Check out that orange comb-over. Those look like Donald Trump socks to me.

While many of us would love the chance to sock the Donald I doubt that Justin Trudeau would stoop that low.

    (And I really think that Chewy deserves an apology!)

<<Chewbacca's creation as a "gentle, hairy, non-English-speaking co-pilot" was inspired by George Lucas seeing his own dog sitting up on the passenger seat of his car. It is said that Chewbacca's name is derived from собака (sobaka), the Russian word for dog.

Kashyyyk (ka-SHEEK, KASH-ik or ka-SHEE-ike), also known as Wookiee Planet C, is a planet in the Star Wars universe. It is the tropical, forested home world of the Wookiees. The home of the Wookiees was originally intended to be the forest moon of Endor which plays a key role in the plot of the sixth film of the series, Return of the Jedi. However, Lucas decided that since the Wookiee Chewbacca was clearly proficient with advanced technology (i.e. he was pilot and mechanic of the spaceship the Millennium Falcon and he repaired the damaged droid C-3PO), it would be confusing to show the Wookiees with a primitive, "stone age" culture on Endor.>>

That time Putin brought his dog to a meeting to scare Angela Merkel
Business Insider Jul. 7, 2017, 8:59 AM 22,429

<<Throughout their relationship as world leaders, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Russian President Vladimir Putin have shared an understanding. After all, Putin served as a KGB officer in Germany from 1985 to 1990. "When Putin and Merkel meet, they sometimes speak in German, and Putin corrects his own interpreter to let Merkel know that nothing is lost on him," George Packer of The New Yorker wrote in a profile of Merkel. During discussions about energy supplies at Putin's home in Sochi back in 2007, the Russian president called his black lab, Koni, into the room with Merkel. From The New Yorker (emphasis added): "As the dog approached and sniffed her, Merkel froze, visibly frightened. She'd been bitten once, in 1995, and her fear of dogs couldn't have escaped Putin, who sat back and enjoyed the moment, legs spread wide. 'I'm sure it will behave itself,' he said. Merkel had the presence of mind to reply, in Russian, 'It doesn’t eat journalists, after all.' ...">>
