    Me like. Tune is “V”, words are 1A.
    Put that on a car sticker, you KNOW people will automatically know the tune.

      Thank you for the “Blogger’s” link.
      This date (variable now) has lost many of its meaning. I still go for the 30th…Suthran as I am.

    Nice pick ax Zed. What’s going in the hole…

    • ExNuke

      Not “what”, Who and when.

    • GWB

      I just bought me a new pick mattock the other day. I hope I’m only using it to dig pipe and wire ditches and postholes, but it has its uses outside that niche.

  • Fox2!

    Isn’t that derived from the soi dissant “Gunpowder Plot”.

      My son & I were talking about Elon Musk. My son mentioned Musk’s hyperloop tunnel concept as an example of how genius doesn’t always make sense. My son wondered rhetorically what people might put into tunnels which passed through the centre of major world cities. I said gunpowder. He “got” it.

    “If you ever feel so sad
    And the whole world is driving you mad
    Remember, remember today
    Don’t feel sorry about the way it’s gone
    Don’t you worry about what you’ve done
    Remember, remember the Fifth of November”

    – Lennon (from “Remember”)

    Posted a comment to the question raised about Skye being mad at Jo in yesterday’s comments. Another observation on yesterday’s comments concerns Woad, which I’m putting here…

    It is too bad that Woad only comes in Blue. We need a similar tincture substance in RED.

    What was Henry Bowman’s words…. ( after the first one, the rest are free ).
    It they make you a criminal, be all the criminal you can be.

    The fun part is that the movie reversed the roles of those involved

    guy fawkes was determined to blow up Parliament at the time the King was addressing it, in hopes of overthrowing the government to reinstall a catholic one

    fawkes was given the job of ‘guarding’ the barrels of gunpowder and was caught after an anonymous tip was delivered to the authorities

    Much in the same way fake votes were thrown in to overthrow the government the people really voted for.

    Methinks the rest of the poem should be remembered as well and the appropriate substitutions made for the players… ‘pope’ pelosi fits well enough 😉

    We can only hope an ‘anonymous tip’ reveals where the barrels of pre-filled votes came from, too many people were involved in this for someone not to either have a fit of conscience or be made a ‘better offer’ like immunity from prosecution
    It’s not going to be C-S-I that breaks this open.
    As in so many cases, it’s going to be R-A-T

    Remember, remember!
    The fifth of November,
    The Gunpowder treason and plot;
    I know of no reason
    Why the Gunpowder treason
    Should ever be forgot!
    Guy Fawkes and his companions
    Did the scheme contrive,
    To blow the King and Parliament
    All up alive.
    Threescore barrels, laid below,
    To prove old England’s overthrow.
    But, by God’s providence, him they catch,
    With a dark lantern, lighting a match!
    A stick and a stake
    For King James’s sake!
    If you won’t give me one,
    I’ll take two,
    The better for me,
    And the worse for you.
    A rope, a rope, to hang the Pope,
    A penn’orth of cheese to choke him,
    A pint of beer to wash it down,
    And a jolly good fire to burn him.
    Holloa, boys! holloa, boys! make the bells ring!
    Holloa, boys! holloa boys! God save the King!
    Hip, hip, hooor-r-r-ray!

    Remember … remember the crime of November …

  • So yesterday I said how amazingly our host catches the face and the force of real people so well in his ‘toons, and how Zed is modeled on the artist himself?

    Well, in today’s installment the force is there, in the pick and in the pen, so obvious.
    The face too but maybe with a wisp or two less hair around it.

    Neck down though? What was it somebody said? C’mon man! 😉

    • Zed ain’t me, ya know.

      • Oh, he is. They, all of them, are you my Brother…
        And to a lesser degree all of them are all of us.
        Amazing. Thank you.

        • Kafiroon

          Admit it JTC, Zed in today’s panel is how we see ourselves.
          Just keep your eyes closed around mirrors.

          • It’s all virtual now K-Man; just call it in. Works for Chris…
            I mean that face and that “force” are as real as it gets.

            But the pick and the pen? Like all of the 2-D world, it is what we want it and will it to be. Even if it’s only in our heads, that’s where everything worthwhile begins, and sometimes ends.

          • Kafiroon

            So I agree but my body is still working in a physical to my senses world (Mowed lawn=aching back). My brain though, goes in places that would get me banned/locked up depending on what “others” think of my “thought crimes” But who knows, what I think may some day require action. And You know I look like Zed in this.

            I think Larry Miller said it best: “If women knew what we are really thinking they would never stop slapping us.”

  • Swansonic

    My heartfelt thanks and prayers to all of those who gave the ultimate sacrifice to protect freedom in this world. And to their family and friends as well.

    Courage and strength to all of us still fighting for freedom – the battle is hard and unending but always worth fighting.

      Amen
