Who Woulda Thunk It? Heinz Mayochup Is Officially Coming to the USA

________________________

Give yourself an extra pat on the back… thanks to you, there’s a new symbol of America joining the ranks of apple pie, the bald eagle, and red, white, and blue Chubbies, and its name (for now) is Mayochup. After igniting an internet war last week, Heinz left the decision to bring its new condiment hybrid stateside in our hands. After almost a million votes, the country decided that mayonnaise and ketchup, in fact, do belong in the same bottle. However, the one thing more controversial about the sauce itself is what its name should actually be. It seems like Heinz can’t decide either, so for now, the brand is asking us to exercise our internet voices once again to come up with something better.

Heinz sells this all over the world…. actually, the USA is Tail-End Charlie as far as this prepared condiment is concerned. If you’re of “a certain age”, you remember “two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onion, on a sesame-seed bun”. The special sauce was nothing more than ketchup and mayonnaise mashed together… mayochup. You’ve had it before thousands of times on fast-food burgers. Now, all you lazy fuckers won’t have to mix it up yourselves. Of course, if you want it spicy, well, you’ll have to mix your own hot sauce…

10 April 2018. I D Kobzon With His Granddaughters on His 80th Birthday… The USA has this Grand Old Man on the Sanctions List… EVIL!

The first two vids are from a concert honouring the 80th birthday of the famous singer I D Kobzon. The third one is from some years ago, with one of his granddaughters singing Guardian Angel (My Grandpa). The neoliberal pigs in the USA have Iosif Davydovich on their sanctions list. He’s a Donetsk homie and he stands tall for his hometown’s brave resistance to the American aggressors and their Galician Uniate dog allies. Iosif Davydovich is proud of his Jewish heritage, as well he should be. He’s also proud of his hometown, which shows that he’s a decent human being and a stand-up guy. It does tell you much about the Americans and their “sanctions”, doesn’t it?

This is one of the most life-affirming things that I’ve seen in a long time.

4 March 2018. I AM “Older Than Dirt”

________________________

I remember phones on the wall, colour TVs that were pieces of furniture in the living room, no cable TV (let alone digital), no Mickey Dee’s or the Colonel (both came in the late 60s), Walkmans, cassette tapes, eight-tracks, TV-dinners, Edsels, transistor radios, and so much more… like rolling joints over a Grand Funk album cover (the prefered sort was the E Pluribus Funk cover shaped like a silver dollar). I AM “older than dirt”… it doesn’t bother me.

I AM an “elder”… but to decide whether I have wisdom or not is up to you, not me…
