Badtux the Snarky Penguin

In a time of chimpanzees, I was a penguin.

Religious fundamentalists are motivated by the sneaking suspicion that someone, somewhere, is having fun -- and that this must be stopped.

The Corndog Cometh

Somehow, from some other blog, I managed to open the NRO page in a new window. I was not finished reading the other blog, so clicked the other blog's window to bring it back on top and kept reading. When finished, I closed that window... and wondered, "Why am I looking at the National Review Online's page?" After spending several minutes scanning several of the articles looking for the one that the blog I came from must have linked to, I realized: "Hold it, this isn't the National Review Online, this is a PARODY of the National Review Online!"

I guess that just goes to show that parodying the National Review Online is a redundant task. I mean, how could you tell the difference between the parody and the real thing, anyhow?

Scott McClellan is close to self parody these days.

Parody died for me when I saw The Onion's headline for Shrub's first inaguration: "Our national nightmare of peace & prosperity is over". It went on to report about Shrub's defecit spending, & perpetual warfare. I had chills reading it. Normally The Onion is funny satire. Two years later, the headline was a blurb on page A17 in any newspaper.

"Keep fighting for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don't forget to have fun doin' it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce." -- Molly Ivins, 1944-2007 "The penalty good men pay for indifference to public affairs is to be ruled by evil men."
