I’ve added Lowering the Bar to the blogroll here because it is consistently funny and poignant at the same time.

Here’s the beginning of a recent post:

TSA Turns Away Mute Stroke Victim

“KABC in Los Angeles reported on April 5 that our heroes in the TSA had successfully prevented another innocent disabled person from flying. This time it was a wheelchair-bound stroke victim who couldn’t answer questions about her expired driver’s license because—also due to the stroke—she is mute.”

After telling the story, Kevin Underhill, the author comments:

“Maybe it’s not impossible that a terrorist would disguise herself as a 58-year-old mute stroke victim in a wheelchair (yes it is), but if she did, she would most likely not show up with an expired driver’s license. Don’t you think? Genius?”

Kevin writes books, too, such as “The Emergency Sasquatch Ordinance“. He assures us that this is a work of non-fiction and that all of the laws, ordinances, etc.  in this book a real — or at least were before they were laughed out of existence.
