Linkety links

Meg found some neat old WWII era posters, like this one to the left. You ride with Hitler! I love it.

Carmen's baby is the Spiffy Baby of the Month. In case you're wondering, that's an atomic orange Corvette he's riding in. And in case you're wondering, I believe it is perfectly fine to end sentences with prepositions. And begin them with and.

Reminds me of one of my favorite Far Side cartoons:

My favorite Far Side EVER! I still quote that one. Whenever I meet someone named Larry, or see a llama.

Those aren't very good cowboys, since when do you rope a horse without a rope? Chasing llamas with your bare hands, what fools.

That's a very spiffy baby, Cahmen!

That Llama video is most entertaining. Thanks for posting it Eileen.

I too think it's perfectly fine to end sentences in prepositions.

Did you know that the species is actually called "lama glama". I think that´s pretty funny. Supposedly the name comes from when the Spanish first arrived in South America and, never having seen the animal before, asked the locals "como se llama?" and the name stuck. But no one can really back up that story.

The Imperial War Museum in London has a great collection of WWII posters. This one is my all-time favorite:

"Keep mum, she´s not so dumb!"
If you do a Google search for "Loose lips sink ships" you also get some good ones.

Kev,
I did not know that about llamas. I'm suprised they didn't end up calling them something more vulgar, like "que clase de putamadre es ese animal?"

Liked the war poster. You can't be careful around those snitchin' ladies of the night.
