In Which Our Intrepid Blogger Ties a Knot in Putin's Dick


Magic has always been the power of the powerless.”

(Bruner Soderberg)


Gods: where is a suicide bomber when you need one?

In the technical language of magic, a ligature is a spell of binding: in particular, the binding of a man's sexual potency.

(Whether or not there exists a female equivalent, I don't know. Reply hazy, try again later.)

To ligate is to tie off with a ligature; the act itself is ligation. Ligature refers specifically to the cord with which one does the binding. The word comes from Latin: perhaps the Red Crests, themselves no mean imperialists, were especially adept at this particular magical technique.

I suppose that, in a way, it's consoling to be reminded that, when it comes to politics, Americans have no corner on either narcissism or stupidity. (Even considering Putin's longstanding inferiority complex vis à vis the West, though, outsmarting the Trumpster is still a pretty low bar of achievement.)

Still, when it comes to despicable, you've got to admit that Vovchik's right up there with the Donny-boy himself. A man who stoops to poisoning his enemies really can't sink much lower.

Compared to cowardice like that, what is an act of magic? Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin, man without honor, I tie a knot in your dick.

Now back away from Ukraine, and stand down.

Poet, scholar and storyteller Steven Posch was raised in the hardwood forests of western Pennsylvania by white-tailed deer. (That's the story, anyway.) He emigrated to Paganistan in 1979 and by sheer dint of personality has become one of Lake Country's foremost men-in-black. He is current keeper of the Minnesota Ooser.
