And, Lo, I say unto you - watch it or else! I was tickled by this story from The Mail which reports on a gang of thieves who had just robbed a church and were trying to make a high speed get away chased by the cops. Suddenly, a bolt of lightning whistled down from the heavens, hit their car and - KA-BOOM! - their car blew up and suddenly all the robbers were, in Pythonese, 'ex-robbers'. Too, too, delicious!
God, Arkansas is boring! Well, I know its history is a tad, er, lively but these days it really is the boring-snoring State of the Union! Now, before my e-pal, JK, launches a drone strike - well, it would have to be a 'drone' because that's part of being 'Arkie' - let me say that I like boring, it is much to be preferred to exciting which I do not care for. However, it's jolly unfair of Arkansas not to go into panic mode at a scary story issued by "the Trust for America's Health and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation" which states very clearly that, in the paraphrased words of the immortal Pte. Frazer, Arkies are all doomed! It's all to do with climate change and the disgraceful fact that the likes of JK and his fellow Arkies have wilfully ignored all the warning signs. Mind you, Sierra Rayne at The American Thinker does point out:
Here is what Arkansas should put on their climate change and disease radar: since records began in 1895, there has been no significant trend [my emphasis] in the state's average temperature, maximum temperature, minimum temperature, precipitation, cooling degree days, heating degree days, Palmer Drought Severity Index (PDSI), Palmer Hydrological Drought Index (PHDI), Palmer Modified Drought Index (PMDI), or the ominously named "Palmer Z-Index." This constitutes all climate indicators in the NOAA National Climatic Center Database.
See what I mean about being boring?!
And also they're full of chicken shit in Arkansas: No, no, that's not my opinion, it's all in the IJReview which has published a map purporting to show the very best of each State of the Union, and the very worst:
As you can see, the feature for which Arkansas stands out above the rest is that it possesses the "Most poultry waste". Alas, the feature chosen as the best of Arkansas is that it has the "First US National River". I'm not quite sure what is meant by a "National River" but I have a sneaking suspicion that it is very, very, boring! And yes, 'Whitewall', I intended to check on North Carolina but in my appalling British ignorance I'm not absolutey sure where it is!
UKIP councillor expelled: Oh no, not another one - and why I am not surprised?! With all due deference to several of my UKIP-loving readers I have hinted before that UKIP would likely implode when faced with the relentless pressures of a forthcoming general election. Most professional politicians quickly master the essential art of saying as little as possibe and taking as long as possible to say it! The Telegraph does not know exactly what this particular UKIP lady said but it was enough to get her booted out on the spot. Anyway, now we can all look forward to the first signs of a policy split between the highly intelligent and knowledgeable Douglas Carswell and the 'Arfer Daley' of British politics, Nigel Farage!
No more rumbles today
