Perhaps this should be followed up by an apology from CERN for their April 1993 statement. Something along the lines of, “Yes we know we said the World Wide Web would be free to anyone, but we didn’t consider that the average troll could actually use a keyboard, let alone know how to switch on their computer. Sorry about that.”.

    The only criticism I have of Trump in that video is that he should have had his jacket fastened. He was inspecting the Queen’s Guard, for goodness sake, not wandering to his local New York deli. Perhaps he doesn’t understand formal dress codes.

    I wonder if his nationality explains him wearing his tie so that the end hangs over his trousers and appears to be an advertisement, pointing to his groin? On the occasion of my being allowed to wear civilian clothes on completion of my military basic training, I was told that the point at the end of the tie should be level with the upper edge of the waistband (flat edged ties were not allowed), and have followed this rule ever since. No idea what debretts has to say about this.

      The Donald perhaps is not au fait with all that – did you see the glitzy lift in Trump Towers [sic]?

    He is American, Trump. Thank goodness we are speaking of him as our leader instead of the poisoned assortment from which we had to choose from on either side. [I saw an episode on Perry Mason recently in which a box of poision chocolate assortments was the focus of the investigation. I guessed the murderer right off and why and how and all that! Cuddles was miffed.]

    Although he is from New York City, well, nuff said.

    Had he consulted one of his friends from down South, he most assuredly would have been properly buttoned, brushed, shoe shined, nails clipped and clean, etc.

    However, had he consulted other friends or constituents from down South they may have advised another look. With the sweltering weather — shoes optional. Overalls — sans the shirt due to weather. Do note that overalls take care of two birds so to speak. 1.) Always neat and tucked in like. 2.) One’s derriere is always covered if one must sit on one’s haunches (as those receiving lines in your parts get long, reel long ya hear?). Of course there would be a few dozen of those ‘LOL’s’ if Janeiee Bell Sue Mae forgot to stitch up that gaping hole in the hiney parts of the overalls that Trump split when he was laughing at Soy Boy’s eye brow just a fallen off for the whole world t’see that one ole day. Course now, Soy Boy was chuckling so hard at Trump’s flip flap comb over jest a swirling while gettin t’on that aeroplane of hisn’. Those two, how they tease.

    Now serous like, along with THE most important advice on the president’s dress by the 2nd Southern Consult for visitin’ and inspectin’ the Royal Guard would be several concerns, 1.) Comfort 2.) Not wanting to show off too much. Modesty in a gent is admirable. 3.) Sipping wine through the straw is much easier, or semi sweet iced tea from a Red Solo cup durn inspection…the heat, the heat…ALl of the concerns would be taken, well into consideration as whether he should wear those new dentures he jes got, or his shiny 10 carrot gold tooth that goes up front for special timeses, or jes go commando and leave ’em all out –like he could do his undie draws.

    What say you James Higjam?

    P.S. Glad you are still alive ‘n kickin’ after the negative excitement a year ago!
    I best git out t’ way afore you kick on me a bit!
