Rearing its ugly head

They say absence makes the heart grow fonder. I wonder if that's true for crimes against literature?

On an unrelated note, I am please to present...

Current Events Sonnet #6 in D Minor

A mob boss gave himself up to the feds
While someone else who knew good suits has died
New York is cool with anyone who weds
Whether or not the pair is "groom" and "bride"
Australia pulls some troops out of Iraq
And science, now, can make the bleeding stop
The first storm of the season's on its track
A new ace speller rockets to the top.
The LDSer's finally get to leave
The Martian lander gets an early taste
Real fire burns in Land of Make-Believe
"Sex and the City" isn't toxic waste.
Now Clinton's pleased with how the voting went;
You'd almost think that she was relevant.

Whew! That's over with. Be sure to tune in tomorrow, when we'll offer helpful money-saving tips for the financially conscious!

Hey, what is this sonnet implying? I am relevant! Hey!

Hey, guys? Anyone listening...?

Hmm... must be sexism.

It isn't sexism. We just don't like Hillary.

Hillary said...

What? Women, not like me?

No, no, that can't be. I mean, if we were to imagine women not voting for a candidate of their own gender... why, that would indicate that women besides me could make their own choices based on intelligent thought!

Clearly, your logic is flawed.
