Saturday: Hili dialogue

by Grania

Welcome to the weekend. It’s the birthday of Saddam Hussein (1937), Violent J of Insane Clown Posse (1972), and writer Harper Lee (1926). Today in 1996 Whitewater controversy was underway and President Bill Clinton had to testify in his own defense.

For reasons unknown to the gods, it was #OldHeadshotDay on Twitter. This prompted every Hollywood actor out there, normally so shy and self-effacing, to post pictures of themselves. Well, more pictures of themselves. Don’t encourage them.

On Twitter today, we have an Amsterdam traffic jam.

Termite circles in the Namib.

Today in Interspecies love we have capybaras loving on everything.

A Royal Flycatcher (Onychorhynchus coronatus)

And finally the Obligatory Cat.  This one has a unique way of asking for its dinner.

From Poland, Hili is showing her contempt for deities.

Hili: You are good for claw sharpening.
A: Hili, do not blaspheme.

In Polish:

Hili: Nadajesz się do ostrzenia pazurków.
Ja: Hili, nie bluźnij.

Hat-tip: Blue

    Strangely juvenile the happenings of Clinton compared to events today of Trump and his minions. Whitewater such a joke was actually republicans foaming at the mouth.

    The cat looks sad. I was hoping the owner would feed her by the end of the film clip. Poor thing.

    I know that Hili is scratching the totem, but a believer might think that’s a pose of supplication and not a blasphemous manicure.

    I knew a cat that would tip it’s bowl (really a small plate) like that to signal that it was ready to be fed.

    “It’s the birthday of Saddam Hussein (1937), Violent J of Insane Clown Posse (1972), and writer Harper Lee (1926).”

    Now *that* would have been one crazy joint birthday party!
