Christianity: World’s Longest Running Gag?

sargon13500 years ago, a popular Babylonian zinger had a similar set-up and punch-line with “The Greatest Story Ever Told.”

The deflowered (girl) did not become pregnant.
The un-deflowered (girl) became pregnant (-What is it?”)

Answer: Auxiliary Forces

el-oh-el, or should I say, el-oh-im(?) Anyway, as a connoisseur of “Joke” religions I find this QUITE intriguing.

The hilarity continues (page 124)

Google Wants To Stop Spreading Santorum

Spreading Santorum… but there’s just no way to put the stuff back where it came from! Danny Sullivan explains at SearchEngineLand:

As Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum loses two primary races to rival Mitt Romney, perhaps he can console himself with, ironically, another loss. Spreading Santorum, the page defining “santorum” as a by-product of anal sex, has finally dropped from the top results on Google. The related anti-Santorum blog, however, remains. And a page from Urban Dictionary keeps the definition alive, more explicit than before.

Santorum: The Definition Page
The page at SpreadingSantorum.com, created by columnist Dan Savage as a protest against Santorum’s views about homosexuality, has maintained its position in the top results on Google for years. The page defines “santorum” as:

The frothy mixture of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the by-product of anal sex.

To understand more of the history of the site, and how it ended up doing so well on Google (and Bing, Yahoo and Baidu), see my previous article, Should Rick Santorum’s “Google Problem” Be Fixed?

MAD Magazine’s Banana Republicans

Bryan Young, producer of the disinformation-distributed film Killer At Large, author and blogger, has turned up some MAD Magazine gems for Huffington Post:

The usual gang of idiots over at MAD Magazine have come up with what I think is one of their funniest political spreads over. Hitting newsstands next week will be a “Banana Republican” catalogue and Huffington Post readers get to see it first.

I wonder how the GOP all-stars feel about appearances in MAD Magazine. Do they think it’s an honor to be poked fun at by a magazine that’s been doing it for so long? Do they shrug it off, assuming that only morons and teenagers (and teenage morons) read it?

Or do they get upset that the media is taking yet another easy potshot at their clear lack of sensibility? Can you imagine the kind of mind that would be upset by appearing in MAD Magazine?

Brits Have Too Many Holidays For A ‘Broke Country’

Screen shot 2012-01-03 at 2.06.38 PMHappy New Year, y’alls.  Looks like at least one of your wishes may have started coming true already.  Dylan Welch from the Sydney Morning Herald reports on Rupert Murdoch’s meticulous documentation of his own descent into senility:

“Either @rupertmurdoch is genuinely now on Twitter, or some disgruntled ex-NOTW journo just won the hacking Olympics.”

Less than two days after joining Twitter, media mogul Rupert Murdoch appears to have had his first brush with tweeting-before-thinking, after suggesting that the British have too many holidays for a “broke country”.

Though Mr Murdoch, who joined Twitter less than 48 hours ago and already has almost 40,000 followers, quickly deleted the message, it was preserved by some Twitter users and quickly spread around the website.

“Maybe Brits have too many holidays for broke country!” Mr Murdoch, who is holidaying on the Caribbean island of Saint Barthelemy, wrote about 6am Australian time.

Publish and be damned ... the tweet that Murdoch withdrew.
