Recently the news has been so scary, we have been struggling to laugh at even the Donald. His press “conferences”, command of the English language (or lack thereof), posturing and ridiculous hair are usually hilarious, (while simultaneously terrifying), but nothing compares to yesterdays news. In fact, we are convinced that Monty Python hijacked the news on the 19th of April 2017, much to my and I am sure everyones delight.
The sight of Donald signing (I’m sure he calls it “autographing”) a childs hat and then throwing it into the crowd had all the comedic elements and timing that any member of the cult comedy crew would have been proud of. If anyone out there has an opposite camera angle which has the childs expression as he does it, we will pay you handsomely. Priceless.
After I had recovered from the agony of a good laugh with two broken ribs, (not a laughing matter by the way), we are told that the US “armada” heading to North Korea is seen going in the opposite direction (spotted on a Southernly course to Australia and not sailing North to North Korea).
Then just days after images of a bloodied United Airlines passenger go viral, after over zealous (no doubt now ex) employees, beat the living hell out of one of their customers, they are in the news again for another excellent piece of customer relations.
A bridal couple on a United Airlines flight, on their way to their own wedding no less, were escorted from the plane after U.A. called the US Marshall’s to remove the couple because basically they were not sitting in their allocated seats. Gratis gin and tonics on British Airways anyone ?
All of this, combined with the usual media bollocks such as the Daily Mail quoting a medical report from a Latvian university which doesn’t exist and Fox News retweeting an Associated Press article just a minute later, but still managing to slip an “Allahu Akhbar” within the 140 characters, I really hope my ribs heal quickly as my sides are splitting and I can’t take much more. You couldn’t make this shit up.
