    Some silliness is mere a simple joke of a character, turned to be a Comedy of all time. Chaplin did that!

    Very good Chris. We are loaded with foibles these days.

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Yes, Chaplin would have a field day making movies today.

      • Hyperion said,

        He’d have to talk and that might be something he had to get used to. πŸ˜€

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Yes.

        Although he was good in The Great Dictator. Had a very nice speaking voice in fact.

        A brilliant satire on Hitler and Mussolini.

      • Hyperion said,

        They need to replay that for every generation often enough.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Yes, they do.

        The first time I saw it was in a repertory film theatre in Edmonton at Halloween back when I was a kid.

        I went with my dad.

      • Hyperion said,

        I wonder if YouTube has it? They have everything. πŸ˜€

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        I imagine You Tube has it.

      • Hyperion said,

        I’ll check later. After I finish searching for Sherrielock’s adventures in London. πŸ˜€

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        I think that particular video crashed due to the excessive number of hits on it. πŸ˜‰

      • Hyperion said,

        LOL! No doubt πŸ˜€ It won’t be long before the pornographers and scammers are on to the massive search engine hits and insert themselves at the top of the list.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Yes, I hear the Bill Clinton Foundation has already inserted itself at the top of the list- speaking of pornographers and scammers. πŸ˜€

      • Hyperion said,

        They are the poster children for evil endeavors. They donated money to their charity that in turn gave them large sums of money for their support of the charity, all tax free of course.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Bill and Hillary!

        The Undead couple that just won’t go away!

      • Hyperion said,

        They just keep haunting us with their evil doing. I’m sure a pact with the Great Horned One has given them protection.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Yes, occult historians will note that the Great Horny One did indeed make a pact with the Great Horned One! πŸ˜€

      • Hyperion said,

        Which inevitably led to the spooged blue dress caper.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Which wouldn’t have happened had he been wearing the Great Horned One’s condom protection. πŸ˜€

      • Hyperion said,

        Ahhh The foibles of forgotten coverage during the dance with dragons has fouled a many a fashionable decolletage.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Out, out damned spot! as Lady MacBeth would say.

      • Hyperion said,

        The Dragon Sister magic mushroom cleaner to the rescue.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        It works like magic.

      • Hyperion said,

        LOL! πŸ˜›

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        πŸ˜€

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Oh by the way, Daniel, I just sent you an email.
