WTF Wednesday

Witch burnings, lost nukes, and animal sacrifice? Can we please rejoin the twenty-first century, already in progress? How the hell can you a) operate a jumbo jet and b) think that the best way to fix it just might be snuffing a couple of goats on the tarmac? Remind me not to fly Nepal Air.

In other news, lead is still poisonous; religion still can't wrap its head around the idea that gay people are actually people; stealing money from the working class is still bad for the economy; drugs, alcohol, and rock stars is still a bad mix; and Austrians are apparently still a pack of Nazis. Who in their right mind would let one of those assholes run their government?

Oh, and Crocs? You know they're still evil.

Has everybody lost their collective minds? Get your shit together, people!

As long as Keith Richards is alive, rock 'n rollers will never change their ways. Neither will Nazis, but for completely unrelated reasons.

What does that say that the most reliable and unbiased source of US news is the Beeb?

That's what you get, baby, for reading the news from sources outside the US of A. You need to let the American media lull you back into a nice, relaxed state of submission.

I'm not actually sure that Keith Richards is still alive. I think they're doing a Weekend at Bernie's thing here...

Part of it is that they have the luxury of distance. They don't have a dog in the race. The much, much bigger part is that I hate CNN, so I don't usually look there.

What was it Aldous Huxley said? "The warm, the richly coloured, the infinitely friendly world of soma-news. How kind, how good-looking, how delightfully amusing every story was!" ...or something like that.

maybe we could combine some of these headlines and sacrifice a few gay-hating religious folks by strapping them to a nuke?

Oh, and I LIKE crocs!! They're the most comfy damned shoes I've ever had.

Hey, excellent point and it certainly explains why Chicken Little...er, I mean, the Dobbster, is saying that the sky is falling every other minute.

Come on now, don't you know witches are for burnin' and animals are for sacrificin'? Who raised you?
