    ... into chaos.

    At this point, it's pointless to argue any of these issues. I will see you folks after the election is over to pick up the pieces and hopefully move forward. Regardless who wins, I urge the losing party to give up obstructionism and embrace compromise. To the winner belongs the spoils.

    But until next week, you guys are are your own. Play nice.

    Um.

    Just what are you trying to suggest with this image?

    A silly pun?

    Or - an incomplete - or insufficient - knowledge of airship aviation history?

    The Hindenburg resembles a loaf shape; toast symbolizes burnt. Hillary’s campaign: The Hilldenburg.

    Oh, for heaven's sake.

    But, thank you for furnishing an explanation. Quite candidly, I hadn't seen the significance - if any - of your image. Thus, I thought it forced.

    A loaf?

    Why not show an actual loaf of bread?

    I assumed you were merely showing a clear scientific illiteracy in attempting to link Hillary Rodham Clinton's campaign to that of an airship that crashed into a pylon and exploded.

    Most airships were powered by hydrogen - a widely available, but highly unstable - gas. However, the airships powered by helium were exceptionally stable, so I merely assumed that you hadn't a notion of what you were talking - writing - about, and that your metaphor was the usual forced and contrived nonsense.

    You are the better man. :)

    In fact, anyone still arguing has proven likewise.

    Starting right ... now!

    Look, see that? That’s the Hilldenburg flying right over your head. Now see that? That’s the Hilldenburg imploding in flames and collapsing to the ground.

    Sorry, @Jess13 - I actually studied the history of aviation at school. Boring stuff, such as intellectual curiosity, and all that.

    As a result, I find it hard to take this nonsense seriously, even as a metaphor.

    Well clearly you didn’t study enough.

    German Rye Loaf

    Gee, that sure has the resemblance we see in the Hindenburg’s shape.

    @jkcerda said that Hillary is toast. Bread is toast; toast being burnt. Hindenburg resembles a loaf of German bread. Hence, Hillary’s flaming implosion’s a full loaf of burnt toast. The Hilldenburg.

    I feel dumb that I had to explain this twice.

    A loaf shaped object depositing secreted material was also the cause of your birth, but I digress. Many things resemble an airship of that era.

    Jason Heuser is a humor artist. He's done that for actors, and past and current serving president.

    Er, um, what?

    My grades - and scholarships - will confirm I studied.......more than adequately.

    This is still a forced analogy. It may be what you see, but without significant signposts, it is not what most of the rest of us will see.

    Anyway, I know - and eat - and enjoy - German rye bread - and - as it happens - have studied aviation history.

    A picture of a toaster - and indeed, burnt toast if that was what you wished to try to suggest - would have sufficed instead of this forced - and fatuous - analogy.

    And no, unless the resemblance is pointed out it is not remotely clear.

    Seriously, you'll have to do better than that. Very poor, actually, as it is contrived, forced, and rather undewhelming.

    You may have to explain it a third time as it was so poorly expressed and explained the first time.

    But that is the problem with attempts at supposed humour. Sometimes, it doesn't travel - or translate - all that well........

    At least he's admitting he's the halfwit we know he is. That's a step in the right direction.

    Er, yes, that was probably what I should have said.
