Yes, I Sometimes Try To Be Funny
However, in light of recent events, I have decided that someone should write a romance novel/Lifetime Movie based on this premise:
He was a tough city kid trying to make his immigrant steelworking dad proud.
She was a small town girl trying to prove she was more than just another runner up from a beauty pageant.
At first, the only thing they seemed to have in common was their enormous self-love and sense of victimhood, but they each came to realize that their outsized sense of entitlement could only be satisfied by the other.
In a world of rules and regulations meant to protect the citizenry from corruption, they would not be contained, spending other people's money in all fifty states.
Not Without My Aqua Net: A Tale of Two Governors
Once upon a time, there were two little kids who went to the governors office: One from Chicago, the other from Alaska. And they were each assigned very hazardous duties (show them having to sign legislation, kiss babies), but I took them away from all that, and now they work for me, my name is Rupert.

Whoever Writes Headlines For The Christian Science Monitor Deserves A Raise
Japanese macaques will completely flip out in when presented with a flying squirrels, a new study in monkey-antagonism has found. The research could pave the way for advanced methods of enraging monkeys.
Biologists and psychologists have long studied macaques' complex social interactions for insights into human evolution and behavior.
However, much remains unknown about how macaques get along (or not) with other creatures. Better documentation of such encounters could reveal more about macaque societies as well as that of our shared primate forbears.
"Human evolution occurred alongside primate evolution from a common mammalian ancestor," Onishi told LiveScience. "Therefore, it is important to learn the evolution of primates in understanding the previous steps in human evolution."
