Ooooh, pretty colors


1. This is a real photograph and not, as you may have thought, a mescaline-Xanax-TidyBowl fueled hallucination that Al Gore's kid had.

2. In Soviet Russia, Rainbow Tastes You!

3. ORA: Opus and Cutter John soon realized they were way off course, and would probably never find the the South African ambassador.

4. Back in the 90's, even Willy Wonka tried that "crazy billionaire ballooning around the world" thing.

5. Budget cuts at Delta go from bad to worse.

While Gallant enjoyed the view, Goofus readied his rifle.

Still smarting from A380 delays, Airbus fetes its latest offering.

ORA: Directed harmonics had destroyed the Crystaline Entity. Now they had to deal with its much more ornery sibling, the Helium Helix.

♪ The war machine springs to life
Opens up one eager eye
Focusing it on the sky
Where 99 red, blue, orange, green, white, black balloons go by ♪

Mahmoud's nuclear device delivery system left a little to be desired.

Borrowed from Ace because I'm running low again.

Russian president Putin's latest proposal for a shared radar system was less than warmly received in Washington.

He was later struck by a Cessna 310, thus reintroducing him to gravity.

"Sir, we sent up a camera with balloons... and we were correct: It is a UFO shaped like an "AP".

Somewhere, a ballon clown is pissed at that "jerk kid with the scissors."

A Mythbusters experiment goes terribly wrong.

This is actually a metaphor for the modern DNC - a loose collection of many colored individuals, some in harmony, some in dissonance, relatively substance-less, and when the handlers let go of the tightly-held controlling strings, the whole bunch spirals off in a hopeless cacophony of differing opinion regarding the right direction...

ORA: Geez. Still floating around? That kid must be 60 years old by now!

(You had to see the end of "The Red Balloon" to get that. Of course, that's assuming you've even heard of it. They showed it in class when I was in grade school. So Im'n old fart ;-)

♪ Jesus loves all the little balloons,
All the balloons of the world.
99 red, yellow, green, blue, orange, black and white,
All are precious in His sight,
Jesus loves all the little balloons of the world. ♪

... and when Jesus comes back, He'll be in the clouds in the air. And the dead people who believed will come out of the grave and go up to be with Jesus in the sky...

(I'm going to hell, aren't I?)
