  1. That plane’s airworthiness looks fallible.

    1. What are you simple? It’s clearly an improved blimp design.

      1. Plane? Blimp? WTF? It’s a morbidly obese Snoopy, you fools

        1. What did he eat the rest of the cast of Peanuts and end up surrounded by pigpen’s microbial cloud?

        2. ^^THIS

          Glad ifh can see the Charles Schulz through the penumbra and emanation of His Holiness transport device.



          1. *slap!*

        3. What happened to his ears?

          1. He ate them

            1. So he’s more like Doraemon then.

      2. It’s clearly an improved blimp design.

        That runs on fairy dust and unicorn farts. Those aren’t jet engines, they’re unicorn fart collectors which are then combusted with the fairy dust, which as everyone knows produces only gumdrops and rainbows.

  2. There seems to be an insufficient quantity of labels.

    1. You can never have too many labels.

      1. So, do we have judgment as to the quality of this offering of Mr. Payne’s?

  3. I get it – so perfectly awful.

  4. As ifh begins to note above, MAN, Snoopy’s put on some weight.

    Awful, therefore, perfect.

    Happy fucking Friday, Reasonoids. Hope you all choke on Cheetos while ranting at the TV over something El Popo Loco says at the UN today.

    Also, for those not already touched by His Eminent Domain –


  5. I don’t think it is fair to bust this pope on the “you are a hypocrite on global warming because you fly a private jet” angle.

    This guy is pretty renowned for being a “simple life” kind of guy. He eschews the papal mansion and lives in the dorm, eats in the cafeteria with the staff. There’s not much he can do about the jet – he can’t exactly fly commercial.

    His ideas about economics might be a little nutty, but for a head of state he’s pretty decent at downplaying the perks of high office.

    1. My understanding from the irritating live reports here on the local radio was that he was, in fact, flying commercial a couple times yesterday.

      Regardless – fuck him and his misunderstanding that the US isn’t fucking Argentina, and that capitalism’s only failing is that it can’t lift people out of poverty as fast as the fucking policies and ideas he supports put them into it.

      *flips bird*

      1. Right on, bro.

      2. the US isn’t fucking Argentina


    2. This guy is pretty renowned for being a “simple life” kind of guy. He eschews the papal mansion and lives in the dorm, eats in the cafeteria with the staff.

      As he and his admirers never stop reminding us, over and over and over.

      Honestly, I have trouble trusting anyone who makes that ostentatious a display of their modesty. It usually means they’re someone who values the public plaudits more than their own happiness and comfort. And people like that rarely see fit to deny others their happiness and comfort.

      As I suggested yesterday, he could be a great guy and a swell fellow. Or he could be a complete and total dick. I’m inclined to bet on the latter.

      That said, the commercial air point is a fair cop.

      1. Somebody warned of that, I think…

        6 Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.

        2 Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

        3 But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:

        4 That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.

        5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

    3. Well, he could have just Skyped his stupid-ass speech, if he was that concerned about it.


    /pope fans who think they’re at a bassetbaw game

    1. *waves giant Fathead of Cardinal Richelieu*

  7. Ok, Payne, this one just sucks improperly inflated monkey-balls.

    1. So….just what is the “proper” inflation of simian testicles? Wait..don’t answer that!

  8. Could’ve just named it “Con Air 2” and saved us the giant post it.

  9. It’s a good thing Payne didn’t actually try to “draw” the Pope, or a bunch of irate Catholics would riot and try to cut off the heads of everyone at Reason.

    Did I get that right? Or was it the other Religion of Peace?

  10. Is that second row of windows supposed to be glory holes?

  11. Beautiful, absolutely beautiful.
