"Napoleon has humbugged me, by God!" Duke of Wellington, just before Waterloo.
The story down below about the sniper was, unfortunately, a hoax. No fault of my friend that sent it, it's the responsibility of the blogger to verify things like that. I tried to cross index some of the names in the story this evening, and lo! Turns out the whole story is a fake from a "fake news" web site that has caught on and been passed around the net by people who thought it was legitimate. I'm sorry it wasn't, because I found it very motivating. Also because it caused the Wing Nuts to go absolutely berserk. Even my Trollchin sent me a comment saying that the sniper was a murderer for shooting the home invaders, and that it should have been a matter for the courts to handle, but snipers can't resist firing their weapons. I s**t you not. I laughed until I almost choked, and even though the story turned out to be fake, I have that to cherish.
As I told CC, I should probably commit seppuku to apologize. I do have the two swords that are necessary, bought them in Japan when I was stationed there. You never know when you might have to save face by some nonchalant belly slitting. But, I don't have a second to finish the ceremony, and somebody has to feed the animals and take care of the place while my wife isn't here.
Since it's a day for pranks, here are some really funny ones. There's a whole series of these, but I think this one is the best.
I don't usually put music on the blog, but as I was working on this late tonight (it's almost midnight) I was listening to some songs I really like from the past.
Here's a favorite of mine. Annie Lennox was such a pretty woman in 1992, and this song struck a chord with me back then. Still like it.
And from the Post Apocalyptic series, Jericho, in 2006, here's another one I liked.
