Well if you read the comic you'll learn that, unlike the capitalists, the socialists just want to cynically exploit labor to accumulate power.

Pastor Jack Appropriately Spreads Paranoia and Fear

Was that golden calf ashtray ever displayed on the top page, or was it pulled out of Pastor Jack's posterior? I don't recall seeing it. "God knows we don't worship ashtrays" would make an attractive banner.

The saddest thing about christwire.org is that anything short of a brilliant parody of conservative fundy religiosity is indistinguishable from conservative fundy religiosity.

The silver lining is that the tone of the site very often lures in real fundies, who comment.  The conversations and cross-talk (pun intended) between the clued-in and the clueless sometimes reach the level of art...and sometimes you can't tell the pranksters and the earnest apart.

Yes, that's what's sad.

Not from me. Yayhooray suffered the same fate and I just hosed it.

My First Dictionary has gone nearly six months without updating, and Hyperbole and a Half nearly seven.  I'm not particularly eager to remove either one, but will if they stay moribund for another month or so, unless there's a compelling reason not to.

Good, let 'em ride. Meat space gets messy and demanding sometimes. Anyone heard at all from Wilber's penix pal Pale?

Unfortunately, no.  Since the domain doesn't seem to even be registered anymore, I've removed Chimère from the sidebar.  Ditto for Epic Win FTW, which now redirects to some other Cheezburger site.

The author has officially stuck a fork in My First Dictionary.

I've replaced it with his new site, The Baby Died.  Includes news reports from the past like:

The Leeds Intelligencer of February 11, 1854 wrote:

The skeleton of a woman was found, a few days ago, inside a fence, in the vicinity of Bantry, which has caused the greatest sensation amongst its inhabitants.  Strange to say, the face remained uninjured, whilst the bones of the limbs and body were literally bare of flesh, it having been torn and devoured by dogs.

#191 2012-11-10 00:14:26

With regret, I've removed Hyperbole and a Half because it's been over a year since the last update.  The Baby Died is on watch as it's been quiet for over a month and doesn't have as much of a track record.

Nearly three months since the last update of The Baby Died, so it's now buried.

I would like to nominate Chip Zdarsky.  Some entries are just pieces of his work, but most of them are at least slightly sick-but-funny.  The thing I like most about it is that the mindset/humor are pretty much all over the map, so I can't provide a "typical" example.

I found Zdarsky through a link on Et tu, Mr. Destructo?, which I also highly recommend.
