It’s a good one! Getting published is an accomplishment. I’ve never been able to get any of my LOL’s published by any of the “icanhascheezburger” blogs!

Anyhow…awhile back, I decided to do the Caturday thing as a regular feature, because I like cats and because this blog needs something to lighten it up a little bit. Normally 1389 Blog is a political and current events blog focusing mainly on the counterjihad, primarily issues and stories not covered adequately elsewhere. There’s a lot of material on Serbia and the Balkans counterjihad, as well as on free speech issues in the blogosphere. I also cover the Orthodox Christian Church as well as some aspects of the US economic and political scene. Other blog team members cover events in Cyprus, Canada, Israel, and Australia; the states’ rights movement in the US; translations of jihadi material from the Arabic; and scholarly treatments of US sociopolitical issues.

While it’s a mixed bag, it’s all pretty heavy stuff, and I was glad to find a picture that would work for providing a few laughs on Caturday that also has to do with the main topic of the blog! Thanks! 🙂

This one didn’t get on the homepage, just a few favoritings by Cheezefrends. I’m curious how you ran across it. I don’t recall it getting on the old “upcoming” page either.
Glad I could help bring a smile about such an unhappy subject. Hope the day will come when no woman has to wear anything against her will.

The link to the picture was in a comment by BuddyG on Blogmocracy. He didn’t say how he found the link, though.
