Only in Mainz, Germany…

Good morning, Netizens…

In our picture of the day, we have the so-called “Schwellkoepp” (swollen heads), the traditional carnival figures of Mainz, take part in a parade on Tuesday in Mainz, southwestern Germany. Carnival revellers in the German capital and mainly the Rhine region celebrated the launch of the carnival season at 11 minutes past 11 o’clock. (November 11, 2008) Getty Images

Actually, when I looked more-closely at this trio of unusual figures, I briefly thought I might have recognized one of the faces, which worried me a bit. Given that my present mother-in-law is a saintly, gentle old woman who has a heart that knows no boundaries when it comes to human dignity and decency, I cannot disparage her by comparing her to the female figurine.

However, I would swear the female figure in this picture closely resembles certain brittle female politicians I have encountered recently.

See anyone you recognize in the above picture? Inquiring minds want to know.
