Your Mandarin has taken the time out of his busy day performing experiments on replacing the creamy filling in Twinkies with a synthetic polymer – although some would say there really is no difference – to award the coveted and prestigious “Bootie.”
And the award goes to the London 2012 Olympic Organizers, London Mayor Boris Johnson, and anti-gun activist Danny Bryan for their decision to exclude free tickets to children for any of the Olympic shooting events.
That’s right, we need to protect the children !!!1111eleventy!!!111!!!! from the evil influence of guns. Can you imagine the emotional distress that would befall these innocent children seeing that poor defenseless clay pigeon being torn asunder – no doubt by some evil white man who might also believe in God.
Your Mandarin has long ago realized that the Britain of Winston Churchill has succumbed to the demasculinzation efforts of the Progressives to become a society of perpetual children dependent on the state for their every need. But where does this end? Should the children also not be allowed to watch boxing, Judo, fencing, the javelin throw?
With this kind of mentality your Mandarin wonders how much longer before the Olympic Committee does away with the Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals and just gives everyone a trophy for participating. Because as every Progressive will tell you, “Everyone is a winner.”
Your Mandarin does agree with President Obama when he says that we should look to the examples of Europe, but not as a model to strive for but rather as a warning of what the Progressives have planned for America.
The Mandarin, whose real name is 吏恆, joined the order in 1309, and introduced the Gormogons into England during the 18th Century.
The Mandarin enjoys spending time with his pet manticore, Βάρἰκος, or Barry (who can be found in the Bestiary). When not in the Castle…well, frankly, nobody is quite sure where he goes.
The Mandarin popularized the fine art of “gut booting,” by which he delivers a powerful kick to the stomach of anyone that annoys him. Although nearly universal today, the act of gut booting or threatening someone or something with a gut boot is solely due to him.
