Have You Seen My Clapper?

Did you see that Big Guy just named a new Director of National Intelligence?

ClapperIt’s retired Air Force Lt. Gen. James R. Clapper Jr.. I think he’s probably best known as the inventor of the world famous hand activated on/off switch, as seen on tee vee.

Visiting dignitaries and celebrities:

Shut up and sing! Or write. Or whatever it is you do.

Natural disasters:

iceland volcano Shut off the damn volcano!

un-natural disasters:

sestak Shut your damn mouth!

bp oil spill Shut off the damn leak!

Wow! This was an ingenious appointment. Planned future applications include shutting down North Korean and Iranian nuclear programs, all hostile rightwing internet sites, FOX news, Rush Limbaugh and talk radio.

Lady M also thinks it will be useful around here.
