Are you ready for this week’s absurdity? Here’s our Friday roll-up of the most ridiculous stories from around the world that are threats to your liberty, risks to your prosperity… and on occasion, inspiring poetic justice.
Congress Goes Gender Neutral, Starting with “Amen, and Awomen.”
It’s tradition that an opening prayer is read on the first day of the US House of Representatives.
Congressman Emanuel Cleaver led the prayer which he concluded, “Amen, and Awomen.”
Nevermind that ‘Amen’ does not at all refer to sex or gender, it comes from the historical Hebrew word meaning “so be it.”
(and I suppose that ‘awomen’ comes from herstorical Shebrew?)
