Thursday was International Women’s Day, which sounds like something Austin Powers, the International Man of Mystery, would have thought up. What—just one day? Blacks get an entire history month. This sounds like the beginning of a bad Jewish mother joke that ends: “Never mind, I’ll just settle for one day.” And I have a further confusion: if gender is a social construct, isn’t having a “Women’s Day” problematic? Whatever, the obvious Trumpian response is to have a National Women’s Day. And by the way, today is Chuck Norris’s birthday, so you can already guess who our gun guy for the week is going to be.

Headlines of the week:

What could go wrong?

Oh come on! You can’t be serious.

Oklahoma sushi?

Seems to be this kid should be rewarded.

Funny story – I am transferring a bunch of old cassettes ( ! ) to my computer, and I came across this tape of my old friend Dave’s band.  On the flip side was a recording from WERS radio (Emerson College) with a bunch of circa 1983 songs.

There was this song called Pussy Whipped, and it sounded vaguely familiar.  I typed in the main phrase, and came up with this video.  Pretty funny.
