Giving a New Meaning to the Term “Bombtrack”
In recent years, a new subculture has begun to use the medium of punk rock to share its views with like-minded music fans and the world at large. Anarchists? Well, if you paid any attention to punk rock over the last 25 years or so, you’d know that anarchists are already making ideological punk music. Luddites? Well, there is a sizeable acoustic punk scene, but they still use modern means of recording, distribution and conveyance to shows. Washed up, trashy, talentless twenty-something rehab urchins with astoundingly poor judgement? No, but good guess!
The subculture in question is (drumroll, please): “progressive Muslims” Read the rest of this entry »
Deviant wrote this for us, because he thinks about vaginas kind of alot.
Let me explain…
As a raised Catholic, my connection with the Virgin Mary is a doozy. In the Catholic faith the Virgin Mary is treated like a goddess, though the church would claim otherwise, calling her a mortal that rose to heaven is semantics.
In Catholicism, there were special prayers sent to the Virgin Mary that were on par with prayers you would send to Jesus (or baby jesus if you were feeling especially kawaii).
The Virgin Mary is a loving force to be reckoned with in Catholic dogma. It was an honor for latin mothers, aunts, and grandmothers to give their children symbols of Our Lady of Guadalupe, the Mexican version of the Virgin Mary. My mother gave me an Our Lady of Guadalupe medallion; which was slightly odd because she hates Mexicans, but I figured that her home country of Guatemala couldn’t afford a Virgin Mary of their own.

Pardonnez-moi, monsieur. Je ne l’ai pas fait exprès.
(Pardon me, sir. I did not do it on purpose.)

How I Learned To Stop Worrying and Love Religious Persecution
I suggest we start to get this idea of “religious persecution” as a bad thing out of our collective thoughts.
We hear all about how the pilgrims came over here because they were persecuted, but we all know deep down in our hearts that they kind of deserved it.
The pilgrims were assholes.
I think our society can afford to religiously persecute several fringe members of our society like the Mormons, the Scientologists, and ITT Tech graduates, and they should be persecuted just a tad bit. I’m not calling for mass genocide or anything barbaric like that, but the following news story of “persecution” I think is comparable to a light playful hazing: Read the rest of this entry »
Jesus Saves Guitar Picks 4 Pack @ Amazon.com
God: Hey, JC! Whadda you say we go down to Earth, spend some quality time?
JC: Um, no.
God: C’mon, it’ll be fun. We’ll go fishing for men.
JC: Yeah, that sounds great and all, but I gotta update my blog.
God: Jesus, son! You need to get a hobby!
JC: I have my blog, Dad. You just don’t understand my generation!
God: A real hobby! Maybe you could collect something.
JC: Yeah, sure. Whatever. Bring me a Fillet O’ Fish and some Dansani before you go, k?
And that, brothers and sisters, is how Jesus began saving guitar picks. At a current total of 4, it’s not much of a collection. It’s tragic really. With all the dexterity of a carpenter’s son, he’d be a great shredder, if it weren’t for those horrible hand injuries.
What do you get when an atheist, an agnostic, and a Christian start a lol site?
Finally, kids. A lolsite that appreciates my arts!
In the words of … uh, I’m not sure which one of them I was talking to…
It’s a team blog. There are three of us: an atheist, an agnostic, and a Christian. (The Christian started it.) The whole idea started out with a comment in someone else’s blog about something like “God helps those that helps themselves” and someone said “God’s not like some magic cookie, which is too bad, because hey: magic cookie!” Of course that led to, “Who eated my cookie?” and the very first post “God maked you a cookie, but he eated it.” After that, we all just went nuts with the theme and decided it really needed its own blog. That was … um … end of June this year. The site just recently started taking off as more people have come to find out about it.
It’s been hilarious — there are some submissions we’ve posted that were like “meh” and they’ve turned out to be hysterical to someone, and others that we died laughing at that others were like “funnay not found.”
Today marks Rosh Hashanah, New Years Day on the Hebrew calendar. It is a day of celebration and reflection. Being the only member of Ration Reality’s staff with any Jewish heritage (and who isn’t a screaming Mick), it’s my pleasure to wish you a Happy New Year, worldwide Jewry! Now this means that there’s just 3 more months to the real New Year!
In honor of this special holiday, Ration Reality is proud to offer a collection of news stories we’ve been saving with a decidedly Jewish flavor. Mazal Tov!! Read the rest of this entry »
