She has been doing so well, but today at breakfast she dropped her fork, crawled over to the next booth to get it, and claimed she saw the Obamas and the Bidens. Like all they have to do with their time is have waffles and patty sausages here at the Yankee Kitchen!
You may disagree, Patty, but I consider this to be even worse than last month, when she saw all four Beatles over there at Applebee’s!
Anyways, we wouldn’t play along with her. Doc told us to just ignore her, and she’ll soon stop making up this hogwash!
Swiss President: What news have you, Schmid?
Schmid: It is horrible! France and Italy are poised to attack us with bombers, missiles and paratroopers!

Blog Guy, is it just me, or has the Secret Service started using younger agents.
You’re right. Due to a misprint in a Secret Service recruiting ad, the entry age for agents was cut recently from 21 years to 21 WEEKS!
An agency official admitted the resulting change has been rough. “We’ve had teething problems,” he said.
