BEHOLD THE CHILD, OBAMOPRAH! ALL PRAISE HER, UHH, WORTHINESS-NESS.
I'm searching for a word, but exactly the right word. "Pitiful" is close but far too commonly used. "Delusional" is close but may not be right. I think the best word may have to come from profanity. Here's the story.
There's a dude we see here every week or two, always by ambulance, and he's here again today. He drinks enough to sink a ship but he is still afloat. He is very hard to understand and to the extent I could understand him today I understand that he is short of breath. That's it. I thought. Until I went in a second time and he added "sore chest" but that's really not important even though you will be paying for his admission. He's also got Rhinophyma, which is merely an interesting aside and you may look it up if you like.
Here's the problem. This guy has no home to speak of... maybe a shack, he has no money, but he does manage to go to the local 'health food store' where he stocks up on relatively expensive herbal medicine. He's got about twenty bottles of the stuff. On the top someone has labelled their uses... one says, "for heartburn" and it contains some root of some sort in some concentration. Another says, for "locked bowels" and has some other herb in it in some other concentration. So this guy is a health-conscious guy, dutifully paying probably half his SSI check a month to the natural health food store for 'food supplements' with, charitably, barely greater than placebo effect. But then he cops the ambulance ride when he gets sick. I mean, why not go to the health food store? So, what is the name for this (and I will not accept 'ironic', dontcha think)? I mean, the natural cures are not working dude, especially not with the lice... especially not with them.
Oh, and a big MDOD congratulations to Iranian president-elect (and kookoo-bird from the pits of hell) achmidinijad (phonetic, sorry) on winning a huge victory in a free and fair election which is a bit of a surprise since Obama was putting his full weight behind the other guy.... shocker. Israel into the sea! 'Bout time, running all the world banks and Hollywood and the trilateralist commision and killing Jesus and baking rolls with children's blood and all. 'Bout time. I do like Jerry Seinfeld though.
FOR THOSE OF YOU NEW TO MDOD THIS LAST PARAGRAPH IS BEST CLASSIFIED AS DARK HUMOR, SATIRE, A JOKE, WHATEVER. IF WE DON'T STOP IRAN'S NUKE PROGRAM THOUGH THE ABOVE MAY HAPPEN AND THE GREAT DUO OF OBAMA AND OPRAH WILL NOT BE ABLE TO SAVE US EVEN IF THEY WERE TO MATE AND PRODUCE OBAMOPRAH. SERIOUSLY, NOT EVEN THEN.
