The very definition of religion

"Think less, pray more" is the perfect definition of religion. God doesn't want you to think, that's why he gave you a brain.

Rob Ford - A New Record

It was a mighty effort but Rob Ford has finally managed to surpass his old record of five apologies an hour. He spent a great deal of time preparing for this day and he finally made it. Now if he could only manage to stop fucking up seven times an hour, he might actually get somewhere. You go Rob.

A Very Heisenberg Christmas

Yeah, I found the picture on the Internets, and I wouldn't mind making one, if I did that sort of thing.

Big Red Is Down!

I think the caption should be; "Big red is down, oh the humanity!"

Fake Sign Language

There are reports that the person who was interpreting at the funeral for Nelson Mandela, the guy who was up on stage with many leaders past and present from the entire world, and signing for the deaf, was a fake. A big old phony who was pretty much just waving his arms and hands around like a bird pretending to have a broken wing to lead a hunter away from it's young, except with even less meaning. On the international bizarre scale, this is a full on b-16 out of 7 (like I said, it's a bizarre scale), and it is getting bizarrer by the moment.

Bruno Druchen, the head of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said the "interpreter" was, "moving his hands around but there was no meaning in what he used his hands for." When asked about this, a spokesman for the governing ANC party said, "government will be able to assist you." So this means that either the spokesman didn't understand the question, or that ironically, he himself is deaf.

I'm trying to see what the upside to doing something like this would be, or how someone could think they could get away with this. Does whoever arranged for this guy think that nobody would notice? Deaf people don't watch TV? Then why have him on in the first place? This is a weird story for sure and I'm looking forward to seeing how it's going to all fall out.

The War on the War on the War on Christmas

The thing I “like” about the Fox News Service is how on one hand they have this self image of the self reliant, ready to take care of business, fearless Americanism, and on the other hand they are absolutely terrified of everything. The world is out to get them, be afraid, and by the way, the atheists are out to get rid of Christmas. This is, of course, complete bullshit, but it keeps them happy.

See, the thing is that atheists can’t be bothered to have a war on Christmas. There are way more important things to do and doing battle with Jolly Saint Nick is just not worth the effort. And if Christians want to go to church and be all pious and stuff, hey, get ‘er done. Just keep it out of my face and we’ll all be fine. I’ll make fun of you and, well, whatever. It’s all good.

So where does Fox News get it’s “facts”? Well they seem to spend a great deal of time searching out that one school in the continental United States that has a holiday pageant rather than a Christmas pageant. If a company doesn’t drench their stores in red, green and silver bunting, then obviously they are totally anti Christmas. This is what passes for “logic” and “journalistic integrity” at Fox News. The sad thing is that now I get to say “WTF” with them.

Today I received a mass e-mail thing from one of the largest internet service providers in Canada. It mentioned the holidays a lot, and mentioned the holiday season, but the word Christmas was curiously absent. How utterly, utterly odd I thought to myself as I opened it and got ready to toss it into the recycling. Then three postcards dropped out. Of course the first thing I thought there was, why would an internet service provider be sending our snail mail items? That’s weird (or it‘s ironic - either/or I guess). Then I looked at the post-cards, which are to be used to connect with friends and family during the holiday season, and none of them mention Christmas either. Okay, now that is just a little bit silly.

Obviously not everybody buys into the currently popular heavily edited version of the Christmas story, with no room at the Inn and all that noise (I mean really, where is the slaughter of the innocents? Get your Matthew on and remember, old King Herod was bat-shit crazy!), but the 25th of December is still called Christmas. I mean seriously, if anybody is loony enough to bitch every time they see the word ‘Christmas‘, well it’s time to take the string and gum away from those dudes because you just don’t know what they’ll get up to next.

So there are nimrods on both sides of this thing (I can’t even call it an ‘issue’), but the war on Christmas side does seem to have more than it’s fair share. So there’s no war on Christmas, but at times there does seem to be some folks out there who are afraid to use the word Christmas, and that’s just sad.
