While You Were Planted...
...Before the telly, swilling your adult beverage of choice and rooting for that team that begins with an S....
We at Big Lizards know how forgetful our readers can be; it's easy to forget trivia like war and peace, crime and punishment, feast and famine, and other works of Russian literature in the face of such a monumental event as a bunch of men suffering from gigantism chasing each other around a cow pasture in pursuit of a peculiar, little pointed object. As a public service -- I did get the L in there, didn't I? yes, of course -- Big Lizards offers this recap of the momentous posts you may have missed, you who often neglect your blogism on days that (like your favorite team) begin with an S.
Saturday, February 4th, 2006: ten days before you show your love by buying your sweatheart a pipe rack...
- Swamp Samurai
Here is one of those "humanitarian" reconstruction efforts of the Coalition of the Swilling: the Japanese are restoring the Iraqi Marsh, whence the Marsh Arabs were driven away by Saddam in one of his numerous crimes against humanity.
- Abbott and Costello Meet Radical Prophetism
The third and (God help us!) last sequel of our argument why, even though we must of course stand up against the rioting Moslems addled by the Cartoon-Mohammed Affair, it was neverthless probably not a keen idea to publish (and republish, and re-republish) the cartoons in the first place.

- Iran Strategies 2: Beachhead Bingo
Wherein Big Lizards offers the second in an open-ended series of possible military actions we could take to prevent the Iranian mullahs from developing nuclear intermediate-range ballistic missiles; this installment suggests an occupation of a strip of borderland within Iran on the Iraq border, which we introduced to great cheers from the readers. Oh, wait -- I think those were jeers, not cheers. Close enough for blogist work!
- More Media Hysteria? Only Time Will Tell
Time Magazine identifies yet another fundamental right that the Bush administration is violating: the right of dark-hued people never to be suspected of any crimes.
- Hugh Holds His Breath -- For Three Quarters
In which we speculate on the peculiar position that the fabled Mr. Hewitt must have found himself in during the Big Game... a position normally found only among budgerigars.
And that scant screech of five blogposts is all we managed to produce this week-end.
(A screech is the proper collective noun for blog posts, like a pride of lions, a murder of crows, an exaltation of larks, or a piteousness of doves. Other well-known collective nouns include: a pillage of Goths, a Depeche Mode of Goths, a bombast of senators, a keg of Kennedys, a garble of Bushes, a smear of Democrats, a revolt of Republicans, a loot of lobbyists, a buck of banks, a condescension of Clintons, a lout of Lotts, a misery of mullahs, and a process of Palestinians.)

Well it is true that I was supporting a team beginning with S but that would be Scotland who beat France in the 6 nations - a far more interesting sport.
Anyway surely it is a bomb of Palestinians?
Oh and you forgot a coward of Blairs given that neither PM Tony nor Police Chief Ian seems able to actually summon up the courage and arrest Muslim protestors who incite murder while they are good at rounding up anyone else who makes a peep of protest - see http://eureferendum.blogspot.com/2006/02/defining-moment.html and related links
