Re: In other news... (humorous news items, etc)

Well, if we add in DBZ, I guess I've learned...

-son - (honorific)
caccarot - carrot
vegeta - vegetable
buruma - bloomers
gohan - small meal
frieza - freezer
raditz - radish
kame - turtle

And I think "go-" just means small anything, really.

Oh sorry about the edit conflict, included back to 2000. So last 30 years? Ok, Trump is far, far worse than Bush Sr, Dole, Bush Jr, McCain, and even Romney. So he's the worst Republican.
