Saturday Odds & Sods: The Best Of Adrastos 2021

Merry Christmas from Bad Santa & Thurman Merman.

It’s been a tough year for everyone, but hard times are good for satire: I have posted 583 times thus far in 2021. I am not making this up.

Being that prolific made winnowing down this list difficult. I started with 80 candidates then cut it to a top-50 list. I’ve done that in past years but Dr. A encouraged me to cut it to a top-40 list. When she speaks, I listen.

I’ve done something different this year. Instead of text links, I’ve used the image links below. That means it will not pop up in a separate tab and you’ll have to click back to the main post. It’s not as hard as it sounds.  Plus, you get to experience the featured images that brought the posts to life. The image box things are different shapes and sizes because WordPress. What can I tell ya? I’m a writer, not a tech person.

Without further ado, I give you the sixth annual Best Of Adrastos arranged in chronological order.

It may not be much of a Christmas present, but it will have to do until I can score some coal for your stockings. Maybe I should ask the Man of La Manchin.

I guess that last paragraph qualifies as further ado. Oh well, what the hell.
