Ladies and gentlemen: crocoduck.

In case you haven’t heard, one of Ray Comfort and Kirk Cameron’s lines of argumentation involves holding up a photoshopped monster (whose origin is very likely the Something Awful, Worth 1000, or Fark photoshop contests), and saying “evolution says this should exist as a transitional form, and it doesn’t, therefore God, QED.” They usually just …

Our child

Meet Ginger, our ten and a half year old Nova Scotia duck toller / border collie cross.

Gay Puerto Rican decapitated, burned…

… and the presiding investigator says “people who lead this type of lifestyle need to be aware that this will happen”. Wait, seriously? Being gay leads to mutilation?
