Making fun of the headlines today, so you don’t have to

The news doesn’t need to be complicated and confusing; that’s what any new release from Microsoft is for. And, as in the case with anything from Microsoft, to keep the news from worrying our pretty little heads over, remember something new and equally indecipherable will come out soon.

Really all you need to do is follow one simple rule: barely pay attention and jump to conclusions. So, here are some headlines today and my first thoughts:

headlines today

If they arrested everyone for asinine behavior in DC, that city would be ghost town.

Almost as good as the news that he’s returning to do more episodes of “Curb Your Enthusiasm.’

Raising the question, can people without kids hire a nanny?

Makes sense; if anyone knows how to lose to a Clinton, it’s Dole.

I’m guessing not quite in the same way Madonna did for S&M.

I’m thinking veterans should get free internet. First, it’s the least we could do. Second, how cool would it be to call it Semper WiFi?

Looks like Fiorina is dropping in the polls like someone with a broken golden parachute.
