Grand Duchy of Ratburger

I fear that Dime is a sock without a country. What forsaken place can we claim for him? Here’s one possibility. https://www.theguardian.com/theguardian/from-the-archive-blog/2013/may/28/rockall-nick-hanckock-archive?CMP=share_btn_tw

  1. From the link.

    “It is a dreadful place. There can be no place more desolate, more despairing, more awful to see in the world”.

    Richard, I am not interpreting this as kindness. Well, at least it isn’t the Dominican Republic with its own mini bar.

  2. But it’s already claimed, by the British no less!  Just ask the Argentinians what happens when you try to take over one of their windswept islands.

    I’d suggest Elephant Island.  It is the territory of no country (although there are long-standing claims by three countries, which is in a way better), is much larger, has varied terrain, and reports are that the hunting and fishing are good.  I hear it’s delightful in July.

    We can’t send him there. Rockall has no dryer. What’s a sock without a dryer?

    Slowly twisting in the wind.

    I just can’t imagine our dear leader pinned to a clothes line flapping about.

    Richard can’t imagine me any other way. He likes to launder money.
