Folks, before you venture out into the worst blizzard ever make sure you top up that EBT card.

So this morning I took my wife's car to the dealer for some work. The service manager handed me a fob for a courtesy car. Well, when I got in the car I found there was no key on the fob and there wouldn't have been anywhere to put it anyway. After a few minutes of confusion I noticed a start button on the dashboard, pushed it and the car sprang to life.

So now as I was pulling out of the lot I can hear that I have Limbaugh on the radio and for the life of me I couldn't figure out how to change the station let alone turn it off. The damn thing was as confusing as that keyless starter.

Anyway, Pigman is doing some kind of parody of all the storm warnings and blizzard survival tips.

Of course one of the 1st ones was

2. I realize that this is a ridiculous question, but what the hell is he talking about?

Does he mean food stamps? Aren't those cards distributed at the beginning of each month, and you get the total amount at that time? You don't get to top them up.

Anyway, I know that giant ass never makes sense, but this time it's even more stupid.

6. In my state, the food stamp allotment is downloaded monthly to your EBT card....

....based on the last two digits of your case number starting with the 4th calendar day of each month:

That amount is all you get for the next thirty days unless a major power outage from a natural disaster wipes out your frozen foods. At that point, you'll get a special allotment.

Limbaugh is full of crap, as usual.

4. He doesn't make sense because he is just spewing his standard dog whistle bullshit.

Remember, his audience doesn't go in for all that logical stuff.
All they hear is "EBT card."
