Thursday Night Open Thread

What’s your favorite over the counter pain reliever?

I’ve been dealing with a situation for 2-3 weeks now, and I’ve tried acetaminophen, ibuprofen, and naproxen-sodium. Maybe I should try aspirin.

While I go raid the Walgreens store, y’all take over here and post something. Funny. Sad. Cute. Clever. Whatever.

It’s Thursday Night Open Thread. You control the topics, you control the conversation.

This Time, Sequel = Better

[Honest Trailers – Aliens] (Viewer #942,371)

I think Paul Reiser’s performance in this film is WAY underrated.

And I was also a fan of his work on “Mad About You”, wherein his best line was in one episode when a friend of his asked him if he’d ever seen the Alien movies, and his character responded, deadpan and immediately, “Only the first one”.

Laughed myself silly at that.

Cartoon of the Day – When


[Michael P. Ramirez]

It’s often a good business practice to replace someone when you have a replacement. Trump seems to me to have been following this with many of this appointments and “firings.” They aren’t really so much firings as delayed from the traditional clean sweep of a new administration. He left them in place until a replacement was lined up, with much of the focus on getting the appointments that were attracting opposition confirmed. At least, that’s how I’ve seen it.

Comey, though, is outside of that. Keeping him on for any period of time was not a good idea. I think The Donald knows that.
