Episode 23: Dumplin', Defecating in Public, Seinfeld and Entertainment in the Abyss

Dumplin’. Wow, leftwing political tripe dressed up as a movie. This movie from Netflix is shameless with its political agenda.

Denver and the Bowel. Denver has decriminalized crapping in public. The mind boggles.

Wicked Me. Some people’s generosity with their time floors me. I can’t say I’m impressed because the way they’re spending it seems so banal, but maybe I ought to be impressed. It’s time spent for others. I puzzle it out in this segment.

Lightning Segments. Another good gin and tonic recipe, Hayek praising Belloc, changing the name of unfortunate circumstances . . . and changing the name of minority groups . . . an insult?

Steve Martin and Seinfeld. Comedy seemed to take a pretty wild turn with the advent of Steve Martin. Did screens affect our comedic tastes? i think so. I flush it out here.
