Have you ever turned on BBC and watched a debate in the UK’s House Of Commons? I don’t recommend it for Americans because it will make you sad. It’s pretty civil and intelligent compared to our Congress. While the Brits are expounding their positions in great relevant detail, we have congressmen throwing snowballs on the House floor to debunk Climate Change.
I apologize to all my British friends for the over use of stereotypical slang from England in this cartoon. Also, how often can I put the term “wanker” into an editorial cartoon? That might scare off my editors but let me defend it. From the Urban Dictionary (there’s a trusted source!), “While to ‘wank’ means ‘to masturbate, the term “wanker” is seldom if ever used in British slang to denote “one who wanks”. It is quite wrong to infer from somebody’s being a wanker that they in fact wank (and vice versa), but of course, fair to assume they do in any case. Herein lies the genius of the insult: if you call someone a wanker, it’s probably true, but only literally.
So there you go. “Wanker” is OK. And I seriously doubt anyone but MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough is wanking off Donald Trump.
There’s a lot of people threatening to leave the United States if Donald Trump becomes president. Cape Breton is an island in the Canadian province (that’s like a state, you wanker) of Nova Scotia inviting Americans to immigrate if the horror of a Trump presidency actually happens. Meanwhile, we’re still waiting on Rush Limbaugh to move to Costa Rica, which he promised to years ago if Obamacare ever became law. Why is he still here?
