Doing my bit to discourage jihadism.

It’s often said…

that the online age has reduced common civility and plain old good manners. Maybe not…

Beatnik Daddio can be found here. Be advised that ladies often appear, without warning, in various stages of undress.

A certain pin up princess is celebrating her birthday today.

I know, I know – isn’t it ironic? Gina’s having the birthday, but YOU’re getting the gifts!

A long time ago I made a joke to the birthday girl about living in the Empire of Gina. Ten years later, men and women in many uniforms around the world have had their days at the front cheered by the Pin Ups For Vets calendar. It’s been my pleasure to support Gina in her good work, and spread some of that calendar happiness to Diggers far from home.

And the preparations have begun for next year’s edition.

Happy Birthday, Gina.

Putting Brexit in historical context.

Comment from source unknown:

Do not underestimate us Brits. While the bombs were falling all around London, we were pulling our kettles from the rubble and brewing up. You bastards never scared us back then, and you sure as hell won’t now.

Goodbye, you money grabbing cockroaches.

It will make a great movie.

A friend on another site posted this story

Second Arctic ‘Doomsday Vault’ will allow the world’s precious books to survive Armageddon

and asked:

Does any of this seem a bit futile and ridiculous to anyone else? If the world got as bad as all that 1. Really how many people who are struggling to survive will even know about this. 2. And exactly how would anybody get there if they were even able to access such strenuous travel and make it back alive with the seeds and those much needed digital archives of British newspapers and such…

Those two wandering insane brain cells inside my skull chose that moment to collide.

The Apocalypse…. a meteor has landed on Washington, drawn to Earth by the hubristic folly of Man and his global warming. The White House is no more, and neither is Dictator Trump, who was in the fifty-third year of his unconstitutional rule. (‘Daddy, who was Hillary Clinton?’ ‘Someone we have to hate for two minutes every day, son.’) All the other evil oligarchs, including Rupert Murdoch IV and President Merkel-Chavez of Greater Northern Europe, were killed on impact, being there in the American capital to celebrate the Dictator’s birthday and drink the blood of a few infants. Unfortunately, with all these control freaks gone, there is nobody left on the planet who has any damn clue about how anything works.
Will Smith plays Clementine Pelosi, a transgendered archaeologist and hockey champion, teaming up with Scarlett Johansson as Eugenia Einstein, a love droid who was misassembled and accidentally given an IQ in the 180s. Together they must locate the Doomsday Vault and retrieve the books that will enable humanity to avoid collapsing into chaos and primitivism. They have nothing in common – except they are the only two people left who can still read. Determined to foil their plan: Iron Schumer, played by Robert Downey Jr, and Martin Sheen as Acting President Wyann E Buttscratcher.

Directed by the unholy love child of David Lynch and Michael Bay.

Lights! Camera! Madness!

Chuck didn’t make it, but Vera did.

Just a few days ago we lost Chuck Berry – who survived to the grand old age of 90. But today, Dame Vera Lynn turns 100.

From the Washington Post:

To fully fathom the meaning of Vera Lynn to the British, you have to picture a British soldier, in the depths of Britain’s despair at the outset of World War II, hunkered down somewhere in the North Africa, wondering how, if ever, it would end and whether, if ever, he’d get home.

“We were very lucky,” said one such soldier, William Pitcher, in a 1996 oral history. “All the war, even the worst of times, we had a good short wave radio system. In fact, I can remember it was desert, we’d, in the nighttime, on Saturday nights when Vera Lynn come on we’d get the radio off the truck and we’d cover ourselves up with tarp and turn it on. And we’d listen to Vera sing to the troops on a Friday night, on the radio.”

As well as her radio work Dame Vera sang in concert for British troops in Egypt and Burma.

As Barry Humprhies put it:

That voice is as much the Second World War as Winston Churchill’s voice.
