It’s like they always say…
Hey Blog Guy, I just saw some new pictures of Jean-Marie Le Pen, that extreme right-wing French politician who once called the Holocaust a detail of history.
I saw those, too. There’s been a transition of leadership in his party.
You know who he sort of looks like? That baseball guy, the former Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda.
Yeah, I can see that, looking at them side by side. But the French guy is heavier.
No, I think Lasorda is bigger.
Huh-uh, Le Pen is much bigger.
You’re wrong. Lasorda is much heftier.
No, Le Pen is larger. I’m sure. It’s just like that famous old quote from that English author…
I don’t think I’m going to like this. What famous old quote?
“Le Pen is meatier than Lasorda.”
