On irony, imagery, and humor

This country has come to feel the same when Congress is in session as when the baby gets hold of a hammer.

— Will Rogers, US humorist & showman (1879 – 1935)

There's a reason a gavel resembles a hammer.

  1. Love Will Rogers! Thanks for the reminder.
    Happy New Year.

    • Decided to post this image while in between projects, watching C-SPAN and the swearing in ceremony of the 113th Congress, and thinking about how when you’re armed only with a hammer more and more problems tend to take on the characteristics of a nail. Happy to hear from you and do keep in touch!
