That’s entertainment


Watching, amazed, the latest Wikileaks kerfuffle unfold this evening. I don’t usually follow news stories through Twitter, but sometimes it’s more fun than straight news on a fast-moving topic. May I recommend the Vault 7 hashtag?

Speaking of Twitter, my bank tweeted this picture at me. I like that picture. That’s the kind of picture they use when they want my business.

When they want to virtue-signal, they use this imagery. Lest you think I’m just a grumpy old bigot, they’ve been hammering that picture since before Christmas. It’s on multiple banners hanging from the ceiling of our local branch. It’s the main image on the sign-in page of their online banking site. We get it already.

I like businesses (and politicians) better when they’re pandering to me, not trying to teach me Very Special life lessons or give me my medicine.

Eh. Back to Twitter. And watch your mouth — the TV is listening.

“Now it’s clear why Hillary and Obama created the “Russian Hacking” narrative. So the CIA could spy on Trump as a foreign agent. #Vault7″

Chelsea makes spinach pancakes – they look disgusting. And, for some reason, she saves them. They are really trying to shove this nobody down our throats.

The Clintons cashed some big checks, for work to be performed at a later date. But Hillary didn’t win! And they spent the money! As a former President, Bill is entitled to certain perks, but not Hillary. So it’s up to Chelsea to stand surety.

Seems to me I saw that second image on TV, in ads from one of the banks here. Gah.

spinach, love spinach.
Pancakes, also.
Pancakes with spinach IN them, fine, I can handle that.
Even funny furrin pancakes recipes where ya stick things in that just ain’t ‘Mericun’.

Those things in the link?
Sure, you can serve them with your green beer just before you head out to capture the leprechaun and steal his magically delicious lucky charms.

As long as we’re being stupid, why not KALE? Or Arugula?

And another set of things on pancakes!
If you were anyone else…would you want THAT picture to be the presentation of your cooking to the world?

Inconsistent sizing and cook time, tossed without grace of care into a heap. Nothing says “come eat!” quite like that picture.

So, next year on Feb 28, we can look forward to Stoaty encouraging us all to enjoy pancakes with THAT picture as the Pancake Day post graphic!

Worse she said that they would not be able to eat them all but will save some to eat later. Who re-serves pancakes??

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.
