If they'd been a bit more subtle, some of those right wingers might've bit on it.

The picture from Wikipedia and the fact that every day on the calendar was Aug 4th was a bit much.

This. It wasn't used as a term of disparagement until Buggs used it to goof on Elmer.

The video was apparently meant to look really goofy, in order to make the prank funnier if people actually bought into it, but according to Arpaio's office, he didn't even see it.

You can see the prank video below, and just look at the size of that friggin' baby.


In 1994 there was a debate in California about what we should do about illegal immigration. There was a vote on whether we should allow illegal immigrants access to our hospitals.

Two guys saw a great opportunity for some lulz, so they ran an ad with a prank conservative solution. They wanted it to be way over the top really goofy. So one guy pretended his name was Daniel D. Portado, the leader of Hispanics Against Liberal TakeOver (HALTO). His proposed conservative solution - if people vote Republican and the Republican wins, all Hispanics (even citizens) will agree to self deport back to their country of origin. Other promises included things such as never utter a word of Spanish except for "adios, amigo" presumably for when they self-deport.

This over the top, comedic satirical proposal is now the official platform policy of the Republican candidate for President of the United States.

Laugh it up now, friends. In 20 years we might have the (R)'s running on a platform of all POTUS candidates must have their birth documented by video or some shiat.

IIRC, nimrod literally means "hunter," it was popularized as an insult by Bugs Bunny.

Didn't this nimrod thing happen months ago, or am I just experiencing nonlinear recollection again?

Man, I haven't been entertained by a bullshiat video like that since the alien autopsy video that was shown on FOX back in the 90s.

When I last visited So Cal the news from New Mexico was a father, convinced his sons were possessed, decapitated them with a jack knife. The Jesus fish, NRA sticker and spelling reminded me of that.....

It really was an epic bit of trolling. Between the sharpie name next to the Wikipedia HS picture and the six month old baby it was only going to appeal to the dullest Birther.

A birth video? Real cute libs, but even assuming that this indeed a tape of Obama being born how can we be sure that Barrack Sr. Is his real dad? Or for that matter, that Ann is his real mom? She could easily have been a serrogate for any number of anti-american women's egg cells (....Jane Fonda?). The Obama administration should stop hiding from this issue and just release the conception video. That's all it would take to finally put this issue to bed. And yet they still refuse to do this one simple thing. Doesn't that just raise even more questions?

Such a wasted opportunity. If he wouldn't have made it so completely obviously fake, but left in a little hidden giveaway (like the sharpie that hadn't been invented yet, maybe) and played the rest straight, it might have gotten some play. As it went, it was just a total waste of effort.

Nimrod was a Biblical figure, said to be a great hunter.

Decades ago, there was a Bugs Bunny cartoon where he sarcastically called Elmer Fudd "Nimrod."

Most people didn't get the reference, and assumed Nimrod was an insult against one's intelligence that they had never heard of.

And the rest, they say, is history.

(correct thread.. go!)

Old Story is Old...

This has been around about 10 days or so. This is shot on Super-8 film. The problem with that is that Super-8 was invented in 1965. Barry was "invented" in 1961.

Someone was even going onto the Wikipedia web page changing the super-8 invention date back to 1960 to make this seem more legitimate... or something.

I have to say, I don't think even Oily Taintz would've fallen for that. Weak.
