Silly answers

I am going to ask you to imagine each of the following words as one might use them in a sentence. Then I’ll give you my silly answers. Ready?

  1. Infantile
  2. Toy Story
  3. Promiscuous
  4. Blacklisted

Infantile. If you call me an infant, I’ll behave like one.

Toy Story. Seeing the mountain of Christmas toys, Tory got in front for a photo-op.

Promiscuous. If you are our escort, pro miss, queue us.

Blacklisted. Here are a number of notable things which Conrad Black listed as achievements:

  • Serving jail time in the USA.
  • Dumping his Canadian citizenship to become a British peer.
  • Being stripped of his Order of Canada
  • Claiming Trump the most successful US POTUS since Regan
  • Raiding the Dominion Stores pension and getting to keep half of it.

For those of you with short memories, here’s a quote from the above hotlink:

Black stripped a $56 million surplus from the Dominion Stores employees’ pension fund but lost a court challenge and gave roughly half of it back.

Apartheid, and Israel

Israel has often been accused of apartheid in its dealings with the Palestinians. However, they usually play the Holocaust card and then enlist support from the United States of America.

Trump’s intent to move the US embassy to Palestine has been greeted by Netanyahu as a harbinger of peace. This from the creator of hundreds of settlements, in East Palestine.

Emboldened by America’s attacks on Iran, support for anti-Palestinian moves, and aggressive to take advantage, Israel has decided to

drive African migrants out of Israel. You can read details here.

Apartheid? No no. Not in Israel.

What’s in a Name: part II

Coleman’s mustard bears the label “Coleman’s of Norwich.”

Here you will find out that, that label will now be false, but will continue to be used.

I’ll bet my favourite Worcestershire Sauce isn’t made in Worcestershire. It isn’t, the company (Lea and Perrins) makes it in the USA in a thicker version. That’s the version I am familiar with. But they don’t lie about it, or do they?

Back to Coleman’s. Jobs in a loyal village will be lost. Profit will be chased elsewhere. But the ‘of Norwich’ will remain. I guess truth in advertising isn’t enforced in the UK either.
