Someone was proud of that lawn decoration, and so was his missus. God bless them, and God bless the Polaroid camera for preserving it for all to enjoy decades later.

HOLY CARP!

80 inches of gong [via].

“FFS! They got me, too!”

What this mother is doing is pure evil.

This still amuses me because it’s perfect.

Scott Adams, creator of “Dilbert,” speaks truth to powder.

Building The Wall (with some really annoying music IMO).

Men are allowed to compete with women in sports events, and some women are pissed. TRUE.

Mull of Kintyre was a No. 1 hit in the U.K. in 1977, and you’ve probably never heard of it [via].


A Humble Request. We’re still not sure where this is going.

“It’s a bunch of privileged sanctimonious poshtwats lecturing working class people on why their living standards should be reduced even further.” Paul Joseph Watson is spot on. Watch the entire clip.

Seven British *ahem* tourists were apprehended and detained by ICE at the U.S. Border. Horrible, ya? Check out the rest of the story.


Dear Lady Twist” made it to No. 9 in 1962, and was perhaps the first ska song to hit the U.S. charts, unless you count “My Boy Lollipop.”

“My Boy Lollipop” 1956, 1964 & 1984. Song history here:

The original song, “My Girl Lollypop”, was written by Robert Spencer of the doo-wop group The Cadillacs. Notorious record company executive Morris Levy agreed to purchase the song from Spencer. Although not involved in writing the song, Levy and alleged gangster Johnny Roberts listed themselves as the song’s authors. In an effort to avoid sharing any royalties with Spencer, Levy removed Spencer’s name from the original writing credits. Levy even claimed that Robert Spencer was his pseudonym.


A Humble Request. She’s improving, but probably won’t be able to live on her own without assistance 24/7. Thanks to all who contribute – every little bit helps.
