Look up the definition of "Trumpery."

attractive articles of little value or use.
practices or beliefs that are superficially or visually appealing but have little real value or worth.
showy but worthless.

Or Trump, to deceive or to win through deceit (as in "trompe l'oleil," to fool the eye) ... Originally (and in the French), trump implied a deceptive form of victory involving cheating, but that sense has been largely lost, though it's still around in the term trumped up, meaning something that's been falsely made up.

To Trump is also UK slang for passing gas.

My Little Trumpy
The only thing you do is cruelty
My Little Trumpy
You're everything that's wrong with the GOP

You were born a millionaire
If it's not about you, you just don't care
Sharing kindness? Not a chance in hell
You're hoping they're too dumb to smell
Your bull
My Little Trumpy
Do you know you don't have any real friends?

Nicholas Walstrom writes:
The ideal revival of Tiny Toon Adventures would have them as adults unable to get jobs despite their degrees from Acme Looniversity. They blame the original Looney Tunes for not preparing them for the real cartoon world but the Looney Tunes just think the Tiny Toons are entitled.

my response:

We're tiny, we're toony
We're all a little loony
We starred in cartoonies
Back in 1993

Our hopes and intentions
Were lost in the recession
So now we've got depression
And we're stuck in poverty

At Acme Looniversity
We earned our toon degrees
100 grand in student debt
and now we're on the street

Our resumes rejected
Because we're not connected
We can't afford the rent and
there's nothing to eat

They're furries, they're funny
They don't have any money
Babs Bunny has a Youtube channel
Buster has a blog

And Hamton's a girl now
So please respect her pronouns
And Furrball's dead, we've gone ahead
and replaced him with a dog

So here's Acme Acres
Only some of it's on fire
But climate change will drown it all
By 2055

We're tiny, we're toony
We're all a little loony!
It's Tiny Toon Adventures
And it's not our fault!

We're just Millennials!

Here comes Santa Claus
Here comes Santa Claus
And also somehow Jesus Christ

A traditional holiday celebration
That's also become a fight
Between the Church and the mighty dollar
It's a split personality, right
So let's give thanks to Santa Claus
Cos Jesus Christ comes tonight

Here comes religion
Here comes religion
But here comes candy and toys
Bringing gifts of bills and guilt
To all the girls and boys
Santa knows that it's confusing
But just bear with us, all right?
If your family hates you you'll get no gifts
But Christmas still comes tonight

Here comes Amazon
Here comes Wal-Mart
Telling you to buy buy buy
Capitalism was built on slavery
And making the natives die
Santa was designed by Coca Cola
Religion's racist and white
But forget all that, let's celebrate
And have a Happy New Year tonight

I got my backup portable hard drives out of storage, and there are thousands of interesting restoration projects I did and rare videos. There's so much rare and restored Muppet stuff, as well as Bonzo Dog Band and Monty Python related stuff, Richard Williams of course and plenty else. It's a shame that Youtube would definitely take the channel down if I posted all this rare stuff again, and I don't think there's a video site anywhere that wouldn't ding me for copyright.

I did most of this stuff in DVD format. There was a time when Mega was good for posting this sort of thing, and that time has already passed. I haven't handled physical media in years.

Someone who isn't fond of downloading asked me to provide some Thief and the Cobbler and Muppet material on a USB drive. I easily filled up 128GB with material, and could have done twice that.

Shame that this isn't all just floating out there for easy viewing, although a lot of it is, somewhere.

Now that we're all reliant on Google search, they've changed the algorithms so it gets more and more useless every day. I can never find the high quality images I search for anymore, unless I already know which websites they're at and find them manually. Google is no help, only delivering low quality stuff on purpose. I also just namesearched myself and got less than a hundred results, after 20 years on the internet. They've decided that only a few sites count .....
