Bank of England Governor declares new tallow fiver “delicious!”


“Try it with the mac and cheese!” Mark Carney enthused.


Eh. Just kidding. He says, “shit, bruh, we didn’t know there was animal shit in this shit.” They’re looking for a way to make these awful plastic fivers without animal products, somehow.

I wonder if that means they’ll recall all the haram bills already in circulation.

Okay, now. Ding dong, Fidel is dead! Not only is that spectacular news for the free world, but it means Deborah won herself some dick! See you all back here tomorrow, 6WBT for DEAD POOL ROUND 91!

Are you ready for Friday? I’m ready for Friday.

Got me thinking. If the plastics or ink in the new note aren’t made with animal fats, but with petroleum products, wouldn’t the use of petroleum also offend, since it’s allegedly the reduction of ancient critters (and vegetation)? Are dinosaurs Kosher? Haram?

On the road tomorrow—I’ll be gone 500 miles when the day is done. Headed to the NE corner of the square part of the state and I don’t mean maybe.

I’ll stand down for the next Dead Pool. But Rahool looks poorly, don’t you think? You all have a good weekend.

Now, see, there you go OldFert. Uncle B swears they were never taught that petroleum is rotten dinosaurs, but I was sure I remembered that. Hence the Esso sign with the brontosaurus on it.

Travel safely, Deborah. And yes, this rating system sucks. I thought it had died a natural death for a while, but it looks like I’ll have to kill it.

Oh! In case nobody follows the link — that isn’t Photoshopped. The Governor of the Bank of England is really dipping money into a vat of food, for some reason.

I don’t remember being taught that oil came from dinosaurs, but it is something I grew up with. Husband remembers being taught. But we grew up in Texas, where the truth butts right up against bullshit 🙂

On the other hand, Hillary Rodham Clinton will never be President, so there’s that…..

Hi All,

I have a sign placed on my fuel filler door that reads “Powered by Recycled Dinosaurs” with a green Brontosaurus in the center.

Sinclair Oil Company is the gasoline supplier with the Brontosaurus on their signs.

ESSO is the gasoline that “Put a tiger in your tank”. At one time ESSO gave away tiger tails that could be fitted to the car filler pipe.

See you later today in the Dead Pool.

Let me see if I have this straight:

We can’t have money made of paper because currency paper is cotton and wood which is bad – because plants, raping Gaia, &c.;

OTOH, plastic is made from oil – enough said right there;

Plus, the plastic contains tallow, which if pork offends mohammedans, if beef, Hindus, if chickens, Rastafarians (I guess);

Metal is clean out because it must be mined, see above, raping Gaia.

That pretty much leaves us back with rocks and maybe recycled tires, or tyres for Pounds.

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.
