Yayyy! Picked up by Pookie’s Toons

Nope, nuthin’ I can do about that except avoid ‘em, but it got me to thinkin’…
what if there was some kind of remote-controlled power-off/disabling/sedating device (like a shock collar or ankle bracelet, not the decapitation kind which already exists in the movies*), which a court could require for high-functioning psychopaths, sociopaths, or other Democrats that aren’t already safely institutionalized.

(What? Yeah, reckon I do need a nap. It’s just… it’s just that her “spark of divinity” thing kind’a sprained my brain.**)

    Botox is used by plastic surgeons to paralyze muscles to smooth wrinkles in the face. Have there been any studies done on what happens to the patient if the needle goes too deep?

    ^^ Needle depth doesn’t really matter – Botox will migrate, including into the nervous system.

    So far it’s studies with mice, but if Bela Pelosi wants to donate her body to science, she… well, she could do so right now, for everyone’s sake.

    Is that 5 O’clock shadow on her upper lip or has she just finished a cup of cocoa freshly brewed for her by her faithful $3 a day undocumented Mexican maid?
