A Dose of Humor

Looks like David Neiwert over at Orcinus is moving away from journalism and into science fiction. Actually, it looks like he's having a bit of disturbing fun running with Rush Limbaugh's recent statement:

"Wouldn't it be great if anybody who speaks out against this country, to kick them out of the country? Anybody that threatens this country, kick 'em out.
We'd get rid of Michael Moore, we'd get rid of half the Democratic Party if we would just import that law. That would be fabulous. The Supreme Court ought to look into this. Absolutely brilliant idea out there."

and extrapolating out a declaration of liberal exclusion/unpatriation by the "Master of All Megadittoes".

For a more direct sort of humor that has only a slight moralizing about human nature within, check out Jack Handey's recent piece in the New Yorker, "What I'd Say to the Martians". When I got to the line, "You say your civilization is more advanced than ours. But who is really the more “civilized” one? You, standing there watching this cage? Or me, with my pants down, trying to urinate on you?", I felt as though it was a piece that might speak to my friend Klund.
