It Ain't Over Till ..........It's Defused

Today's blog was going to be about the escalation in 'Eastern' Europe - The Yanks having refused to ratify the Arms Control Treaty, the Russkies don't see why they alone should abide by it now.
Does this seem a coincidence considering the news this week that the Japs have agreed to pay in Euros for their Iranian oil?
Let's just hope so.
Still, worrying stuff.

So, rather than make you all miserable, a little bit of a Horror Story from the medical journals.
But be warned - you might be miserable if you are very fat and like putting strange objects up the chimney.

As we know, not all American women are like Baywatch Babes.

Anyone seen the zapper for the TV?
'500 lb. woman from Illinois was examined in the hospital.
During the examination, an asthma inhaler fell from under her
armpit, a dime was found under one of her breasts, and a remote
control was found lodged between the folds of her vulva.'

What can you say?
Next please.
Okey Dokey.
Kinky or Perverted - ya pays yer money.

Bum burner or suicide bummer?
'A World War II veteran came into a London clinic with a
hemorrhoid problem. One painful pile would often hang down from the man's anus and he was in the habit of pushing it back up with an artillery shell. On this occasion, the shell got stuck.
Doctors were going to remove it but the man told them the shell
was still live. So the hospital called in the army bomb disposal
squad, who built a lead box around the man's anus to defuse the
shell so it could be removed

Merkin : you touch sensitive souls here methinks.
Indeed the NATO and "other" big boys with toys have been teasing Russia for some time now. It has not gone on without many a sad eyebrow twitching.

Finland is slap bang in the middle of this OR AT LEAST IT USED TO BE until it tried to play USA-UK games that satisfied only a few. If comments here come forward I would try to expand and be clear but enough for now on a weekend of bombs up arses.

Today in one publication I called, with a tongue in cheek, for the return of PETSAMO due to the Arctic Power Games. I implied a return to the "Petsamo Station".

The "Finland Station" was of course the subject of a very good book by E.Wilson.

Thanks for that blog Merk.

Placed as I am, not so far from the home of Britain's 'Independent' Nuclear Deterrent, my mood this weekend is somewhat more Epicurean in nature than normal.
Na fuckin' Pohybel.

BTW : Should have said that Finland lost the town and arctic area of Petsamo to Russia after the so called Second World War Agreements that were really early 1940s.
Petsamo was the only ice-free port for Finland in this arctic zone.
Petsamo is rich in minerals !!!!

The "Finland Station" was one of the names used for Russian-Finnish and European-international diplomacy.

Today, afet many years of rather good work, the old Helsinki Agreement is worthless.
Shame for all Finns.

That pinch of worry in the humour meal you served in this post was the spices that humour needed. Perfectly seasoned, Merkin.
