I enjoyed JP’s 12 Rules. Several in there that I wouldn’t have thought of myself.
Yes, I enjoyed that one too, and that was where I first learned about him. 

I used to never listen to podcasts, but now follow two: his and one other.
He has so many, so I don't listen to all of them -- just the ones with an appealing topic.

I had to browse Wikipedia to learn about Kathy Griffin:

On November 4, 2020 (her 60th birthday and the day after the 2020 United States presidential election), Griffin once again posted a photo of her posing with a model of Donald Trump's bloody, decapitated head.

Will anyone tell me what decapitated head is?

All right, fine, maybe she’s OK.

Who cares about poor Kathy Griffin? The decapitated head is something!

Thank you for Babylon Bee, it's really funny. I wouldn't know about it without that ban.

Soccer is awful at the best of times, but having to watch it sober must be like torture.

And 2.5% Bud (aargh) => frequent visits to the WC.
They sought it with thimbles, they sought it with care; They pursued it with forks and hope; They threatened its life with a railway-share; They charmed it with smiles and soap.

I suspect that there are mental health issues here.

Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they aren't after you.
Just because you're sick doesn't mean you're not a sicko.

There might even be a positive correlation!
