Random Thoughts for Saturday, April 11th, 2020

First, a big THANKS for all the kind words and comments on my “Random Thoughts” yesterday. I actually expected to get more kick-back than I did. I’m glad I’m not the only one that feels that way about the latest Executive Stay at Home and do nothing order.

OK, onward we go. Here are today’s “Random Thoughts”.

I love how creative people are getting with their parody songs. Some of these are so well done.

Thank you to Kristie for sending me this one…



As a kid I couldn’t wait for the new issue of “Mad” magazine or “Cracked” magazine to hit the newstand. I loved those publications.

I was saddened to hear of the passing of Mort Drucker. Mort was “Mad” magazine’s longest-tenured artist. He also did the poster for the movie “American Graffiti”. Mort died on Thursday at the age of 91. No cause of death was given.
