Check Out This Fucking Sleazeball

Our old friend high-school debate-team champeeeeeeeeen is not only acting like a ridiculous douchebag again, but he seems to have also lost his moral compass.

Thought For The Day

If you’re gonna be a narcissistic asshole, at least have the fucking decency to be a fun one.

Thought For The Day

The Democratic Party is that hapless skinny fucking dweeb on the beach getting sand kicked in his face on the inside back cover of the comic book by the smirking muscle-bound dumbfuck.

Militant Atheism

There is a striking paucity of corroborative evidence for the existence of leprechauns lolling in pots of gold at the ends of rainbows, but you never see eleventeen fuckjillion leprechaun enthusiasts banding together to kill, maim, oppress, and otherwise fuck with people who don’t give a flying fuck about leprechauns and just want to be …

Big Motherfucking Esoteric Cats

The notion that universities are not part of the “real world” is a mainstreamed right-wing anti-intellectual lie. Yeah, university faculty are elitist egg-heads living in a an ivory tower far removed from the “real world”, but corporate oligarchs with marble bathrooms in their offices flying around in private jets and telling the fucking United States …
