We tried to restrain ourselves. We kept thinking: “Don’t do this, Curmudgeon. It has nothing to do with your blog!” But we can’t help it. Even if we regret this later, it doesn’t matter. We’d do it all over again if we had the chance.
It’s not our fault, really. We blame it on our Retard-o-tron™ with its sirens and flashing lights, which alerted us to this item. But there’s more. The Retard-o-tron™ usually just does its job, but this time it was laughing! So we had no choice but to visit the website of WorldNetDaily (WND) — described in the Cast of Characters section of our Intro page. That explains the jolly buffoon logo above this post.
There we saw this unbelievable headline: Obama’s ‘gay’ pot dealer killed for flatulence?
Lordy, lordy — what a headline! Every word is an attention-grabber — well, except “for.” But the phrase “killed for flatulence” has a certain flair. Look at the whole thing. Look carefully. Savor each word. There’s Obama, and gay, and pot dealer, and killed, and then … flatulence! And they’re all in one brief headline. When, dear reader, have you ever seen anything like that? And when will you ever see its like again?
WND only gives the first three paragraphs of the news story, and then they link to the source. We didn’t bother to read any more because we’re not interested in the subject matter. It’s only the headline that we find fascinating. It’s absolutely glorious! They could have a whole semester’s course in journalism school devoted to it.
And so, because the foregoing has nothing to do with the purpose of this blog, we dedicate the comments section for your use as an Intellectual Free Fire Zone. You know the rules. Go to it.
