Trump's father may not have been an orangutan....

......but I think the jury is still out on Donald himself. I'm surprised he hasn't thrown his hat (or his hair) into the ring for the soon-to-be-vacated job of Pope.

Your sensitivity continues scraping the bottom of the abyss.

Are you related to The Donald? You certainly exhibit similar absence of a sense of humour, intelligence or a sense of what comments are beyond the Pale in a multi-racial society. The "Negro-Ape" analogy was considered in poor taste in the late 19th Century.

To make a joke, assuming you thought you were, you need to have some species of correlation to reality for it to work. Orang-utan (which means Old Man of the Woods, incidentally) are not native to Africa, or Hawaii, or Chicago.

However your commentary has proved one thing. You are very distantly related to a Human Being. They evolved, clearly you haven't.

Liberals joke, Conservatives joke, we all have a good laugh, yes?

Light bulbs you shouldn't buy

There are plenty of dimmable LED light bulbs, but make sure you don't buy the ones that flicker when you dial them down.
