Cartoon of the Week.


Pretty straightforward right? Everyone here can see what the joke is, er… Hamas can’t. Well we know they hate cartoons, but who knew they had no sense of humour? Smile

Democracy and Racism Explained


An illegal immigrant kid asks his mother, “Mama, what’s Democracy and what’s Racism?”

“Well, son, Democracy is when the UK tax payers work every day so that we can get all of the benefits that we do, you know like free housing, free health care, more welfare payments than UK pensioners, and on and on, you know …. lots of things like that, that’s what they call Democracy”.

“But mama, don’t the UK tax payers get pissed off about that?”

“Sure they do, but that’s called Racism!”

And for fuck’s sake fellow Kitty Counters, put up some bloody posts!

Everybody duck!

This just in from Eric Worrall at WUWT:

Gigantic asteroid near miss coming this Thursday

You can go read the story (short, for WUWT) and peruse the comments, of course, but I did think that it would be unconscionably remiss of me not to show you all this important magazine cover presented by commenter Bubba Cow:

Unexpected Consequences

Conundrum of the Day

Over at the LA (var. S.G.), there’s an ad for a book called Going Galactic, with an attractive, politically-correct cover featuring two persons in white hoods: One, a Person of Color and a Female, and the other a standard-issue white guy with a beard, somewhat reminiscent of Mr. Connery perhaps 15 or 20 years ago.

When I saw the thing, this flashed cometwise through what I sometimes call my mind, to wit:


Now I do trust you blighters in Jollye Olde &c., as well as those who dwell in the exotic regions of the Southron Hemisphere, know that the acronym (and for a wonder, this time it really is an acronym) stands for “White Anglo-Saxon Protestant (Male).” (The “Male” part goes without saying. I mean, how would you pronounce ‘WASPM’?) It is, of course, a term of contempt, but that is not the issue.

Here is my problem. Why WASP? Why not simply ASP? I mean, they are not pleasant creatures either. I forget whether they bite or sting or both, but it doesn’t matter. The point is, I have somehow always taken it for granted that both the Angles and the Saxons were white, for some value of “white,” wherefore so would be their progeny, the Anglo-Saxons.

So where can I go to find a specimen of that apparently rare breed, the un-white Anglo-Saxon? A zoo in Sub-Saharan Africa? Someplace in the vicinity of Shanghai or Tokyo? Perhaps the Fort Peck Indian Reservation, or a spot in Tierra del Fuego? Tahiti? Mars?

Anyway, that’s what passes for thoughtful questioning chez Krauss ’round 1 a.m. Anybody? Anybody? Bueller?

There now follows a Party Political Broadcast on behalf of the Green Party…
