John Oliver explains that we don’t need to pander to corporate greed


And he uses the Ark Park as one of his examples of a futile economic policy!

    Unfortunately the video’s only available for US viewers. Which is odd, since all the other John Oliver vids on his channel work fine outside the US. For anyone who can’t watch it, Hemant at Friendly Atheist posted a transcript of the Ark bit.

    Now I wanna see Ken Ham’s reaction to his Big Gay Ark being called a “floating fuck zoo” on cable TV.

    You can easily get around the geo-ip blocking by watching it via TOR or a VPN with a US exit node.

    Once again, to any who cannot watch this video in their country:

    1) Open video in new tab or window
    2) In the video URL, where it reads ‘youtube.com’, replace ‘tube’ with ‘pak’
    3) Enjoy video

    This video is not available.
    My rough guess is that about 1 in 20 of the newer videos are not available. I have not noticed any consistant pattern except the date.

    John Oliver is absolutely wrong.

    The animals were not brought on Noah’s Ark to fuck on the boat — indeed, commentary specifically states that the animals did not copulate on the Ark. So the Ark was not a fuck boat.

    Of course, the animals were indeed supposed to get busy once they got off the boat, on Ararat. So you could say they were on a (chaste) cruise to Fuck Mountain.

    But what about mayflies and such? Were their lifecycles longer back then, or were they perhaps given special permission to fuck on the boat?

    @consciousness razor:
    I put on my creationist hat, and got back:
    No, see, it was the fly baramin that went on the Ark; they didn’t devolve to have such short lives until after they got off the ark.

    Sorted!

    And I’m sure all the fictional animals on the aforementioned fictional boat riding high on that fictional flood abided just as strictly to that tenant as Xian teenagers do to their injunction against sex pre-wedlock (with their fictional chastity), meaning of course that anal sex doesn’t count and despite that you still get a whole lot of ‘miraculous’ pregnancies and hush-hush abortions…

    It was excellent segment. I only hope the shit-covered zebra isn’t the only point people remember as funny as it was.
