This is the future conservatives want.

Her bail was set at $100 billion, but they couldn’t make change for a $10 trillion bill

Well, when you live in a country that doesn’t have the equivalent of first amendment rights…

Not defending it, but this is a good reminder that US laws do not apply in other countries.

Also, I heard that Mugabe is not really a goblin, but is actually a hagfish in disguise.

Mugabe. Your eyeglass frames suck. So there.

Really? You’re going to ignore the ridiculous, fussy little moustache and go for the frames?


#12

Eyeglass frames are my go-to reference for good/bad taste. Hirsuteness speaks to other things.

All I’ve got is that I once found myself at the intersection of Nelson Mandela and Robert Mugabe Avenues.

I imagine Trump; is on the phone to this guy trying to find out how he can get laws like that here since making it up as you never seems to work for him. (His attempt to have some news show’s "license’ pulled after they honked him off.)
