In colemak, if you try to type "type", but unbeknownst to you, some MEDDLER has switched back to qwerty, it will come out "fork".

In the reverse case, you would get e;sn, which isn't such a cute coincidence

I don't know what this is a reference to, but does it involve using a lute-like instrument as a club, because that's what I think is about to happen?

I misread the title, and thought it was a poster for Inherit the Wind.

Which would make this a very loose adaptation, and one I’d want to see badly.

Does Jack McNaughton count as a "fan artist?" Because I think he does. He also counts as bewildering.



So what is going on here? I think the premise is Trump is teaching a misguided youth (you know he's misguided because he's reading. About socialism!) to fish because the artist is under some sort of misapprehension that a) fishing represents an alternative to liberalism, I guess and b) that Trump would or could fish. This is like the opposite of any activity that he would want to do. He wouldn't want to do something that challenges the dexterity of his fingers, would result in him being outside for an extended period or would require patience.

I think this is riffing on the "give a man a fish/teach a man to fish" proverb? Also, I would not have pegged that guy as a youth.

When you have enough Dragon Energy, you can redeem it for extra stat points. Donald Trump used his and respecced as an expert fisherman, and is trying to teach some ungrateful millennial all about the joys of fishing.

But, like they say, if you teach a millennial to fish, they won’t. Because they’re too busy looking at their damn screens and also concerned about sustainability.

I’m not pleased with Donald Trump wearing a tiny dress that shows off his butthole when he runs either.

But that’s how they decided to market it.

They are just giving the people what they want. Or fear. One of the two.

"So this is the bait, right?"

"No, Mr. President, that's a lure. You hook the bait on the--"

"I don't like these worms, they're wiggly and slimy and sad."

"Those are fishing reels, sir."

"When do we get to flying fish?"

"Fly fishing, sir."

"I don't like it, you either fly or you fish, you can't do both. Don't collude me."

"Confuse, sir. You mean confuse."

"No confusion! Hillary confuded!"

"*sigh*"

That reminds me of an actual quote from Comey's book (from a review):

“They write these things out one at a time, by hand,” he marveled, referring to the White House staff.

“A calligrapher," I replied, nodding.

He looked quizzical. “They write them by hand,” he repeated.
I suspect that Trump's paternal fisherman scenario would be more along the lines of swinging the pole around wildly trying to get the hook somewhere into the younger man's body, and crowing with delight when he did.

That really looks more like the Alec Baldwin version than the real one.
