Can it already be Week 4? Why, yes, it is.
The rules? I will supply you with the names of two people. You have to choose which one you would jump. Do not let your sexual orientation get in the way of playing. Do not let the living status of the options get in your way. You must choose one of the two. Suicide is not an option. “Jump,” of course, is a polite way of saying “having your way with sexually.” (But you knew that, didn't you?)
Hey, what was the score in last week's installment? Only six people played last week. I guess people didn't pay attention when I said you must choose one of the two. Yes, it was grotesque, forcing you to choose between Barry Bonds and Michael Vick. BTW, it was 6 votes for Bonds and goose egg for Vick.
Let's make it easier for you all this week. Envelope, please.
Jump One is none other than the esteemed 41st president of the United States of America, George Herbert Walker Bush. A one-term president, he beat out George "The Tank" Dukakis to succeed one of our most beloved presidents of all time, Ronald Reagan. Bush the Elder's resume is awesome: prep school boy, Naval war hero in WWII, Yalie, U.N. ambassador, CIA director, vice president to Reagan and, last but not lease, president of these here United States. Lots of stuff during his four years in office, not the least of which was the first Gulf War and NAFTA. Oh, he also gave us Pepsi-drinking Clarence Thomas. Wow! Hard not to choose him?
Then, by all means, please consider Jump Two: our very own 43rd president of the U.S., George Walker Bush. In your face, daddy, 'cause Dubya is a two-term president, beating first Al "Chicken Little" Gore and then John "Horse Face" Kerry. His other vitals ain't as good as his pop, although he, too, was a Yalie. He was also the governor of Texas and made his mark in the Texas National Guard. I'm thinking you're all fairly familiar with what's happened on his watch -- September 11, 2001, the invasions and never-ending wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, the war on terror, No Child Left Behind, the weeks-old pardon of Scooter. Again, wow! He's sure done a lot. But, as we know, he's had twice the time as his dead old dad.
What's it gonna be?
If you had asked me 15 years ago if I would have chosen George the Elder over anyone other than Barbara or Ronald Reagan, I'd have laughed my butt off. Who's laughing now? Oh, H.W., take me. I'm yours. Just don't leave me with that boy of yours.
