What an upside down world

Our new Speaker of the House is an enigma to me.

As an English teacher I'm stumped as how to pronounce his name. Does he know Hyacinth Bucket, who insists her last name is pronounced "Bouquet" in the BBC sitcom Keeping Up Appearances.

He cries about schoolchildren on a playground.

He cries a lot apparently.

Hmm, crying is good, but when women in politics almost do it, look out.

Now when a stocky manly man cries and is the Speaker of the House, has someone pulled a boner?

Gail Collins has provided some clarity.
