Rule 5 Sunday: Columbus Day Edition

It’s that time of year again, when all manner of malcontents are coming out of the woodwork and complaining about the poor administrative skills and politically incorrect conduct of the Admiral of the Ocean Sea, going so far as to call for his day being renamed Indigenous Persons Day, or some such rot. As far as I’m concerned, all those butthurt Anglos are welcome to take their endemonised Protestant and/or atheist asses back to England, Germany, or whatever hellish heretic-filled holes their families originally came from, most of which are currently in the path of an Islamic Volkerwanderung. Serve them right. Anyhow, Columbus was originally from Genoa before he hired out to the King & Queen of Spain, and perhaps the best-known (certainly the most accomplished) actress from Italy is Sophia Loren, shown here expressing some concern that Jayne Mansfield’s huge tracts of land might erupt across the dinner table.

“Are those things secured?” she fretted.

This week I’d like to welcome Constantinople Not Istanbul to the leadoff spot with Rachel Weisz, followed by Goodstuff with Melania Trump, The Alchemist. Ninety Miles from Tyranny checks in with Hot Pick of the Late Night, Morning Mistress, and Girls with Guns; and Animal Magnetism favors us with Rule 5 Man Test Friday along with the Saturday Gingermageddon.

EBL’s herd this week includes Pepper Potts, Dana Delany, Grushenka from The Brothers Karamazov, and Imogen Carpenter.

A View from the Beach offers Down Under with Lara BingleSave The Squirrels!“Cool for the Summer”TMI From JLawGun Control Push in Wake of Roseburg ShootingsA Bella MorningSJWs Browbeat Pretty Girl into SubmissionGone Fishing (Again)Your Monday Morning WorkoutCan the Redskins Ground the Eagles?, and Not Answering the Important Questions.

Proof Positive’s Friday Night Babe is Rachel Uchitel, his Vintage Babe is the immortal Janet Leigh, Sex in Advertising is provided by Carl’s Jr., and of course there’s the obligatory 49ers cheerleader. At Dustbury, it’s Taylor Swift and Yuja Wang.

Thanks to everyone for their linkagery! Deadline to submit links to the Rule 5 Wombat mailbox for next week’s Rule 5 roundup is midnight on Saturday, October 17.

    Lief was here first.

  • Julie Pascal

    Quite right.

  • Good Stuff

    As a navigator and cartographer, I celebrate Columbus Day with gusto! While thinking Captain Wombat for providing A weekly Rule 5 site map

  • Good Stuff

    It seems everyone wants to ruin Christopher Columbus’ biggest claim to fame. This time it’s a Chinese map that is threatening to rewrite history.

    Purchased from a Shanghai dealer in 2001 by Liu Gang for a mere $500, the map shows the world—including a well-developed picture of North and South America. While text on the map indicates it was drawn in 1763, it claims to be a copy of another map drawn in 1418.

    American continent is labelled phonetically “A-me-ri-ca” (????)

    The original map was cited as belonging to the great Chinese explorer, Zheng He, whose known travels include India and eastern Africa. However, the Chinese did not have an understanding of how to create a map projection at that time. In short, they didn’t even know how to make this map when it was supposed to have been drawn.

    Right, indigenous persons’ day. Let’s celebrate a bunch of people who never figured out the wheel.

    Oxford student feminist and racialist admits to committing rape.

    At least she (I think it’s a she) has the decency to denounce and exile herself.

  • Wombat_socho

    And where was the great Norse empire in America? GREENLAND, LOL

  • Quartermaster

    Well, it sure wasn’t in Iceland.

  • Quartermaster

    Sophia Loren made the excuse that she was afraid those things would fall out. I think it was more a matter of who was the center of attention.

  • ConstantineX1

    I’m undecided who to feature this week… Maybe Natalie Portman, who I think is this generation’s Audrey Hepburn.

  • M. Thompson

    Still better than the Italians!

    (I’ll stop with the Old World cheap shots, even if they are good as jokes)

  • Steve Skubinna

    I suspect that she considered their blatant display crass and uncouth. Which it was, but that’s how we roll in America, baby!

    Exhibit A: The Kardashian/Jenner Circus.

  • ConstantineX1

    China then BURNED all their ships capable of making long range journeys not too long after Zeng He’s expedition. Which is why it doesn’t count like the Viking discovery doesn’t. All the Norse did was found colonies on Iceland and Greenland, the latter dying out completely by 1500, the former NEARLY dying out…

  • Quartermaster

    Loren was not exactly modest herself. She was more modest in thatpic, but she was known for displaying her ample cleavage a time or two.

  • Joe Guelph

    Let the late, great Jimmy Durante have the final word:
    “All I know is that when Columbus discovered America, it *stayed discovered*!”

  • Good Stuff

    Norsemen built fishing/hunting/logging camps, not colonies

  • Durasim

    Any happy day in the chronicle of transsexual incarceration.

    You’re such a nice dego. Aren’t you supposed to be blowing some “father”‘s joy stick?

  • Wombat_socho

    Bye, Joe. Also, learn the difference between Spaniards and Italians, you ignorant twatwaffle.

  • armenia4ever

    Yes, because Iceland, Greenland, and Newfoundland don’t count.

    Neither does the various Kingdoms they conquered and/or established in Britain.
