And, we would like to debut a limerick like poem called the Clintstones with a parody of the America famous cartoon called the Flintstones.



Written by Mel Brake


Clintstones. Meet the Clintstones.

They are the modern controlled-age political family.

From the town of Hopeless

They are hash tag from disaster can’t you see.


Someday, Hillary thinks she’s going to win

Just like Bill- a three repeat why not again.


When you’re with the Clinstones

Better say goodbye to your brain and wit

Cause the Clinstones my put you on the hit.


You will have a bad time

A really bad time.

And not a good time

Kiss your gay old ass goodbye

Kiss your gay old ass goodbye.
