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

Grocery chain Kroger says it will fill 10,000 permanent jobs this year, which is more good news for the economy. Until you realize they reason they need more workers is that people are shopping for food because they can’t afford to eat out anymore.

The U.N. estimates that 27% of the world’s population will be in smaller cities by 2030. Mostly because only small cities will be what’s left when the other 73% leave the big cities to move into survival shelters in the middle of the desert to make it through the nuclear holocaust.

China has slammed western democracy as being flawed. Americans were surprised at the statement. We still have a democracy?

China has ordered more than 100 golf courses to be shut down in order to protect land and water. Apparently the grass and tree covered sites get in the way of all the land and water they need to build their latest round of coal fired factories.

China has ordered more than 100 golf courses to be shut down in order to protect land and water. With 500 courses left in a country of 1.3 Billion people, the adjustment was made to be able to now reserve tee times as early as 2045.

China has ordered more than 100 golf courses to be shut down in order to protect land and water. Forget the currency and trade issues, if they wanted to rile up Donald Trump for a fight they have finally pushed the right button.

The new Whitehouse.gov website has gone to an English-only content. Apparently they will go back to having Spanish on the site when they find someone who can translate alternate facts into different languages.

Paris is testing electric driverless minibuses to fight pollution. The only problem is that when they finally eliminate all the smog, the city will have to start working on the odor that they will now be able to smell from the lack of personal hygiene.

A former model who claims to have the world’s longest legs says she always had trouble finding clothes that fit right. If that’s the case, then why did so many clothes designers want to hire her to wear them?

A climate change activist who was walking across the country barefoot to promote his cause was hit and killed in Florida by an SUV. The official cause of death has been listed as extreme irony.

Donald Trump has resigned from his namesake business and 400 affiliated entities. Which upset many Democrats who heard he was resigning and thought it meant from being President.

Donald Trump has resigned from his namesake business and 400 affiliated entities. Apparently he doesn’t have enough time to run the country while overseeing that many bankruptcy filings at once.

 Group of ethics lawyers is planning to sue Donald Trump over his continued business interests they say violates the Constitution. How bad has this country gone when the Chief Executive is being scolded by a bunch of lawyers for his ethics?

 A lawsuit says that Donald Trump’s business ties violate the Constitution. To which Trump says if they think that violates the Constitution, they need to read all the executive orders he is currently having typed up.

A study says sharing good news with their partner helps people sleep better at night. Unfortunately, the only good news for many married people these days is when they find out their divorce lawyer is running a half price special.

A study says sharing good news with their partner helps people sleep better at night. The only problem is that the one thing that puts most men to sleep is when their wives start telling them about all their good news.

A study says that baseball pitching and hitting is affected by jet lag. Which means the Minnesota Twins should ditch the team’s charter plane and start transporting their players with a bus, van or by calling Uber.

Two Republican Senators have introduced an alternate plan to Obamacare. Although after Sean Spicer’s first press briefing, the GOP should be careful about using the world “alternate.”

Two Republican Senators have introduced an alternate plan to Obamacare. Apparently it has something to do with people paying for medical care by using their 401(k), refinancing their homes and telling their kids they don’t really need an education and dipping into their college fund.

Scientists say that French fries increase the risk of cancer. It’s getting so bad that fast food restaurants are now requiring servers to ask their customers ordering fries “Would you like some Chemo with that?”

A study says e-cigarettes are not a deterrent from smoking for kids. Although these days most parents are just happy if it keeps them off the heroin, meth and opioids.

A study says dogs, cats and other pets suffer as a result of second hand smoke. Although those pets are pretty much doomed to a short life span anyway if their owners feed them using their leftover table scraps.

Researchers say restricting calories increases the age in rhesus monkeys. Not because of any dietary effects but from just not having as many discarded banana peels lying around that can cause them to slip and fall.

Alec Baldwin is set to host “Saturday Night Live” for a record 17th time. And just to make Donald Trump go apoplectic, probably every week after that for the next four years.

“Saturday Night Live” writer Katie Rich has been suspended for sending out a tweet mocking ten year old Barron Trump. Other writers were shocked. She didn’t have enough material to just go after Donald and the other adult members of the Trump family?

“Saturday Night Live” writer Katie Rich has been suspended for sending out a tweet mocking ten year old Barron Trump. Republicans were outraged. Why didn’t they go after an easier and more appropriate target, like Chelsea Clinton?

Gavin Rossdale says divorcing Gwen Stefani was “the opposite” of what he wanted. And who would know more about the opposite of what he wants than someone who had a career as a rock star turn into becoming a stay at home dad?

Did you see the oversized jacket Tom Brady was wearing on the sideline of Sunday’s game against the Steelers? Of all people to not know when it’s time to find a way to deflate something.

Investors want a Major League Soccer stadium put on the site of the Chargers old home field. How bad is it for the Chargers when fans who are tired of a lack of scoring are anticipating sitting through a season of soccer matches?

The basketball coach at Manhattan College went on a rant during a press conference about our “fraudulent society.” The question was whether he was referring to the number of athletic scholarship recipients who actually graduate.

Rory McIlroy will miss his second tournament because of a fractured rib. The only question is whether the injury will get its own name and anyone suffering from it will be diagnosed with “McRibs.”

Rory McIlroy will miss his second tournament because of a fractured rib. The only question is how has Jm Furyk played an entire career without breaking a rib every time he swings the golf club?

Samsung profits were up in 2016 despite problems with exploding Galaxy Note 7 phones. Mostly because of an increase of sales to men who thought it would be a nice gesture to buy a new smartphone for their ex-wives.

Johnny Manziel offered Donald Trump advice on using Twitter. When even Johnny Manziel is saying you need help with your social media, it might be time to put down the cellphone.

Researchers predict that renewable energy storage will increase by 40 times in developing countries over the next five years. Mostly so those countries can keep Donald Trump from thinking they have any oil they could be invaded for.

A new PBS documentary will address Alzheimer’s Disease, calling it the “biggest epidemic in medical history. The only problem is that no one can seem to remember when it is supposed to air.

A new PBS documentary will address Alzheimer’s Disease, calling it the “biggest epidemic in medical history. It turns out that the best way to test a person’s memory is by asking them if they can recall the last time they watched a program on PBS.

A study of primates says 60% of the species are at risk of extinction. Although the results have since been updated to 100% ever since Donald Trump became President and was given access to the Nuclear Codes.

Donald Trump has ordered an across-the-board hiring freeze for the federal government. But just until he can make sure he can personally fill all the best jobs with members of his immediate family.

Donald Trump has become the first President in the history of Gallup to enter office with a rating below the majority mark. Or as the Trump Administration calls a vote that ends up with fewer than a majority, “a mandate.”

That’s it for now, Oh Faithful Readers! I just want to give a shout out for a happy birthday to my late wife Karen, on today what would have been her 49th b-day. She left us way too soon after losing a heroic battle with Cystic Fibrosis. She always liked my jokes (at least the ones she got which can be identified with by many readers.) She was always supportive of my writing, mostly because it kept me at home and out of the bars. She was a wonderful wife and great mother and my daughter Summer and I miss her every day. Make sure you include her in your thoughts when you take the usual time to remember to always keep on sending the love!
