You missed a [sic]. Why are passengers talking to used middle doors? And why the hyphen? Do they have editors?
Indeed, I missed it. :lmao:

As for your last question, apparently not – but it's an old typographer's saying that one never looks hard enough on the titles.

Thanks Liz. I'm buying soup, eggs, tinned fish, bread, milk and pasta for the old skint disabled guy up the road who cant get his pension and who's family can't be fucked to turn up and you're sat there in a setting of utter opulence, surrounded by velvet and ermine, diamonds and ground up bones of Indian children, smiling whilst servants bring you caviar.

You really are stupid. At times like this we do not need to be reminded that you have it easy. Your are not inspirational. In fact you're a cunt. An unused cunt because we've all seen those statues of Greeks.

Orwell thought the monarchy protected Brits from going Fascist by harmlessly soaking up all the excess love of pageantry.

Not his words, but that idea.

For a democratic socialist (possibly a contradiction in terms) he had no problem with privilege when it applied to himself. Like most/all socialists he was a hypocrite.

Inevitable. But a good deal less of one than his contemporaries.

Vaughan Gething has apologised after he was caught criticising fellow Labour AM Jenny Rathbone during a virtual plenary session. Gething could be heard swearing as he spoke about the Assembly Member for Cardiff Central after he left his microphone unmuted during the Zoom meeting on Wednesday afternoon.

Swan Training Sign-Up
So, you're the kind of person who visits the URLs in memes! It's not just me then!

As you might have guessed, I'm not the person who created the meme. But I do like swans, and if at least 100 people sign up, I might just be willing to hold a webinar on how to be a swan.

So how about that? You in?

UPDATE: we're now at 115 unique responses! So, barring unforeseen or otherwise unfavorable circumstances, the webinar is *on*! More info by email later.

Absurd.

William of Orange (or rather parliament) broke the bastard bloodline with the Glorious Revolution. :p

Even the Butt-Fumble Tolkien Emulator admits he based everything on the War of the Roses.

That and annually losing the AFC East.

Though it makes me laugh over the centuries of "Bonnie Prince Charlie" and other Stewart pretenders.
