Why Is FR Comedy Central Today?
Free Republic ^ | 8/26/12 | randita

Posted on 08/26/2012 5:21:21 PM PDT by randita

It started early this morning. Every thread I clicked on had a banter of double entendres, puns, jokes, and general silliness and cleverness. Many were laugh out loud funny.

Is it the hurricane? Is everyone half looped? Are people juiced up for the RNC Convention? Have your kids finally driven you crazy while they were home for the summer?

Whatever it is, keep it up. It's hilarious.

I'm a long time FR veteran and I've noticed this happens once in a blue moon. I've never been able to ascertain the reason why, but it's fun to conjecture.

There are more than enough reasons to cry but laughter keeps the brain full of endorphins and sharpens the mind for the battles ahead.

The name Issac means laughter! It's laughter is directed to Tampa.

I'm going to post, just in case this thread goes to 1000+ posts, I want my first one in the single digits.

You never know where a thread will go....

Actually, the blue moon is this Friday.

A blue moon is 2 full moons in one month.

Won’t happen again until July 2015 if I am correct.

'today' ?

I've been hangin' around here for 13yrs and it's always been like that .. lol !

One of FR's best (and sanity-retaining) features, imho.

Is there a blue moon?

I noticed that yesterday and commented on it. Every thread was open season for a new comedy routine. I think everyone, if they feel like I do, is weary of the Romney strife (not counting the disrupting trolls) and the doom and gloom wreaked by the Obama Depression. Lots of tension also building toward election day. Besides there’s more to life than politics.

yeah, I love this. August starts with a full moon and ends with one.

I guess it was perfect timing for Neil Armstrong to pass away between two full moons.

Maybe it is a release of steam. There were VERY heated back and forths last week due to the Akin fiasco. Seems like a truce has been called, so now we can relax and play a little.

“There are more than enough reasons to cry but laughter keeps the brain full of endorphins and sharpens the mind for the battles ahead.”

Well, today I've had two hydrocodone for pain, and I misread your sentence. I saw it as, ...keeps the brain full of endorphins and sharpens the mind for the bodies ahead.” I thought why would we have bodies, then reread it.

I've read FR most of the day, so who knows how much of it I misread. I just double checked - I am on FR, that much I know is true.

In fact, I want to see protestors being pushed by wind into Tampa Bay by wind and rain. Arm in arm.

I would laugh my head off at that.

C’mon Isaac, Meshak and Abednego!

Last night we had boogers being slotted, cabbies being stuned, with a dose of dusch thrown in on the side. I think it's due to . . .

Why?? Why are people punch drunk around here?

Glad you asked.

Neil Armstrong died - end of an era when America could do anything.
The economy sucks - still
The Republican Convention was delayed - again.
A hurricane is headed toward Louisiana and Mississippi again.
A RINO is our nominee - again.
A Marxist is in the White House - still.
Europe is on the verge of chaos - again.
The government departments - including the Social Security Administration - are buying enough ammo to shoot every American 3 times.
Russia is on the rise - again.
China is flexing its muscles - again.
Muslims are killing Christians - again.
Iran is a problem - again.
Israel is being threatened again.
Etc - again.
Take your pick.

Humor releases the stress.

Political burnout has driven us crazy. Not to worry, though, most of us were certifiable already.

Yep, with enough hydrocodone there is no telling what you'll see. Political ‘bodies’ of dead rats on 11/6 would be a nice start.

Or Neil Young and his brother Angus. Depends on if you watch NBC or not.

Q) A horse walks into a bar, the bartender asks, “Why the long face?”.

A) The horse doesn’t respond because it cannot speak.

No kidding. Earlier this month I had root canal, it was retreated due to failure and finally an apicoectomy where they went in directly through my gum. Endo wanted to make sure I wasn’t in too much pain, and I sure wasn’t...some out there stuff flowed from it as well...I did write some good poetry I must say.

You haven't seen anything until you've seen FR's day devoted to BET.

I spent a few hours this morning listening on youtube to real conservatives making speeches this past year and it set me on fire. I heard Sarah Palin at right online, Michelle Malkin at right online, Dana Loesch at FreePac’s Restoring Love event, Allen West at CPAC, Alan Keyes at the Stand Up For Religious Freedom rally, Michele Bachmann at CPAC, Daniel Hannan at CPAC, Dinesh D’Souza at CPAC, and I ended it with Jerome Corsi doing a interview on The Rusty Humphries Show so I am fired up.

“Yep, with enough hydrocodone there is no telling what you'll see. Political ‘bodies’ of dead rats on 11/6 would be a nice start.”

My left shoulder, rotator cuff area, hurts to the point I can't use that arm to lift anything or move it very much, so I decided to try to dull the pain, hence the hydrocodone. I really did think your word was bodies.

I've been watching the progress of Isaac all day, too. Now, one model of where it might go is more to the west of NO, and straight to my house in Texas.

So many things are uncertain right now, anything can happen. Last I checked today, around 4:30 pm central time, there had been a cluster of 94 earthquakes in California and it wasn't over. Maybe half of California will fall off in the ocean about when the Republican convention starts Tuesday.

Everything is ???????.
