  1. My God, man, I don’t know where you find this stuff, but I always look forward to it. I know, there’s something wrong with me. Must have been my strict Catholic childhood.

  2. Alex Autin says:

    I don’t even know where to start. I should be use to this by now, but each time I come back here, I mean EVERY FREAKING TIME, I’m amazed…and yeah, I also feel I need a shower afterwards.
    Hilarious, Smak. From Hell’s Heart, I stab at thee….

    • Smaktakula says:

      Thanks for the kind words, the mention today and for making science interesting.

      But science is interesting in and of itself!

      Oh come on, now–you don’t really expect me to believe that, do you?

  3. Carrie Rubin says:

    “A Dog Called Irony”—I can’t even begin to articulate how badly I feel for laughing at that.

  4. tomsimard says:

    Passing out free joints can only help Amtrak. Of course, it would help the airlines as well, but they’re too busy strip searching passengers to realize it.

  5. Bumba says:

    Some real funny ones today. Be careful, though. I thought one or two of them were in good taste.

  6. calahan says:

    Congratulations on besting your bed wetting problem, man. That’s fantastic! Was it relegated to your bed or was it just anytime you passed a bed?

  7. workspousestory says:

    Accused Child Foot Licker Blames President Obama – this one is just… pure gold.
    My goodness.

  8. whiteladyinthehood says:

    Oh my gosh! I actually heard of the preacher who kicks folks before I read it here! (who would have believed that, not I)

  9. Elliot says:

    I like the “woman who rescued animals killed by dog” the best. Although it’s not really funny.

    The penis snake one is also funny (did you see this on “why evolution is true”).

  10. Two questions: Was the quadriplegic swimmer’s name “Bob?” and is there any conceivable reason why anyone would want to bleach their One Brown Eye?

  11. El Guapo says:

    Dude, I was hating on Andorra months ago. You aren’t hip enough to hold my free-trade-organic-picked-by-virgin-Mets-fans-Andelusian-spice-infused-herbal-fizzless-soda.

  12. Anastasia says:

    So did Bob make it across Bering, or is he adrift?
