And Then, A Little Lightness...

After depressing myself with yesterdays typing regarding dogs legs, I ventured into the Web and thought I’d Nourish some Obscurity where I done did find something that just had to be MINE! ME! ME! MINE! and thus proceeded to copy wot I wanted. In my defence, it do say at the bottom to share the fun so share I am more than happy to do.

Enjoy it and I truly hope it does make you smile a while. Lord knows we need something to smile about right about now.


How did I get on with the above? Exactly as predicted in the above...

Quote;  Ray Bradbury.

“If you don't want a man unhappy politically, don't give him two sides to a question to worry him; give him one. Better yet, give him none. Let him forget there is such a thing as war. If the government is inefficient, top-heavy, and tax-mad, better it be all those than that people worry over it. Peace, Montag. Give the people contests they win by remembering the words to more popular songs or the names of state capitals or how much corn Iowa grew last year. Cram them full of non-combustible data, chock them so damned full of 'facts' they feel stuffed, but absolutely 'brilliant' with information. Then they'll feel they're thinking, they'll get a sense of motion without moving. And they'll be happy, because facts of that sort don't change.”

And Then, It’s Just Not Funny...

I’m sure you’re all well up to speed with the latest insanity gripping this land of ours.

At a time when some fellow of colour has been ‘singing’ about burning the PM’s house down, an opposition MP   talks of lynching a Tory minister and both remain free and untroubled, and let’s not go near anything our newest bestest ever friends have to say about us, we finally see some decisive, strong action and common sense coming from our judicial system with at least one judge willing to step up to the plate and get tough by finding some fellow guilty of a hate crime. Oh joyous day!

And that hate crime would be? Oh, right, some poor sod posted a video, that he stupidly thought would be a bit of fun, of his dog lifting its right leg. That would be a right front leg by the way. Allegedly, the clip has had something like three mill. views with nary a complaint. I also see that no jury was deemed necessary and the judge did all the ‘hard graft’ alone.
”...Sheriff Derek O’Carroll found him guilty of a charge under the Communications Act that he posted a video on social media and YouTube which was grossly offensive because it was “anti-Semitic and racist in nature” and was aggravated by religious prejudice.”

Sentencing is due in a little bit after a while to come and will be announced from way down in the rabbit hole we’re all falling down.

For anyone just back from the dark side of the moon, here are a couple of clicky thingies that’ll lead  you to the sorry tale. Tail? Read the comments and feel the rage  fermenting against the machine.



Interestingly, in just the past week, whenever I’ve passed a dog sitting tethered outside a store, almost all have wagged their tails and raised a leg. I thought these were gestures of friendship but I now know they have far naztier connotations. Bad, bad dogs!

Anyhoo, be warned, if you have a ‘humorous’ clip of your puppy dog or kitten cat or anything really, think twice before popping it on that Tube-of-You. It might be fun to you but someone, somewhere is looking and waiting to be outraged and get you banged-up, okay? Better still, just sit on the sofa and watch cooking shows and the BBC news to keep-up with what they want you to know.

I’m betting that, even as I type, there’s someone ‘up there’ figuring the least troublesome way to shutdown all Blogging platforms and restrict that social media thingy.
