News Roundup

1) Half of Germany sees Islam as a threat — the other half is Muslim.

2) POTUS tells Congressional Commies to fuck off back to Shitholia — ’bout time.  There’s apparently some confusion about this:  what he meant  was that AOC should first try running Brooklyn  in the way she wants to run the U.S.;  ditto that Black chick for Boston, the Arab from Detroit, and the Black chick from Somalia / Minneapolis [some overlap].  Apparently, however, most Republicans understood his message perfectly.

3) Chuckie thinks that slavery reparations are a good idea — of course he does, the slimy little Commie fuck.  Ever since Black Jesus left the White House, the Socialists have been scrambling to keep dem darkies on the plantation, and this seems to be the best they can do.  (They can’t promise Black people actual jobs, of course — Trump’s already reduced Black unemployment.)

4) Congress under threat of attack — the cops want to increase security because Trump’s rhetoric may inflame sentiment against the Commie Congressmen.  Where was all this concern when Bernie Bros and Pantifa threatened Republicans, e.g. Steve Scalise?

News Roundup

1)  Woman dies when she falls onto an eco-friendly metal drinking straw which impales her in the eye — you would have to have a heart of stone not to laugh at this story.  Or at this one:

2)  Bankers are fired and get all sobby —  that’s what happens when you don’t call in enough loans and fail to toss your quota of poor people out onto the street.

3)  Irish man, 19, ‘is raped by two men in Magaluf after being kicked out of a brothel for having no money’ — I have no idea what the problem is, here: he was looking  for some sex, wasn’t he?

4)  Gay group wearing ‘lesbians are women’ t-shirts are removed by police from the National Theatre bar after a transgender staff member was offended by their views — I’m trying to think how it’s possible to fit more annoying shit into a single headline, but I can’t — unless Michelle Obama was the trannie.

5)  Clinton confidante Epstein charged with arranging child prostitutes for friends —  will be murdered or “commit suicide” in 3… 2… 1…

6)  African leaders launched a continental free-trade zone on Sunday that if successful would unite 1.3 billion people, create a $3.4 trillion economic bloc and usher in a new era of development — it’s gonna fail.  Africa wins again.

7)  Older female rhinos are sent in to help young male get horny — redefines the meaning of “cougar”, dunnit?  (I’m trying to visualize “older female rhinos” and “sex”, but all I can think of is Nancy Pelosi and Maxine Waters.  Sorry.)

Olde Phartss

Here’s a fun game:  show your age in 5 words or so, as demonstrated here, e.g.:

  • I had a Blockbuster membership
  • AOL and Dial-up
  • VHS was still a thing

Please.  My KIDS remember those.

Here’s mine:  “Queuing to buy  Hard Day’s Night.”

Beat THAT, in Comments.  And no making up stuff, either.  “I remember Calvin Coolidge” won’t work.

Sports Update

Someone wrote and asked me why I haven’t celebrated Team USA winning the Women’s Football World Cup recently.  Okay, here it is:

There ya go.  (I think  I got those rainbow colors right…)

Update:  Okay, Alex Morgan isn’t a lesbian:

Fashion Stakes

From Deepest (and very much) Darkest Souf Effrica, Alert Reader Trevor W. reminds me that this past weekend saw the running of the Durban July Handicap, the country’s richest horse race (equivalent to Melbourne’s Gold Cup and America’s Kentucky Derby).  I asked him to send me pictures, thinking there’d be some Train Smash Women — and there were, just not of the kind one would imagine.

You see, “The July” is the day when fashion designers indulge their wildest fantasies Over There — and when you add the natural Seffrican penchant for vivid colors, you get stuff like this:

Dude looks like a lady, to coin a phrase…

Then you have the hats (or maybe it’s one of the PA speakers, I dunno):

What looks like yellow caterpillars on the guy, and an exploded pillow on the woman:

And there wasn’t even a breeze…

And did I mention that this was in Africa?  Just in case anyone missed the idea:

By Aintree standards, these are quite demure:

Then my favorite group pic, simply because of the Token White Chick on the left, who looks positively dowdy by comparison:

But the spirit of Aintree is alive and well, even in Durban:

No man should.

Now, as a kind of brain scrubber, let’s look at Wimbledon over the same weekend:

And my favorite of them all (guess why), the exquisite Eleanor Tomlinson (from the awful Poldark  TV series):

In fact, let’s look at a couple more of Miss Eleanor just for the hell of it:

As the great Roger Sterling said about redheads:  “It’s like a drop of strawberry jam in a saucer of milk.”
