Subby doesn't know anything about chess! It's Horsies that move like that, not Pointy-heads!

God bless Sweden!

co-conspirator: Subby doesn't know anything about chess! It's Horsies that move like that, not Pointy-heads!

Yeah, but the joke wouldn't work if subby had simply said "diagonally."

Are you insane? "Diagonally" has been scientifically proven to be one of the ten funniest words in the Swedish language.

I consecrated the bishop last night.
 
2009-11-09 09:45:47 AM  
I thought lesbians weren't interested in bishops.
 
2009-11-09 10:21:48 AM  
I'm sure the pope will bend over backwards to welcome her.
 
2009-11-09 11:15:22 AM  
That's thinking inside the box.
 
2009-11-09 11:15:51 AM  
Checked out TFA hoping for pictures of hot sexy lesbian bishops, was profoundly disappointed.
 
2009-11-09 11:16:23 AM  
Sweedish Lesbian Bishop?

...I'm strangely aroused.

So she's deluded and she digs women, therefore I conclude she has nothing to offer me. Next .........

So that makes her a priestess yes?


/sounds hawt
 
2009-11-09 11:21:13 AM  
Too bad for her

I admit it, I lol'd reading this thread.

I dunno, I had a chat not too long ago with an angry young man who said that he wanted everything, right now, and fark and ignore those who disagree and think differently.

He said that the tide was turning against homosexual rights, that those who opposed it were winning.

I disagreed, and then it went downhill when he described '20 years' as not long enough to change people's mind, when I mentioned generational changes.

As the younger generations come into more and more prominence, they take with them a society of openness and exposure to other groups with them. It's a clear swing that as society and time has progressed, the trend has increasingly swung towards more and more liberties being granted to everybody.

Compare the United States 50 years ago, and tell me that things havn't improved on homosexual rights. The only thing you can say is that things swing back, but the 80s were the most conservative - yet nowhere near as conservative as 30 years prior.

Things like this will occur more and more often as people realize that some barriers are just stupid. If I love God, and you love God, and we both agree on the same way to show our love for him, what matters that I'm a Venusian with Green skin who likes Horchata, and you are a Cygnian with mottled pink skin who hates Horchata? We're coming together here about our love of God, not for the color of skin or our views on Horchata.

Headline should read:

"Woman with birth defect allowed to lead others in worship of fictional characters"

How's that for trolling?

Pretty impressive. Less impressive since you called yourself out.

2/10.

It's honestly too simple and too obvious. The only people you'd catch would be those who get ticked off by saying anything honestly critical in small detail about their work (IE, some artists).

You wouldn't catch anything intellectual, and it'd be pretty obvious even you didn't mark it.

I'd mark it as a 0, but you've managed to work two separate insults into the troll seamlessly, as well as hook somebody.
 
2009-11-09 11:37:57 AM  
I prefer lesbian nuns, actually.
 
2009-11-09 11:38:42 AM  
I say we must move forward, not backward, upward not forward, and always twirling, twirling, twirling towards freedom.
 
2009-11-09 11:41:09 AM  
Above the article:

"It's not the fart that kills, it's the smäll"

Gotta love the Swedes.

Well you did cover a few bases:

1. misogyny
2. homophobia
3. obnoxious atheist
4. insulting birth defects
and pitiful attention whoring

not too shabby
 
2009-11-09 11:49:15 AM
