This is the worst Metatalk post ever and the worst Metafilter deleted post ever. You should feel bad about yourself. Also, please contact the creator of that website and tell them they should also feel bad about themselves. Then get in touch with both Mr. Obama and Mr. McCain and tell them that they are bad and should feel bad.

So, George Bush is addressing reporters in Beijing before the opening ceremonies of the Olympics. He looks out over the audience, glances at his prepared notes, and begins: "Ooo, Ooo, Ooo, Ooo, Ooo." An uncomfortable silence follows until an aide leans over and whispers in his ear: "Um, Mr. President, that's the Olympics logo. Your speech is underneath."

Sometimes, when I’m in a sort of hypnagogic state between wake and sleep, I make up little science fiction stories in my head that don’t necessarily turn out to be that great an idea. Like this morning I was thinking of some kind of story about someone investigating the ruins of a post-war nazi outpost in the rainforests of brazil, where some kind of effort to breed a super-Hitler was going on – one who would be genetically perfect and have telepathically enhanced powers of persuasion. This would be going on against the background of a presidential election back in the US, where a charismatic leader who came out of nowhere and who is basically Barack Obama is leading the polls… yadda yadda yadda… at the last minute the researcher figures out that the reborn super Hitler has been spirited away to America in some kind of Manchunian candidate type deal, and right at the end BARACK OBAMA WINS THE ELECTION AND IS HITLER!

I did say that they often turn out to be not that great of an idea…

I remember the first time I heard that phrase. I was on a camping trip with my family and my father excused himself from the fireside saying "I gotta go see a man about a horse."

Do you realize how awesome that was? He was going to go get a horse for us! To get a horse ready to ride around the next day since we'd spent that whole stupid first day hiking around on stupid trails with our stupid feet hurting all the time. A horse was going to make that National Park fun!

He did not go see a man about a horse.

I had it in my head that the "Fuck the World" interpreters were remembering that 1994 movie about the kid who gets taken hostage in a convenience store and espouses his Gen X philosophy to the cameras. Turns out that was actually SFW. But the crazy thing is that there was a 1994 movie called FTW! I don't know if I actually conflated the two in my head back in the day, or it's just a strange coincidence, but from now on I'm going to read it as Frank T.

After I retired, I went to the Social Security office to apply for benefits. The woman behind the counter asked me for my driver's license to verify my age. I looked in my pockets and realized I had left my wallet at home. I told the woman I was very sorry, but I'd have to go home and come back later.

The woman said, "Unbutton your shirt."

So I opened my shirt revealing my curly silver hair. She said, "That silver hair on your chest is proof enough for me," and she processed my Social Security application.

When I got home, I excitedly told my girlfriend about my experience at the Social Security office. She said, "You should have dropped your pants. You might have gotten disability, too."

Just wanted to check in and let y'all know that I just got a letter from a good friend who's suddenly concerned that Obama is the Anti-Christ due to his tour of the world and popularity there. He was very serious and very concerned.

I don't have anyone who could appreciate this tidbit, so I'll tell you guys.

That's what the longboat was for! Right, longboaters?

If only we knew whose longboat it was.

Cool! I take it, then, that all the fundies will be voting for him come November? After all, what better way to speed the advance of the Apocalypse than to elect The Beast himself as leader of the free world?

If I wasn't at work, I'd photoshop up a Shelly Longboat right now just for kicks.

I think it's pretty obvious that Bush is the Anti-Christ.

The thing is, Little River Band's best song is "Lonesome Loser", without a doubt. But their highest charting number was "Reminiscing", which peaked at #3. Life just isn't fair, that's why.

Not quite. When you see what the American imperial cult has done with him, it becomes evident that Christ is, in fact, the Anti-Christ.

Bush is just a low-rent, corporate Constantine.

I think it'd be pretty sweet if it turned out that Christ was also the Anti-Christ.

Judas was the real Son of God / Christ, and sacrificed his life and became a historical pariah to prevent Jesus Anti-Christ from completely fulfilling his plan.

If Christ actually repels himself, we might finally have the basis for an honest-to-God perpetual motion machine.

I decided back in high school that I was the Neutral-Christ. It's all shades of grey with me. I mean, I'm black AND white. No good and evil, no light and dark. I'm here to bring you all into the shade.

Follow me, and we'll all be cool. Do-gooding is just too much work; and villainy is even worse. Let's just let each other be, share some tunes, everybody brings some food and something to drink; we'll hang out by the pool and it'll be chill. Just be aware of yourself, and try to minimize the burden you place on others. The only rule is be cool. If you're not cool, that's not cool. Dig?

Holy crap, Eideteker is The Dude.

Or possibly Bob. I'm not clear on this yet.

I'm not even joking when I say I had a Church of Bob in high school. Members of the CoB believed in many deities, but also that those many deities were really just facets of the One True Bob. We were monopolytheists.

I think if Obama was really the anti-Christ, he wouldn't have written God this as much as, maybe this.
