Today's Mighty Oak

If a tree falls in a forest, then springs back up as a joke, do the squirrels freak out?



Okay, big update for everyone, so here we go.

First up, this comes from Slog, and is fantastic:

Two weeks ago in his column, Dan Savage eviscerates Maggie Gallagher.  It’s wonderful to read, check it out.

Video Games will now have their own category in the Grammy’s!  Thank goodness.  Baba Yetu won last year for best instrumental (I linked to it before, and it deserves it, it is such a good song, especially the duet version).

Betty Bowers, America’s Best Christian, is back!  And now she’s addressing the masses:

Catholic Vandals in France destroyed “Piss Christ.” I’m not familiar with the work, but apparently it’s quite famous.  They assaulted a guard and attacked the photo with an ice pick, which just sounds viscous.  It always makes me sad to see art destroyed.

A few months ago, Gawker redesigned their family of sites, and they are horrible to try to navigate now.  Here’s a graph of their traffic, can you guess when the redesign went live:

It’s nice to see the Democrats actually go on the offensive for once, and the ad is a lot of fun (if not sad):

Also in politics, remember the phrase that those who protest the loudest against [insert any cause] are usually actually personally involved in [cause].  See: Larry Craig, et al.  Well, the Tea Party member of the state congress of Montana who tried to removed all equality for LGBT citizens?  Yeah, she’s a lesbian.  When will politicians learn that this pattern is clear?

Want to see something fun and cute?  Check out Cute Roulette.  It’s like Chat Roulette, but with (presumably) no penises, just lots of baby animals!

You’ll have to excuse me while I laugh.  Considering he is the man who after a rant of anti-Semitic slurs called a cop “Sugar Tits,” Mel Gibson has the gall to say he has never treated anyone badly, and certainly not for their religion or gender!

That’s it for now, have a great one!
