The President’s Mountaineer Brother
Posted on 05.11.11 by Danny Glover @ 12:46 pm

This joke, forwarded by my Dad, perfectly captures the thinking of West Virginians (and I suspect most everyone else in “flyover country”) about Washington:

The year is 2016 and the United States has just elected the first woman president, who happens to be from West Virginia. A few days after the election the president-elect calls her father and says, “So, Dad, I assume you will be coming to my inauguration?”

“I don’t think so. It’s a 10-hour drive.”
“Don’t worry about it Dad, I’ll send Air Force One. And a limousine will pick you up at your door.”

“I don’t know. Everybody will be so fancy. What would your mother wear?”

“Oh Dad, I’ll make sure she has a wonderful gown custom-made by the best designer in Washington.”

“Honey,” Dad complains, “you know I can’t eat those rich foods you eat.”

“Don’t worry Dad. The entire affair will be handled by the best caterer in Washington; I’ll ensure your meals are salt-free. You and mom just have to be there.”

So Dad reluctantly agrees, and on Jan. 20, 2017, their daughter is sworn in as president of the United States with her parents in the front row.

Noticing the senator sitting next to him, the father leans over and whispers, “You see that woman over there with her hand on the Bible, becoming president of the United States.”

The senator whispers back, “You bet I do.”

Dad says proudly, “Her brother played football at WVU.”

The U.S. Secret Service is now on Twitter … but hasn’t tweeted yet. That sounds about right for a “secret” service. Tune in Monday when the tweeting is set to start.

Posted on 05.06.11 by Danny Glover @ 6:42 pm

Enlightened rednecks appreciate the big city — but we like to get in and out fast. Unfortunately, city traffic doesn’t move as fast in real life as it does in this creative time-lapse video:

No, My Mom Is Not On Twitter
Posted on 05.06.11 by Danny Glover @ 6:21 pm

As much as I love Twitter and my mother, I don’t think she has any interest in me teaching her a thing or two about Twitter for Mother’s Day — or Dad for Father’s Day.

Methinks a shared Facebook account is enough social media for my parents. But here’s a fun video about Moms who tweet, just in case I’m wrong:
