In Short: Republican Humor & Muslims

Rut-rho! Human Events has launched its 365 Ways to Drive a Liberal Crazy (from book by James Delingpole). Awww, based on how humor and conservatives have mixed in the past (oil and water), this is gonna be good.
#5:
Pop 'round to your nearest extremist mosque with a bottle of Pepsi. Say to the Imam:

"Look I know you guys say you love death more than you love this stuff. But have a sip—you might just change your mind."

Hahaha. Wait. WTF? What does that even mean?

But they did get one thing right: Blatant examples of ignorance and intolerance drive me crazy.

I guess I'll be getting one of these every day. I'll pass on any others of note.


UPDATE: Huge thanks to On Smash in comments for giving us a nice reference simultaneously explaining #5 and proving how fact-deficient conservatives are.

I don't get it.

Wait. Muslims would rather die than have a carbonated sugared drink?

Is that right?

MAN. I gotta get educated!

Thank you for your comment on my blog. I was just curious how you found me -- have our blogging paths crossed before?

Ricky Shambles said...

Debra- yeah, me neither.

Pearl- I think I was sick that day too.

Smash- Wow! Thanks. Another excellent example of how Republicans suck at both facts and the internet.

Betty- Hopped over from a comment at Randal's place. Thanks for stopping by :)
