Still exploring video, and neglecting script. This one doesn’t quite reach amateurish level. Getting there, though.
Item 20 Dirty Jokes That Were Secretly Hidden in the Kids’ Cartoons of Our Youth (ellipses original)
We watched a whole lot of television back in the day (we still do, but we used to, too). The animated shows and movies of our youth remain eternal classics in our hearts. They always will. But we have to revisit a few of them because there were definitely some jokes in these shows and movies…adult, dirty jokes…that flew over our heads when we were kids.
Only now, as full-grown, mature adults, can we fully appreciate the gross, hilarious humor of the sick minds we put in charge of entertaining us as kids.
I don’t recommend clicking. The only point to make about this, dividing through for the possibility of some stretched-interpretations on their part, is that they are boasting of the perverted humor put in front of kids.
Meanwhile, for a good cartoon, click here. And speaking of the kiddies, our next item.
Item Washington, DC, could let 16-year-olds vote for president
The Washington, D.C., City Council is preparing to vote on a bill to lower the voting age to 16 for all elections, both local and federal.
WTOP-FM reports the bill won 3-0 approval in the Judiciary and Public Safety committee Thursday and will get a final vote before the full council this month.
The 26th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees citizens 18 and older the right to vote, but scholars have said it doesn’t prevent a state, or in this case, the nation’s capital, from setting a lower age.
Council member Charles Allen says his bill will “enfranchise the District’s young people and bring their voices into the political process.”
Does it really need to be said that sixteen-year-olds are too young and dumb to vote for president? Or for anything except class president? They can’t even be trusted to vote where to go to lunch. Kids this young are—I feel like an idiot pointing out something so obvious—easy to manipulate. Kids two years older are too, except for a minority. Except we will allow no intelligence-means tests for voting.
Those in the grip of Equality always push for more of it. There is no reason whatsoever to stop at sixteen. Why not fifteen? Or fourteen? Hey, don’t you want to be inclusive? Are you some kind of age bigot? Aren’t ten-year-olds poeple, too? Don’t eight-year-olds deserve a say in who their president is? Why do you want to shut them up? There are more minorities under seven than whites, you racist.
Democracy. It’s for everyone!
Item Headmistress sacked after ‘anti-Semitic’ Merchant Of Venice offends parents
The former head of a British private school has apparently been fired from her new role in Canada – after a performance of The Merchant Of Venice was deemed anti-semitic…
The version of the play was performed at the school by London-based Box Clever Theatre last month.
Pupils and parents in the audience were apparently encouraged to shout ‘Hallelujah’ and ‘Burn The Jews’ in response to slogans about persecuting Jews and Shylock, according to claims by parents.
A letter signed by 24 parents was sent to the school criticised the one-man show, performed on October 17. They said it contained demeaning, derogatory and inappropriate language with anti-Semitic sentiment that was offensive to Jewish students.
Complaints from parents allegedly led to Ms Carlisle being sacked on Friday. The letter added that Jewish students whose families were personally affected by the Holocaust felt uncomfortable.
Perhaps those parents forgot that Shylock got the last word? Or perhaps they’ve never been in a Catholic church round Good Friday, in which the congregation takes on the vocal part of the mob that called for Jesus’s to be crucified. This action has not turned many folks into atheists; quite the opposite.
Amusingly, the paper sought to bypass potential criticism and so included for nervous readers the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s “working definition” of anti-“Semitism”.
Item 40 years ago, the pride flag and the 401k were introduced. Both proudly promote important values: diversity and preparing for retirement. #CelebrateLikeIts78
Link is to tweet from something called Voya, some kind of retirement company. Boasting of the link between the pervert pennant and 401ks? Odd, that.
Item A Milestone: All Of The Walking Dead’s Relationships Are Now Interracial Or LGBT
In this massive ensemble cast, every single relationship on the show is either interracial or LGBT, a departure from the source material, due to some major changes, and a milestone for a show as popular as TWD.
Seems to us they missed a perfect idea to embrace the upcoming sexual orientation necrophilia, this being the Walking Dead.

Kids’ Cartoons of Our Youth
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that cartoons were made to be appreciated by kids AND adults. They were openers for movies where both where in attendance. Betty Boop cartoons were full of innuendo. Not to mention the wolves in zoot suits, entertainment by crooning black cats and really short skirts. There was the one that cut to Cab Calloway performing “Minnie the Moocher
” — a song about the sadness of drug addiction plus the original meaning of moocher was bar hopper.
Might have a point about cartoons made for TV like the Animaniacs. But the Animaniacs continued the dual movie audience idea of their predecessors. They were full of multilevel jokes and sight gags. Made them a joy to watch IMHO.
The cruel crime of FGM should be vigorously rooted out and prosecuted by the authorities; it has no place in a civilized society. But, as with crimes of violence against persons generally, it is a matter that the constitution leaves to the states. The judge in this case ruled that the commerce clause does not give Congress the authority to pass any laws that it wants. He is correct. There was no interstate commerce here. This clause has provided an excuse for the federal government to continually expand its powers and encroach upon state matters, using fanciful, and at times farcical, notions of how anything that it wants to legislate about may have something to do with interstate commerce. I had the impression that Briggs was, like me, against such federal overreaching. It would seem that today’s “sigh” means he disagrees with the judge, and is now in favor of expanding federal power until it reaches every nook and cranny of our lives. Or, perhaps he has no actual principles and just looks at the outcome in particular cases—rather like many of our federal judges.
I’ve seen that cartoon with the cut to Cab Calloway performing “Minnie the Moocher.” It’s stunning, as are so many cartoons from that era. Yes, Betty Boop cartoons were pretty suggestive. But look at how they were drawn, and animated! Everything is alive! These gems were truly labors of love.
Betty Boop cartoons (like many others of the period) were for adults, not children.
As a duck owner, I can assure you my male duck cannot and would not “pleasure” himself. He has one interest—and it’s female and of the same species. (Yes, duck mating is a sight to behold—or avoid beholding….)
I thought everyone knew Alice was supposedly high. The writer was allegedly drugged up when he wrote the books. I liked Alice, but I was never like other kids. I am told most did not like the book as children.
Only Donald Duck and Alice were from my childhood. None of the others were anything I would have watched, so I guess I missed all the innuendo. Or I just lucked out and was not subjected to it.
VOYA’s spokesmen are orange paper squirrels. Enough said.
Betty Boop cartoons (like many others of the period) were for adults, not children.
Yet many were shown during the Saturday morning cartoons on TV aimed at children with lots of toy ads. The PBS series Matinee at the Bijou whose official mascot was Betty Boop ran many of Betty’s cartoons on weekend mornings and some stations (KCET, e.g.) ran them daily in the morning and afternoon slots.
Frankly, I never really liked Betty Boop cartoons as a kid. It wasn’t until I got older that I began to appreciate them.So, yeah, maybe they were targeted more at the adult audience.
Does it really need to be said that sixteen-year-olds are too young and dumb to vote for president?”
Considering the idiot for whom white old male voted for I would say that 16 year old are geniuses.
Do you still feel Kavanaugh was a big plus for Republican
I think I mentioned before that, for the Left, everything is about politics even down to their choice in ice cream flavors. It’s an obsession that ruins their enjoyment of everything. Very sad. They need more meaningful lives.
If I was a bazillionaire, I’d buy a lot of advertising before each election encouraging people not to vote.
We don’t need more voters, we need smarter voters. Badgering the uninformed and the indifferent into voting is not a good thing.
Badgering? We ain’t got no badgering. We don’t need no badgering! I don’t have to show you any stinking badgering!!
I see that you realize that your kind is a true minority
Yes, I’m one of a kind.
