70s that divided a nation.

High Finance…


If you make $500K a year, you could could give your friend a lift to the airport for $10 a something, declare that as Temporary Uber Driver income and qualify for the extra $4K in tax cuts. And if you do this if you’re just shy of $1 million, you’ve earned yourself the starting salary of a public school teacher.

Maybe this is why drivers put up with Uber.

Health Scare 2…

Health Scar 2

DOCTOR: “I’m flattered you’ve spent 40% of your income to see me, but maybe you want to consider reinvesting that money into, well, food and shelter? It might help with the malnutrition and frost bite. That’ll be a $200 co-pay for this visit. Now please don’t die outside my office. It’s just depressing.”

  1. I miss V&T pizza from my old Upper West Side neighborhood.
  2. I don’t think women eat pizza like this.
  3. It’s possible but probably not with white sheets.

“Except your aunt with breast cancer is just a person and we’re talking about a Ferrari 250 GT Spyder! I love driving it. It’s so choice! If you have the means I highly recommend you picking one up. Anyway, what were we talking about?”
