Silly Site o' the Day

Hard to be silly on Remembrance Day, it feels a little too trivial. Then again, if the people in power insist on being silly by remembering the horrific events of four years ago by organizing an oxymoronic restrictive "freedom walk" and concert (see, we should have listened to them when they warned us "freedom isn't free," not to mention "war is peace" and "ignorance is strength") rather than something more appropriate like, say, a mass candlelight vigil or a somber ceremony at the Pentagon or WTC site, who are we to gainsay that trend? Other than by, you know, blogging about their atrocities every day of our lives. Anyway, in honor of Julia's yellow raspberry bush about which I wrote last night, and via Hanan Levin, it's the Fruit Salad Tree Company, subsequently debunked by the Beeb (also via Hanan).
