Yeah, we all already know that idiots like Ned and Meade have no idea what they're talking about regarding socialism, but I expect more from Flanders's alliterations. This is one of the weakest efforts of his I've ever seen.

Ned, what you have written in the title is that there is something called a "Socialist Slurpie" and it is sizing a scheme, and it (still the Slurpie) has been skewered. Not one bit of that makes any sense.

Horrible Headline Hurts Head.

Years ago, I read a history of American tobacco companies (I cannot recall the name, I'm sorry to say) which pretty much outlined what we all already know: they are evil bastards with no regard for human health. But the single fact that stuck with me the most was the origin of cigarette counter displays: they were specifically implemented to make it easy for children to shoplift cigarettes.

I'm not calling you or Bloomberg nazis, but a "public health issue" is exactly how the national socialists framed their perceived social hygiene problem.

Not that kind of wow. The other kind.

Thanks to Jason for linking me to this thread, which I would have otherwise ignored because I generally ignore Ned's topics. But this one turned out amusing.

I think the government should confiscate all guns unless you need one to shoot at feral cats.

Discuss.

I'll tell you one thing: Feral cats do not skewer slurpies. Nor are they socialist. And you rarely see a fat feral cat.

OK, that's three things. And it makes as much sense as the rest of this thread. Damn, that's four things. D'oh!

I think the government should confiscate all guns but protect the right to bear feral cats.
