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.

Before you know it you’ll be an expert in whichever field of imaginary expertise you set out to conquer.

This cartoon deals with a pattern of willful misinformation.

This is in reference to yesterday’s comic How the Scan-Tron Actually Got Its Name.

How the Scan-Tron Actually Got Its Name (comic)

We’ve all been there. You had to use a #2 pencil, as if any other option was available at the store, and fill in the bubbles completely.

But do you know the origin of the test? Do you know how it actually got its name? The answer may surprise you.

The answer may also not surprise you. It’s kind of up to you.

This is a preface to tomorrow’s comic Myths No Match for Wikipedia, Despite Wikipedia.

Bible Study: Let’s Murder Some Kids (comic)

The Bible isn’t just an all-time best-seller, it’s a work of wonder, mystery and incredible tragedy.

The Bible doesn’t just tell us how to live our lives, but also tell us how we should never, ever, ever live our lives. It has passages of unbelievable savagery, assuming you believe any of the grace of it in the first place.

Think you know the Bible? Take the GlossyNews Unbeatable Bible Quiz!

These are all legitimate passages from the Bible (with citations.) So before you pray for an easy commute or fair weather, consider asking your god why he was such an unbelievable dick to those who came before you. Read more Bible Study: Let’s Murder Some Kids (comic)

There Is(n’t) No Morality w/o the Bible (comic)

The argument is everywhere. Without the Bible, there would be no morality. Well that’s obviously untrue, since atheists are disproportionately absent in jails.

Blame that on the lack of education of many Evangelicals (especially the home-schooled crowd) if you like, but you’ve got an all-knowing, all-seeing, all-powerful being on your side. We just have science. Read more There Is(n’t) No Morality w/o the Bible (comic)

Travesty of Virginia Deeming Sodomy Legal (comic)

Virginia may ostensibly be for lovers, but recent legislation sought to restrict exactly which kinds of love that could be. Specifically, they wished to ban sodomy.

This would mean no oral varieties or hinterlands sorts, but the bill was struck down. According to this comic, not everyone is happy with the decision, though perhaps not for the reasons you’d imagine. Read more Travesty of Virginia Deeming Sodomy Legal (comic)

Why did the hipster boycott the solar eclipse? (comic)

Kind of a hard thing to boycott, an act of nature such as that. I guess you can bury your head in the sand and just pretend it didn’t happen, but why would you? A question only a hipster could answer.

I boycott tampons. I don’t use them and I refuse to buy them. They’ll get none of my money… but a solar eclipse? What’s not to like about that? What’s even to debate about that? It either happens or it doesn’t, and it kind of does, boycott or no. Read more Why did the hipster boycott the solar eclipse? (comic)

Wife Fails to Give Doves to Priest, Damned (comic)

Ever wondered what girls learn when they go off to a separate class while you’re busy learning about resisting the temptation to masturbate yourself blind? They’re learning about why their girly things happen, and you don’t want to know about it.

They possess the most amazing thing in the history of mankind, but it is disgusting in ways you could never imagine. It does things that are yicky, things that are gross, and things that would make you barf up your breakfast in about five seconds. Read more Wife Fails to Give Doves to Priest, Damned (comic)

There Are Only Two Ways Divorce Can End (comic)

If you’ve ever known someone who has been married, you know the pitfalls they face. An aging and perpetually less attractive spouse, inability to conscionably be with other sexual partners, and a general malaise that sits over your life like a 100-pound backpack.

Some look at it from a doom and gloom perspective, but others, as in this comic, see it in a much brighter light.

Remember, those who are engaged, there are only two ways out of a marriage, so make sure you do it for all the right reasons. Read more There Are Only Two Ways Divorce Can End (comic)

Man Tries to Explain-Away Awkward Black Eye (Comic)

If you’ve ever been a guy, and I suspect about half of the population has (more like 70+% of our readers) then you know how awkward and embarrassing it is to show up with a shiner on your eye.

Do you tell the truth? Do you make up a story? Or do you just read the comic at right and call it a day?

Hipster Suffers 2nd Degree Burns, Smug About It (comic)

Sometimes it’s good to be on the cutting edge, other times not so much. Hipsters – though you’ll never meet anyone willing to accept that label – love going against the grain, even if it literally pains them to do it.

Here in this comic you can see a pair of hipsters doing the wrong thing and justifying the heck out of it, because, you know, it’s uncool to be cool.

Mother’s Day Often Celebrated Just Plain Wrong (comic)

Maybe you have mommy issues, maybe you don’t. Or maybe you’re in that in-between realm where you’re not sure if you do or not. Spoiler alert, you have mommy issues.

What did YOU do for your mother on Mother’s Day, this most fabricated of all holidays. Come on, let’s get real, we all know it’s true. This is a Hallmark-Invented holiday designed to get you to spend mad stacks of money, and one that works uncommonly well. Read more Mother’s Day Often Celebrated Just Plain Wrong (comic)

Arbor Day a Real Holiday, Many Celebrate (comic)

It makes sense. All you have to do to honor Arbor Day is plant some trees. It’s the day of trees, after all. Find a good spot with some sunshine, throw down a seedling, call it a day, right?

It turns out it doesn’t always work that way. Sometimes, it turns out, you have to also obey the law and not get yourself arrested. Seems crazy, right? I mean, we’re just talking about trees, aren’t we? Read more Arbor Day a Real Holiday, Many Celebrate (comic)

Return of Christ Announced (comic)

We’ve all wondered when He’d get around to returning. At the sermon on the mount he said he’d return before the last of them in attendance had died, but what a kidder that Christ was, for the love of God.

If Christ returned, would he be given a platform from which to speak his peace, or would He immediately be re-crucified, most likely by His own adherents. How would they actually know it’s Him?

I’ve heard it said that, we “would know,” but if there’s one thing I’ve learned from social media, it’s that even with the most resounding of consensus, there are still 200-million people who disagree. Will they form their own religion?

It’s not like there will be any supernatural occurrence that will convince the world. No, that would require an actual Christ, a being that has never been properly documented of scientifically falsified.

Dumb-talking Girl Deemed Sufficiently Cute (comic)

We’ve all been to that party. There’s a girl there, maybe she’s drunk or just otherwise an idiot, and you just listen and listen as she prattles on about who-cares-what, because there’s that outside chance you can plant a kiss on her.

Well this comic is all about that.

You found an adorable little party-monkey, you don’t care that she’s spouting off random whatever about, let’s be honest, less important whatever stuffs… but you just let her talk and talk and talk. Yeah baby, that’s super interesting.

Who would you pay to have sex with? (comic)

It’s the age-old question. Who would you do? Who would you do for $100? Who would you do for a million bucks?

The film Indecent Proposal really re-opened this never-closed question by giving random girls with low self-esteem the impression that their consent was actually worth a substantial amount of money, when in fact a roofie and a parking lot dump remains priced in the low, low hundreds.
