He didn't like the casserole
And he didn't like my cake,
He said my biscuits were too hard
Not like his mother used to make.
I didn't perk the coffee right
He didn't like the stew,
I didn't mend his socks
The way his mother used to do.
I pondered for an answer
I was looking for a clue.
Then I turned around and
smacked the shit out of him...
Like his mother used to do.

'Made in China? I Had a Dream'
Martin or Mao? The new Martin Luther King monument, which opens this week, was made in China. Is it just us, or doesn't this seem like folly?
King's confrontational, crossed-arms-pose makes him look like a prison warden, rather than the gentle, non-violent person he was. Imagine Gandhi or Mandela being posed this way. Well, no way.
King's family charged the memorial commission $800,000 for the use of his words and image. The Jefferson and Lincoln families must be spinning in their graves over this family, whose uncommon greed is a common vice.
With 38,929,319 Blacks in America, they could not find just one capable of creating a memorial for one of our nation's most courageous leaders?
The complete memorial shown below:
"The Tea Party can go straight to hell."
Ladies first ... After you, Maxine.
in the Washington Monument ...
'It wouldn't be Friday without the Follies.'
