Just for Fun

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

Such abuse should not go unpunished.

Rename Fifth Avenue in front of Trump Tower: "President Barack H. Obama Avenue"
To be delivered to New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, New York City Council


"Any addresses on that stretch of Fifth Avenue should be changed accordingly."

Some of these are probably fake, and others just jokes, but some are real and they're all funny.

:lol: Thanks. I see this all the time among xenophobes. Gotta wonder whether they're idiots or Russian trolls. This one must just be an idiot.

That said:
This is classic southern brains, coupled with southern hospitality. One Sticker says “SPEAK ENGLISH OR GET THE F***K OUT” the other mis-spells the word “but.” Maybe it’s you who should be learning English there buddy.
:roll: "Your" should also be "You're", "Sticker" should not be capitalized and there's no hyphen in "misspells". Chain irony is a rare and beautiful thing. The writer even criticizes an incorrect "your" later:

Image

:lol:

More chain irony:
Jane Austen, like Shexpere (intentional, multiple spellings discussed above), is known as one of the best writers in history. And her book here is full of mistakes. Actually, a bunch of famous authors is (a bunch ... is" :D ) known for making childish errors in their most famous pieces of work, including Ernest Hemingway, who told his editor that correcting his spelling was his job.

Hemingway also spelled moving as “moveing.” Agatha Christia misspelled (no hyphen this time :clap: ) the name of one of her own characters, writing Colonel Cadbury as “Colonel Carbery.”
Guess the writer doesn't have a competent editor.

Oh, c'mon now:
An Australian cookbook caused outrage in 2010 when a recipe substituted the word “pepper” for “people” in its instructions. The typo read “salt and freshly ground black people,” leading many people to understandably complain about the mistake.

Some felt that it was an innocent error, but others accused the publisher of racism, which prompted them to destroy all the copies they had in their warehouse.
No, it substituted the word “people” for “pepper”, or “pepper” with “people”. I'm guessing that there must be a few more. I looked at all pics, but did not read all captions.

Boris Johnson has adopted a dog and people are suggesting hilariously bleak names
Can’t decide.

Either ‘Rex’ or ‘Do Your Fucking Jobs And Hold This Shambolic Government To Account Instead Of Being Complicit In Their Distraction Techniques’.
Doggy McDogface
'I'm with stupid'
:lol:
Larry the cat even got involved with a poll.
Larry the Cat, Esq.
@Number10cat

What should Johnson call his new dog?
22% Brex
30% Distraction the PR Hound
18% Donald
30% Not Larry
Will the dog bark aggressively at non-whites?
hello darkness my old friend

If there is one thing we can agree on in this nation right now it's that we must save this poor dog
Lots more at the link.
