I am NOT a monkey.
My state has a prepaid tuition program known as GET.
Sadly, it has a projected deficit of about $631 million.
I know, I know, chump change because it’s only an “illion” with an M and not a B or a Tr, but some of our senators are calling for its discontinuation anyway.
To quote one of our fine representatives –
“The GET is the 800-pound gorilla and the tail is wagging the dog.”
Yeah, I’m pretty sure he said this with a straight face.
And I just can’t help myself, but I simply MUST respond.
Gorillas DO NOT have tails.
Your license to metaphor has been revoked.
My work here is done.
PROMPT: Political speak is such an AMAZING skill – it’s like a superpower! Write a thousand words of material today, just be sure that it says ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. Who knows, this could be the start of a new career for you!
