do they just peck at the keyboard? Or do they team up and have one work the mouse with a wing while the other hops on the keyboard.

I suppose it does look like chickens made it.

The most general statement of what's going on here is: "Everyone in the United States is really farking stupid."

Intelligence peaked with Generation X, but the irony is it's actually their fault.  They turned education into garbage and gave out participation trophies and endless do-overs.

Well, this license plate just needs a do-over.  Oopsie!  Made a mistake!

So why does a chicken coop have two doors?


...


Because if it had four doors it'd be a chicken sedan!

Sorry, Ohio.  Telling someone to take a flying leap 1832 does not make you the birthplace of aviation.

When I first saw it, I didn't see the ribbon as a tow banner, so the plane didn't seem backwards to me. To me, it was flying into the scene. Putting a tow banner on the Wright Flyer seems completely idiotic from the get go.

Why does the little Ohio in the middle look like it was done by someone in Ms Grundy's second grade class?  That's the bigger question to me.

You are absolutely correct.

Participation trophies were baubles invented by baby boomers who treated their children as nothing more than accessories to brag about, and the trophies were pathetic fashion statements to accompany them.

Participation trophies were not created to make kids feel better; they were created to make parents feel better due to their disappointment in owning only average kids.

Ahem, I think MO is the FL of the Midwest.
There's just more dumb trifectas per square mile.
But Ohio is at least the GA, if not the AL.

I was once on I75S between Cleveland and Columbus. Traffic just got really bad and everyone was doing 45mph.  This lasted over an hour. Why? It turned out there was a wide load truck and everyone had a great deal of difficulty passing it.

Idiots.

That would have been impressive ... except for the fact that that highway neither goes to Columbus nor Cleveland.

I agree with this. Ohio and Indiana would be the Mideast, but the name was already taken internationally.

2021-10-21 3:35:07 PM  
During the Centennial of Flight celebration back in 2003, two dignitaries, one from NC & the other from Ohio, debated about which state should claim the First Flight. In a snarky & terse trade, Ohio dude said (paraphrasing) "Ohio provided the brainpower, NC just provided a bunch of hot air!"

NC dude said, "Then you should build a monument like we did here -  but who would want to visit it?"

/Dud had a solid point. Sandy dunes & beaches versus...Dayton?
