SPARKS BRIEF: Santos Lies Are Out of This World


Washington, D.C. -  Congressman, George Santos, stunned reporters this morning at a press conference, held at the Motel 6 Washington, DC - Convention Center, when he admitted to lying to the country and his constituents in the 3rd District of New York. 


Santos entered the room wearing white pants and a white bed sheet, wrapped around his torso. It was held together with a brown belt and he carried a florescent light tube. “I’ve had to make up many stories to protect this country and the entire world.” He told a room packed with news correspondents.


“At last, I can reveal the truth. My real name is George Lucas Skytos. I’m a Jedish Knight sent here from another galaxy, far, far away. I’m here to save this planet,” Santos said. 


He explained that he was told to create a false identity by his father, the Supreme Leader of the Empire— Darth Donald. 


“I’ve posed incognito as a graduate of Baruch College and NYU, a star volleyball player, a Wall Street guru, a Jewish/Catholic gay man whose grandparents survived the Holocaust, a son who lost his mother due to the 9/11 attacks, a Brazilian drag queen, an actor on Hannah Montana, a Broadway producer, a journalist in Brazil and the target of an assassination attempt. This morning, I received an urgent message this morning from my sister Princess Leianka which has forced me to be honest


“At this very moment hundreds of rebel forces are headed toward earth to take control of the world. They will bring back Roe v. Wade, install more transgender bathrooms, recharge Jewish space lasers, and make healthcare universal,” he told the snickering group of media professionals. 


According, to the liar formerly known as Santos, the rebel forces are being led by Obi-Wan Pelosi. “She’s a ruthless, villain from the planet Democratron.”


Corky Collins from CNM told Santos, his explanation was just a twisted version of the film Star Wars. 


“There are no stars at war. The war will be waged here if we don’t allow the rise of the empire,” he replied. To prove the validity of his breaking news, Santos said his father Darth had traveled at a very warped speed from Mar-a-Lagobah to address the reporters.


In a cloud of mist, from a sputtering dry ice machine, Darth Donald entered the room looking strangely familiar in a black suit with a floor length cape and an orange MAGA helmet. The helmet covered his entire face. It featured sunglasses, and a mouth grill shaped like a dollar sign.


“My greatest son Lucas and my beautiful daughter/wife Leianka, came here to prepare the way for me. My other spawn, Junior and the dumb one are worthless,” Darth wheezed. “I alone can create an empire that I will rule with ultimate authority until I die, which probably will never happen because I have superior genes.” 


“Why should any world leader give you control of their country?” Fox Schnitzel, UNN correspondent asked Darth.


“I’ve already had an empire stolen from me in a very rigged coup. I’m destined to be the world ruler, because I have the biggest brain and I’m the smartest Darth in the galaxy. I’m so handsome underneath this helmet, if I took it off your heads would explode.”


Barbara Watusi from RIP stated, “All these claims are outlandish. Santos is a confirmed liar and under that orange helmet you are too.”


“If you don’t believe me or Lucas, you can confirm our story with the prophet and legal Jedish Master— Guilioda. He can be reached on his planet of Lunatoon.” 


All the correspondents rose to ask questions but were silenced by Santos. “The earth is in imminent danger. All your questions could be answered at another time. I must return to the House of Representatives to consult with Kevin the Hut and Marjorie Taylor Grievous concerning a plan of attack.”


Santos raised his florescent light tube toward the ceiling, “We will defeat the Far-Left Rebels led by Obi-Wan Pelosi and build an empire, or my name isn’t George Lucas Skytos”.

Waking Up in Vegas - Happy 2014!

Neither, Gary or I, are really gamblers, so we try to find other activities to occupy our time when visiting Vegas. We have visited Red Rock, Hoover Dam and Valley of Fire State Park on previous visits. We had even traveled as far as Zion National Park in Utah, during an earlier stay. There are definitely natural beauties to discover while in Nevada, and they have nothing to do with showgirls or stripper poles. This visit was about relaxation and ringing in the New Year, so we didn’t need to stray far from Vegas this time. We bought tickets for a concert featuring Kristin Chenoweth. She is a very talented singer and actress best known from Broadway shows, movies, and multiple guest appearances on GLEE. The concert was on New Year’s Eve at the newly built Smith Center. Although she is about three feet tall, Kristin has a powerhouse voice. She sang songs from her career and, of course, sang one of my favorites “For Good” from WICKED. It was a great way to

Mental Health - Destroy the Stigma

I believe that I am a fearless writer. I share my personal experiences, thoughts and beliefs. I’ve not been afraid to express my emotions. Self-expression is fundamental to writing. I am a man of my words Recently, I became concerned that my blogs about depression and mental health might shape my reader’s opinions of me in a negative way.   The more I thought about it, I realized that I had internalized the stigma that surrounds mental health. Stigma is defined as “a mark of disgrace or infamy.” The word bears a negative connotation and it devalues the person to whom the stigma is applied. While the conversation about mental health is receiving a larger forum, damaging misconceptions are widespread. According to surveys, there are between 42.5-46 million adults in the US that have some type of mental illness.   Statistics show that one in four adults experience mental illness in a given year. These numbers of individuals are all impacted in some manner by the sti

Summer Adventures Part 2 – The Backyard Backlot to Broadway

  My childhood summers weren’t all the glitz and glamor of vacationing with cousins, wobbly shopping carts and bloody feet. Actually, most of my summer days were spent right at home in my yard. My parents never took a vacation. Our family never packed its bags and took off for other ports of call.   I never boarded a plane, a boat, or a train for a family adventure. My adventures were self-created. They were products of an imaginative mind that could travel to the moon, ride the rapids in the Amazon Jungle and lead a battle for the Knights of the Round Table, all before a lunch of Spaghettios with a side of Hawaiian Punch . I have always loved going to the movies. This helped provide the inspiration to my over active mind. The Saturday afternoon matinee was a childhood staple for me. The smell of fresh popcorn as you entered the lobby and the crisp cold air of the air-conditioned theater helped set the atmosphere on those hot, summer afternoons. I would get lost in the dark with

Depression, Drugs & DNA

When diagnosed with Clinical Depression, my doctor recommended medication to help the illness. The art of medication management can challenge professionals who need to find the right drug and dosage that will be effective for treatment. It’s frustrating for patients combating the effects of depression when their medication doesn’t quite alleviate the symptoms. Part of this cocktail of drugs can also cause intolerable side effects ·       Sleepiness ·       Insomnia ·       Dizziness ·       Weight Gain ·       Headaches ·       Increased Anxiety ·       Sexual Problems ·       Nausea The feeling of hopelessness and frustration is just compounded when you’re waiting for relief that never really arrives. There are so many drugs available for the treatment of depression. It can be daunting to find the right one for you. I feel that I have taken the PDR of depression medications. There’s always been the chase for the one that would tu

Communication - The Art of Words

I read a posting, a few weeks ago, that the song “Enjoy the Silence” by Depeche Mode was celebrating its 25 th anniversary. The song, released in 1990, speaks of how you can be beyond words. It relays the message that there are times when words can’t describe feelings or emotions and seem inconsequential. I do understand when people say that something is “indescribable.” We all have moments when we just want silence and time to appreciate the world beyond words.   A feeling or an emotion can be hard to verbalize at times, but are we ever beyond words? We have to realize that if we want a space of non-communication we have to communicate that. We can’t “Enjoy the Silence” unless we can tell everyone we want silence.   For people to know we are at a loss for words, we have to tell them that. Everything we say and do lies in communication. We could not function as a community or a society without it. We don’t stop to contemplate that our whole world is created fro
