THE SPHINX—GOOD IDEA, BUT MISGUIDED

The Editor:  What is a good idea. LL ?

Cough, Cough Cat:  Volkswagen tested the emissions of one of its cars by letting it run in a closed room with ten ( 10 ) monkeys.

https://www.upi.com/Top_News/US/2018/01/28/Volkswagen-apologizes-for-rigging-data-using-monkeys-in-diesel-emissions-test/2681517183995/?utm_source=sec&utm_campaign=sl&utm_medium=1

The misguided part was that they should have used politicians as the test subjects.  The Sphinx has long advocated that Roundup and other chemicals should be tested on their employees, FDA employees, and EPA employees for five ( 5 ) years before being certified as safe.   Speaking of safe, Paris will have fewer rats in a day or so.

This fish could crawl to a cleaner city,  probably the nearest one would be in Switzerland.

Here is a good idea that didn’t work out.

Mardi Gras and Margarita day are Amigo’s favorite.  This is the slogan of Mardi Gras.  The beads seem to be unimportant.  Here is Al Franken throwing beads last year.

THE SPHINX—SAND CASTLES , ICE SCULPTURES, AND A BIG SCANDAL

The Editor:   What is the story of Ice Sculptures and Sand Castles, LL ?

Temporary Cat:  It is unbelievable that people make such pretty things to be melted or washed away.

My favorite, most recent, sand sculpture was of Chris Christie.  New Jersey barely had enough sand.

I hope no one ever says…”its just a dog” to me ever again. Now saying, “he is just a liberal or she is just a democrat”…….no problem….I agree!
