What’s the frequency, Covfefe?

RD’s is soaking up the long days of sunlight, dancing like Michael Stipe and practicing her air guitar. 

Gonna stay up all night. 

BiFF: Inconceivable?

Trump administration aims to maximize unintended pregnancies by empowering women to buy their own birth control! 

Make Americans First!

So funny I forgot to laugh. 

I’m a rebel just for kicks 

Not really. I’m a rebel for real. 

Take a stand. Fight back. 

*********************************

Dang!  I missed the “covfefe” kerfuffle on Twitter

“Covfefe,” said Tasneem Raja, a journalist, perhaps chafing at the growing communal giddiness. “There, I participated.”
Eventually, the jokes lurched into delirium. Twitter users held forth on the former F.B.I. director James Covfefe. They pledged to order a grande covfefe during their next Starbucks runs. They announced they had at last discovered what Bill Murray whispered to Scarlett Johansson at the end of “Lost in Translation.”
And as the hour wore on, stragglers turned their lonely eyes to the only account that could save them.

“Help, @MerriamWebster,” pleaded Jessica Taylor, a reporter at N.P.R., one of several to make the request.
The dictionary obliged.
“Wakes up. Checks Twitter. Uh…” it began. “Regrets checking Twitter. Goes back to bed.”
