Because we start out the new year having our manufactured phrases running into each other.

For we are alleged to be simultaneously “falling off a cliff” while “hitting the ceiling“.

It’s almost as if we’re being governed by bad salespeople.

Oh, wait.

The latest deal passed the Senate with an overwhelmingly bipartisan 89-8 count. So it must be awful.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
