By George! I think he gets it!

I honestly don't follow.

The cartoon was factually incorrect - AOC (for all her faults) never claimed America was like a concentration camp. She claimed the detention camps were. So Uncle Sam's comment about people climbing fences makes no sense - they're climbing fences to get into the USA (not a detention camp).

So what's the joke? The cartoon clearly is a criticism of AOC - but it's clearly misrepresenting her words to make its "joke".


I normally charge a pint for explaining cartoons. However, this is getting pretty bad. I would need a flight thrown in as well.

Well, maybe I can buy you a pint when I'm next in Jax. I hear there's a new option for that. Barring that, we can always get a couple of 32 oz bottles of Colt 45 and hang out in the empty lot where the Landing used to be.

BT, I owe you an apology. When I saw the AOC cartoon, I was disappointed with your pick as I didn't think it was very good. However, the comments that have followed have been gold....gold, Jerry.

Is BT's name Jerry? I never knew that. If so, I'm intrigued.

That's a Seinfeld reference.

If I have to explain that one too, that's going to be yet another pint. Visit might get expensive.

Sorry for missing that. It's been donkey's years since I last watched Seinfeld. Aside from "no soup for you" and a handful of other bits, I have forgotten most of it.

I can buy you Drake's coffee cake and we can call it even.

In a boat at sea one of the men began to bore a hole in the bottom of the boat. On being remonstrating with, he answered, "I am only boring under my own seat." "Yes," said his companions, "but when the sea rushes in we shall all be drowned with you."

And hope most of the games aren't like Thursday night's stinker.
