FAX Humor: 1988 Presidential Race — Severely NSFW!

October 2, 2012

This is another in my FAX Humor series.

As we deal with yet another annoying presidential race, it’s probably useful to remember that it has been many years since we really had candidates or even candidate we actually liked. Most of the time, we’re voting for a lesser evil. I don’t know how we can ever break that cycle. But, here’s one very much not safe for work view of the 1988 presidential race.

Be Terrified … of a drive to the mall (MoJo Article:Fear, Inc.)

March 14, 2010

OK. I must admit that I find the thought of going to a mall a little terrifying. However, this is not what the article is really talking about. Or is it?

Comparing some of the statistics in the article to the number of deaths by terrorism since 9/11/2001 is a little silly. Let’s include 9/11. And, still, look at how many of the following beat out the 3,000 deaths from that date. Actually, more accurate mathematically would be to average some number of years including 9/11.

These Are a Few of My Favorite Onion Articles

October 11, 2007

I’ve been reading The Onion since about 1996 and love it!! Here are a few classic onion articles that never fail to amuse me no matter how many times I read them.

Dolphins Evolve Opposable Thumbs: ‘Oh Shit,’ Says Humanity

Pope Admits: ‘God Ain’t Said Shit To Me’

Bush: ‘Our Long National Nightmare of Peace and Prosperity is Finally Over’ — Too true to be good. And, quite prescient as well; check the date.

Voice Recognition Software Yelled At — This one is short and not politically or religiously charged. Just plain funny.

That’s probably enough for one day. I have to keep reminding myself to add humor to my blog. I keep getting too serious.
