Greenland

I was thinking I might write something clever on the aforementioned topic for today’s post. But the reality is just too ridiculous.

Everybody I ran into today pretty much started laughing uncontrollably whenever the topic came up. It seems that they all had that initial moment when they just thought “Wait, is this some kind of out-of-season April fools joke?”

By now we are used to seeing crazy stuff whenever we look at the news. But at what point is something simply too inane to even be real?

Every day the threshold of “too ridiculous to be true” continues to creep a little higher. But some days that threshold jumps clear out of the atmosphere and floats right to the moon.

This is one of those days. I mean, seriously folks.

Sorry, have to stop now. I just can’t stop giggling.

    It is odd to think, that just a century and a half ago, you actually could just write a check and acquire territory on the scale of Alaska.

    You probably still can, if you can find one that big. But you still can’t buy an autonomous region with its own Parliament.

    According to CNN, Alaska was acquired about half a century ago. It seems they confused acquisition of the territory (about a century and a half ago) with its statehood (about 60 years ago).

    I couldn’t find a reference to someone from CNN saying that. Can you provide one?
