Reality is slightly like classic satire, on the internet anyway and not really

From The Telegraph:

Donestk was founded in the 19th century by John Hughes, a Merthyr Tydfil steel worker who had landed a contract from the Tsarist government to provide steel plating for the navy.

Now residents of the city have responded to pro-Russian protests for autonomy from Kiev with an internet vote that rejects Russia's claims in favour of a turn to the Queen and London.

And in other News, Scotland votes to join Russia.

Lola: I've already said we can take on Scotland, if only DBC stops insisting that the North will be part of the deal.

Kj - if so, please will you leave Hexam and its environs and Barnard Castle behind please? (It's a family thing)

You really are in top form today almost as good as Duff & Nonsenses Monday funnies.

To be fair this wasn't MWs post.

That's something else which puzzles me.

In the good old days when we used bows and arrows, did people shout "Fire!"?

Doesn't "fire' apply to firearms?

So what did they say? "Let go!"?

Kj said...

MW: "Shoot"?
