Too many words clogging such a tiny mind. . . . Please come CAPTION Sean Hannity!!!


Sean ("My mother gave me her drawers 'cause of family values&quot Hannity is saying: "That's right, fellow Americans, Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson was just expressing sentiments as American as Mom, apple-pie, and the House Un-American Activities Committee."

Queen of the landfill!!! . . . Please come CAPTION Sarah Palin!!!

Sarah ("Oxycontin speaks to me in tongues&quot Palin is saying: "For crying out loud, what have we come to??? . . . A star of a beloved reality show, because he's a man of principle, says a few careless things that have been on his mind, and the entire left in in a roar, calling for his job, trying to take away his career! . . . Can you imagine such a thing?!?!"


The above CAPTION based on Palin's defense of Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson's bigoted comments about entire classes of people based upon the vile "foundation" of prejudice than a month after Martin Bashir's comments about her, based on his repulsion of Palin's comparing Obamacare to slavery, for which she demanded his firing.

Here's a link to a decent DU story on it:

Which comes last? Chicken or egg? . . . Please come CAPTION Steve Doocy!!!!

Steve Doocy is saying "You're right, Governor. How dare they express dislike for someone's heartfelt disgust!!! . . . Phil Robertson from Duck Dynasty should be considered extremely tolerant and accepting by comparison! . . . Imagine such hatred! . . . Imagine such intolerance! . . . And they call themselves progressives!"


The above CAPTION is somewhat closely based on the following Media Matters story:

Cruel and inhuman punishment! . . . Please come CAPTION Forbes's John Tamny!!!!!

John ("Are there no poor houses? Are there no soup lines?&quot Tamny is saying: "Giving people food stamps is just like handing them poison, it's literally like shooting them in the middle of the forehead. . . . Don't you see, Jessica? If people are starving in the streets, private and religious charities will re-activate and fill in the breach. . . . By handing out food stamp, you are discouraging private and religious charities, which would be like killing the people you're trying to help, like government always does as part of an over-all story in the way of understanding what's indeed going horribly wrong. . .. See?. . . . It's all very clear."


The above CAPTION is somewhat based on the following Media Matters story taken from the Daily Show:

December 18, 2013

"If I was stupid, I'd know it!" . . . Please come CAPTION Bill O'Reilly!!!!

Bill ("I like lots of sauce with my falafel. How 'bout you?) O'Reilly just finished saying, "Of course Santa is white and it's no way racist to point this out. . . . It's just like Tojo is yellow, and Sambo is black, Krauts are all blonde, and The Jolly Green Giant is . . . what color? . . . wait for it . . . you got it! . . .green! . . . We all know that! . . . Just how is that racist, I'd like to know!"

Who put the stench in stink? . . . Please come CAPTION Sean Hannity!!!

Sean (Cousin to Hammerhead) Hannity is saying, "I don't care if The Pope wants to help the poor, if he wants to argue about economic inequality, but for him to attack unfettered Capitalism, then with all due respect, and I mean this as a deeply devout Catholic, he's a Commie!!!!!"


The above CAPTION is based (rather too closely for the comfort of our nation) upon the following Media Matters story:

December 16, 2013

"Who says they're opposites?" . . . Please come CAPTION Pope Francis and Rush Limbaugh!!!

Pope Francis is saying, "I disagree with those who call me a Marxist. . . . I'm not, but they will still disagree with me, I know. . . . All men can have disagreements, but men of peace and good will can always wish the best for those who disagree with them, hoping to persuade them with love, and change their minds with peaceful good cheer."

Rush Limbaugh is saying, "That Commie rat, that Stalinist thug! . . . How can he call it a disagreement, for Christ's sake? . . . He had the audacity to castigate Capitalism! . . . Imagine!!! . . . And then he tried to kidnap our feelings of righteous indignation by demanding that we be of good will. . . . Well, I'll give him my good will, but it will be dripping with fecal matter. . . I hope his soul burns in the depths of the deepest hell. . . . So much for good will, you red skunk!"


The above CAPTION was loosely based on a series of articles summarized at Media Matters:

December 15, 2013

"Another Twinkee is a terrible thing to waste!" . . . Please come CAPTION Rush Limbaugh!!!!

Rush ("Are you going to eat that?&quot Limbaugh is saying: "Listen, if Santa's not white, then I'm not the most brilliant communication specialist of all time, . . . if Santa's not white then I'm not the most objective human with the greatest intelligence ever measured, . . if Santa's not white, then I'm not the wisest, most humble . . .[blah, blah, blah]!"


The above CAPTION is loosely based on the following Media Matters story:


December 14, 2013

"It's absurd to call me a racist!" . . . Please come CAPTION Megyn Kelly!!!

Megyn ("Let me check the facts first just so I don't run into them&quot Kelly is saying: "Of course Santa Claus is white!!! . . . Just how is that racist? . . . I think it's racist to deny Santa Claus is white!!! . . . That's like saying Jose is not a Mexican or Charlie is not Vietnamese. . . . Just how is that racist, I'd like to know."


The above CAPTION is loosely based on (but tightly bound to) the following Media Matters story:

December 13, 2013

"Everytime I open my mouth, my face disappears." . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald ("F*ck the facts!&quot Trump is saying, "Look, Steve, I'm not saying anything. . . . It just seems like a hell of a coincidence that Hawaii's Health Director who authorized the release of Obama's so called birth certificate, Loretta Fuddy (and doesn't that name sound like it was invented in some a smoke filled, back room!) , was the only person to die in the plane crash! . . . Just like I think it's a hell of a coincidence his great aunt back in Kenya remembers him being born there but the Hawaiian newspapers list his birth there. . . . And have you ever noticed how the President's lower lip quivers just a bit when he mentions Kenya? . . . But again, I'm not claiming anything, I just saying . . ."


The above CAPTION is loosely based on the following Huffington Post story:

About skip fox

I am retired, now a professor emeritus at University of Louisiana at Lafayette, where I taught in the English department for 37 years. I've written 4 chapbooks and 5 full-sized books (all listed as poetry though many include other genres as well), including _Sheer Indefinite: Selected Poems, 1991-2012 (Univ. of New Orleans Press, 2012). I've also written a 500+ page bibliography of three contemporary poets: Robert Creeley, Ed Dorn, and Robert Duncan. I am writing now, both fiction and poetry, more now than ever. My first vote for President of the United States was for Dick Gregory in 1968 (Bowling Green, Ohio). Favorite quote: "It's easy to be an idealist if you don't have to mind the evidence, but no one said it was supposed to be easy" (Richard LaPauvre).
