Holy Moly!

How did Will Ferrell come up with that one? Wait…THAT’S NOT WILL FERRELL!

A worrying transmission from Planet Yikes

April 30, 2010

I tweeted this last night and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it since. It’s not just the girl that I find extraordinary–she’s certainly a little bit more than your average, attention-seeking, teen fundie numpty– it’s the utterly unfazed University staff. What is going on in Texas that they are able to just shrug this kind of thing off? Are they so used to lunatics that they can just leave them writhing on the floor while they get on with their day?  Anywhere else in the world, it’d be “Holy shit! That girl just said a lot of crazy stuff and then had an orgasm and then fell over! Everything else we were going to do today is canceled! We need some time to absorb this utterly insane thing that is still happening behind us!”

Instead:  “Can someone call an ambulance? Great! Now let’s all do the next thing we were going to do! Music, please!”

This is like an intercepted transmission from an alien culture. What are they going to do next, exactly? Proceed to the birthing chamber to meld minds? It’s that what a ‘recessional’ means?



This Blood’s For You!

As Jesus’s General has it, “There’s nothing that says “Fourth of July” better than a bleeding Jesus and a reworked beer ad slogan.”


Hero of the day

May 26, 2009

If all copies and records of ‘Father Ted’ were somehow wiped, I would find it impossible to summon up the affection with which Arthur and I initially wrote the show. Somehow, these days, The Irish Catholic Church seems a lot less cuddly.


Crazy Christian movie trailers! Start your collection here!

April 3, 2009

1. You may need to keep reminding yourself, this isn’t the actual film. It’s a trailer for the film.

2. God’s voice is really more Santa-like, don’t you think?

3. As Videogum (who are keeping their eyes peeled for this sort of thing) have it: “”I love you. I LOVE you! I LOOVE YOUUU! Listen to my demo!”

4. Oh, just everything!


Don’t worry, Jewish people! He’s “reviewing the evidence”

February 12, 2009


Interview from Der Spiegel with Bishop Richard Williamson (pictured above), the creepy Holocaust denier supported by the Vatican. Via Cynical C, who also offer this nugget from Wikipedia.

“Williamson holds strong views regarding gender roles and dress. He opposes women attending college or university, the wearing of trousers or shorts by women, and has urged greater “manliness” in men. He is quoted as saying: “A woman can do a good imitation of handling ideas, but then she will not be thinking properly as a woman. Did this lawyeress check her hairdo before coming into court? If she did, she is a distracted lawyer. If she did not, she is one distorted woman”

Get that? She’s distorted.


Lunch bags in hell!

February 1, 2009

This guy posted about doing art lunchbags for his kids, which is very sweet and one of the great things about the internet–that every so often it brings to light the ingenuity and thoughtfulness of some people… things you’d otherwise never have heard about.

That said, I wouldn’t actually have posted a link to it had I not noticed this totally awsome thing. The ad that I had to click to get into the site accidentally looks like a Jack Chick cover and is therefore a little disturbing!

For those of you who haven’t had a jack Chick tract fall into your lap when you opened a comic, here’s a taste (warning! He’s insane!).

I nominate this as a possible meme! Innocent things as Jack Chick covers!
