UNINDICTUM COCONSPIRATUS MUNDI:

Collage courtesy All This Is That


I'm enjoying posting past W&F installments so much, it just might become a regular feature of this blog. Especially when the occasion is appropriately befitting, such as today, the fortieth anniversary of the death of Nazi Reichsjugendf├╝hrer Baldur von Schirach. Oh, and also that one guy quitting his job. In honor of whom we presented a very special edition of W&F a couple of months ago on the occasion of the twentieth anniversary of that same fellow passing over into the realm of legend, where some say a hunched-over figure stalks the backstreets of Yorba Linda, shuffling phlebitically in ridiculously oversized Bermuda shorts, grey death-jowls flopping, alternately croaking out "braaaaaaaaains," "Beeeeeeeebeeeee," and "Chhhhheeeeecccckkkerrsssssss." Your host for these infestivities is historian, author and used-fedora salesman Braxton Hicks. So, whattayasay? Let's kick him around a little more...
