  1. Garrison Keillor has been fired from Minnesota Public Radio over accusations of sexual harassment.

    Can this movement abide the loss of so many of our precious liberals?

    1. Hello.

      1. I’m going through withdrawals Rufus. Can I convince you to set up a moose accident if I send my IT guy over the wall?

    2. The firing squads will continue. We don’t care if you supported the revolution, if you’re found to be an enemy of the people, there will be justice.

    3. Garrison Keillor will always make me think of Homer Simpson saying “Stupid TV, be more funny!”

  2. “Ralph Nader might have saved the Democratic Party.”

    He sure didn’t do much for the Green Party.

  3. After all, Nader’s presence on the ballot in Florida almost certainly narrowly cost Democratic nominee Al Gore the state and thus the election

    This myth will never, ever go away.

    1. Yep. I remember arguing about that until I was blue in the face with Team Blue retards that kept at it. For every item they pulled up that supposedly was enough to change the election, I was able to come up with another that was more than enough to counter it. Opposing the butterfly ballot was the fact that the media called Florida for Gore before the polls closed in the Florida panhandle (Florida is in 2 timezones), a heavily Bush-friendly section of Florida.

      1. So you’re saying that they wouldn’t have called it early if Nader weren’t on the ticket? It’s possible, but it’s a counterfactual universe with a lot of variables. That’s not a rebuttal.

        Besides, you can forget Florida if you want. Nader definitely flipped New Hampshire with 4% of the vote.

        1. “So you’re saying that they wouldn’t have called it early if Nader weren’t on the ticket? It’s possible, but it’s a counterfactual universe with a lot of variables. That’s not a rebuttal.”

          Are you actually being serious here or making a little joke by pretending to flagrantly miss the point?

          Just in case it’s the former, he’s saying the early call massively fucked up the result. Without that particular instance of “fake news” keeping people from bothering to vote in every one of the remaining four timezones, Bush might’ve won the popular vote too, and might have won even with Nader in the race. He’s saying to pick only the details that hurt Gore and ignore those that hurt Bush is cherry-picking.

  4. President Trump took to Twitter to revive a conspiracy theory about Joe Scarborough killing an intern.

    That does seem like something he would do.

    1. As long as he didn’t molest the intern first?

      I don’t know, this sounds super-weird, one would hope the President of the U. S. would make sure of his facts before making such a serious….hahaha I almost finished that sentence with a straight face!

    2. Trump or Scarborough? (yes I know, embrace the healing power of “and”)

  5. Former Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher called Jeremy Corbyn a “communist” and called politicians “fucking idiots.”

    If he didn’t also hit them he was technically being polite.

  6. Former Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher called Jeremy Corbyn a “communist” and called politicians “fucking idiots.”

    On one hand, I love when people accuse people of being communists, on the other hand Oasis.

    1. There are worse bands.

      1. Damning with faint praise there.

        1. Praising with faint damning you mean.

        1. Blur

          /runs from retro pissing match

          1. “/runs from retro pissing match”

            Don’t look back in anger.

        2. REd Hot chili peppers.

          1. Nope sorry they’re good. Hate to admit but they are artists.

          2. Hey, the Chili Peps were a fun band up through One Hot Minute.

            1. Fuck them, Anthony Kiedis killed Mr. Bungle.

              1. Well NOW I have a reason to dislike them beyond “they just don’t do it for me.” Thanks, BUCS!

        3. Stone Temple Pilots and for two.

          1. Liked them better than most of the grunge crap. “Seattle sound” is Hendrix.

            1. I will fucking discuss with you RIGHT NOW if you are shitting on Alice in Chains.

                1. Fucking end to end.

                  Dirt? A fucking rock masterpiece.

                  Jar of Flies? One of the most beautiful albums of the 90s. Staley’s intensity on Nutshell brings me to tears.

                  Eponymous? Great, much more experimental and wandering than their previous work. They lowered the intensity but upped the oppressive gloominess of the music.

                  Unplugged? One of the best Unpluggeds. Bar none. Incredible arrangement of a dozen+ songs that were already amazing.

                  Even the work they did apart from it, Mad Season and Jerry Cantrell’s solo stuff was all impressive quality. Jerry Cantrell and Layne Staley were two of the greatest song writers of that time period. Bar none.

                  Robert Christgau can go fuck himself. He has shit taste.

                  1. As much I like BUCS and his nsexual orgies, it must be said that he has shit taste.
                    It’s truly a sad day.

                    1. My number one opinion non political opinion people discredit me for is my distaste for the Beatles.

                    2. The Kinks were better than the Beatles.

                  2. Their first album was facelift, which was a badass fucking album. Man in the Box is obviously the most famous song, but almost every track was great.

                    I am a mid 90s graduate, so I came up in the grunge era. Smashing Pumpkins and Alice in Chains were always my favorites. I still listen to each quite regularly.

          2. RHCP and STP? What do you have against unwieldily named SoCal bands with great bassists?

        4. REM. See Denis Leary’s excellent rant about them.

          1. REM for three. God they suck.

          2. You sure it’s a Leary rant and not just more stolen material from Hicks?

        5. Hole

        6. C’mon guys. The list is endless: Coldplay, Maroon 5, any other band with a number in their name, Nickelback, all emo bands, nu metal (though I secretly like Linkin Park), and so on…

          1. I openly like a couple of supposed emo bands. Rite of Spring was great. I like My Chemical Romance. Liked early Fall Out Boy. I also love the Backstreet Boys, wanted to throw that out there.

          2. All of that and one Limp Bizkit to spare. And I secretly like Cold Play. We all have our guilty pleasures.

          3. Linkin Park is not metal in any way. #KillKillKillTheFalse

          4. The Jackson Five did not suck.

            1. Neither did Catch-22. Or 2gether.

          5. Not every band with a number in their name is bad.

            The 5,6,7,8s are nice. Unless you have something against hot Japanese girls on stage barefoot playing rockabilly.

        7. Government allegedly exists to prevent atrocities from taking place, yet Smashmouth still plays on the radio

          1. Have you listened to Mouth Sounds? The greatest All-Stars remix album of all time?

            1. And people were wondering why Chief Nazi Hunter positions were still needed in this day and age.

              1. Mouth Sounds
                Mouth Silence
                Mouth Moods

                One of the greatest musical trilogies of all time.

      1. About as long as Alanis Morisette was ‘cool’.

        1. That was back in the day when sounding like gypsy actually sold albums.

          1. Gogol Bordello being the height of that.

            1. I take your Gogol Bordello and raise you a Taraf de Haidouks.

      Former Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher called Jeremy Corbyn a “communist” and called politicians “fucking idiots.”
      On one hand, I love when people accuse people of being communists, on the other hand Oasis.

      To be fair, Noel Gallagher was not off the mark. The Communists have thrown their support behind Corbyn.
      Communist support for Corbyn
      “They have concluded that Jeremy Corbyn is one of their own and they have chosen to lend the Labour Party their full support. “

      1. The 90’s, eh? Gov’t Mule

  7. A computer glitch at American Airlines led to every pilot on staff getting Christmas off.

    The War on Christmas is finally over!

    1. Last time a computer glitch won me anything good, the boss said, “It was a computer glitch. Get back to work.”

      Seriously, they’re talking about schedules that don’t go into effect until December 17. This is not a national crisis. Rewrite the schedules.

      1. Their union probably insisted the employment contract including a clause saying schedules can’t be changed in any way that will lead to more work.

  8. Two American men honeymooning in Thailand were arrested after they posted photos to Instagram of themselves showing their butts at a temple.

    Their wives must be mortified.

    1. Thailand canes people. I doubt they will be showing their butts to anyone other than a doctor very soon. What a couple of dumbasses.

      1. Intended butt caning?

    2. Gee, I wonder why they chose Thailand of all places.

      1. Well, I’ve only been as close as Malaysia, but I hear that the food is good.

        1. Malaysia-Malaysia or Burma-Malaysia?

        2. Bangkok is a pit. Every block is a spin of the roulette wheel: will it smell like open sewer or not? But good news, the Sukhumvit stalls with Viagra and Cialis and silicone dildos in all the neon colors are finally making their comeback after the coup! Can’t wait to have the Durex back on display in the courtesy bar!

  9. Matt Lauer once gave a colleague a sex toy as a present. It included an explicit note about how he wanted to use it on her, which left her mortified. On another day, he summoned a different female employee to his office, and then dropped his pants, showing her his penis. After the employee declined to do anything, visibly shaken, he reprimanded her for not engaging in a sexual act.”

    http://variety.com/2017/biz/ne…..202625959/

    What is it with these guys and showing their junk? Weinstein, Louis CK, Rosen and now Lauer.

    1. I thought that was one of the first parts of having sex. Was this another thing I was lied to about?

      1. yeah, there is a whole lot that comes before that for most people. Sadly, walking around showing women your junk as an invitation for sex doesn’t work very well if you are not a baboon and even then that only works if the females are in season.

        1. What’s baboon season? Asking for a friend. (That friend is Crusty)

        2. I don’t know. A guy once surprised by whipping his hard dick out in my car. I thought he and I were just going to be friends when I picked him up that day. Long story short, round one was nice, but he couldn’t keep up with me during round two. That sex addiction diagnosis he got was complete BS.

      2. What’s wrong with a kiss, boy? Hmm? Why not start her off with a nice kiss? … You don’t have to go leaping straight for the clitoris like a bull at a gate. Give her a kiss, boy.

      3. Only if you are circumsized.

    2. #ProudOfMrPeepers

    3. It’s weird as shit. It’s like some sort of condition we’re learning about.

      It never occurred to me to do that and I mean, come on. Look at me!

      Also. Lauer sounds like an asshole.

    4. Women complain about not being courted anymore, but when a man does it suddenly he’s a monster. MAKE UP YOUR MINDS, LADIES.

      1. That’s why Crusty just uses the line on the ladies, “Does this rag smell like chloroform?”

    5. I have to say, I’m rather shocked at this explosion of accusations. I suspect they’re going after “the usual suspects,” but it’s a little weird how much this skews leftwards. For now, anyway.

      1. I think it might just be a sampling bias. This is mostly media people currently, there are like 3 non-liberals in the field and people won’t talk to them on principle.

        1. There are moments where I think there’s a bigger, politically motivated reason for all of this. And being accused doesn’t make one guilty, though there seems to be evidence for the current crop.

        2. And Fox had a bit of housecleaning before this Moment.

          1. True. And there’s the Coz.

        3. You may have forgotten, but the conservatives at Fox News have had more than their fair share of these. They just came a little before the most recent wave.

          1. They just came a little…

            I bet they did.

            1. Trickle down economics?

          2. I think we are hearing about so many liberals because the media got away with covering for them for so long. Now they can’t do that and we are seeing a whole lot of backlog coming out that doesn’t exist for conservatives. Right wing degenerates don’t’ get away with so long.

      2. The current Sexual Panic was never intended to hit on the left side of the political spectrum. This was a Clinton op from the get-go that was supposed to take down Trump.

        Apparently a lot of women decided they were tired of “taking one for the team” and decided to go after Groping Leftist Icons instead.

        1. I think they were stunned when they failed to take down Trump. So, I think the reason why they have now been more willing to turn on leftist men over this stuff is that Trump winning made them realize that defending Clinton had deprived them of the ability to attack Republicans over this kind of stuff.

      3. They did go after the usual suspects. Kaiser Soze hardest hit.

    6. What I find interesting about the penis-showing detail in the story is how the Media seem to be trying their best not to notice the similarities between Matt and our 42nd president.

      Dropping trou in front of a female subordinate and demanding she render service is one of Bill’s classic moves. I wonder if that’s where Matt got the idea it would work.

    7. Why are dick pics such a, erm, big thing?

    8. Man, that is not proper workplace behavior.

    9. I’m guessing their behavior was motivated by the fact that it actually worked sometimes.

  10. A computer glitch at American Airlines led to every pilot on staff getting Christmas off.

    Even the Jewish ones?

    1. Of course, they always get Chosen.

    2. Atheists hardest hit.

  11. “It is the most disgusting thing I’ve seen in a long time,” Efraim Zuroff, the Wiesenthal Center’s chief Nazi hunter, said in 2015 about the exhibition.

    I’m often called soft on crime, but I got to wonder how necessary the position of Chief Nazi Hunter was in 2015.

    1. There’s plenty of Hitler Youth still alive.

        1. Please don’t drag Ghost into this.

          1. Papa Emeritus III is the best vocalist they have had so far.

            1. They are all the same guy

    2. Even Hitler’s clones are senior citizens now.

    3. I will bet my next paycheck this game of Nekkid Nazi Death Camp Tag was paid for by some form of government funding.

    4. Based on the shrieking going on for the last 12 months, apparently it was a very important job not being done very well.

  12. What a fun day. On top of everything else, the White House employed the ‘fake but accurate’ excuse, and the NYT Editorial Board embraced Citizens United.

  13. President Trump took to Twitter to revive a conspiracy theory about Joe Scarborough killing an intern.

    I know it’s just an intern but, really, they should investigate it.

    1. You libertarians can’t simultaneously advocate for financial restraint AND call for investigations into every intern murdered. You have to choose.

      1. Instead of launching all these witch hunts, how about we teach interns not to get murdered? Huh?

        1. So now you want millennials to LEARN things? This is contradiction after contradiction.

    2. Hey, you have one intern turn up dead in your house and everyone wants to make a big deal about it and get the police involved and expect an explanation for what happened. The nerve of these people.

      1. It wasn’t in his house, and the police did look into it. What needs investigating is why Trump is such a whackjob that he keeps latching onto stupid conspiracy theories.

        1. Then I guess he has nothing to worry about. And Trump isn’t a whackjob. Trump just knows how to screw with people.

          1. Right. He was just screwing with people when he was embracing whacky antivax theories too. He’s just a nut. It’s really that simple.

            1. Why can’t you understand he’s playing 14 dimensional scrabble?

              1. Why can’t you understand he’s playing 14 dimensional scrabble?

                People keep making this joke–as if it’s clever.

                But here’s the thing, in power games, on Earth, there’s really only one prize to be won–‘leader of the free world’

                And he won it. There’s no ‘up’ from there unless you make one.

                As far as 14 dimenisional scrabble goes, games over. The sets been cleared up and put away.

                Whatever game he’s playing now is on a tabletop you’re not even good enough to see

    3. Think we could get Britches to intern for “Mornin’ Joe”?

      You know, to help round out his resume …

    4. It’s not like he’s a Kennedy or something, right?

  14. Looks like I picked a good day to stop responding to Trump’s bizarre tweets. He is not well.
    ? Joe Scarborough (@JoeNBC) November 29, 2017

    No longer even pretending to be the curious news gatherer.

    1. Looks like I picked a good day to stop responding to Trump’s bizarre tweets. He is not well.

      THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT A MURDERER WOULD SAY.

    2. Looks like I picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue.

  15. Nader’s thinking on crime and prisons has slowly become the default conventional wisdom within the Democratic Party

    Fuck them all if they won’t vote for us?

  16. US soldiers slaughter libertarians

    When the soldiers finished their search, they ordered the men to move with them towards the scene of the shooting. There Abdullahi and Goomey saw their fellow farmers’ bodies sprawled across the ground. The small pot that one of them had been using to make tea still stood upright near the corpses. And they also saw what they later estimated to be around 20 American soldiers standing around the bodies. A Somali National Army soldier who was at the scene estimated 10 to 12 Americans were there. Abdullahi felt his chest tighten as he heard his friend, Ali-waay, calling for help, blood from a gunshot wound pouring into the earth around him.

    One of the Somali soldiers ordered Abdullahi to put his head on the ground. The bottom of a boot belonging to an American soldier kept it there.

    THE U.S.-LED OPERATION on Aug. 25 would result in the death of 10 civilians, including at least one child, and become the largest stain on U.S. ground operations in the country since the infamous Black Hawk Down incident in 1993.

    1. I can’t believe that libertarian on libertarian violence has become so common.

      1. Have you never been to an LP convention?

    2. How did they get there without roadz?

    3. The details that emerged paint a damning picture of at least one U.S. ground operation in the African nation. This includes U.S. Special Operators firing upon unarmed civilians, using human intelligence from sources widely considered untrustworthy to Somalis in the region as well as government officials, and instructing their Somali counterparts to collect weapons that were being stored inside a home?not displaced on the field in the course of the firefight?and placing them beside the bodies of those killed prior to photographing them. In the aftermath of the incident, according to our sources, American diplomats also pressured the Somali government to bury the unfavorable findings of a Somali Federal Government-led investigation.

      If these operators are discharged, at least they’ll still have a career in law enforcement.

      1. They were just trying to make Somalia more like America. Is that so wrong?

        1. Oooh, the irony is so rich you could cut it with a blow torch.

      2. “Somali National Army”??
        “Somali Federal Government-led investigation”??

        I’m pretty suspicious about this whole story right there. I thought the whole place was a libertarian hellhole…errr…paradise with no FedGov and every clan their own army (though all the conflicts seemed to the the Achmeds vs. the Mohammeds).

  17. Controversy over footage of a naked game of tag filmed at a Nazi gas chamber in Poland that was part of an art installation.

    Too soon? And do we know it was actually filmed in the gas chamber? I mean, if they can make a sound stage look like the moon…

    1. They made the moon look like a sound stage. Think about it.

      1. Actually, the Moon was constructed in LEO some time ago.

        1. Constructed from Law Enforcement Officers? Well, i guess it puts them to some good use…

          1. No, no, no, Low Earth Orbit. That’s where they shot the Moon landings and movies featuring low gravity.

            You’re thinking of Project COPS (Creative Options for Police in Space).

            1. Well, NASA has announced a “potentially hazardous” asteroid. Maybe we outta send a few thousand up there to stop-and-frisk the asteroid and see if they can’t get it to go elsewhere.

              1. Space is all faked up. It’s just vacuum for billions of parsecs.

                1. It’s like God wanted life to flourish and evolve in a million different ways without them all killing each other.

  18. Two American men honeymooning in Thailand were arrested after they posted photos to Instagram of themselves showing their butts at a temple.

    I like to fly to conservative foreign nations with strong religious traditions and mock them. Transporting drugs is always a must as well.

    1. They already traveled to Thailand for non-business reasons. I’m already assuming they were fucking ladyboys.

      1. Is “fucking ladyboys” intended to be descriptive of the travelers or their activities?

        1. I can’t picture France being this hard on them for mooning the Notre Dame.

    2. So is speaking ill of their authoritarian leaders and informing local police officers how you are not subject their petty rules.

    3. They should have honeymooned at a Polish death camp instead.

      1. Honeymoon At a Polish Death Camp is an excellent name for a Post-Rock album.

        1. A postrock title would be more like:

          Honeymoon At A Polish Death Camp And Then A Thousand Stars Exploded Across Our Eyes While We Wept

          1. Some of the SONGS would be “Naked Tag”, “Assical Gas” and “Ladyboy, Ladyboy, Fly Away Home”, Kind of a FUN postrock/depressive mood.

      2. After seeing the picture, I have to wonder if they were really arrested for being the gayest couple in Thailand. Otherwise, someone needs to write an article about The Dark Side of Gay Marriage.

        1. Man, the neckline on that t-shirt…

          1. San Diego City Commissioner Nicole Murray-Ramirez said the men reached out to him for assistance. “Though I am very disappointed in their actions, I am talking to U.S. government officials to see what assistance we can give them,” Murray-Ramirez told San Diego Gay and Lesbian News.

            I’d say they’re going through the proper channels.

            1. Wouldn’t the San Francisco commissioner be the proper channel?

          2. According to reports, this is not the first time the couple have posted images of their naked backsides online. The now-deleted Instagram account, @traveling_butts, followed their adventures across the globe with pictures of their bare bottoms at famous tourist sites around the world.

            *facepalm*

            These guys are both 38 years old. Thirty…eight…

            1. Let them rot. Some people’s only value in life is to serve as a warning to others.

            2. Wait, wait…doesn’t that make the whole thing a “conceptual art project” and therefore defensible?? I mean, a fun film like “Death Camp Naked Tag” gets the huffy “Don’t you dare suppress art you Nazis…well, you Jewish Nazis.” defense, why not this.

              Plus we have the incessant mantra that “true art must shock”…so if those Thai prudes don’t like somebody giggling and farting all over their holy sites, too bad. They’ll just have to take it or face the wrath of the art community!!

    4. There are nothing but bad guys in this story. Making an ass of yourself in your guest’s house is bad form, but using the force of government because your sensibilities got hurt isn’t cool, either.

  19. http://twitter.com/thedailybea…..5908081664

    Lauer apparently had this annoying habit of grabbing Katie Couric’s ass. In fairness, Katie has a very grabable ass. But, how did anyone not pick up on this at that time?

    1. Katie Couric said it was Matt Lauer’s most “annoying” habit while appearing on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen”

      There’s a lot of material to work with in this sentence.

    2. Katie has a very grabable ass

      Come on. Some people are eating.

      1. I mean, we’ve seen that story, from the inside.

    3. His room was secluded room in the building, and (in Mr. Burns style) his desk had button that locked the door. A woman would comes in, he pushes the button, and bam, it’s game time.

      I don’t buy for a second that NBC was reacting to some sort of sudden bombshell. No even Bill O’reilly had this kind of accommodation.

      1. No one ever wondered why he wanted his own lair and kept inviting women there alone? Give me a break.

      2. probably had the btton lock installed under the guise of security considering how many angry husbands and boyfriends are out there threatening him

        1. Did he have another button that opened a trapdoor underneath unwelcome visitors?

          What about the “release the hounds” button?

          1. Or a “release the bees” button?? Or a “release the hounds with bees coming out of their mouths” button?

    4. But, how did anyone not pick up on this at that time?

      Everybody knew what he was doing. They covered it up because they didn’t want to get fired and blacklisted.

      Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely.

  20. Facebook caught allowing housing advertisers the ability to exclude based on race.

  21. I’m just glad that Captain Kangaroo and Mr. Rogers passed away before the “inappropriate conduct” whistleblowing started.

    1. Don’t go there. I served with both of them in ‘Nam.

        1. That’s right! Little-known fact: Mr. Greenjeans–Bob Dylan’s father–was in Special Forces and assassinated H? Ch? Minh in 1970 (he was replaced by a Thai actress).

          1. One urban myth that is true, is the Happy Trees painting guy really was a retired Air Force E-8. He said the reason he was so chill was that he spent 30 years being the guy who yelled at you for being late and he just wanted to be nice to people.

            1. Bob Ross, military career:

              Ross enlisted in the United States Air Force in 1961 at 18 years old and served as a medical records technician. He eventually rose to the rank of master sergeant and served as the first sergeant of the U.S. Air Force Clinic at Eielson Air Force Base in Alaska, where he first saw the snow and mountains that later became recurring themes in his artwork. He developed his quick-painting technique to create art for sale during brief daily work breaks. Having held military positions that required him to be, in his own words, “tough” and “mean”, “the guy who makes you scrub the latrine, the guy who makes you make your bed, the guy who screams at you for being late to work”, Ross decided that if he ever left the military, he would never scream again.

              1. He was such a great guy. He died an untimely death and fucking Garrison Keeler will likely live to a hundred subsisting on nothing but bile and hatred. Life really sucks sometimes.

                1. People actually insulted the guy. That makes no sense to me.

            2. Master Sergeant is E-7 in the USAF.

          2. Wasn’t Bob Dylan’s grandmother a Jimi Hendrix groupie?

            1. Back when Jimi lived in Duluth Minnesota?

  22. Garrison Keillor, Charlie Rose, Matt Lauer, What is it that makes Democrat guys run around harassing and sexually assaulting people?

    I’m sure someone’s digging up all the times they condemned Trump for his insensitive tweets, braggadocio, etc.

    If Billy Bush kept his mouth shut about Lauer, even after getting fired from them Billy is really . . . what’s the opposite of vindictive?

    Is it magnanimous?

    1. Stockholm Syndrom? Bush should have sold them out after that.

    2. They see people as objects?

    3. “Garrison Keillor, Charlie Rose, Matt Lauer, What is it that makes Democrat guys run around harassing and sexually assaulting people?”

      Let’s see, not all religious conservatives so we can’t use the “all religious people are overcompensating hypocrites” narrative, not all southerners so we can’t work the “primitive culture where that’s acceptable behavior” narrative here either. I got it: they’re men and all men are rapists.

  23. The game of naked tag is a real gas!

    1. I laughed so hard that I died.

    2. You know who else loved a good pun?

      1. Clearly NOT loveconstitution1789

        1. I did but I died laughing.

  24. “A computer glitch at American Airlines led to every pilot on staff getting Christmas off.”

    The glitch that stole Christmas?

  25. Is it me, or are these news stories getting weirder and weirder? Not worse per se, just weirder.

  26. “Well, it’s been a quite week in Lake Gropebegone…”

    1. Where the men are good looking, all the children are above average, and the women…. Dayum!!

      1. TLAH beat me to it

  27. In late-breaking news, Santa Claus has been fired after it was revealed that he paid a sexual-harassment settlement to Blitzen, using funds earmarked for maintenance expenses for Santa’s Workshop.

    And the sponsors of a night of drunken naked Twister said they had “no idea” the event was held as Auschwitz. “We thought we were at one of the local clubs,” said a spokesman. “But then, we may have made a wrong turn.”

  28. Noel Gallagher = Fuckin A!!!

  29. Meanwhile, the entire membership of Congress resigned after they all got anonymous letters only one sentence long: “Quit now or we’ll tell the media about you and the sheep.”

  30. Lake Wobegon , where “all the women are strong enough to #metoo, all the men are good looking enough to think they can get away with abusing co-workers, and all the children are above average.”

  31. Two American men honeymooning in Thailand were arrested after they posted photos to Instagram of themselves showing their butts at a temple.

    Meh.

    The Muslims in Jerusalem have a long tradition of presenting their butts to other people’s holy places. Check out the pic in this article about the situation on the Temple Mount.

  32. What all these old, seemingly harmless, male celebrities going out like punks, Leonard Cohen, god’s only true gift to women from what I can tell, chose a really good time to die.

  33. Whatever his politics, I will always love Garrison Keillor for the following:

    “My ancestors came to this country in order to enjoy greater religious restriction than permissible under English law.”

    Since my ancestors were among those doing just that. My whole family howled with the laughter of self-recognition.

    1. While I love a good pile-on* as much as the next witch-finder or L’Inquisitor Petit, the action of which Keillor is accused does not sound like any kind of sexual harassment. It sounds more like some slightly semi-sexualish uncomfortableness for which he apologized years ago and that did not cause the woman to avoid him or complain about him…until the current atmosphere of hysterical sexual panic.

      Hmmm….guess I’d better report my children being sacrificed to Satan and their blood imbibed by devil-worshippers….oh, wait…wrong decade. And it never happened.
