Nice find on the 'family' connexions

2 [c] - a guess

3 [b]
It appears to be a Xmas present judging by the tree. It looks a bit tall for Shorty to decorate so I'll go for SurGeon Sawers

4 [c]
History will likely be rewritten and we will be surprised to find out that a team of Palestinian children did it, and now have all disappeared to live in an array of large cities to carry out more acts of violence. They were all trained by Hassan ben Sabbah who has never died and has a large underground base powered a nuclear sub that they rescued from the bottom of the sea etc etc

5 [B]

6 [c]
The girl in the blue bikini looks as if she is sporting the Kazakh flag on her backside

The answer to 2. is C)

Pauline Neville-Jones.and Shami Chakrabarti in the same secretive little club - who would have thought it?

and Betty Rubble's is a natural kind of Beauty which scorns peroxide and implants

and here's a link to that chilling DIY nuclear bomb manual discovered by the BBC's John Simpson...

"Any left over Plutonium dust is excellent as an insect repellant. You may wish to keep the substance in a lead box if you can find one in your local junk yard, but an old coffee can will do nicely"

which makes Simpson either an MI6 stooge or a complete divot, or both. Either of which, in a decent world, should see Simpson out on his rear end

I knew it was you. You broke my heart, Fredo.

I refuse to take the remainder of the test as I feel that it is culturally, racially, religiously, and economically biased. I am offended and will be contacting the ACLU/Amnesty International.

I'm ditto-ing Hubris.

As for Cercle Pinay, I've only ever seen it mentioned over at ISGP thick in a discussion of Belgian paedophiles etc.

Is it poor of me to assume that 'Le Cercle' = 'pack of paedophiles'? Or just common sense?

Hubris said...

You cannot Ditto Hubris - Hubris is unDittoable

nobody said...

Sorry Hubris, shan't do it again.

Hubris said...

It was not a 'Thou SHALT NOT.. . .. ', Nobody - rather it was merely an observation ;-)

(Hence the name :)
