Quote of the Day

Moreover, there is a group of people that believes the Danes are lying when they say they're the happiest people on the planet. This group is known as "Danes."

Poe's Law

Without a blatant display of humor, it is impossible to create a parody of extremism or fundamentalism that someone won't mistake for the real thing.

Alternate form:

Any sufficiently advanced troll is indistinguishable from a genuine kook.

Poe's Law in Action: Beware the New Elite Shape-Shifting Jews

Sadly this is not satire nor advanced trolling.

The man, who gave his named as "Mohamed," also said he was a devout Muslim but then changed his demeanor and added, grinning, that he was also "a delinquent." Then he said he was a drug dealer and without prompting, invited the reporter into the (also very clean) gas station to show an array of hashish for sale in broad daylight on a shelf next to the ATM.

He also called the Paris terrorist attacks "un complot," or conspiracy, and launched into a lengthy explanation of the "magical Jews" behind it. They were not ordinary Jews, he said, but a "hybrid race of shape shifters" who have extraordinary abilities. "They know how to get in everywhere," he said. "They are master manipulators."

I just thank God that the SSJs don't have access to a time machine yet.

Poe's Law Part Deux: Naomi Wolf is Off Her Meds Again

Obama's 2004 Anti-Promises

Neo-neocon points out this excerpt from Obama's 2004 speech at the Democratic national convention which completely makes sense when you realize that he was actually speaking in the Bizarro mode.

That is the true genius of America, a faith.a faith in simple dreams, an insistence on small miracles; that we can tuck in our children at night and know that they are fed and clothed and safe from harm; that we can say what we think, write what we think, without hearing a sudden knock on the door; that we can have an idea and start our own business without paying a bribe; that we can participate in the political process without fear of retribution; and that our votes will be counted - or at least, most of the time.

Hey is thing even working?

A French Immigrant to America Explains the Charlie Hebdo Phenomenon to His Yankee Hosts

Team America: The Magazine? (Warning: NSFWish)

...First off, French humor in general is far more rude and crass than American humor. We're not nearly as prudish as Americans in general are, and culturally much more confrontational than Americans, who already are a very confrontational bunch by world's standards.

Evidently, it's impossible to give a proper comparison or point of reference in the American pop culture, especially being an immigrant that knows very little about American pop culture.

As it stood 2 days ago, the best humor equivalent I can think of would be some moments in the movie Team America, World Police: getting a point across in and crude way, uncaring of people's opinions and beliefs, and primarily for shits and giggles. Here's a very Charlie Hebdo moment in this movie: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2cV_q-mVAAA

The 97% Myth is 100% Wrong

Just like the 4 out of 5 Dentists myth.

Army Wife Shoots Her Husband When He Unexpectedly Returns Home With Breakfast

Instead of going to work at Fort Bragg, Mr. Seguel went get his wife breakfast from a local restaurant.

When he came back the alarm went off, notifying Mrs. Seguel that someone was in the home. She armed herself.

When Mr. Seguel touched the door handle to their bedroom, Mrs. Seguel fired a single shot through the door that struck him in the chest*.

The couple is extremely fortunate; the bullet that struck Mr. Seguel in the chest only did "superficial damage," and he will be released from the hospital today.
