Not Too Serious Politics
The Parti Rhinocéros or Rhinoceros Party, was a Canadian political party from 1963 to 1993.
Informally called ‘The Rhinos’, the party was started by Jacques Ferron, a Canadian physician and author. The rhinoceros was chosen as their symbol because politicians are: “thick-skinned, slow-moving, dim-witted, can move fast as hell when in danger…”
The organizers said they were Marxist-Lennonist, which was a tip of the hat to Groucho Marx and John Lennon. The party platform was described as being ‘two feet high and made of wood’.

A Clothes Dryer
I saw a cartoon that showed two women standing in the backyard, admiring a nicely pegged line of clothes on a clothesline. The one woman remarks, “It dries the washing using the very latest technology – a combination of solar and wind power.”
How many of you remember using that technology? There was little to nothing blissful about it. It was brutal in the winter, wicked on a windy day, useless when it was raining and shitty when some birds landed on the lines.
I love my dryer…

This Video was especially funny the first time we saw it because we were in Arizona during the storm.
