A Friday cute moment

Timothy Kincaid

June 8th, 2012

The Telegraph ran a really stupid article about some completely bogus poll (biased language – push questions – meaningless sample) paid for by Catholic Voices (why are they such liars? Really, do they honestly think that God is hunky-dory with deception in his name?) And the author didn’t question a single claim. I could go on for pages about just how invalid this is, but it’s Friday so I’ll just let it go for this thread (though I may take it up elsewhere). but you can see it here.)

However, they did use this photograph. And, considering that the big news yesterday was about Denmark voting for marriage, without reading the article I responded to the pic. And my immediate thoughts were, “How cute.. and, yep, they’re Danes.”

It’s called “The Telegraph” because that’s about how up-to-date they are.

Adorable picture.

Why are they so much like Danes? Is it the marzipan-like complexion?

Tusind Tak.

To me these two have a look of unabashed happiness. They have absolutely no body-awareness or concern about what anyone else thinks. They are just perched there on their cake in dorky haircuts with too-big smiles completely enjoying their day. Definitely Danes.

And that explains my haircut. Though, with how much I paid for these veneers I get to grin.

It’s one of those words I usually avoid using, but it is the only one that fits them; they are adorable. And this, from your link: “..passed with the support of 85 of the country’s 111 MPs.” makes all Danes seem especially warming and cuddly to me right now. How wonderful it would be to see a similar three quarters plus vote in Congress.

“Meaningless Sample” – Do explain
“Biased Language” – Do explain
“Push Questions” – Do explain

Seriously Tim, what is wrong with the poll apart from the fact that you don’t like the answers?

I don’t enough Danes. It just brings Ren & Stimpy to mind for me:

My analysis of the poll was provided on another thread. As was indicated above by “you can see it here“.
