Not to mention the glass of their helmets would have shattered from expansion when facing the sun, gold or no gold!

I just love this picture caption by "Inquietologo", a great Italian blogger (and September Clues diffuser) :

https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid ... =3&theater

(my best translation) :

- "We have killed Bin Laden."
- "Woah! Do you have a picture that proves it?"
- "No - but we have a picture of us looking at the picture."
- "Conclusive."

:P

ps: ( btw, does Hillary look like she's going " OMG! What have we done?!" )

Not to be a prude, but this 'joke' would not translate well with any thinking person in America. In 'the colonies', African Americans have been compared to apes in order to demean and de-person them for hundreds of years. That's all I will say about it. I don't accuse you of anything brianv. I don't even want to imply an accusation. It's just a compulsion for me to express that I am unnerved by this humor.

Sorry if my taking offense is culturally weird or itself offensive or a sign of being programmed in a particular way.

In America, this would be conceived as a highly racist image, whatever its original intentions.

When I did one with Bush was it considered racist? America? What's that?

I feel more sorry for the chimpanzee, as I already expressed, comparing him to a clown!

"African American" now theres a joke label if ever there was one. Colour is only a perception!

If that place you live is racist, not my problem!

Ps: Want to see something more offensive? Maybe I just should have stuck an asshole on his head.

edit: Poogle images "asshole". Look what pops up on the first row!

No offence to assholes everywhere on the planet I'm sure!

No one said dyslexia or dyscalculia makes anyone “stupid”. But making unsubstantiated claims about broadcast times because you evidently can’t tell time, and expecting people to accept random hearsay as evidence, is what proves you must be either stupid or a deliberate troll disinfo artist. :rolleyes:

Citing a Hollywood movie script as if it had any relevance is also stupid. :wacko:

I take it that “retired” is your euphemism for unemployable on government benefits? :P
not on goverment benefits bud or a wages slave and doing nicely :) not a troll either have a read of behold a pale horse if you think it was a hollywood script but as i say ask around or is that too much trouble maat yip the truth will set you free :rolleyes: too you
