Mac McClung - First Dunk - 2023 NBA Slam Dunk Contest 🔥 - YouTube


(A wonderfully stinky pun!  And, speaking of stink, I think both of these guys are in dire need of a shower!  But, they’re not really talking law.  They’re just talking smack!  It’s what guys do when they’re competing.  Gals too, I suppose.  Not being a gal, I can’t say for sure.  With guys it’s more like a goofy kind of psychological warfare.  Make him laugh a little bit, or even a little pissed off.  As long as he loses a little focus.  I remember playing one-on-one with my buddy Danny G., right around the time of “Doctor My Eyes”, by Jackson Browne.  Whenever he had the ball I’d start singing “Doctor . . . my ba- alls!”  He’d break up, and I’d either steal the ball, or he’d muff the shot.  Hey, I needed an edge.  I’m a terrible dribbler.

It’s been a while, but yes.  We’ve seen all these clue words before.  Two of the jumbles appear to be new, but we’ve definitely seen “rufyr” and “roswor” previously.  I was able to see all the clue words straight away.  The answer letter layout was a terse ten letter jumble.  I thought it was craftily cryptic.  This time I saw COURT right away, then OF LAW.

Fine cartoon of the counselors of the court, unwinding after a tough week of torts and contracts and cases.  They used to say that white men can’t jump, but at the recent NBA All-Star Weekend a relatively diminutive – 6′ 2″, 180 lb – Mac McClung won the Slam Dunk contest, beating out the creme de la creme of the NBA.  Supposedly he’s got ball some handling problems, but this is one white kid that CAN jump!  If the NBA can’t find a home for him maybe he could join the Harlem Globetrotters!  They could use a little diversity.  LOL.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

55 Most Inspiring Madonna Quotes (2023) | Wealthy Gorilla

Power is being told you’re not loved and not being destroyed by it.”   —   Madonna

(I guess there was always the love her/hate her thing with Madonna.  Maybe, since a little before she came along, I have not been a fan of that kind of Pop music, so I was never a fan-boy.  But I always appreciated her moxie, and I always found her very easy on the eyes.  Now that she’s getting older she’s been getting a lot of flack for the work she has had done, and for trying too hard to appear youthful.  Growing old is tough on all of us, but probably more so for sex symbol/celebrities.  I say give her a break.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
