Pink and blue from me to you

Behold the blossoms of a redbud tree (Cercis canadensis var. texensis) along Williamson County Rd. 110 in Round Rock on March 9th. By then the redbuds in and around Austin had finally begun to flower. Let’s hope that today’s early morning freeze hasn’t done the blossoms in—or if it has, that new ones will soon appear.

Check out a clever video parody from the Babylon Bee called
Brave Great White Shark Allowed To Compete In Women’s 500 Freestyle.” 

There’s also this take on an actual occurrence:
Ron DeSantis Bullies Kids Into Doing Whatever They Want.”

 And an article in the Babylon Bee on March 7th bore the headline
Biden Sells Alaska Back To Russia So We Can Start Drilling For Oil There Again.”
The strangest thing about it is that USA Today went through the motions of fact-checking it.
The newspaper found that the article was indeed satire, yet still felt the need to add:
“There is no evidence Biden plans to sell Alaska.”
Sometimes reality writes the parodies for you.
