Houses & Bushes

"You have built flatpack furniture – now you can live in a flatpack house." (From here - my mum just texted to tell me!) "Ikea, the Swedish furniture giant, is to create a series of prefabricated homes, for sale or rent, in Glasgow." Looks like they're going to be BoKlok houses. This sounds cool! I'm all in favour. spiderpixie's work is a Scandinavian flat-pack building, and hasn't fallen down yet. Well, most of it hasn't...

I can't decide whether America's Battered Wife Syndrome is funnier than it is sad, or vice versa. While we're on Bush stuff - icon whee! (Both bohemiancoast and caitirin have made this icon - I snagged this off bohemiancoast cos I saw hers first!) This pic is doing very well for itself - it's on Snopes already, and I've had it emailed to me this morning, along with this, which made me laugh. The caption is "Help At Last."

Nope, it's sadder than it is funny. It made me cry, anyway.

:o( Yeah, it's not nice. But very, scarily, accurate.

It's funny AND sad...and I so TOTALLY agree with it. Maybe now those "red state" voters will realize you can't just vote your religion and then expect things to be done right.

And then when the Democrats manage to get a president elected and he or she screws things up too maybe the "blue state" electors will realise that you can't just vote your left-of-centre prejudices and then expect things to be done right either...

true...
We middle-of-the-roaders need to band together and elect someone who serves us all, not just their special interest groups!

(the problem is, the red state folks are inherently much more vocal and tend to be heard more) We mid-road types tend to be a little more laid back. Guess we gotta stop being that way.

Speaking of silly/sad pics, have you seen this one?
