Happy Birthday, Deb Essen!

Happy Birthday, Deb Essen!

Marty’s photo of the day #2665: Today’s photo doubles as a Paul Bunyan-sized Happy Birthday to my wife, Deb Essen. When I took this photo of her, a while back, we were just having fun. In today’s light, it’s actually political. Melania Trump is infamous for appearing in photos that are incongruous for the occasion: […]

Your weekend Trump update

Your weekend Trump update

If you’re like me, you start each morning with a quick check of the news to see if you’ve been having a long bad dream and that Donald Trump is still just a game show host. Unfortunately it’s not a dream. But if you’d like to get an early start on the weekend, here’s a […]

Donald’s Switzerland date

Martyman gets rich!

Marty’s photo of the day #2307: Martyman is all excited, because I gave him a $5,000.00 bill. “With all this money, I can impress the ladies,” he said. “Maybe I can even get a mail-order stripper-bride, just like Melania Trump! Did I say stripper? I mean ‘high-class model-bride.’” Poor Martyman is in for a letdown. […]

Marty’s photo of the day #1919: I had a great time performing my show at Western Washington University last night. Since it was a late night show, I headed straight for my hotel room afterwards. The room was a deluxe suite, with a hot tub, and since it had only a single king bed, Martyman […]

Martyman watches the Republican National Convention

Martyman watches the Republican National Convention

Hi! Martyman here. I’m filling in on this blog for Marty Essen, who has taken the night off to be with his wife, Deb. As a patriotic person, Marty believes it’s every citizen’s duty to watch both the Republican and Democratic National Conventions. However, his definition of “patriotism” seems to be looser than most, as […]

Just like her husband, Melania Trump steals

Just like her husband, Melania Trump steals

After watching the Republican National Convention last night, I went to sleep disgusted by all of the hate, lies, and misinformation spewed forth. However, I felt kind of proud of myself that I was open minded enough to like much of Melania Trump’s speech. She was articulate and handled herself well in what was obviously […]
