Scrutinizing the Value of Charlie Butts

Thursday, April 30th, 2009

Dilbert (left) and Charlie Butts There is none. Next question! Actually, the above title came to me while reading his latest column at OneNeuronNow, “Scrutinizing the Value of Public Prayer”. Apparently Mr. Butts just sits as his desk waiting for press releases by fundie groups and then refashions them into “articles”. Pretty sweet gig. Most […]

Buddha Says…

These are the two funniest captions submitted so far. If you can think of something else, feel free to suggest it. The first was suggested by Brian. The second was suggested by OtherRob. Good job, guys!

John Hawkins Takes Conservative Douchebaggery to High Art

Tuesday, April 28th, 2009

Until now, I thought being a conservative douchebag didn’t require any real talent. It was just something that some people managed to do without thinking (since thinking, by definition, makes it impossible to be a conservative douchebag). I was wrong. I found an article by John Hawkins that is so brilliant in its douchebaggery that […]

We Demand Respect! (We Just Don’t Give It)

Sunday, April 26th, 2009

In that recent Carnival of the Godless article, I mentioned how some Christians were upset that another blogger called Kirk Cameron a loon. Somehow they think that their ideas, even the craziest, are somehow immune from criticism. They frequently throw around words like “respect”. Really? You guys want respect? Then why don’t you start giving […]

As you can see, Snogger wins the grand prize of no money and no prizes, but all of the fame that accompanies getting his caption selected by an obscure blog. Congratulations, Snogger!

Carnival of the Godless for Loons

Saturday, April 25th, 2009

The latest Carnival of the Godless came out last Monday, and you can find it over at Anonymously Blogging My Heart Out. One article I thought was amusing in its naivete comes from Paul Fidalgo and his blog DC Secularism Examiner. In his article “Nonbelievers and the etiquette of name-calling”, he reports that he took […]

One Third of Fundies Believe in Global Warming

Thursday, April 23rd, 2009

That number is way higher than I expected. Isn’t it sad that when only one third of fundies believe in something consistent with the vast majority of the data that I consider that to be progress? They’ve trained me to have very low expectations of them. This particular statistic comes to us from one of […]

LOL Sonny and Cher

Tuesday, April 21st, 2009

I found this old ad with Sonny and Cher pushing Bibles. I decided we need to make them say something, so I added the word balloons. If anybody is game, help me fill those in. I did come up with something myself, but I’m not convinced it’s funny enough. Whatever we come up with should […]
