I so realize a “President Trump” is still a subject of many true conservative “disgustions,” but does the Ricochet email have to take a shot at him with nearly every Daily Shot email? More

“Nessie Wasn’t Here”

I hate to break this to you, but the Loch Ness Monster, Nessie herself, is not real. Yet, every year since 1933, thousands of people have traveled to Scotland to see the amazing creature that isn’t really there. Someone may have done a study about the percentage of people visiting Loch Ness who actually believe in the monster and those who don’t. I didn’t get around to looking that up. Still, I’m pretty sure that quite a number of people who go to Loch Ness because of the monster, don’t believe in the monster.

This year my wife and I have taken on the challenge of visiting a bar in every state and, in the last couple of weeks, we’ve visited bars that also happen to be delightful tourist frauds.

Okay, I was inspired by a link to the Pirates of Penzance lyrics in The Daily Shot from a few days ago. I give you Hillary Clinton, singing the signature song from her new hit comic opera, The Pirates of Wall Street:   More

If you read today’s Daily Shot, you saw Fred Cole’s recommendation of William Gibson’s 1990 retro-futuristic novel The Difference Engine, an alternative 1885 in which Charles Babbage has actually built his planned Analytical Engine (the title gets the name of the machine wrong; Babbage’s Difference Engine was more of a calculator for printing mathematical tables, while […]

Last year I put up a famous post in which I criticized Fred for an item in the Ricochet “Daily Shot” e-mail blast. So, in fairness, this post is to praise Fred for an item in yesterday’s “Daily Shot.” Yeah, Fred; I noticed. More

In the paragraph regarding the *constitutional importance* of the USDA and HHS “telling adults what to eat,” this hyperlink would have been pretty good, but if someone could have found a link to an actual video clip from the episode, it would have been amazing: https://twitter.com/southpark/status/517498459239497728 My personal favorite show by conservative-leaning writers.  More

We Heartily Recommend… Saturday is America’s 239th birthday. (The ol’ girl has held up pretty well, despite, well, everything we do to her). To recognize America’s general, um, awesomeness, this week we’re recommending things that celebrate the nation. But it’s also Canada Day and we don’t want to slight our neighbors to the north (or […]

In a podcast interview with comedian Marc Maron released on Monday, President Obama said the N-word. This caused headlines the world over (actually, probably just in the United States) So says The Daily Shot. But, well, the headlines certainly made it all the way to Australia. The evening TV news even billboarded it (without saying what the word was, […]

I saw the following quote from Jeb Bush, as quoted in today’s Daily Shot: “Former Florida governor Jeb Bush (who is totally still deciding on whether he’s going to run for president or not) said over the weekend that he is in favor of increasing the retirement age for Social Security. “We need to look over the horizon and […]

Scooby Doo did not speak, he did however make a couple of rough dog vocalizations like “Scooby – Scooby Doooooo!”, “Rahroh!” and “HeeHeeHee”. Now Scrappy Doo, Scooby Doo’s nephew who appeared in a couple episodes of the original runs spoke English fluently. (Why do anthropomorphized cartoon animals only have nephews and nieces, but never children?) […]
