Inappropriate: Illustrated

[High Praise! to seanmahair]

Seanmahair emailed me about her… displeasure… at the fact that Obama concluded his speech to a Planned Parenthood audience with the words “God bless“.

Having obama say “God bless” is like having Hugh Hefner say, “Abstinence is always the best policy.”

Which god is it he’s giving blessings from?, Moloch or Mithras or Baal or Allah or a cadre of other blood thirsty characters? It sure isn’t the God of the Bible because it is spelled out quite clearly that human sacrifice is an evil practice.

Well said.

Although my simile is “saying ‘God Bless’ at a Planned Parenthood meeting is like Hitler saying ‘Mazel tov!’ at a Bar Mitzvah.

Or possibly like Carpenter cursing libertarians in the comments at IMAO.

If you’ve got a similie for Obama saying “God Bless” at a Planned Parenthood meeting, leave it in the comments.

Apparently Large Sums of Undeserved Money Are Halal

McDonald’s paid a $700,000 settlement to a Muslim man who complained the chicken sandwiches didn’t meet Islamic standards.

Should’ve settled by just giving him a menu to throw stones at.

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


Kris for his mastery of Latin animal names.


PRODUCTION NOTES:
#1: When creating lolbama! 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.

IMAGE SOURCES: Lots of great Obama pics to be found at the White House Flickr page.

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.

It’s Really the Best Way to Control Any Problem, Ya Know

In Chicago, a sinkhole on the Southeast Side caused by a leaky water main swallowed three cars.

The obvious solution: a new law placing vehicle-capacity limits on sinkholes.
