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?

nothing to do with politics.

THERE were tense scenes at today’s weigh-in for Conor McGregor’s upcoming first child, as the spirited foetus squared up to the doctor performing his ultrasound, reportedly telling him to ‘get that fuckin’ thing out of my face’.

...

Swimming in amniotic fluid with the same swagger and attitude as Conor, the utero-weight champion went on a rant that would make his dad proud, stating in no uncertain terms that he wasn’t here to be poked and prodded at by ‘some prick who couldn’t make it as a real doctor’..

Hastings man confused about 11th century governance.
https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2017/mar/29/brexit-battle-hastings-norman-conquest-article-50

Joy proudly tells of how his family goes back all the way to Hastings in the 11th century. “The concept of being governed by an unelected body would have been absolutely abhorrent to anyone in those days. It’s almost like the state has been lost. It was like another takeover, we relinquished our law and power to an unelected body,” he says .

Someone should gently break it to Mr Joy, 68, that hereditary monarchy was not exactly a mandate from the masses.

To be fair though, the pre-norman kings weren't strictly hereditary but had to be ratified by the Witan council. The last Saxon king Harold was actually elected. None of this stops that bloke from Hastings being a tad deluded, mind you.

Bloomberg, 53, has long been an outspoken advocate for school de-segregation — sometimes drawing the ire of Department of Education supervisors.

But Bloomberg’s latest advocacy — complaints against the DOE for alleged racial discrimination toward students — has prompted a retaliatory investigation and possible removal, she claims.

...

An investigator met with Assistant Principal Carla Laban, and allegedly said the inquiry was related to “communist activities taking place at the school,” court papers claim.

Perhaps it would be more appropriate in a thread not entitled 'funniest thing you read.' I know of some independent news networks that show deceased people, and it shouldn't be censored in that context in my opinion (a warning would be nice though).

Powers planned by the Government aiming to pave the way for commercial space flights in Britain will be included in the Queen’s Speech alongside a raft of investments in transport infrastructure.

The legislation, according to Department for Transport (DfT), will allow the launch of satellites from the UK for the first time, horizontal flights to the edge of space for scientific experiments and the establishment of spaceports in regions across Britain.

The Dami Mission (Korean: 다미선교회) was a Christian religious movement founded in South Korea by Lee Jang Rim (Korean: 이장림; Hanja: 李長林). It received worldwide attention after Lee predicted that the rapture and end of the world would occur on 28 October 1992. After the prediction failed Lee was convicted of defrauding his followers out of millions of dollars.

VEGANS have repeated their claim that they have their own type of cheese.

Despite being told they are demonstrably wrong, the vegans keep saying it, as if somehow that could eventually make it true.

Vegan Tom Booker said: “When I first went vegan, I was excited to tell all my non-vegan friends about how I was saving the world, and how they were all basically Nazis.

“But I was also quite sad about pizza.

“I needn’t have worried, because we have our own vegan cheese, and it tastes exactly the same as planet-destroying cow cheese, but without the aftertaste of murder. You can barely even tell that it’s made from nuts.”

He added: “We also have our own nut milk.”

Booker’s girlfriend, Emma Bradshaw, said: “It’s great that Tom’s so involved in some fucking cause. But it’s not cheese, it’s a rubbery, beige delusion.”

THERESA May has admitted that the ‘devastating’ election result made her shed a tear which burned through a desk, three floors and an intern.

The tear, which the prime minister said was shed ‘for Britain’, rolled down her face like a bead of liquid mercury and hit the desk with a bang and flash which blinded everybody in the room.

When the smoke cleared, party staff realised from the screams downstairs that it had burned straight through the floor and was causing chaos on the level below.

May said: “It kept slowly burning through carpet, concrete and steel without showing any diminishing of its size or effect. The ceiling tiles looked like a meteor had hit them.

“Luckily on the third floor it landed on an intern and on contact with flesh began to mutate into something new and horrifying, which gave us time to stop it.

“The tear was eventually extracted and is being kept in a secure facility at Porton Down.”

May added: “They believe my little tear could be used to create a new bioweapon which could lay waste to whole continents. Nice one.”

Horror Director George A Romero may well be dead, but so far nobody has dared get close enough to make sure.

Romero, who created the zombie genre of films and inspired generations of writers, directors and game creators to follow in his shambling, bloodied footsteps, is understood to have stopped breathing last night but that means nothing. Nothing, you fools.

Fans and followers have been very carefully showing their respects from a safe distance; you know, just in case.

His influence over contemporary pop-culture was immense: from World War Z to The Walking Dead to the White Walkers of Game of Thrones, it is unlikely that any of these things would have happened if he hadn’t filmed a low-budget shocker in 1968 – a shocker that was far deeper than it appeared upon first sight.

That film, Night of the Living Dead, has been described as the only film ‘to truly capture what Pittsburgh is all about’.

Using horror as social commentary, he went on to cover consumerism, militarism and economics followed – inspiring in his wake creatives such as Peter Jackson, Guillermo del Toro and Stephen King.

He also inspired Eli Roth, but you can’t have everything.

Romero had a fierce satirical mind which highlighted the absurdities of modern life through the medium of taking ideas to their logical extreme and ridiculing them, but we here at NewsThump wouldn’t know anything about that.

Rest in Peace, George. Please.

QUESTIONS have been raised as to whether men’s sport should be given equal coverage to women’s sport.

Yesterday saw England’s cricketers win the women’s world cup in a thrilling finale before England’s footballers beat Spain 2-0 at the women’s European Championships, something the men’s team will never achieve without drugs.

Sport watcher Wayne Hayes said: “It’s time we admitted that men aren’t really equipped to do sport. They lack the determination, the passion, and most of all, the killer instinct that sets our sportswomen apart from the ordinary bloke on the street.

“Giving men’s sport equal coverage is a good idea in theory, but I don’t know anyone who actually enjoys watching it.”

Football fan Tom Logan added: “Watching the Lionesses, I felt enjoyment, mixed with excitement and pride. As an England supporter I’ve never experienced any of those emotions before.”

Meanwhile, a British man did achieve some sporting success at the weekend but no-one cared because all he did was ride around France on his bicycle

Donald Trump and Kim Jong-Un have escalated their risible dick-waving contest today.

Trump, who is so insecure about the size of his dong that he has made impromptu speeches about how big it is, told reporters that he has an absolutely huge todger, far bigger than Kim’s, and a lot of people say that.

Meanwhile, Kim Jong-Un, who is so fat he hasn’t seen his own penis without a mirror in over five years, responded by dancing around shouting that he has a massive – yes massive – wang and if he got it out – which he might – then you’d be terrified.

“We must be vigilant to prevent Kim Jong-Un penetrating the US by the back door and lobbing in big ones from behind our backs,” said Trump in a speech that inadvertently said a lot more about him than his opponent.

Kim responded to Trump’s increase in pressure by threatening to whip it out at any moment, just you see if he won’t.

“I could, you know, and you’d all be amazed how big it is,” he told senior party cadres to rapturous applause.

“The only reason I don’t is because I’m a kind a generous man who doesn’t want to shame others. Yes, that’s it.”

Much of the world is ambivalent about the ongoing conflict, with many people saying that if they want to watch unlikeable twats wave their dicks at each other there’s the lead up to the Mayweather/ McGregor fight for that.

The Tory party was left reeling last night after Theresa May, after spending an afternoon on the sake in Tokyo, drunkenly announced that she will lead the Tories into the next election.

Mrs May, currently in Japan to desperately plead with them not to forget us after Brexit, added that she would ‘take the f**king lot of you on’.

The Prime Minister made the claims in a shambolic BBC interview.

“Well, it was clear the PM was drunk for the moment she said she was definitely going to lead the party into the next election,” said a Tory party insider.

“I mean, obviously. Only a thoroughly inebriated person would make that claim in her position.”

However, despite making such an absurd claim, the interview only went downhill from there.

“Well, I think the catastrophic flatulence was probably the worst thing. Poor old Ben Wright looked like he was about to turn green. I had no idea that sake had such a disastrous effect on the gastric system.

“The PM then went on to state that Phillip Hammond ‘could f**k off for a start, the poncey streak of piss,’ she visibly adjusted her underwear as her ‘pants are halfway up my f**king arse’, and suggested that she could beat up Jeremy Corbyn ‘no bother’.”

The interview ended in disarray as a voice off camera could be heard shouting ‘kebab mate?’ Before the PM staggered off muttering ‘f**king mint. Better be enough hot sauce on’.

The interview is already being considered as one of her more competent performances since becoming Prime Minister.

The bomb on the London Underground today was so shit that not even ISIS have claimed to be behind it.

ISIS, who are so miserably desperate they’ll claim to be responsible for tailbacks on the A14, your milk going off and Russ Abbott’s Madhouse back in the 1980s, have decided that this risible attempt is beneath even them – and that’s saying something.

“In the name of Allah, the just, the merciful, this was nothing to do with us squire,” said ISIS spokesman Shimonu Al-Qwilliams from behind a cratered wall somewhere in the last corner of Raqqa that they still control.

“You remember that time you trod in dog poo and then walked on your new carpet before you noticed? That was us. And when you got so pissed you ate a dodgy kebab and had really bad squitters in the morning? That was us too.

“But this pathetic effort? It’s too crap even for us.

A man has reacted to a trailer for the new Tomb Raider film with a complaint regarding breasts.

Simon Williams, 31, watched the trailer for the new film in the spare room of his mum’s house, before simply saying “no” and slamming his laptop shut.

“Large knockers are key to Lara Croft’s character,” insisted Williams.

If you are inside the “alt-right” information bubble, you might be preparing yourself for a civil war to commence this Saturday.

Since late September, the idea has been circulating on Facebook groups, subreddit message boards, Twitter, and leading conspiracy media outlets that on 4 November, anti-fascist groups will begin a violent insurrection.
Distract and dismiss: how rightwing media saw the Russia indictments

Some websites are telling their readers that antifa groups are “planning to kill every single Trump voter, Conservative and gun owner” this weekend. Hundreds of Facebook posts show how seriously consumers of such media are taking the news, and comments like “One more threat against white people and I swear to God I’m going to take a goddamn car and run over every fucking one of them” are not unrepresentative of the response.

But antifa groups have no plans to protest that day, and the small leftist groups who are planning protests have only dubious connections to the antifa movement. So what gives?

The whole thing rests on some very slender reeds, according to Spencer Sunshine, who recently wrote a report on the theories for the far right-monitoring group Political Research Associates. In the conspiracy underground on YouTube, he explains, there has been talk that “there was going to be a civil war” starting in November for some months.

Beginning in late September, three things kicked it a into higher gear. First, Refuse Fascism, a small group linked to the Revolutionary Communist party, staged a visually spectacular protest in Los Angeles. They blocked the 101 freeway and held up signs that enigmatically spelled out “Nov 4 it begins”. This is the same group that is organizing a series of protests around the country against the “Trump-Pence regime” this weekend.

Second, a video posted on a Facebook page called Vets Before Illegals went viral. The video, entitled “Antifa sets a date for civil war”, claimed that “on their website, they are calling for an open civil war that will start in November”, and set out alleged plans for attacking police officers, then citizens and the government.

Last, but by no means least, the rumor was picked up and amplified by Alex Jones, the radio star with an audience of millions. As Sunshine explains, Jones “is a kind of meta-conspiracy theorist now” who “harvests other people’s theories” and repackages them to fit his narratives and his audience.

Once Jones had mentioned it, Sunshine explains, the rumor mill exploded: “Once Jones says something, even more people pick up on it and put their own spin on it.” Jones’s website was still running the story on Wednesday morning.
An absurd turn

In recent days, the story took an absurd turn, and had its closest brush with more mainstream conservative media, when Gateway Pundit, a longtime conservative blog that has recently expanded into news coverage, published a story by its White House correspondent, Lucian Wintrich, claiming that an “antifa leader” had promised to “behead white parents” on 4 November.

The tweet the story was based on, however, was a joke from an account that had no apparent ties to any antifa groups.

In a telephone interview, Wintrich conceded that the tweet his reporting was based on was not serious, and that it was unlikely that there would be a revolution on Saturday. But he did not back away from the story, presenting it as a critique of leftist rhetoric.

“The radical left is always making jokes about killing white people. What would happen if I made a joke about killing all black parents? That would be a national headline.

“If it’s appropriate for them to demonize [conservatives] over quite innocent jokes, why would we just roll over when they make inappropriate jokes? What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.”

The piece included a detailed account of antifa ideology, which included the claim that the activists “are larpers (‘live action role-play’) attempting to find someone/thing to sexually interact with”.

When asked what sources he drew on in reporting on their ideology, Wintrich said: “I did go to school at Bard College. I received my education around people who I’m sure are on terrorist watchlists as socialist or communist extremists.”

As Sunshine says, Refuse Fascism activists have been supportive of antifa groups in the past, and often show up to the same demonstrations, but there is “no formal connection” between them and antifa. They are also small, he says, and their protest is explicitly nonviolent and specifically directed against the administration, not rightwing activists or police.

Mark Bray, historian and author of Antifa: The Antifascist Handbook, agrees. “Prior to 2017, the far right didn’t really know what antifa was,” he says, adding that the focus on these groups has a number of causes. It is an extension of the demonization of anarchists in general, but it is also a way to smear mainstream liberals who have no links to antifascist groups.

And to some extent, this particular panic has succeeded in energizing a particular slice of the right. As Sunshine puts it: “It motivates the base, it’s part of the apocalyptic narrative they use – there’s always a dangerous event just over the horizon.” Also, he says: “It’s a call for vigilante activity. There are currently tons of threats against leftwing activists.”

And unless there is a confrontation as a result of rightwing counter-protesters turning out to shut down the “revolution”, it’s all likely to come to nothing.

“There is no revolution or civil war planned for 4 November,” says Bray. “You can quote me on that.”

“Right now, those who are best implementing the social doctrine of the Church are the Chinese,” a senior Vatican official has said.

Bishop Marcelo Sánchez Sorondo, chancellor of the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences, praised the Communist state as “extraordinary”, saying: “You do not have shantytowns, you do not have drugs, young people do not take drugs”. Instead, there is a “positive national conscience”.

The bishop told the Spanish-language edition of Vatican Insider that in China “the economy does not dominate politics, as happens in the United States, something Americans themselves would say.”

Bishop Sánchez Sorondo said that China was implementing Pope Francis’s encyclical Laudato Si’ better than many other countries and praised it for defending Paris Climate Accord. “In that, it is assuming a moral leadership that others have abandoned”, he added.

As for what is happening in the capitalist countries of the Western world today, each struggle in defence of our already-acquired social gains stands in direct confrontation with global capital. There is an objective united front in the world: it is between the struggle of the working class and masses in the capitalist countries, and the courageous anti-imperialist alliance China-Russia-Iran-Syria. In our capitalist countries – particularly in the United States and Europe – the organisations of the left are facing the need to integrate and reinforce this [objectively] united anti-imperialist front.

I don't know if people have seen much about what US Maoists have been up to these past few weeks, but some of it has been... interesting. Here's a sample:

A comrade once noted that Saint Louis has the potential to be the storm center of anti-revisionism, and we have taken that to heart. We oppose revisionists and fake “revolutionary” organizations that ignore class interests and eschew Communist politics for liberal feel good activism. We oppose those who support working with gentrifiers under the auspices of cleaning up the community. Phony organisations like For The People-STL, Maoist in name only, that insist on building a United front with these class collaborators are revisionists of the highest caliber and will be struggled against relentlessly.

May Day, since its inception, has been drenched in the blood of our martyrs and should be treated as a celebration of uncompromising resistance against the ruling class. Cookouts are not an act of rebellion against the bourgeoisie...

Surrounded by a sea of leftists from various reformist and revisionist organizations at a May Day BBQ largely isolated from the masses, two Community Power Network affiliates confronted serial revisionist and attempted wrecker of the national Maoist Movement, Hei Hongbing (now going by Christopher Winston publicly) on his snitch and pig work, local attempts at wreckerism, and phony Maoism.

While no physical harm was done to anybody, cries from the left of “assault!” And pleas that May Day is about peace and unity further reinforce the necessity of stomping out revisionism and the many ways is rears its anti-people head at every turn. Not an inch will be given to the service of the ruling class, whether consciously or not.

From their promotion of electoral politics and working with gentrifiers, to the failure of a Maoist organization to apply the mass line by encouraging store clerks to call the cops on drug dealers instead of offering solutions, the struggle against revisionism will be a long and protracted one. However, with the spirit of revolutionary optimism, the reclamation of revolutionary violence and the masses behind us, we can defeat revisionism amongst the left and successfully aid in the construction of the Party.

The one about how to apply the mass line when struggling with someone who's being postmodern by being late to things was pretty memorable as well.

Progressives who are inclined to lash out at the monarchy and have fired their vitriol at the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex may be missing the point.

Leftist critics were right about Britain’s recent royal wedding, but for the wrong reason. They conceded how Meghan Markle is a sympathetic figure - a feminist and a mixed-race woman - but they opposed the form of monarchy that was celebrated (if we ignore a few complaints about taxpayers’ money being spent).

What these critics failed to perceive is the emancipatory dimension of this form itself, of the big public ritual which socially links a community. To explain this point, we should go back to Novalis, the key figure of German Romanticism, who is usually perceived as a representative of the conservative turn of Romanticism, but his position is much more paradoxical.

The backstory is that one of the few songs 90% of the swedish population can sing along to goes on about how "state and capital are in the same boat together but they arent the ones rowing" it has lots of verses and describes various aspects of capitalism. We listened to both the original from early seventies and the punk cover (more famous) from 1980 during a long car trip. Why he was on about the form was a bit of a mystery however.

Crappy translation of the shorter punk version found on da interwebz:

The State and Capital
Capital raises the rents,
and the state the housing allowance
So one can cheat a little crumb
with the iron wage law
And pay even less in wages
than the price for food and rent
Because the state runs better,
if the cost of living goes
even higher

Side by side, they help each other out
The state and capital sit in the same boat
But they aren’t the one’s rowing
Rowing so the sweat is dripping
And the whip that tickles, doesn’t tickle
their fat necks either

The charge of the schools is as it should
to teach the working class
If the brooms are going to clean properly
you can’t neglect the handle
Barriers and quotas and standardized tests,
it’s a system made to separate
The wheat from the chaff and move everyone
to their rightful home

Yes, side by side, together they push forward
The state and capital, two wolves in sheep's clothing
But they aren’t the one’s rowing
Rowing so the sweat is dripping
And the whip that tickles, doesn’t tickle
their fat necks either

Side by side, they help each other out
The state and capital sit in the same boat
But they aren’t the one’s rowing
Rowing so the sweat is dripping
And the whip that tickles, doesn’t tickle
their fat necks either

The tempo is raised by machines,
here we drill the elite
Production doesn’t have a place for the one
who has become threadbare
But so that no one thinks there is anything wrong
with the heavy piecework
He is put on disability and taken care of by the compassionate unemployment office

Yes, side by side, together they push forward
The state and capital, two wolves in sheep's clothing
But they aren’t the one’s rowing
Rowing so the sweat is dripping
And the whip that tickles, doesn’t tickle
their fat necks either

Side by side... Aaah aah aaaah!

I quite like it. How do the lyrics sound when you understand Swedish, compared to the english translation? "The day-to-day expansion rate is regulated by the business cycle, Then the woman is assigned to her place in the economic structure" is the sort of song only a left communist would write, with their usual eye for style. I remember someone posting up the songs Guy Debord and that lot wrote which i also thought sounded alright, but someone said that if you speak French it sounds a bit naff. Wondered if this was the case here too, or if the lyrics are catchier in Swedish.

Also, how did it happen that most people can sing it, is it the Swedish Tubthumping? Why do tory youth types sing it?

That translation I quoted is not very elegant to say the least... Some songs have reached a status in sweden that's hard to compare with how it works in the UK. From my 12 years living there I never saw any evidence that songs reach that level in the UK. Could be just not getting it as an 'outsider' or the relative tiny population here. Or that swedes are obsessed with summer and some songs that get associated with it become long term massive.

That may be the best argument available to Jones in defending the suit, but it also puts him once more in a position where his lawyers are arguing in court that the things he says during his broadcasts aren’t true—and, in fact, that any “reasonable reader or listener” would conclude that Jones, when he makes statements like “the green screen isn’t set right,” isn’t speaking factually. If Jones isn’t to be taken seriously when making statements like that, though, it becomes harder to understand what, exactly, Infowars is supposed to be informing its audience of.

This is a version of the defence used by the ratings agencies to avoid any responsibility for the financial crash. IT doesn't seem to have done them any harm.

On his Facebook profile, Manchik said that his ancestors “originally came to planet Earth from a planet orbiting a star in the Pleiades star cluster located in the constellation of Taurus.” But that's not the only quirky thing about Manchik. Earlier this year he gave a slur-filled speech where he couldn’t remember his own website address.

The entertainment in the hotel was all focused and catered for the Spanish. Why can’t the Spanish go somewhere else for their holidays?

Theresa May’s Brexit deal has been slammed by arch-leave MP Nadine Dorries – because it means the UK will be left without any Members of the European Parliament.

The Tory backbencher, who campaigned tirelessly to get the country out of Europe, said Ms May's deal would leave the UK without any influence in Europe.

“This is a very sad place to be,” she told Sky News. “But unfortunately, the future of the country and of our relationship with Europe is at stake. This deal gives us no voice, no votes, no MEPs, no commissioner.”

I hope the next twist in the story is that RGA get beat up by vegans. Also, had a look at other recent stories on their site, saw they had one about the nazi attack on an Austin anarchist bookshop, thought to myself "I bet they're going to work some weird anti-anarchist angle into this", and boy oh boy they did not disappoint:

"While the bookstore staff and its official Facebook page blame Nazis for the attack, local Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) members rushed to accuse local Maoists, hoping to create rumor and gossip, objectively serving the repressive state.

Maoists in Austin, as well as many community organizations which support them, have a longstanding organizational boycott of MWB, due to the financial backers of the bookstore issuing a ban on group study of Communist materials including V.I. Lenin’s masterpiece The State and Revolution.

According to bookstore backers, there were fears that the Maoists were using such texts to rapidly convert anarchists into revolutionaries.

“Maoist actions are politically clear and distinct,” said a local supporter of the Maoist movement. “Anyone in Austin can verify this, the use of red paint, the hammer and sickle, etc. are the symbols of Maoism. While we uphold the boycott called for by RGA, no one supports a fascist attack against the bookstore.”

“MWB’s vulnerability is what is tragic,” the source continued. “By alienating the only local forces who could physically defend them, they become easy prey to boost the confidence of fascists which objectively harms the city and its people.”

Incendiary resolutely condemns all fascist activity as well as all attempts from DSA members to carry out pig work against local revolutionaries to the benefit of the fascist perpetrators.

MonkeyWrench staff, while correcting the slander of the DSA members, failed to take any action to remove the comments of those who would criminalize the local revolutionary movement."

So, "it's shocking and disgusting that people would think we'd attack this bookstore! Admittedly, we fucking hate them because they won't let us do our Lenin reading groups there, but if we attacked them we'd have painted more hammer and sickles. Anyway, so shocked and appalled that people would suspect our wacky collective of attacking these people we hate."
