Cooties?

OK, I have to admit that I've been withholding these from you. They're from last Thursday, and I just can't figure out what is up with Ursula and her Chancellor pal in these pictures:

For reals! What. Is. Going. On!? And can we see that jacket closer, please?



These people look like they're in pain. Ursula, the usually affable giantess, almost seems to be burdened by gravity, perhaps for the first time! Oh, Ursula, honey, please just take a spa week, OK? Because you totally deserve it. God, she didn't even barely accessorise.

Ew, I mean, look at them:



Poor Ursula! Poor Chancellor Guy! What have they been up to? I think they better Lysol™ that table when they're done.

That itchy hair thing is a bit of a turn-off.
Some good conditioner might help that condition.

Perhaps its like baseball and they are sending each other secret signals? She's despondent at the end, because he totally did get what she was trying to say.

It might be allergies. Also, the yellow, as bold as we might expect from out beloved diplomazon, just isn't working, especially with that make-up choice.

She looks totally washed out, which happened before when she chose a truly garish vermillion thing a while back.

But Princess is right, as always. We want out Ursula happy. Anything else is just plain wrong!

Ok, so I love the pony and am a loyal, perhaps even obsessed daily reader. And I can even appreciate the stylishness of Ursula's scarves.

But I'm always a little skeptical of Austrian politicians. Austrians elected Waldheim and Haider--nazi and neo-nazi. Pony readers often praise Ursula's industriousness in comparison to Condi's. Maybe. But what is she actually trying to accomplish? Austria led opposition to Turkey's entry into the EU, because, as muslims they were "too different culturally", Miss Ursula was very much involved in the anti-Turkey campaign. Maybe she's not so different from Condi after all?

Maybe Ursula's upset because she's feeling a little guilt? I don't mean to spoil the fun, but I'm just saying.

OMG -- are these pics evidence of parliamentary cooties?

Here in America, politicians signal sexual interest with their feet. I guess Austrian signals are different.

Love Jess's interpretation!

Perhaps some terrorist put itching powder into the air vents, and poor Ursula and that little short guy were the victims. Don't they know that if they scratch, the terrorists win?

Zoe... we are all mites in the presence of Our Ursula.

I prefer ham to turkey anyway.

They both just found out that GWB invited them to a Christmas White House party and that Condi was doing the seating arrangements.
