  Blog Noir. An interplay of cultural references, snark, the occasional smutty joke, Dadaism, Mamaism, and a genuine outrage at the horrors of The Situation.

The Awards Committee forgot to order a properly engraved trophy from Ken's Kitchen. This one will be replaced forthwith.

No. Your Other Mark

This week the crack writing team here at I Miss Fafblog, Spot! was confounded by a report from the Utah County Republicans convention, during which Satan's devious scheme to destroy the United States using illegal immigrants was debated. It was Ken who would, with a not insignificant amount of courage, post the news article unaltered, yet illustrated. For how do you satirize and make light by magnifying the absurdities of "reality" when it seems that it is "reality" which is mocking us?

Perhaps Mephistopheles was trying to destroy satire using illegal immigrants with a bank-shot off the zealots in the Utah County Republicans!

All hope was nearly lost before Mark R stepped forward with his holy absurdity shield and a John Lennon quote, which he wielded to repel Beelzebub's assault. (Though described here as "holy" due to the nature of the attack, I think the shield is actually made out of hard rubber or something.)

Mark R:
1) I enjoy satire as much as the next person, but to assist the reader in deducing that it IS satire, it is helpful to have clear indicators of the non-factual nature of the fictitious incident. Ken, this 'report' needs a little bit of work along those lines. It's not up to your usual very high standard.

2)With regard to "destroy[ing] Christian America and replac[ing] it with a godless new world order" - John Lennon set out this goal very clearly:

Imagine no religion
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today -

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I just hope one day you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Of course, the man who wrote those words was shot dead in front of his wife. Coincidence, or cosmic justice? You decide.

Corrections - in last paragraph above, for "man" substitute "foreigner", and insert "Asian Buddhist" prior to "wife."

Old Scratch is no match for you, Mark R! Nice job!

Of course, we may well end up in need of such a shield against cosmic justice as well, during this epic, convoluted battle of good, evil, moderately good, not exactly evil and morally equivocal.

In such trying times as these, it is good to have old friends-- like Doug Richardson and mistah charley, ph.d. with his many tendrils reaching into comment threads everywhere --sending links and traffic our way.

Missing Fafblog picture of the week

Halcylon days.


"What did your mother and I tell you about watching the commercials?"

"That if they need commercials to sell it, it isn't worth buying."

"That's right kids, they're either selling you a price that's too high, or a need that isn't necessary, or a superiority that is superfluous."
