18 February 2018. You Can’t Make Up Shit Like This… Horns and Hoofs: Goat is Man’s Best Friend

******

________________________

Having a pet goat can be just as much fun as having a pet dog as the story of Jack Barrett, a football fan from Burnley in England, shows. They even hang out together in a local pub. Barrett, 40, loves spending time at the Angel Inn with his goat Eric, whom he named in honour of Eric Cantona, the legendary Man United forward. The owner says his pet friend enjoys being around people. Eric the goat is also familiar with fashion… his owner dresses him up before going out. Barrett jokes his goat leads a healthy lifestyle despite his regular appearances in the pub, having no alcohol, and only crisps as treats. Barrett, the father of two kids, said to the Mirror:

He only ever has water. I wouldn’t give my child beer, so why would I give it to my goat? He absolutely loves Quavers.

A Smile from the Babylon Bee… Russian Orthodox Church Accused of Interfering With Doctrine of Election

________________________

On Thursday, the nation’s agitated soteriologically Calvinistic Christians released another statement alleging that the Russian Orthodox Church has, and continues to, meddle in the historical Christian Doctrine of Election. A Reformed pastor, who declined to give his name, complained:

One can hardly read the comments under my blog without some mention of the Patriarch of Moscow, or #ReleaseTheWillFromBondage. The Russians have clearly weaponised their faulty theology against our precious doctrine. They think they have an ability to choose… but this is our election, and Totally Depraved Americans won’t stand for it!

Facebook and Twitter are feeling pressure to censor pro-Russian Orthodox dogma, which overran the two social media platforms through automated robotic posts. You can identify these Russian bots by their frequent use of icons, in contrast to the stoic emoticons familiar in Reformed social media posts. Russian President Vladimir Putin denied the charges of Russian Orthodox interference, saying:

Election is hardly a Russian concern.

However, American Calvinists are still fuming over the wilted tulips he recently posted on Instagram, claiming the Russian leader’s predestination is certain.

12 January 2018. Trump… The Little Duffer Boy

By the way… Hillary Clinton and Oprah Winfrey are Affluent Effluent beneficiaries of Trump’s tax giveaway. You’re stupid if you think that they’d change it if they took power. You’re a sucker to believe that such fatcats would betray their class interests. After all, didn’t the Clintons give us NAFTA and “welfare reform?” Even Slobberin’ Ronnie couldn’t do that.

Repugs and Corporate Dems… NO difference under the skin. “Conservatives” and “liberals” are both two sides of the same rotten neoliberal coin.

10 January 2018. No Comment Necessary Department… Sanity Reigns in Woodstock NY

________________________

Remember Rocky and Bullwinkle? Trust me, all the phoney media frenzy and frenetic accusations about “Russian hacking and interference” makes me think of Boris and Natasha, along with Mr Big and Fearless Leader. “It is lie of Moose and skvirrel”… that’s what all the media and political hype sounds like to me. Kudos to the guy who put up the sign… whatever side his political windsock points to, they’ve got one hell of a sense of humour.

Smile awhile…

Oh, if hacking and interfering in someone else’s elections are culpable, tell me… when will all the directors of the CIA stand trial for crimes against humanity? It seems to me that such interference was one of the main things that they did…
