Idiot: "God created the brain in seven days y'all!"
Neuroscientist: "Y'all are a schmuck!"
1. The keys to modern biology were not delivered by genome sequencing, but by a series of prior conceptual advances (Darwin, Mendel, Fisher, Morgan, Crick etc).
2. Tracing wires in 3 dimensions to learn how neurons are connected is overkill: like genome sequencing by X-ray crystallography. Almost al...

My name is Joey Diamond and I'm a private investigator. Yesterday, I was sitting in my office, basicly twittling my thumbs, when two strange looking dudes walked in and introduced themselves. "I'm Wee Willie Winkie. I run through the town. Upstairs and downstairs in my nightgown. Rapping at the windows, crying through the lock. Are the children now in bed? For now it's eight o'clock."

So Si and Phil Robertson, along with this reporter, were deep in the Louisiana swamps trying out Duck Commander's new line of duck calls. It was a wet boggy mess in the bayou, and Miss Kay packed us a lunch of gator tail, crawdads and smelts. I brought the smelts, of course, and they were in the trunk of my car when I arrived at my Spanish moss destination out in the middle of nowhere.
And God said, "Noah, I want you to quit working on the ark."
"Pardon?" said a disbelieving Noah. You want me to do what?"
"The ark, Noah, you won't be needing it."
"But, God," protested Noah, "I've been working on the ark for the past four hundred years, and it's almost done. All that's left is to put in the shuffleboard court."
"Sorry, Noah, but the great flood i...

Starring Seth Rogan, James Franco
At least there were no stupid height jokes. There were stupid and even infantile jokes about almost everything else.
Asses (of the Kardashian variety). And farts. And poops and gays and inconvenient tumescences, and an almost pathological fascination with anuses. At one point Rogen is supposed to inser...

It was a long, long time undercover to get to this point, thought Bond to himself as he took down the tall brunette clone in his arms and laid her on his bed for the 334th time, but who was counting. Perhaps it had been worth it after all.
All the waiting, all the frustrations, all the malarkey writing things he did not think were funny, for an internet spoof rag that turned his stomach. Still...
Pope Stephen VI: had his predecessor Formosus,
exhumed, tried, de-fingered, and thrown to the river. and his death by strangling.

Intrepid, rat-like reporters working for international seamy tabloids just got the biggest story of the whole millennium (and that includes the Millennium Falcon!)- they copped the script from the new Star Wars movie still in production!
Here is a summary of the plot:
In a place long, long ago before even Walt Disney himself was born a galactic wide war ensued between the good people of the...
Ted Cruz the Showman was a sleazy scrappy soul,
With McCarthy looks and a button nose
And two eyes made out of coal.
Ted Cruz the Showman is a sordid tale, they say,
He was full of blow but Teabillies know
How he came to life one day.
There must have been some money
To propel him to the top.
For when they made him Senator
He became a Tea Party prop.
O, Ted Cruz the Showman was...
