Ursula Meets Tiny War Criminal

Ursula opened her golden drawer and selected one of her mightiest scarves for the event, her meeting with Henry Kissinger, a man I'm told was kinda the Condi of his day. Whatever! Not all career diplomats are dwarfed by the mighty Austrian, however:

I know I have no marsupial equivalent, but perhaps I, too, have a Dutch counterpart...

I know UberUrsula has rules against crushing humans like the bugs that we are, but she couldn't make an exception in special cases? I mean he's not only evil and tiny, but incredibly old. Like when a dog has the bad hip and the mange, it might be better to just... you know.

Why does Ursula look so poised, relaxed and confident during these grin n' grip shots while Condi always looks so robotic and forced?
There's got to be more to it than Condi actually being a robot.

P.S. Let's not pile on Kissinger too much--he's been so pitiful since his neck removal surgery.

Looks like the mighty Ursula was wearing a skirt. A very rare event that cries out for documentation...

H.:Vell, mein U-guuuurrrrl, did you know I secrutly bombed ein whole country on der Q.T.?

U.: Nein.

H. Vell, mein mighty Plassnik, did you know that power is an aphrodisiac and I am verrrrrry powerfulllll?

With Site Meter technology, I can find how people got to my webpage. A recent visitor went to Google with the request "Ursula Plassnik nude" and got to my page, where he or she was ultimately disappointed.

I repeat: No nude pictures of Ursula Plassnik at my website!

Thank you. That is all.

Ursula has such a transcendent air--I half expect her to bounce Kissie on her knee. She can also swat him if he gets out of hand.

Zomg, the Dutch guy's name is Maxime. I repeat, one of the only people the same height as Ursula is named Maxime.

Maybe I'm the only one who had to suffer through Latin in high school and who therefore finds this amusing?

sfmike said...

Napoleonic Dr. Strangelove vs. Maxime the Dutch Stud is a magnificent juxtaposition that has sent my mind reeling. The fact that it's Ursula at her most Andress framing the what-is-not-like-the-other compositions is absolute perfection.

Brava, Princess.

You totally didn't undersell the scarf...though, strangely, it's ranged away from scarfishness into Hebrew prayer shawl territory, now in Plassnikolor!

Fran said...

Ursula looks so calm and relaxed, practically breezy unlike Dr. Ferragamo for a multitude of reasons.

I am guessing that frequent and playful "relations" with other humans may be the key.

Toriko said...

My husband has just discovered Ursala (I have girl crush on her too) and I believe that we will have to make one of those lists of famous people that the SO is allowed to have sex with. I think Ursala will be on both of our lists. We love the scarf.

Europeans are so much happier than Americans. They're not carrying around all that self righteousness.
