Are you saying God is a Wuss?

March 30th, 2007

What is it about religious extremists that makes them think they have to punish perceived wrong-doers in the name of God?

This perplexes me because it defies their own logic: God is all-powerful (you could almost say “omnipotent”) yet according to the actions of religious extremists, SHe needs goons. But both of these cannot be true, they are logically incompatible, so either God is not all-powerful, or SHe doesn’t need goons. So religious extremists are actually committing blasphemy by punishing gays, Moslems, Americans (or gay, Moslem Americans – don’t tell me there aren’t any!), etc.

So if you’re a religious whack-job (come on, you know who you are) who likes to punish people in God’s name, think on that… you are declaring by your actions that God is unomnipotent and you are therefore a BLASPHEMER!

And you know what happens to blasphemers, don’t you? Yes, you do because you stay awake at night with one hand under the blankets thinking of new ways to make yourself feel big by meting out God’s justice.

Do unto yourself as you would have yourself do unto others.

And ting.

If time travel is theoretically possible, even if it hasn’t been invented yet, it’s already happening.

One More of Us, One Less of Them!

March 4th, 2007

So I was in Frank’s in Shrewsbury last night and the place was buzzing as it usually does on a Saturday night.

Now Frank’s is unusual in that there is never a queue for the Ladies’ while there is often a queue for the Gents’. This is because the Ladies’ is large enough to accomodate several ladies (I know because I peeked in when one lady left the door open just a little), while the Gents’ is designed to accommodate only one gent (in principle).

Anyway, I have a deep-felt conviction that real men do not queue for the toilet and on more than one occasion I have trundled down the steps in Frank’s only to see a queue of so-called men outside the Gents’. In such circumstances, I have had no choice but to trundle back upstairs and hold my waters, cheerfully and (I feel) helpfully informing the queue’s occupants of the questionable nature of their masculinity.

How? Why? Where? When?

March 1st, 2007

Can somebody pleeeeeeeeeeease take the How? Why? Where? When? advertisement off the TV before I put my foot through the screen!

I think it qualifies as the most irritating advertisement in the history of irritating advertisements.

What’s more, the ad is for the Kia cee’d. That’s right, someone in their marketing department thought it would be really clever to have no capital letter and a superfluous apostrophe in the name. Well, just in case that person is reading this: IT’S ABOUT AS CLEVER AS WRITING “NITE” INSTEAD OF “NIGHT”!

If anyone from Kia is reading this, please note that thanks to that ad, I will never buy one of your cars.
