Have a long drink of fine wine from the bottle of Klein.

…or have it all spill in your lap because this container can only hold Klein wine, not fine wine.

Klein wine, traditionally, is liquid on one side and solid on the other.

That’s a gas.

I think it’s best to hold off on any spelunking expeditions until after monsoon season.

How long before we see a youtube of skydivers jumping out into the top of a tornado funnel?

I wonder if we can borrow it for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade?

Not a good idea.

What if Baby Trump makes a doodie in his diaper during the parade?

And, what if it’s anchored to a float representing all of U.S. allies . . . you know, and the diaper doesn’t catch everything.

There doesn’t appear to be any limits to the Disruptor-in-Chief’s delusions of grandeur.

He says “I think they like me there” in the UK, despite the baby-Trump balloon, widespread protests, and the fact that the visit is billed as a ‘working visit’ rather than being given the usual honour of a full state visit. 

He claims personal credit and seeks praise for the allied nations’ commitments to NATO, when they have simply reaffirmed their previous and ongoing commitments and goals.  An organization which he derides one day and praises the next.

It is beyond his ability to see that world leaders have had no choice but to show a certain degree of ‘respect’ because of the office he holds, but that they have nothing but disdain for the man who holds it.  That he is being humoured, cajoled and managed.

If only we could convince him that he is well liked on the moon; I don’t expect there would be much difficultly in allocating a percentage of the international GDP to send him there.

Not to spoil the moon, how about St. Helena, or a penguin colony in Antarctica?  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BbM7cM2B-ug  -  (use earphones)

Spring air - -
Woven moon
and plum scent.  -  (Basho)

Hmm ... not sure if this would be a nice thing to do to penguins, but then again, Trump’s ego would most likely interpret their vocalizations to be cheers which would keep him happy there.
