In the same spirit as OBJECTIVE: Ministries, I give you Telco Powered™ Products. New Patented Technology allows you to use Power from the Phone Company to operate everyday items that you have to use -even if the power is out. The product line is truly amazing. I’m torn: should I order the Telco Powered™ Fan…

I have a hodge-podge of old National Lampoons stored away in the basement. Periodically, I scan a few selected items (articles by P.J. O’Rourke and Chris Miller, various cartoons) for digital posterity. All are highly irreverent and culturally insensitive, and yes, I hoot raucously at them. Among my favorite bits of the NatLampPoo are Son-o-God…

LOLTHEORISTS

I didn’t shuffle through the digital shoe box of photos for flower porn today, so I’m offering something else. A few posts back, LOLTHULHU made an appearance. It’s a parody of LOLCATS. With regard to the latter and the former, here’s what the blog formerly known as the Table of Malcontents (now Ectomo) had to…

Hitchens’ Supreme Sense of Humor

I concede. As self-deprecatory as I can be, I am left in the dust, gasping and quivering, by the mighty Christopher Hitchens who aptly displays the gloriously superior sense of humor that is characteristic of the human male. I am humbled, Mr. Hitchens. My hat’s off to you. In the latest Vanity Fair, Hitchens writes…

Beehived Babes, Big Blue & Univac

James Lileks maintains one of my favorite high-kitsch entertainment time-sinks, namely The Institute of Official Cheer. Lileks has scanned all sorts of advertisements, comics, and cookbooks (sp. The Gallery of Regrettable Food) from the 30, 40s, 50s and 60s, and then has commented on them. Some of his text makes me smile. Some makes me…

Whip(key) It Good!

A 53 year old Colorado priest faces indecent exposure charges for jogging naked at a local track according to the AP. The priest, Robert Whipkey, claims that he sweats profusely while running, and as he was running in the very early morning prior to sunrise, he didn’t think anyone would be around to notice. Why…

UK gold medalist in the triple jump, Jonathon Edwards, long known for his wear-it-on-your-sleeve Christianity, has admitted to apostasy. Here is an article in The Times Online. It’s a good read. Here’s an out take: Once you start asking yourself questions like, ‘How do I really know there is a God?’ you are already on…

“Your children, like or not, are attracted in their weaker years to the occult…” Sit in on an actual gaming session with the Dead Alewives’ Watchtower and see for yourself! 8-bit D&D from Cyber Moon Studios. Sent to me by my delightfully nerdsome son, a D&D aficionado, who sports a permanent “Kick Me” sign on…

Rockin’ Dawkins

But he don’t pay no mind to no intelligent design. He’ll tell you how it’s absurd. He’s evolution’s top banana and he’s married to Romana and that kinda makes him king of the nerds! Check out Mitch Benn’s (indie UK musician) “Richard Dawkins” number. It’s in the downloads box on the right section of his…

Hitchens on Falwell, via Slate

They say good things (or is it bad?) come in threes. Check out Hitchens’ article in Slate. Here’s an exerpt: All bigots and frauds are brothers under the skin. Trying to interrupt the fiesta of piety on national television on the night of Falwell’s death, I found myself waiting while Ralph Reed went all moist…
