Nothing in this blog can be believed. If you think that anything in this blog is true or factual, you'll need to verify it from another source. Do you understand? No? Then read it again, and repeat this process, until you understand that you cannot sue me for anything you read here. Also, having been sucked into taking part in the mass-murder of more than 3 million Vietnamese people on behalf of U.S. Big Business "interests", I'm as mad as a cut snake (and broke) so it might be a bit silly to try to sue me anyway...

This touched my heart...

Not at all what I was expecting when I visited today, but a lovely post nonetheless.

If I come up with a good caption, I'll be back :)

OK so you've had plenty of time to get over your sentimentality. Its a set up. A schmaltzy set up. How do I know this? A finely honed sense of cynicism, whispers something is sniffy about this pic. The backpacks are similar, the parents are studiously reading the ingredients on packets seemingly completely oblivious to the great dangers their little darlings are in. (ok so I exaggerrate a little) But it just wouldn't happen like this, parents would be more aware. I'm a cynical old bitch I know and glad that your heart was softened even if you've been emotionally manipulated by high schmaltz. Now you're going to tell me that you personally know who took the picture and that I'm completely wrong eh?

Okay Bear, apology completed. The House of Reps has voted for sanity. Not all men are shits, some women are. I do not consider Danna Vale a woman, she is an idiot and should be drummed out of the sisterhood.

Now come out of hiding and start abusing, I'm beginning to feel unloved.

Love my word verification, rokrh.

OK Gerry, sorry to have upset you with my nasty cynicism and possibly have caused you to retreat back into your cave. Thoughtless of me. Its still a cute pic, the kids do obviously like each other which is the main thing huh?

You are very cynical Link. You should realize that the babies are giving the international hand sign for 'I am sitting on one million bucks worth of smack and do you think we'll get through customs'.

jahteh takes the win with that one I reckon, and I also agree with everyone above.
It probably is a setup, but we all know how little kids respond to each other, even before they can speak, their tiny little overworked perceptions go 'ooh look there's another small person like me!'. and do we grow out of it?
'like me' is the key.
we hang out with others who loathe Liberals, or love Bob Dylan songs, or follow a team - 'ooh look there's another one like me'.

i know i am late with this one but this is so obviously set up I have to comment. NO parent with a carrier like that (I am one of the many) wears it on their back. It's meant to be worn up front, for obvious safety comfort and care reasons.

Staged it may be...

But what about the message?

Whites and non-white adults have their backs turned to each other whilst their children reach out to each other...

Powerful message, I feel...

Dear Gerry - do you think that -

the fact that all the commentors above ONLY saw BABIES
(except for Jahteh who saw coke)
and did not see colour
(I didn't give it a nanothought)
indicates that we lot are OK ?
we are.
we are all OK on the colour score.
We have to keep fkg each other till the world is one colour.

We are f*cking each other.

With wars of "liberation", with "free trade", with "aid", with "freedom" and with "democracy". We're liberating the world to death! No culture is safe from this consumer-driven virus called Western MegaCorp Culture. And Christianity has cunningily chosen to ride this beast to the finish line. Wow!

But I don't think that's how you meant it, Brownie... :-)
