Pop Culture Frenzy, Round 48

Welcome once again to Pop Culture Frenzy.  Today's question takes us to last night's GOP convention where Melania Trump made a speech.

She has been accused of plagiarizing a section of Michelle Obama's 2008 DNC speech.  Just what was said?

It's a disgrace.  She should apologize at once!
Hostmaster:  for saying what, exactly?

She said about the value of hard work
 and my word is my bond.
Just like Michelle.  Word for word.
I demand an apology from
everyone who uses clunky platitudes
like, "my word is my bond".

What's the big deal?
The value of hard work,
keeping  your word?  Aren't these
things we can actually agree on?
Do we really need to nitpick the wording?
Melania used Michelle's speech.
She stole it.  It's plagiarization!
Republicans are cheaters!
Can you plagiarize a platitude?
Good question.
  I'm not sure about platitudes
 but I'm pretty sure cliches' and
old chestnuts are in the
public domain.
She should admit she used
Michelle's words.
I don't know.
All First Lady speeches sound
the same to me. 

First Ladies should be
seen and not heard -and
rarely seen at all.

So ends another round.

   For those interested, you can see and hear the controversial speech snippets here.

Round 48
Fluffy/Molly 21

  1. I think they both need to thank ME.
    I have been saying those same words before they were born !

    cheers, parsnip

  2. She should just place a bet on how long it'll be before The Donald dumps her for a fifteen years younger version like he has before.

  3. I'll bet she's had some second thoughts about him in the past week!
