This is the photo the Daily Mail used to illustrate the terrible floods happening in Venice again. Stay classy, urinalists.

Visit the link. That’s the reddest of scarlet dresses.

And yes, ExpressoBold has won the Dead Pool with Chuck Yeager. The more tributes I read, the more he sounds like the most badassical of men.

You know what that means, Sweaseleers. New Dead Pool Friday, 6 WBT.

Someone please explain to me the tube from mask to purse? Is it a straw and there is a tasty beverage in there?

Also isn’t Venice kind of famous for being pretty much flooded all the time?

I had to look at that color picture a third time examining it even more carefully each time .

Just an educated guess, but I would say that’s a hooker with a hookah.

Gentlemen – be careful. If you look at that scarlet dress too long you will go Venetian Blind.

I hope she was glued into the top of that dress.
Of course all guys hope otherwise.

I’ve been plenty of times to Venice in Dec and I must say that I don’t ever recall it being warm enough for me to wear my hooker costume, even when I had the body to wear a hooker costume.

Didn’t Percival Lowell predict this? That the Venusian canals would overflow their banks? Oh, wait. He said that about Marseilles, didn’t he. Never mind.

I don’t have twitter, but was reading yours and saw that you asked for news sites. These are good: https://www.citizenfreepress.com/
and this is an aggregator from 8Kun which is a chan with news before it’s news https://wearethene.ws/ (it gets DDos’d a bit, but very worthwhile)

Hooker Hookah is a pretty good brand name.

Daily Fail.

Gotta keep that gerbil warming theme alive
give you your daily dose of “pert” “ample” “very busty” “taut abs” “curved” “plunging skin tight dress” photographs at the same time!

Wait, isn’t that Demi Rose with a mask on!!!!!!!

Pity they couldn’t get Meghan and Harry to give us a heartfelt comment about how this affects their privacy or relate it to all the rain drops that contributed to the flooding.

Or perhaps a story about what the Scandinavian Skold thinks about Donald Trump, who caused this flooding by pulling out of the climate treaty we never ratified in Paris.

@Pupster Yeah, Venezia floods every winter Acqua Alta they calls it. It’s kind of amusing cause ever so often you hear a splash and a curse as someone missteps on the wooden walkways and gets a boot full of water. You get used to wearing wellies, we lived in Venezia for a year, and I’d rather deal with water than wall-to-wall tourists. It also very cold right now, so I’d guess that the photo is connected with some sort of PR, and the Cardinal/Doge red is a major clue that it has something to do with Carnivale. This sort of thing happens all the time, you turn a corner and some bizarre thing is happening.

One of the bestest things ever is Venezia in the snow…it’s absolutely magical at night. My two favorite winter cities are Venezia and Wien.
