Speaking of Man of the Year, I just now noticed your new profile describing you only as a tuber fruit. That led me straight to this:

Baldrick's recipe for Turnip Surprise: "the surprise is : there's nothing in it except the turnip"

I've questioned the turnip on a number of occasions, and been stonewalled every time.

Do you actually think the picture from serbia is funny?? Because I thought it was so funny I forgot to laugh.

S'Mat said...

Yes, I do find it funny. Perhaps for slightly different reasons than you though.. I find it funny to laugh at our preconceived notions, in this case, preset values of what constitutes 'mysogynism': The cage is not for women, it is for hay. In fact I believe this this to most likely be a gallant act bestowed by the local farmer onto a pair of town-dwelling elderly ladies so's they don't have to be in pain later, you know from bunions or sciatica or by being beaten by their husband for being tardy. It just so happened that the only place he had to offer is in a cage and the nature of the overall presentation changed the meaning of the picture... Now please ask yourself, do you really think that it is common practice in Serbia to transport women in cages?

All this is conjecture of course, and beside the point, as all you have really accomplished here is a projected interpretation of what you imagine to be my values onto me. It tells me more about you (whoever you are) than it tells about me.
