Uncle Jay is back from vacation!  He completely ignored all of the summer’s news, so this week he tries to guess what happened.  Did he do better than you?  The media?  Your goldfish?

    Poor Uncle Jay, what a shock to have surmised so completely incorrectly… Do you ever wonder if there is a correlation between you going on vacation and the rest of the world going to heck in a hand basket? Perhaps you should refrain from such self indulgent practices for the good of mankind….
    your favorite niece,

  2. Marc Says:

    At least you have your 401(k) and the AAA stability of the American economy to fall back on!

  3. Craig Says:

    Hooray! Your back! Where did all the time go? That’s what my kids are saying about going back to school! Turns out they are ready for school and we’re glad your back along with the “back to school specials”.

    Welcome back Unc!! After seeing your surmising was a “little” off, how much did it make you want to go back to the hole in the sand that you left???? TAKE ME WITH YOU!!!

  5. mskitty Says:

    OMG it’s about time you’re back! I was like wandering in the wasteland dazed and confused. Had to keep a stiff upper lip the whole time you were gone. I like to see you have your vacation time, but seriously you really need to take way shorter vacations in future.

    At last a chuckle, a smile!

    As Gomer Pyle would say “Surmise, Surmise!”
    Our Uncle’s back and in great form. And that’s no surprise. Just great news.

  7. Happy Griz Says:

    It’s great to have you back, Uncle Jay! Even though not much happened the past three or four months, we all have felt lost without you to explain the news each week. Maybe this week would be a good time for the Congress and the President to get back to work, and then you could explain all the wonderful things they will do for us taxpayers?

    Welcome Back Unca Jay!

    Why are you not sporting a sun tan after all of those hours on vacation? Did you spend the entire time in the library studying world affairs?


  9. Patt Says:

    In keeping with Uncle Jay’s spirit, I too ignored the news all summer. I’m sure by now the Dodgers have a new owner.

  10. RobtO Says:

    Sir Robert Mise

    Dear Uncle Jay,
    Have you ever wondered about the average age of your loyal fans? I have.
    I am 67 years old and I guess I probably mess up the average. Sorry! A.J.

  14. Joe Says:

    Uncle Jay…didn’t know you had been gone. Oh, well. Welcome back. Don’t fret, the world is still as screwed up as it was when you left. Thank goodness congress is in recess…now we can catch our breath and get ready for the all-too long campaign for prez season.

  15. plusaf Says:

    I agree… Brilliant!
    Welcome back to the Bread and Circuses that we’ve been provided by the Mass Media and our alleged “govennment” while you were away…
    You will NEVER lack for material…
    Excellent job!

  16. Scott S Says:

    Poor Uncle Jay & his 401K!!! :)

    Missed the news interpretations…

  17. Carole Says:

    How we have missed you! I don’t believe for a second that you did not read a paper or listen to the mouthpieces all summer long. Where’s your tan? Better yet where’s that 401K……

  18. Julia Says:

    Uncle Jay so glad you are back! But wish that you had surmised right – it seems things are better out there when one has one’s head and the other parts safely in the sand….
