News that I have missed, courtesy of The Babylon Bee:

U.S.—While most Americans are hostile to socialism, touching a hot stove, and sticking one’s face in a sack full of badgers, surveys show that millennials are much more open to these dangerous ideas and activities than previous generations.

Finding themselves pessimistic about the future and saddled with student debt, millennials often turn to socialism, and also tend to say things like “Hey, maybe it would be fun to touch that hot, glowy thing above the oven.”

These new attitudes towards stove touching, putting one’s face in a sack full of badgers, and socialism is changing the Democratic Party, already resulting in a surprise win for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in the NY-14 primary who openly ran on a platform of democratic socialism along with “democratic sticking your face in a sack full of badgers,” which is “fundamentally different” from the old style of just sticking your face in a sack full of badgers, according to Ocasio-Cortez.

“The system has failed in getting a close look at badgers,” Ocasio-Cortez told an enthused crowd. “It’s past time to just stick our face in a sack full of them.”

 

Go here to read the rest.  The motto of my generation was “Badgers?  We don’t need no stinking badgers!”.  Times change I guess.

  1. Thing is, if they did do such a survey, they’d probably get a result like this– because 1) the question is stupid enough that people think it’s funny to give the Obviously Wrong Answer, and 2) those who actually bother to answer surveys will tend to include people who are terrified of saying “no” to anything. The stupider it is, the less they’ll be willing to SAY anything, because it’s an obvious trap.

    Her face, her face not “our” face.
