Beautiful sunny day in our garden today, so I stayed inside and made laserbeams shoot out of Mary Poppins’ eyes.
Did I ever tell you my Mary Poppins story? I was five when the movie came out and I was absolutely besotted with it. Made my poor mother take me back to see it, like, five times.
After the last time, I said to her, “Mother, if you died, do you think there’s any chance Papa would remarry Julie Andrews?”
Yeah, I don’t think our relationship ever fully recovered.
It’s Friday! Go forth and have an awesome weekend. And no, nobody had Omar Sharif in the Dead Pool, unless they spelled it funny.

Today’s mini scandal, Hillary! telling a supporter to get to the end of the line. ‘Tis a small thing, Twitter’d out of all proportion, but it is remarkable how much robot Hillary! projects whenever she opens her mouth.
As a side observation, I’m going to become so familiar with extant photographs of European aristocracy in the next two years.
Oh, speaking of icky, they’ve moved my bin day. While Monday really sucked enough without a garbage collecting exercise at the end of it, I am NEVER going to remember to put it out Wednesday night.

He’s got this.

In other news, Emma Sulkowicz‘s mattress graduated from Columbia today with a B.A. in Anthropology. “Sure, it’s a bullshit degree,” the mattress is quoted as saying, “but was I supposed to do with all these art credits?”
Good weekend, folks!

Hillary’s “oh, you!” face. No ‘shopping at all.

It’s great fun watching Hillary! try to pass, isn’t it? She’s uploaded HumanBeing 2.0, but she hasn’t worked all the bugs out yet.
Kang and Kodos, ladies and gents — my favorite cartoon political metaphor. Sure, bigger and in color.

I’m indebted to Feynmangroupie for this one (bigger). I’m not a Doctor Who fan — I tuned in a few times back when the effects were crudest and thought, “nah” — but this is a deeelightful character.
Lady Cassandra O’Brien.Δ17 (that’s pronounced “delta 17″) is a human so old she’s been kept alive by 709 plastic surgeries. She’s nothing but a brain in a jar attached to a piece of skin with a sort of face. Though she’s reduced to a CGI mouth and two eyes, it’s easy enough to recognize actress Zoë Wanamaker in the role.
Do watch the introduction to this character — it’s funny enough to be worth your time.

Saddle up, here we go heading into the 2016 election (or as bloggers call it Easy Pickin’s Season).
If you missed this weekend’s bonus Photoshop, do feel free to spread it around should you find it worthy. I’ve seen it in the wild once already, which feels me with deelight. (Forgot to sign it, tho).
That was a Photoshopper’s dream: a strong, simple idea, lots of big hi-res photos to choose from, close correspondence between the thing and the thing you’re morphing it into. Mutilating poor old Chelsea was so easy; the hard part was eliminating the type in the original Elle cover. Thanks again to RD Brewer for sending me the idea.
Hillary! isn’t so easy, but if ever aristocrat needed mocking…

If only I could think of some way to parody it.

I was going to ask how I missed this creepy bunny, but I chased it up and found I missed it because it’s three years old.
More creepy Easter bunnies. How do they allus get the Easter Bunny so wrong?
