About

IMAO (In My Arrogant Opinion) is a humorous blog started by me, Frank J., back on July 9th, 2002. It is a funny website that is mainly about politics because politics is funny. If you do not find this blog funny, then obviously you are reading it wrong because many other people find it funny. There may, in fact, be something wrong with you. You should have a doctor look at you to make sure it’s not fatal.

If you are not dying of a humor-inhibiting disease, then you should find much happiness from reading IMAO. A good place to start is the essay Nuke the Moon which is one of IMAO’s most popular pieces. Then you can check out what’s on the front page which is updated multiple times daily by me or the other IMAO bloggers. You can also have fun looking through the archives (listed on the right sidebar) or Google search (left sidebar) for a particular topic. There’s so much humor on IMAO that it seems extremely stupid to offer it all for free, but lucky for you we are very stupid.

Have fun!

    Hey Frank,

    My name is Adam Shepard and I wrote a book called Scratch Beginnings. I’ve been featured on The Today Show, CNN, Fox News, NPR, Christian Science Monitor, The New York Post…blah, blah, blah.

    Scratch Beginnings is my rebuttal to Nickel and Dimed by Barbara Ehrenreich, a well-crafted yet inherently flawed study of the American Dream. What I did was start with $25 and the clothes on my back in a randomly chosen city out of a hat to see if, in one year, I could have $2500, a car, and a furnished apartment.

    Although, I gotta tell ya, it isn’t all as though it appears on the cover.

    My book is being published on Oct. 14th by HarperCollins, and I’d be happy (and honored) if you’d like to do a review on your blog. It’s a very inspirational topic, sure, but even more of a controversial one that has been receiving a wide variety of praise and criticism from people all over.

    I have about 20 copies of the original self-published version sitting next to me, and I’ll send you a copy if you’d like.

    Cheers!

    Adam

    Hello Frank, I just found your site today. I love it, very funny stuff. I’ll give you a plug over on OldHippie.com.
    In one of the pictures on this page is a bumpersticker that says,”PitBulls for Palin”. If you had them in your store I’d buy a bunch. Again, great site brother. Cheers, Seadog

    I can’t tell you that I’m in love with you because I’m afraid of Sarah.
    But did you see this picture of the great O?
    http://www.weeklyworldnews.com/election-08/obama-nude/

    I would not ordinarily want to humiliate someone. But we are at war. Obama is a very great threat. And American Thinker’s 9/28 post about the O as a Narcisstic Personality Disorder is absolutely right.

    Given that, this photo/story will push him to (politically) self-destruct and that is what needs to Happen.

    He’s already been seen blending puppies. The world needs to know him posing.

    I should have made up a caption. Like

    Yeah but it’s cold in here.

    This seems right down your alley …

    Found this on Neo-Neocon’s blog.

    From The Onion:

    Extreme Weather Alert: Meteorologists Predict Intensely Brisk Autumn

    Experts advise that anyone venturing outdoors should be on
    the lookout for extremely crunchy leaves and winds as high as 12 mph.

    Love the site, but is it only open a couple hours a day?

    Why do I get errors 9 out of 10 times I try to come here?

    I still think this is a great site, despite not being able to leave comments.

  9. Elise says:

    My 19-year-old daughter was very naughty to tell me about this site because after I found it I stayed up till 2 a.m. reading various amusing pieces and posts.

  10. Aaron Horrocks says:

    Your 19 year old daughter sounds like a keeper!

    Thank you Jenny, I think I could have done with out that visual image but it brings a few absurd question to mind, ….. was the “Stallion” more popular in the saddle or on Brok back mountain?

    LOL

    Poor Jenny P, Haven’t you ever heard of “photoshopping” heads on different bodies? Poor poor dear.

    Thank you Sir, for this site, it’s a refreshing break from the garbage that’s out there. I found your link on Dr. Savage’s site. I will be buying one t-shirt per month and wearing them proudly whenever i must defiled myself by having to go to sanfransicko, to visit my folks. My Pops would have a good laugh, I am still working on my my Mama. It’s time to take back OUR country from the wack jobs and commies. And in my book President Ronald Reagan IS the best President I’ve seem in my life time. Keep up the good work, “God, Guns, and Guts” is what we need more of and not hippy-assed nonsense.

    Shepard, I didn’t know you’re a IMAO reader. I’m one of Geraghty’s engineering students; graduated last year. Pretty much everyone there think’s Obama’s some kind of saint.

  17. MikeLL says:

    Frank,

    I have nothing to say to you . . . you monkey hater, you.

  18. MikeLL says:

    Hey! I came here to the “about” section to find out what the rules and regulations are for IMAO.

    I mean, if I say $&*@, will I get banned? Or something worse? Like, turned into a robotic monkey or something?

    Instead, all I find is a joke about how I need to see a doctor (as if I was insane or something) and an award granted to this site by Helen Thomas (talk about insane).

    I guess there are no rules here. . .

    By the way, have you seen “Ed” anywhere around here? I’ve been looking for him. Need to give him a piece of my mind!

  19. FreemonSandlewould says:

    ever consider the earth shattering idea that you may not be funny?

  20. FredTownWard says:

    Have you ever considered making postcards featuring some of your material that is well suited to the format? Two that I think would work well are your Top 10 U.S. Military Slogans and Top 10 U.N. Slogans.

    I already wear the shirts; I’d love to mail the postcards.

    Hi Frank,

    The link is to a song I wrote and put on video. Serious and funny at the same time? What a combination. I’d love to see it linked on your site. The words are below.

    Thanks,

    Hey Mr. President ©2009

    written by R.L. Carter

    Verse

    Hey Mr. President

    Pelosi, Reid and Frank

    You’ve mortgaged all our futures

    Buying houses, cars, and banks

    You ignore the Bill of Rights

    While Congress claps and cheers

    It’s your abuse of power

    The Founding Fathers feared

    For us who dare to dream

    Don’t tax away our reason

    If business doesn’t prosper

    Than neither does this nation

    You promised hope and change

    But put us hopelessly in debt

    Brought us bigger government

    You can bet we won’t forget

    Chorus

    Government’s like a fire

    And can lead us to disaster

    It’s a dangerous servant

    And a fearful master

    So please Mr. President

    Listen to their wisdom

    From Washington and Jefferson

    Lincoln down to Reagan

    Verse

    Hey Mr. President

    The press is in your hand

    They love your fancy footwork

    Now they’re your biggest fans

    When you speak they listen

    Hang on your every word

    You’ve become their super hero

    While they’ve become absurd

    Your programs make me dizzy

    As you move at lightening speed

    With Congress in your pocket

    They don’t even stop to read

    Give me the bill I want

    Don’t let this moment pass

    My vision’s too important

    And my wisdom’s unsurpassed

    Chorus

    Government’s like a fire

    And can lead us to disaster

    It’s a dangerous servant

    And a fearful master

    So please Mr. President

    Listen to their wisdom

    From Washington and Jefferson

    Lincoln down to Reagan

    Verse

    Hey Mr. President

    You took a moral stand

    Gave rights to our enemies

    Yet on the other hand

    The unborn cry for mercy

    But the calls to tough for you

    It’s above your pay grade

    Sorry, but it’s true

    You bowed our nation down

    Like a subject to a king

    And while others sacrifice

    You apologize for nothing

    You’re worried if they like us

    Why is it you don’t see

    That this nation under God

    Is where they want to be

    Chorus

    Government’s like a fire

    And can lead us to disaster

    It’s a dangerous servant

    And a fearful master

    So please Mr. President

    Listen to their wisdom

    From Washington and Jefferson

    Lincoln down to Reagan

    Chorus

    Government’s like a fire

    And can lead us to disaster

    It’s a dangerous servant

    And a fearful master

    So please Mr. President

    Listen to their wisdom

    From Washington and Jefferson

    Lincoln down to Reagan

    On the same day America bombed the Moon, the American president was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. The policies advocated on this blog have been validated.
