Do you, my cherished five readers, want to know the Snarkatronic opinion of Republican VP candidate Sarah Palin?

Does that help?

Call this pollution? You kids today ...

After investigating some historical ice cores, the awkward truth comes out. Pollution was worse 100 years ago, primarily due to coal burning. And this was *real* pollution, you punks. Toxic heavy metals like cadmium and lead, not this wimpy carbon dioxide. Pah! Plants make carbon dioxide!

And we used to trudge to school through that toxic snow. Uphill, both ways!

As if we didn't have enough to worry about

The Earth is sloshing inside.[via Instapundit] So what, you say? That's what's generating our highly useful protective magnetic field, that's what. And when the poles flip, there's about 800 years of *mess* while they get it all sorted out. Meanwhile, our protective magnetosphere isn't. All those delicate and expensive satellites up there can't handle raw solar flares. Plus, you'll want to stock up on SPF 500 sunscreen.

Of course, the Sun appears to be having digestive issues too at the moment. Ice age, anyone?

"I'm an American now! I'm an American now!"

The words of Iraqi five-year-old Hamoody, on hearing his asylum request had been granted. He's blind because he was shot in the face by insurgents. You know, those "minute men" that are the true Iraqi patriots according to Michael Moore? Deliberately shooting children.

Is it too much to ask that Some People (mumblemumbleliketheDemocraticCandidatemumblemumble) show even a tenth as much joy at being American? If a five-year-old child can figure it out, why can't you?

Welcome to the family, Hamoody. We're glad you're here.

Giant Space Brain!

NASA claims it is just a nebula, no need to panic, blah blah blah. Judge for yourself ...

-Lackadaisy has *two* new pages! Finally.
-Lawn Darts gets all political, in a savage kind of way
-Schlock Mercenary survives being interviewed! It's sad that hundreds of years in the future reporters haven't evolved at all
Girl Genius and the killer lamp posts of Doom!
-And the rest; Two Lumps, xkcd (no that is not a typo), and Dresden Codak is still on hiatus.

A Fine Assortment of Fruits and Nuts

or, my Washington State voter's pamphlet arrived in the mail today. Reading some of the candidate statements provokes a variety of reactions; a desire to find the nearest active railroad track to lie down on, a scribbled memo to add more contraceptives and/or Prozac to the water supply, and a nagging worry that the evolutionary process has slipped gears into reverse. Even the nutter on the bus today made more sense in his ravings than some of these loons.

Don't take my word for it, see for yourself. Especially the candidates for Governor. (They aren't all scary crazy but far too many of them shouldn't be allowed to handle sharp objects unsupervised.)

Obviously a 55 gal. drum of tequila isn't going to do it. I need a tanker truck.
