The Friday Funny first, and especially note that my sister, who has no sense of humor, sent it to me. And I laughed. Out loud!
Experts have found the following analysis to be nearly 100% accurate:
1) The Wall Street Journal is read by the people who run the country.
2) The Washington Post is read by people who think they run the country.
3) The New York Times is read by people who think they should run the
country, and who are very good at crossword puzzles.
4) USA Today is read by people who think they ought to run the country
but don’t really understand The New York Times.
5) The Los Angeles Times is read by people who wouldn’t mind running the
country, if they could find the time and if they didn’t have to leave
Southern California to do it.
6) The Boston Globe is read by people whose parents used to run the
7) The New York Daily News is read by people who aren’t too sure who’s
running the country and don’t really care as long as they can get a seat on
8) The New York Post is read by people who don’t care who is running the
country as long as they do something really scandalous, preferably while
9) The Chicago Tribune is read by people that are in prison that used to
run the state, & would like to do so again, as would their constituents that
are currently free on bail.
10) The Miami Herald is read by people who are running another country, but
need the baseball scores.
11) The San Francisco Chronicle is read by people who aren’t sure if there
is a country or that anyone is running it; but if so, they oppose all that
they stand for. There are occasional exceptions if the leaders are gay,
handicapped, minority, feminist, atheists, and those who also happen to be
illegal aliens from any other country or galaxy, provided of course, that
they are not Republicans.
12) The National Enquirer is read by people trapped in line at the grocery
13) The Seattle Times is read by people who have recently caught a fish and
need something to wrap it in.
As a WSJ reader, I am glad to know I am part of the Run The Country community and somewhat vindicated that my sister, who only reads the NYT, merely feels she should run the country.
The Boston Globe one is hilarious but the Chicago Times line tops them all!
The Friday Oddity…
In reading the blog comments every morning, one popped up in the Wheel of Fortune post that struck me.

I let the comment sit for a while, not sure what it had to do with anything, and not sure if it was spam. There was no harmful link to it and honestly, WordPress is superb at filtering out spam, but I wondered what it meant. What cryptic message was the commenter sending? I eventually decided to toss the comment in the trash. I figured no harm no foul.
Fast forward to that night’s Jeopardy. To Final Jeopardy.
I saw the clue, thought to myself, gee, that wording sounds so familiar, then jumped up and ran to to the blog comment trash bin – low and behold, the commenter posted the FJ clue, a full night before the actual show. Huh. Odd, right?
Now please, whoever you are, I’d really rather have a good stock tip or a winning lottery ticket, but thanks anyway for the Final Jeopardy clue. Because I didn’t pay attention to it when it was a comment, I didn’t contemplate the words and hence did not get Baskin Robbins, the correct response.
‘Tis Friday. It’s gray and dreary outside. With no vote last night on the healthcare bill, news pundits are in full crazy mode on whether or not this passes today. I don’t know. Do you?
