Here’s a bit of “light humor” for a Sunday afternoon. Whether any of these news tidbits actually tickle your funny bone is another matter.

*Did you know that members of Congress are UNDERPAID? That’s what a Democrat congressman from Virginia asserted last week. Rep. Jim Moran said this in an interview with CQ Roll Call:

“I think the American people should know the members of Congress are underpaid. I understand that it’s widely felt they underperform, but the fact is that this is the board of directors for the largest economic entity in the world.”

See: http://onpolitics.usatoday.com/2014/04/04/jim-moran-congress-underpaid/

So despite an acknowledgement that they’re doing a lousy job, we should pay them more just because they’re doing it for a really big country? ONLY IN AMERICA!

*Las Vegas middle schools are having a problem on Fridays. The problem has to do with unusual “student activity” which undoubtedly has a basis in cultural changes as amplified by the media. Hopefully this activity will not catch on around here:

*And back to the U.S. Congress as reported by USATODAY.com:

“Rep. Mark Sanford, R-S.C., appears to have completed an 18-month transformation from irresistible joke to immovable incumbent.

As governor, he became a staple of late night comedians in 2009 when he famously disappeared from the Statehouse to visit his mistress in Argentina while his staff told reporters he was hiking the Appalachian Trail.

Last year, he staged an improbable comeback, running for the U.S. House seat he had held before being elected governor. An underdog at the outset, he ultimately won a special election, beating out Elizabeth Colbert Busch, the sister of comedian Steven Colbert.

Sanford has no opposition for re-election in either the GOP primary or the general election in November. March 30 was the filing deadline for South Carolina candidates and none of either party filed in Sanford’s district. As the National Review points out, the only remaining threat to Sanford would be a late filing by an independent candidate.”

See: http://onpolitics.usatoday.com/2014/03/31/once-disgraced-mark-sanford-is-now-unopposed/

So another Republican – albeit a “disgraced one” - is riding high this election cycle. He probably won’t be the last.

Sebe. Being a Northerner (notice I did not say YANKEE) you might need to be informed about the House District that Sanford represents in S.C.

Hint: Ever seen the movie Deliverance?
I am sure you get my drift.

Also, those folks that can find a voting booth usually take their sister (sweetheart) with them and would vote for a talking Goat as long as the goat only turned right.

Yes - but not too long ago the Dems were rejoicing Sanford's demise - and now he's back, apparently stronger than ever. There's got to be some humor there somewhere.

...and speaking of humor, here's a few more:

*First we have nursing home strippers gone wild:

*Then we have the personification of Mrs. Gump's declaration that "stupid is as stupid does":

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/natio...

*Finally, we have the school kids taking to social media to complain about the First Lady's lunch menu:

(I suppose the last one isn't really funny - just sad....)
