Separated At Birth – Biden/Banzai

 

Banzai Hyena: Banzai of Lion King fame isn’t quite as bright as his de-facto leader, Shenzi. He is quick with stupid jokes and really easy to be offended — or more like: really glad when he can be violent in response to any stupid jokes from anyone who isn’t a hyena. He does not compete with Shenzi or Ed because they’re friends. When he isn’t laughing about his own jokes or Ed’s clumsy behavior then he is still hungry! As always. Hyenas play one kind of bad role in the life of Lions. On the Lion King Muck, most hyenas are evil. But there are nice hyenas and hyena cubs too! Well, not these three, that’s for sure.

Hypocrisy (hi-pok-ruh-see)

Hypocrisy is defined as:

  1. The practice of professing standards, beliefs, etc., contrary to one’s real character or actual behaviour.
  2. A feigning to be what one is not or to believe what one does not.
  3. An expression of agreement that is not supported by real conviction.

Synonyms:  deceit, insincerity

What does Edmond Burke think:

“Hypocrisy can afford to be magnificent in its promises; for never intending to go beyond promises; it costs nothing.”

How about Billy Connolly’s thoughts:

“Hypocrisy is the vaseline of political intercourse.”

Can you give some examples?
