And Now, for Something Completely Different

Two topics today, completely unrelated to home renovations. Also unrelated to each other, but also related to each other. Makes no sense? It will.

First, the company I work for finally took delivery of the remaining Christmas gifts that were given out to employees in December. In December we were given a couple of games, a big tin of popcorn, and a check. We were told there were to be more games, but they couldn't get 300+ copies of each in time, so they'd come later. Today was later. Catchphrase and the DVD version of Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader.

While looking at the DVD box for "5th Grader", I noticed something:

Quite honestly, if you look at a little box and expect there to be a DVD player or a TV in the box with the DVD, you are barely smart enough to be considered human, much less smarter than a 5th grader.

It's sad that we actually need disclaimers on stuff like this...

Rant #2: today was the primary election in Wisconsin, and I am sure I am not alone in saying this: "Dear politicians, now that you're done telling us how your opponent is a big fat smelly liar who molests chipmunks, please get the hell out of our state and take your TV and print ads with you."

How are these unrelated topics related? Because politicians keep treating us like we're all 5th graders. Forget the issues, it's all about popularity and soundbites.

The main one which bugs me for some stupid reason was watching Hillary a few days ago talking to a local Wisconsin reporter, blathering on and on about how she went to the Wisconsin Dells when she was younger. Whoop-de-do. So did I, so maybe I should be a write-in contestant in the state.

Blah blah blah, I like cheese, vote for me.
