Hey LNO what did Santa bring you ? Did you hang a stocking up or are you too old for that ?
I Wonder what a good little Danish boy longs for at Christmas? The Hans Christian Andersen bumper book of fairy stories with 18 colour illustration !
Of course !
The one present I really coveted as a child was when a school friend got shot by an air rifle, we all clubbed together and the teacher bought her some finger puppets. Little puppets that fit on yours fingers.
I had never seen them before, or since actually, I was only seven, but they looked great, and I soooo wanted them. No I mean REALLY wanted them!
I remember thinking what does it take to get shot by an air rifle round here !?
It was only a dumb leg wound anyway, well worth the agony to land such a brilliant toy.
So she was limping for six weeks..... Yeah limping all the way home to her finger puppet friends !!!!
Lucky cow !

To targets civilians, non combatants should be recognised as a war crime whether you win or lose the war.
Unfortunately only the losers ever face charges of being war criminals.
There is no valid excuse for the nuclear attack on Hiroshima, and jokes about it is not funny either – they are offensive.
I am sure that most Americans are very nice and kind people, and let me clarify that 99 % of all my statements about Americans in this forum have been jokes (and yes they might be bad jokes, and I am sorry if anyone has been offended by them – that was not the intention).
