Why should Fox News have all the fun? I jumped into the “War on Christmas” by ranting about the guilt imposed on me by the bell ringers of the Salvation Army at the entrances of the stores I frequent. And I went on about a car ad campaign featuring a very Santa-like salesman. The jokes of the ads center around the salesman possibly being the gift-giver himself. One ad in particular is very funny. Or it was last year, but this year it was changed a little and the humor was diminished by that change.
Or maybe it’s just some other guy?
There’s a conspiracy theory out there that says that President George Herbert Walker Bush had something to do with President John Fitzgerald Kennedy’s death. There’s a picture from the day, shortly after the assassination, showing, among others, a man in a grey suit standing by the Texas School Book Depository building. He does look kind of, sort of, possibly similar to a man that might maybe be GHWB. But there’s another person it might be… Beatle’s manager, Brian Epstein!
The image just isn’t clear enough to be certain who it is, but I think it’s BE! What was he doing November 22, 1963? DOES ANYONE REALLY KNOW?
A couple things about the movie stood out. One was the amount of advancement our technology has made in those 30 years. The other was how upset my wife got when the two teenagers remarked about how old some fellow was when he allegedly died. He was 41 years-old.
A couple weeks ago my wife had turned 41 herself. Poor Honey Bunny, you’re not old.
