THE SPHINX—-ANIMAL AND HUMAN SIMILARITIES

_______________________________________________________________________

Al should put this with Obama’s politically correct Nobel Peace Prize.  They are just ” participation prizes “.

The Editor:  Are animals and humans similar, LL ?

Synonymous Cat:   They sure are,  more  similar than I like to admit.

Alligators and politicians were probably genetic matches at one time.  When it gets too hot/cold the only thing you see on alligators is their nose.  Watch the Clintons, when sexual abuse makes the headlines they virtually disappear.  Watch Al Sharpton, when IRS investigations/debts are in the news he can’t be found.  When a new stupid idea is mentioned they pop up, like Jiffy Pop.

Watch the old politicians when one of the new, young, and stupid ones tries to get close to their leader.

The herd mentality takes over politicians when one has a thought.  They run like fools until someone who can think rationally points out how stupid the idea is/was.  Then they run the other way.  An example of this is Alexandria Ocasio Cortez  ( AOC ) and her stupid green policy.

Another example is the millions of illegals.  Cities and states break the law providing sanctuary, but don’t want new illegals to be where they are welcome and their relatives live.

The Marine at Confession

http://

A U.S. Marine enters the Catholic Church confessional booth in Manitowish Waters,WI.

He says, “Bless me, Father, for I have sinned. Last night, I beat the ever living crap out of a flag burning, cop hating, anti-Trump protester.”

The priest says, “My son, I am here to forgive your sins, not to discuss your community service.”

Covered Bridge of the Day

This is one of Illinois’ eight covered bridges. It is the 105 feet long, Thompson Mill bridge spanning the Kalkaskia River in Shelby County near Cowden, Illinois. It was built in Michigan, shipped to Shelbyville, and delivered to its current location by horse drawn wagons in 1868. It was named for a nearby grist and saw mill which operated from 1843 until 1914. It not only provided access to the mill, but the road became an important transportation link. It utilizes Howe trusses. It is quite narrow at only about 10′-7″ wide.

Astronomy Picture of the Day

Enhanced: The Dolphin Cloud on Jupiter

Explanation: Do you see the dolphin-shaped cloud on Jupiter? The cloud was visible last year during perijove 16, the sixteenth time that NASA’s robotic spacecraft Juno passed near Jupiter since it arrived in mid-2016. During each perijove, Juno passes near a slightly different part of Jupiter’s cloud tops. The dolphin shape may be surprising but is not scientifically significant — clouds on Jupiter and Earth are constantly shifting and can temporarily mimic many familiar shapes. The cloud appears in Jupiter’s South Temperate Belt (STB), a band of dark and dropping clouds that rings the planet and also contains Oval BA, dubbed Red Spot Jr. The featured image was digitally processed to enhance color and contrast. Juno’s next swoop near Jupiter — perijove 20 — will occur on late May.
