I would like to see it added to the Thanksgiving day parade in NYC so spectators can point and laugh as it goes by for many years to come. Oh, and change the route so it goes by Drumpf Towet.

Fizzy_Pop: Meh.... maybe an unpopular opinion here, but I always hated that balloon. Seems like a lot of effort went into it for nothing. You can't insult people who live in an alternate reality. Just my two cents. He deserves far worse than to be remembered by a cutesy balloon caricature, and the museum space deserves better too.


I kind of agree but I think the main point was just getting under that extremely thin skin. He apparently HATED it and it just emphasized how much the world sentiment was totally against him. Supposedly he repeatedly asked for it to be shot down. There are two incidents in which the cultists have obliged with knife attacks

From all accounts, being called a baby is the worst insult ever.

Prolly cuz he's heard it so often.

Saw the blimp and the protests in London on vacation.  It also turned up in Scotland in our second leg.  Somewhat disappoint it didn't turn up in Dublin on our last leg, but overall, were very impressed with our friends across the pond.

jesus christ what the fark

hey everyone, remember when our stupid stupid system of government erratically managed to put a fascist in power, and then precluded us from removing him, then our only recourse was to weakly make fun of him because he was farking weird looking and his rise to power and continued support was completely inexplicable?

Here's a little python script to count down.  No indentation needed so it should copypasta okay (unless fark figures out some novel way to screw things up):


#!/usr/bin/python
import sys, time
o = sys.stdout
t = 1611162000 - time.time()
if t <= 0: sys.exit(1)
n,t = divmod(t, 3600)
o.write('%dh ' % n)
o.write('%dm %ds\n' % divmod(t, 60))

Never work. Upon its first appearance in Murica, the cops will pull it down and destroy it.

UltimaCS: Didn't the Trumpers get all indignant and try to commission one of some British politician? Then they found out you can't get 2-day Prime delivery on something like that. Did anything ever come of that?


They were selling the bunkie ones at rallies. Anything for a buck. I don't know if it was Larry, Darryl or Darryl.
