“68 years after the crash, that identity is in transition, as alien scholars, true believers, devout Christians, capitalist politicians, and exasperated agnostics all vie for a place in their hometown’s history. Welcome to Roswell, New Mexico.”

Three words: Water strider robot. You’re welcome.

Just being crazy isn’t enough any more.

A little public relations advice for Tom Brady.

Everyone loves Joe Biden, but he ain’t running for President.

“The same, by the way, is true for sexual orientation. I spoke about this in Africa, and everybody is like, oh, oh, we don’t want to hear that. But the truth of the matter is, is that if you’re treating people differently just because of who they love and who they are, then there’s a connection between that mindset and the mindset that led to racism, and the mindset that leads to ethnic conflict. It means that you’re not able to see somebody else as a human being.”

Kermit and Miss Piggy have broken up, and life has no meaning.

“Given the choice between following Jesus and working ourselves into a self-indulgent froth of indignation over imaginary witches or other Satanic baby-killers, we always seem to choose the latter.”

We love Real Genius, yes we do.

“In a controlled burn, you do a little bit of truth mixed in with a lot of lies“. And no, that’s not a quote from House of Cards. Meanwhile, Wonkette is weeping tears of joy.
