Weekend (Gastronomical) Dreams

Food connoisseur’s, or “foodies”, can typically salivate at the drop of a hat when the mention of food, a picture of food, a hint of a whiff of a tomato base percolating somewhere, or even a when a recipe of some never before tried concoction shows up on their dumbphones – all rational thought is cast aside as they become transfixed, tastebuds on alert, with thoughts of any of life’s complexities and tribulations being completely abandoned as they fantasize of some morsel of savory or sugary delights that will provide orgasmic treats never before experienced.

The folks as Newsweek must be closet foodies, or just completely bored drones, posting the following stupid thing:

Trump Ate Sensitive Document After Cohen Meting, Former White House Aide Claims

former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman has said she walked in on President Donald Trump eating paper after a meeting with lawyer Michael Cohen, in what she believed was an effort to destroy sensitive information.

…According to an excerpt of the book obtained by The Washington Post, Newman recalls, “I saw him put a note in his mouth. Since Trump was ever the germaphobe, I was shocked he appeared to be chewing and swallowing the paper. It must have been something very, very sensitive.” – via newsweek.com

The weekends in America can be so boring. Dumb NFL pre-season games to waste a couple of hours watching, the typically bad movie and TV offerings, jaunts to some latest farm-to-table restaurant that is anything but that and articles on the gastronomical habits of the guy with orange hair that just might lead to his impeachment – the weekend dreams of those disengaged from reality must make the gods weep.

A nation, or rather a nation of insouciant leaders and media whores, salivating over absolute Russiaphobia nonsense, in order, in their small minds, to rid the world of a menace, so that he might be replaced with a menace of their own choosing, is as deranged as it gets.

Bullshit amplimeterAs this writer approaches the final third of his life (if I’m UNfortunate enough to get through it) – everything must be filtered through the Bullshit meter.

Chances are, though I’m not 100% sure, that when the grand comedy is over, that God, the gods or whatever comedians started all this – that they won’t be laughing with us as we try to come up with excuses of how we succumbed to the depravity of the hosreshit offerings we were presented with during ‘our time’ on this apple tart of insanity.

That meeting with the gods, as we let loose our final breath, might be a bit awkward as our lives filter through memory holes, with the gods asking, why.  Why did you choose to follow the paths of laziness, complacency, apathy, unkindness, mental brain farts when all we have provided showed you otherwise?

As the heavenly hosts possess the ultimate bullshit meter, universal truth will not be able to be bypassed when our time comes.

And as we try to scam the gods that we were trying to rid the planet of a guy who purportedly ate paper in order to destroy sensitive evidence, the gods reply back to us might be the simple – and how did that help your neighbor, your friend, your loved one or relative get through the everyday tragedies they faced?

  1. What a joke! I think there are fair criticisms to be made of Trump, but the idea of him actually EATING paper is so absurd. Does anyone actually believe such a stupid idea?! (Sadly, I’m sure they do… now I’m going to go watch some nice documentaries on Russian TV in order to shield myself from the idiocy the American media spouts every day!)
