Funniest thing you read today

Submitted by snipfool on June 5, 2012

The funniest thing I read today was Laura Barnett's piece hailing royal succession gender equality as a victory for feminism.

What was the funniest thing you read today?

Capitalist Killer Heroine Of The Revolution 1st Class Assault Section Leader Comrade Nichole of The Black Banner Guards Armoured Brigade doesn't enjoy having her picture taken even for propaganda purposes. "I am a stone-cold hard-hearted killer of men and I will smile once we reach Final Victory" She told Our Combat Photographer.

Perhaps they've just decided that the word 'comrade' needs further adjectives attached to it, and are putting forwards putative options for this. This is how most Maoist variants came about, for instance.

The females are just modelling adjectives. It's like Keeping up with the Kardashians, except with adjectives and long vowels in lieu of Kardashians. Perhaps their problems would be solved with a systematic purging of adjectives.

They seem to use 'anarcho' rather than 'anarcha,' which is suspect. Perhaps this is why they feel cold-hearted.

Are they Libcom users, though?

They are on Twitter, I guess.

I mean, the law against poisoning is generally an individual law rather than a mode of 'regulation' of such things, so it wouldn't have much to do with most of them. The punch-line is decent, though, could do with further development in such a format.

Honestly, something more simple like, 'Ayn Rand, Rand Paul and Paul Ryan have unprotected sex. They contract Gonorrhea,' could work.

In UK it is the monarch who decides when something becomes a city :S
http://www.ukcities.co.uk/definitions/

The Cambridge English Dictionary defines 'city' as 'a large town' or 'any town in the UK which has a cathedral'. This is the common meaning of the word throughout the world, and in most countries the size of a town is the deciding factor over whether it has city status. Large towns are automatically considered cities. This is perfectly logical and sensible, however this is not the case in the UK.

Despite having a parliamentary democracy, many decisions within the UK are not open to the public, but instead controlled by the monarchy or parts of the British government which answer to the monarchy, irrespective of which political party is in office. The decision to grant a town city status is one such decision. Hence in the UK city status is not granted automatically just because a town becomes very large, or because of a cathedral. A town must be granted city status by the British monarch.

Queering Pokemon Liberation, Animating Restorative Justice

Pokemon rights are often seen as subordinate to or even the opposite of human rights. But what if we flipped the picture, seeing the world from the point of view of queer Pikachu and LGBTQ people alike oppressed by hierarchical binaries? Our all-queer panel of Pokemon liberation activists will cover not only intersections among Pokemon-ism and homo/transphobia but also the exciting possibilities opened up by a fully eco-Pokemon activist praxis. Presentations: "Gotta Catch Em All? The Dynamics of Pokemon Oppression” by Christopher-Sebastian McJetters -- An examination of how digital violence against Pokemon perpetuates anti-gay bullying, erasing non-digital identities also erases queer identities, and hyper-masculinity in American gay culture cultivates Pokemon-ism. "Decolonizing the Pokeball” by Brandie Skorker -- A challenge to socially constructed colonial digital hunts for Pokemon that are rooted in oppressive histories while leading to environmental catastrophes. "Pokemon Rights as Animal Rights” by Pattrice Jones -- A “queering” of the notion of Pokemon rights to encompass human rights and thereby enliven digital struggles for social and environmental justice through the restoration of social and material ecologies.

London estate-agents fired after brawl with Class War protestors (outside Boris Johnson's house).

http://www.dazeddigital.com/artsandculture/article/32435/1/foxtons-estate-agents-fired-after-fight-with-activists

It's not really funny, Bone's partner was knocked to the ground, unconscious and suffered a head injury. Having seen the pictures and the blood, I don't find it at all amusing.

I know - I'm not laughing at the fight itself, simply the fact that the estate agent was fired.

Tony Robinson on Time Team said something about Marx and Engels coming up with a radical new theory called communism. I was all like, I didn't know Marx invented communism. I'm still chuckling, also a bit unsure who is right, me or Tony Robinson.

Bevan: [quote]"No amount of cajolery could eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred of the Tory party. So far as I am concerned they are lower than vermin," he went on. "They condemned millions of people to semi-starvation. I warn you young men and women, do not listen to what they are saying, do not listen to the seductions of Lord Woolton. They have not changed, or if they have they are slightly worse."[quote]

Corbyn:[quote] " And at a very human level, at a very socially compassionate level we got on very well on that issue at that time.

He also found common ground with Mr Cameron on their shared love of cycling.

He added: "As a fellow cyclist I wish him well on his bike. I'm not going to say "on yer bike", I'm going to say good luck... on your bike. " [quote]

I remember a few years ago they organised events to support bitcoin, and one Ancap who wandered onto the boards said something about a community in Cambodia.

Can't think of anything else really.

Oh and yesterday I came across this

Grand Old Academy is a Japanese-style visual novel/dating sim inspired by contemporary American politics. Its tone is satirical, but lighthearted: it is a story about romance, friendship, and competition, not actual political issues. The only major difference from other visual novels is that all of the actors in this story happen to be politicians. Think “Hatoful Boyfriend,” but instead of pigeons, it’s Republicans.

A successful investment banker parked his brand new Porsche in front of the office, ready to show it off to his colleagues. As he got out, a bus came along and completely tore off the driver's side. The banker immediately whipped out his phone and dialed 911. It wasn't more than 5 minutes before a policeman pulled up.

Before the policeman had a chance to ask any questions, the banker started screaming how his car, which he just picked up that day, was completely ruined and would never be the same again.

After the banker finally finished his rant, the policeman shook his head in disbelief.
"I can't believe how materialistic you finance guys are," he said "You're so focused on your possessions, you don't care about anything else!"

"How can you say that?" asked the banker, angrily.

The policeman replied, "Didn't you realize that your left arm is missing from your elbow down? It's been completely torn off from when the truck hit you!"

The banker looked down in absolute horror.

"Fucking Hell!" he screamed... "Where's my Rolex!?"

I've had that video dropped on my social media. Absolutely the funniest thing I saw today. What larks, couldn't stop laughing, nothing quite as funny and entertaining as someone being shot to death.

Really, what the fuck? I really doesn't matter who was killed, who the assassin is, or what the motivation for the assassination was but if you find footage of someone unloading a gun into someone until they're dead funny, it makes you a bit of a sick fuck. I know the youtube footage was taken down but you might want to consider that other people don't have the same sense of humour about watching someone get murdered as you do.

And you clearly have no fucks to give about people who may not want to watch someone being shot. A curse on all you thoughtless fucks who think it's acceptable to show people being killed, maimed, or torture porn of any variety, without nary a trigger warning and without a care how it might affect other people, for whatever political point you want to make. The casual not giving a shit about how people will react, whether or not violence has touched upon them personally, the way dead bodies are shared in an angry, macho sort of way. Some years back, my neighbours were shot dead by an abusive man. Thanks to the internet, I now know probably what it looked like. Cheers for that.

Who's endorsing anything? I'm making fun of his murder in the same way that, say, one can laugh at that video of a Brussel's police-chief getting attacked/knocked-out (he could have died if he hit his head hard enough) without endorsing trade unionism.

Ultimately, they both deserve what they get, but the acts are certainly not going to bring about progressive change. It's simply humour, all in jest.

That's just mind blowing. Everyone on the right is just so confused, thinking they're anarchists and what not. I knew this was going to happen: first they steal the word libertarian, then anarchist, and next thing you know they're calling themselves communists. lmfao

I got a kick out of the SNL parody of Trump's press conference. In continuing his politically incorrect crusade (a strange new way of saying stupid and vulgar) he lashed out at reporters, calling their news organizations 'failing pile of garbage' and 'fake news.'

BERLIN will return thousands of hipsters when Britain leaves the EU, it has emerged.

Angela Merkel confirmed that British hipsters would be expelled post-Brexit as they have little to offer Germany except basic website design skills and minimal techno club nights.

She said: “We cannot be expected to support thousands of aspiring musicians and bloggers with names like ‘DJ Leo Fukk’ and ‘Tufty’.

“They are nice enough but utterly useless. We have plenty of local young people who can serve cocktails in a surly way.”

Theresa May had hoped Berlin and Barcelona would sign a proposed ‘Hipster Accord’ where they agree to keep an estimated 186,000 UK hipsters in exchange for unlimited free entrance to London tourist attractions.

Berlin-based hipster Wayne Hayes said: “I had hoped to remain here for the rest of my life, or a least until I get too old to take ketamine in former meat-packing warehouses and have to go back to Essex to sleep in my parents’ conservatory.”

Simple Sabotage Field Manual.

http://www.businessinsider.com/oss-manual-sabotage-productivity-2015-11

Here’s a list of five particularly timeless tips from the Simple Sabotage Field Manual:

Managers and Supervisors: To lower morale and production, be pleasant to inefficient workers; give them undeserved promotions. Discriminate against efficient workers; complain unjustly about their work.
Employees: Work slowly. Think of ways to increase the number of movements needed to do your job: use a light hammer instead of a heavy one; try to make a small wrench do instead of a big one.
Organizations and Conferences: When possible, refer all matters to committees, for "further study and consideration." Attempt to make the committees as large and bureaucratic as possible. Hold conferences when there is more critical work to be done.
Telephone: At office, hotel and local telephone switchboards, delay putting calls through, give out wrong numbers, cut people off “accidentally,” or forget to disconnect them so that the line cannot be used again.
Transportation: Make train travel as inconvenient as possible for enemy personnel. Issue two tickets for the same seat on a train in order to set up an “interesting” argument.

He went on to appear on Britain's Got Talent in May 2009. He danced a soft jig on the show, received a standing ovation by the audience and was put through to the next round. He did not make the live semi-finals. In 2004 he was found not guilty of indecent assault against a seven-year-old girl.

Could someone tell me what's in the Galloway tweet? He's blocked me.

Funniest thing I read today was a text I received at work from my daughter who was working at home. It said "We have no power." She then followed it up with " I don't mean we have no power and all power to the people, I mean the electricity is out."
I love that she felt that she needed to clarify that one.

From a thread annoyed at all the "tolerant left" cartoons about the UC Berkley protests.

"Antifa Black Bloc slammed two fireworks into the campus, (Commander In) Chief. We was comin’ back from the city of San Francisco to Berkeley. We’d just delivered Milo. One of the good ones. Eleven hat wearing men went into the counterprotest. Our line went down in 12 minutes.

Didn’t see the first leftist for about a half-hour. Anarchist. 6-footer. You know how you know that in the streets Chief? You can tell by lookin’ from the hoody to the boots. What we didn’t know, was that our counterprotest was so secret, no distress tweet had been sent. They didn’t even list us overdue for 6 hours. Very first streetlight, Chief, leftists come cruisin’ by, so we formed ourselves into tight groups. It was sorta like you see in the calenders. Infantry squares like in the old calendars like the Battle of Bunker Hill and the idea was the leftist come to the nearest man, that man he starts trollin’ and posturin’ and sometimes that leftist he go away… but sometimes he wouldn’t go away.

Sometimes that leftist looks right at ya. Right into your eyes. And the thing about a leftist is he’s got watery eyes. Weepy eyes. Like a baby’s eyes. When he comes at ya, he doesn’t even seem to be an adult… ’til he punches ya, and those watery eyes roll over commie red and then… ah then you hear that terrible high-pitched virtue signalin’. The Overton Window closes up, and despite all your trollin’ and your posturin’ those leftists come in and… they tolerate you to pieces.

Anyway, the speech was cancelled.”

Japanese men's group say Valentine's Day is conspiracy, hurt their feelings

As Japan prepares to celebrate Valentine's Day, a cranky group of Marxist protesters have called for an end to public displays of love, claiming it hurts their feelings.

Members of 'Kakuhido', or the Revolutionary Alliance of Men that Women find Unattractive, unfurled a giant "Smash Valentine's Day" banner as the party-poopers set off to try and overthrow the annual celebration of romance. [...]

Young Engels complaining about his family in a letter to Marx:

If I get a letter it's sniffed all over before it reaches me. As they’re all known to be communist letters they evoke such piously doleful expressions every time that it's enough to drive one out of one’s mind. If I go out — the same expression. If I sit in my room and work — communism, of course, as they know — the same expression. I can't eat, drink, sleep, let out a fart, without being confronted by this same accursed lamb-of-God expression. Whether I go out or stay at home, remain silent or speak, read or write, whether I laugh or whether I don’t — do what I will, my old man immediately assumes this lamentable grimace. Moreover my old man’s so stupid that he lumps together communism and liberalism as “revolutionary,” and, whatever I may say to the contrary, is constantly blaming me, e.g. for the infamies perpetrated by the English bourgeoisie in Parliament. In any case it is now the season of piety in this house. A week ago today a brother and sister of mine were confirmed, today the whole tribe went toddling off to Communion — the body of the Lord did its work; this morning the doleful expressions surpassed themselves. Pour comble de malheur I spent yesterday evening with [Moses] Hess in Elberfeld, where we held forth about communism until two in the morning. Today, of course, long faces over my late return, hints that I might have been in jug. Finally they plucked up enough courage to ask where I had been. — With Hess. — “With Hess! Great heavens!” — Pause, intensified Christian dismay in their faces. — “What company you keep!” — Sighs, etc. It's enough to drive one mad. You have no idea of the malice of this Christian persecution of my “soul.”

— Engels, March 17th 1845.

John Oliver's farcical portrayal of the US as a force for good in the world with "some problems here and there, but nothing that compares to Russia." I don't usually agree with Trump (I never do), but he was spot on (whether intentional or not) when he questioned America's innocence. The fact that Oliver was so taken aback by that statement just makes my skin crawl. Someone needs to remind Oliver how the US has been overthrowing democratically-elected presidents for decades now, or how the US is ranked in world polls as one of the greatest threats to world peace.
