Phew, you learn something here. To blacken one's face as to hide a so-called deficiency of the body: how racial and discriminatory can you get?

At a young age, she began singing at her parents' restaurant for tips.[7] Between taking orders and serving customers, Sophie "would stand up in the narrow space by the door and sing with all the drama I could put into it. At the end of the last chorus, between me and the onions there wasn't a dry eye in the place."

Hahahahahahaha! "(...) between me and the onions there wasn't a dry eye in the place."

Hahahahahahaha!

Disc dog, or Frisbee dog, is a sport that showcases speedy, high-flying dogs catching discs thrown by their human teammates. It got its start in the early 1970s, but its popularity was boosted in 1974, when 19-year-old college student Alex Stein ran onto the field during a nationally broadcast baseball game and began throwing discs to his dog, Ashley Whippet.


The nerve!

The term Democracy denotes freedoms for its peoples , but each
country has its own parameters and definitions that are associated
with democracy while still having expressions from past governing
preferences.


Hurray! Hurray!!

She must have been popular in her time and even decades later. I have known someone who had her portrait on the night table. This intrigued me, since the photo was already from another era.
