Random Thoughts: Godzilla, Trigger Warnings, and Rape Culture

Posted on May 20, 2014 9:00 am

A Hollywood production of Godzilla seems like it was an easy way to make tons of box office money. Why hadn’t anyone thought of that before?

You should tax what you want less of. Tax whining.

You should never construe my attacks on a politician as meaning his or her opponent isn’t awful as well.

My father died from a trigger warning, so please don’t mention them around me.

The gun I bought came with a trigger warning. “WARNING: Contains trigger.”

No one is talking about only allowing government-approved speech; we’re talking about tolerance-approved speech. Entirely different.

The whole point of establishment picks are to find candidates who can lose honorably without embarrassing us.

It makes me feel good inside that I’m apparently better informed about breaking events than the president.

I was unaware we have a useless president until I saw about it in news reports.

Shows us on the doll where Paul Ryan touched your ideology.

A law that should make everyone happy: A ban on Democrats owning guns.

As opposed to what? Air buffalo? Oh, I guess that’s where buffalo wings come from.

Rape culture? I didn’t know rape made cultural contributions. I assume it’s things like Nickelback and Axe body spray.

    some definitions of culture:

    7. The breeding of animals or growing of plants, especially to produce improved stock.
    8. Biology

    Tax taxes!

  4. Jimmy says:

    @3: DamnCat: Illogical. That would result in a recursive loop. You would need a “tax loophole” to get out of it.

  5. DamnCat says:

    Tax Jimmy!

    Tax political correctness

    Tax people every time they are offended

    Jimmy, your reply should be…tax tuna!

    Tax the taxman.

    Little Frankie is apparently as informed about breaking events as the man pretending to be President is.

  10. Jimmy says:

    @7 zzyzx: I thought about that and had even typed it. But then, I didn’t want to send the Cat into non-ballistic motion (as Cat is known to do), so I erased it.

    WARNING: Article mentions Lone Ranger’s horse.

  12. Harvey says:

    @11 Les – Wait… that’s a Silver Warning… I think you meant Roy Rogers’ horse.

    Either that or you’re trying to warn us about movies with Ron Silver in them:

  13. Les says:

    Doh! Glucose deprived brain. And for some reason I always get Clayton Moore confused with Dennis Moore.

  14. Les says:

    Good Lord, I’m going back to bed. Wrong Python link. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KbtVaTWs6II&feature=youtu.be&t=3m9s

  15. Harvey says:

    @14 Les – So… that would be a Concord Warning?

  16. Basil says:

    Victor? Oh, that’s his nephew’s horse. Never mind.

  17. Les says:

    Let that be a warning to you all.

  18. J.M. Heinrichs says:

    1. Your taxes are already being taxed. Just read the regs.
    2. To dress properly, ‘Buffalo Wear’: http://airwear.bigcartel.com

    Cheers

    I went to a barbecue at Roy Rogers house once. The burgers came with a Trigger warning…
