Picture This Week

So, another week in the books.

YANNY, LAUREL, OR….

Muppet Outtakes!!!

Once upon a time, P.J O’Rourke gave a most cogent explanation of why America doesn’t get invaded. You might remember it. In any case, here is the visual aid.

Mom taught us to share, right?

Congratulations to  Kaitlyn Marie, a graduate of Kent State University, class of 2018. Now she can protect herself on campus.

As usual, mostly from PowerLine and Bookworm, and diverse other places. Enjoy!

ps.

And just a royal wedding quibble or two. A couple of my Anglican friends, @DrJulesGomes and Gavin Ashenden had reservations on the Bishop’s message at the royal wedding yesterday. I don’t disagree with them, and the bishop will likely never have a more bully pulpit, But I have my doubts that anybody was really paying all that much attention, it was after all a show wedding, and I don’t know about you, but at my wedding, I had a few other things on my mind beyond what the preacher was preaching at me.

It also struck me that if this was my daughter marrying into the British Royal Family, I’d want her to have the best and that Rolls Royce she went to church in, while a pretty decent car, and rare too, wasn’t considered the best when it was built. This was:

That is a 1936 Packard All Weather Cabriolet V12, which quite a few reviewers at the time thought was a better car than the Rolls Royce. This particular one would have been highly appropriate having both show business and British connections. How does that work, you ask? Well, its original owner was a chap by the name of Charlie Chaplin.

Ask the man who owns one.

    I didn’t hear or read the Bishops message. So there are some quibbles going on? I guess the usual complaints.
    Anyway, I saw what Sharpton had to say.
    Best comment there, I thought, was “I want to be like Al Sharpton”. 🙂 (@ Daily Mail)

      Their complaint (and I do agree) was that he talked about love, which is fine, but where was the rest, like repentance. Like I said, not sure anybody was listening all that well. 🙂

      I’d like to have Al’s money in this world, but wouldn’t want to be him the day he meets the Lord. So there’s that. 🙂

        Just a sign we’re all growing closer. This morning I noticed the branches of our Ligustrum japonicum and a nearby oak tree’s branches holding branches together. 🙂

          That’s repentance and absolution for previously slapping each other around in the hurricane winds. Probably more oak guilt though. 🙂

          It was just a little nut when the old tree it fell from had oak privilege. 🙂

    That Karl fellow was a derelict person for sure. I guess that’s why that Obama assistant idolized Mao instead. Hard to keep 🙂 ing, but oh well, 🙂

    Finally…for this day. That’s the best looking ginger tail gunner I’ve ever seen. I’d love to respond to the invitation to come and take it, but I know I’m not the little engine that could anymore. 🙂
