I hadn’t realized he was such a rock star.
Asphalts go, I suppose there are worse.
We mustn’t tar his reputation. I suspect he is lava-ble and he might pull through these gravel-egations if he can rally his basalt around him.
Gneissly done Warren…
or mining his office for gold, perhaps.
That would cement his reputation.
Now, now, he is innocent until proved gilted.
It’s not clear they have anything concrete on him. I guess it’s not a question of either/ore.
A shorter John G: He’s stuck between a rock and a hard place.
What did Hizzoner do with “truckloads of free granite”?
Not sure if he really had any concrete plans.
He was trying to get stoned.
Wow, you really can’t help yourself, can you?
I’d try to play along, if I was boulder.
You can only marble at his stones, to run as an anti-corruption crusader.
I wish I could care, but this stuff is so common, and I’m just too jaded.
Man, that’s subtle. Nice.
Yeah, that’s a real gem.
Shouldn’t this story be in Slate?
^^ my personal favorite
Those are some heavy charges he’s facing.
Oh schist …
Be gneiss, now. We have to wait for the convection. Our justice system does derive from the Magma Carta after all.
I think I can forgive that bad pun, in light of the awesomeness that was RBC’s list of jokes riffing on New Jersey.
You all made my day, I haven’t laughed this hard in days. My taste in humor is sadly plebeian. Rock on!
