I have no idea how this happened.  But it’s so funny it makes me wince.

COSTELLO: I want to talk about America’s unemployment rate.
.ABBOTT: Good Subject. Terrible Times. It’s 4.7%.
.

COSTELLO: That many people are out of work?
.

ABBOTT: No, that’s 23%.
.

COSTELLO: You just said 4.7%.
.

ABBOTT: 4.7% Unemployed.
.

COSTELLO: Right–4.7% out of work.
.

ABBOTT: No, that’s 23%.
.

COSTELLO: Okay, so it’s 23% unemployed.
.

ABBOTT: No, that’s 4.7%.

 

COSTELLO: WAIT A MINUTE. Is it 4.7% or 23%?
.

ABBOTT: 4.7% are unemployed. 23% are out of work.
.

COSTELLO: If you are out of work you are unemployed.

.

ABBOTT: No, Obama said you can’t count the “Out of Work” as the unemployed. You have to look for work to be unemployed.

.

COSTELLO: BUT THEY ARE OUT OF WORK!!!

.

ABBOTT: No, you miss his point.
.

COSTELLO: What point?

.

ABBOTT: Someone who doesn’t look for work can’t be counted with those who look for work. It wouldn’t be fair.

.

COSTELLO: To whom?

.
ABBOTT: The unemployed.
.

COSTELLO: But ALL of them are out of work.
.

ABBOTT: No, the unemployed are actively looking for work. Those who are out of work gave up looking and if you give up, you are no longer in the ranks of the unemployed.
.

COSTELLO: So if you’re off the unemployment roles that would count as less unemployment?
.

ABBOTT: Unemployment would go down. Absolutely!
.

COSTELLO: The unemployment just goes down because you don’t look for work?
.

ABBOTT: Absolutely it goes down. That’s how it gets to 5.6%. Otherwise it would be 23%.

.

COSTELLO: Wait, I got a question for you. That means there are two ways to bring down the unemployment number?

.
ABBOTT: Two ways is correct.
.

COSTELLO: Unemployment can go down if someone gets a job?
.

ABBOTT: Correct.
.

COSTELLO: And unemployment can also go down if you stop looking for a job?
.

ABBOTT: Bingo.
.

COSTELLO: So there are two ways to bring unemployment down, and the easier of the two is to have people stop looking for work.
.

ABBOTT: Now you’re thinking like a Democrat.
.

COSTELLO: I don’t even know what the hell I just said!
.

ABBOTT: Now you’re thinking like Hillary.

I’d buy an Italian-made seat belt any time.

They appear to be very well-tested.

Hillary and Trump Walk Into a Bar

I received the following “joke” in an email.  I don’t know who first wrote it.

 

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are in a bar.   Donald leans over, and with a smile on his face, says,

“The media are really tearing you apart for That Scandal.”

Hillary: “You mean my lying about Benghazi?”
Trump: “No, the other one.”

Hillary: “You mean the massive voter fraud?”
Trump: “No, the other one.”

Hillary: “You mean the military not getting their votes counted?”
Trump: “No, the other one.”

The First Stepford Wife

Wikipedia sez:

 

The Stepford Wives is a 1972 satirical thriller novel by Ira Levin. The story concerns Joanna Eberhart, a  photographer and young mother who begins to suspect that the frighteningly submissive housewives in her new idyllic Connecticut neighborhood may be robots created by their husbands. The book has had two feature film adaptations, both using the same title as the novel: the critically acclaimed 1975 version and the critically panned 2004 remake.

“While the 1975 film was a moderate success at the time of release, it has grown in stature as a cult film over the years.  Building upon the reputation of Levin’s novel, the term “Stepford” or “Stepford Wife” has become a popular science fiction concept and several sequels were shot, as well as a remake in 2004 using the same title, but rewritten as a comedy instead of a serious horror/thriller film.”

Well, the satire and comedy are missing from the video below.  This video recounts how one man fixated on actress Scarlett Johansson built a robot to look like her for $50,000.  I don’t know which is creepier:  the robot/Stepford-Wife or its inventor.
