We have enough Muhammad Cartoons. Why not some burqa cartoons?


We have seen a lot of Muhammad cartoons. But I think burqa cartoons are funnier. “I’m quite pleased with your new appearance. Now you are finally behaving like a proper woman!” Pardon the delay, I didn’t know what to wear.

Obama should end National Day of Prayer. God & government are a dangerous mix.

No prayer

”You know who I pray to? Joe Pesci. Two reasons; first of all, I think he’s a good actor. Ok. To me, that counts. Second; he looks like a guy who can get things done. Joe Pesci doesn’t fuck around. In fact, Joe Pesci came through on a couple of things that god was having …
