Leaning Into a Moment of Laughter

Ken at Digital Common Sense grabbed a laugh out of my harried world with his post today, “Revocation of U.S. Independence”:

In light of your failure to elect a competent President of the USA and thus to govern yourselves, we hereby give notice of the revocation of your independence, effective immediately. Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will resume monarchical duties over all states, commonwealths, and territories (excepting Kansas, which she does not fancy).

It goes on from there with clever turns of thought, including “a questionnaire [that] may be circulated next year to determine whether any of you noticed.” Check out the rest of the post – just for fun, and don’t miss the follow-up on “Homeland Security.”

Best chuckle I've had lately! And much needed! Thanks! Will probably pass this one along, with appropriate credit to you, the "finder".
