It has not slipped our attention that today is special for another less pertinent reason. Today is armistice day in the War on Christmas but the peace is tenuous at best and we don't expect it to last a full year. Yet the spirit of the day infects us like the Mexican pig flu and so we will refrain from our usual cruel and sophomoric attempts at humor at the expense of the overlords.
Instead we will offer advice to one nameless young fellow, or perhaps young lady, we don't know as stupidity and callous disregard for living creatures show no gender preference, who recently queried the following:
i recently got introduced to greyhound racing and i want to know more about the dogs for a while without placing a bet i would love to watch some recent races online so i can familiarise with the dogs.Dear sir, or madam, we suggest you "familiarise" with these fellows, then use your two dollars to start an education fund. It's never too late to pass the sixth grade! Signed: your friends at Ironicus Maximus.
"God Bless Us Everyone," Tiny Tim said. Then whacked old Scrooge in the groin with his crutch. "That's for taking the public option out of the Health Care Reform Bill you old goat." Dickens took that part out of later editions. Anyway, time to meet Lazlo.
Lazlo is so recently come from the benevolent care of the overlords that we know nothing about him except that he is a refugee from Dairlyland along with hundreds of his brothers and sisters.
