I feel so dirty now

Kent Hovind is counting the days now, and unfortunately he has followers who are going to afflict us with badly made videos.

The humanists of Uganda are in desperate need of your help!

The organization has been gutted by a robbery. “We woke up today to the sad news that our offices had been broken into and lots of property and cash taken. The first people to reach the office found [the building security guard] unconscious lying at the upper/ behind part of the building. Our offices were …

Todd Akin is sorry that he was sorry

Please, Republicans, welcome this man back into the fold, and make him a mouthpiece for the party. We are happy to see you drive women out of your camp.

I get email

Sometimes it is even informative. I was sent a data dump on official Catholic doctrine regarding sexual relations — it is rather revealing.

Now you won’t have to go see the next Star Wars movie

All the good stuff is right here in this clip. The release version will just have added wooden dialog, hackneyed characters, and some cheesy plot you won’t care about. Oh, and since it’s J.J.
