Just for fun…. and scorn.

Speaking of Red Chinese balloons…

Wow. A reminder that effeminacy isn’t recent. Those were the days of the “SNAG”, the “Sensitive New Age Guy”.

This one is for the homosexualist and communist leaning Jesuits who need remedial liturgical catechesis.

    Why didn’t they shoot it down over land? Were they concerned the birds would eat the tainted fortune cookies?

    It brings to mind the installment of Winnie the Pooh, wherein he attempts to disguise himself as a rain cloud and ascend by means of a balloon in order to make clandestine access to a beehive. Amusing in itself, given the current leader of China’s *cough* ursine resemblance… Oh bother.

    “Christophore Robine!’ Susurravit magna voce.
    ‘Credo apes suspicionem habere!’
    ‘Quid habent?”
    ‘Nescio. Sed aliquid mihi dicit: suspicionem.’
    ‘Fortasse suspiciunt te mel eorum petere?’
    ‘Fieri potest. De apibus semper dubitandum est.’

    Far superior in the original Latin.

    Not that the 80s were lacking in effiminacy, but the German singer Nena was actually a girl! :)

    Props for the Latin!
    Lol to the memes. They couldn’t shoot it down over Montana, it might have landed on a tree. For those of us of a certain age, it’s crazy, knowing that in not that long ago time, it would have been identified before it entered the continental US, shot down without delay, and there would have been an international incident with outrage on our part, not China’s, which used to be normal if you tried to float a spy balloon over a sovereign nation. But you can float them over a once-sovereign nation with no problem whatever.
    Maybe they didn’t want to stop it before it’s work was done. I’m sure it’s mission accomplished. They know our layout very well now. Good grief.
