This really needs a live report from WKRP's Less Nessman, similar to his Turkey Drop reporting.

I thought the use of 'duck' made for cleaner joke line as well as sharpening the reference to an authentic media icon.


duck verb
ducked; ducking; ducks

Definition of duck (Entry 2 of 4)

intransitive verb
1a : to lower the head or body suddenly : dodge
b : bow, bob
2a : to move quickly
b : to evade a duty, question, or responsibility
3a : to plunge under the surface of water
b : to descend suddenly : dip

Such a Travisty.

(They were merely out exercising their God-given, constitutional rights to be stupid.)

What's the worst that could happen?

As a friend points out, avoiding the predictable wake-related swamping would have required those in the bigger boats to care about the smaller ones.

As if.

I nearly drowned during the MAGA boat parade on Lake Travis. I won't wear a mask, no way I was going to wear that life jacket they kept throwing at me.

AP:
Sheriff: Five boats sank in Texas Trump parade, no injuries
Dark said that weather on the roughly 19,000-acre (7,690-hectare) lake was calm, but that the tightly packed boats created large waves in areas. Deputies have found no evidence of foul play, she said.

The first call for help came at 12:15 p.m., and later distress calls were for boats taking on water, stalled engines and capsizing, Dark said.

Three of the boats that sank were towed to shore, while the other two were still at the bottom of the lake, she said.

Hey RgrF, That's a photoshop job of a boat that sunk over here in MI. back in June. Someone is having fun with the facts.

Here's the real story. [www.record-eagle.com]



Mr. Lahey: A lot of people, don’t know how to drink. They drink against the grain of the liquor. And when you drink against the grain of the liquor? You lose.

Randy: What the @#$%& are you talking about?
