moothemagiccow: 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?


hmmm... not ringing any bells...

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.

Can it live on in the British Museum?  Like, next to the Rosetta Stone or something?

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?

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))

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.


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

Prolly cuz he's heard it so often.

I remember when it was first introduced as a blimp and they got aviation permits and all sorts of crazy stuff around it, only for it to be a balloon that was tiny compared to what was suggested.
