Comics are having a field day making fun of the president of China’s name —– Hu.
The old “Hu’s on first” chestnut is roasting on the open bonfires of the insanities again.
“Hu’s the presient of China.”
“I don’t know. Who?”
“You know, Hu.”
“No I don’t know who.”
“I wouldn’t think so. Hu’s the president of China.”
“I’m telling you I don’t know who!”
Or this exchange:
“The Who is performing at the State Dinner.”
“I don’t know who?”
“The president of China is performing at the State Dinner?”
“No, the other Who.”
“Why is the president of China performing at the State Dinner?”
“No, Hui is the president of Cambodia.”
“I keep telling you I don’t know who the president of China is. I’m a Salahi. I crashed the party and will only dance with who brung me.”
“The president of China brought you?”
“I don’t think Yoo was invited. He’s the evil dictator in North Korea.”
“No, Yoo Wat is president of Thailand…”
With a name like Hu, this would be one time even an idiot like Sarah “blood libel” Palin could get the name of a foreign leader correct without even knowing it.
Another funny name in the news is that of the new chairman of the Republican National Committee. One Reince Priebus.
No fooling, that’s his real name. He defeated controversial RNC chairman Michael Steele, who ran into —- and was responsible for —- more than enough controversy for the GOP over the last two years as head of the RNC.
Reince Priebus. Is that Republican, born with a silver-spoon in his mouth sounding enough for ya?
Reince Priebus —- sounds like the name of an expensive car made by Swiss engineers in Europe.
You can almost hear the TV ad now:
“Only the most elegant of Americans can afford to drive and be pampered by the luxury of the Reince Priebus. Made in Europe by workers who took American jobs.
The age of luxury is back — and in the glove-laden hands of the top 2 percent of the wealthiest of Americans. Purchased with the tax breaks they’re getting courtesy of the Republican Party.”
Reince Priebus —- it also sounds like maybe it could be the name of a new dog star in our solar system discovered by the Hubble Telescope.
Here’s the TV sound bite: “The dog star reince priebus is a pesky little dog star that Superman could’ve passed on his way to Earth. You know — Superman, the Man of Michael Steele.”
Here’s another stretch of the imagination: Reince Priebus the name of a new chronic illness the pharmaceutical companies can get you to believe you have. And their ad campaign will feature a drug you can take to get it to go away.
The TV ad pitch would go something like this:
“Can’t sleep at night? Lame at work and in the bedroom? Feeling depressed because you’re butt-ugly? Do you suffer from chronic headaches while not being able to keep your food down? You could be suffering from RP: reince priebus.
Be sure to take our product if you are already taking any other medicine we bamboozled into making you buy. Don’t use our product if you’ve been drinking, working or living in sin without being married, or conducting an intelligent conversation with your pet. Our product won’t help you stop wanting to be gay and it could cause endless urination and chromosome damage. If you think you have RP, call your doctor right away.”
“Hello. is this Doctor Rightaway?”
Then there’s the reality that Reince has to eventually (if he hasn’t already) make the rounds on Fox Fabricates News, where he will be gloated over by Sean Insanity and Baba O’Reilly.
And when Reince has to worship at the robes of the Christ-like figure of the 21st century, Glenn Beck, it could be referred to as “Priebus and Butt-head.”
Finally, it’s perfect timing that Regis Philbin is retiring from his daytime talk show with Kelly what’s-her-face.
The new RNC chairman can go the Palin way and become a celebrity politician and moonlight by filling in as the talk show co-host.
He’d have to change his already goofy sounding name. This time out, though, it just might work.
Ladies and gentlemen —– Regis Priebus.
“I know, the president of China….”
