Friday Funhouse 5: Pharma Bro

usa-congress-shkreli

Good morning, Miss.  Can I help you, Son?  Sixteen today and up for fun.  I’m a big boy now or so they say, so if you’ll serve, I’ll be on my way.  Welcome to the House of Fun!

By Trump-era standards, this seemed a comparatively uneventful week.  Hillary Clinton embarked on a public sulking tour to promote her new book while the anthropomorphic toxic waste dump to whom she lost the election continued to give us perpetual reminders about why a sulking, scapegoating closet Neocon in a pant suit would have been a far superior Commander-in-Chief.  This just served to reinforce my opinion that although I understand people’s aversions to Mrs. Clinton, I cannot accept or respect anyone’s choice to have voted for her despicable psychopathic rival.  The earth continued to scream its desperate disapproval of our behavior towards it with yet another mega-storm and those with the power to begin reversing the effects of global warming reacted once again by sticking their fingers in their ears and singing, “Nonny-nonny-boo-boo!”  or worse, blaming gay people for their part in creating increasingly dangerous weather systems off the coast of Africa.  Same old, same old.  Except:

Smug, self-satisfied human pubic louse Martin Shkreli had his bail revoked and was sent to prison last night to await sentencing.  No matter how much of a drag today might turn out to be, the fact that this asswipe’s day will be so much worse fills me with joy.

This weekend, I’ll be posting the results of the mind experiment, such as they are.  I say “such as they are” not because anything was lacking in the responses I received but because of course, any information obtained from what was essentially an online survey cannot yield any conclusive findings, though it did point to some interesting possibilities that I will explain in the summary.  Thanks again to everyone who participated.  As a token of my appreciation, here’s this:

  1. Nice weekly wrap-up. As you know, Shkreli got his parole revoked because he asked social media followers to yank a hair off Mrs. Clinton’s head during her book tour…with follicle. Secret Service took that as a threat. And what? Raising the cost of cancer medicine to like a million dollars a pill is not a threat? Oh well. That’s justice! Just sayin.

  2. I’m glad I’m not the only one to notice the rather tame week the iPOTUS* posted. He must be bursting at the seams to say something stupid. I wonder if, when he gets up to pee in the night, he just automatically starts blurting out dumb-speak like some lame form of tourette’s. “#MAGA!” “BUILD A WALL” “LOCK HER UP!” back and forth from the West Wing john.

    Throughout the 18 months leading to the election I told everyone who would listen that Hillary Clinton was the 2nd worst choice for president, ever. The first is obvious; we see that one every day. I was 99.9% for #AnyoneElse and .01% for the first woman president ever. Call me a softie, I don’t care.

    Somewhere in my overtaxed week I missed the Shkreli news. Thanks for that. See, that’s why I come to the funhouse. Not only do you entertain, but you enlighten. Keep up the good work, sir … you’re making the internet great again. 😎 “#MIGA!”

    *choose your own i-word. I read it as “idiotPOTUS” every time.
