There's a "joke" meme going viral on Twatter at the moment.

Here's my Arctic alter ego's contribution:

Waves hitting Barrow shore are only of marginal interest to the melting season, please do not take this any further in this thread. The ice cares about the waves near the ice, obviously, not about the surf.
So you contend the ice is not empathetic.  I hate to think Arctic ice has anything in common with our 'The Donald'.  But I'll accept this is a topic for elsewhere, maybe just in my mind.

Both are cold hearted, but the ice is at least working on it.

Whatever happened to Covid jokes?

Perhaps OT, because it is a serious QM101 video: Quantum decoherence and Donald Trump.



(If you can't stand it, imagine Evelyn Hamann for a few moments or recite the name of a certain place on the island of Anglesey in Wales.)

The ice inn

I’d love to pay a visit while we still can
After a thousand steps on the ice, it cracked.
The Man looked down at the infinite blue of the sea.
On the horizon, standing still, the polar bear had just scented his next meal.

The Lincoln Project is a group of very prominent Republicans (and now, ex-Republicans) who have been horrified by what Hair Furor has done to their party and to the country.  Their work is exceptionally pointed and biting.  Very effective, in my opinion--far more effective than what Biden's campaign has produced.

Other examples are a simple YouTube search away.

More humorous and satirical are works by thejuicemedia:


They usually focus on Australia, but American fans were apparently asking for their inimitable contribution.

I have no idea. Found it on Facebook. Usually I know my sources...

The "honest govt" video is so spot on, it's almost not funny. Here are some numbers:

This is for Germans. On an anti Corona demo in Berlin some Hare Krishna chants were heard. I love the Nazi swastika reforged as a "checked" sign.

A Dog Pissing at the Edge of a Path wins oddest book title of the year

Anthropological study of metaphor takes 2020 Diagram prize, pulling ahead of Introducing the Medieval Ass in public vote

"A Dog Pissing at the Edge of a Path" has beaten Introducing the Medieval Ass to win the Diagram prize for oddest book title of the year.

Both books are academic studies, with the winning title by University of Alberta anthropologist Gregory Forth. It sees Forth look at how the Nage, an indigenous people primarily living on the islands of Flores and Timor, understand metaphor, and use their knowledge of animals to shape specific expressions. The title itself is an idiom for someone who begins a task but is then distracted by other matters.

Runner-up "Introducing the Medieval Ass", sees the University of Melbourne’s medieval historian Kathryn L Smithies explore “the ass’s enormous socio-economic and cultural significance in the middle ages”. Other contenders included Classical Antiquity in Heavy Metal Music, Lawnmowers: An Illustrated History and The Slaughter of Farmed Animals: Practical Ways of Enhancing Animal Welfare.

The prize, run by the Bookseller magazine, was first established in 1978 to reward the year’s strangest book title.

“I thought it would be a closer race, but A Dog Pissing is practically a perfect Venn diagram of an ideal winner,” said Tom Tivnan, the prize coordinator and managing editor of the Bookseller. He said it combined “the three most fecund Diagram prize territories: university presses (a tradition dating back to the first champ, 1978’s University of Tokyo-published Proceedings of the Second International Workshop on Nude Mice); animals (like 2012’s Goblinproofing One’s Chicken Coop or 2003’s The Big Book of Lesbian Horse Stories); and bodily functions (such as 2013’s How to Poo on a Date and 2011’s Cooking with Poo).”

Thanks for the laugh, especially the list of previous winners at the end!

The medieval ass was not quite what i expected but i should have known (even Chaucer had some).
