I've never known anyone to look for moral direction. I have known plenty who feel it their obligation to provide it.

Just for that, I'm going to grill a burger for breakfast - just bought ground round last night ;-)

The thing is.. Jesus is fake.  Make believe.  I mean, he was probably black if he even did exist according to some historians.  Those other guys are actual leaders of the people, not some zombie from a fairy tale.

Well, that's why anybody who cares what some fool puts in his burger ad is a dumbass.

This. And the fact that he feels compelled to means his burgers must suck. Let's see him do that to Muhammad and see what happens. I think he knows better.


Muslims take their prophet seriously, and are willing to die for their beliefs.

Christians won't even follow the teachings of their savior, they just biatch online and pretend to be victims.

Resident Muslim: Sure, guys. Know any good homosexual jokes? How about some funny black ones? Hispanic?
What about September 11 ones? Holocaust (sp?)?

All I'm saying, there's tasteful and there's not. Even with dark humor.


How do you tell if your roommate in college is queer?
His dick tastes like shiat.
How do you make a gay fark a woman?

[I can't find any funny racist jokes right now, but that could be because racists aren't funny.]

September 11 jokes are just plane wrong.
Btw, did you know the very first 9/11 joke was actually told by one of the hijackers on the plane? Although it doesn't really count because I don't think it landed.

A friend of mine from school got caught masturbating in the showers. It completely ruined our class trip to Auschwitz.
But I don't really want to joke about the Holocaust because my grandfather died in a concentration camp. Fell off a guard tower.

etc.


I was thinking child rape victims might be off limits, but Jimmy Carr tackled that one as well. ("I discovered the hard way that the worst way to start a benefit gig for abused children, is with an apology.")

It's much harder to make a nice looking pond that people can pin on their walls or cars or wear around their necks though.

I have a vague memory of reading a book that took place in a world where Christ was hanged, not crucified, so the holy symbol of the church was a noose, not a cross.

Hate to burst your bubble, but they have found enough evidence from other sources (documents from the Roman Empire primarily) that back up the claim that Jesus was a real person.  As for the rest of the biblical stories on Jesus, that depends on your faith.

In reality, I don't think Jesus would care if his likeness was used to sell burgers while blazing up.  Someone forgot to give the Fundies their meds again, apparently.  I might be conservative, but I don't defend them when they sound like a bunch of Re-Rees that were dropped on their head too many times when they were infants, which is about 99% of the time.  That 1% where they actually make a point is when I'll back them up.  This isn't one of those times.

well...this will be my lame contribution to the 4/20 thread.
The opening to my soon-to-be- released novel: Mulching Mars

https://www.facebook.com/spaceportterra
"To all shall see these presents...Greetings.
(Wait for applause)
To terraform Mars.
    That was the simple goal from the beginning. The reasons, however, to terraform Mars were much more complicated.
    Way back in the year 2012, the world was in chaos. Perpetually high unemployment, horrible economies, civil liberties being eroded away by spy organizations, and protests and riots all across the planet. The people on Earth were losing hope. Something had to be done. Something had to change.
Then one day that year, a man had a dream. A vision of the future.
    A future in which like mined individuals would come together and would not be judged by the color of their skin, their gender, whom they chose to love, or how much money they or their family had or did not have. A group of people who would cast off mysticism, ignorance, hatred, and personal greed and embrace logic, knowledge, love, and could work together towards the common goal. But above all else, they would share one common trait. The trait of the child-like wonderment of exploration. A sense of adventure and the spirit of curiosity that has guided mankind from the times when they first set sail on unknown oceans to the time they first set foot on the moon. And they would do it for peace. They would do it for all mankind.
(Wait for applause)
    A future in which the exploration of the heavens of space was not limited to just corporations employing a vast number of robots, to only those who had aerospace engineering PhD's., or those lucky enough to have financial clout or lucky enough to win a contest to space. In his vision, he envisioned an organization in which the common person of average intelligence or greater would gladly bid farewell to his previous uninspiring life, be trained by the organization in a needed skill and work towards the common goal with all of his heart in exchange for a guaranteed right of the necessities of life and the opportunity to boldly go where no person had gone before.
(Wait for applause)
    He knew back then that there would be many obstacles that they would face. And there were. From the initial doubters and naysayers, to the political arena and the powers that be, to the great meteor strike and all the chaos that ensued, the people of the organization rose to meet the challenges.
He knew from the beginning that such an organization could not take place in any existing country. In order for this grandest experiment to be successful, they had to have complete autonomy, so he created a new country. Our country. 
Spaceport Terra
(Wait for applause)
        
    And here we are in the year 2059. Just look at us.  From the huge nitrogen gathering stations on Titan. To the water extraction plants on Europa and Callisto. Our way stations on Ceres and Vesta. To the agricultural colonies floating in Venus's atmosphere. All the supply ships in orbit around the sun. To our great flagship space station, the Pantheist and all of its manufacturing plants at L5. To our moon station and geostationary and low Earth orbit stations and of course to our little island in the sea back on Earth.
    We stand here together, in orbit of Mars, on this momentous day to complete that goal that was set so long ago by that great man. Although the Supreme Commander gave his life in a vain attempt to stop the meteor his spirit, his memory, and his vision lives on. On a personal note, although he has been called many a names: the Supreme Commander, one the greatest men to ever live, even a prophet, I just call him the grandfather I never got to know.
(Wait for applause)
    So it it is with great honor that I will relay the message from my mother, the Pro Tempore of Spaceport Terra, that she received from the Supreme Commander prior to his death that he thought should mark this glorious occasion.
    'Let's begin the terraforming of Mars by, from orbit, thickening the atmosphere by dropping a whole bunch of bales of marijuana in it. The bombing begins in 5 minutes.'
    May knowledge be with you"
(Wait for applause)

In retrospect I should have hyperlinked my last post. Imagine if it was death by prostate exam.(whatever that entails) Not pretty for a bumper sticker either. Still, the connection of a prophet of the trilogy and ganja in the same thread only comes along so often, so heres the link for anyone interested. Good Easter / 420 reading.

That came along sometime after I wasn't doing it anymore. Have no idea what significance that number has with it. Don't really care either now. Burgers, that's a different story, around here 5 Guys is probably the best.

Some people have the attitude, "making money excuses you to do whatever you want." I wonder if they think, the more money you make, the more ethics you're allowed to ignore? The richer you are, the more people you're allowed to screw.
