    Love the “Canister!”

    FYI, the “She Wouldn’t Surrender” cover appears locked inside Facebook. For those who are not Facebook users, I assume it’s the same as this vintage cover:

      I never realized that the gold standard of honoring Confederate heroes/heroines was to post fake nekkid pictures of them. Should I be working on a Photoshop of Robert E. Lee showing off “Little Bobby”?

      Given his content, I think the better analogy might be kudzu.

    I just noticed the gun in Belle’s hand; if I were that Federal soldier I’d probably be dead by now.
