with David Blaska

Can no one rid me of this turbulent weather?

(page 2 of 2)

If you are like me, curious and slightly deranged, you’re asking yourself (possibly out loud) why modern medicine — if it can preserve Nancy Pelosi (she’s almost lifelike) — cannot dig the piece of lead out of the Wilmington woman’s butt.

Is it because the lady can’t log onto the Obamacare website* (*aka “ERROR 404: Page Not Found”) for her newly pre-existing condition? Perhaps her government-issued doctors are waiting for the swelling to go down. Unless the swelling is due to a Super-Sizing diet not approved by The First Lady.

On the other hand, her statement could be an ethnic adage, like the Mafia boss who complains that there is a stone in his shoe and would someone please remove it. In such an instance, one does not yank at the big bosses’ Brioni loafers but, instead, nods discreetly.

In merry olde England, King Henry 2 made a similar comment to his courtiers. “Can no one rid me of this turbulent priest?” Next thing you know, Thomas Becket is getting it in his backside during High Mass, proving once again that the only thing that can stop bad guys with knives is good guys with knives.

Hey Blaska, do your neighbors a favor and go snow blow their driveways. Good practice for the new snowblower.
