Or so this Chap heard, from someone who does not live at the base of a west-facing mountain. He understands there are, oh, oodles of photographs from all one’s friends, who are dying to share them.
And yet, as this Guardian feature delicately points out, photographic enthusiasm may be little substitute for skill. Especially when the subject is, as here, just a little tricky and elusive… Still, better luck next time, what?
And a little live(?) action…
Of course there’s always that one who just won’t follow the safety card…
For him and all others goose-stepping to that same drummer, the Chaps offer a few words from Talking Heads.
“No sense of harmony, no sense of time…” How prescient.
“Steve Bannon’s next moves will be all about the billionaire Mercer family… Bob Mercer and Steve Bannon had a five hour meeting Wednesday to plot out next steps, said a source with knowledge of the meeting.”
“Bannon has felt liberated since it became clear he was being pushed out, according to friends. He’s told associates he has a “killing machine” in Breitbart News, and it’s possible he returns to lead their editorial operation.”
“A source familiar with Breitbart’s operations told me they would go “thermonuclear” against “globalists”that Bannon and his friends believe are ruining the Trump administration, and by extension, America.”
“Watch for Breitbart’s Washington Editor Matt Boyle to be a central figure in this war — which has already begun — against White House officials like HR McMaster, Dina Powell, Gary Cohn, and Jared and Ivanka.”
This Chap has long been looking to make his fortune.
.. well, pension, now he thinks about it.
… and one of the latest whiz-bang schemes centered around all those old grooved circular things most of us have cluttering the closets. Just what do you do with those things, when you’d love to hear them but when even CDs are now a little, well, passe?
… for the mistaken impression that the Brits are always unfailingly polite and eschew indulgent pungency. The Chaps being in the nature of proper English Chaps, and all that, and aware of our status as guests in another country, do tend to be fairly polite and circumspect regarding prominent characters in U.S. life.
Until now, that is, when we finally have the opportunity to indulge in some of the wonderful phrases the Brits — and our less-reserved Northern neighbors — reserve for well-deserved insults. And what better target than this one?
