General Batshit, Butt Pirates, ‘WTF’ Moments, and the Batshit of the Week Award
Proof that our military is more and more off-the-rails, a group of Army chaplains has decided the best way to reach our young soldiers with the message of God’s Throne is to do so in the ‘throne room’ – or, if you prefer – the latrine. No shit. You can’t even take a dump in the Army any more without having the Bible shoved up your arse.
People are Nasty, and Sh*t
BART, the venerated and sometimes-maligned transportation system of San Francisco, was the recent subject of an independent study by San Francisco State’s biology lab – where they found that those plush fabric seats on BART’s new trains now contain more than polyester and blue dye after a bit o’ use – it turns out that many of BART’s riders have questionable hygiene.
Michele Bachmann not only doesn’t know anything about government – she doesn’t know anything about American history, either.
Brannon Howse, a little-known Fundie whackjob who used to support Glenn Beck (a better-known Fundie whackjob) has now come out and called Beck a ‘New-Age Antichrist’. My favorite whackjob-website, World
Net Daily, has the whole story (it’s not going to matter who wins the argument – but it’ll be fun in its own way to watch.) Nut
Tennessee state senator Mae Beavers (no; I didn’t make that up) recently introduced a bill which would make it mandatory to submit a long-form birth-certificate to file as a presidential candidate in Tennessee. When asked if she knew what a long-form birth-cert actually was, she had an interesting reply….
Here’s a guy from Minnesota who believes that satellite-launched laser-beams can cure disease. Really. I didn’t make it up….
This gal flew all the way across the country - to take ‘revenge’ on her husband. Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, some rabbis have a clever, peaceful and non-violent (if not too-well-thought-out) means of eliminating homosexuality….
This guy wins a prize from Guinness for the inventive use of his - well - uh - 'nether regions'….
Batshit of the Week Award
And, finally – my Batshit of the Week award goes to the 91 year old Congressman from New Hampshire, the Right Honorable Marty Harty (no; I didn’t make that one up, either) – who said that we need to send all of our ‘defective people’ to Siberia (yes; he said that. Really).
But hey – anyone who lived first-person through WWII and who still channels Adolf Hitler for commentary in Congress deserves an award – even if it is just my Batshit of the Week….
Until later; folks….
