Cacciatore! Belladonna!

I'm not too proud to admit that when I think of the eponym for today's celebration, this is pretty much what comes to mind.  As a child, my disappointment that in reality Isabella of Castile wasn't all that much of a Mae West impersonator was almost offset by the slightly later realization that she really was Henry VIII's mother-in-law.  Well, his first mother-in-law, at least.

In any case, a happy Columbus Day to any Gentle Readers who go in for that sort of thing.  Any excuse for a Looney Tune, don't you think?

    I credit Looney Tunes for many aspects of my personality and sense of humor. Thank you, Warner Bros.
