It ain’t those parts of the Bible that I can’t understand that bother me, it is the parts that I do understand. ~ Mark Twain
First of all some Muslim guy has placed a FATWAS (death sentence) on David Letterman which has given the comedian some of his best material all year.
The Jihadists (who are totally separate from the 95% of Muslims who are decent caring human beings) are mad at some joke he made that their express. So like every other time, this little, unhappy, insulted group they did what they always do and went back to the Middle Ages for a solution to their grievance - silencing the infidel by killing him and cutting out his tongue.
Time to stop taking yourselves so seriously guys. A sense of humor would help your culture immensely and maybe you wouldn't be so angry all the time.
I have had my run-ins with religious bigots too this week. Two lovely Mormon breeders have decided to stop following my blog because I made a joke about Mittens Romney and his 'magic underwear'.
I did not come up with the idea that Mormons wear underwear with 'magical' properties - it has been a part of their goofy belief system for a long time. Yes, I called your religion GOOFY because it is. Tell me the story of Joseph Smith and the mysterious gold tablets and try to keep a straight face.
Now before all the Mormon that follow me stampede to the exit let me leave you with this thought...I DON'T CARE if you go because anyone that thin-skinned is beneath my attention. Your religion may bring you great comfort and joy in your life and it's tough to not say anything when someone challenges your cherished faith. I just wish you all weren't so defensive all the time. I can only imagine what you all think of the Broadway hit - 'Book of Mormon'.
'Magical underwear' is funny. The fact that you can't see that makes you part of the joke and for that you have my pity.
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
