Wordgames

Funny stuff, word games.  Free association can lead you in all kinds of pleasant and surprising directions.  Or even unpleasant and shocking.  Example: back in 1971 there was a novelist named Joy Chant who wrote a book titled “Red Moon and Black Mountain”. It was about all the standard stuff; a young wizard fighting entrenched evil, that sort of thing.  If you wanted to do a little association trip and write a book about Barack Hussein Obama, you might title it “Black Clown and White House”.  Now, people tend to think the president is an incredibly sharp knife, so much so that he has his very own little closet in the drawer.  Where he does important and world-saving stuff like watching soaps (Mad Men, House MD), sports, and sorting his golf clubs.

As luck (or maybe boredom) would have it, I have just been watching lots of “House MD”, evilly squirreled away on VHS tapes.  And the strange thing is that Obama bin Fraud seems to have been extraordinarily obsessed with this TV-series.  So much so that he hired one of the actors (Kal Penn, who plays Dr. Kuttner and is tragically killed when he needed to leave the series to go hold Mr. Obama’s hand.  Dr. Kuttner has a competitor in the series, Dr. Taub.  Dr. Taub is a Jew, and is not well liked by the series title figure who is a tortured genius obsessed with saving the world and being right.  And even more importantly, proving everyone else, particularly the Jew, wrong.

So it would seem that El Presidente has a soft spot for the tortured savior.  Which leads us to the joke.  Sort of.  Maybe there’s even jokes inside jokes here.

House may be portrayed as a genius in the series, but for people who know (and remember), the actor who plays House is perhaps more known as Bertie Wooster, the slack-jawed upper-crust village idiot who is a member of the Drone Club and a puppet of his manservant Jeeves.

So who or what is Jeeves in the White Household?  And is he/she/it having fun?

Lol. I know I am. Are you?
