Animal’s Hump Day News

Happy Hump Day!

Well, sort of.  I’m not certain how hump day works when this Mittwoch is also basically this week’s Monday.  Regardless, let’s move along.  First up, thanks once again to The Other McCain for our first 2019 Rule Five links!

So let’s look at some 2018 highlights:

Here from PJMedia are the 20 Worst Quotes of 2018.  My favorite:  “Almost every single person I’ve ever heard of with an AR-15 has been a mass murderer.” — Author Nina Burleigh.  There are, best guess, somewhere between 10 and 20 million AR-pattern rifles in the United States.  Since we can only conclude that there have not been between 10 and 20 million mass murders, we can only assume that “Author” Nina Burleigh is a hyperbolic horse’s ass.

Speaking of horseshit:  “Psychic” Nikki, whoever that is, has some predictions for 2019.  As is normally the case with this kind of crap, her “predictions” are so vague as to be meaningless.   Except this one:  And if we can’t find someone on this planet to be nice to, perhaps someone from somewhere else will come into our lives. “…You’re going to hear more voices coming from outer space.” And not just voices, either. Psychic Nikki is certain of that. “We’re going to see more UFOs coming to earth… I wouldn’t be surprised if a spaceship landed by the end of 2019, 2020 for sure. I don’t think it’s going to be anything to be scared of. I just think there’s another planet like us out there.”

I can make a prediction too:  This won’t happen.  But the kind of nitwits that pay attention to “psychics” don’t notice when they’re wrong.

Here from Campus Reform are the five craziest college campus stories of 2018.

Of course, you can’t overlook Dave Barry’s Year in Review.

And, here, from the Washington Examiner, are the top five worst journalistic fuckups of 2018.  The worst, of course?  The media’s handling of the Justice Kavanaugh confirmation hearings, and what a travesty that was.

Anyway, work beckons; Q1 2019 lies ahead, and it’s going to be busy.  Watch these virtual pages for more of all you’ve come to expect, True Believers!  You ain’t seen nothin’ yet.
