Greetings, Oh Faithful Readers! From the most prolific joke writer on the planet...!

The U.S. Post Office is raising the price of its forever stamps. It was either that or deciding if the stamps were no longer good forever and having to pick if they were valid for an epoch, era or eon.

CNN is looking for a reporter to cover “fake news” stories and where they originate. Which means the new hire will walk around the newsroom and ask the other CNN reporters what they are covering that day.

A Michigan man was arrested for DUI after already being convicted 13 other times, Even Lindsay Lohan is telling the guy to take a cab next time.

A report says more parents are using hypnosis to help their children in school and sports. If anyone really wants to see their kid go into a hypnotic trance, just let them sit down with an iPad for a couple of hours.

A Pennsylvania college is offering a course asking “Is God A White Supremacist?” Apparently the answer is that if he is not, why did He arrange it so that Mel Gibson could shoot “The Passion of the Christ” about his Son?

Donald Trump is reportedly picking New York Jets owner Woody Johnson as his ambassador to the United Kingdom. Apparently he wants him to go there and fix the crazy times they schedule the NFL games played in London.

Rick Perry says he “regrets” calling for the closing of the Energy Department he is now nominated to head. Most people aren’t as concerned about that as they are waiting for him to say he regrets appearing on “Dancing With The Stars.”

A competitor to the EpiPen allergy remedy will reportedly be on the market soon. The fear is that if the price is low enough, it could cause the CEO of Mylan to go into anaphylactic shock.

Treasury Secretary nominee Steve Mnuchin admits his bank foreclosed on the Octomom. Which is nice to admit to a congressional panel while seeking confirmation that you threw eight kids out on the street at the same time.

The St. Louis Public Library computers have reportedly been hacked for ransom. Which is only a big deal to the homeless people who come in to use them to access online porn sites anyway.

The St. Louis Public Library computers have reportedly been hacked for ransom. Which means if they aren’t back up and working in the next six weeks, they will have to use their backup manual system to help that one person check out a book.

Treasury Secretary nominee Steve Mnuchin says he wants to raise the debt ceiling “sooner than later.” So much for the new administration even pretending to come in trying to balance the budget.

The movie “A Dog’s Purpose” is under fire for video showing apparent animal cruelty during the filming. Which shows that in Hollywood, a dog’s purpose is the same as that of a human. Make the movie studio more profits.

Protesters are planning on taking down the website Whitehouse.gov to protest Donald Trump’s Inauguration. If they really want to shake up the White House they will try to instead hack into and disable Trump’s Twitter account.

The Chinese are planning on building a “super, super” computer than can perform a “billion billion” calculations a second. Like with their panda bears, is there anything the Chinese can do without using the same word twice?

The Chinese are planning on building a “super, super” computer than can perform a “billion billion” calculations a second. Which is still only about half the speed that Donald Trump can send out the same number of tweets.

Facebook is fighting against potential hate speech fines in Germany. Which is hard to imagine being penalized for that in a country that has a language that makes singing “Happy Birthday” sound like hate speech.

A newly discovered asteroid has been named for Wil Wheaton of “Star Trek.” Which is not to be confused with the hemorrhoid named after William Shatner.

USA Today will livestream Donald Trump’s Inauguration in Virtual Reality. And what better way to describe the incoming Trump Administration as some other kind of reality?

A robot reporter got its first article published in a Chinese newspaper, writing a 300 character long report in one second. One and a half if you include the extra time it took for spellcheck and editing.

A study says adult dog owners post pictures or talk about their dogs six times a week. Which is still better than the non-pet owners who post selfies and show pictures of what they ate for breakfast seven times a week.

A study says 1 in 10 dog owners crate a separate social media account for their pet. The sad part is having to explain to their female dog she was unfriended for being a bitch.

Data says that January is the busiest time of year for dating sites. Especially for women whose current boyfriend bought them a vacuum cleaner for Christmas.

At a candlelight dinner, Donald Trump proclaimed the election as a “victory for all of us.” At least for the people in attendance who could afford the $150,000 per plate admission fee.

That’s it for now, Oh Faithful Readers! As of this writing, we are still under the administration of Barack Obama. I am going to miss him. I think he came in and did a pretty good job with what he was left with when he took over the White House. However, he was nowhere near the comedy gold mine of who is replacing him. I hope Donald Trump makes a good President and leads us in the right direction, although I am not holding my breath. Sometimes it is good to be wrong and this would be that time. So let’s just get on with it, hope for the best and at least know that for the next four years there will be plenty of material to keep this blog going. All you need to do is remember to always keep on sending the love!
