By Jeremy Bloom What kind of people do we want in America? Only great American people! Fortunately, Donald Trump has a solution: “We should only admit into this country people who share our values and respect our people. I call it Extreme Vetting. I call it EXTREME. EXTREME vetting.” Yes, he really talks like that. It’s […]
By Jeremy Bloom For the season opener of Saturday Night Live, they got in a few digs at Hillary Clinton… and she got a few back. Turns out she’s actually really likable in person… And she’d love to take down Donald Trump… and the Keystone XL pipeline. 🙂 https://youtu.be/NV2nbVESJzc
Are you craving the bloody clarity and cleansing that will come with Zombie Apocalypse ? Want to hasten things along? Joss Whedon has just the ticket: Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. In a very silly (but telling) new video, the meister of the supernatural who brought us The Avengers and The Cabin in the Woods – as […]
There’s a really good reason we want to send Alan Grayson back to Congress: The man gets it, he expresses it, and he has fire in his belly. Here, on the Bill Maher show, he shuts down the idiots spouting “but what do they want?” and gives as succinct a summary of the Occupy Wall […]
As we wind down from a summer of record drought and record arctic sea-ice melt, and Mitt Romney continues to make a joke out of climate change, perhaps our only hope of actually getting people to talk about the greatest disaster facing humanity in all of recorded history could be… with a little humor.

By David Brin Are you a Republican – or do you know one – who is sincerely fretful about the GOP’s ticket for the coming quadrennial? Well, there’s good reason (on many levels). But it appears there is hope! Or at least a fun wish fantasy, written and published with stunning speed by a master science fiction […]
Don’t try Bigfoot hunting in California – it could result in your arrest and conviction, according to the California Department of Fish and Game (DFG). The DFG issued a statement in response to recent media reports about a Texas wildlife official proclaiming that bigfoot hunting is legal in the long horn state. “The Texas Parks […]
…Money is like a child—rarely unaccompanied. When it disappears, look to those who were supposed to be keeping an eye on it while you were at the grocery store. You might also look for someone who has a lot of extra children sitting around, with long, suspicious explanations for how they got there…
Because revolution should, first and foremost, be fun – and not take itself too seriously.
There are now more than 1000 spin-off actions of Occupy Wall Street – from Occupy Albuquerque to Occupy Yucca Valley. But… can you tell me how to get to Occupy Sesame Street?
It is, indeed, truly outrageous that 1% of the monsters get 99% of the cookies…
The Onion: Historians Politely Remind Nation To Check What’s Happened In Past Before Making Any Big Decisions
With the United States facing a daunting array of problems at home and abroad, leading historians courteously reminded the nation Thursday that when making tough choices, it never hurts to stop a moment, take a look at similar situations from the past, and then think about whether the decisions people made back then were good or bad.
The White House Correspondents’ Dinner is a chance for everyone in Washington to chill out, kick back and get a little silly.
While President Bush made an ass of himself in past years – seeking, but not finding, weapons of mass destruction – President Obama took the opportunity to poke fun at OTHER people who were making asses of themselves. Particularly Donald Trump.
