Skepchick Quickies 7.11

Omfg, I’m sitting here waiting for maintenance guys to come turn off the beeping alarm and my soul is slowly being killed beep by BEEP.  If I had a soul, anyway.  TGIF, at least.

  1. Whenever the religious right wants us to boycott something for some stupid reason, it makes me want to do the exact opposite. I don’t dislike McDonalds, but I try to keep my fast food splurges down to once a month.

    Why can’t they boycott diet and regular exercise? It would be the best thing for my health they ever did.

  2. From the faith healer story: “… Bill Wise sits quietly with one arm raised to the sky, the other tightly clutching his 2-year-old daughter, who was born with her bladder and colon outside of her body.”
    Yikes!!! I sure hope Mr. Wise is putting more “faith” in medical science than in the preacher’s supposed healing touch.

  3. Re: world’s oldest profession. It ain’t prostitution, it’s begging. Somebody had to ask for it!
    (joke stolen from an episode of Barney Miller)

  4. We could always invite those capuchins to TAM 7. Their monkey business would be legal there.

  5. For their sake the Religious Right better not boycott Ignorance… their heads might explode.

    I do hope that they get around to boycotting me someday. It would be nice to be certain of never receiving another bible for Christmas for as long as I live.

  6. The religious right has to be careful. I mean, supporting civil rights for homosexuals is just the start. Next thing you know, they’ll be adding highly-addictive chemicals that make you gay to the cheeseburgers.

  7. I think it is fine if they boycott things. The far-out Christian right seems to take such delight in boycotting anything and everything they don’t like, and the logical conclusion of it is that they will have to come up with their own version of everything. Christian music, Christian talk radio, Christian attire, Christian books — can Christian fast food and Christian gas stations be all that far behind?

    They’re already a subculture with their own version of nearly everything pop-related (there was a great article about this in Slate several weeks ago, which I may need to go find), and if being separate makes them happy … I say more power to them.
