  1. Yeek..the first one reminds me of a Professor I had in a very painful Women's Studies class--one of those mandatory "diversity studies" university classes...

    She instantly homed in on me as I had the AUDACITY to wear makeup, lipstick,and a bra.. (sorry dahling--but without a bra my boobies would be down to my knees...)

    All I could think of in her class was that she was a sex change operation gone horribly wrong, shame on me, she was probably a very brilliant academian..

    Fortunately I was able to drop the class before too much harm was done to my GPA..

  2. This time you've gone too far. How dare you combine the image of our Muslim leader with that of Tony Blair, one of the greatest Catholic politicians in the history of Great Britain. Have you no decency? Have you no respect? Think of what dear Joe Biden- another admirable Catholic- might say to you if he were alive. His wisdom and moral compass sustained the people of this country through some very difficult and challenging times. So for goodness sake, show some respect and remove that offensive image. A public act of contrition might also do your ego some good:0)

    Sara--you beat me! I was going to ask T if he had heard NPH and his hubbie are having twins!

    Terry--I am disappointed in you, no coverage of the Obama's weekened getaway to the Gulf. You're slipping!

  6. You still have it up??? This is an outrage! I demand justice! I WANT the creator of the image and the owner of this blog who perpetuates it to explain themselves to authorities:0)

  8. I thought the top one was Beryl Clinton.

    That morph Image site is a lot of fun. I did one of me - I might have a contest at my blog to guess who I'm morphed with.

    Yep - another 15 minutes of my life that I'll never get back.
