Sunday Funnies; Free Like Flynn

Well, we have something other than Chines Bat Flu (although that’s still here) to talk about.

 

Why is my favorite convenience store hiding the Tobacco?

And, of course

Happy Birthday

Yesterday was Queen Margrethe of Denmark’s 80th Birthday. She sounds like an original, and very interesting, lady. From Frontpage Magazine.

Queen Margrethe of Denmark turns 80 today, and to commemorate the occasion she gave an interview that appeared in the newspaper Politiken on Saturday. The conversation was wide-ranging, but the part that made headlines throughout Scandinavia was her admission that while she considers climate change an important issue, she’s not personally panicked about it, and that while she’s aware that climate does change – “it has changed and is changing all the time” – she’s not certain whether humans directly influence those changes. Let it be emphasized here that this is one queen who actually knows something about these matters: she studied prehistoric archeology at Cambridge and hence has an extremely long-term perspective.

(This isn’t the first time, by the way, that Margrethe has failed to strike the approved tone on climate change: in more than one New Year’s address, for example, she’s celebrated the melting of Greenland ice because it opens up the possibility of exploiting the island’s rich natural resources.)

Sounds quite lovely to me. As much as I like Queen Elizabeth II and understand why she is as reticent as she is, I sometimes long for a spirited defense, and it looks like Queen Margrethe is quite willing to mount such.

So the Danes are lucky in their Queen, although their politicians aren’t much different than anywhere in Europe, or indeed ours. But they do have a queen who knows how to think and is not afraid to say what she means. And that’s a very good thing.

Happy Birthday, Ma’am.

Sunday Funnies, a Busy Week

A busy, and yet a pretty satisfying week.

And the high point of the week – The March for Life

Phrasing? One hopes so.

And of course… Audre will note that she is a brunette.

 

 

Sham-peachment, Agincourt Salutes, and Christmas is coming

Quite the week, wasn’t it?

I think we could safely say that the English gave a few ‘Agincourt Salutes’ in their election this week.

Maybe this explains Corbyn’s problem, it certainly agrees with what I read of h intelligence! 🙂

One hopes so!

Christmas is coming, don’t shoot your eye out!

And, of course

Hope you are having a good advent

Sunday Funnies, Calizuela

Steven Hayward over at PowerLine now calls it Calizuela which seems appropriate. Let’s get going.

We spoke of this the other day, here.

Trolling done right.

One keeps hoping.

The headline of the week, from the Babylon Bee

And, of course.

Sunday Funnies, Around the Madhouse

So, another week, democracy is comatose in Britain, Greta makes noise, and whistles blow, while Slow Joe gets more confused. Another week in the madhouse.

 

 

And of course
