I've come to realize that things, events, life itself, do not get worse as time goes by. They get heavier. There was a time, when candidate Barack Obama generated web sites like the one above — remember it? It was called Barack Obama Is Your New Bicycle.
Nowadays, it would probably be called The President is Busier Than You Thought Possible. There's a movie called Les Girls, in which the three main characters, who are in a sort of business dispute/two guys fighting over the girl, are seated in a cafe. The waiter comes to take their orders. What would they like?
Man # 1: "Tea?"
Man # 2: "Champagne!"
The woman: "An aspirin."
