Almost Wordless Wednesday: Earflaps


I don't care who you vote for, this is funny:

You've got to love our older Veterans.

This man, 73, wears a protective flap over his ear while Senator Ted Kennedy, Barack Obama, and Hillary Clinton address the Veterans of Foreign Wars.

I just want to know where he got it....?

lol, I thought that you photoshopped it in... knowing you...

Anyway, it seems like it's gonna be a walkover from the news reports over here in London. Oh well, let's see how it turns out.

I have to agree with you Matt on this one. Even though we may be on opposite sides politically...this is definitely funny.

And you are right. You simply have to love the old vets.

Right now I am just about ready to have some of those myself.:-)))

Very funny. I think we could all use those. I always reach for my earplugs when Obama and McCain tell me about their plans to cut taxes, but maybe that's just me.

Tjat is a hilariously creative statement :)

btw, I noticed that you say the pic was taken when Senator Ted Kennedy, Barack Obama, and Hillary Clinton were addressing the Veterans of Foreign Wars, while the site you pointed to claims it was Bush who was addressing said Veterans. The correct info is at

David--you are exactly right. Both McCain and Obama will have to increase taxes if they try and do anything to keep any one of their promises made in this campaign. It's all lies meant to sway the tragically large percentage of the American Electorate that don't read or think for themselves but who actually believe all the soundbites taken out of context on the news and in "political ads."

-Willow-: You're right. The pic is real and was actually from a Bush speech. I'm using poetic license and applying it to the Democrats, which has been circulating via email on the internet. Maybe I should have checked first. However, I wish you would use this same level of Bullshit Detection to all the political ads coming out from Barack Obama, because every single one of them is a lie or half truth slickly produced to mislead the American Electorate.

Cheers all! I'm glad you enjoyed the laugh. More to come.
