Past Imperfect

Past Imperfect – #69

Six degrees of snarkeration…

Take 1:

Some people will do anything to get more likes on Facebook.

Take 2:

Congress tries once again to pass any kind of respectable legislation this year.

Take 3:

The revolving door of White House press secretaries tries to put a spin on the latest round of damaging tweets from The Apprentice.

Take 4:

Lady Aft: “Hey, I look just like one of the daughters on Modern Family!”

Lady Fore: “And I look just like that gal on Felicity and The Americans!”

Ledge: “And I look just like that wall that Mexico is never going to pay for!”

Take 5:

It’s all fun and games until somebody breaks a heel.

Take 6:

Come and listen to my story about a man named Cheeto Head

A poor millionaire, always kept his family in the red

And then one day he was shoutin’ at some fools

And up through the ground came some bubblin’ tools

Tea Party that is, black goals, Texas seed

Well the first thing you know ole Trump’s a president

The kinfolk said “Trump, hire us to represent!”

Said “Washington is the place we ought to be”

So they loaded up the truck and they moved to D.C.

Swamp, that is. Lobbyin’ pools, lots of bars

Well now it’s time to say goodbye to Head and all his kin

And they would like to flip you off for investigatin’ him

You’re all invited back next week to this locality

To have a heapin’ helpin’ of our instability

Narcissism that is. Set a spell, turn your logic off.

Y’all come back now, ya hear?


There, now. I politely offered narrative options for most everyone across the political spectrum, even those who don’t vote. Of course, my riff on The Beverly Hillbillies theme is what will stick in your mind. And I’m fine with that.

  1. New (and possibly even more upmarket) French neighbours despair at crazed English womans disgraceful snorts. English woman pleads Trump satire. All is well *no lemons in my backyard* 😅

  2. Thank you for a laugh on what is a sort of grim day. I’m going to re-post this, because there’s LOTS of folks who would benefit from a laugh and that poem/song/lyric hijack is priceless and must be shared!
