So an Iranian cleric says scantily-clad women cause Earthquakes. Makes sense, considering how Iran is one of the most earthquake-prone countries on earth and also one where women dress conservatively. Haha! Silly fundamentalist Muslim. Its not like inane, unscientific garbage like that is given equal weight in our media.
Here’s the third installment of the strips I’m doing with Kyle Mizokami at warisboring.com
Blogger is changing at the end of this month and I’m going to have to make a switch – probably to WordPress. Unfortunately I’ve had zero time to look into this and am not sure that I’ll get around to it before the deadline. I’m going to try to keep there from being an interruption, but realistically it will probably happen as work has piled up considerably. As far as I know (which is not much) I’ll be able to keep the same url for the blog, so stick around!
The Supreme Court is making me nervous. Not only because it’s stacked with four right-wing radicals, but nine people who seem a little out of touch with technology. DC Dicta’s reporting on a sexting case last week got a lot of attention. All the justices seemed a bit befuddled.* Here’s Scalia, unfamiliar with the technology presumably because it wasn’t mentioned by name in the Constitution.
"Could Quon print these spicy little conversations and send them to his buddies?" Scalia asked.
Yes. Usually when I have a sexually explicit e-mail or text I want to share with my buddies, I print them out and mail them. Or, if I want to cut down on transmission time, simply fax them over.
*To be fair to Clarence Thomas, he never asks questions so no one really knows what he thinks. It would also be naive to assumed he doesn’t know about the latest ways you can sexually harass people.
Wednesday: Shakin’ Your Booty
Walking back from picking up my daily salad I was thinking, what are the most improbable professions or job titles? I’m going to start the bidding with “celebrity pathologist”. Whaddya got? Any others?
“Online staff cartoonist.”

Arizona passed a “Show Your Papers, Please” law to target brown people for harassment. I’ll be happy to see them kick all the illegals out and the white retirees get off their asses to wash dishes and do landscaping.
Dan F. writes in with some erudite foreign policy observations:
how on earth can you compare Israel and Iran?
The difference is Israel has had nukes for yeras [sic] no proble[sic], as some[sic] as Iran gets just one they will use it!!!
Wake up dummy
I guess Dan wuld[sic] have filed[sic] out the forth[sic] panel this way:
Consistency in foreign policy is to America as Lady Gaga is to ________.
Here’s something I captured from Drudge’s homepage this week.
Outrageous, no? Look, if a few bottles of Bourbon are needed to get everyone relaxed and negotiating shit then I’ll gladly pay for it myself. Better than footing the trillion dollar bill for the foreign policy of a belligerent dry drunk.
