Pharyngula

And this month’s winner of the coveted and prestigious Molly award is … Ichthyic. He handily beat out the inanimate carbon rod, fortunately.

    “He handily beat out the inanimate carbon rod, fortunately.”

    Oh yeah? Well, I demand a recount!

    Car-bon rod! Car-bon rod! Car-bon rod!

    Well, I suppose that congratulations are in order for ichthyic’s victory over the inanimate carbon rod, but I hope everyone realizes this is only going to discourage the inanimate carbon rod from ever writing another one of its brilliant comments.

    And that’s just sad.

    Ah, just noticed this; been a bit busy of late actually trying to catch up on some periodical reading.

    thanks much, all.

    For anyone interested in sharks, I did post a thread recently over on ATBC where I talked a bit about some of the things I used to work on with our cartilaginous friends (fiends?).

    Also, as promised, I’ll create a thread where those who voted for me can enter their favorite bit of bad sci-fi for consideration.

    (remember, that’s through the gate, right at the squid pits, and straight on from there).

    ITMT, since I often find myself listening to Green Day when I read the screeds of creobots on the web, I also find I can’t really express my thoughts about american creationists any better than they have:

    Don’t want to be an American idiot.
    Don’t want a nation under the new media
    And can you hear the sound of hysteria?
    The subliminal mind f*ck America.

    Welcome to a new kind of tension.
    All across the alien nation.
    Where everything isn’t meant to be okay.
    Television dreams of tomorrow.
    We’re not the ones who’re meant to follow.
    For that’s enough to argue.

    Well maybe I’m the fa**ot America.
    I’m not a part of a redneck agenda.
    Now everybody do the propaganda.
    And sing along to the age of paranoia.

    Welcome to a new kind of tension.
    All across the alien nation.
    Where everything isn’t meant to be okay.
    Television dreams of tomorrow.
    We’re not the ones who’re meant to follow.
    For that’s enough to argue.

    Don’t want to be an American idiot.
    One nation controlled by the media.
    Information age of hysteria.
    It’s calling out to idiot America.

    Welcome to a new kind of tension.
    All across the alien nation.
    Where everything isn’t meant to be okay.
    Television dreams of tomorrow.
    We’re not the ones who’re meant to follow.
    For that’s enough to argue.

    Three Cheers for Ichthyic! Yaaaaaay!

    Ok, I’m only allowed one Cheer. But it was loud!

    You forgot the “, OM”, Ichthyic.

    yeah, too late to go back and edit.

    oh well.

    frankly, I’m surprised you didn’t grab this one.

    You’ve won bragging rights, man! Use them!

    SHHHH! would YOU want to brag to the almighty carbon rod??

    I’m not taking any chances.

    well, just this once…

    Is the carbon rod smarter than this stick?

    Creepiest. Stick. Ever.

    You’ll have to wait a few weeks before you can nominate the stick for a molly.

    Congrats, Ichthyic!

    Don’t let the carbon rod divert you from your bliss. Repeat after me: OM, O-M, O-O-MM, O-O-MM,…

    Pssh, an inanimate carbon rod only goes for 200, 300 influence, tops… even at peak server hours. Hardly fair competition.

    Next up, we gotta get him a guppy.
