[I saw a great poster “Donald Trump 2016  –  There’ll be hell toupée…”   At first I laughed, but now I just can’t figure out if it’s meant to be mocking him or if his supporters are actually buying this stuff.  Should I still think it’s funny if they think it’s serious?   Google (images) “hell toupee” – and let me know what you think – joke or serious?   —  KMAB]

How can you tell if you should be voting Democrat or Republican:
Vote Republican if you hire exterminators to kill bugs in your house.
Vote Democrat if you step on the bugs.
Vote Democrat if you buy books which have been banned somewhere.
Vote Republican if you form censorship committees and read the books as a group.
Vote Democrat if you eat the fish and game you catch or hunt.
Vote Republican if you hang them on a wall.
Vote Republican if you keep your bedroom shades drawn (although there is little reason you need to).
Vote Democrat if you ought to but don’t.
  —  From “An Incomplete Education“, by Judy Jones and William Wilson
