This is Your Brain on Aphorisms: If I Didn’t Have a Brain I Wouldn’t Mind…

This is Your Brain on Aphorisms: If I Didn’t Have a Brain I Wouldn’t Mind…
I was born a young baby. Then I grew up. Then I grew confused. Then I grew tired. I'm a 20th century man who's somehow been transported to the 21st century, with one foot in the gone past and the other in the here now. I started my blog mymanymoodsofme toward the end of 2012. There I write humorous essays, stories and poems (lyrics from my songs), in addition to my aphorisms. It's good work... if you get it. In my spare time I play chess, write songs, and reflect upon what I see. I'm very happy to be colluding with Humor Times, and hope you enjoy the result. Cheers!

…and if I didn’t have a heart I wouldn’t care, either. Trump is one character with absolutely none. My dictionary defines trumpery as “anything showy but of  little value.” … Read more

Swift’s ‘Modest Proposal,’ Now Commended to Congress as it Debates Health Care

Swift’s ‘Modest Proposal,’ Now Commended to Congress as it Debates Health Care
Michael was born in South Africa at the height of the apartheid era He quickly became involved in the underground resistance movement, knew Nelson Mandela and other prominent revolutionaries, some of whom later moved into privileged positions formerly occupied by whites. After several exciting escapes, he was forced to flee the country in disguise. He successfully made his way to the UK and gained his PhD at Cambridge on a university scholarship, He then pursued the dualcareer of college professor and social revolutionary, provoking academic and political mayhemwherever he went. Having thus failed miserably at both politics and education, he now cynically rails like Diogenes at the foibles of mankind in bitter satires and faintly subtly edgy political cartoons. History will, however absolve him. In 2006 he discovered a new Shakespeare play, but it's going to take a new generation to acknowledge it. Check out his website, Editorial and Political Cartoons.

The original fake news, written by Jonathan Swift in 1729 (author of ‘Gulliver’s Travels’), edited by Michael Egan to reflect the current health care debate. [Jonathan Swift begins … Read more
