In Case You've Wondered

My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.

If you're here for the stories, I started another blog:

One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.

I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.

Ass Clown Syndrome

 Psychiatry has tons of syndromes to describe unexplained behavior, but one I think needs to be added is "Ass Clown Syndrome" (ACS). What is this? It's the illogical belief someone that is exceedingly stupid will make a fine leader. How they arrive at this belief is unexplainable, but it's real. 

In Texas we have a man named Robert Francis O'Rourke that goes by the name Beto. He's stupid...exceedingly stupid, and has few (if any) redeeming qualities. He makes stupid statements, backtracks on the statement, reinstates his belief in the statement, and in brazing stupidity, doesn't remove himself from the public eye even when there are pictures of his drunken self proudly showing he pissed his pants. Nevertheless, people voted for him, which is unexplainable except those that did are suffering from ACS.  

I have relatives with a good education, can only be described as very bright, were raised by respectable parents, and still voted for Beto. They love him, which made me scratch my head, until I realized they were suffering from ACS.  It's a terrible thing, and as far as I can tell, it's untreatable. It's a modern tragedy, but maybe a cure will be found in the future. We can only hope.


  1. Well said, Jess! And humorous :)

  2. Is ACS the same as HUA (head up ass) syndrome?

    1. The mental diagnosis is almost identical, but HUA syndrome involves a very invasive surgery.

  3. Beto is a parody of a human being. I seem to recall angering him back in 2018 by responding to one of his very insipid tweets.
