back for a brand new season of laffs and guffaws. the three stooges reborn. thank you.

Seeing this in today’s paper , I wondered what some really goofy looking photos of Cameron and Obama might look like alongside the president of France, shown here.  The Three Stooges, circa 2013.  I’d have liked to make it four but, believe it or not, even tho I searched, I couldn’t find a really silly or stupid looking real photo (not phtoshop) of John “Lurch” Kerry.

Well anyway ....  President Hollande of France says he will not take France into a bombing campaign against Syria all on its own.  He says if America goes in then so will France. 

So here. For your amusement and ridicule, and snide remarks too.  Ladies and gentlemen of bmews may it please you. I present our glorious wartime leaders for the year of our lord 2013.  The Three Stooges are baaaaak.  Yuk,Yuk

Who looks stupid now? Bid to ban picture that made French President look like a grinning idiot backfires as bizarre shot goes viral

It was quickly withdrawn, sparking a censorship row
AFP is state-funded, but insists it was not asked to pull picture

This unflattering picture of Francois Hollande sparked a censorship row yesterday.

It shows the French President with a gormless-looking grin at a school to coincide with the start of the new term.

The image was released by a photo agency. And when the agency tried to withdraw it from circulation, the photo quickly hit social media sites like Twitter and went worldwide.

The photo shows Hollande grinning in front of a blackboard on which is written: ‘Today, it’s back to school.’

The photograph was taken on Tuesday during Mr Hollande’s visit to a school in Denain, northern France, to coincide with the start of term for hundreds of thousands of French pupils. It appears he was pulling a funny face to make the pupils laugh.

The original image came with the caption: ‘During a visit to the school Denain Michelet, September 3, 2013, Francois Hollande smiles, chairing a panel discussion on the reform of school timetables established by the government.’

AFP initially posted the picture on its website as available for downloading but – apparently concerned it was inappropriate for a head of state – both later issued a ‘mandatory kill’ notice, meaning the photo must not be used.

AFP wrote: ‘Due to an editorial decision this photo has been withdrawn. Please remove from all your systems. We are sorry for any inconvenience and thank you for your cooperation.’

Despite the ban, however, the image quickly hit social media sites like Twitter, and sparked a flurry of comments.

One wrote: ‘Here is the new official photo of François Hollande. Please put up in all town halls!’

Another wrote that no amount of Photoshop editing software ‘can make the president look more intelligent’.

  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
