    What will we do for the next three weeks?

    Compare and contrast.

    Louisiana Republican Sen. David Vitter (whose job it is to enact legislation): "I have a fundamental problem with any 1,000-page bills."

    The Daily Show's Jon Stewart (whose job it is to make us laugh): "I've read the bill."

    Inbreeding is Good?

    I was always under the impression that inbreeding was a bad idea. Not only is it creepy, but a diverse gene pool is desirable – at least that’s what I thought.  Until I read about the Italian town of Stoccareddo.  Just as a narrowed gene pool can increase the probability of a bad trait becoming overly prevalent, it can also do so for a good trait.

    Said Cantor, “The President gets to hand out the Presidential Medal of Freedom to whoever he wants. Just this week, President Obama handed out the medal to two dead guys. Our award will have much stricter eligibility requirements.”

    Inaugural award nominees include:

    The Ad Council Commercials: Stupid or Super-Stupid? You Decide

    Oh, how I disdain the Ad Council and their stupid commercials. Just look at these. Few things boils my blood more than seeing our government piss away our tax dollars. Our hard earned capital is routinely spent on frivolous endeavors that benefit few while burdening the majority. While I think government spending in certain areas is absolutely necessary, spending money on stupid stuff is deplorable. An awesome example of horrible government spending is the Ad Council. While the organization itself is not a governmental agency, it accepts millions of dollars in public funds.

    News From the Future: NASA Reenacts Historic Moon Landing

    July 20, 2029

    To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the first moon landing, NASA staged a high-tech reenactment of the event in Nevada National Landfill Park. The landing was delayed by several hours due to cloudy weather and space junk that disrupted satellite transmission of President George Prescott Bush's remote broadcast from Washington D.C. Officials finally commenced the mission without the President's address after impatient visitors began shouting and throwing landfill refuse, including vintage Pepsi bottles, plastic shopping bags, and other historic artifacts.

    The Heretic's Bible - Genesis 17: Abram trims his plow

    When Abram turned 99, God came to him and said, “'I am God Almighty. Walk before Me and be perfect.”

    Commentary: Yessir, God definitely had a man-crush on Abram.

    Abram complied by falling flat on his face. Then God promised several more times to give Abram many, many offspring until Abram was about ready to tell God to shut up about the offspring already.

    But then God demanded a price for his largess: circumcision.

    Commentary: A kinky man-crush.

    Top 5 and Bottom 5 Animal Hybrids (with pics)

    One of my favorite movies from the 90’s is The Island of Dr. Moreau. A disturbing tale of a mad scientist splicing genes of animals and humans to make ungodly hybrids that eventually run amok on the island. I liked the movie so much that I even tried to read the book, but there were no pictures so I quickly lost interest.

    North Korean Threat Generator ™

    BREAKING: Having issued a number of bellicose threats in recent weeks, the government of North Korea has run dangerously low on epithets and histrionic adjectives. Though North Korea is the world's leading producer of hyperbole, the prolific output of the government controlled Central News Agency has outstripped their supply. Analysts fear that without wrathful verbiage, North Korea will resort to military force and patriotic parades.
