Eva Braun’s nightdress

Eva Braun

I find the weirdest stuff doing Google Images searches (though why I was doing a search for ‘nightdress’ I’ll never tell). This one is indeed Eva Braun’s — and, yes, it is embroidered all over with tiny swastikas. No shit.

It’s from a year old article in the Daily Mail about one particularly eccentric British family and their collection of stuff. I recommend it (really. It’s pretty funny).

I hate myself for reading the Mail, but I read it anyway. The Telegraph was once my favorite newspaper, but they’ve slid inexorably toward “lifestyle” pieces and the British equivalent of political RINOism. It’s so boring.

The Mail is impossibly low-rent, but at least they still get pissed off about things. Not always the right amount of pissed off at the right things, maybe, but I’ll take what I can get. Even if I have to go past baby bumps, trout pouts and ‘what’s that up Amy Winehouse’s nose today?’ to get there.

It’s Friday! Drink up.

Scientific evidence has long suggested that moderate drinking offers some protection against heart disease, certain types of stroke and some forms of cancer. But new research shows that stopping drinking — including at moderate levels — may lead to health problems including depression and a reduced capacity of the brain to produce new neurons, a process called neurogenesis.

Define “moderate.”

Hound: trout pout. Also, bonus what’s up Amy Winehouse’s nose today? Doesn’t look like we have any featured baby bumps in today’s issue.

If you think the online version is low rent, you should see it in newsprint.

Nobody fetishizes eccentricity like the Brits.

Winehouse’s nose? Good to see they moved past her impetigo.

Hmmm, that’s not what came to mind when I read trout pout. Oh well. BTW, was Eva Braun a hefty woman? That nightdress looks like a big sack.

Personally, I always thought that Trout Pout was what you did when the big one slips the hook just as you are reaching to collect his juicy little….. tail.

She was slender in her youth. I dunno…maybe she got chunkier toward the end. I just went to find you a picture, BGG, and discovered there’s a website called adolfthegreat.com. I didn’t click on it. I don’t want to be on that list, thanks.

Jesus Christ! Fifty inch knickers for a girl less than five feet tall…

I’m sleepy. Where’s our bedtime Weasel? Minions can get cranky when they’re not tucked in properly.

Stoaty: I found this on a cross-stitch board & thought you might like it.

Happy weekend, all – no ‘puter for me till Monday!

Well, when I read trout pout I saw it as “trout tout.” Thought, oh, must be some uniquely British term for a fishing guide. Now I’m disappointed.

Hmmm…Eva Braun’s nightdress…no sign of Hitler’s underpants anywhere, is there? BTW: sick as a dog and have awful laryngitis…going back to bed to dream about weasel-print pyjamamases.

Isn’t the same thing up Amy Winehouse’s nose every day?

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.
