Mea culpa

The other day, I joked that a “President Trump” would be something akin to “Immortan Joe” from Mad Max: Fury Road.

Which also makes awesome cosplay, FYI.

After some hurt feelings on Facebook, I am here to apologize.

I was wrong.  Donald Trump is nothing like Immortan Joe.

I mean, sure, they’re both loud, wild-haired, angry demagogues..

Nice teeth, though.

…who’ve racked up a bunch of trophy wives…

So many potential First Ladies to copy speeches from!

…and live in massive towers emblazoned with their “brand”…

And in Joe’s case, a literal brand.

…and have gotten rick by screwing workers over through trickle-down economic policies.

And in Joe’s case, literal “trickle-down.”

And, yeah, they both surround themselves with sycophantic offspring…

Yay, Dad!

…while expressing their admiration for thuggish dictators…

“Bullet Farmer, if you’re listening, I hope you find those emails.”

…and their movements are both largely supported by angry white dudes…


… that’ll still get defeated by a kick-ass chick in the end.



Donald Trump is orange.  Immortan Joe is white.

Also, Joe has a six pack.

Completely. Different. Guy.

And so, I apologize.

Trump is an angry, authoritarian, narcissistic, tower-living, power-hungry, ORANGE tyrant.

“Solemnly swear to [vote for] me… I will never ever let you down.” — Donald Trump

So I totally should have realized that Trump is CLU from Tron: Legacy.

“Be true to me, and I will never betray you!” — CLU

Whew.  I feel better now.

All shiny and orange

The Queen B and I are looking online at what’s playing at the cinema.

Me: … And there’s a showing of Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party.

Queen B: What’s that?

Me: It’s some propaganda piece by right-wing pundit and indicted felon Dinesh D’souza.

Queen B: Ah. I wonder why there isn’t a movie called Trump’s America.

Me: There was. It was called Mad Max: Fury Road.

104 days of summer vacation

Scene: a family car ride. The Ladybug and I have just finished singing the chorus to “Summer (Where Do We Begin)” from Phineas and Ferb.

Ladybug: I miss that show. We should watch a Phineas and Ferb marathon.

Mom: Jeez, that would be a long marathon.

Ladybug: Yes. Yes it would.

Math jokes are the best. And by “best,” I mean “worst.”
