Fable: A New Yahoo


By Herschel Sternlieb

Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver described the Yahoos as coarse, crude, filthy creatures resembling homo sapiens who spent their time seeking shiny stones in the mud. And so it has been for the longest time until today a new generation of Yahoos has evolved. This recent member of the species spends his time seeking imaginary atomic bombs in other peoples’ soil while he fondles his own bombs in anonymous and secret places. 

Unlike his predecessors, this new Yahoo is immaculate in his person and attire, though his hands are full of blood. He is always cleanly shaven, well coiffed and seeks out others to do his dirty work for him.  So far he has hooked only one major helper, Uncle Sam whose hands are as tainted as his.

He is called a NetanYahoo.
