First!

Good morning, GN! Today is 2/2/22 -- I’m sure it’s significant in some fashion. Four deuces.

Awwwww…cute thread pic, Mac!

Hi, early-rising Sven!

It’s only the middle o the week?!? Sheesh…this feels like a long one.

Sven --

Some good points yesterday re the downside of remote work; it’ll be interesting to see how this affects “corporate culture” over the longer haul.

When I worked at Alesis, 100+ employees ate lunch together at long communal tables. A lot of good came out of different combinations of folks sharing a meal on a daily basis. Myriad problems were identified and/or solved, new products brainstormed, getting to know cow-workers in other departments, etc. (There was an unwritten rule that one did not take a plate back to one’s desk / bench / what-have-you; everyone took a break mid-day and ate together.)

As re Whoopi “Jewface” Goldberg: She made her original moronic gaffe exponentially worse on Colbert that same night and then made it even worse the next day on “The Estro-Hag Hour”.

Suspending her from the show’s being done as a sop (and a way to better assess just how badly she screwed-up long-term in re the show’s viewership / ratings).

Her suspension ought to be from a lamppost, IMO. If ABC / Dismal had any principles (ha!), they’d have fired her live mid-show yesterday.

===========================

To steal someone’s Twitter gag from yesterday: Whoopi Hindenberg.

My “mean boy” addition: “Does the uptown forklift stop here?”

Or as Ace said, “Help! I’ve swallowed Hermann Goering and I can’t get up!”

Hai, Paddy!

I’ve not seen that at Ace’s; high-freakin’-larious.

I think what Goldberg said was pretty equivalent to claiming that Jim Crow laws and lynchings of blacks had nothing to do with race; they were just man’s inhumanity to man.

Imagine if some whitey / cracker / ofay / Mr. Charlie (or Miss Ann) had said that on “The View”.

Happy Wednesday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Sven-the-First, and Fatwa!

It’s only the middle o the week?!? Sheesh…this feels like a long one.

Every day this week I’ve been thinking it can’t only be [fill in the day].

Sven -- great video! Thanks!

Hi, Paddy.

Frickin’ Santa Ana winds picking up again. Really tired of them.

I know. Our sinuses (sinii?) are begging for mercy.

I read that Whoopi is upset over her suspension. Heck, I wouldn’t mind a two-week vacation even without pay.
