    Alas, not going to happen. The Times sez What’s a ‘Covfefe’? Trump Tweet Unites a Bewildered Nation (with a "curated" selection of responses) and he is enjoying the fun as well, not gonna delete or correct it now, tweeted early this morn:

     

    Who can figure out the true meaning of "covfefe" ??? Enjoy!

    To be fair, Alan Moore's swamp thing regenerates after this episode as well... 



    PS Bravo, Obey. And thanks for the link to Solnit's delightful essay.


    The Solnit piece captures the character of a few people I've met in business. So well done.


    LOL. Yes that would be more Trumpish stylistically. 


    Oh freddled gruntbuggly? thy micturations are to me/ As plurdled gabbleblotchits on a lurgid bee. 


    Vive le Covfefe!

    "President Trump has a magnetic personality and exudes positive energy, which is infectious to those around him. He has an unparalleled ability to communicate with people, whether he is speaking to a room of three or an arena of 30,000. He has built great relationships throughout his life and treats everyone with respect. He is brilliant with a great sense of humor … and an amazing ability to make people feel special and aspire to be more than even they thought possible."

    The Great Leader of Greatness is the Greatest!!! Such huge hands too


    Well, what is a mother to do?

    I hereby render unto Obey the Dayly Blog of the Day/Week/Month for this here Dagblog site, given to all of Obey from all of me.

    hahhaahahahahhahahaha

    Nice way to end a strange month, for sure.


    I'm deeply honored Sir Day! Glad you liked it. A strange week/month/year indeed! It's doing strange things to my brain at least.


    The story about the beetle reminded me of something a camper-friend told me:

    He was camping out west and observed this kid watching a spider spin a web between two small plants on the ground.  He kept describing his wonderment to his father, who in a very loud New Yorker accent kep telling him to stop -- the spider was probably poisonous and he better wash his hands before he gets anywhere near his mother.  

    So this went along for several minutes.  Finally the kid's father convinced him to join the parents as they ate some sandwiches.  My friend was marveling at the beauty of the child's natural curiosity about what he had seen.

    Then the little angel stood up and stomped on the spider and walked away.

    If you subtract the innocent curiosity part, it is the donald to a TEE.  Sad


    Great story, thanks! I wonder if Donald's parents deliberately did not teach him any manners or values, thinking it might serve him well in life to go through it like a petulant 6 year old. His rejection of the Paris agreement seems like an instance of acting out. With no one willing and able to stop him. I've read about a lot of characters from history but this is really a uniquely shitty human being in a uniquely powerful position. It would be tragic if it weren't infuriating. 


    This is so good, well played Obey, well played.


    Glad you liked it TMac!


    You are the man, Obey. 

    From the astonishingly great Alan Moore, and his less-famous, but staggeringly good series wherein my own personal god, Swamp Thing, was created? 

    Awesome.

     

    Q

     


    Hey Q! 

    It is thanks to you that I have Alan Moore up there on my shelf next to Homer and Sophocles.
