Pro$perity Je$u$

Why is the Super Bowl going to air two "Jesus. He gets us." commercials during the upcoming Super Bowl?

Answer: Because an unknown Xtian-based agency is giving the NFL $20 million dollars to broadcast them.

Who is this Jesus guy, anyway? I've never heard of him. Have you? I guess whoever this mystery agency is believes they can make a lot of money from him, or her. All he, or she, needs is a little exposure before a football-loving demographic. Hey! It worked for the Apple Macintosh.

Anyway, good luck to them. I'll be keeping an eye out for this Jesus thing and I hope it fares better than the Segway.


Prosperity Jesus is a real, ghastly thing.


A question on Reddit today (Presumably to Americans): "Why are you pro-gun?"

Typical answer: "I'm scared of unspecified stuff so I want to be able to remedy the situation by putting big holes in it."

Worst answer possible.

Because very VERY few of us will ever be in a situation that requires us to end the life of another person in order to save our own. Meanwhile, the second half of the Second Amendment provides cover for all the true crazies out there, with primitive social skills, as they arm themselves to the teeth.

Long story short, they're saying "We need guns to protect ourselves from people with guns."

Pure madness.

And for those who say "We need the 2A to protect this country from tyrants", well, if given the opportunity, the "visitors" to the Capitol on January 6th would have gladly used force of arms to KEEP a tyrant in office.

FYI: Among the 11,000 replies to the question (so far) I saw but one reference of "To put food on the table." There may of been other such answers but they weren't in the top tier.


There's a very popular sub-Reddit called /r/fuckcars, and it's for those who imagine a world without automobiles.

There's also a sub-Reddit called /r/fuckguns.

It's been banned for.... reasons.

What a surprise.


Exxon (alone) made $56 billion dollars in profit last year. Record profit.

I wonder if punishably high gas prices we recently endured had anything to do with the inflation we experienced in 2022. The very inflation that Republicans blamed on Biden and used to take the House.

Answer: Yes. Fuck yes!


I believe that President Joe Biden is sincere about shifting the U.S. away from fossil fuels and into renewable energy so I think it'd be a significant symbolic gesture on his part if he converted his Corvette to battery power.

It'd go faster with Tesla guts anyway.


I have a feeding station on the porch for stray neighborhood cats.

Currently Dallas is in the grip of an ice storm so birds are having trouble foraging, which means they're gobbling up my cat chow like it's an all-you-can-eat annelid buffet.

Which means, in a morbid sense, cat food is eating my cat food.

Jesus: No matter how little you may have, if you share your money with your pastor or your televangelist it will come back to you a hundredfold.
Even if your children go hungry, even if you can’t afford medicine, even if you have no job, send them your money.
Because God knows money is everything! You understand me? Money! Send your money! money! money! money! money!
