Came across some adorable crewel embroidery on tumblr:

It's common knowledge that you secretly want to be born in early 17th century Russia.  As a serf or a royal, I know not.  Chances are serf.

Reminds me of an Ostrov scene.

And the text below "Terrorism within Church".



It's from this article: http://dveri.bg/wau4w
It was a joke on the 1st of April and I'm touched, as this joke actually happened 2 years ago in Polish Church...

Remember that pictures also have to follow the rules about profanity/obscenity. I will give you the benefit of the doubt that you didn't notice, but please be mindful of it in the future.

Just because he is a politician doesn't mean the subject should turn to politics. It is just a picture that makes me happy that we have a prime minister that is as energetic and as young as him. Regardless of what I think of his policies. Unlike the "United" States of America, we don't tend to hate every politician that disagrees with us.

In principle I agree with you. And like you, I'm glad he's energetic (though not sure his youth is an asset). And no, I certainly don't hate him - let's just say my thoughts about him remind me of why I need to continually repent  :). And it is a cute picture BTW.
