It's six days since I was vaccinated and I've not had any since then. Not that I've ever been a bottle of vodka before dinner sort of chap.

Is it generally thought in America that Sputnik 5 is a Trojan Horse? I'm trying to discover any meaning to the idea. No American is ever going to be offered it. How does it qualify as Beware Soviets Bearing Gifts? To whom is it a gift?

Not that I've seen logic as tude's strong point, but he must think his cartoon's meaningful in some way.

And... the Russians are going to covertly swap their corrupt Trojan Horse vaccine into the USA while stealing the good American-made juice, now that the Democrats control Washington and enable the swap?

Maybe tude will tell us. On the other hand he rarely has in the past.

Wait a moment and I'll pass them the Hoisin sauce.

I know the racist stereotype of Asians is that they have buck teeth like that charming cartoon of China up above but the only "Asian" I've ever seen with teeth like that was Mickey Rooney in Breakfast at Tiffany's which was released 60 years ago.

Why let go of a perfectly good racist stereotype, right Tude?

Mr Limbaugh? No tude, not heaven-bound. Wrong destination altogether. As his obituary put it, "He became a singular figure in the American media, fomenting mistrust, grievances and even hatred on the right for Americans who did not share their views, and he pushed baseless claims and toxic rumors long before Twitter and Reddit became havens for such disinformation".

What a dog.

You know, we do seem to presume that Tude actually agrees with the sentiments of the cartoons that he posts.
It is possible that he shares the ones that he finds silly and useless.

Hm, prolly not.
That "Post Turtle one, though, that is a very old joke. First time I heard the verbal version, I believe that it was recalling something Will Rogers said in the '30s.
And the last, was referring to The Donald, just a few years ago.

The guy was a waste of Oxygen. I tuned in to his radio show once back in the early 90s after some co-workers commented on how funny he was.

Cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth - if we're to talk of the chap who returned his God-given talent at the pearly gates.

I'm just as bothered at how these untalented cartoon-propagandists copy the same idea from each other across the Internet. If one chap's done it then it's done, no professional would steal like that.

I suspect it is the same reason I copied as many as I could when it came to 'retuning his talent from God'. Like any cartoonist such ideas are obvious.
At first, when I heard him mention his talent on loan did not understand the meaning, then once he gave an explanation and I like it.

It was like a trademark.

Have you been sleeping through the social changes of the last fifty years, or are you awake?

That's not a question, it's a definition.

The thread and the cartoons are both designed to be inflammatory.

The good thing about regularizing the position of undocumented residents, tude, is that then you'll not be able to call them illegals any longer. Win win.

I'd be delighted if women-only sports were opened to all gender participation, for all sports. The sports would garner more support than any alternative single-gender sport rules, that would attract greater advertising than any alternative single-gender sport, the other forms would shrink to obscure peculiarities and gender discrimination against women would finally be eliminated from sports structures. It would be a huge step forward for women. Women could finally participate on equal terms with men in sports contests. It ought to have happened half a century ago.

Removing gender discrimination worked with universities, to give a major example, where for centuries it was common (though erroneous) knowledge that women had inferior minds and lacked the capacity for coherent thought. Sport is long overdue for the same liberating kick.

It would be quite nice if there were a more equal race and gender balance within sports governing and managerial structures too, while we're discussing race and gender in sport.

It's the job of the media to bring facts to my attention, not to tell me what other people think of the facts. Least of all their own paid opinion writers.

I have no problem at all with lots of people in New York dying of Covid while Cuomo was Governor, the division of responsibility between Federal and State agencies was bolloxed by the White House from the beginning. What I object to is the extent to which the chap has been trying to disguise what actually happened, and that comes down to his staff. His responsibility is the sort of advisers he chose to control his staff and if they were trying to manipulate opinion then that's Cuomo's error of judgement.
