I’m sorry for all the sparks recently, but I couldn’t resist this one. Enjoy!
Or, When Muslims Attack (with free copies of the Koran!). Sorry I’ve been AWOL recently, I’m in the process of moving. I now have internet (yay!1!) but now need to unpack all the boxes of stuff. Then, I promise, real posts.
A legal team attempting to defend their client against (among other things) “obscenity” charges is trying to get Google to release certain stats about search terms in the area the trial is taking place.

We just received the happy news that Jana is free to go after her little encounter with her friends the drug-resistant bacteria and modern medicine’s to beat them back.

My husband loved American Gladiators growing up & now that it’s on again, we, of course, TiVo’d it. I will admit my doubts, but they evaporated after the intro. It’s totally Takeshi’s Castle meets Ninja Warrior with a media frenzy that only the US can provide. The jist of it is thus: 12 Gladiators (6 … [Read more…]
That’s what we do here at MoF, demote peace & understanding. I feel that, even though the War On Christmas Season really started on November 24th, since today marks the beginning of the Decembral Half of the War On Christmas Season, to bring this little tidbit back from the depths of the internet (the liberal … [Read more…]
