What to Get That Hard-To-Buy-For Friend, or, Making Sure Your Sins DON’T Find You Out

by Clay Staggs

I tagged this under the Humor category, on the assumption that this must be a hoax, because it’s just too good to be true. If, by some chance, though, this is legit, I want to know where to invest:

Smart Hipsters…without God

by Tim Lien

Hilarious clip from Portlandia (IFC). (1min,53sec)

If the smugness of the hipster is what they have read (and what others havenâ??t), then maybe Reformed types just addâ?¦God. Ouch. This parody hits a little too close.

Measuring Your Drink’s Manliness

by Clay Staggs

The site askmen.com has developed a handy graph to help you understand your drink of choice’s manliness (or lack thereof). The vertical axis measures the “hair-on-your-chest” factor, while the horizontal axis show the level of sophistication. Here goes:

New Study Reveals Most Children Unrepentant Sociopaths

by Clay Staggs

From the Onion, no less.

Imagine that: teaching depravity through satire!

Best line:

We’ve tried behavior modification therapies, but children actually learn from our techniques and become even more adept at manipulating others while concealing their shameless misanthropy,” Singh said. “Sadly, experience has taught us there is little hope …

As I was preparing some deviled eggs, I noticed this prominent peace symbol on one of the eggs I was shelling. Most significantly, I was making these eggs for our CHURCH picnic!!!!!!!!! I think it must be a sign!

A Good Loser

by Tim Lien

Seth McBee (of Contend Earnestly fame) approached me with this unholy proposition. Lose the March Madness bracket, I would pose with a sign stating “Credos are More Reformed than I am.”

(Definition: “Credos” are those new-babes in Christ who still disobey the God-given command to apply the sign of the …

All I Need Is A Miracle

by Tim Lien

Post-Christmas-Partum had me in quite a funk. I needed something. Something to bring me out of my tinsel-laced stupor. I needed a miracle. Toast425-1.jpg Toast425-2.jpg Toast425-3.jpg Toast425-4.jpg

I was hoping for a biblical character, but all I got was a Madeline impersonator from Peabody, North Dakota. Maybe next year…or tomorrow morning at breakfast.

A Crack in the Dam

by Clay Staggs

One of the things that’s struck me about this election cycle has been the way no one will make jokes about Obama. This morning, that’s changed. Not anyone here though, where political correctness reigns supreme. Gerard Baker of the Times (UK) strikes first. The whole piece is here …

My Vote for President

by Jimmy Hopper

I guess I can quit worrying about who to vote for for president. Chuck Norris called the house today and said to vote for Mike Huckabee and now I’m too afraid to consider anyone else.

Just Say No

by Clay Staggs

Before getting started, let me just say that I am not making this up.

Colorado is actually considering making the song “Rocky Mountain High” its official state song.

As if that weren’t bad enough, State Sen Bob Hagedorn insists in the New York Times that the song has nothing …

Just for a Lark

by Tim Lien

Although not for the literal or the super-sensitive. LarkNews has a great monthly “newsletter” that exposes the terrible aspects of American Evangelical Christianity. I guess that’s why I love satire so much— in being so close to reality, the ludicrous and ridiculous come into stark relief. I have heard …
