And it's not even a hack! Morning news roundup!
In honor of Wonkitty’s ‘airing ‘do, I wrote about the gutsy guy who first jumped with a parachute: https://open.substack.com/pub/martiniambassador/p/andre-jacques-garnerin-had-a-good
"Michael Wolff’s new book The Fall: The End of Fox News and the Murdoch Dynasty"
Not nearly fallen enough yet.
I can tell you from personal experience that Mike Simpson is stupid. In case you didn’t catch it from that quote.
The Instant Pot is awesome....you'll get great dinners if you take a bit of time to learn it.

Democrat senator Bob Menendez (NJ) and his wife have been indicted on bribery charges. Also some hanky-panky with Egypt that looks like spying to me. Anyway he says it's all a frame up and somebody must have planted the $150,000 in gold in his house. https://www.cnn.com/2023/09/22/politics/bob-menendez-charges/index.html
Menendez needs to resign from the senate.
Wonkitty looks a bit too excited to be here.
"But preventing "Beetlejuice" hand jobs is not the main reason this "get married" bullying is so misguided. It's because it overlooks the very basic fact that women are people, and not just organic robots put on earth to cater to men."
Not just organic robots performing Beetlejuice handjobs!

"Okay, I’m finally getting around to soup in this Instant Pot I got for Mother’s Day (we’re sick! and I’ve been skeered!), so thanks for HOW THE FUCK DO YOU TURN THIS THING ON!"
My niece gave me one of those for Christmas. I have never intentionally turned it on. But I have done it once or twice by mistake.
<quote> questionable travel ethics, like “begpacking,” where travelers will show up in a destination without enough funds to continue their trip, and will busk </quote>
Beg pardon, busking ... playing music in the street with an open case nearby ... is a perfectly ethical way to get around. What you hear is what you get, socially useful and no chicanery. Part of a long, long tradition of Wandering Minstrelsy. Not worse than "begging" for subscriptions on Substack surely.
In other good news, radical right-wing Republican election loser Alex Mealer finally dropped her suit against the lady that kicked her ass with votes last year, Lina Hidalgo.
Her suit was initially funded by Mattress Mack - a really good guy with one bad flaw, and that's being a Republican - and promoted by Wayne Dolcefino, who is the living, breathing embodiment of the word "sleazebag".
Mealer - who gave up all semblance of decency and honesty not that long ago - claimed she didn't bring her suit to re-litigate her ass-creaming but to ensure future elections are fair. Since she dropped her suit with no positive outcome for her, we can assume she's admitting failure.
Of note is that her attorney bailed on her three weeks ago, BECAUSE Mealer wanted to introduce ELECTION FRAUD into her lawsuit. He said he never signed up for ELECTION FRAUD, so he peaced out.
“Name one time that we’ve shut the government down and we haven’t got the blame.”
How in the Sam Hill does this guy not connect "we shut the government down" with "we get the blame". Does he know know who "we" is?
Dude - "we" is YOU.
An amazing interview with a gas station owner about living your values:
Are we sure that Mike Simpson's middle name isn't Homer?
[ I know, Homer libulllz ]
The source of the illegal "travel hack" was Barstool Sports' TikTok channel. Say no more.
“We always get the blame,” said Rep. Mike Simpson (R-Idaho), a senior appropriator. “Name one time that we’ve shut the government down and we haven’t got the blame.”
