True story.  One of my cousins married a guy named "Thomas Morrow."  He, no shiat, has an identical twin brother who his parents named, wait for it, "John Morrow."  They could have named him Timothy, but nope, they went with John.  Swing and a miss.

I've loved Tom Tomorrow for decades. Is he not syndicated in Village Voice Media and The Stranger weeklies anymore?

My friend Mike named his kids Hawk and Hunt. Weird, huh?

Speaking of the Post Office, any threads on the story that the Post Office stopped updating the database for people moving last month, potentially farking up as many as 1.8 million mail in ballots by sending them to the wrong address?

I rather enjoyed this one from April, with author comment goodness.

This was supposed to be a cartoon about the rise and fall of Trump's fixation with hydroxychloroquine, but literally minutes after I finished writing a first draft, he held his now-infamous press briefing and mused aloud, "And then I see the disinfectant, where it knocks it out in a minute, one minute. And is there a way we can do something like that by injection inside or almost a cleaning, because you see it gets in the lungs and it does a tremendous number on the lungs." I've had to rewrite a lot of cartoons at the last minute over the past three years, as Trump does something dumber than you would have imagined possible up until the moment he actually does it, but this may be the first time he literally acted out a cartoon-in-progress before my eyes.

Parents of twins seldom intentionally give their twins wordplay jokes as names. Film at 11.

I suggest naming our identical twins Juan and Amol. That way once you've seen Juan....

Most of my wife's response would be filtered if quoted, suffice to say she was not enthusiastic.

YEARS ago, I met a guy named Cornelius Flakes.  He was authorized to enter a Secret clearance military research lab for a day's worth of meetings, with the name Cornelius Flakes.  Got a temp badge with the name and everything.  We passed around a sign-in sheet to document who was there and he wrote down, "Cornelius Flakes."

My boss wasn't happy when I signed in as "Frederick Flintstone", but fark it.

I had a co-worker who sat in the cubicle next to me for years. We would sometimes play pranks on each other.

We had plain-looking nameplates on our cubicles, black and white. One day I printed out "Nofun McKilljoy" in exactly the same font that our nameplates used, and I carefully taped it over his name. The same day, I taped an envelope under his chair saying "Hi, NOFUN MCKILLJOY--- I changed your name on January 1st! Ha ha ha!"

I wanted to see how long it would take him to notice because the nameplate was at eye-level and he would walk past it every day to sit down. I thought maybe he would notice it in a few days.

A week went by. Two weeks went by. Three weeks went by, the nameplate was apparently not noticed.

I pointed it out to everyone else in the office, they laughed and kept the secret to see how long it would go.

Finally, three months after I made the change, I overreached-- I pointed it out to a blabbermouth.

I came back to my cubicle and there was a sloppily-printed paper taped over my nameplate saying "MY WIFE OWNS MY PATHETIC HIDE!"

I laughed, and he was sitting in his cubicle, unseen. He hears me, cackles and said "How do you like your new name?"

"I like it! Hey-- look under your chair for an envelope."

There was grumbling, rustling and a tear. Then, three seconds later his fist went- WHAM!!

I had a good laugh that day.

I once took a small framed portrait of a co-worker's wife and just put it on my desk.  Nothing fancy.  Just picked it up and put it on my desk, instead of his.  He was busy and hitting a hard deadline.  It was there for easily three weeks before he noticed.  He was good-natured about it.  Appreciated the prank.

What he didn't notice was that I'd taken a picture of myself and inserted into the frame, behind his wife's picture.  He NEVER would have known, if not for the fact the blabbermouth who took the picture told him six months later.

Wives specific purpose in marriage is to eliminate dad humor so that the offspring can learn to live with the monotony in the world.
It is a concerted, trans generational effort among women to assure a steady stream of males more than willing to work overtime, join the military, or silently drink themselves to death to avoid judgmental, overbearing wives opinions regarding attire, hygiene, and home decor.

Get numb. Stay numb.
