    Is anyone else flashing back to the January, 1973 issue of ‘National Lampoon’ magazine whose cover demanded: “If You Don’t Buy This Magazine. We’ll Kill This Dog!”?

      Sadly…, yes. Seems like yesterday.

    Unable to find a way the #sequester will make puppies cry, the Washington Post finds the next best thing.

    Why do we need a “national” zoo? If people of a certain city, or state, want to create and fund a zoo, leave it at that. The feds don’t need to be involved.

      I still think their issue on “Unwanted Foreigners” is one of their best!

    I’m sure tomorrow there will be a photoshopped “fake but accurate” picture of Sens. Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz having roasted puppies for dinner.

    Toasted by bottled tears of starving children, of course.
