Happy Friday, Wheelizens!

Bug pastry…nom nom NO!

Haven’t the citizens of Cleveland suffered enough?

Hey…I only lived there for four out of the past forty-one years; they got off relatively easy.

And speaking of Cleveland, turns out their Trump statue appeared in Cleveland Heights in Coventry Village…the shopping area just a couple of blocks from where my apartment there was located. (And which was a major part of my growing-up.)

Said statue was also disappeared before any authorities could cart it off; I imagine it’ll make another appearance somewhere in NE Ohio.

Happy Friday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa!

Mac -- no. Just. no.

Think of all the possibilities that missing Trump statue represents -- the locations it could appear at. Weddings, bar mitzvahs, mall openings, police academy graduations, Westboro Baptist Church.

Hai, Paddy!

Hee!

Read that the Drumpf statue in S.F. was festooned with Mexican clothing.

Actually, it looked like Trump in a serape and Mexican hat. 👿

Just got back from teh weekly Waddlemart run.

Really hate when the corporate merchandising people decree that categories of stuff ought to be shuffled around. I wonder how much of that annoying carp actually boosts sales vs. consisting of merchandising people justifying their jobs.

As a customer, I find it a non-trivial damned nuisance because it interferes with my ability to get in, find the stuff I need and GTFO.

Hai, Mac!

I agree with your “feature, not a bug” statement.

I ceased “impulse purchases” of just about anything by my early twenties (after keeping track of every penny I spent for three months) and got into a strict regimen of budgeting and shopping lists.

I understand a retailer trying to induce shoppers to pick up a little something extra; I just get pissy when their attempts to do so interfere with my interest in getting in and out as quickly as possible.

…”not a bug.” Pun intended, Mac?

Here’s my current favorite:

Ryan Lochte--what a dick:

“It’s traumatic to be out late with your friends in a foreign country — with a language barrier — and have a stranger point a gun at you and demand money to let you leave…”

His whole apology is “what I did was bad, but what them other people did was a lot worse.”

If you’re a drunken a-hole and you destroy somebody’s property for no good reason, you kind of get what you deserve. Too bad about your trauma.

Now if the guy came out and said “I was completely wrong, I apologize for my behavior, it will never happen again, and I am returning to Brazil to face charges” then I would have thought that’s a good man. Made a mistake--owned up to it.

Yeah, Mac: it is embarrassing. The crime is bad enough, although relatively minor on the scale of things, but to then lie about it…that’s just beyond the pale.

I heard one sports talking head saying that well, these are just kids and they made a mistake--let’s move on. Lochte is 32 years old--he isn’t a kid, even if he acted like one.

You know what i wonder about the whole Hillary server thing? Everyone just talks about the emails: what else was on the server?

Yoga routines, Chelsea’s wedding plans, NATO defense strategies, the second set of books for the Clinton Foundation -- you know, nothing important.
