What were they thinking? They were not thinking, Freddie Mercury should not be in the line up, he is innocent smile
Ginnie Hart: EXACTLY, Frances. You just gave me a nice laugh! grin

In the fullness of Time, the faces may be familiar, but the deeds will be blurred...

Love this, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Sad but true, Ray! Thanks.
Oh my goodness! LOL at Frances!!! She's actually quite right! Great catch, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Frances gave me a good laugh when I opened up this page, Elizabeth. HA! Thanks.

What an amazing line up of mostly rogues but a few saints in there as well Ginnie. I'll leave who is which to you..
Ginnie Hart: I love how you are so politically correct in your comment, Chris. HA! And thank you.

I like your fun picture, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Lisl. Sometimes we have to see the humor in it all.

I love the line-up and the selective colouring. That is a lot of authority here....I wonder what they would say to each other, if they could have a joined lunch together, with Bacon Butties.....
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, MLMA, and oh, yes. THAT would be quite the lunch!!!

a funny observation! Obama is the onely one politician I would respect! I don't wonder that Stalin, Lenin, Berliosconi...are still present in Russia. In the 2nd line I can see Ms. Merkel.
Ginnie Hart: Ms. Merkel definitely needs to be added to the line-up to give some more balance, Philine. Indeed.

Oh, sorry, we are in Hungaria, not in Russia, but there are also big problems considering democracy and liberty! I know Hungarians persons who don't want to visit their homeland.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Philine, we're in Hungary here, but I can imagine there are some similarities...even if they might not want to admit it?

Like a meeting of the 'fun and laughs' club Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: The Fun and Laughs club. I like that, Chad. smile

So, here they are, the stars!
Great DOF, colorssmile
Ginnie Hart: The "stars" by any other name, Helys. Yes, indeed. Thanks.

Bien vu ! Bonne journée
JP
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, JP. Merci.
Just waiting for some daft tourist to come a long and pay silly money for them.
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Mick. Actually, there was a day when that tourist might have been me since I used to collect nesting dolls like this! smile

Interesting in that must of the troubles in the world could be attributed to this lot! My mum still blames the Beatles for starting the end of "proper music" smile
Ginnie Hart: One could write a book about this line-up, Alan, and people's reactions to it. smile

What a line up, I had to laugh at the modern day version of these dolls
Ginnie Hart: I know, Aussie. If we can't take a joke!
Where's Snowden?
That is tougher than Where's Wally! ;o)
Ginnie Hart: Oh dear me, LC. Let's not get started! smile

Exactly.. what were they thinking.
Ginnie Hart: (sigh)
Oh my that's so odd. A whole line of good and bad.
Ginnie Hart: Wouldn't we love an "opinion poll" on this, Pauline!

Faces of history good the bad and the very bad
Ginnie Hart: The good, bad, and the ugly, Adrian?!
At least Tony Blair isn't in the line up! The biggest monster is on the far left.
Ginnie Hart: No comment on Tony Blair, Bill. grin I'll leave him to your Englishmen to dissect.

I picture them as a singing ensemble, with the chorus in the background. smile
Ginnie Hart: I wonder if they could carry a tune together, Ruth? If so, that would be a "start" in the right direction, maybe?!
Quite funny really. I love Bin Laden's "Wanted dead or alive" but no name.
Ginnie Hart: I know, Mary. smile
Well, that's the question!

Great post.
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Sartenada...and thanks.
Really amusing. I take Obama ! LOL !
Ginnie Hart: I take him, too, Marie. smile
An update for the international market perhaps. Fun find Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: It does make you wonder, Janet. smile Thanks.
Really like how you've used the selective colouring here, Ginnie.

It appears as if someone has unscrewed President Obama's top from the bottom and has failed to line up his tie & coat in the correct position again. The others seem not to have been tampered with.
Ginnie Hart: The one next to him, too, has been fiddled with, Beverly, which may make a statement? grin Thanks.
Strange days indeed!
Ginnie Hart: Kinda hard to miss it, Frank. smile
Too fun!
Ginnie Hart: Indeed. smile

As always, I enjoy your eye for finding the interesting and usual. The line-up...perhaps it best I keep my thoughts to myself! wink I will say that the comments on your posts are some of the most fun to read of any blogs I visit. You have a dedicated following with quick wits!
Ginnie Hart: Some things definitely ARE best kept to ourselves, Sue, for sure. HA! And yes, if you only knew about our community! The thing is, many of us have met in real life. It's quite amazing!!!

Well, with Berlusconi in the throw, this prankster is quite up to date.

Why are Freddie and Michael next to each other. Any sinister reason?

Why would Dubya's bed bum be flanked by the soviet monsters? The plot thickens.

I wonder what would come out if all were participating in a conference on world peace grin
Ginnie Hart: The plot definitely thickens, Louis. Kinda makes you wonder. smile
Quite a mix of the good, the bad, and the indifferent. How strange that most of them have gone to another place, as has Mr.Berlusconie in his rightful place, a cell.
Ginnie Hart: It's quite a "meet-up," Brian, isn't it! smile
ça leur va bien smile))
Ginnie Hart: It's quite something, Keyouest, isn't it! smile
Great fun catch Ginnie! I like your treatment!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Richard. Merci.
Don't let them do that Ginnie, some of them are dangerous given that liberty grin
Nice selective colouring!
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Martin. I almost threw my hands up as though I were in front of the firing squad! smile Thanks.
What a bunch!
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Jacquelyn.

I don't think they were 'thinking'!
Ginnie Hart: I agree, Cherry! smile
Well spotted Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Sally.
Lennon and Lenin. Get it? smile
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Larry. Good one. smile
It's great fun Ginnie... i like Che the most... nice treatment....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Peter. smile
It's a pity these mamoeschka's have to be transported to modern times ;-)
Ginnie Hart: Very true, Wim...but then, there's a whole market for the "modern" look. smile

what WERE they thinking, indeed. This is kind of a weird combo of people. Like heroes and villains ... but the real question, who actually buys these?!
Ginnie Hart: The funny thing is, Emily, I used to buy these in my past life! HA! I probably would have bought the Obama one on the spot...if it weren't for the fact that I try not to accummulate things anymore. smile

I love hove the 'traditionalists' up the back smile and laugh in their timeless way ... they're the stayers smile
Ginnie Hart: That's exactly how I felt about this, Geoff!!! smile

"Judge me on the company I keep", says Barack surrounded by tyrants and pop singers. Hmmm!!

Good shot though Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Even Jesus was keen on walking amongst the so-called sinners, George! smile Thanks.

Mercury and Lennon are innocents! Good and funny shot
Ginnie Hart: Innocent to the very end. Thanks, Oscar.
Good shot and a good treatment of the photo. Like it!
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Wolfgang.

Ginnie Hart: Actually, in my past life, Rian, I collected nesting dolls. I would have bought Obama! smile
