The Montgomery-Gentry Paradox
When you are proud of never locking your front door because there are never any intruders in your town, but still find it necessary to keep a loaded gun in your home for “protection” against all the intruders in your town.
bluefootedbooby: 21stgoddamncentury replied to your post: On Moffat, fandom, and feminism I don’t like Moffat’s version of Doctor Who because he constantly retcons the universe, so you can’t rely on anything that happens and nothing of consequence is ever at stake. That’s actually kind of why I didn’t like Davies’ version of Doctor Who. I never felt like anything was at stake because the...

Speaking of racists,
I am not looking forward to hearing my batshit tea party uncles lament over “the whites” no longer being the majority of the US population at some vague point in the future. Can I call in sick to Christmas? Or just put in my two weeks? “I’m sorry, racist tea party uncles, thank you for the opportunity, but I’ve accepted a position with another family.”
An Untouchable Christmas
Or “Eliot Ness Saves Christmas” Leaders of the elf union have become lazy and selfish, so they start framing children to get them on the naughty list, and trade the toys to Al Capone for booze. Santa is none the wiser, but Mrs. Claus’ suspicions are raised when she checks the list twice, so she calls in the Chicago Bureau of Prohibition to investigate. Ness uncovers the scam and...

I don’t understand why you start out by stating the assumption that we know the names of the other, non-famous reindeer, but then ask us whether or not we recall the most famous reindeer of all.

You should know who your favorite country singer’s favorite country singer is. You’d think it’d be Johnny or Willie or Hank, but it’s not. Your favorite country singer’s favorite country singer is always Keith Whitley. Unless your favorite country singer is Keith Whitley; then it’s Lorrie Morgan.

shrinkinglibrarian: ““What you wish you had learned in library school” can’t be taught, because it is totally dependent on three factors: what you learned before library school, what you learned in library school, and what job you managed to get after library school. That sounds obvious, and it is. What isn’t obvious based on the popularity of this discussion is how radically different those...

One woman from Effin in County Limerick in the Irish Republic has so far been unable to add the village name to the ‘home place’ section of her Facebook profile. Ann Marie Kennedy,...
