BS removal and Two Randy Vicars: Saturday funnies

(Too bad it’s only “isolated” BS rather than the systematic type found inside the Beltway, eh?)

Enjoy & laugh.

H/T Doug Powers at MM.

Do you appreciate good satire? Check out iowahawk’s latest, The Two Randy Vicars.  A taste:

It happened that in Washingtown-on-Beltway there once ministered to the shire folk two vicars of remarkable and resolute piety. Polite history shall record their names and peerages as the Reverend John St. Edwards, Lord Plaintiff of Durham, and the Reverend Albert des Gores II, Earl Carbonet of Greenhouse. It shall likewise note well that each man, in his fashion, was a virtuoso upon his respective pulpit. What it shan’t record, however, is each man’s slavish indenture to the base desires of the flesh. As every schoolboy knows, as well he does his Latin infinitives, few are those men whose breeches are immune to the Devil’s disturbances. In the case of our two ill-fortuned subjects, Lucifer himself seemed to take particular delight in presenting ribald temptations and the debasing consequences that follow. Herein lies their tale.

Of our first subject, the Vicar John, let us note that he overcame a birth of low station through vigorous enterprise, fine grooming, and a tongue deft in weaving tragic tales of indigence; first as a simple shire barrister and then as an ordained minister at the Abbey of Washingtown. “Brethren, in my travels I have observed that we live in two shires,” he was wont to tell his rapt parishioners. “One with which you are familiar; whose roofs are handsomely thatched and in whose plump bellies rest a gluttonous supper of lamb’s-pudding. Yet, and alas, there is another shire; one in which dwell the miserable wretches laid low by our sinful and unrepentant avarice. Wretches like this unfortunate filthy lad, who has not a morsel eaten in the last fortnight.”

It ends in verse.  Enough said from this fan of Swift, Twain and Bierce (who wouldn’t want a copy of “The Devil’s Dictionary?”)

Oh, a timely gem from the latter, used frequently these days (by Michelle, the NAACP, etc etc etc):

BIGOT, n. One who is obstinately and zealously attached to an opinion that you do not entertain.

Enjoy your weekend & explore the news sidebar, twitter feed, and blogroll.  We’ve got a busy weekend ahead.  Will return Monday.

UPDATE from my google reader:

Doug Powers on an illegal alien who received the taxpayer-funded, um, penis pump.  Better to laugh than to cry, right?

  1. LOL. Whenever I see a car with an Obama sticker, I just laugh. I bet he’s now ashamed.
