Happy Easter

Easter cartoon via The Art Life.   There’s no formatting to get buggered.

And a rather more serious (not to say disgraceful and depressing) story from David Tiley.   Anyone care to revisit their opinion about Tony Blair and his leadership qualities?

Beware of white chocolate eggs! Sometimes they are innocently secreted in bags of proper eggs.

But soy eggs are worse. One year I rushed out late and purchased soy eggs by mistake. Our youngest child who is now 6 feet 4 inches tall still remembers that as the worst thing ever.

Jason, communists, like children, should be beaten regularly. Even if they have not actually done anything wrong, you know they have probably been thinking about it.

Actually I was thinking of Iraq as long distance fallout from WW1, without reference to communists. Just a thought.

Speak gruffly to your little boy,
And beat him when he sneezes.
