By David Edwards Wednesday, December 28, 2011 12:21 EDT Comedian Dennis Leary took a shot at Muslims over the Christmas holiday with a video that turns cartoon character Charlie Brown into a stereotypical bearded Islamic radical intent on killing Americans. On his Whosay website a few days before the Christian holiday, Leary posted a parody of the classic seasonal television special A Charlie Brown Christmas that depicts various members of the Peanuts gang as Muslim terrorists. “I’m so depressed,” Charlie Brown tells Lucy as the video begins. “I think I’m losing my faith in Christianity.”

Colbert guest editorial: Naming rights, state mottoes and the GOP primary + video - Editorial ColumnsAs a proud son of South Carolina I must address recent unsubstantiated rumors published in The State that I, Stephen Colbert, tried to buy the naming rights to the 2012 Republican primary. First, never trust anything in a newspaper — except this column, and possibly “Mallard Filmore.” And second, these outrageous and scurrilous rumors border on libel, even if they are, technically, true. I don’t want to talk about it.
Photo by Seth Kushner For whatever reason, I’ve been lucky enough to work and jam with lots of my heroes, in this case, the 91-year-old laugh machine AL JAFFEE. Jaffee invented the MAD “Fold-In,” which he started in 1964 and has done over 400 since. He’s also the author of eight volumes of Snappy Answers to Stupid Questions. A month prior to this performance at the 12/21/10 HEEB Storytelling Live Comics Edition at Joe’s Pub (full recap ), I interviewed him on stage at Drew University and told him about the upcoming event I was producing. Not missing a beat, Jaffe goes “I’d like to try that.”

Proof that CNN staffers don't read CNN. posted 12/06/2011 It's a story about how fat people should work out, so perhaps we can excuse the photo editor for not bothering to even read the caption before slapping a photo on it.
A television news station in Albuquerque, New Mexico ran a story this week that has many people familiar with Internet culture shaking their heads in confused dismay. Just to be clear, the character “Pedobear” is not a real cartoon, nor is it a calling card for pedophiles. It is a satire of pedophiles, not by them. Pedobear is the Internet’s way of making fun of something awful — in this case, sexual crimes against children. But to KRQE News in Albuquerque, if you see one, you should be very, very careful — and they’re not joking. In a segment aired Monday night, the station reported that two Pedobear stickers had been spotted on two vehicles in Albuquerque, and a print shop had recently begun selling them.
If you’re not familiar with the name, Old Murder House Theater is a group of Austin-based actors who turn big genre movies (mainly 80’s stuff, but there’s no hard-and-fast rule about that decade) into gloriously unhinged, wildly entertaining stage shows. In the past, the OMHT guys have performed their versions of Die Hard , Home Alone , Robocop , and Jurassic Park onstage, and the results have never been anything less than impressive. Their most recent adaptation took place this weekend, and—all hyperbole aside—it might have been the single greatest piece of live entertainment ever performed in front of a paying audience: James Cameron’s 1986 classic, Aliens …on ice . Read on for the review (and a whole bunch of footage), after the jump.
By David Edwards Friday, November 18, 2011 10:39 EDT Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann is pretty sure waterboarding isn’t torture — but she says it would be “absurd” to find out for herself. During a recent CBS/ National Journal debate , the candidate enthusiastically said she supported the interrogation technique. “It was very effective,” she claimed. “It gained information for our country.” Speaking to Fox News several days later, Bachmann defended herself by comparing waterboarding to President Harry Truman’s decision to drop an atomic bomb on Japan during World War II.
Born this way is a lie. We all know it, and now the Mexicans in Huarmey, Peru know it too. Peruvian mayor Jose Benitez is blaming the high mineral levels in the area’s drinking water for a perceived increase in the number of gay men residing in his town. Benitez made the revelation at the launch of a local water access project, where he noted high levels of strontium in the tap water. The drinking water comes from Tabalosos, a town which a Lima-based television station once claimed was inhabited by 14,000 gay men. Unfortunately strontium reduces male hormones and suddenly we’ll be as Tabalosos, as other towns, where the percentages are increasing of homosexuality,” Benitez is quoted by LGBT Asylum News as saying.

Well, we find this sort of hilarious. The first part of the film adaptation of Ayn Rand’s controversial 1957 novel Atlas Shrugged recently came out on DVD, to not much aplomb. However, the DVDs are now being recalled, and Atlas Productions LLC announced yesterday that they would replace more than 100,000 title sheets from DVD and Blu-ray discs.
