Click the link.
We have no way of knowing who bought the book.

Or who bought the Depends®.

Paul Johnson is a great writer. Modern Times is an enjoyable read.

Bob Boyd said...

I know. Its just the way it reads it kinda sounds like purchase of the day by Paul Johnson.
Thought it was kinda funny.
Nevermind.

We can see clearly that there are no Depends in your life. Unless they're sexier than I've been led to believe.

You're welcome.

There's a gap in my knowledge base around the little tussle between the early Zionists and the Brits.

Paul Johnson is the man.

Also, Amazon's logistics are amazing. They got that book and another book (Churchill) and a cheap calculator to my door in about 32 hours in a single package.

That's a very long history indeed.

I love messing with peoples' minds regarding that history because most people I know do know a lot about it already but they have it in bits and pieces, without a continuous story so they're easy to mess with.

This month I payed the rent as Queen of Sheba. My note said I was visiting Chip and drilled holes all over the place because you just have to. Spy and keep track and such. Don't worry, they'll all be patched.

I explained the whole thing about the rumors regarding my trip to see Solomon are all pure bullshit because it was I who spread the rumors to misdirect to begin with. For safety.

And the gifts, really, four tons of gold? Now think about about that. Who in their right mind is going to schlep that much gold that far just for a visit? Nobody, that's who. Too dangerous. You gotta be kidding. No. The gold was candy wrapped in gold foil we picked up at Walmart on the way out of Yemen and the candy tastes like goat shit too so if Chip brings any down just throw it away. It's a joke. So it the precious wood. Come'on. Wood! It was a sex toy. Out of ebony. Get it? A previous joke gift. And the precious scents were a couple bottles of Avon. That's it.

The thing is, the whole reason for this trip was to see if it's true that Jews knick off the tips of their pee-pees. That's freaky innit. Who would do such a thing? They'd have to be positively mad. I had to see this for myself so I go, "Hey, go see Solomon."

His little bastard runt Rehoboam was running all all over the place tearing everything up and Solomon shut him up in his apartment, "Oh Rehoboam, how expansive thou art!" Ha ha ha ha ha what an ul-ta-ruh maroooon. So that was that and I left.

We have no way of knowing who bought the book.

Cedarford's doing opposition research.

Baron Zemo said...

That's not true. We all chipped in to get it for him.

An belated Chanukkah gift.

or as I like to call it, "the secret history of western civilization."

That is an excellent book. I heard him interviewed one time and he said that he, a Catholic, wrote the book to learn more about the topic. He said, "If you want to learn about a subject, write a book about it."

Read the book several years ago, EXCELLENT. One key point from the book: anti-semitism has been alive and well for two millennia.

"When in doubt, blame the Jews"

I would recommend, highly, anything Johnson has written. Modern Times is great as is The Intellectuals.

Crunchy Frog said...

So if someone uses the portal to get a bunch of stuff on pre-order, do you get the kickback in several discrete chunks, or all at once?

Experiment underway.

I bought that book for my Kindle while I was in Israel in October. Shabbat Shalom!

You're welcome. Don't spend it all in one place.
