One crank dies, another rises to take his place

The regulars here may recall John A. Davison, who died in 2012. He was notoriously persistent and repetitive, and rather clueless: he was the guy who started a blog with one article, never wrote another one, and just made new comments. He later announced that it was full, and so…he started a brand new blog, …

Oh. Hey. One of the digits in the year changed last night.

Wasn’t it exciting? Not as exciting as that year when all four digits changed at once. I think we should change the system and base the calendar on an arbitrary event that occurred 999,999,999 years ago so that we can all explode in paroxyms of joy next January. And once precedent has been set, we …

Of course, if I were a member of the looter class…


…then I could afford this lovely $18,000 chandelier. Also, the house with the high-ceilinged dining room that it would fit in. And the mortgage payments that would go with it. All for a pretty luxury that lights the room less well than the mundane light fixture in our ceiling right now.

I picked the wrong moment in history to become a vegetarian


Because here and now, in this shining moment of time, the Chthucken has been invented. I could weep. Just a few years ago, I could have had the glory of bringing this out to serve the family on Christmas day.

North Koreans really know how to denounce a guy

News from North Korea: Traitor Jang Song Thaek Executed. Read the whole thing — it’s a classic example of long-winded Communist pomposity, which ends, sadly, with the announcement of the immediate execution of the corrupt fellow who clapped half-heartedly at a conference. Jang committed such an unpardonable thrice-cursed treason as overtly and covertly standing in …

Dear Atheist Santa…

I happened to note on Twitter that I was working on the Santa look — aging, bearded, graying, and, errrm, the cherubic-cheeked face. There’s the minor problem of the godless outlook, but then the idea came up…what about an atheist Santa? What would you ask him to get you for Christmas? What criteria would he …

Santa is a white man, just like Jesus

Man, they must select Fox News commentators for racism as well as stupidity. Here’s a video of Megyn Kelly indignantly arguing on an important issue: Santa Claus must be white. She’s offended that someone suggested that we could have a black Santa Claus. Santa just is white. But this person is maybe just arguing that …
