Dispatches from the Heat Front

It’s not just humans suffering in the heat. My laptop’s fan had been working since I opened the damn thing up. The whole aluminum enclosure was baking. The poor thing was on the bitter edge of terminal heat shock.

So, hoping I was in time, I put it in the shower and rained cold water down upon it. Sadly, I must have been too late because now the thing won’t turn on at all.

Let this be a lesson to you: address your computer’s overheating issues early, before it’s too late.

A creation website is good for something? Who knew?

While seeking general sea pen photos with which to mock Marine Le Pen, I ran into this lovely photo of a sea pen all dressed up for today’s Pride celebrations in NY and other various locations:

Multi colored sea pen, with mostly purple around the rim and generous yellows & sky blues along the stalks. Other colors sneak in here & there.

Le Pen Marin(e), decked out for NY & SF Pride, or maybe in other areas it’s just ready for the local library’s Drag Queen Story Hour.

What really knocked me out is that the image comes from a creationist website. I SWEAR I ONLY READ IT FOR THE PHOTOS. Happy Pride ya perverts!

 

Pselebrating Psaki

I want my, I want my, I want my Psaki…

Now look at them briefings, that’s the way you do it.
Embarrass Doocy on your WonkTV
That ain’t deference, that’s the way you do it
Answer the questions, give ‘em facts for free.
Now that ain’t spinning, that’s the way you go it:
Reject the premise if the question’s dumb
Maybe you blister ears of FOX’s listeners
Maybe you condescend to feed them crumbs

She’s gonna speak to, the whole damn nation
Forthright, upbeat delivery
She’s gonna speak to the voting public
She’s gonna speak from their LCDs

See that Biden with the Oval for an office?
Yeah, FOX News, he won it fair.
That ol’ Joe Biden got his own Air Force One.
That ol’ Joe Biden got an honest air.

She’s gonna speak for that ol’ Joe Biden,
Forthright, upbeat delivery.
She’s gonna speak truth, swat down the nonsense
She’s gonna speak through our LCDs

I shoulda learned my journalism.
I shoulda learned my Poli Sci.
Look at that Psaki, she got it goin for the camera!
Girl, we could have some fun.
OANN’s* up next, What’s that? “Some people say that?”
Which people say that? Can you name me three?
Now that ain’t dodgin’; that’s the way you do it:
Pandemic questions go to CDC

She’s gonna speak to the whole damn nation
Forthright, upbeat delivery.
She’s gonna speak for the Biden White House.
She’s gonna speak through our LCDs.

That ain’t deference, that’s the way you do it:
Answer the questions, nix conspiracies.
That’s just briefing; that’s the way you do it:
Explain administration policy.
Answer the questions, give ‘em facts for free
Answer the questions, give ‘em facts for free
Answer the questions, give ‘em facts for free
Answer the questions, give ‘em facts for free
