Happy New Year, 2013!

Happy New Year everyone! We’ve made it through one Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Year and are on to a new one.

So while the world just keeps on turning, I turn back the hands of time and wrap up my year in review with my Best of, July-December edition. Please feel free to add your own favorites to the list.

July: Pay for Play

In which MOTUS learns that both the Big White Calligrapher and the staff “Ethics Advisor” earn more than she does. How can that be ethical?

August: It’s Half Time in America: Are You Feeling Lucky?

In which we assess Big Guy’s ability to move the ball downfield (hint: pretty good, as long as  the “Media is on Deck” wink, wink).

September: a tie, between Howdy, Messina, in which we get into the spirit of the “Meme Messina” moment;

and Hey Obama! Orwell called. He wants 1984 back. In which we watch the developing empty chair meme at the UN.


October: What Didn’t He Know and When Didn’t He Know It?

No further commentary required.



November: Ah, too many to choose from: No Jam Today, It’ll Be a One Term Proposition and Everybody Knows – our musical interlude commemorating the emperor’s win.


Butt my personal favorite was Leaving Las Vegas, With Your Money in which Big Guy auditions for the lead in Godfather IV,

obama why do you disrespect me so "Don't be so f***in' smart. Things could've gone the other way, my little nephew." Sopranos: Season 2, Episode 2: "Do Not Resuscitate"

And wrapping up the year, December also brought a tie between Tea Today, Jam Tomorrow. As Always, and perhaps the post that wraps the year up best: The Lunatics Are In Your “House.”


As witnessed last night, they still are.

Butt hey! Happy 2013! There will always be lunatics, we just need to get back to the habit of locking them up where they’ll no longer be a danger to themselves and others.
