    Prieur:

    I never “noticed” that your website had a “Humor” tag until this morning. Nice touch!

    After quickly perusing the short quips, I thought of a corollary to this one:

    Pre-1990
    Times have changed. Long ago when men beat the ground with sticks and cursed, it was called witchcraft. Today, it’s called golf.

    Post-2009
    Times sure have changed. Long ago when men beat the ground with sticks and cursed, it was called witchcraft. Then in the 1980s, it was called golf. Nowadays, it’s called outrageously incompetent government.
