Just because. . .

I’m writing hard and have no neurons to spare after I exhausted them one my Ecklund post this morning. So let’s have some fun.  First, a contribution by a puckish reader, who has embellished Courtney Love’s diagram of the Malaysian Airline crash: See what you started, Matthew?

Did Courtney Love find the missing Malaysia Air jet?

Well, I suppose her chances are at least as good as those of Uri Geller.  Courtney Love posted this photo and caption on her Facebook page yesterday (I presume the scrawls are hers):

Horsehead squirrel feeder

What twisted mind thought up this way of degrading our rodential friends? Nevertheless, this device at leasts feeds them as it degrades them: Available from Archie McPhee for only $15.00:

Great news: I’m the Discovery Institute’s “Censor of the Year”!

I have more substantive things to post today, but stuff like sick kittens, and now this Big Announcement, keep getting in the way. In this case I’m so proud I could bust a button! Reader Doc Bill just informed me that I was selected from a field of stiff competitors (including anticreationism activist Zack Kopplin) […]

What we’re up against

BuzzFeed’s Matt Stopera (who also took the photos shown below ) collected 22 pictures of people who attended the Ham/Nye debate in Kentucky and identified themselves as creationists.

In the website post on this, the author avers that he/she likes New Scientist (I don’t: I deplore its […]

On Wednesday, in the Italian city of Rieti, a 31-year-old nun experienced severe stomach pains, and went to the hospital. A few hours later she gave birth to a healthy baby boy. As the Torygraph reports: The discovery of her pregnancy has embarrassed the Catholic Church in Italy, with the local bishop saying that she […]

Religious humor

I’ve finally collected enough of these to post. The first is about as succinct a summary of Christianity as I’ve seen: A reader whose name I forgot (sorry!) sent me this photo, and I’ve added the caption: And I love this one, also sent by a reader whose name escapes me: h/t: The readers whose […]

With a LOLzy comment: CATS: The Official Pet of Atheists™ h/t: Pyers  

Jesus appears in a shower

This shower (not a staged phot!o) is bound to become a relic, and were I the reader who sent it, Rik Gern, I’d be prepared to be inundated by Catholics. There’s money to be made! Gern’s caption for this photo is “Jebus is washing you.” Gern, by the way, was the owner of Kitt E. […]
