Caption Caption Contest For The Year Of The "Whores"

Tyler Durden's picture


The BBC caption-machine discusses the Chinese new year (the year of the horse)... but goes a little too phonetic. Are they wrong?

I'm waiting for the Year of the Pussy myself.


PS: At least they didn't say "Welcome to the Year of the whores. People around the globe celebate."  That would have been truly ironic.

And then there is that song, "The First of the Month." Why is it someone trying to do things the right way is the one getting screwed by BO and the FSA?

They screw those who are easiest to screw.  Fair has nothing to do with it and never did.  They're vultures, locusts.  They consume everything consumable and move on to the next meal.  And no, they don't lose a minute's sleep over it.  In fact, screwing people over is how they prove to themselves they're superior to everyone else.

Marcus Tullius Cicero, Bureaucracy quotes:   A bureaucrat is the most despicable of men, though he is needed as vultures are needed, but one hardly admires vultures whom bureaucrats so strangely resemble. I have yet to meet a bureaucrat who was not petty, dull, almost witless, crafty or stupid, an oppressor or a thief, a holder of little authority in which he delights, as a boy delights in possessing a vicious dog. Who can trust such creatures?

Us in the QA profession might agree, Skateboarder. Performing QC on our (American) suppliers leaves me distraught sometimes.

That is the NAFTA boomerang effect.

That's sad to hear. You would hope that 'Made in USA' still meant quality stuff, but given that the people keep eating up cheap plastic shit and pass it off as excellence, I don't know if QC even applies to the new paradigm.

No bigger or better whores than those at the state-funded BBC.  

Tony Rooke refused to pay a TV license fee because the BBC intentionally misrepresented facts about the 9/11attacks, he alleged. It is widely known that the BBC reported the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7 over 20 minutes before it occurred. WTC 7 was a 47-story skyscraper that was not hit by a plane on 9/11 but collapsed at free-fall speed later that day.

So Rooke said the BBC had to have had prior knowledge to a terror attack making them complicit in the attack. He presented the BBC footage to the judge along with a slew of other evidence, and the judge agreed that Rooke had a reasonable case to protest. Rooke was found not guilty and he was not fined for failure to pay the licensing fee.

For all intents and purposes a UK court has just ruled that the BBC was complicit in the September 11th, 2001 attacks in the United States.


In the United Kingdom and the Crown Dependencies, any household watching or recording live television transmissions as they are being broadcast (terrestrial, satellite, cable, or internet) is required to hold a television licence. Since 1 April 2010 the annual licence fee has been £145.50 for colour and £49.00 for black and white (Wiki)
