Ye gods, there’s a lot going on in the world, such as:
Strike? A strike? Labor action by a bunch of pampered, overpaid athletes?

But my bloomers wouldn’t be the only ones in a bunch. Thong Boy, for example, would probably have his string turn into a cowlick, so high would his dudgeon be. Why? Because if the Spanish government has its way, the tax rate for furriners would rise to to 43 percent, from 24 percent.
