…habsburg, 28 july; uk, 4 aug1914; ww 1 and all that…

…and, yes, the US on 17 Dec 1917…

As the march to insanity continues in quickstep and we await a happy failure to make that grave misstep, we take a look back – with some humour, albeit black. Crooked Timber does us the good deed. In this most folk would remember one actor in particular who had headlined a tv show in the US but famous in the UK for stuff like Jeeves and Wooster. Of course, Rowan Atkinson as Black Adder, priceless…

Even in the humour, a lesson. Wouldn’t want to face a machine gun without this. Poignant stuff.
