India Halts Pakistan Border Goose-stepping Ahead Of Talks .

Thank goodness. I can see how dueling silly walks might interfere with peace talks.

"Walk like man..."

Who said human beings were so far removed from the animal kingdom. I'm just surprised those goofy cock hats aren't 8 feet tall by now.

jill: sure looks like it.

phoenix: it all breaks down to displays & posturing.

woman: life goes on. It's easier when you have a sense of humor :-)

Yeah, let's enjoy life before the burqa shipments arrive.

They sort of look like peacocks, don't they? :p

Ah, yes. The late great PG Wodehouse would be so proud...(so's Mr. Basil Fawlty, aka John Cleese) for that matter.

I love the Ministry of Silly Walks! My favorite part is when the secretary comes in with the tea tray. That is just great stuff. These guys would fit right it!

My whiny vote-casting experience is up. I'm feeling pretty over it now, but it about killed me yesterday!

Just a silly observation, but that thing on the Indian dude's head would make a wonderful Thanksgiving centerpiece.

They look like roosters... I bet the "goal" is to kick you foot higher than your opponent.

cube said...

brooke: you say peacocks, eyes said roosters... both ostentatious male birds. I'm seeing a pattern here ;-)

steve k.: the photo triggered those thoughts for me as well.

jen: Cleese & company came to my mind too :-) BTW I'm glad you survived to tell the tale.

tlm: The questions is, will Martha Stewart have time to market them in time for Thanksgiving?

eyes: I think a more fun goal would be, "Who can kick the silly hat off the head of his opponent first."
