Saturday Open Thread: Which is Which?

Today’s Open Thread Question:

Can you tell which one of these photos is which?

Filed on behalf of MOTUS by Little Mo from the sanctuary bunker.

Which one of these ill fitting dresses did Lady M choose for the Medal of Honor ceremony forArmy Special Forces Staff Sergeant Robert J. Miller, and which is the picture of the Diplomatic Corp reception last week?

If you’re having trouble choosing that’s understandable. Butt here’s a little clue: in this case,  past performance is no guarantee of future results.

Bonus question: dress or drapes? Which doesn’t belong and why?

Hello Dolly

Today’s Open Thread Question:

Will you act today without delay?

Filed on behalf of MOTUS by Little Mo from the sanctuary bunker.

With all the dark November clouds on the horizon, it’s hard for Big Guy to find a ray of sunshine and HOPE here in Big White. Lady M, on the other hand, needs SPF-Gazillion to keep from burning up.

First there was MOTUS Wonder Woman story which gave MO the boost she needed to jump in front of Lady Gaga, DOprah, Beyonce, Ellen and every other babe on the planet including Sarah-cuda, and take the title “Most Powerful Woman in the World.”


Forbes: “Most Powerful Woman in the World”

Now, maybe the biggest, most important honor ever: Franklin Mint has commemorated Lady M’s historic FLOTUSency with a limited edition, 100% vinyl doll! Here’s what Franklin Mint says:

“In the same way that clothes are a language without words, Michelle Obama speaks volumes.”

michelles-bigg-ass“MO Volume”

Franklin Mint chose the “official portrait” of Lady M taken in the Blue Room, wearing Michael Kors:

“Her statuesque beauty and astonishing physique seemed to perfectly punctuate the formal ambience of the White House, while she simultaneously illuminated the room with her spirited, yet gracious presence. What resulted was, by far, one of the most radiant First Lady Portraits in history.”

Franklin Mint: Michelle Obama Official White House Portrait Doll

The Lady M portrait doll is truly a work of art and comes complete with all the accessories:

“Our Michelle Obama Official White House Portrait Doll, one of the first of its kind in the world, captures all the style and substance of our iconic First Lady. A dazzling tribute to the passion and positivity of Michelle Obama and her Declaration of Fashion Independence, this remarkable creation is complete with black pumps, stud earrings, double-strand faux pearl necklace and replica steel watch.”

MOTUS reflected this “Full Doll-Body” overlay to show the extraordinarily lifelike detail, accuracy and realism Franklin Mint achieved in striking this iconic doll:

I must warn you, only 9,900 lucky people will be able to own this extraordinary collectors item. After that, the die will be broken and this historic opportunity will be lost.

MOTUS Update & Open Topic

This is Little Mo, here on behalf of MOTUS to report on events of the past couple of weeks.

First let me assure you that the danger has passed, and MOTUS is resting and recharging for her immanent return to her blog. Now for the rest of the story.

As you know, MOTUS has been fighting one or more viruses. She asks me to remind you to GET YOUR FLU SHOTS. Complications developed last week when she was not able to adequately recharge with organic products we call food but continued to keep all systems hydrated with Di-hydrogen Monoxide (H2O).

Tests were performed by our quacks (we tease them by calling them quacks) at Walter Reed on Monday. Shortly after midnight that night, our quacks called the bunker to advise that the test results were completed and analyzed and MOTUS must be taken to the emergency room. Her electrolyte concentrations of sodium and potassium had fallen to dangerous levels.

MOTUS responded to the treatments much better than expected (isn’t that the way everything goes around big White, nothing ever turns out as expected), and she returned to the bunker woozy but fully restored to normal electrolyte levels. The virus lingers, but is nearly defeated. I must at this point commend our quacks. They are very professional and extremely skilled.

MOTUS will soon be returning to the secret workstation in her sanctuary bunker, but asked me to pass along big, warm, virus-free hugs & ♥s to all of you for your kind thoughts and prayers.

Until then, Raj or I will try to post a secret topic or Open Thread regarding something going on here in Big White.

Now, let’s get back to snarking!


Today I am wondering about the rumors that Big Guy is going to dump JoeyB and promote his secretary Hill, to the position of Little vPresident.

UT0038718 Secretary Hill Reporting for Duty

Everybody is vehemently denying it, which can only mean that it is true.

The part of the scenario that’s hard for me to believe is that he would than make JoeyB his new secretary.

I don’t know, I thought a good secretary was supposed to be able to competently make coffee, take a letter, spell and add to at least 10...

I Wonder, Woman?

If you love TV, and who doesn’t, you probably already know that two new shows, in the only 2-episode long new season, have totally been cancelled: ”Lone Star” on Fox and “My Generation” on ABC. Although I never watched either one, it’s bad news for the 6 of you who got hooked on them, butt good news for all girls.

“Why is it good for girls?” you ask, because ABC is rumored to be replacing “My Generation” with a new show about a strong, independent woman, who tossed aside the big money lure of Wall Street and corporate raider law, for a life of public service. Who does that sound like?

Well, no, not Lady M. Not exactly. Butt she is one of my all time heroes:


comics-wonder_womanKick-ass gorgeous, and kick-ass tough, Wonder Woman, Yes!


Speculation has already begun as to who will snag the starring role. Leading the pack is Angelina Jolie, because of her many tough chick movie roles such as “Laura Croft: Tomb Raider”.




Also in the mix, because of her “performance” in “Transformers”, is Megan Fox.




And finally, rounding out the pack for no reason other than that she is hot, Beyonce Knowles.




If I were making the decision, I would evaluate all the contenders by comparing them to the standard set by the original non-cartoon Wonder Woman, Lynda Carter.





I would also keep my mind open for the possibility of an unknown, walk-on, dark horse candidate.

Let’s begin with temperament and character.

Wonder Woman has to be strong, tough and fearless. Anybody who has raided tombs and fought zombies (Angie), or beaten back a pack of space alien transformers (Megan) gets my nod on that one.

I don’t want to rush to judgment, butt I think we can drop Beyonce out of the running right now. I’m not saying that singers can’t be tough, and we all know that music and a lovely voice hath charms that soothe the savage beast, but it won’t kick its ass.

Now let’s take a closer look at the standard for an analysis of the optics:




Mmm Hmmm, mmm hmmm, mmm hmmm. Ok, I think I’ve got it.


CroftBikiniL_468x668 angelina_jolie_lara_croft_01


Angie seems to have what it takes,


Megan_Fox megan-fox-wonder-woman


Megan too...and look, she even dressed up for the part!


I don’t know, maybe it’s just my lingering circuit disruptions, butt i just can’t decide. Or, maybe it’s because there’s someone else, not in the official running, you know, that dark horse, walk-on candidate I’m keeping my mind open for. Someone who, with a little tweak here and a teensy boost there, might be just perfect for the role...

So, I guess you all saw Big Guy announce the CHANGEs to our team. Butt what did you really see?

He Can Absorb It: Yes He Can!

So, I know everybody heard Big Guy tell Woody (Bob Woodward) that we can “absorb” another terrorist attack, even one as big as 911. Well, that got a lot of people wee weed up around Big White and, from what I hear, around your neighborhoods too.

Now, everybody still on the Team, which is pretty much Gibssy (for now), ValJar, TOTUS & me, are trying to “put it in context” so the voters won’t be hating on us in November.

The leading concept so far is an adaptation of the “SHAM WOW” poster that Jill at iOwnTheWorld  photoshopped Big Guy into.  BigFurHat posted it a while ago and, like any good capitalist pig, is selling on mugs t-shirts, buttons and posters in his shop, which is just down the street from mine.

I don’t know, I don’t think it sells itself. But like Vince, we can’t do this all day.
