Re: Repeated ad nauseum

I think quoting satire as fact is its own category.

 

More amusing (to me) than this were the number of folks on Facebook who were up in arms about the swank new Planned Parenthood Abortionplex in Kansas.

 

I've never dug up the contemporaneous knicker twisting, but apparently a lot of folks took A Modest Proposal as a serious suggestion, due to it being written before smileys or the </s> tags were widely used.

Don't try to deny it bobstro.

 

North Korean Unicorn Lair exists. It's just a global conspiracy to hide it and not let other people take magical unicorn rides.

Anybody is free to ride the Unicorn. They just have to accept the North Korean walled garden in order to be able to do so! Trust us, though, it exists! :0
