Sunday funnies

Net profit of Paco Enterprises may be a little off this year.

Paco Jr. got a letter in the mail from his health insurance provider which informed him that, due to ObamaCare, he was getting a partial premium refund. Enclosed was a check for...thirteen cents (hey, I just totally take back everything I said against the legislation).

A funny image, found at Fishersville Mike's:

(You didn't really think I was going to take it all back, did you?)

(H/T: The Daily Caller)

Steve Burri, with an assist from Lance, creates the perfect symbol for Washington, D.C.

Happy Pi Approximation Day!

Is that thirteen cents a one-time benefit, or an annual windfall?

The Big O said you could keep your current insurance, if you're happy with it. Who wouldn't be happy with a huge refund, like that?

Paco said...

I believe it's a one-off.

Drinks on the house!

If I had the ambition, and Photoshop skills, I'd make a more accurate image of Obama's idea of business growth.

Picture looking up from a grave, seeing a shovel full of dirt being thrown in.

"If you look at your business's history, and see yourself being buried.

Know that this was the time Obama buried you."

Somewhat off topic here Paco but big news downunder was that Tony Abbott, Leader of the Opposition, was in a meeting with the VP who twice addressed him as "Mr Prime Minister" (a solecism of course, it's just Prime Minister).

Has this made news in the States? And is it proof that Biden is not the sharpest tool in the box or alternatively proof of his political genius in that he is buttering up a vital ally in the knowledge that Abbott almost certainly will be PM next year?

cac: The only place I recall seeing a reference to the incident was at Tim Blair's; however, the U.S. media has enough trouble just keeping up with Biden's stateside gaffes.

I don't think Biden is clever enough to have misspoken on purpose in order to flatter Abbott. Sounds like, as our media are fond of putting it, "Joe being Joe".

Commiserations on the shutting down of vital parts of Paaconet! Still, you can take comfort in your el Presidente's assurance that "You didn't build that".

Albury: That's right! I owe it all to Al Gore.
