“Farting Against Thunder.”

Thursday, 22 March 2018 by

In 1783, a political cartoonist could illustrate farting, but was forbidden to say the word. The cartoon above is in reference to The Great Siege of Gibraltar (1779-1783), an attempt by the French and the Spanish to capture Gibraltar from the British who were distracted by the American War for Independence.

This is a Moray.

That’s a Moray.

This is That’s a Moray also.

“I identify as a computer, if that’s okay beepbeep.”

Compare this portrait with this one. Spooky resemblance.

Even toddlers know they have a job to do.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day Saturday Matinee- PSA, Yola Singer, Dervish & The Pogues

St. Patrick’s Day

Try not to puke in front of children.


Map and Yola song found here. Northern Ireland hadn’t been invented yet.

Dervish is awesome.

What’s St. Patrick’s Day without a tribute to the Pogues? Contrary to popular belief, frontman  Shane MacGowan is not dead.

I jumped the 3rd vid to one of my favorites, Young Ned Of The Hill  [full concert starts here]. It’s a traditional Irish song about one Éamonn an Chnoic. Legend says he became an outlaw after shooting a tax collector dead during a quarrel over the confiscation of a poor woman’s cow.

Have a great weekend, folks. See you back here soon.

“Hey Hey! Ho Ho! Whatisface has got to go!”
Vote for the potty of your choice. It’s your civic doody.
Do it for your country. Do it for your family. Do it for the children.
God forbid there’s a run-off.

So many puns, so little time. Who wants to go first?

And then there’s this.
