MG:-

In a letter to Amis Larkin de-euphemised the expression "toilet roll".It was very funny.Did you ever see the film the BBC put out about Larkin's complex penile aggrandisments.

I think,in general,that an educated man of mature years should always be aware of when euphemisms are in operation.(see the Anyone for Kant thread).

Do you know how OB defines "sane"?

I'm guessing that's an allusion to the movie I haven't seen?

Yes. Bear in mind a little pop culture wouldn't hurt you. You know ... to try and keep you grounded, well-rounded, and such.....

But by way of explanation, in the movie "Meet the Parents" (the prequel to "Meet the Fockers"), Greg Focker & his fiancee's dad, Jack Burns, are riding in Jack's car and the song, "Puff the Magic Dragon" comes on the radio. Greg tells Jack that the message is that "puffing the magic dragon" means to smoke a marijuana cigarette. The above is Jack's straight-laced response.

No, I haven't seen that film, but wish I had. Somewhere here I have an essay by Amis (the younger) on Thatcher. It's brilliant. What the hell would have happened to Larkin had he been born in, say, Pittsburg? There's something about the English soil that permits madmens' flourishing. Who/what is OB? Greenblatt's "Will in the World" is fantastic, by the by.

This is still the Bush supporters' aftermath thread, right? Okay, time to get back on track.

Here we see Howard Dean in his least idiotic moment last year...

Man it must be tough choosing a leader from that talent pool.

Now, if you Fockers are Potheads, maybe this one will help you figure out what's wrong with that decision...

<< Staying put. The BushReich suits me just fine. But speaking of "aftermath" LOL..........

This is something to ponder...for Alec & friends moving up yonder Smile
________________________________________

What will Alec Baldwin find in Canada?


Some 10,000 to 20,000 Americans, unable to come to terms with the re-election of President Bush, are believed poised to leave the United States and become Canadians. Many, of course, will remain permanently in the poised position, just like Alec Baldwin, who has apparently been on the tarmac for four years awaiting a plane to some other country. But suppose the disaffected 10,000 to 20,000 actually depart. Will they find happiness? Will they achieve peace of mind north of the border? No, they won't. Instead they will find the following:

Strange and maddening football games.
For reasons nobody can fathom, Canadian football is played on an enormous field, with 12 players on a side and only three downs, so every third play tends to be a punt. Canadian football alone is said to have driven an estimated 2 million Canadians across the border to become U.S. citizens. Many believe Bush could not have won without the disaffected Canadian football vote.

More Canadian music than you can imagine.
Radio stations must play Canadian music at least 35 percent of the time. Strict rules determine what music is Canadian enough to fill the quota. Though Celine Dion is Canadian, her hit "My Heart Will Go On" was insufficiently Canadian, since the lyricist, the songwriter, and the recording were non-Canadian. As a result, thoroughly Canadian pop music stays on the radio long enough to drive many Canadians to distraction, drink, and even Canadian football.

Except for murder, a rate of violent crime as disgraceful as that of the United States.
Many U.S. newspapers salute Canada for its low crime rate. But according to the International Crime Victimization Survey, the rate of certain "contact" crimes (robbery, sexual assault, and assault with force) is over 1.5 times higher in Canada than in the United States.

A national political leader every bit as hard to look at as George Bush.
People who detest President Bush's syntax or cocky gait must consider Prime Minister Paul Martin's disastrous smile. Martin's speechwriter said the PM's "fake smile leads one to assume that Martin's foot is being stepped on by an antelope."

Perplexing food decisions.
Never ask a grocer in Canada for "American" cheese or "Canadian" bacon. Un-Canadian anger may ensue. Also, approach the famous national dessert, the Canadian butter tart, with extreme caution. It is made with brown sugar, eggs, flour, vanilla, and lead. Strong men have been known to eat two at a single sitting, though, because of the lead content, they are usually unable to move for several days afterward.

The customary problems of socialized medicine.
A 2000 report from the Heritage Foundation found long waiting lists, government rationing, and substandard care in Canada's system. Drug spending is controlled, according to the report, by limiting the number of approved drugs and slowing down the approval process. In one four-year period, Canada approved only 24 of 400 new drugs. Keep coming down here for healthcare, Canadians.

A national infatuation with censorship.
Canadians tend to be a benign people who value niceness. So they have a strong tendency to suppress speech that they see as lacking in niceness. Un-nice books and videos are seized at the border or banned from libraries. Any material cited for "undue exploitation of sex" or for being "degrading or dehumanizing" can be banned. Speech is illegal if it "promotes hatred" or spreads "false news." Advertising "directed at children" can be ruled illegal. If the recorded message on your answering machine is deemed discriminatory, you can be prosecuted for it. In Saskatchewan, a newspaper ad listing four biblical citations against homosexuality (just the listing, no text), accompanied by two hand-holding male stick figures with a line drawn across them, was ruled a human-rights offense, and the man who placed the ad was directed to pay $1,800 each to three gay men who were offended by the ad. "Canadians put up with an insane amount of crap that Americans might not," said David Sutherland, former director of the British Columbia Civil Liberties Association.

Canada's trying to be European.
Canada has been aping trends in Europe, from the obsession with multiculturalism, the rising contempt for religion, greater censorship, and even a declining birthrate. Canada's birthrate is 1.49 children per woman, well below the replacement level of 2.1. Canada's elites behave much like those of the United States, favoring judicially imposed decisions over democratic and legislative ones. In Canada, a smaller and less varied nation than the United States, the elites meet less resistance. But there are signs of a pushback. Though the Canadian and American press consistently give the impression that gay marriage is overwhelmingly favored in Canada, a February 2 National Post/Global National poll found that two thirds of Canadians oppose gay marriage and would likely vote against it in a national plebiscite. The polls suggest that Canadians are close to Americans on this issue. It's elite opinion and judges that make Canada look different.

The Chicago Tribune refused to run this cartoon in their paper last week (they ran a "Bizarro" strip instead). They said,

"Today's Prickly City does not meet the Chicago Tribune's standards of fairness. Please enjoy this substitute."

Censorship? Standards? Fairness?

Warning: Do NOT click on THIS if you're at all squeamish LOL.

Those gates are pretty lame, but my ill-will towards French leadership was magnified more by this. Confused Just in case you don't know who the wonderful human being standing next to every fiend's best friend (if indeed Chirac doesn't deserve the title himself) is...

Click here to find out. Meanwhile, Putin's convinced that Iran only wants energy out of Nukes and says we shouldn't worry because they agreed to give the spent fuel back to Russia. Some comfort, that. Rolling Eyes

Don't change the subject, Bill, and start beating Putin: topic still is French-bashing (alternatively UN/Annan).
