    Seriously, this is the first thing I thought of… for all you classic raslin’ fans… http://www.wrestlingrambles.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/wwf-Genius.jpg


  3. - G'Kar - Tuesday, Jan 26, 16 @ 2:40 pm:

    Dang, OW beat me to it. That was my first reaction!


  4. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jan 26, 16 @ 2:40 pm:

    “I didn’t clout myself into your school, I just donated a building”


  5. - Concerned - Tuesday, Jan 26, 16 @ 2:40 pm:

    Stop the contest, we have a winner already: OW


  6. - Team Sleep - Tuesday, Jan 26, 16 @ 2:40 pm:

    That looks like the worst Photoshop job ever.


  7. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jan 26, 16 @ 2:41 pm:

  11. - 47th Ward - Tuesday, Jan 26, 16 @ 2:41 pm:

    Great minds…again Willy. Nicely done.


  12. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jan 26, 16 @ 2:42 pm:

    - G’ Kar -

    Great minds

    “Caption?”

    “Who wants to run for State Representative?”


  13. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jan 26, 16 @ 2:45 pm:

    I just found if first is all, I’m in great company I see. One of the funniest sing-a-long bits ever.

    “Caption?”

    “Work hard, play hard, don’t join a union… “


  14. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jan 26, 16 @ 2:45 pm:

    “One word, just one; Plastics… “


  15. - My New Handle - Tuesday, Jan 26, 16 @ 2:46 pm:

    This…is a mortarboard. And my head is full of cement.


  16. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jan 26, 16 @ 2:47 pm:

    “If I had just one college to close, just one… “


  17. - HangingOn - Tuesday, Jan 26, 16 @ 2:47 pm:

    With the thoughts I’d be thinkin’
    I could be another Lincoln
    If I only had a brain.

    Just because I’m presumin’ that I could be kind-a-human,
    If I only had heart.

    Why with my regal beezer I could be another Caesar
    If I only had the nerve


  18. - Gruntled University Employee - Tuesday, Jan 26, 16 @ 2:47 pm:

    Rule number one, nothing gets done until all Unions are gone!


  19. - Huh? - Tuesday, Jan 26, 16 @ 2:48 pm:

    Because Madigan…

    Let me be clear, I bought this State fair and square.

    Once you are wealthy as me, you can get away with bald face lies.


  20. - Springfield - Tuesday, Jan 26, 16 @ 2:49 pm:

    And the photo behind me is of our next Speaker of the House…Ken Dunkin - showing off how he got his name.

  24. - Earnest - Tuesday, Jan 26, 16 @ 2:50 pm:

    No caption. I can find no humor in either this situation or his dishonesty.


  25. - Fangirls - Tuesday, Jan 26, 16 @ 2:51 pm:

    Isn’t Rauner the elected leader of Illinois? Does anyone besides me think he lacks the required negotiate skills to find workable compromise? Blaming others for his personal failure seems rather childish.

    When is this clown going to turnaround Illinois? So far all he’s done in turn Illinois upside down!


  26. - Archiesmom - Tuesday, Jan 26, 16 @ 2:51 pm:

    I couldn’t do it. Everything I wanted to say violated at least one rule.


  27. - D.P.Gumby - Tuesday, Jan 26, 16 @ 2:51 pm:

    Quincy Adams Wagstaff, the new president of Huxley College (see Groucho in Horse Feathers)


  28. - lake county democrat - Tuesday, Jan 26, 16 @ 2:51 pm:

    I have no evidence to back me up but something happened during that meeting that will lead to a compromise. Something beyond science. Something perhaps… from above.

    (Mint?)

    Those can be very refreshing.

    Doctor: Those can be very refreshing.


  29. - My New Handle - Tuesday, Jan 26, 16 @ 2:53 pm:

    These are my degrees…of separation:
    The elderly from meals on wheels,
    The addicts from counseling,
    The social service employees from their jobs,
    The MAP recipients from their hopes of graduation,
    The union employees from the standard of living…..


  30. - XDNR - Tuesday, Jan 26, 16 @ 2:53 pm:

    Rule number one, lie like hell!


  31. - Man with a plan - Tuesday, Jan 26, 16 @ 2:54 pm:

    And that’s why I’m proud to announce Rauner University, open to all students whose colleges are about to shut down. Tuition is free, and you just have to give me and my partners 51% of your future earnin’s.


  32. - pool boy - Tuesday, Jan 26, 16 @ 2:56 pm:

    Just remember, one is the loneliest number.

    So remember, eat your veggies, brush twice a day, and live the Golden Rule…oh, wait…”


  38. - 47th Ward - Tuesday, Jan 26, 16 @ 2:59 pm:

    My budget cut funding for your school by 31% and provided flat funding for MAP. The Democrats, led by Mike Madigan and the politicians he controls, passed a budget that only cut your school by 8% and increased MAP by more than $20 million.

    You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure out which of us is better for higher education.


  39. - Christopher - Tuesday, Jan 26, 16 @ 2:59 pm:

    This is the ol’ professor, Kay Kyser… I mean, the ol’ Gov’nor Bruce Rauner, coming to you from the College of Political Knowledge. Chillun, that’s wrong, you’re right!

    ==When Miller visits the mansion, he’s gonna get 1 beer and I mean 1 !==

    And once he’s gone, I’ll put that stinkin’ Stag back in the fruit cellar and break out the pinot noir.


  55. - lake county democrat - Tuesday, Jan 26, 16 @ 3:18 pm:

    (Name Withheld - that’s the key to understanding Rauner, because that was true the day he took office)


  56. - Buzzie - Tuesday, Jan 26, 16 @ 3:19 pm:

    Governor Rauner as Jerry Lewis in the “Nutty Professor”.


  57. - Beaner - Tuesday, Jan 26, 16 @ 3:22 pm:

    Rauner explains “bustin’ out” to the Hillsdale graduating class.

    Rauner claims to abide by the number one rule: He who owns the Gold, makes the rules.

    Rauner gestures, explaining he is only interested in representing the interests of those who really count, the upper 1% of Winos.

    Rauner explains Illinois has only one problem…that Madigan!

    Dave Dahl beat me to it:

    Dean Martin: [Barbay has arrived at the groundbreaking of the new Melon School of Business] Ah, Phillip… so glad you could make it. Mr. Melon, this is Dr. Phillip Barbay. He’s the dean of our new Melon School of Business.

    Dr. Phillip Barbay: [Thornton extends his hand, Barbay refuses it and takes Martin aside] David, I just want to get it on record that I am totally against this. I don’t think that selling admission to an obviously unqualified student is either ethical or honorable.

    Dean Martin: Uh, right… Phil. In Mr. Melon’s defense, it was a really big check.
