That's not a swarm of locusts. It's just a very dirty n dusty slide.
I could / should clean it, and restore the slide to pristine condition .... but ... just imagine how hideously tedious that slide would be than.
Bonus 1 - Peter Bradshaw reviews Bicentennial Man
Bonus 2 - Review and Pics - Teenage Fanclub at Rock City (28-Nov-2016)

Typical. Bl**dy Typical.
I know that I have a bucket-load of Thanksgiving Day meal slides, but...can I find them?
Can I heck!
So, here's a wife basting a gammon with brandy. Possibly as an alternative to the TGDay Turkey.

On finding this slide, I immediately started wondering about the context.
Sixties, obviously. A formal cemetery, and scaffolding for TV cameras?
Alas, with some research, this isn't anything to do with the assassination of JFK (53 years ago today).
No, it's the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia, United States of America.
Bonus - Come on, Fair Exchange !

Well, I think I know the basics of what's being illustrated, but lets see what Google Images reverse search reckons the image is.
Bonus - America, split into two. Trumpland and Clintonland.

Perhaps they were at Teenage Fanclub's gig last night at Sheffield Leadmill.
Excellent night - marred (for me) by an idiotic portion of the audience who spent the whole night travelling back and forth between the two bars. I reckon the same cockwomble in a U2 t-shirt squeezed past me seven times. FFS.
Actually, these two chaps are probably in 1950's America, judging by the fashions, and the phalanx of demobbed Liberty Ships in the background.

Donald J Trump vs Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Oh good grief.
I wanted a vaguely appropriate slide for the day, but due to the lack of information of 99% of slides, I couldn't find anything quickly. So, here's a poor quality slide from 1952, which, at least, has a wall poster of the President Of The United States. At the time, Harry S Truman was the Dude.
Bonus - Vaguely appropriate :

Sixty years ago.... hmmm.
I wonder whether today's selfies, belfies and food pics will be collected and viewed by strangers in sixty years.
Still. Devil's Lake. There's gotta be a story behind that name. Devils Lake was so named because it is situated in a deep chasm with no visible inlet or outlet.
Bonus - The Ghastlytrump Tinies
