I swear I’m taking crazy pills

Did you know Ukraine president Volodymyr Zelenskyy was the voice of Paddington Bear in the Ukrainian version? Why, yes. And here he is playing Hava Nagila on the piano with his penis. Zelenskyy is the real spelling, too. I looked it up.

It’s all a little much for me. I don’t know what is actually going on in Ukraine. I mean, I do believe Russia is doing something big and scary and I’m worried about where this is all going, but the narrative is just…surreal. I get the creeping feeling I’m being played somehow.

I dunno. Maybe two years of lockdown and I’ve got the jimm-jamms. But, hey – about that? Over here, they’re just quietly dropping all that covid stuff, including mandates. Just like that. Under the fog of war.

Ehhhh…I don’t know what I’m getting at. I’m’a go take a bath.

@Stoaty, the one thing we can be certain of is that the West has no clue. Petter of Mentourpilot ‘splains how the sanctions will affect the aviation industry, suppliers and aircraft leasing companies…which of course has yet to rebound after the Great Lockdown.

It’s a right ‘orrible mess.

I posted this yesterday over at Instapundit:

Too many woke companies, celebrities, questionable educational institutions, and countries have jumped on the save Ukraine bandwagon. It makes me suspicious.

“Free Ukraine!” is the new “Free Tibet!” They can’t champion the last one anymore so they needed a new pet cause. Most people don’t really think too deeply about this situation – it’s just about a Big Guy picking on a Little Guy.

If you’re feeling played, that just means you’re paying attention.

It’s just a reset. You’re new flocked up world will be returned to you momentarily.

The first bit of news will be that we’ve always been at war with East Asia, the second will be that the chocolate ration will be increased from 15 to 10.

But I did see a hilarious meme…

“As a German, I just wanna get some things straight.

The entire western world wants us to:

-Build up a huge army
-March through Poland
-Fight the Russians if needed

Just writing that down, so there is no misunderstanding in the future.”

Oh, and in Brandon’s head on Jan 6th last year, rioters stormed the Capitol…and killed 5 cops.

So we’re in good hands, it could have been led by Korn-pop and they could have killed 30 cops, so we should be grateful he’s dialed the lies down

Biden gave Putin the okay, Putin took it and sent his varsity squad to “invade”. Then when the Ukrainians started fighting back, he sent in some troops whose loyalty he’s not confident of.

In the end, he’ll sit down, get what he wants, and Biden will take credit for preventing WWIII.

He also starred in a sitcom where a school teacher gets elected president of Ukraine. He was the school teacher.

In one scene he silences a massive argument in parliament by yelling “PUTIN IS INVADING!” Part of me hopes he used that line when the invasion actually started.

Lady C treated us to little history lesson re Ukraine, and I’ve been reading further. Kievan Rus, first East Slavic state, was founded by the Viking Oleg, ruler of Novgorod from about 879. In 882 he seized Smolensk and Kiev, and the latter city, owing to its strategic location on the Dnieper River, became the capital of Kievan Rus. Oh and guess what the people of Rus were called? Yep Russians. Putin gets it wrong when he claims that it was the Russian state that created Ukraine, but the other way around.

Over the years I’ve known quite a few immigrants from Ukraine and all were immensely proud of Kyiv and Odesa, but they considered themselves Russian.

Something fishy is going on.
