We put up our 1,000th post a week ago. We’re now looking through everything we’ve posted, and are putting up “best of” lists in our most popular categories.

This is the fifth of our first-1,000 “best of” lists. We’ve already posted the Science Fiction, MusicInterviews, and Addictions lists, and will shortly be putting up other “best ofs” in several other categories, including Anarchism, Atheism, Economics, Politics, Religion, Science, and Skepticism.

Humor is by far our most heavily populated category, with 365 posts over the last three years. We found it difficult to pick the funniest ones, but we consider these relative few among the best.

televangelist

TELEVANGELIST, n. Ideally suited to his profession, the televangelist makes a career of denouncing greed, gluttony, dishonesty, drunkenness, drug abuse, prostitution, adultery, fornication, and homosexuality — and thus speaks from a wealth of personal experience.
