The Anti-Carnival!

Posted by That Other Mike on 01/06/2008

Well, thanks for waiting. The Anti-Carnival of Douchebags and Arseholes, alternatively known as the dancing festival of wankbags, is finally here. You were all waiting, right?

Anyway, it’s divided into the two categories, with linkage and short explanations for why said person is being put there. After the fold is NSFW, unless you live in an exceptionally weird office.

Bad to the bone… B-b-b-bad…

Posted by That Other Mike on 28/04/2008

Ok, couldn’t resist that one.

The enormously clever young man who writes the Bad Idea blog has written a review of Exposed, which elegantly reviews and deconstructs in one excellent blog post.

Go and read it immediately.

Posted by That Other Mike on 16/04/2008

Ouchies

Posted by That Other Mike on 15/04/2008

While I would never normally encourage anyone to engage in Google-bombing, I am a huge fan of that nice Professor Myers. He recently posted about the new website Expelled! Exposed, which offers a rather comprehensive critique of Expelled!.

The idea behind it is to move the website criticising Expelled! higher up in the Google rankings; so whenever anyone searches for the film Expelled!, he or she will be directed not to the website for Expelled!, but for the website critiquing Expelled!.

In short, what will happen will the same as when the top link going to GWB’s official bio was made to read “miserable failure”: every time someone searches for Ben Stein’s ridiculous little crapfest movie, s/he will be directed to the site Expelled! Exposed.

We might get someone to read it, anyway, and maybe even change a few minds. It’s internet activism, people. Get on board!

Will that do, Paul?

Spanking Sirius… Again

Posted by That Other Mike on 15/04/2008

The other day, as I was browsing around http://wordpress.com/tag/evolution as I often do, I was reminded of an old but funny joke, which goes something like this:

A hunter goes into the woods to hunt a bear and takes with him his trusty 22-gauge rifle.

After a little while, he spots a very large bear, takes aim, and fires. When the smoke clears, though, the bear is gone.

A moment later the bear taps this guy on the shoulder and says, “No one shoots at me and gets away with it. You have two choices: I can either rip your throat out and eat you alive, or you can drop your trousers, bend over, and I’ll do you in the ass.”

The hunter figures that anything is better than death, so he drops his trousers, bends over, and the bear delivers on his promise.

After the bear leaves, the hunter pulls up his trousers and staggers into town vowing revenge.

He buys a much larger gun and returns to the forest. He sees the same bear, takes aim, and fires. When the smoke clears, the bear once again is gone. A moment later, the bear taps him on the shoulder and says, “You know what to do.”

Afterwards, the hunter pulls up his trousers and crawls back into town. Now he’s really mad, so he buys himself a bazooka.

He returns to the forest, sees the bear, aims, and fires.

When the smoke clears this time, the bear taps him on the shoulder and says, “You’re not REALLY here for the hunting, are you?”

Ben Stein Is A Big Fat Idiot

Posted by That Other Mike on 20/11/2007

Ben SteinWell, that may not be fair. He certainly isn’t that tall, so big fat idiot might not be accurate. Hmmm. And looking at his picture, he doesn’t seem particularly fat, I guess. Which leaves us with idiot.
