Be Cheerful, Enjoy Your Life

Words to live by.

A 2,400 year-old mosaic featuring a wine-drinking skeleton and the ancient equivalent of a self-help message has been uncovered in Turkey.

Reclining on a cushion, the skeleton holds a wine cup in one hand while bread and an amphora of wine sit close to hand. Above it, in Greek, is written the phrase, “be cheerful, enjoy your life”.

The mosaic was found in the Turkish province of Hatay near the Syrian border and was part of a richly-decorated floor of what was most likely a wealthy family’s dining room.

“And she’s like, ‘I’m Carol and this is Arne and it is on his bucket list to take tap dance lessons.’”

In Case You Missed It

Alabama’s cadaverous looking governor, Robert Bentley, is in a bit of a pickle lately, thanks to some unwholesome remarks he made, released by a fired law enforcement cabinet officer in a tape yesterday, which was actually just the tip of the iceberg. Now, when he was running for re-election, there’d been some…speculation about why the dignified MRS. Bentley had suddenly moved out of the Governor’s home prior to the election and her lips were TIGHTLY sealed.

Ho, boy.

Thankfully, AL.com has just posted a pretty hilarious “apology” attempt…

Canadians Upset By Portrayal In “The Revenant”

Noted Cinematic Icon Jacque Teauteit reports

Canadian actor says The Revenant ‘stupid’ for portraying French-Canadians as murderous rapists

For portraying French-speaking voyageurs as duplicitous, murdering rapists, a prominent Canadian actor is accusing the hit film The Revenant of being anti-French-Canadian.

“It’s the French Canadians who rape, who lynch, who keep sex slaves,” actor Roy Dupuis was quoted as saying in the Quebec version of Huffington Post.

“They have the worst roles!”

Born in Ontario to Francophone parents, Dupuis is famous for portrayed hockey player Maurice Richard in a 2013 biopic, and for his roles as Canadian general Roméo Dallaire in the Rwandan Genocide drama Shake Hands with the Devil.

Dupuis said he was originally offered the role of Toussaint, the leader of a French-Canadian fur trading expedition, but turned it down after reading the script and seeing the Canadiens depicted as “horrible barbarians.”

A spokesman for 20th Century Fox admitted the error and said “Yes, it was a horrible mistake, we never intended to portray French-Canadians as murderous rapists; in fact we meant to portray them as raping murderers.”

Pretty damn awesome

I really tried to wait.

Sort of.

So All You Snow Storm Area Type People

Be careful out there. Enjoy a cozy weekend home and know that your public officials have every possible scenario well in hand.

Half the fun is sitting back and watching the Weather Channel folks make up asinine storm names and implode over an unexpected dose of “winter” during…winter.

A Night To Celebrate 

or maybe cry; you see, we just sent off the last tuition check for Daughter’s college.
So I pulled out an old Australian Shiraz to celebrate 

   
 
At 15.7 alcohol it has held up pretty well, but has gotten even more syrupy;it’s almost port-like. 
I hope I can stay awake long enough to finish making dinner…
