Why is a Down East Divorce Like a Tornado?

...In both situations you lose the trailer.

Ripped from the headlines of today's local paper:

Rockland man rescued after being pinned under mobile home

He'd have been better off with an igloo, which would have been pretty easy to come by in these parts this month. I don't know which is more distressing: the way-too-early cumulative mountains of snow (even for Old Timey Maine) or the blizzard of idiots proclaiming smugly, "So much for this global warming, ayuh!"

Because as we all know, a life in small town Maine after getting a degree from the school of hard knocks qualifies one as an expert climatologist, more capable of pronouncing on global environmental trends than an army of dedicated scientists.

the beauty/horror of the global warming joke is that it can be used in almost any temperature situation. cold day in September? so much for global warming! 60 degrees in February? this global warming thing isn't so bad!

and i'm with you - eventually i'm just going to explode when some mouth breather makes one of these stupid jokes at the end of a stressful day.
