Georges Clemenceau was never called an imbécile

Georges Clemenceau and moustache

French politician Georges Clemenceau (1841-1929) was a man of many accomplishments; journalist, physician and twice Prime Minister of France.

But any dispassionate analysis would surely agree his greatest achievement was growing that rockin' walrus moustache.

When I get old, I am so growing a walrus moustache.

I may also affect a French accent and opt for total war against Germany.

I'm sentimental that way.

So how much have you grown so far?

And that war against Germany thing didn't work out so well for the French people, did it?

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

Haven't started yet, Boogey.

It's a project for my old age.

In any war against Germany there are bound to be setbacks. The important thing is to try.

Have you run this great plan past Mrs. Insertnamehere?

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

No need Perseus.

Who wouldn't love a walrus moustache?

There's no time like the present.

I've always planned on growing a big Lemmy von Motörhead handlebar mnoustache, and have embarked on this venture a few times in the last couple of decades. After about the third week I'm in agony from the itching, and I realise why hair shirts were such an effective torture in the good old days.

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

No great project can be achieved without some pain, Boogey.

"My son is 22 years old. If he had not become a Communist at 22, I would have disowned him. If he is still a Communist at 30, I will do it then." -- Clemenceau.

Sure about your idol comrade?

Why? So you could then capitulate and thus honour that old French tradition?

Fucking French.

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

The French gave the Germans a bit of a pasting in 1793, Wari.

True, their record since then has been a bit patchy.

Glad to see you back, John.

Boogeyman said...

Gave them a good drubbing in WWI too, come to think of it.

Just that grudge rematch in WWII that didn't work out so swimmingly.

A woman who prefers not to have sandpaper dragged across her "map of Tassie" during foreplay.

Urgh I wish there was a more refined way of putting it....

Boogey? Perseus?

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

WitchOne has been quiet of late.

I wonder if she's had the witchlet yet?

homesick said...

I believe she has... a healthy baby girl.

Host and alien doing well according to the lastest reports.

That's as refined as it's ever going to get Homesick, unless you go all Anais Nin and shit and go with 'mons veneris'.

homesick said...

Don't put your Walrus/Clemenseau lip fungus anywhere near my 'hill of Venus'...


Yep that is better.


Thanks Perseus.. you're hot!!!

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

Host and alien doing well according to the lastest reports.

Huzzah!

Please pass on my best wishes.

And old Georges was a bit of a root-rat, so clearly French women are more broadminded.

Thanks for that Ramon.. a mighty fine Penfolds 2004 Shiraz just came out of my nostrils.

What a waste.

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

I bet Desci is pestering the Boyf to grow a walrus moustache, even as we speak.

More about avoiding the garlic breath, methinks.

Perseus said...

Oh! Oh! Ramon... the headline.

Jonathan Richman.

What prize do I win? And this time I hope it's better than the last time I picked an obscure reference of yours and I got to be your 'beer slave for 24 hours'.

Desci said...

INH, no matter how HOTT Wilfred Brimley looks with his walrus, 'taches in all forms remind me of my dad. And that's the biggest NO in the biz.

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

Well done Perseus.

As for prizes...

How about I shout you a beer, next time you're in town?

Perseus said...

Deal. Band. Gig. Brunswick. Soon.

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

Dess, I can see that would be a bit of a turn off.

Perseus - shoot me an email, closer to the time.

I wouldn't want it dragged across my face, let alone anywhere else. Eww, scratchy!

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

I am shocked, shocked teh chicks of TSFKA are so narrow minded.

Where's the "never say die" spirit that got this country through so many hard times; wars, depressions, the tragic "Baby Animals" years.

catlick said...

Whereas for me kissing a 'tache or beard creates a sensorial confusion that is most disconcerting.

I don't get it. Don't any of you people 'exfoliate'?

Surely a moustachioed man saves you heaps in expensive beauty treatments?

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

Chicks, eh Boogey.

There's no understanding them.

Puss In Boots said...

You're only supposed to exfoliate once a week, Boogey. Not exactly a plethora of sexy fun times then.

Besides, I have such sensitive skin on my face that I get a rash if Merlin isn't clean shaven. Not pretty.

Boogeyman said...

Chicks, eh Boogey.

I skim read that and thought you said, "There's no withstanding them" to which I heartily agree.

You've never kissed hairy lips before, Catlick?

Boogeyman said...

And on discussions of facial hair, I believe Lord Flashheart gave the definitive reason for a man to grow a beard:

"Thanks, Bridesmaid. Like the beard. Gives me something to hang on to."

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

I'd turn for Georges.

catlick said...

Boogey, you're a naughty naughty boy.

WitchOne said...

I'm baccckkk, here to bless you all with my mostly inane comments.

Baby girl, stunning, never cries and sleeps when she should. Thank god or a refund would be required. She's almost stopped looking like an alien too!

The 'tache "could" be good for the foreplay, depending on how rough it gets, wouldn't kiss it though. That's just disgusting!

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

Mazel Tov on the new bub, Witchie!

Must be a weight off your mind. And your back.

WitchOne said...

Thanks INH. Good side effect - small belly, massive tits. :-)

Louche said...

Congratulations Witchone.

Boogeyman said...

Sounds like an odd looking baby, WitchOne.

Are you sure there wasn't a mix-up at the hospital? Perhaps the nurses gave you a midget pr0n star by mistake.

Kerces said...

He looks like one of my French teachers at uni (Clemenceau, not the witchybub, which I have not seen). He used to wear a straw boater, shirts with lung cuffs and puffy sleeves and rode a bicycle in aforementioned boater. And told us that if we had a little dictionary we should throw it out the window because that was all it was good for.

WitchOne said...

Should have been clearer.... Still, you gave me a larf.... ;-)

shitbmxrider said...

As a owner/operator of facial hair(big ole' fat elvis sideburns, not a 'tache, tho), I am in awe of that there walrus moustache.


I give it 4 thumbs up
