Late Night Open Thread: Dum Dum Dum, Dum Dum!Posted: April 26, 2012
I still am unable to bring myself to write about all the horrible things I read in the news today. From Egypt passing laws that will make necrophiliacs rejoice, to the House passing Cispa and Rush calling Hillary just a Secretary, and the GOP holding preventive care hostage in the student loan wars…and other things to depressing to mention!
So I wanted to post something light tonight. Earlier today, Boston Boomer mentioned the story of Joseph Smith, the guy who founded the Mormon religion. So I thought I would link to South Park’s take on the subject. (And as you watch it, remember this is not made up! For although it seems to be a joke, the stuff about the angel and the forest and the rest is true.)
The link to the full episode is here:
And if you do not have time to watch it, you can see the first part of the Song of John Smith here:Vodpod videos no longer available.
I agree with BB, this religion is like Scientology. Which, by the way, also got the South Park treatment. What Scientologist Actually Believe (Season 9, Episode 12) – Video Clips – South Park Studios
Anyway, let me take a couple of moments to bring you some funny cartoons…
Oh yeah baby!
“the Nuge” caught a lot of hell when he said at an NRA rally that he will either be dead or in jail after Obama’s victory in November. He also said at the same event that “We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off.” No word on whether he was wearing animal skins and wielding a stone ax.Lots of people made fun of him for his hyperbole, rightly so. The prostitute-loving Secret Service even paid him a visit. “The Nuge” defended himself on Right Wing Radio, bemoaning, “I’m a black Jew at a Nazi-Klan Rally!”
The poor guy.The Secret Service determined that “the Nuge” was just talking out his butt. No big whoop. They concluded there was no real threat. He was just exercising his God-given right to say creepy things about a Democratic president. Very little, if anything, should happen to him. I mean, it’s not like he’s the Dixie Chicks, who said back in ‘03, “We do not want this war, this violence, and are ashamed that the President of The United States is from Texas.” That treasonous little outburst resulted in the Chicks receiving on-air death threats, being labelled as traitors, and having their music pulled from radio play. The Chicks, though, were women and should’ve known their place. Plus, they were criticizing war (America’s pastime) and a white Republican president. They deserved what they got.
