“Off With Their Heads!”

Queen of Hearts

We’re all familiar with Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There. Right now, I am thinking of the Queen of Hearts. The following quotation makes the Queen look very sane, indeed. This is an illustration of the sort of thing that one puts up with if one’s blog is popular. Actually, it’s a howler and says more about the author than it does about me. In short, I’m LAUGHING… and the thought that some bloke is taking this seriously and thinks that this is hurting me is HILARIOUS. Truly, I have a sense of humour and proportion… which this barmy wanker obviously doesn’t!

Read it for yourself (I didn’t make this up… no, I didn’t… I SWEAR to you on a stack of bibles!):


how pathetic
none cares to comment anymore
how pathetic
you have to comment on your own posts
how nice to know all the
little voices of russia
in your head all agree with you

the little voice of russia
maybe millions
but the anger
the hatred
the violence
what Christian people in the ussr?


proud to be you



Spelling, punctuation, and grammar are as in the original sent to me.

This is a sign of something. As Bob Czech said to me many moons ago, “They wouldn’t be hollering if what you said wasn’t true”. Poor dears… you can’t shoot ALL the messengers. Indeed… what are they going to do? Hire a hit-man for a KGB-style mokriye dyela? I think NOT! The obvious boobosity and pomposity of my interlocutor has me wondering if they are married or in a relationship. What sort of person would want such an obvious loser in their life?

Let’s lift a glass and cheer! If this is the best that the opposition can muster… there’s hope for the old planet yet! SMILE… that really riles ‘em (shaking my head and laughing as I pass you your glass). The best revenge you can have on such sorts is having a wonderful day and not thinking further of such rot.

Remember… you tend to grow a THICK skin in the Church. There are malicious, malevolent, and spiteful children about… Do remember the scene in Dickens’ A Christmas Carol at end of the section dealing with the Ghost of Christmas Present. The Ghost opened his robe to show two urchins clinging to him, and Scrooge asked who they were. “This boy is Ignorance, and this girl is Want. They cling to me for protection. Beware them both, but, especially beware this boy”. Yes, indeed… it DOES take all kinds. Why must they all cross MY path, though?

Cheers, and have a wonderful weekend!

Editor’s Postscript:

Of course, “Off with their heads” is NOT what I think. I’m not so silly and self-centred. Isn’t it a perfect characterisation of my interlocutor’s attitude to the world as revealed in their screed? There is no way to know who this was, as it was anonymous (as all such cowardly and childish missives are), but, it would not surprise me to find that this came from the hands of an angry konvert (yet, I am wise enough to know that such filth does not stick to many (or, indeed, most) converts). I am going to continue to post on “touchy” topics in future. Those whose skins are thin should either stay away, change their behaviour, or grow up. That’s the way of it in the adult world… you don’t shut someone up by throwing a tantrum and stamping your foot. Only toddlers think that (isn’t that a sad commentary on our society, especially the suburban affluent effluent?).
