Sense of Humor

Big Guy and I did the national radio address earlier today. Some of you might think that Big O just reads off a piece of paper, but he likes to use me just to practice. And since our weekly TV show airs this Wednesday, we thought this would be a good opportunity to work through some kinks we've been having lately.

Specifically, we just break out into giggling fits over some of the things the Administration folks have him saying. Like this morning, Big Guy was expected to record this with a straight-voice about legislation that required the federal government to pay for what it appropriated: "We need to adhere to the basic principle that new tax or entitlement policies should be paid for, so that government acts the same way any responsible family does in setting its budget."

I mean, really, who's writing this stuff?

  2. TOTUS:

    As a bit of aside, how do you and Big O's Blackberry get along? Do you help Big Guy do his texting or is he winging it on his own?

  3. TOTUS, do you use little face-icons to signal when BO is supposed to smile, frown, or giggle when he's speaking?

    If so, please create, and use frequently, a face-icon for, "D-oh!"----okay? THANKS!

  4. I read your twitter on Swine flu. Is it true that 90% of Mexico's pigs come from the US or do 90% of our pigs come from Mexico?

  5. WHOA!

    Wouldja look at that big donkey's teeth. "Heee, haaaw! Heeee, haaaawwwwwww!"

    Ugh.

    Just like Pinnochio when he changed from a lying wooden puppet into a donkey on "Pleasure Island." If you recall...... Pinnochio was a smoker, too.

    [What a contrast to President Bush:

    Bush: church going, wholesome White House parties, physically robust, bright, open, patriotic, friendly, natural born American

    B. Hussein: skips church, decadent parties, physically effete, dull, deceitful and secretive, UNpatriotic, arrogant, natural born Kenyan]

  7. Are Marxist Muslims immune to the swine flu?

  8. TOTUS, you are so funny!! Keep it comin'!! Also, your posters are very astute. Many good ideas here -- love the frank talk and your terrific insider info. I almost feel connected to POTUS, though he's really more qualified to be Pres. of Kenya or a real Banana Republic. Mr. Soros should have at least found a home grown Marxist for the job. What are your thoughts on that?

  9. TOTUS,
    Which one of you will be scrolling on Wednesday, the handsome double screen or the bloated jumbotron?

  10. AV...are Marxist Muslims immune to the swine flu?...

    Does it strike anyone else as peculiar that this strain of flu reportedly incorporates Avian bird flu with Swine flu from pigs and is transmitted to humans?

    Did we have 'a little bit of help from our friends' here?

    Just sayin'.

  11. Ah Totus, thanks for the inside scoop on the humorous side of politics. I mean really, the government paying for what it spends--just like a family has to budget? What next, doing what's best for the country just like you do for your children?! My sides are still aching!

  12. TOTUS, that picture sure looks like the Grin and Giggle that BG used, when Steve Kroft had to ask him "are you punch drunk?"

    I didn't know if he was practicing to try out for a tooth whitener ad, or showing off his Shark imitation to scare us.

    If we hear the dum-dum, dum-dum, dum-dum music I guess we will know.

    52-Week Bill Announcement






    52-Week Bill Announcement- 4/30/09
    View DefinitionDefinition
    In its refunding announcement on April 30, 2008 the Treasury announced that it will begin issuing 52-week bills every four weeks. Treasury notes are sold at regularly scheduled public auctions. Competitive bids at these auctions determine the interest rate paid on each Treasury note issue. A group of 18 securities dealers (as of September 22, 2008), known as primary dealers, are authorized and obligated to submit competitive tenders at Treasury auctions. Dealers can hold, resell, or trade the securities with other firms. The Treasury usually announces the size, date and time of the monthly two-year note auction on the third or fourth Monday of each month. The auction takes place the following Wednesday and the securities are issued (settled) on the last day of the month. If the last day is a weekend or a holiday, the securities are issued on the first business day of the following month.

    Whoa.

    That's one creative mind. NOW I know where all those zany security words come from. I thought some clever programmer just made some kind of random number generator-based macro. But each one is independently created by one amazing mind. Awesome.
