Behold, the Crooked Forest in Poland, where every tree is bent 90° at the base, facing due North. It’s believed to have been bent by the hand of man in the Thirties, possibly to aid boat or furniture building. Which doesn’t explain the due North thing. Photo by Kilian Schönberger.

It’s worth following the link and clicking around some of the other pitchers. I know, I know…it’s all very artsy-fartsy, but there’s some very cool things to look at.

I rather liked “Portraits of Auto Mechanics in the Style of Renaissance Paintings,” too. 😉

OT to this post, but in reference to the earlier post BEGAK, saw this at the Telegraph and thought of your chickens as winter falls. Mind you, I suspect you would have to sedate them to make this work.

Ha! Onkle B sent me that earlier. I told him I thought our chickens would flip out. (“My wings are paralyzed! Begak!”).

According to the Gruaniad, there’s some shit going down in Blackfriar’s, and Brussels is on lockdown.

PS: Mali? Tourists?

Who the f&%k goes to MALI for a vacation? It’s like Libya, without the charm or the accommodations.

That’s how I feel about a lot of places in the world that people visit, Mojo. All the amazing things to see on this planet and you go to MALI?

I’m always getting MALAWI and MALI mixed up, so I consulted my atlas. Yep. One is half desert, the other half jungle. I’ll pass.

And of course, HRH Dumbo is all in on the Climate Change causing terrorism meme. Moron. Can’t wait for this dink to be king.

Oh, and my outdoor kitty, Edward G. Robincat, is prowling and yowling. Hungry cats know no restraint.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
