Funny Stuff

Posted: June 18, 2015 by veeshir in Funniest End of Civilization Evah, Kittehs!, PEBKAC

It always makes me laugh how often when nitwits link to articles they seem to think backs up their claims the links do exactly the opposite. ‘

Case in point.

So writes Zoë Coombs Marr, a writer, comedian and “theatre maker,” and a woman of profound humility, in a piece complaining about the “devastating effects” of modest alterations in taxpayer subsidy for Australia’s commercially unviable artist

So who does she link?

At this point, rather bafflingly, Ms Marr links to an article – this one here, by Tim Blair – which is part of a series of pieces by Blair and Andrew Bolt on arts funding cronyism and the ludicrous misspending of public money. A series that actually reveals her claim of funding integrity and aesthetic high-mindedness as – how shall I put this? – less than convincing. Not your mates, indeed. (links in original V)

Heh. When a lefty links Tim Blair to back up her assertions, hilarity is sure to follow.

Love this quote

(David Thompson V) Undaunted, or perhaps oblivious, our unhappy artist continues,

Grant money is pumped back into the economy and employs numerous people.

Yeah, taking money from producers to give to ‘artists’ who need to be paid for their socially relevant ‘art’ pumps all manner of money into the local economy and employs the employees at liquor and pot distributors, which is something I suppose.

Since I’m going camping this weekend, then on to DC for the week and then back to AZ, this post will probably be here for a long time so I figure I’ll leave something visually teh funny up here.

Important, pre-camping Update!!!!!!!!

Well, not that important, but still an update!!!

Via Are We Lumberjacks

In November 2011, I wrote, “Wait, that stuff is still going on?

So what was still going on three and a half years ago? Post in bold, links show it’s all still going on.

Syria is still killing people. Actually, that one is more nuanced than the rest, it’s pretty much a dog’s breakfast of everybody killing everybody there. Syrian Military, Isis, Hezbollah,  other

The Gaza death cult is still shooting rockets at Israel. Yup.

Fukushima is still going on. Yup.

Mexican cartels are still killing Intertubers. Yup, though most of those alive are “self-censoring”

Somali pirates are still pirating. The funny part being that after ships avoided the area, it seemed as if piracy went down, when ships went back, it went up. Surprising only fools and the willfully ignorant.

Armenia is still occupying and acting all aggressive on Kazakh Azerbaijani lands, totally without Russia’s help and encouragement (wink wink, nudge, nudge). This is a case of people who’ve hated each other for a long time hatin’ on each other and Russia is still involved.

Terrorists are still operating in the Sinai. Now it’s ISIS of course. Giving Hamas Jihad Envy.

North Korea is still working on nukes and threatening with said nukes. Yup.

Iran is still threatening all and sundry with nukes. Now with more aid from Obama! This poll makes me proud to be an American. Subhed

A new Zogby poll suggests that more and more Americans trust Israel more than Obama to get rid of the Iranian nuclear threat.

Quote

A large plurality of Americans prefer that the Obama administration take a more dovish approach to end the Iranian nuclear threat but at the same time back Israel’s bombing the Islamic Republic

 

EUnuchstan is still boned and still won’t even contemplate actually fixing anything. They keep talking “austerity”, which used to mean, “Living within your means” and now means, “Increasing taxes to pay for what you want.” Good luck with that.

On the lighter side, we might be looking at revolution in China. Yup.

 

Something not new, but the vid of the day

Crazy Russian guy lights himself on fire and jumps from 9 story building.

It lives up to its billing.

This liveleak vid is from the guy’s head-cam.  I cannot figure out how to embed it. I’m computerly challenged.

 

Added 30 seconds later because I forgot it:

Same H/T, my generally sour attitude today.

The second time is supposed to farce, but this is actually about the eleventyith time and it’s a comic tragedy that should be getting funnier, except it’s not.  Recall that Obama and co. declared “Peace for our time!!!!” and the Iranians said, “We never agreed to that.” and yet, people are still acting as if the Iranian nuke “deal” is an actual deal.

Inspection and access to non-nuclear and military sites will not be accepted by Iran.

The Iranians have been ridiculing the “negotiations” since they started in the early aughts and have only become more brazen as our fine political, intellectual, moral and social betters keep pretending the Iranians are honest parties.

In Reclaiming Our Lost Colony news, Andalusia!

At a two-day terrorism conference held in Madrid on April 23 and 24, Fernández Díaz said that at least 115 Spanish jihadists — including at least 15 women — are now known to have joined the Islamic State. He added that 14 jihadists had returned to Spain; nine of those are in prison and five remain free.

 

I bet a dollar there have been a few, unpublicized, terrorism conferences in Spain, except on the “supply” side of terrorism.

Who are we to deny them the 9th holiest site in Islam?

In a surprising twist, M’Shell Obama prevents terrorism!!!!!!!

Recall back in 2010, M’Shell took money from food stamps to pay for

Democrats who reluctantly slashed a food-stamp program to fund a state-aid bill may have to do so again to pay for a top priority of first lady Michelle Obama.

… is paid for by trimming the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, commonly known as the food-stamp program.

 

In today’s exciting development some New Black Panther terrorists had a problem

This week the Brandon Orlando Baldwin and Olajuwon Davis admitted in court that they were planning to blow up a police station and murder St. Louis County Prosecutor BOb McCulloch… But they didn’t have enough money on their EBT card!

 

Okay, that’s pretty funny. Until you think about how we’re subsidizing terrorists with welfare.

 

The New Puritans, afraid someone, somewhere is having unapproved fun, have started the Salem witch trials a little west of Salem, only now they’re burning men.

In this exciting episode, some guy got drunk and then his girlfriend’s roommate jumped him and he was accused of “rape” and lost his witch trial. I can only assume his wang weighed less than a duck. But he’s fighting back

What differentiates the Amherst suit from others, though, is that it portrays Doe (supposed rapist V) as unable to give consent, and Jones (supposed rapee V) as the initiator and the sober party.

 

I wish him luck, but since he’s part of the patriarchy (his wang gives that away), and it’s in a double-bastion of New Puritanism (Massachusetts and a college!!), I figure he’s boned.

 

This is sorta funny but not really tragicomedy, but I’m linking it for one reason.  A bunch of lesbians got mad at each other and brawled in the streets.

When the groups arrived, members of one clique pulled knives. A girl from the other group had a bottle of drain cleaner.

One woman threw the sulfuric-acid substance all over the place — burning herself and five others

Why am I linking it? No pictures so I’m betting they’re not hot.

 

Nuff said.

You wuz warned.

This is ts the Washington Free Beacon Section

Whose side is Obama on? That’s an easy one, who hates America the most in that region.

President Obama and his administration continue to support the global Islamist militant group known the Muslim Brotherhood.

If only we could get Israel to start some anti-American rhetoric, maybe behead a few journalists then Obama might be on their side.

 

I know which side I’m on in China V Freedom, I wish I didn’t know which side Obama is on.

Original participants in China’s pro-democracy movement in 1989 are back in prison on the 26th anniversary of the government’s brutal suppression of those protests,

Anniversaries always get me in trouble too, but usually I just get the silent treatment and don’t get laid because I forget them, I’ve almost never been killed over one and I’ve only been imprisoned once (long story)

 

I’m not sure whose side I’m on in this one.

Al Qaeda and other Islamist terrorists pose a “high” threat of attacking the upcoming G-7 summit meeting in Germany,

That’s a poser.

 

Once again, I know whose side I’m on, it’s just hard to figure out how to do anything for the poor kid whose stuck in this utterly ludicrous yet utterly horrible (funny and endy!) situation.

‘Complicated': The transsexual partner of a former lesbian lover of a nine-year-old’s natural mother has been refused access to see the girl after a judge found that her life was complicated enough
The couple – known as Rachel and Helen – split up when she was three. Rachel, who was Alice’s natural mother, was sectioned with schizophrenia and Helen entered a relationship with Matthew, the man who has brought the case.

When he met Helen he was a woman having treatment to live as a man.

 

Jebus. That poor little girl has absolutely no chance at any sort of normal life.

 

I’m on (Used to be) Great Britain’s side, but then, I always root for the underdog. The 600 year history of the Royal Mail is coming to an end.

The UK government is to sell its remaining 30 percent stake in Royal Mail

Sure it’ll still be there, but it will not be owned by the government. How messed up is it that a socialist country is selling its stuff to private enterprise?

So socialism leads to libertarianism? That’s pretty darn funny.

This bit makes me laugh a little more.

The UK offloaded a 60 percent stake in Royal Mail in 2013, but attracted criticism for selling it too cheaply when shares soared following the sale.

Let me get this straight, a company run by a gov’t agency who cares not for profitability(it’s not their money) is sold to a private enterprise whose goal is to make money and the stock prices go up? The deuce you say!

 

As always, I’m on the side of science against Science!

In a major blow to environmental activists, the Obama administration said Thursday that the controversial drilling technique known as fracking has not caused any widespread impacts on drinking water,

Not that this will matter, notice they link the Wash Times. I’m gonna go out on a limb and bet that The NYTimesWashPostCNNABCCBSNBCetc. do not give this much coverage. They are in the affirmation business, not the information business after all.

 

As always, I’m on the side of freedom against the current, Chicago-machine-politics ruling our nation.

In March of this year, the Obama administration removed the White House from FOIA requests. Also in March, a note on a FOIA request that wasn’t blacked out said, “We (agency workers) live in constant fear of upsetting the WH [White House].”

The agencies have a history of perverting the process in favor of leftists. In 2013, the federal government granted waivers on FOIA requests for greenies but not conservatives. Green groups received information for free 92% of the time while equivalent Conservative groups are not granted fee waivers 93% of the time.

Sonomabatch.

That also illustrates why I’m on Sharyl Attkisson’s side, she’s just about the only journalist in America.

 

The real poser of the day:

Nannarch nannarchor  Grannarch?Trailer Park Grandma Hillary

 

Paco helped me come up with that one.

I has them.

CNN/ORC poll (I didn’t realize Sauron was polling for Hillary) PDF Warning.

Do you approve or disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling:

Government surveillance of U.S. citizens

Approve                       Disapprove            No opinion
May 29-31, 2015* 29%                                 67%                            4%
June 11-13, 2013   35%                                61%                              4%

So most people are against the gov’t spying on us.

But then they get to this question

As you may know, the law allowing the National Security Administration (NSA) to collect and
analyze information on the phone calls of most Americans in order to locate suspected terrorists (emphasis me V) is set to expire on Monday, June 1. Do you think Congress should or should not renew that law and allow the collection of telephone data to continue?
May 29-31 2015
Should renew 61%
Should not renew 36%
No opinion 3%

 

It’s all in the wording.

I’d ask, “Do you want the gov’t to snoop on your phone calls even though they’ve admitted it has not caught any terrorists” and I’d bet I get entirely different answers. Maybe mention how Nidal Hassan was all over the place calling for Death To America!!! (sorta like Obama but less obvious about it) and yet, they didn’t catch him.

Push polls: The cornerstone subversion of democracy.

 

Speaking of misunderstanding democracy, how funny is it that in the birthplace of democracy they have no idea as to what it means?

The Greeks are upset that the people giving them a few billion euros expect Greece to act responsibly, with the Prime Minister saying this.

In other words, this means the complete abolition of democracy in Europe, the end of every pretext of democracy,

 

I’m with him on that, but he seems to be blaming the EUnuchs instead of the Greeks.

Listen, if you’re living on their money you’ll live by their rules.

You don’t get to decide how to spend other people’s money in democracy. That’s an entirely different sort of governing philosophy.

 

My question here is:

Did Paco misspell “En Loco Parentis”?

We’ve all seen the story about the school that had a class trip to a porn store, but I hadn’t seen the name of the school anywhere else

The Gaia Democratic School

Is it a hate crime to send your kids there?

 

My question, is this the first time someone Wins and Loses the Comment of the Day?

First, the losing comment from FrnakJ

At this point it would be easier if you announce if you’re not running for president. BTW, I have no announcement to make.

Sonomabatch, we’ve been waiting 10 years for him to run and now he’s blowing us off? That pisses me off.

Now the winner. Also from FrnakJ in the same post

Reminder: You don’t get to choose whether criminals are armed. Only whether law abiding people are.

Bingo, bango, bongo.

 

It doesn’t get much funnier or endier than this.                                                                                                       Headline

Obama will even defend anti-Semitism to spin his Iran deal

 

That’s from Lebanon, the country that embraced Hezbollah because they hate Jews.

This is a two-fer, an illustration as to why Green Science is neither and global warmmongers lie.

Headline

SAMSOE: A ROLE MODEL IN SELF-SUFFICIENCY

Yeah, about that, first, they use windmills, that they don’t make. They also brag about how much money they make from selling electricity to the mainland, but they fail to mention this.

As a result of these decisions, three things happened: Vestas, Bonus and Danish wind turbine–makers came to lead their industry globally; a high fossil-fuel tax created generous government subsidies for renewable development; and Samso became sustainable—producing more energy than it consumed for the first time in 2005 and every year since. “[The] fossil-fuel consumer is actually paying for the green development,” Hermansen notes….

…thanks to a bonus payment for renewable energy supplies and to 10-year contracts utilities are required by law to sign with wind power producers.

It’s self-sufficient if they get huge subsidies. Antidictionaryestablishmentarianism in other words. Like this part, it’s the bit where greenies are just like middle ages monks scourging themselves in the public square

If he is consuming more than he is producing, he runs around unplugging things while his poor wife is sitting in the dark,”

Blow out a candle and praise the dark!

 

I do wish environmentalists weren’t just commie tools or maybe they’d do something about this

Chinampas are floating farms started by the Mexica (Aztecs) 600 years or more ago and now they’re disappearing because of various things but mostly pollution.

Low-income housing developments blot lands that used to be chinampas, or floating gardens. Cars and trucks rumble down pollution-choked streets that used to be canals.

Many of the development projects were built as a bid to win votes when Xochimilco, like  most of Mexico, was controlled by the notoriously corrupt Institutional Revolutionary Party, or PRI.

I look forward to stories about “bad luck” in Mexico City.

Semi-related, it just makes me laugh. And cringe of course, but you takes teh funny where you can get it.

science!!!!!!

 

In Gov’t Healthcare News, the Brits NHS is going to improve the lives of people!!!! How?

Under the proposed Sustainable Development Goals, UN member states will be given targets to cut the number of deaths from diseases like cancer, stroke, diabetes and dementia by one third by 2030.
However because many are age-related illnesses people who succumb to those diseases from the age of 70 are not deemed to have died prematurely and so are not included in the target.

They starve them to death and call it “natural causes” and now this. It sucks to be old in (used to be) Great Britain. So we have that to look forward to.

 

So as American cities are being sacked by Democratic voters, the “Justice” Dept knows who to go after.

The Department of Justice is concentrating on “far-right” groups in a new study of social media usage aimed at combatting violent extremism.

They say Islamic terrorism too, but why no targeting of the domestic groups actually blowing up our cities? I know, it’s a Chicag0-machine-“Justice” Dept so why would they go after their foot-soldiers, but still, they can at least lie to me the way they’re lying and saying that since Congress didn’t authorize it they’re stopping their collection of data .

Here we have the part where Veeshir disagrees with Clarence Thomas.

No monuments are ever built to cynics.

Yeah, about that……

Last, and least important, the most important bit of the day.

Lyndsey Graham is really running, which leaves me in a conundrum.

Which pic is a better illustration? graham  or little lord graham
