Valley Forgery

A refreshing alternative take on the greatest of our Founding Fathers, George Washington (via Dylan).

Seems a little rough on the British kids, but there you go – it was war.


George Washington, yesterday. He’s coming…

Brilliant! Dare I call it art? Off to watch it again.

That's just typical of you, Sam. An extra set of testicles and you're anybody's...

Testicle-mad, me.

A fact that isn't being helped by early-morning exposure to 22 sweaty men running around fields in Germany. Housewives shouldn't be allowed to watch it, for their own good. I hear there's a World Cup thingy on too.

Lucky you. I haven't got to see a single game yet. Tho' if that's the sort of emotion it arouses, perhaps I'm better off without...

My this is an interesting thread to pop in on late. Sweaty guys; extra 'nads, etc.

Ivan, I sense a pattern here. Your last several posts have been about:

1. Underage tongues

2. Horses in compromising positions.

3. Hungarian shower habits.

Methinks you're trying to inflate the hit count to make Google Adsense worthwhile.

I wish you luck.

Cheers.

And I forgot the cheerleaders, damn it.

And incest.

Big G Wash snacking on British babies is fairly unlikely, according to self-confessed leftie Gore Vidal. Washington's teeth just weren't up to that task. Vidal suspects the collective dinners of the Founding Daddies were a rather silent affair--many of them lacked several teeth each, so mastication was a daunting prospect every evening, and they often ran the risk of projecting unseemly saliva and bits of half-chewed food towards their distinguished company. The Real George W could have kicked them apart, though. But again, it seems that his own anti-British ferociousness has been overstated; they think it was Benedict Arnold and Ethan Allen (the general, not the furniture maker) who did most of the scaring.

Randall - that's a totally unfounded suggestion, although strangely timely given today's post...

Des - I suppose that if you're stuck trying to eat corn on the cob with wooden teeth you might become a little impatient with your enemies. But I'd take the original and best George W, or even Benedict Arnold, over that whiny little wuss Vidal anyday.

Dear Vidal - I wonder if he misses his beautiful home in Italy. Did he come back to you?
