    (Acre, Brazil) As more and more countries reveal that President Trump pressured them to intervene in domestic US politics to his advantage, there was major anthropological news today as an isolated tribe – hitherto believed to be uncontacted – asked to speak with the wider world. “It sounded urgent.” Fearing the remote insulated community located deep in the Amazon rainforest was experiencing a catastrophic medical emergency, authorities responded only to learn the tribe just wants President Trump to stop urging them to dig up dirt on big-shot Democrats. “We don’t even know what a Biden is? Dirt? Yes.” They were...

    Drexel University must pay the federal government nearly $190,000 to cover the strip club spending habits of a former professor, according to a settlement announced Monday. Over a 10-year period, Chikaodinaka Nwankpa, the former head of Drexel University’s electrical engineering department, burned hundreds of thousands of dollars in federal funds meant for energy, science and naval research. The $190,000 settlement, which must be paid by the university, will help the school stave off a lawsuit by the federal government.

    U.S.—In a move to capitalize on the ever-growing market for more tolerant riot equipment, the Fight Fascism Foundation has announced a new line of Coexist-branded Molotov cocktails. The weapons are equipped with easy-light technology so even teenagers who have never rioted before can fire them up and show their enemies how loving they are with an explosion of fire. "Rioters' hearts are in the right place," said an FFF representative. "But they've been unable to express their great tolerance for ideas they disagree with as they burn buildings to the ground until now. With our great line of riot products,...

    In a case of wanting justice, a man wiped out his son's inheritance for his quest to win a legal battle. For a $100 speeding ticket, Richard Keedwell spent $30,000. Yes, that amount for a speeding ticket case that could've been solved by paying it. His battle for justice started at what he claims is a speed camera's disfunction, causing it to clock him traveling 35mph in a 30mph zone in Worcester. This took place three years ago and that is how long the court case went on. Instead of paying the speeding ticket, he instead challenged the fine and...

    U.S —As the nation plunges headlong into another fall season, the FDA has officially recommended pouring all pumpkin spice flavored beverages down the nearest drain immediately. Stressing that they are “all just completely abhorrent and disgusting,” a spokesman for the agency confirmed Wednesday that the only safe and honorable course of action when confronted with a pumpkin spice latte, coffee, or beer this autumn is to quickly and without hesitation open the beverage and dump every drop of it down a nearby drain or toilet. The FDA further advised caution when dumping the drinks, warning against accidentally spilling or splashing...

    Pretty rare photos from a village in Belarus during the 1970s, 1975 to be exact. The people of the village made WW2 victory parade themed platforms for the parade. Each platform is a sort of show of its own. Like this first one. –nextpage– –nextpage–
  • Joe Biden Is Done

    03/29/2019 6:28:18 PM PDT · by MNDude · 98 replies
    Joe Biden is a creepy old goat. Everyone knows this. There is much photographic evidence of him crossing the line with women. He’s also a liar and a buffoon. But the Democratic party’s public-relations arm, aka the mainstream media, has never before had any incentive to hold Biden up to scrutiny. Why bother? When he became veep, any attack on Biden risked looked like casting aspersions on the man who made him his number two, and the media could not countenance any naysaying about the judgment of the Precious. For the next few months, though, we’re in an amusing interstitial...

  • AVENATTI MOCKS TRUMP JR., SAYS HE’LL BE INDICTED AND SENT TO PRISON IN MUELLER PROBE (2018)

    03/25/2019 4:33:30 PM PDT · by MNDude · 12 replies
    Attorney Michael Avenatti fired back Tuesday at Donald Trump Jr.'s taunts on Twitter, saying that when—not if—Trump Jr. is indicted, he could spend time in federal prison. The social media spat between the two men known for aggressiveness on Twitter started on Monday evening, when Trump Jr. joked in a tweet that Avenatti could share a 2020 presidential ticket with disgraced former Democratic congressman Anthony Weiner. Under the alias "Carlos Danger," Weiner sent sexual text messages to an underage girl and was sentenced to 21 months in jail. He is now scheduled to be released three months early.

    I read that 4,153,237 people got married last year. Not to cause any trouble, but shouldn't that be an even number? You know that tingly little feeling you get when you love someone? That's your common sense leaving your body. Relationships are a lot like algebra. Have you ever looked at your X and wondered Y? America is a country which produces citizens who will cross the ocean to fight for democracy but won't cross the street to vote. I find it ironic that the colors red, white, and blue stand for freedom until they are flashing behind you. My...

    The seventies get a bad rap. When people talk about the decade, they focus on all the embarrassing stuff like Pet Rocks, Watergate, shag carpeting, and disco music. Sure, there was a lot about the 70s that was cringe-worthy. But it also had some of the most colorful, over the top slang of the 20th century. And if you don’t believe us, well baby, you can just keep on truckin. Put on your best polyester suit, crank up the Bee Gees on your 8-track player, and revisit some of the best worst slang of the Me Decade. On the other...

    Lost Words from our childhood: Mergatroyd!… Do you remember that word? Would you believe the spell-checker did not recognize the word Mergatroyd? Heavens to Mergatroyd! The other day a not so elderly (I say 75) lady said something to her son about driving a Jalopy; and he looked at her quizzically and said “What the heck is a Jalopy?” He never heard of the word jalopy!! She knew she was old…. But not that old. Well, I hope you are Hunky Dory after you read this and chuckle. About a month ago, I illuminated some old expressions that have become...
