Not sure how I'd feel about this sculpture if I were a British woman.

Looks the way I've pictured an inhabitant of Jinx, one of the worlds in Larry Niven's "Known Universe" series.

He seems to have had a problem with the British bombing Das Vaterland into submission.

I think it was Mad Magazine that was looking forward to the future. It depicted a Russian child not knowing who Khrushchev was. One of the parents looks it up in the latest Soviet Encyclopedia, and the entry says "A minor art critic of the mid-twentieth century."

Odd that the caption gives his date of death as 1967 and says the sculpture "will be displayed ... in 1951." So was it written before 1951 or after 1967?

Margret Thacher never looked better.

The hybrid super soldier project was coming along nicely!
