The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Now there's a big load of butt-hurt just waiting to happen.

This is me...

Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

I would, but fitting Mrs. Camel into the side-car would be a struggle, she's an opera singer type. :D

No, they don't have brakes, only pedals and a single gear. You stop by ceasing to pedal.

My slightly bonkers friend, Merlin owns one and he's welcome to it.

One needs to remember that they were popular back when everyone had seven kids, because they expected to lose at least three of them to the croup and wandering bands of pedophiles before they got married.

These contraptions helped with the culling. Like steam powered conveyances and fruit cake. In all, it was considered better than to die of ennui playing cricket or being sent to Australia.

Oh dear, look what I found on the bookshelves while having a tidy up. A gift from my grandparents and one of the first books I ever read. How times have changed.

IIRC, Sambo (parents Mumbo and Jumbo) tangles with a tiger.

So stereotype notwithstanding, he must be an Indian Sambo. :)

Just because he's little and black does not mean he's African Old Boy. :p

And if you read between the lines real closely, you'll also discover that he's transitioning.

Looking at the inner sleeve of that book, I see listed there a book by Nora Case called "Ten Little Nigger Boys."



:o :o :o ???WHAT DAFUQ??? :o :o :o



A bit of googling shows that Nora Case was an Australian author who in the early 1900s wrote that book, along with the sequel "Ten Little Nigger Girls"! Each of these books was the story of ten "nigger" children who, one by one, die in horrible ways! And these were written for children to read!

The past certainly is a foreign country. WOW!

Correct! Our hero, Sambo, outwits the evil tigers by getting them to chase each others' tails around a tree so fast that they melt and turn into ghee. :)

I know it's outrageously un-PC by today's standards but it's really quite a charming childrens' book and I read it over and over. :)

Moving on, in the interests of marital harmony, I've had to install a fag-o-cycle rack in my den...
