where nothing is real, and nothing else is sacred.

See? There is no God.

(Jim Young/Reuters) There’s your proof right there: After calling Alberto Gonzales “honorable” and several other complementary words that described a man of good character, King George the Worst was not struck down by lightning, the earth did not rend itself in twain and swallow the lying bastard whole, nor did the Universe implode with a tiny whimper. Or, okay…if there is a God, He has long since given up being concerned about what Georgie-boy has to say. And if that’s the case, what good, exactly, is your God?

One State Under Gawd

One State Under Gawd “Honor the Texas flag; I pledge allegiance to thee, Texas, one state under God, one and indivisible.”

first off, when the hell did that crap start? i don’t remember that from school. boy, i’m sure the day that was originally passed into law was a Big Event.

but seriously, ya’ll’re kidding, right?

ya’ll actually voted for adding “one state under God” to this? i mean, ya’ll do realize ya’ll’re also “one state under the atmosphere”, “one state surrounded by other states except for parts of the southern border”, and “one state apparently driven while under the influence”, right?

this was absolutely, fundamentally, completely and totally freakin’ necessary to your legislature’s continued existence in the Great Texas Republic?

more so than, say, voting on memorializing all the lost jellyfish to shipping traffic in Corpus Christi Bay? or commemorating cicadas lost to drive-by smashings by people with Oklahoma license plates? or incarcerating wild animals who pee on bluebonnets?

Speed Muslims…

(AFP/Shah Marai) “…on the fast track to 70 virgins.”

Okay, look. Here’s the deal: I find a photo I think may be amusing, and I write a little something that may or may not also be amusing, then I post it. No, I do not believe that all Muslims are out to get us. I just liked the photograph, I haven’t done a religious post in a long time, and, well, I’m pretty much an equal-opportunity asshole. Carry on!
