More News from Jesusland


Some people actually sit down and think about this stuff?

From the Hoosier Gazette:

John Hostettler, the Congressman representing the 8th district of Indiana, has been convinced by local religious groups to introduce legislation in the House that would change the name of an Interstate 69 extension to a more moral sounding number.

There are plans to extend the interstate from Indianapolis through southwestern Indiana all the way through Texas into Mexico in the coming years. While most believe this highway will be good for the state’s economy, religious conservatives believe “I-69” sounds too risqué and want to change the interstate’s number.

Idiots! I don’t even want to start about ABC having to apologize for showing a woman’s bare back. The HORROR!!

Thanks to Joe from Left Edge North for pointing out that the Highway 69 article is a hoax. I bet most people wouldn’t have guessed it because it sounds true in today’s political climate.

Say No To Grandpa Joe


This is funny. And true!!

Our goal is to expose the dark underbelly of the story. To reveal once and for all the truth about the only real villain in the movie (and no, it’s not Sluggworth). It’s Grandpa Joe.

We’re going to break down his flaws and point them out with carefully gathered evidence from the canonical sources: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Bookstore Organized by Color


This is a cool idea unless you are the poor schmuck who is actually trying to find a book you need and can’t because you have no idea what color it is.

For one amazing week in November, Adobe Bookshop in San Francisco has agreed to allow its estimated 20,000 books to be reclassified by color. Shifting from red to orange to yellow to green, the books will follow the spectrum continuously, changing Adobe from a neighborhood bookshop into a magical library—but only for one week.
