This week’s uncaptioned picture for you to play with:

SO… who gets the Obscure Reference of the Week Award (i.e. the coveted Obscury)?:

Larsinkima or Ryan?


PRODUCTION NOTES:
#1: When creating lolterizt! pictures, please caption with either black or white text, as colors like red and yellow tend to blur badly when I compress the images.

#2: Standard image size for these posts is 350px wide by whatever high. If you can have your images 350px wide before you caption them, I won’t end up shrinking your captions into illegibility when I re-size the images.

MAKE YOUR OWN: The free lolbuilder from I Can Has Cheezburger.

STYLE NOTE: Short captions are usually better. Your goal is 10 words or less, with humor value tending to increase exponentially as the number of words approaches 1.

HAT TIP: Brian of Snapped Shot‘s magnificent EvilFeed – the world’s best source for ripe-for-captioning terrorist photos.

Send your submissions to lolterizt@gmail.com and – if they aren’t obscene (IMAO is a PG-13 site) and don’t suck too terribly bad – I’ll post them for you. Remember to include your name (and blog URL, if applicable) so I know who to thank.

Our Elected Officials Need Remedial Freedom Courses

So we have Chicago schools banning homemade lunches so the government can control what nutrition children are getting, and the Boston mayor has banned sugary drinks from public property. And then you have those trans-fats, salt, and Happy Meals bans, and you just have to conclude that a certain segment of the left have completely given up on the concept of freedom. I mean, they may think freedom is okay and stuff, but just look at all the great benefits we can get from controlling what people can and can’t do!

We really need someone to go to these people and say, “I’m afraid you and America just aren’t working out. I just think we’re not compatible.” We can have lots of debates on a different issues, but when people don’t even get the concept of freedom at all, it’s kind of pointless. Maybe it’s a failure of schools. Who knows what they’re teaching there now, but when you see elected representatives throwing fits over not being able to spend billions of other people’s dollars willy nillly, obviously schools aren’t teaching the really important things like the concept of freedom and how people’s property is their own. In the least, we need like a remedial freedom course for people to take — especially elected officials — and if you’re unable to pass it, we’ll find you a new country that’s a better fit.

Now we just have to come up with some good questions for our remedial freedom test. Here are some examples:

Q. You have one apple, Bob has ten apples. How many apples of his are you allowed to confiscate?

Q. You think what someone is eating is unhealthy. Do you:
A. Inform them of your opinion, but take no other action.
B. Call the police.

Q. The Constitution…
A. …is always binding to protect people from government encroachment.
B. …doesn’t apply if you think the law you are passing is a really really good idea.

Q. Private industry…
A. …is the best way to go in almost all situations.
B. …should only be used as a last resort.

Q. Freedom…
A. …is for everyone.
B. …is not for people I’m really sure I’m smarter than.

Again, math, science, and history are secondary to understanding freedom. When people don’t understand this stuff, that’s when the country really gets into trouble.

New Printing of Nuke the Moon Shirt

If you want a Nuke the Moon shirt, here is your one chance:

ThoseShirts.com is now taking orders, and based on how many orders they get over the next week they’ll do a single printing. And that’s it. These aren’t CafePress on demand shirts; these are nice silk-screened shirts that have to be ordered in bulk well ahead of time, so ThoseShirts.com doesn’t want to order too many and be out a bunch of money. So order one now because it could be your last chance since I could quit blogging any day. Plus, a portion of the sale of each shirt goes towards making Buttercup happy.

I like being happy!

Did you know babies are expensive? Since people have them all the time, I assumed the opposite.

Anyway, if for some strange reason you’re reading this and don’t know the importance of nuking the moon, go read this now.

So, order a Nuke the Moon shirt today, or forever hold your peace.
