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.

Whither the "War on Terror"?

Okay, so you already know that the Global War on Terror is over. And the terror won, of course. The Orwell Administration couldn't function without terror, after all.

So now they've re-named it to the Global Struggle Against Violent Extremism. But sooner or later, someone is going to notice that "violent extremism" is an accurate description of Mad King George's regime (I mean, Mad King George has "only" killed some 100,000 or so innocent Afghan and Iraqi civilians with his violent extremism).

It is clear that we need a better term, one that is accurate without being embarrasingly so. So this penguin, fortified with mind-boggling quantities of herring and alcohol, has endeavored to produce one, and come up with:

Global Fight Against Those Sitting on our Oil (G-FATSO).

This acronym pithily sums up a) the girth of the average American, and b) The ultimate motivation for this global "struggle".

Gotta go now, that herring is threatening to come up the wrong way...

It's a struggle when you can't get your pants on because of weight gain.

"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."
