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

NASCAR is making changes to help boost its sagging TV ratings. In order to get more people to tune in, perhaps they might come up with an idea of anything other than watching cars go around an oval track for five hours.

The U.N. is stepping in to end a wireless carrier marketing war and come up with the official definition of 5G. It’s just good to know their priorities are in order and they will worry about the Middle East, Ukraine and Somalia once they straighten out the important issues.

That’s it for now, Oh Faithful Readers! As of this writing, the Academy Awards have not gotten underway so I don’t have any Oscar jokes yet. I may be able to add a few after the show is over, but at least there is one joke that could fall back on the old and reliable reference to Adam Sandler. I figure there will be a lot more jokes about the Oscars, especially if the Best Picture is “La La Land.” Seriously? At least I will have lots of material for political jokes, and that will be just from the acceptance speeches. I hope you enjoy the show tonight if you are planning on watching, and I always feel like a winner when you remember to always keep on sending the love!
