Bet it can't do Tommy Cooper
Bet it could!

If...

...what exactly...?

Where did it learn these mimics in the first place...?

Keep going back to what late dad said, when I was around 16 and lamenting how life, the universe springing up from nowhere, et al, didn't make any sense.

'The more you know, the more you realise you don't know'.

That includes the chameleon as well!

A science lecturer at the place where I worked always said to a class of new students "The more we discover about the universe we live in, the more mysterious it becomes."

Split the difference with you...

...it's just annoying as [email protected]&#...!

Great thing is though, we can express any such sentiments here, or in any other forum and the feedback is often seriously invaluable - helps place all manner of things in perspective!

Much like the recent Kyle related suicide, I'm surprised it hasn't happened before now.

There's almost humour there, almost, but ultimately it falls on the side of child sexual-exploitation, extreme bad taste and trivialising genoicide.
Also stupidity. Nobody even remotely connected with that issue or story will ever get a job with any Jewish organisation or employer.

Satirical college magazine, The Harvard Lampoon, apologises after printing a mock photo of Anne Frank in a bikini to show how hot she would have looked had she not died.

Caption: "Add this to your list of reasons why the Holocaust sucked"

Mad to publish it:

Aren't the Harvard Lampoon notorious assholes anyway? They were back in the 1970s and 80s, anyway.

There will be a ghostly voice whispering "heavy metal is no good for you, start listening to proper music like take that and maddonna"
I should like to clarify that I gave you half a like. Whilst your post was humorous, I do not endorse the listening of heavy metal, take that or madonna.

.. reminds me of the time some advertising agency was paid a similar fee to design that Conservative party tree logo and then were paid another fortune to have the colour of the tree only ever so slightly changed ..

Well I suppose you have to have a hobby...

Someone Is Drawing Gargantuan Dongs Across Inner Melbourne Parks
If Art Attack taught us nothing else it’s that the ground is merely a giant flat canvas upon which heaving great creative works can be painted; works that look like utter garbage close up, but become stunning vistas upon zooming way out. To that end, some modern day Rembrandt has been slathering gargantuan dicks across the lawns of several inner-Melbourne parks, leaving local council officials absolutely baffled.

Not even slightly amusing.

"When the United States Army Air Forces dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Senkichi Awaya (Mayor of Hiroshima) was eating breakfast with Shinobu (his son) and Ayako (his 3 year old grand-daughter). All of them are believed to have died instantly."

Tell it to my late maternal grandfather, a military ambulance driver/medic who was a Japanese prisoner of war.

We all treasure his Burma Star.

What I don't understand is why the US simply didn't lay siege to Japan. By the time they dropped the A-bombs they had destroyed the Japanese navy and air force, and given they had at their disposal the US fleet and the UK fleet freed from the war in Europe they could simply have been starved out. It still seems like a war crime to me.
