Oh, For Pete's Sake. Magic?
March 18, 2016

Y’all, I almost skipped over this story when Fred Farklestone sent it to me this morning because I thought, “Well, even ole Fred got fooled by a satire story.”

This is true. Texas Congessfool Pistol Pete Sessions introduced a resolution about magic.

It’s even been posted for the betterment of the nation oncongress.gov.

Whereas magic is an art form with the unique power and potential to impact the lives of all people;Whereas magic enables people to experience the impossible;Whereas magic is used to inspire and bring wonder and happiness to others;Whereas magic, like the great art forms of dance, literature, theater, film, and the visual arts, allows people to experience something that transcends the written word;

No. Just no. It’s magic. It’s a trick. It ain’t real.

The only magic involved here is that Pistol Pete can find his office to the office. The secret to that trick is that somebody has to walk him.

Can you help us out?
