And don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Isn’t it (or would it not be) just marvellous to know that the monies YOU worked for were being hijacke  (oops) funnelled via your Government for ‘good works’? You will be funding churches and chapels and stuff instead of having the fruits of your labours fund your kids through college — ain’t that ever so sweet of you?


So via the orifices of God’s ministries I’m voting you a seat right next to Jesus at God’s table: it is a far far better thing you do, than anything you might ever have done.

(Democracy, though … she can’t be beat~!)

No. 1

“A bearded US Army soldier who worships Thor, the Norse god of thunder, is being permitted to keep his beard as part of the military’s effort to be more religiously accommodating.

In 2017, the Army decided to allow soldiers to wear a turban, beard or hijab for religious reasons. Initially, religious accommodation of facial hair in the Army seemed to be directed at Sikh service members (beards are a religious requirement for male Sikhs).

Now, however, it appears this new policy also permits adherents of the Norse pagan faith, also known as heathens, to keep their beards. Unlike Sikhs, Norse pagans are not required to wear beards as part of their faith, but facial hair is apparently encouraged.”

Well now …

“Mr Argus, Sir?”devil-2 BOP

“Yes, Little Virginia, sweet child?”

“Sir—wot’s that strange twirly racket filling the air?”

“I think, Child … it’s several millions of deceased US warriors spinning in their graves …

So ol’ Sam is getting a wee bit desperate, is he? But let’s not knock it—them Vikings were a ferocious bunch, actually quite accomplished in many ways—and your God is whoever you make it.





A humble salute to someone whose works I’d often seen and enjoyed without ever pondering the source—

—I admire those who pop the bubbles of the self-aggrandising and pompous whilst duly crediting those who earn the credit. This world is an emptier place for him having left it.

(awwww, c’mon … who hasn’t?)—and needed to pad out the bones:

Child was a favorite of audiences from the moment of her television debut on public television in 1963, and she was a familiar part of American culture and the subject of numerous references, including numerous parodies in television and radio programs and skits. Her great success on air may have been tied to her refreshingly pragmatic approach to the genre, “I think you have to decide who your audience is. If you don’t pick your audience, you’re lost because you’re not really talking to anybody. My audience is people who like to cook, who want to really learn how to do it.”

—so I burgled Wikipedia ‘cos I was intrigued.

We live and learn (perhaps mostly if not entirely) thanks to folks who quietly get on with making a go of things. Salutations where due—

—and as it’s breakfast time here I’m off to murder an omelette*.

And a bucket of coffee …

* Literally. My omelettes are to die from.


dragonwas quoted in my readings

as saying that he didn’t shake hands

… as it was beneath the dignity of his office (president, you see).


what might ol’ George (who cheerfully wore a pinny and happily shook hands when he deemed it apt) (I suppose in a personal sense?) have thought or said about the dignity of that same office nowadays—?

“Here’s Hi Fives to ya, George baby! Boom boom!”


Yes, well …

… moving on …

… I did read (at one time) that it was impossible to fall off of a Segway—but didn’t some other dignified US President manage it? (Not easy to trump that card … but he’s working on it.)



devil-29973__340 copysayeth the American (where else?) televangelist “I needed a fourth jet.”

I’d give you the source of the news article that jangled the cash in my pockets but it’s a print article in a recent NZ newspaper. Don’t fret, just google the headline as it appeared—

“The Lord told me I needed a fourth jet, televangelist insists”

—and you too may find enlightenment. But wait, read now and it gets even better (just be careful what you read about)—

—and it gets even better when the nice, honest, sincere, God-fearing man further explai  justifies himself—

“Now people say . . . can’t you go with this one?” he said, pointing to a picture of the plane he uses. “Yes, but I can’t go it one-stop. And if I can do it one stop, I can fly it for a lot cheaper, because I have my own fuel farm. And that’s what’s been a blessing of the Lord.”

—don’t ask me. I have no idea what a ‘fuel farm’ is (but I guarantee they don’t come cheap*).

Bugbear big

“Hey, you! Yeah you, Bub! Yer name Argus?”

Oops …

Brrr. Moving on, perhaps you, too, could ask The Lord for one of these blessings—

—and until ya try ya never knows ya luck.

Sufficient unto the day is the televangelising thereof so I’ll leave you with this thought—
