All that’s missing is a bio of the Easter Bunny.

(Many thanks to Pamela Sutter, author of May the Farce be with You: A lighthearted Look at why God does not Exist, for taking and sending this photo.)


The obvious answer is “for good reason.” They have a well deserved reputation as holier-than-thou, uptight pricks more interested in patting themselves on the back (their chiropractic bills must be astronomical) and asserting their moral superiority than in making the world a better place for people or animals. They’ve managed to make a healthy, ecologically sound diet less popular than oral herpes. As the old joke goes, “Don’t worry about whether any of your dinner guests are vegans — they’ll let you know.”

The latest example of vegan scumbaggery comes courtesy of vegan talibaner Phillip Williams who sued Burger King for cooking his Impossible Burger (a veggie burger that tastes exactly like meat) on a grill on which — the horror! the horror! — they also cook meat.

Let’s think about this douchebag move for a moment. It’s more than obvious that for Williams, it’s all about him. Burger King isn’t going to the massive expense of installing separate grills for meat burgers and veggie burgers (for the morally pure). Williams’ lawsuit probably won’t go anywhere, but at best it’ll be a waste of time and money for all involved, and if, god forbid, he wins, it’ll result in more meat consumption and more slaughtered animals, as Burger King would drop the Impossible Burger in a heartbeat rather than go to the massive expense of duplicating the number of grills at their outlets to accommodate vegan puritans. Hence, more meat consumption, more slaughtered animals, more environmental degradation.

Not that that seems to matter to Williams. After all, it’s all about him.

What an asshole.

Here’s one from Seattle Propane’s always amusing Wallingford Sign site.

(This joke works only if you know some Spanish: “soy” means “I am.”)


We hit 100,000 views last week, and we’re using that as an excuse to list the best posts we’ve published, divided by category. Part 1 covered Addictions, Anarchism, Atheism, Baseball, and Capitalism; Part 2 covered Civil Liberties, Economics, Gardening, Interviews, and Journalism; and Part 3 covered jokes. Since there are well over 500 posts in the Humor category (out of 1,500 total), we’ll be doing at least one or two more best-of Humor lists. Here are the best 70 or so posts mocking religion:

Religious Humor/Mockery


We hit 100,000 views last week, and to celebrate (if that’s the right word) we’re listing the best posts we’ve published, divided by category. Part 1 covered Addictions, Anarchism, Atheism, Baseball, and Capitalism; Part 2 covered Civil Liberties, Economics, Gardening, Interviews, and Journalism; and Part 3, below, covers jokes. Since there are over 500 posts in the Humor category (out of 1,500 total), we’ll be doing at least two more posts on humor in this series, including more jokes.

Humor (Jokes)


The Australian Broadcasting Corporation has a report that shows yet again that some people will buy anything. The ABC reports that the College of Universal Medicine (COUM) was forced by an Australian court, which termed the group an “exploitative cult,” to return $600,000 to donors.

The ABC notes: “The COUM promotes the teachings of Universal Medicine’s (UM) multi-millionaire founder Serge Benhayon — a former bankrupt tennis coach who claims to be Leonardo Da Vinci reincarnated.”

With qualifications like that, how could anyone not donate?

This all brings to mind a remark Fred Woodworth made ages ago about religious believers (slightly paraphrased here): “If someone founded a religion that required believers to crawl across broken glass on their stomachs with their flies open, and consume dog shit as sacrament, people would rush to join up.”


It’s been a while since we’ve posted one of these, so this’ll be a bit longer than usual. Given these dark times and the need for comic relief, we’re mostly featuring Funny Internet Crap this time around. We’ve found some choice items so, as always, hang onto your hats and enjoy.

  • Deadstate is always good for a few laughs amidst the political and religious horrors it tends to cover. Our current favorite story is “University psychiatrist: Saying Trump is mentally ill is a ‘terrible insult to the mentally ill.'”
  • Rudy Rucker’s Juicy Ghost is a  “a political sci-fi story,” that the standard sci-fi magazines thought was too hot to handle. (Rucker is a very well established sci-fi author — normally the mags would gobble up any short story he submitted.) So, because none of the magazines would publish it, Rucker put it up in its entirety on his own blog. It’s short, but highly enjoyable.
  • Everyone loves a good prank, and for some fun examples see this story about Jeff Wysaski’s “obvious plants.” They good, but not as good as the following fake poster plastered all over Santa Cruz a couple of years ago:

  • And everyone loves to indulge in schadenfreude (feeling joy at another’s misfortune). And it’d be hard to top the amount of pure joy one feels when viewing this video taken inside a restaurant in China by a live-streamer who filmed herself trying to eat a live octopus. By far the best thing about this is that she did everything from planning this animal-abuse atrocity to attempting to execute it herself. Bon appetit!
  • Speaking of animals and sheer nuttiness all wrapped up in a conspiracy theory, check out this story about the Birds Aren’t Real campaign. (Yes, birds have all been replaced by surveillance drones.)
  • If you think most modern pop music utterly sucks, you’re right. For an entertaining exposition on just how and why so much of it does, check out Axis of Awesome’s “How to Write a Love Song.”
  • And what better to finish with than what might be the funniest short video ever posted on Youtube dealing with fishing, rednecks, and beer. You’ve gotta love this guy.

And as we’ve said before . . . Th . . . Th . . . Th . . . Th . . . Th . . . Th . . . Th . . . That’s all folks!
