How to make Texas Toast
Below is a joke I posted on a popular internet humor site a few days ago.
You’ll usually find funny stuff there, and at random times it may even be from me. That being said, and not just because it’s mine, I especially liked this one:
“Texas Governor Rick Perry has a difficult decision to make, stay the course using only prayer to fight those wild fires that are sweeping across his state, or find some way to justify to his tea party base that using taxes is necessary to fund the fire department.
If he goes one way he may lose votes, if he goes the other he may lose voters. This could get interesting, be sure to bring marshmallows to the next town hall meeting. Assuming there’s still a town hall to hold it in.”
My understanding is that it’s been about a year of constant prairie fires converting Texas into one huge open air BBQ, so if it’s true that all prayers are answered, then on occasion the answer must be either “No” or “Come back later, I’m busy”, or maybe “Get outa here kid, ya bother me”.
In what might be the most ironic update of the year, reports in today’s (9-7-11) L.A. Times say that Governor Perry is now complaining that the Federal Government is dragging its feet in providing assistance to Texas, and that FEMA, one of the same parts of the Fed that he has tried to kill off, is not doing all that it could.
