Happy Sunday to all, and I dearly hope you’re doing drunk posting of dick jokes from church. “Sunday” derives from the Latin term for “mimosas with a screwdriver chaser.” So that’s how we’re doing OUR Sunday. It is Cinco de Mayo, so drinking is obligatory- we’re moving to tequila next.

There are Cinco de Mayo birthdays, including someone who actually was worse than Hitler; a brilliant vocal blackface artist; and a guy who put American cuisine on the map.

Now for news. I’ll be busy drinking today.
