Extract from Story:
HURRICANE BEACH, Florida – In what local residents are calling a very unpopular decision in this day of the Coronavirus, the Florida Beach Authority has decided to reopen Hurricane Beach. When life-time resident, Trixie Belle Stufflebaum, 91, heard the news the church-going evangelical blurted out, “What the eff!” Trixie Belle, who lives a mere 100 yards from the beach, said that, a few week.....

I'm struggling again.

Anything funny or worthwhile here?

Is the line where she says "What the eff!" the funny part?

If not, I'm all out of ideas.

No. I think “boobs” must be the funny part.

It is hard to find much interesting. That, and, in all fairness, you know, without much exception, not just sometimes, but many times, abuses, you know, the comma.

Some of the sentences are just cumbersome at best and challenging at worst to read.

The commas may be my fault, Cockwomble. I put most of them in there.

Not everybody agrees with my view of commas, but I only use them when not using them might lead to confusion.

Rather than anything else, I was looking for indicators as to what one might possibly find to laugh at in the story.

There is savage satire to be had out of the "lockdown or reopen" stuff in the USA. This promises that but then doesn't deliver really.

Technical facility but lifeless? Quite cozy really. Nothing wrojg* with that. Very gentle comedy, just purring along.

Trump said "almost a cleaning" when referring to disinfectant inside the body. Maybe this is "almost funny"?

What's an Irish clogging song?

PS why do you call him Cockwomble? I'm baffled. I guess this hipster world of satire is more than an innocent like myslef can understand.

*wrojg is an experiment with "pigeon Finnish" - I'm not sure it works in this context, but, as Larry Grayson used to say, "Heigh-Ho!"

Look at the muck in here. You can kiss my astrakhan coat.

. . . and in spite of the name change, I still think I am one hell of a cockwomble.

Yes, thank you, I knew that. My question was mere rhetoric.

He should have retained the rights to Cockwomble. Anything with “cock” has a nice ring to it.

Rex the Wonder Dog was the subject of one of my recent stories. I consider the use of “Rex” without my express approval, a violation of Trademark law, and I have contacted my attorney.

Will see you in court.
