Hallelujah, Leonard Cohen, 1984
This popped up on Facebook early this morning … I re-post it here but edited to be family friendly …
“Imagine if 10 years ago you were approached by a time traveler and he was like: “Look, I don’t have much time to explain, all I can tell you is that the year 2020 is going to be wild!
You know Donald Trump, the star of the apprentice? Well he’s the president of the United States and at the beginning of 2020 he gets into a Twitter beef with Iran that almost starts world war 3.
Australia catches fire and a woman tries to save it by selling pictures of her tits.
Kobe Bryant dies in a helicopter crash. Half the world is devastated, the other half just makes screwed up memes. Tom Brady leaves the Patriots to play for the Buccaneers and just when the world starts recovering from the loss of Kobe some dude in China eats a frigging bat and starts a global pandemic that specifically kills old people and asthmatics.
The one thing everyone seems to agree on is that the only way to survive is by hoarding toilet paper. Grocery stores are ransacked and Charmin ultra soft essentially replaces the dollar as the United States official currency.
Eventually as hysteria grows, world governments are forced to shut the entire planet down and lock everyone in their houses and….. the only person that can keep the people from completely losing their frigging minds and starting a huge riot is a homosexual gun toting Oklahoma man with two husband’s, a meth addiction, and 223 pet tigers…
And that was all before Spring!!!!!!!!!!”
Well! On that note
I wonder what today will bring, as we continue to “work from home”, as we have been doing for 13 years now. What’s the big deal?
