    Weddings are often filled with unexpected moments that become cherished memories for both the couple and their guests. However, one couple had a truly unique and hilarious experience during their special day, thanks to a saucy bird. In a stunning photograph captured by Tara Lilly, a whisky jack landed on the bride's head just as the groom began to recite his vows. This comical moment not only brought joy and laughter to the wedding ceremony but also earned Lilly the prestigious title of 2023 International Wedding Photographer of the Year.
  • A Babylon Bee headline about Disney's depravity had to be fact-checked on X because "the article is believable" 😂

    Not The Bee ^ | Dec 4, 2023 | Staff
    Sometimes you get a wake-up call and realize that the world is, in fact, beyond parody. This Babylon Bee article went viral on X after a user screenshotted the headline (with the Babylon Bee URL in plain view!!) and posted it as a response to Disney pulling ads from X. It's satire! It's a joke about Disney and grooming. But apparently, it's just a little too close to reality. They had to fact-check a Babylon Bee story because it's too believable that Disney is grooming kids on X!!! Man, what does that say about Disney? They've absolutely tanked their brand....

    The latest ghoulish development following the slaughter of 1,400 Jews in the Oct. 7 Israeli attack on Israel is quite a shocker. The AP, CNN, Reuters, and The New York Times used footage and photos from reporters embedded with Hamas terrorists during their slaughter of hundreds of Jews. These Western media outlets then posted the photos in their coverage of this horrendous surprise attack on Israel.
  • Red White And Blue - An Austral-American Art Form - And Teddy Roosevelt

    10/26/2023 8:56:15 PM PDT · by Ozguy1945 · 4 replies ^ | October 27th, Australian time | Ozguy1945
    Teddy Roosevelt, America's 26th president, was born on this day in 1858. (please note publication time of this post in Australia) "Red White And Blue" for me is an art form where I use those colours (from both the Australian and American flags) to create art which I hope expresses moral and other truth. What do Freepers think of this?

    A fundamental strength of conservatism is not forgetting the past out of hubris believing that we can get all new answers to everything now. When Tucker Carlson ( says: "You can say you care about America, but if you’re sending $100 billion to foreign countries right now, you’re lying" and “If something really dramatic in your country happens — like young people can’t, I don’t know, get married, you know, or buy houses or have any hope for a future that approaches, you know, the middle class upbringing they had — then you’ve got a huge problem and someone should...

    There’s an incredible new viral sensation sweeping the internet, and it’s both powerful and thought-provoking, offering a compelling snapshot of Biden’s America in disarray. So, what’s this intriguing online phenomenon?Norman Rockwell paints modern America.It’s a disturbing yet profoundly provocative modern AI tribute to Norman Rockwell, reimagining today’s disgraceful USA in Rockwell’s iconic style. Whoever conceived this idea is truly ingenious. These images are striking because they place the everyday propaganda we’re exposed to within the context of normal life, revealing the extent of how far we’ve fallen.

    I LOVE THE WORDS OF PHYLLIS SCHLAFLY: "Forcing women in or near land combat will hurt recruiting, not help." "A country isn't sovereign if we can't control who comes in and who's allowed to come in." “I think the main goal of the feminist movement was the status degradation of the full-time homemaker.” “There’s no real substitute for the care of the real mother.”

    She was born in New York City on Sept 24, 1941, and died in Tucson, Arizona, in 1998. Perhaps the greatest Beatle mum.

As his wife and as the mother to their children, she gave him the healthy base where he created what many people now see as the first two great Indie albums, “Ram”, a homage to...

    Daily Wire ^ | September 20, 2023 | By Matt Walsh
    One of the biggest distinctions between shows that are made for adults, and shows that are made for children, is that you rarely hear much about the people who make shows for children. Studios go out of their way to promote the latest “Christopher Nolan film,” or the latest action movie directed by Michael Bay or James Cameron. Adults are expected to buy tickets to see these films primarily on the basis of the famous people who worked on them. But when it comes to productions that are intended for children, you’re left in the dark. You’re really not supposed...

    The Prince says the festival is now 'just about wearing a costume to get drunk in' he Prince of Bavaria complained about the effect 'cultural appropriation' has had on Oktoberfest, bemoaning the fact that the annual German festival is 'just about wearing a costume to get drunk in.' While speaking to a local radio station, Luitpold Rupprecht Heinrich said that the focus on spectacle has caused Oktoberfest to lose its way."When I see Chinese-made folk costumes made of plastic, pseudo-costumes with tight dirndls, then the whole thing becomes a carnival," Heinrich said, per the Daily Mail.

  • Republican President James Abram Garfield - Powerful Words For Freedom

    America's 20th President, Republican James A Garfield, was assassinated in Elberon, New Jersey, at the age of 49, on September 19, in 1861. This was only six and a half months after his inauguration. He spoke powerful words for freedom: "The truth will set you free, but first it will make you miserable." "Next in importance to freedom and justice is popular education, without which neither freedom nor justice can be permanently maintained." This libertarianism is at the heart of America's soul.

    Twiggy, a.k.a. Dame Lesley Lawson, DBE, was a very unusual 1960’s fashion model, who was born on the 19th of September, 1949, in northwest suburban London to working class parents. I find her slightly strange and unique mind's thinking quite brilliant. Here are some examples: “Confusion is the best form of communication. It’s left to be unexplained.” “I want to continue to try and break the barrier between male and female.” “I think everyone should sing – it’s so good for you, as it makes you breathe deeply, and it’s good for you emotionally, too. It’s a brilliant release way...

    The worst things about life in modern Australia are terrible. Government tyranny and bureaucratic stupidity are the norms. Criminal-at-large Daniel Michael Andrews is still in power as premier of Victoria. But an underlying reality is a human cultural foundation which, while under threat, has not been entirely destroyed - not yet. This foundation includes beautiful, religious, courageous, honest people like Monica. Praise the Lord.
