Fill in the missing word:
Hit the nail on the (blank).
Use your (blank).
Go to the (blank) of the line.
California senator and 2020 presidential candidate Kamala Harris wants to be (blank) of this country.
Her recent statement about marijuana, and her admission she smoked pot in college, suggests her head line – the so-called ‘wisdom line’ in Chinese Palm Reading – is very short.
Persons with short head lines, so the interpretation goes, “are usually slow to respond, hasty, careless, indecisive and impulsive.”
And probably smoked pot in college.
How else are we to understand what Harris said?
“I think it (marijuana) gives a lot of people joy. And we need more joy in the world.”
Everyone sing along now:
“Jeremiah was a bull frog
Was a good friend of mine
I never understood a single word he said
But I helped him drink his wine
And he always had some mighty fine wine
Joy to the world
All the boys and girls now
Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea
Joy to you and me.”
Though even the members of Three Dog Night thought the words to their hit single “Joy to the World” were “silly” and “nonsensical”, should Harris win the Democratic nomination – and even win the 2020 election becoming (blank) of the country – then, like the Denver Broncos who play “Joy to the World” after every home victory, Harris can link arms with Jeremiah the bull frog (her new mascot?) and lead from the national stage as all Americans link arms and dance and sing along.
While the confetti fall.
And cannabis is consumed.
What a wonderful world it will be.
No doubt there’s more to Harris than just tuned-out joy and happiness.
