Mad Hatter's Tea Party

The Praise of Folly: Nothing is more foolish than a man professing his madness. The Merriam-Webster Dictionary has described the term madness as both “a state of severe mental illness and behavior or thinking that is very foolish or dangerous.”

I’m madly in love with my new golden tea set. I’m crazy in love with the Easter Bunny disguised as my wife. She brought me chocolate cookies on Easter Sunday. I got madly angry on Easter Monday when I finished eating the last chocolate cookies.

Opening Day winners and losers are everywhere in Major League Baseball. My busted bracket is gone and I’m going to “Let It Go” like the Frozen song. It’s all about spring, budding buds, Bud Light, The Milwaukee Brewers and Major League winners.

The Tibetan Fastball is a pitch first documented by novelist James Hilton after Lost Horizon was published in 1933. The Chicago Cubs flight to New York was diverted and their plane crashed in the Himalayas in Tibet. Surviving Cubs formed an underground Tibetan League Baseball. During a game between the Chicago Cubs and Qiang Cougars in 1937, Bud Tinning was wearing his No. 22 jersey when he threw a devastatingly tragic fastball and struck out Stan Lee in the third inning. James Hilton was watching the game in Shangri-La Stadium when he called the pitch a Tibetan Fastball and applied the method and style of literary fiction to fact-based journalism. James was also credited for evolving bad language after watching several "mishit" pitches and screaming "mishit" at Cougars. (Though I’m not sure if he pronounced it as mishit or mi-shit).

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to eat the head from my white chocolate bunny.
