Quidnunc, whose name comes from the Latin “what now,” is out and about as often as possible to bring you news overheard in elevators, rest rooms and spied in various e-mail boxes.
QUID HAS HEARD the pathos will be at perihelion as news gets around that Quid is not only still undead, but Quid is back. Yes, Quid lives, much to the chagrin of government types, oafs and our dear intelligent readers. Thanks to the miracles of modern medicine, fine Colorado whiskey and some extra space in this lamentable rag, your humble affiant writes again.
AND SO, QUID HAS HEARD, that although A-Town and this sad-sack state desperately needs a Congresspersona Lauren Boebert Tweet Revenge Award, there is no need to search for the premier winner of that lamentable distinction. Dear readers, we have a D’ohbert winner, and it is Gregg Bergan. “Who” query all but Councilperson Francoise Bergan, cringing along with the words here? That’s right. The first-spouse of the Honorable Lawmaker in Southeast A-Town rips it up many, many times a day on Twitter, giving even Colorado’s own Queen of Mien a run for top-tweeted foul balls. Monsieur Bergan appeared to lay low until late, and now spends much of his 128-character treatises lamenting a lack of followers, save for Quid. Often the savvy ad exec offers Boebertian commentary that perhaps even she would leave un-posted, such as these chef-d’œuvre: “I feel like if I had boobs I’d have a lot more followers. But that is a line I will not cross.”
Really? With so many lines crossed on this account, why stop at something so pedestrian?
Then there’s this Boebertonian jewel: “Are there zoos in Africa?”
Allow your faithful hack to chime in in advance of what was certain to be a future tweet: Yes, they do have zoos, and books and electricity. See: Google.
But showing that winky winky slam-one-slam all to the mat mentality, this plum appeared to be ripe recently: “A television network rejected one of my commercials because they said the Amish might be insulted by it. When they saw it on TV. Let that sink in.”
Sink appears to be the key word.
AND THAT’S ALL THE NEWS THAT FITS.
