Sinclair Lewis obviously never met sweet, sweet Sarah Palin


Graphic of Sarah Palin wrapped in an American Flag holding a cross reads, “When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.” 
–Sinclair Lewis, 1835

This is obviously a fake or a Poe.

The secret of enjoying good wine


The secret of enjoying good wine: 1. open the bottle to allow it to breathe. 2. If it does not look like it’s breathing, give it mouth to mouth.

Despite being virtually landlocked, Pennsylvania manages to float out to the Seas of Insanity


Lot and his Daughters (1616 painting by Hendri...

The story of Pennsylvania collectively signing off on Insanity by declaring 2012 the “Year of the Bible” has been circulating.

Here’s one commentary that uses lots of Founding Father quotes to make a case against the “Year of the Bible” resolution.

I thought the story of Lot’s daughters getting him drunk and fucking him was enough to get “The Year of the Bible” passed ASAP.

I mean, gosh, I heard there were some backasswards Pennsylvanians who wanted to sleep with their parents, but to take it this far. Seriously?

I don’t want to see the results, but I hope someone is there with a camera when those pregnant women who don’t comply with the Year of the Bible are taken out and ripped open by swords.

Or maybe they’ll take all the non-believers and help them get to hell early. That’ll be soooooooooo cool.

Jesus will surely bring his sword along for the festivities!

Have fun rocking out on the Seas of Insanity, Pennsylvania!

Send us a postcard or tap out a message in morse code. It’ll feel so Biblical, because nobody does that anymore either.

Thanks, Bill!

Petition to #Apple: Protect Workers Making iPhones in Chinese Factories


Here at Le Café Witteveen, we’ve been following some of the stories surrounding the controversy that Apple uses Asian manufacturers to make their products (see here and here).

Regular reader and blogger Biodork sent me a petition to Apple this morning that you can sign here.

Here’s a snip:

Here’s the thing: you’re Apple. You’re supposed to think different. I want to continue to use and love the products you make, because they’re changing the world, and have already changed my life. But I also want to know that when I buy products from you, it’s not at the cost of horrible human suffering.

And later:

Your own ads say that “the people who think they are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

Please get to it.

Hear hear.

Thanks, Brianne!

What TYWKIWDBI is posting


Lately, I can’t get enough of the blog TYWKIWDBI, and if I thought it was acceptable blogger etiquette to just repost EVERYTHING the Minnesotastan  posts, I would.

But I can’t. Or shouldn’t rather.

However, I love to send you toward great things found on the Internets. There are a couple of things I wanted to link to so that you would know which posts I think are way worth it.

This one on a saber-toothed marsupial-type animal is nothing short of awe-inspiring.

This post talking about hackers getting ahold of your computer camera and watching you masturbate is super disturbing and needs to get out.

And finally, this oneon a caterpillar that evolved to look like a snake …. holy shit! How awesome is that! Picture below.
