Deanna saw this on the Web and brought it to my attention. Never heard of them. They are NOT, I repeat NOT, the circus act that performed at the “America’s Got Talent” (AGT) semi-finals 1-hour ‘results’ show, on Wednesday, September 12, 2018. That was ‘A Magical Circus Christmas’. They seem MUCH BETTER — but they are not coming to New Hampshire. These folks are.
As you can clearly see from my comment I immediately knew that this was an April Fool’s joke. But, it was clever and cute and I used to LOVE Toblerone. I used to bring bars over from Europe to the U.S. in the 1980s and hooked a legion of folks hooked on it. That was way before it became readily available here.
Well, this picture had me intrigued enough that I did some Googling. It was well known. It did NOT start off as a Toblerone train. Instead it was just a triangular train — the premise being that such trains would fit better inside tunnels. Somebody took the triangular train and made it into the Toblerone train and STUCK a comic driver in the cab JUST IN CASE we did not spot that it was a joke.
So, here is the original triangular train you can see the white house, with red roof, behind the train and realize that this is it. Note that the wheels got slanted!
And that was Photoshopped from this.
Again check the background and you can see the commonality.

When we started homeschooling Teischan in April 2018 I got her a refurbished Lenovo W510 PC running Windows 10. We got her set up with her own account and all seemed OK at first. Then she kept on telling me that Microsoft wanted a parent to verify her age. But, she had found a way to get around that by repeatedly restarting the PC till the message went away. It wasn’t every day, but it was quite often.
Well, it happened again this morning. Except this time she was having trouble getting past the message. So, I told her that I will login and do the needful. Little did I realize that it was the most obnoxious, vile, HATEFUL & degrading process I have ever endured. Microsoft acts like the bloody Gestapo! I really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really HATE BLOODY Microsoft. The most horrible, dreadful company in the whole World.
I knew I would have to sign in. So, I had to first find my password.
It says it wants to charge $0.50 to a CREDIT CARD and that it would RETAIN the credit card information. Jesus wept.
I thought it was a scam. Had to Google it. Called wife and told her to check too just to make sure that I wasn’t delusional. Nope, not delusional. Just bloody Microsoft.
So, I grudgingly and with great trepidation give it a credit card number.
No, it still isn’t satisfied. Now it wants to do a txt/call verification with a CODE.
And in case you are thinking …. this applies to accounts where YOU make the mistake of saying that the owner is less than 13. Do NOT do that. Always put in a birthday that makes the user more than 35 — just to be on the SAFE SIDE.
