Drizzly Sunday salutations from Happy Larryville, GN.

My goodness…what an utterly terrifying thread GIF!

Hope the Lone Star State detachment are all well; I feel your pain cold.

A blessed Sabbath, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning Clan McFatwaK!

It is a beautiful, clear, crisp morning and our Ear Leader has spoken more about Nelson Mandela than about Pearl Harbor.

Yeah, he’s nothing if not self-serving.

Last week, my employer held their annual employee awards ceremony. Kind of awkward for me, yet interesting, as I havent been an employee for over 20 years. Those that won all seemed to be deserving of the plaque and money they got, so no complaints there. What was funny, and somewhat awkward, were some of the speeches from the department heads as they handed out the awards.

In one case, one winner was praised as always being the first to “rip off her kimono and get down to business” when a lot of work needed doing. In another case, a female veepee was telling us how cold it was outside and I think wanted to simulate shivering, but instead of crossing her arms and mugging it up, she grabbed both her boobs. I overlooked it, not caring much one way or the other about Nelson Mandela, but the opening speech apparently compared the business to the struggles in South Africa and the greatness achieved by Mandela--that didnt sit well with some people.

So it goes.

How would he insert himself into Pearl Harbor? What use is it to him?

Mac --

I was mostly being sarcastic.

But if he could have related it to himself in even the most tenuous manner, I think he’d have done so. Particularly having repeatedly invoked FDR’s name and lived in HI as a yout’.

“…my administration was suddenly and deliberately attacked by those rascally, evil Republicans.”

Sven --

That did sound like slightly odd awards ceremony considering the hyper-sensitivity of today’s corporate environment.

Aha!

And I bought it hook, line and sinker; guess my naughtyometer needs to be re-calibrated.

I suspect your naughtyometer sets a standard.

The usefulness of which is debatable. 😉

This “up” escalator is apparently at the Tel Aviv City Hall; hee! (Click for larger image.)
