Know Your Mustelid!

Honestly, some people couldn’t tell a marten from a weasel if you hit them in the face with one.

HOQUIAM, Wash. – Police say a man was carrying a dead weasel when he burst into an apartment and assaulted a man in Washington state.

The victim asked, “Why are you carrying a weasel?” Police said the attacker answered, “It’s not a weasel, it’s a marten,” then punched him in the nose and fled.

And with the news that Mrs Weiner is pregnant, the Weinergate scandal is officially No Longer Fun for me.

Oh, not because I have a soft spot for motherhood (the failure to reproduce myself is my gift to the gene pool. You’re welcome).

It’s because — for people as ambitious and calculating as I take the Weiners to be — the suddenness and enormity of what just happened to Huma Abedin is…staggering. It makes cold sweat bead along my hairline, empathetically.

FAR harder to endure than if she’d married him for love (I cynically assume she didn’t).

Of course, I always had a sneaking sympathy for Lady MacBeth, too.
