MTFC spits on your grave

.




This excellent Martin Rowson cartoon should have been put up for a best caption competition.

Any ideas?

No ideas yet (I'm still pretty brain dead after a heavy weekend). I assume the initials stand for murderous, two-faced etc, and not Mansfield Town Football Club :)

I'll be back if I can think of anything suitable...

You would not believe it but the MoD have a "history & honour" section to their news site, and who's got top billing?
The fecking Fifeshire Feartie with his Harry Patch farewell tour wheeze!
OGUL & honour do not belong on the same web page.

Correct, Trousers.
Simple.

Billy Bones, we have run out of ways to describe the fllth that these people are.

One favourite French comedy film is Les Ripoux (Le Cop) which is a play on words in French about 'rotten' using criminal 'eggy type' slang.

No such fun with OGUL/MTFC

These people are rotten through and through.

No comedy there.

The power-and-warfare-at-all-costs Dick(less) Cheney-personality type IS a sick cookie! Merkin, thanks for your word at BW today, I'm just in from another round of combining and have to feed various critters now at nine before I fart out...later, man!

Merkin said...

Yes, Zola, we understand that but do you have any suggestions for a caption?

Nice one anti - that about sums it up.

Jose said...

I have no suggestions for a caption, I think Anticant's is the best so far.

But the one big monument with the one flag and the pile of flags without a monument - I'd say because lack of room to commemorate the "minor" dead - gives that idea of dual honours, if we can call honours to a disarranged heap of flags.

On reflection perhaps : dual morals even among dead.+

Merkin said...

Jose, I am inclined to agree with you that Anti has topped the poll.

Therefore, competition closed for the time being.

Time honoured fashion dictates :

In third place - Anticant.
In second place - Anticant.
In first place - Anticant.

A special prize to Zola for confusing the judge as to his true intentions.

PS Zola, hope the stomach has settled down.

There is a feeble piece by Adrian Hamilton in today's 'Independent' saying what a tw*t (I am not Dave Cameron - thank goodness - so I can almost say it) David Miliband is.

When I was little I used to crawl around the floor on hands and knees being a bus driver. That is how Milipede's performance as Foreign Secretary strikes me. But they are all like that, including the Great Gordo and even Mandelson. They keep popping up on TV making sonorous pronouncements without twigging that scarcely anyone is still listening or believing a word of it. And the Tory front bench don't look much more convincing.

As you say, Merkin, one is a loss for words to describe this shower posing as statespersons. They are not even credible politicians.

I really must stop looking down on things.

Living with The Conspiracy 24/7 has come up with a bumper package - any of which would be worthy of award.

Thanks.
