Flying Dildos

Chances are there’s a conservative politician under your bed or on your favorite news show screaming that sex, and the sex industry, are the cause of moral decay. Why? In April, reporters jumped all over GOP loser Ted Cruz’s vehemently anti-dildo and anti-masturbation track record from back when he was solicitor general in Texas. The … Continue reading

The B*tt Plug Stops Here

Media jump on the opportunity to report about politicians and their proclivity to invade our bedrooms and tell us that sex and the sex industry cause moral decay. So in April reporters jumped all over Ted Cruz’s vehemently anti-dildo and anti-masturbation track record from back when he was solicitor general in Texas. The reports positioned … Continue reading

What the Hell is Bible Math?

According to the National Center for Education Statistics, there are approximately 57 million American kids in elementary schools. Shooters have killed 0.00012% of them in the last three years.

The Illusion of Knowledge

“Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge: It is those who know little, and not those who know much, who so positively assert that this or that problem will never be solved by science.” ~Charles Darwin, born this day in 1809                 *** *** *** *** While … Continue reading

Pull Up A Chair, Kids

It seems we can’t get through a decade without at least once having former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg remind us that, as a billionaire, he’s as entitled as anyone to buy the presidency of the United States. And here he is again, declaring that he’s two thinks from declaring candidacy and riding to … Continue reading

Isolated, Starving and Losing Hope

The Iowa Caucus spectacle started with snarky humor and, by Monday night, will probably end in horror (if it hasn’t already).  And the whole thing could have been prevented. It started on a high comedy note. While the candidates were getting the lay of the cornfields, the UK Parliament was devoting three full hours to … Continue reading

Arizona Senator Finally Proves That Nobody Gives a Shit

One Answer, and All is Explained

      “The trouble ain’t that there is too many fools, but that the lightning ain’t distributed right.” ~Mark Twain Enjoy tonight’s GOP debate. We recommend a bowl of Jolly Time Blast-o-Butter Microwave Popcorn to go with it.

One Voice

This week in 1954, the U.S. Senate voted 67 to 22 in favor to “condemn” paranoid, communist-hunting Senator Joseph McCarthy for “conduct that tends to bring the Senate into dishonor and disrepute.” Because the resolution used the seemingly unenforceable term condemn rather than censure, McCarthy’s supporters on the Senate floor erupted into laughter. Within moments, … Continue reading

Bang Bang Update

Thanksgiving weekend seems like a weird time to bring up something morbid, but maybe there’s no better time of the year to memorialize all the Americans who can’t say thanks this year because of guns. Especially after today’s shootings in Colorado. Today’s shootings started at a Planned Parenthood center, and, even though there were armed … Continue reading

We’ve Replaced Your Wife With Folgers Crystals

“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” ~Albert Einstein Everything indicated that the American divorce rate would drop after the invention of Folgers Crystals. Research indicates, however, that in the early 1960s, when these commercials were introduced, divorce was at its lowest rate of the decade.  Over … Continue reading
