You may have to burn the pressies you’ve bought …

… or flush them down the loo.

Christmas is so awfully close but did you give any thought to the terrible danger that maybe the presents you’ve bought for unsuspecting people are racist, sexist and even rapist?!

Fortunately, we have a list here, via Chuckles, of presents you really need to destroy now. Yes, I know you’ve paid good money, relying on Yodel and Royal Mail to get them to you but they’re still going to have to be flushed down the loo or burnt.

Example:

1. Toys like army men promote aggression in boys and can lead them to abuse women later in life.

According to an article in The Conversation, those little green plastic soldiers promote a violent culture where women are treated like lesser beings — and can even lead to “behavior such as domestic violence.” “Maybe Santa should rethink what he’s putting in the stockings of our young men,” the article warns.

Five most stupid

Rossa’s mother sends this list of the ten most stupid acts known and it’s not bad, particularly N1:

And Number 1: Only in America…could the rich people- who pay 86% of all income taxes – be accused of not paying their “fair share” by people who don’t pay any income taxes at all.

So let’s broaden that and place some constraints on the list. Excluded are personal acts of stupidity done by you or others, things like stupid crims and the like. Let’s stick to public acts by someone in charge or by some body or organization.

Let’s also reduce it to 5, so as not to tax the brain on a Saturday evening. What would your top five be? Think about it and if you’d answer in comments …? I’ll do the same, shall give it some thought now.…

Popular favourites done [over] in the Flemish style

When Chuckles sent this, I thought hmmmm, JD’s going to tear his hair out and run screaming from the room, so clearly, this bitta kulcha had to be run:

future past

Sacha’s discovery of these characters, which goes back to childhood, gave birth to a desire to re-appropriate them, to take them back to a time forming the cornerstone of modern western art. Sacha wants to confront these icons of American culture with contemporary painters of the Flemish school. The collection demonstrates the use of 17 century techniques counterpointing light and shadow to illustrate nobility and fragility of the super powerful of all times.

Simples, eh?

Can’t wait for our resident nobleman to comment on that one, matey. :)

A cautionary tale for Friday evening

christmas_cheer

Your humble blogger has no problem whatever with flak for something he’s actually done wrong.  That’s fine.

When he writes a post such as ‘modern’ women have had this coming for some time, then obviously those who consider themselves ‘modern’ women are not going to like that. They are not going to heed anything in the least – they will continue on their destructive way even more insanely and blight all our lives, the joyless harridans, as James Delingpole calls them.

They will totally ignore their sisters who are trying to get them to see reason.

And they will fling dung in this blogger’s general direction.

So, no issues there, OK?  Par for the course.

No, the one which is puzzling is this.  Today, for the most part, I was trying to honour my mother’s memory because I think I didn’t do it all that well last time.  Hope she enjoyed this today as she looked down.…

Serious Complaint

JD advises that a very Serious Complaint was received by the BBC, causing then to spring into action and launch an investigation:

We have a letter from a Mrs Trellis in North Wales complaining about the disgraceful treatment of Samantha by those dirty old men who work in her office!

Mrs. Trellis. No climbing up her then.…

Saturday

You needn’t look at this post if you don’t want, readers.  I mean, it’s a lovely sunny day out there after it rained indoors here last night and we wouldn’t wish to depress you.

Besides, it’s more of the same old same old.

OK?  You’ll keep reading?  Brave people:

Wiggia shakes his head:

Prof. claims racism inherently his fault, apologizes for being white, middle-class, heterosexual man
