Useful Tips from Senator Joni Ernst

Freshman Senator Joni Ernst’s rebuttal to Obama’s State of the Union address provided me with some much-needed comic relief after the turbulent news of the past few weeks. Of course, it’s only funny until she starts doing the things she talked about.

While Googling images of a Hardee’s biscuit line, I realized that the restaurant chain has trademarked the phrase “made from scratch” with regard to said biscuits. They are Made from Scratch™. Now, I’m sure they are fine biscuits, but generally speaking, most things made from scratch don’t involve a federally-registered trademark saying so.

Hope you enjoyed the Hand-Drawn™ cartoon.

    Four years at Iowa State living on campus costs nearly $60,000. At Hardee’s you’re going to make about $8 per hour. She must have spent a helluva long time on that biscuit line…

    I do appreciate her sharing the revolutionary idea of working a part time job to earn money for education. It’s singularly brilliant!

    That’s why i prefer Rose Nylunds back at St. Olaf stories. I’m secure from actually having to live by them. Otherwise little difference.
