"Evolutionists Flock To Darwin-Shaped Wall Stain."

"I brought my baby to touch the wall, so that the power of Darwin can purify her genetic makeup of undesirable inherited traits," said Darlene Freiberg, one among a growing crowd assembled here to see the mysterious stain, which appeared last Monday on one side of the Rhea County Courthouse. The building was also the location of the famed "Scopes Monkey Trial" and is widely considered one of Darwinism's holiest sites. "Forgive me, O Charles, for ever doubting your Divine Evolution. After seeing this miracle of limestone pigmentation with my own eyes, my faith in empirical reasoning will never again be tested."

Added Freiberg, "Behold the power and glory of the scientific method!"


I may not be a creationist, but, sadly, anyone can plainly see that there is a sizable percentage of the population that takes anything with the words "scientists believe" attached to it as "gospel truth".

I am a creationist, and that is way funny!

Some believe the image is actually closer to the visage of Stephen Jay Gould.

Stephen J Gould was a descendant of the mighty house of the baseball Red Sox. In the vision he appears to be warning Red Sox nation not to take the Rays manna for granted lest they die there, in the land of the Bay Tampa, within sight of deliverance to the promised land called the Post Season.

That's not Darwin, it's Freud, and he's saying, "You're all loons."

Good Lord, Scalia was right.

So, should I hide my Richard Dawkin's looking potato chip? Or make money off it? :D

Onion headlines are so much better than Onion stories. That's a general parody rule: follow-through is usually bad. The joke has already been made, leave it alone.

Headlines I've taken note of:

Toddler makes convincing case for being afraid of horse.

DNA evidence frees man from zoo.

Serial killer taunts police with weekly podcasts.

Powerful his and hers towel lobby stalls gay marriage legislation.

Another rule might be that even funny headlines can be piled on too heavily.

Well, this wasn't an Onion headline - rather, it was a selection on one of their famous infographs - but I loved the entry in their "Biotech Foods" one: " "Beefsteak Tomato" no longer just a fanciful name"

Lem: I'm doing my best to make sure that Ray manna does not stick. It needs to evaporate as soon as it hits the ground when the Sox are in town.

Maybe Ike can help wash it away before it settles on the orange juice dome.

Is this for real?

Seriously? That's NUTS! LOL.

Here in South Florida, namely in Hialeah, the Holy Virgin allegedly appeared on the window of a woman's house.

She had just hosed her windows down with water, and suddenly she saw this apparition sorta like Our Lady of Guadaloupe.

Now, Cubans have their own Virgin (Caridad) but crowds flocked to this woman's house every day. News crews parked out front and reported it for a week.

Then a miracle happened: it rained, and the vision remained!

I can't prove this, but I think the lady just sprayed hair-spray on it to make it stick.

Not sure what happened.

Maybe, as my dad said, someone just took some Windex/Windolene to the thing and poof.
