Sunday Reads: Marred Lago

The above cartoon from Ward Sutton, h/t Dak:

That last cartoon is a little confusing to me, because Gandalf was saying that to the bad dude… the cartoonist is usually left leaning. Maybe I’m just reading too much into it.

Thank you to BB for sending me this link:, she knows my fondness for the word fuck:

I fucking love it! We will stick with Covid for a bit…

Now for some non-newsy tweets.

I absolutely love Divine…hear are a few clips from some of her movies:

I will finish this off with a couple more videos…first from Are you being served?

Here is a good Tarot spread for the new year:

This is an open thread…

    I hope those embedded videos play for you, they are awkwardly situated in the post…

    If I find anything interesting, I will link it…otherwise have a fucking kick ass day.

      For him to make his announcement a few days before Christmas and on Fox News was absolutely appalling. He seemed almost gleeful. He’s a cruel, sadistic, soulless shell of a human being.

        I consider him an utter scumbag, and I was surprised he was such an utter scumbag!

          I hope the DOJ goes after Manchin’s daughter Heather and his wife Gayle over corrupt practices at Mylan Pharmaceuticals. Throw the book at the whole POS family. No reason not to at this point.

    LOL Thanks for the great toons and Divine pieces. I actually still have my Odorama card, can you believe. I’ve saved playbills and theatre tickets for decades. Sadly stopped going after Parasite early in 2020.

    Happy Christmas week errbody!

    Elizabeth Warren has tested positive for Covid after being fully vaxxed and boostered. She says she is experiencing mild symptoms.

    Somehow I can’t muster appreciation or liking for a man in lipstick wearing dresses who makes jokes about rape and women’s bodies. Wonder why? Could it be that I don’t care for womanface, wherein men (or brainwashed women) wear stereotyped clothes and makeup and act like dumb sexpot women? Kinda like how I don’t care for blackface, wherein White men or women insult Blacks by wearing stereotyped clothes and dark makeup and act like dumb lazy Blacks. Hmmm.

      Yup. Drag is punching down.

      In a world where too many people still think femininity=female, you cannot mock femininity without mocking actual women. Plus why mock femininity? If it’s really about taking the piss out of gender, why mock the people on the bottom. Make fun of masculinity/men. Mocking women does nothing to change or challenge the current system. Hell, making fun of women IS the current system.

      Making fun of oppressed people for the behaviors that are forced on them or that they developed to cope/live/deal with that oppression isn’t funny…it’s a shitty thing to do.

      • quixote says:

        Yeah. The writers on this here blog understand drag in a way that I don’t, so I wasn’t going to say anything. But now that you both have put it so clearly, I want to second you. I just scroll past all that stereotyping as fast as I can. I get way too much of it in the rest of the world.
