    It looks like one of those progressions where you eventually end up with a neanderthal!

  3. Only problem is that the joke has been told with just about every job category as the person in the basket. It's fun but 'prejudice laden'.

  5. Where's a faceslap when you want one? Oh! From the BBC: 'I don't see any virus flying around!' - Belarus leader Getty ImagesCopyright: Getty Images Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko has laughed off the suggestion that his country should try to stem the spread of the coronavirus, because he can't see the virus "flying around". Speaking to a TV reporter at an indoor ice hockey match, he also claimed that crowds at the match were fine because the coldness of the stadium would prevent the virus from spreading. There is no evidence that this could be the case and the coronavirus cannot be seen with the naked eye. Unlike most of Europe, Belarus has not placed any restrictions on sports events. "There are no viruses here," Mr Lukashenko said. "You haven't seen them flying around, have you? I don't see them either! This is a fridge. Sport, particularly the ice, this fridge here, that's the best antiviral cure!"

    Three Republicans voted against the measure: GOP members Ted Yoho of Florida, Louie Gohmert of Texas and Thomas Massie of Kentucky. The chamber's lone Independent, Justin Amash of Michigan—who famously switched from Republican to Independent over his support for impeaching President Donald Trump—also voted no. Reasons? U.S. Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Tyler, was among four U.S. House members who voted against a bill Wednesday that would make lynching a federal hate crime. But his opposition centered on the bill’s maximum 10-year prison sentence, which “almost trivializes such a heinous offense,” he said in a statement. Yoho voted against the lynching protections, he told CNN’s Manu Raju, because it’s an “overreach of the federal government and tramples on states rights.” "I voted against (the bill) because the Constitution specifies only a handful of federal crimes, and leaves the rest to individual states to prosecute," Massie told The Courier Journal on Wednesday. "In addition, this bill expands current federal 'hate crime' laws. A crime is a crime, and all victims deserve equal justice. Adding enhanced penalties for 'hate' tends to endanger other liberties such as freedom of speech." “Creating federal crimes for matters that are normally handled by the state obscures which government — federal or state — is responsible for investigating and prosecuting the crime, and it gives power to unelected federal officials whom voters can’t directly hold accountable,” Amash tweeted. “This allows state officials who don’t adequately address particular crimes to shift blame and avoid accountability. At the same time, it creates an incentive for budget-constrained state and local governments not to prosecute crimes and instead leave it to the feds.”
