....wonder who will, figuratively of course, stab him in the back before election night?
Rise and shine! Who’s got O’s back today?
Is that a play on “Baby Got Back”...?
I do recall that being MO’s theme.
My apercu of that poster is that it’s WAYSIST!.....
Walking down the Avenue
On my way to the Inuit Barbeque
I happened to get an apercu
Of a very unusual caribou.
Though I did not get a bird’s eye view,
I knew what this was leading to
For now the town was in a stew,
Due to the presence of caribou
Now “OFF LIMITS” except for the Chosen Green Few.
can you please email me that pic, Ti? i can’t get it to copy.
you astound me, truthy! that was beyond excellent.
Good morning - Greatest news from the NFL Draft: Several hundred college students got jobs!

Oooohh. ((shudder)) A+++
