Chad Not On Google Maps Due To ‘Lack Of Any Discernable Land Features’

Chad Not On Google Maps Due To ‘Lack Of Any Discernable Land Features’

The country of Chad is in an uproar over being missed out completely on the well known Google Maps app, saying that it is an ‘outrage’.

A Google spokesman was quick to defend his company’s inability to represent any part of the central African country, given the fact ‘there’s nothing ***king there’.

Other African Nations were quick to step up in defense of Chad including the one to the north of it, and a couple to the west along the coast. Maybe Ivory Coast or Liberia, but who can be sure. I mean, really, it’s (central?) Africa. Continue Reading

Google Adsense Bans Us, After 10-yrs Together. Evil Suspected

Google Adsense banned us a few days ago again, as they’ve done many times before in lesser fashions. This time it was because of an article published more than 8-years ago, which had literally zero traffic, according to… well, according to Google.

Listen, dastardly bastards, if you’re motto is “do no evil,” then consider, you know, not being evil fucking bastards once in a while… I’m just saying this as a publisher. Kinda tone down the evil factor. Continue Reading

Myths No Match for Wikipedia, Despite Wikipedia (comic)

Follow up on the previous one in this installment. Ever heard something that was just too juicy to not be true? You don’t have to let it lie there, facts be damned, just add it to Wikipedia and see if it sticks.

Parents Hail Terrible High School Production of Hamlet a Pretty Neat Little Show

Parents Hail Terrible High School Production of Hamlet a Pretty Neat Little Show

INDIANAPOLIS – Lacking the necessary analytical skills to objectively critique a work of theatre, parents of youngsters in a St Vincent High School production of Hamlet thought that the laborious, 3-hour show was pretty neat.

Congratulating her son Ben on what was actually a painfully lackluster and wooden performance in the title role, Maggie Polworth insisted that the 17-year-old was “really fun” and that he looked “very funny” in those navy blue tights. Continue Reading

You Fancy Yourself a Poet, Eh? (comic)

Poets are bad enough, but the self-proclaimed poets are even worse still. Sometimes you want to challenge them, see if they’ve really got what it takes.

Well this nay-sayer does just that with, well, unexpected results.

I guess the full-on war against poetry will have to wait until next year. Continue Reading

Conan at WH Correspondents’ Dinner: Da Bomb or Bomb (comic)

Conan at WH Correspondents’ Dinner: Da Bomb or Bomb (comic)

Seriously, how do they pick these people? I never even knew about them until Stephen Colbert rocked it out in 2006.

Before that, and ever since, they’ve invited nothing but third-rate hacks, save for the occasional first-rate comic delivering a performance that would be lucky to be reviewed as third-rate hackery.

I could rock it, with the help of my talented team of writers and editors. Nothing cheap like Conan let dribble from his face. Look up, Conan. You couldn’t memorize even a few lines of it? Was this not a big deal to you? Continue Reading

Records have been found that show the author being dragged before a court for hoarding grain during a time of famine. Even more ironically, it occurred at the same time as the presentation of his work ‘Coriolanus’ which opens with a scene of a mob seeking to harm the lead character for holding back foodstuffs at a time when supplies were low.

NPR Pledge Week Ads Feel Needy, Says Supporter (comic)

NPR Pledge Week Ads Feel Needy, Says Supporter (comic)

This time of year, twice a year, I get really annoyed with my local public radio station. They start begging me for money. I can’t blame them, they run commercial-free, but still, I just want to get back to my regularly scheduled news and information.

So I wondered, just how much time are they dedicating to the pledge drive, compared to what it would be if I just listened to commercial radio instead. I’ve tried the other guys, and it’s painful. A lot of that is because they mix paid placement in with the news, and I feel like they’re trying to trick me.

And idiots will be tricked. That’s what they’re banking on. Wouldn’t it be better to just get your news from an independent provider?
