Friday Cephalopod: Cuteness!

The gang at Skepticon are running a poll to design the World’s Most Innocuous Atheist Billboard, and they’ve settled on the message — “Baby Animals Are Cute” — and they’ve got some choices for you to pick from. I thought I’d help and offer my own suggestion:

See? Far superior to the kittens and puppies they suggest, and it’s much more in the spirit of atheism.

DO NOT ARGUE WITH ME. Or Baby Octopus will devour you.

    Just like the anti-gay haters who give away their secret yearnings by their constant focus on the details of male-male shenanigans, so P-zed’s regular dissing of kitties in favor of cephalopods is clearly a smoke screen to conceal a deep love for the furry critters.

    Thus, by the application of elementary psychological principles and a little logic, we arrive at the truth: the Meyers household – and we’re not talking about P-zed’s daughter here – must have at least one much-loved cat.

    Bashing cats I understand, but don’t you dare insult the Hallowed Canis Lupus Familiaris, the sacred proof of Intelligent Design (well, at least the proof of deliberate breeding, but close enough), The Godly embodiement of all that is Cute and Good and Slobbering, or else… OR ELSE…

    You’ll get THIS on your front porch, delivered with seasonings and a recipe for microwave re-heating: you’ve been warned.

    I don’t know about cute, but it does look suspiciously like a flying spaghetti monster. I’m afraid I’m going to have to call Maury.

    Yeah? Says who? You can’t make me not argue with you. I’ll argue with you if I want to and you can’t stop me. So there. Nyaaah! :-þ

    It would certainly be more difficult for a Crazy Republican to scribble the word “LIBERAL” on a dead octopus.

    Good Minnesotans ,flee and fetch your torches and pitchforks :

    That bloody fiend Myers has either been devouring fetal Republicans again, or is about to serve the last Mammoth embryo in the south 48 as a canape.
