Separated at Birth?

Herman Van Rompuy, the President of the European Council, said EU leaders had agreed to ¿re-evaluate¿ its agenda after voters ¿sent a strong message¿ at the weekend



Lessons have been learned Da yadda Da yadda Da yadda… Oh no they fuckin haven’t!


  1. John Galt says:

    You missed some…


  2. Julie near Chicago says:

    Sure looks like it, RAB. Except the meerkat looks more suave, more urbane.

    . . .

    This spell-checker (NOT!) thinks there’s no such word as “meerkat.” It needs to watch more Animal Planet.

    . . .

    By the way, who’s the meerkat’s double? Should I know him?

  3. RAB says:

    Nobody knows him, he is the unelected President of Europe. Name of Herman Van Rompuy, or Rumpy Pumpy as he is commonly known over here, and the least likely candidate to get any, that has ever lived.

  4. Julie near Chicago says:

    Oh dear, RAB, the poor man. More to be pitied than censured surely (H. v-P.) ? Given the likely nature of the innocent jests the name is sure to provoke in the schoolyard, the Nursing Home, and every place in between.

    Of course one can’t help wondering if he does, can one. :>))

  5. RAB says:

    Well Julie, I’ll leave it to our British man of the moment to let rip on Rumpy Pumpy. It explains the first of John Galt’s pics by the way…

  6. John Galt says:

    It explains the first of John Galt’s pics by the way…

    Both of them actually…

    1. Charisma of a damp rag
    2. Appearance of a low-grade bank clerk

    = Lesser spotted President of the European Council (Latin: rumpeous pumpeous minimus)

  7. RAB says:

    Sorry John, missed the second one… looked like a sleezy Porn-broker making a proposition to me… Oh Wait! :-)

  8. Julie near Chicago says:

    Well, RAB, I must say that from the video, President Rumpy-Pumpy looks quite a good sport. Amused at the proceedings and so forth.

    I thought the Russian choir at the end was a nice touch. –It WAS a Russian choir, yes?

    I have to believe that the portly duffer with the white hair never subjected himself to one of C-Span’s broadcasts of the PM taking questions in Parliament. Fractious bunch, you Brits. No sense of decorum whatsoever.

    Well done. ;>)) *applause*

  9. John Galt says:

    The rather terse looking German guy who gets up after Farage and complains about him insulting the dignity of parliament (as if) is Martin Schulz, one of the two candidates as Rumpy Pumpy’s replacement.

    Juncker and Schulz jockey for EU’s top job

    “When’s the election” you say? No, no, no – This is the EU. We don’t do elections as the wrong sort of person might get in (like Mr. Farage). No it will be decided in a dirty back-room deal over canapés and several nice bottles of Henri Jayer Richebourg Grand Cru from the EU parliaments wine cellar.

    Democracy? That’s just for the little people…
