The greatest fucking country in the world

  • I have been asked to write a short article for this blog (NOTE: The site is in Welsh. No, it's not in Klingon. Yes, I've heard that line before). The article should be about something international with an American point of view, which creates something of a challenge for me because Americans tend not to think about international things. Especially when there's a new Jib-Jab cartoon. Those are hilarious.
    And we've got our own problems to deal with, like when that guy from that band you've never heard of says a naughty word.
    Anyhoo, if you've got any ideas on what I should write about, let me know.

  • Here's something to look forward to: Next Monday is expected to be the worst day of the year.

  • Yeesh. What's this woman complaining about? She gets a free medical tool.

  • "It is what it is, dog."

  • This blog still needs pictures. Here's one:

    I don't know anyone that would accuse Welsh of sounding like Klingon, but when I try to visit Welsh blogs, try to be friendly, try to learn the language, spiteful Welshonites sometimes track me back to my (now defunct) blog and leave nasty messages. They also leave behind frightened sheep and unspeakable stains on my carpet.

    Perhaps you can tell me why Welshonianlings so distrust strangers?

    Oh, nice picture, by the way.

    The best to you and yours.

    It's that whole "protecting the language for 2,600 years against various forms of oppression" thing. The Welshies get a little touchy.

    I'm glad you like the picture. I think it has all the necessary elements. I'm not sure what those elements are, but I think it has them.

    Well, two elements I noticed are a morose, half-naked weightlifter and an artificial Frenchman. If anyone has a better interpretation of what that picture represents, I'd welcome differing opinions.

    Clearly this picture depicts figuratively the rolling, virginal beauty of 19th century England and the cunning, duplicitous lure of the lurking Industrial Revolution.

    Or yeah, I can see how you get the weightlifter/Frenchman thing.
