Sunday funnies

That's using your, er, head.

Gotta remember to watch your back...

Should Canadian drivers be banned in the U.S.? (H/T: Captain Heinrichs)

Hotel employees who go the extra mile to fulfill stupid customer requests.

Help keep those extra pounds off with these unique dining utensils from Paco Enterprises' home products division...

(From Powerline's "The Week in Pictures")

I'd be in favor of blocking Canadian drivers.
When I lived in the northeast I had to deal with Quebec drivers, who think the left lane is the slow lane.

Now, I'm in AZ where Canadians come to avoid winter, they think all lanes are the slow lane.
Of course, many of the snow birds are from Minnesota and Wisconsin and such, but at least keeping the Canadians out would thin the herd.

That article is especially timely considering it's almost sno-bird season.

"Should Canadian drivers be banned in the U.S.?"

I grew up near the Canadian border in Washington State, and visit there often. Satire or not, I assure you that the answer amongst many people living just south south of the 49th parallel is "HELL YES!!!!"

That guy making all the weird hotel requests doesn't know the last laugh is on him because the housekeeping is making him sleep on the last guest's unchanged sheets.

The way Americans and Canadians are is similar to the way Australians and New Zealanders are. They see us as the big regional bully, who they nonetheless rely on. New Zealand's progressives came up with a policy of not allowing any nuclear-armed ship to dock, supposedly but in effect it meant no US military. It seems to me that the US in future is entitled to expect more commitment from its allies, although Australia has this tricky "friendship" with China through trade. The alternate view is that the world shouldn't be too polarised because a WWI type situation can too easily fall into place.

That "anonymous" is me forgetting to sign. Hey I just found an example of the cultural cluelessness of American progressives. Apparently, in "fact checking" Trump, they find "no evidence" that Muslims fear dying "contaminated" with pig fat or blood. This is utterly bizarre. Where were these "fact checkers" looking?

Not only was the Indian Mutiny of 1857 supposed to have begun because of cartridge cases greased with pig fat, but it is known over centuries of Indian history that Muslims feared dying by pork, while Hindus feared dying by beef (sacred cow). They both used these fears against opposing armies in battles and I have read centuries old accounts explicitly about Muslim fear of even the presence of pigs while dying, making them yell "haraam!" as their final words. These US liberal "fact checkers" are fantasists, dangerous ones.
