They're All Just Satellites of Planet Ursula

Aw, see how all the tiny people cluster around Ursula? She's like an island of refreshing lemon meringue. Everybody's smiling, laughing, and why not? It's the Anti-Condi, yay! I bet they were ALL wearing pastels within hours. For the affable Austrian giantess, being foreign minister is all about making friends and bringing people together:

There is really only one thing that I can say, the words must be borrowed...

"Who can turn the world on with her smile?
Who can take a nothing day, and suddenly make it all seem worthwhile?
Well it's you girl, and you should know it
With each glance and every little movement you show it."

FranIAm beat me to it, but as impressed as I am with the height of Our Ursula (and for those keepign score at home, I am VERY impressed), it's the smiles that always get me. People are happy to be around her, just as I or any other Pony Pal would be.

As a BIG girl, I'm counting on the lovely pastel princess Ursula to make being a giantess fashionable! If anyone can.....

Scary to consider that she's just as intelligent, sophisticated and worldly wise as our Condi, but she uses it in positive way. Wait, maybe she's more intelligent, sophisticated and worldly wise than the frightened cynical punks who run US foreign policy. Ya think so?

She's like Maria, leading the Von Trapp children in song!

It's no wonder Kinga is wearing a scarf in homage!
