Folks, I can’t tell you what’s going on in this country at the moment.

No, really. I can’t. I’m a guest in a place that’s suddenly morphed into a single giant, throbbing raw nerve ending and I’m trying to keep my trap shut and not attract attention to myself.

Nobody likes a mouthy immigrant.

Quite seriously , I grew weary of the news some time last October. So… I stopped reading it. I read about old cars, and I come here. That’s about it besides working the WSJ crossword puzzle.

It’s been quite nice. My only exception was visiting Drudge after someone here mentioned that Mueller couldn’t find nuthin’ but nuthin’. However I found that I could only take two days of that stuff and retreated back into the Cloister.

So, SWeasel is my main source of news it seems and today I have learned good news again. Without reading the article, admittedly, it seems I can safely assume that Cadbury is still in business!

So, it’s as if Britain saw some of those Japanese contest TV shows and said, “Hold my beer.”

I think it is about time y’all had yourself a revolution. With your yank background I’m sure you could provide expert advice to the Brits.

In times of trouble like these troubled times, I find cookies to be a great comfort. And biscuits and sausage gravy.

It’s going to be decided the way elephants are bred.
It’s done on a very high level.
There’s a lot of stomping and screaming involved.
And it takes two years to get any results.

As a guest (said the guy who’s a guest) you’re best to let them sort it out without advice from the yank.
Besides if need be we’ll see if we can smuggle Uncle B in should that become necessary.
Does he speak any Spanish, that will be a huge help.

Headline musing over morning coffee (while a pomchee chews my toes – ow! Dammit! )

That can’t possibly be the record.

Who would want to have that listed in Guinness?

Isn’t this sort of headline going to promote more and more of this behavior?

Did he take the wrappers off?

Would the ones without cream be listed as a different record?

Why hasn’t Trump condemned this and what action will he take to discourage this guy?

I bet this kind of thing wouldn’t happen if Boris was in charge.

A lot of this insanity has been going on for a while. I’m reading mystery novels by Julian Symons, a British author, published in the ’80s and ’90s. He was already chronicling Britain’s decline. Same for Ruth Rendell. (By the way, I recommend their works very highly.)

Charles Moore’s column is pretty depressing this week and we have an insane clown show posse running for president.

I have great faith in the resilience of both our peoples…we’ve survived worse.

Keep your peckers up.

BTW- VDH has an excellent column up today recounting all the failed Progressive hits on Trump that reads like a Roadrunner script.

This is why I can never leave Texas.

Dead Pool #119 ends if S. Weasel approves!

Deborah HH wins the dick with Doolittle Raider Richard Cole!
Richard E. Cole (September 7, 1915 – April 9, 2019) was a career officer in the United States Air Force. He was one of the airmen who took part in the Doolittle Raid, serving as the co-pilot to Jimmy Doolittle in the lead plane of the raid.

@ExpressoBold – Sweasie has to OK it, natch, but Cole is was definitely a celebrity in my book! Congratulations to Deborah HH!

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.
