Onomatopoeia

Onomatopoeia (on-o-mat-o-pee’-a): Using or inventing a word whose sound imitates that which it names (the union of phonetics and semantics).


When Trump walked quickly, his XXL adult diaper made a sloshing sound signaling Melania it was time for a change. Given that they were in Florida, she called Gov. DeSantis. “You promised,” Melania said in a threatening tone of voice. “No is not an option for you little man. He stinks and Junior is nowhere to be found. Do you want to stay Governor? Do you want to see sunrise tomorrow?”

DeSantis came in by chopper 15 minutes later—you could hear it’s budda budda budda as it circled Mar-a-Lago. He hopped out wearing rubber gloves and a gas mask and carrying a big plastic bag filled with XXL butt wipes. “Let’s do this” he said as he snapped his rubber gloves around his wrists.

As he walked in, he saw a sleeping Trump laying in his diaper on a large custom-built changing table decorated with gold angels and rhinestones.

“He’s sedated,” Melania informed DeSantis. “Thank God for that!” DeSantis exclaimed as a reached for the diaper’s Velcro tab. It made a scrooching sound as he pulled it open. Then, DeSantis tightened his gas mask and went in. He pulled out one of the baby-blanket size butt wipes when suddenly Trump woke up, and leaving his soiled diaper behind, jumped off the table, and walked quickly toward the swimming pool. His white terrycloth spa slippers softly flip-flopping on the tile floor.

“Don’t worry, sometime he want to clean himself. He uses pool,” Melania told DeSantis.

His stomach went ooga-goosh when he swallowed the wriggling baby octopus. It was terrible how it hugged his tongue before it slid into oblivion, moving around for a few minutes in his stomach and then going quiet.

He was a staunch Christian and felt he had committed some kind of sin related to eating living creatures. But then he realized live baby octopus  was on the menu. “It can’t all bad if it’s on the menu.” It was the same thought he had had the night before in the lobby of the brothel as he was reading the menu of recreational activities offered, and their prices. He went for “Down on Your Knees” since it required a posture, and afforded a degree of pleasure, not unlike that of praying.

“Life is good,” he thought, as he tossed another little wriggling octopus into his mouth. “Mmmm.”

My heart went boom, boom, boom. Then it went squish, squish, squish as they gave me CPR. My marathon-running days are over forever! I’ll have to be content with fast walking around the mall or the supermarket.

YOU: Yes sir, that’s my baby. No sir, I don’t mean maybe. Hubba Hubba Hub cap. That’s my gal. Boo poopie doo.

ME: Dave! Your hubcap collecting has gotten out of control. Nobody wants to see you dancing naked on the front porch with a hubcap duct-taped to your crotch.

Put down the beer. Get inside! Put on some clothes! Call it a day!

YOU: Yes sir, that’s my wife. No sir, I do mean strife. Yes sir, she’s a major zip in my ass right now!

Hey wife! Hubcaps have one function: to cover lug nuts.

So, what’s my hubcap doing?

Ha! Ha!

ME: Dave, there’s a crowd gathering on our front lawn. I think I hear the woo wah woo wah of police cars headed up the street.

Get the hell inside!!!
