Comprobatio

Comprobatio (com-pro-ba’-ti-o): Approving and commending a virtue, especially in the hearers.

You sat there. You stayed awake. You asked easy questions. You stood and applauded and waved signs and booed when the time was right.

You made me look good! The rehearsal paid off. Believe me!

So, thank-you all for your loyalty and commitment to making America Great Again, and to hell with Puerto Rico, Rocket Man, and Polar Bears.

You persisted. You wouldn’t back down. You took personal risks. You gave us all a shining example of courage, non-violence, and wisdom in action–a rare combination of virtues; a rarity that we can’t forget.

The pipeline was put on hold and we hold you responsible for enabling a judge, in good conscience, to see it our way and grant the stay.

Now, we are faced with the stay’s unravelling. Now we are faced with beginning again. I trust you will continue to display the same virtues in action so that we may influence a judge, build sympathy for our cause, and permanently block the pipeline’s construction.

Thank-you.

Today is a day of cheer and hope for all of you children who’re graduating! It is time for you to be rewarded so your self esteem may blossom, bloom and go to seed, and of course, so our audience members can be here!

On behalf of  The Butterflies & Bluebirds Foreschool for Acceptable Toddlers, I say, “There are no winners or losers at B.B.FAT,  just doers!”

Accordingly, with a big happy face and a knowing wink, I take great pride in awarding all of you clearly acceptable toddlers with a framed parchment B.B.FAT certificate for being Doo Doo Doers and not gloaty winners or whiny losers.  Yes, every single one of you with no exceptions whatsoever will receive this Certificate of  Having Done Lots of Things.

Stay seated! We will hand out your certificates shortly! Stay seated please! Please remain seated!

Now, after you’ve gotten your certificate and had your picture taken with your parent, parents, and/or the person driving you home, go and DO something! Maybe toddle around your living room or make a dumpy? Why? Because you’re a Doo-Doo-Doer!

Doo-Doo, Doo-Doo, Doo-Doo. You’re all Doo-Doo-Doers. And that’s very acceptable!

For the past 35 years you have acted within, and not over, the call of duty. We are neither glad nor sad to see you go. However, it is expected by somebody more important than me that I present you with this dishwasher safe coffee mug inscribed with our corporate motto: “Good Enough is Good Enough.” Thank you for being compliant, courteous, and not a problem. Don’t miss your bus!

We took them to the brink, they looked over the edge, they backed up a few steps, and they agreed to nearly every budget cut we proposed!

Well done my fellow fiscal conservatives!

Saving money is a good thing, and you helped us save you a bundle!

But, let me make this perfectly clear: We’re not done yet! Next, we take out Obama-care, then, we dismantle Medicare, and after that, we eliminate Social Security!

Now, my fellow Americans, I’m going back to my tanning bed, relax, smoke a cigarette, and quietly gloat.

Thank you for your support and encouragement. Victory is ours!

Generosity is aligned with all that is good. It alleviates suffering. It restores hope. It engenders trust. It is manifest in so many ways, but always, with no expectation of reward.

Tonight we are gathered to celebrate, not reward, your generosity. We are here to witness the benefits your loving kindness has brought to so many people, and moreover, to publicly observe, to better know, and to gratefully acknowledge generosity’s virtue.

The operation was a complete success! As a team, as expected (as ever) you displayed courage, resourcefulness, and camaraderie–three key virtues that have enabled us to successfully complete our missions without losing anybody; no matter how weird it gets out there and no matter how many unexpected events we encounter along the way!
