I want to point out that he looked ridiculous there, but a million times more healthy than he does now.

This one was good, but taking government money wins by far.

I would add living in an RV.

Drugs. Crack/Cocaine.

'Dive' bars. The rich and well known would be 'caught dead' in those places.

But now it's hip to drink next to the old homeless guy who's been patronizing the place for decades. Then they try to recreate a dive bar. Spend big bucks trying get that old sleazy look to make their bar look old. Like fake patina walls and doors. The drink prices aren't very vintage tho.

I always love that pic.  Her Majesty just looks like, "I cannot be-lieve this buffoon is a fellow Head of State and I'm appalled my dumbass government made me invite him."

I keep daydreaming about Trump on the business end of a Launer handbag upside his head.

That's what his 'forward lean' thing is meant to look like from the front.  It doesn't look QUITE as ridiculous as when you see it from the side

I was going to object to this but remembered that rich folks eat pâté and poor folks eat braunschweiger.

"decades"? We should be so lucky. A lot of Fark threads come around semi-weekly.

The only example I could come up  with -  as a Catholic, I live walking distance to two Catholic Churches One for the poor (Our Lady of  Sorrows) and for the "Richer" (Our Lady of Grace) The irony of the names...

thinking covering everything in gold gives you status

spend all your money on watches, some chains and grillz and you're trash

cover everything in your penthouse including the toilet in gold, and you're classy

nah, trump is trashy too, nevermind
