Jesus is Lord. Not a swear word.

Saw this written on the side of a tractor-trailer, and two things occurred to me. The first was that it looks like it should rhyme but it doesn’t, which is strangely disappointing. Secondly, what do you suppose is being hauled around in a rig bearing that kind of message? Rulers to rap the wrists of heathens? Soap with which to wash out your potty mouth?

Groundhog predicts six more weeks

Pudgy little son of a … But no. I shan’t direct my wrath at an animal who is misused to begin with. Better to focus it on the dimwits who invented this miserable tradition in the first place. An animal who is sprung from a cage and released to the many-eyed gaze of the news cameras will always try to run and hide. Someone ought to teach that creature judo. Kee-ya! Watcha! Aiyee!
