Your RDA of Irony

Musings and Mutterings

Musing I:  For some reason, Fox News is not covering the News Corp. scandal.  Apparently, this is a more pressing story.

Does Gay History Belong in U.S. Classrooms?

Of course not, because we need the time to study ancient Greece and Rome.


Musing II:  Remarkable Contortionist Dies

Body found at SoCal mansion may be suicide


SAN DIEGO — The girlfriend of a
pharmaceutical company executive was found dead at a historic California
mansion, her nude body hanging from a rope on a second-floor balcony with her
hands tied behind her back and her feet bound.

Investigators have not ruled out suicide.

Pending certain tests–such as the check clearing–police investigators are also postulating that the alleged corpse may have died of frostbite.


Musing III:  The latest version of “The Three Musketeers”

To summarize this effort, Cardinal Richelieu has a German accent and is allied to the Duke of Buckingham, who evidently has invented the dirigible two centuries sooner than history realized.  And Lady DeWinter is a Ninja.

I am sure that Dumas would have thought of it, too–if he had to write a new version of the novel every ten years.

    There is no classic adventure tale that could not be improved by the addition of dirigibles and ninjas.

  2. Peg Pruitt says:

    Oy! The trailer says, “Like Never Before.” Please, Lord, like never again!

    • Eugene Finerman says:


      Does every generation get “The Three Musketeers” it deserves? This version reminds me of the commercials for video games shown during South Park.


  3. “Investigators have not ruled out suicide.”

    Was the girlfriend Houdini’s granddaughter?

    • Eugene Finerman says:


      Houdini’s granddaughter would be in her seventies. At that age, the preferred form of suicide would be an overdose of Metamucil.
