I don't know this guy, but it looks like he eats well. I doubt he does manual labor.

9 From that smudge around his head it looks like he was originally wearing the hat.

10 He reminds me of the typical fat cat politician.

14 OK, I will give this guy some sympathy. He looks like a pet whose dog parents dressed him up in something silly and he looks at the camera saying "it's not my fault".

Also, the word "Burgomaster" is further evidence of my contention that English and German had drunk sex, produced Dutch, and both regret it.

Posted by: Bandersnatch at March 22, 2018 09:26 AM (fuK7c)

15 the hat is covering the burger

Posted by: votermom certified russian matryoshka bot at March 22, 2018 09:26 AM (hMwEB)

16 His friends call him "Mitch McConnell", which is sort of odd since its not a common Dutch nickname.

Louie Gohmert. He doesn't get on the MSM anymore because they've all decided they hate him, he ties them up in knots and they can't refute what he says, so he's blackballed from most shows.

I think the last time I saw him on Fox he made the "mistake" of saying, in effect, that Geraldo was a liberal idiot, and it pissed them off to hear the truth like that.

84 One thing that interested me was that there is no lace on collar or cuffs. Puritan-type? With his size, that would seem to be an anomaly. But he has the fluffy on his shoes and garters, maybe in mourning?

Anyway, for those interested in technique, I highly recommend zooming in on his face. Beautiful.

97 it was mentioned in the ONT that De Blahsio was mouthing off about this storm being "Proof of Global Warming!" That isn't just idiotic, I think people miss the real trick there - if it had been warm and sunny in NYC today, then De Blahsio would have tweeted "Always used to snow in March! This warm weather is Proof of Global Warming!!!!"

Probably the best way to tell the difference between Science and a Religion is this: Scientific theories are always falsifiable by observable evidence. Religious beliefs, however, are constructed so that they are ALWAYS confirmed by any possible evidence, no matter what it may be.

"Global Warming" is now the new liberal buzzword for "The Will of Allah". The only way to change the Will of Allah will be if we make great sacrifices and repent sincerely of our wicked western ways.

119 What I especially like is the artist didn't try to dress Burgo up, or add lots of ridiculous compositional elements to draw your eye away from the embarrassing reality. No Roman columns, ivy, horses or dogs. No muses, cupids angels or inspirational representations of Biblical events.

Nope. He was paid to paint the Burgomeister and so that's what you get, straight up and right in your eye whether you like it or not.

'Gun control' is not about guns. The phrase 'Gun Control' is clever
verbal 'sleight-of-hand' misdirection designed to obscure the fact that
what's really going on - is illegally taking away the constitutional
rights of another minority group; this time law abiding gun owners.

If
you wish to understand the left's bigoted thinking substitute the word
"Negro" for the word gun and you will see that Democrats never change,
they are just up to their old tricks.

Because the left can't have "Negro free zones" or "Jap free zones" anymore, they satisfy their bigotry with "Gun free zones".

with less shoie

Posted by: Quentin T at March 22, 2018 10:06 AM (h/uSM)


Related and unrelated: I finally saw the movie, Django Unchained.

Oh my, Quint is fond of the N word. It's a well made movie, as all of his films are, and it is "entertaining," if you watch it as a fantasy film. Which I did. One of the best parts was Tarantino himself, in the role of an Aussie. It's funny and stupid, and totally ridiculous. If you try to see that scene in particular as some sort of realistic event, you will hate it.


I've decided Tarantino is making ultra violent cartoon fantasies, and then I just enjoy them as such.

361 Bozo info from previous thread:

Marcus T:
Frank Avruch, who played Bozo the Clown from 1959 to 1970, has died.

Chi-Town Jerry:
Avruch was the Boston Bozo.

Larry Harmon was the owner of the character and he franchised it in big TV markets across the country.

Bob Bell played him here in Chicago for almost 25 years.

Anagram Nation:
[Harmon] didn't originate the character, though. Bozo was originally just a cartoon character created at Capitol Records by Alan Livingston. It was for a series of children's book/record combos.

The first live-action Bozo was Pinto Colvig, also known for being the voice of Disney's Pluto and Goofy characters.

368 The detail in this portrait is beautifully rendered. For some reason, I was drawn to the red sole and heel on the burgomaster's left shoe. Clearly a status symbol.

About the gloves: He is wearing his left glove, and holding his right glove in his gloved left hand. I have seen this in many formal portraits, and even some 19th century and early 20th century photographic portraits. Was this pose with the gloves a symbol of status or authority, or just an affectation? Maybe it's just an invitation to shake hands . . .

381 Dear 'ettes
I have an honest question what is it with the majority of 'ettes about shoes? My wife is not a shoe 'ette so this fascination that some women have with shoes is puzzles me. I have never been a shoe aficionado. I buy only enough shoes as I need to rotate during the work week, plus one pair of work/hunting boots, a pair of winter sorrels and two pairs of sneakers.

I don't get it. Especially the women at the office who wear sandals during the winter and complain that it's cold. But that's a different story.

382 In 1972-73 I worked at a TV station in the South that had a Bozo franchise. They filmed all five days in one day. Poor kids. Yes, they had a waiting list of not-yet-borns.

Bozo was franchised and played by a salesman who was typical Mad Ave salesman of the time - drunk, greedy, hated kids, hated Bozo. Anyway, that was my impression.

When at YMCA camp the summer I was 9 or 10 one of the kids in my cabin was the son of this weather guy. This was a very big deal for us all, his dad being Bozo.

The week of camp had a parents' visiting day, and I spotted the weather guy and his wife in the parking lot. I ran up and asked him, "Are you Bozo?" He replied, "Not right now I'm not," and I ran off.

Don't get it either. I currently have two pairs of shoes-a brown and blue pair. My boots are clunky looking things one might wear on a farm, I expect, but I think some women think they add very much to an ensemble and can look very sexy depending on what you wear.

Nah, you're a girl. Shoes are one of the areas that prove the differences between guys and girls.

A girl will buy $40 shoes that are stylish, but because it's fashion she needs thirty pairs. A guy will buy $200 shoes, but one pair, and he'll wear them for twenty years and occasionally get half soles and heels replaces.

I lived over Drago's Shoe Repair as a kid in NYC. Was always hanging around the shop and wanted to be a cobbler when I grew up (until 3rd grade, when I wanted to be a nun ) Always asked him a gazillion questions and if he would give me a job. He never answered me---but never threw me out either. Found out years later he didn't speak any English.

461 For those interested from Wiki and Soledad O'Brien's earpiece...

The War of the Reunions (1683-84) was a short conflict between France and Spain and its allies. It was fueled by the long-running desire of Louis XIV to conquer new lands, many of them comprising part of the Spanish Netherlands, along France's northern and eastern borders. The war was, in some sense, a continuation of the territorial and dynastic aims of Louis XIV as manifested in the War of Devolution and the Franco-Dutch War.

Yep. My son got out the snow blower and did our driveway, the elderly folks' next door, and the one across the street where the guy is in the hospital. We do occasionally have those 2' snowfalls, but only about once every 5 - 10 years. I love them. I love how quiet it is and how no one has to go anywhere.

How bad is this bill? I predict the Dem's will vote unanimously for the bill while the only no's will be from the few fiscal hawks.

They totally rolled Trump. (not that Trump is fiscal hawk, he's not. It's just that he got crumbs for the wall...and Schumer got his tunnel.)

589 That would be a full Windsor knot. You can get by with a half Windsor for more casual settings and for certain types of ties.


I have gone back and forth with full Windsor, half Windsor, and four in hand (which is where I am these days). So I have decreed that the knot per se is not canon.

You can get a dimple in any of them. The dimple and the silk are canon.

S. E. Cupp said that. "When I wear shoes, I am speaking the language of 'shoe' to other women".

Yeah, that's what I was thinking, go to visit Phoenix or LA. Even the people who still go to church feel ok wearing cut off jeans and t-shirts half the time. I remember even 20 years ago, going to one of the suburbs of LA and being surprised that it was no big thing for girls to wear bikinis and sandals to go shopping at the grocery store.

627 I wear ties less and less. I am self employed and can wear what I want. It depends on the customer that I am meeting with. But when I do wear them now I remember how much I hate wearing them! Usually if I have to dress up a sport coat with a dress shirt and slacks are just fine. Ties now are usually for weddings and funerals. I have plenty in stock but I never know what the current trend is, super wide, in between or the ugly skinny ties.

630 Ties were always an incredibly stupid piece of ornamentation. They evolved from cravats, which made a kind of sense if you lived in northern Europe during the winter and had no central heating.

but for anyone living in a temperate region post-little ice age, they're an idiotic affectation. Makes as much sense as a T-Shirt with a tie printed on the front.

631 "If you don't have to wear a tie every day, and you're not retired, you've failed in your choice of careers."

A tie (or any kind of dress code, for that matter) means that you're in a position where other people get to decide what clothes you wear.

In other words, you're somebody's bitch.

It's right there in your own words. "HAVE to wear a tie".
