Welcome, visitor!


“The Slings and Arrows of Outrageous Fortune*”

We were bereft early in the morning of November 9th, 2016 as we are sure a lot of you were.  And most of you know the reasons by now but with the publication of ‘What Happened’ we now know the culprits.  First off and we never would have guessed this one, former President Barak Obama, The Smartest Man Whoever Was or Will Be President of the United States.  Then it was J. Edgar Comey no big news there.  Then it was The Russians and Putin of course.  Then it was Fake News, although we thought that was The Donald Himself’s line.  Then it was The New York Times who’d a thunk that?  Then there was Bernie Sanders, Jill Stein and last but not least, it was you.  You, the American people you the Deplorables.  You went and voted for the other guy.  Now if it hadn’t been for all of that, guess who’d be President right now?  Shame on you!  Chalk this one up to “the proud man’s (or in this case woman’s) contumely”*.

And this model Marisa Papen

as you can see was posing nude and using the Egyptian Pyramids as a backdrop, when she was interrupted by Egyptian authorities.  The authorities were horrified and told her she couldn’t do this at the Pyramids.  She in turn explained that she does this all over the world.  That she was doing it with the highest respect for Egyptian culture and art and her pictures were going to be art as well.   When she refused to stop, they arrested her.  Then they strip searched her.  But there is sort of a happy ending here, as the authorities let her go with a warning.  Our guess is, the strip search turned up nothing.  Chalk this one up to “the law’s delay”*.

And Anthony “Little Anthony” Weiner has reared his ugly head again.  Pun intended.  It seems his lawyers in a last ditch effort to keep him out of prison have sent a memorandum to his Judge before sentencing.  In it they claim that Anthony Little Anthony is “sick”.  Really?  And, that he was in a “self-destructive spiral” when he kept sexting to a 13 year girl, complete with nasty pictures of himself.   Somehow the lawyers proclaim that the 13 year old was in control and Anthony” Little Anthony” wasn’t, the poor baby.  But here’s something for Anthony “Little Anthony” Weiner to ponder.  If it hadn’t a’ been for President Obama, J. Edgar Comey, The Russians and Putin of course, Fake news, the New York Times, Bernie Sanders, Jill Stein, that guy with the big hairdo and you the American people, you Deplorables, guess who would be President right now?  And, guess who might not even have faced prosecution or even if he had, might now be looking at a suspended sentence, if not an out and out pardon?  Can we say here that it was just, “not to be”?

    Strip search? What was left to strip — her necklace?

    Anyway, I must admit the photo caught my immediate attention — so much so that I at first thought Ricardo had started posting here again….but then I realized that if he had, the pix wouldn’t be pixilated (and male viewers would be). Still, not bad for a family channel!

    Muse, sometimes things are so funny on their own that we can do little to add or detreact. I saw the picture in the NY Post but they won’t copy so I got it off some website and it was already pixeled so we are still a family channel. Although we do feel as if we skated to edge with this one.

  • Don,

    Ah yes, contumely, a word I believe we need to revive these days! And how did I ever miss Papen’s art and “revelation”? Well, again, that’s why I come here. LOL

    With all the exasperation and anger being thrown about every few minutes it does seem that contumely should be back in the common lexicon once again.

    And yes we go everywhere. We’re like what the Pinkertons used to be.
