Okay, that’s hilarious.
For those not in the know, Michael Mann, global warmmongering bullshit artist and maker-upper of the “hockey-stick” school of global warmmongering bullshit, claims he won a Nobel Prize. Turns out, he didn’t realize people can use the Intertubes to check stuff like that. He didn’t win a prize. Penn State put out some bullshit about how proud they are of the way Michael Mann is ‘associated’ or something with some people who won a Nobel.
So National Review decided to get funny.
There aren’t enough “ha”s for my “bwa” on that one.
As Ed Driscoll at the Puppy Blender’s said, “That’s gonna leave a mark”.
It almost makes me feel sorry for Penn State, they’re having a bad decade, but considering why they’re having a bad decade, fuck em. I’ll just point and laugh as they go from a great school to a punch line (in both senses of the word “Punch”, IMO).
As an aside, this deserves a link.
steal from…link to Are We Lumberjacks once in a while, he cracks me up. In this case, it’s not a link but an idea. This sounds so Lemur King that I actually had to check the link to make sure it was AWL.
He talks about what to do when a storm is coming, and I fully intend to do this if I ever live in a neighborhood again.
Wrapped the mail box in tinfoil; which will do no good, but it’s fun to do to see if your neighbors will assume it’s important and follow suit. (it takes a few storms for them to get the idea but once the first neighbor gets on board the whole thing snowballs – pretty soon the neighbor wives are hectoring the hubbies, “come on, there’s a storm coming and you haven’t even wrapped the mailbox yet.”)
Okay, that’s funny.
Eh, the blog hasn’t had any kitteh pics in a long time. A couple below the fold. I edited this a little to get rid of some mistakes.
