When last we met on June 30, I left open whether my future posts would be on an every-ten-days schedule or on a when-the-spirit-moves-me non-schedule. Seeing as how most of us live in a democracy (not to be confused with a demagogracy?), I decided to put the matter to a secret vote. My fellow Americans, base supporters, and gulliblites everywhere, I hereby and now and forever proclaim that the outcome is in!

Yes, friends, the results are in, and doubtless you are on tenterhooks, dying to learn the winner — as well you should be — but kindly hang in there. After all, I’m trying to build up a little suspense here.

DRUM R-O-L-L, please. It is my dis-stinked honor and privilege to announce that 100% of the eligible voters, consisting of me, myself and I (in cahoots with Charlie Barnowl — who? — let’s stop for a spell: it’s Barnet), have opted to vote for….

I confess that Barnet, being deceased, could vote in spirit only. But spirits are flighty, to say the least. Will the spirit stick around, pushing me to act when inspiration is at a peak to post? Other-wise, my frequency of posting will most likely depend on….

However, if my mood is down in the dumps, that doesn’t mean I can’t soar. You see, although I brook no Prohibition on drowning my sorrows — easy for me (not to mention myself & I) to speak — there are times….

Until next time, then — whenever that may be (ye know not the day or the hour) — me leaves myself and I with this reminder:

“The higher a drunk feels in the evening, the lower he feels in the morning.” –Evan Esar

    Great selection here Muse. I vote for whenever the spirit moves you too. I write whenever someone does something that makes me laugh.

    BTW we don’t live in a democracy. It’s a republic. There is a huge difference. And, the dead I am told have been known to vote. And, why shouldn’t they?

      Don, maybe we don’t live in a democracy here in America (at least while Trump is in charge), but my following is universal — or at least, FAR OUT, ha ha — so some followers no doubt do (live in a democracy). And with 20/20 hindsight in 2020, I predict Americans will vote the Republicans out, Democrats in, and the “republic” will again be a “democracy.”

    I may have to go to the “when the spirit moves me” schedule myself soon, Sr. Muse, so I sympathize

    Good luck with your hatred for Trump. I’m not sure what it is going to get you other than angry, frustrated and maybe indigestion. But the country is a Republic and always has been regardless of who the President was. The President any President does a lot in the eyes of the media but the actual running of the government goes on without him.

      Don, I told you before that I don’t hate Trump, but it seems you’ve either forgotten or you don’t believe me. Yes, I hate what he says and how he acts, but that’s not the same as hating the human being. Judging by the way that you overlook and excuse what he says and how he acts, one might think you love Trump, but I don’t accuse you of it.

      I recently promised you I won’t mention Trump when I comment on your posts. Maybe it’s time for you to return the favor when commenting here, as I don’t feel anything is to be gained (and something may be lost) by further exchanging unshakeable opinions about you-know-who.

    Well, I have to tell you that it’s always better to act when the spirit moves you as opposed to a kick in the arse. (err. . .metaphorically speaking, that is) 🙂

    Carmen, I might consider that an arsenine statement if I didn’t appreciate your down-to-earth sense of humus. 🙂

    P.S. I’d say more, but it’s time to imbibe some spirits (metaphorically speaking, of course).

    Yeah you told me hate the sin but not the sinner. But that’s religious double speak. We are the things we do. So if you hate what someone does, you hate them.

    Perhaps I’m wrong but you seem to be absolutely seething with hatred so much so that any mention of something vaguely related to the Presidency looses forth a tirade from you.

    I don’t love or hate any of these public people. From reading history I’ve learned that what we might think of a President while he’s in office, can be 180 degrees from what they are actually like. And that’s both good and bad. For example and this is nothing good or bad and had no effect on his Presidency but FDR was confined to wheelchair most of the time and most Americans had no idea. Leaving politics and history for a moment, Bill Cosby used to be America’s favorite Dad. Anyone’s public image is something they negotiate.

    But I’m not going to mention you know who here. I am actually a little worried about you. Being angry and hurling invective doesn’t seem to be who you are.

    Don, if I believed in religious double speak, I’d still be Catholic. What I DO believe is that your opinion of my “seething with hatred” is nothing more than your opinion. Sad (as you-know-who would say).


    • Carmen says:

      Don, I don’t know whose blogs you frequent, but mistermuse has been very diplomatic regarding Trump, in my opinion. If you’d like me to link to some other bloggers who DO display ‘seething hatred’, I’d be happy to do that! In fact, a scroll through Noseybook reveals the aforementioned quite readily.

    Okay Muse and Carmen maybe I read the comments wrong. I like to remember that half the time I’m wrong and the other half of the time I just don’t know what I’m talking about. Most of all I’m exhausted and bored to tears by the subject. I’m onto other things, more important things like Emily Ratajkowski and people engaging in clamorous coitus. This is at

      I must admit I clicked on that link with great trepidation. . . you know, because of mistermuse’s ‘family’ blog and all. 🙂
      (oh, and P.S. I don’t know what I’m talking about most of the time, so you got me beat!)


    • mistermuse says:

      Don, let’s just chalk this up as two people looking at the same guy and seeing him with different eyes. Since neither of us can change where we’re coming from, continuing on that course would be an exercise in futility. So, as you New Yawkers might say, let’s forgeddaboudit.

      I read your post on “clamorous coitus” but can’t think of anything interesting or clever to say aboudit, so my long commenting streak on your posts, I regret to say, has come to an end. Hopefully I can start a new streak next time.

    BTW I love the Speakeasy Three and intend to keep an eye out for them. Another great find Muse.

      The song the trio sings dates back to the early 1930s. They do a great job with it, and the whole production is well staged. I’ve already listened to it 3 or 4 times.

    You don’t have to comment on every article. Sometimes there is nothing to say. In one of the comments I added. “There are 8 million stories in The Naked City. This has been one of them.”

  12. I’m so slow. It took me three reads to figure this out. Clever, clever. 🙂 Thanks for the entertainment!
