I’m not sure that this is appropriate for “fun” on Friday. It’s more like sad on Friday. Or ironic on Friday. But I don’t have anything more fun, so I’m going to run with this.
As you may know, yesterday was Constitution Day. And you know what? The federal government can’t even get that right.
I’ve written sever Fun on Friday articles about gold scams. Usually, the victims are elderly folks and you can kind of understand how they might get fooled by scammers. But you know who I wouldn’t expect to get conned in a gold scam?
And yet, here we are.
Yesterday was Ron Paul’s 85th birthday and I thought it would be apropos to use this Fun on Friday space to pay him a little tribute.
As regular readers of Fun on Friday know, I’m not a big fan of masks. They are uncomfortable. They are inconvenient. And they are incredibly ugly.
But my opinion notwithstanding, it doesn’t look like masking is going away anytime soon, so we have to find ways to cope with it. A couple of weeks ago, I explained how I was having a little fun with the mask requirements here in Nassau County, Florida.

We all want gold, right? We like gold things.

But there have been some pretty atrocious things made with gold. Here are my top-five awful uses for gold.
Twenty-twenty has been a miserable year for sports fans. Coronavirus shut down sports back in March, leaving sports junkies to chose between blankly staring replays of 5-year-old football games or actually picking up a book.
But we’re starting to see signs of normalcy.
I have to confess, I’m not really feeling particularly fun this Friday. This past week was tax week.
And taxes aren’t fun.
