Three pastries

Hot Mushroom Turnovers | What about this?

 

Trump and Biden go into a bakery on the campaign trail. As soon as they enter the bakery, Joe steals three pastries and puts them in his pocket.

Joe says to Trump, “See how clever I am? The owner didn’t see anything, and I don’t even need to lie. I will definitely win the election”.

Trump says to Biden , “That’s the typical dishonesty you have displayed throughout your entire life, trickery and deceit. I am going to show you an honest way to get the same result.”

Trump goes to the owner of the bakery and says, “Give me a pastry and I will show you a magic trick.”

Intrigued, the owner accepts and gives him a pastry. Trump swallows it and asks for another one. The owner gives him another one. Then Trump asks for a third pastry and eats that, too.

The owner is starting to wonder where the magic trick is and asks, “What did you do with the pastries?”

Trump replies, “Look in Joe’s pocket.”

Astronomy Picture of the Day

Solis Lacus: The Eye of Mars

Explanation: As telescopes around planet Earth watch, Mars is growing brighter in night skies, approaching its 2020 opposition on October 13. Mars looks like its watching too in this view of the Red Planet from September 22. Mars’ disk is already near its maximum apparent size for earthbound telescopes, less than 1/80th the apparent diameter of a Full Moon. The seasonally shrinking south polar cap is at the bottom and hazy northern clouds are at the top. A circular, dark albedo feature, Solis Lacus (Lake of the Sun), is just below and left of disk center. Surrounded by a light area south of Valles Marineris, Solis Lacus looks like a planet-sized pupil, famously known as The Eye of Mars . Near the turn of the 20th century, astronomer and avid Mars watcher Percival Lowell associated the Eye of Mars with a conjunction of canals he charted in his drawings of the Red Planet. Broad, visible changes in the size and shape of the Eye of Mars are now understood from high resolution surface images to be due to dust transported by winds in the thin Martian atmosphere.

Ask Me Later Editor:  Are you familiar with polls, LL ?

I Know A Lot Cat:  I know you can’t make Polish jokes anymore.  I don’t understand why, they are mostly white and Christian.  Here is a great article about political polls.  Caution—jokes apply to all people.

Personally, I think too many are just made-up nonsense like almost everything the MSM reports.  They want to get Republicans to think Biden is ahead.  I think Joe is Wile E. Coyote, and gets his ideas from Acme & Recycled Clinton BS.

Here is a meaningless poll.  The interesting part is only 35 % of respondents trust the media, they must be dems.

This is The Sphinx’s favorite poll.
