The Production Code

Tuesday, November 28th, 2006

An off-hand crack I made in my last post reminded me of one of my favorite lines from a Warner Brothers cartoon. The cartoon is A Tale of Two Kitties. It marks the first appearance of Tweety. In the cartoon, two cats — who look suspiciously like Abbott and Costello — are trying to capture [...]

Not the Turkey I Expected to Talk About Today

Thursday, November 23rd, 2006

Happy Thanksgiving. If you were expecting an article about poultry, you’ll be disappointed to learn that the fundies are definitely giving us the bird, but not the one you wanted. Cabbie X brought to my attention a news article about creationism in Turkey. The article is worth examining, because of the warnings it provides freedom-loving [...]

An Evolutionary Tail

Monday, November 20th, 2006

I was doing a little research on fetal development. By research, I don’t mean in a lab. If I don’t clarify that, the fundies will read that first sentence and think I’m some sort of monster. Me, in my lab, researching fetal development. What I mean is that I was reading stuff online about fetal [...]

Gay Penguins: Back for Sloppy Seconds

Wednesday, November 15th, 2006

I managed to find a place on the web that still has the Daily Show Gay Penguins segment. If you haven’t seen it yet, or want to watch it again, swim over to this page. I’m not going to embed it in my page, because I don’t want to steal their bandwidth. If you have [...]

It’s Just Too Easy

Sunday, November 5th, 2006

It’s like shooting in a barrel. If I commented on every fundie misstep, I’d never get any sleep. I’ve left a few of the more famous scandals alone, because they’ve been so obvious that I doubt I could add anything funny. Just recently, we had the Mark Foley scandal. There are all sorts of questions [...]

Greetings from a Crappy Blog

Friday, November 3rd, 2006

By now, you have probably heard that YouTube was forced to remove all content from Comedy Central, as well as just about everything else. The only stuff left is about two million videos of skateboarders falling off of railings. I do believe in copyright and intellectual property, but I believe in liberal fair use laws. [...]
