So, you had a little snow over Christmas?
Christmas in Afghanistan.
No room in the manger.

A clearly inebriated woman, stark naked, jumped into a taxi in New York City and laid down on the back seat.
The cab driver, a Jewish gentleman, opened his eyes wide and stared at the woman. He made no attempt to start the cab.
The woman glared back at him and said, "What's wrong with you, honey? - Haven't you ever seen a naked woman before?"
The Jewish driver answered, "Let me tell you sumsing, lady – I vasn't staring at you like you tink; det vould not be proper vair I come from."
The drunk woman giggled and responded, "Well, if you're not staring at my ass sweetie, what are you doing then?"
He paused a moment, then told her..."Vell, M'am, I am looking and I am looking, and I am tinking to myself,'Vair in da hell is dis lady keeping de money to pay for dis ride?

If you want a friend in Washington, get a dog.
In fact, get two, in case the first one turns on you.
2013 Friday Follies Man of the Year
Tuffy Gessling, the Missouri Rodeo Clown.
In August, Gessling found himself in the center of a national controversy after pictures and video leaked of him, wearing a mask modeled after President Obama’s face and asking spectators at a local rodeo if they wanted to see “Obama run down by a bull.”
The video went viral, sparking outrage across the country and leading to a lifetime ban of Gessling from the state fair. Tuffy even received death threats; full story here.
Gessling has maintained he was only trying to be funny and that he’s performed the same stunt wearing masks of every president throughout the past 15 years.

Three Things Your Follies Editor
Was Wrong About This Year:
1) He never thought they'd elect a pope younger than he is.
2) He was positive these three would have been fired months ago.
Fact: Federal bureaucrat misfits NEVER lose their cushy jobs.
3) He was sure we would never hear of this 5' 10" white basketball player again, after he scored 138 points playing for Grinnell College in Iowa last November.
However, 365 days later in Novermber 2013, Taylor poured in 109 points IN 29 MINUTES. He made 24 3-pointers and 15 of 17 free throws, as his team won 179-104 over Faith Bapist college.
Nevertheless, your editor was right about one thing: Obamacare will be euthanized. However, the Feds will stumble around for a few more years before it is finally repealed, like Prohibition.
And remember, Prohibition was a constitutional amendment, not easy to repeal. A federal law is a snap to repeal. Keep an eye on 2017, when we may have a conservative in the White House. (Sorry Hillary).
Prediction: In 2014 more current health plan policies will be cancelled; taxes and fees, premiums and deductables will be higher.
Doctors will be fewer; plus federal rules will change like a weathervane, blown by politial winds going toward election day.
If His Excellency could make a third inaugural address in 2017:
"Ask not what your government can do for you.
Ask what your government can do to you."
