Now THAT’s an election debate we could all get into!
We love Fox News because it provides so much fuel for our satire. We were planning to write a post about any number of Draconian points on which the ill-informed conservative crowd stand, but we grew weary with all the seriousness.
Last night, we watched the Family Guy “German Guy” episode and thought it might be a nice gesture to mock both the Nazis and the pundits of Fox News at the same time. Since calling a political figure a Nazi is a seriously harsh insult (unless the individual actually self-identifies as a fascist), we figured we ought to go with exactly that. It’s unlikely that the conservative columnists and celebrities are actually Nazis but the possibility still exists and it makes for convenient satire.
The scene where Chris goes into Lt. Franz Schlechtnacht’s Nazi shrine room created a nice backdrop for this post. We scoured the web for images of Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Ann Coulter, Dick Cheny, and Mel Gibson since they had all been animated for the show in previous episodes and we felt they were deserving of our criticism. So, here you go.
Sponsored with gusto by Fox News.
Can’t get enough poking fun at Nazis? Give our Hogan’s Heroes post a shot.
NOTE to our conservative readers: You are welcome to attack the clearly cynical nature of this post but keep in mind that this blog is mostly about humor so if you can’t take an incendiary joke, go readthis instead.
Have you missed us? Yeah, us neither. But we’re back anyway. Been busy and all that what-not.
The political stew is getting increasingly bubbly and is ready to boil over. With big elections coming up, especially because we’re in a presidential election year, we will be inundated with platforms and positions and posturing and pundits and platitudes and periwinkle pantsuits. We will hear talk of issues ranging far and wide from the vast array of parties that have real impact on our country’s future. Who can choose between so many different options under consideration on the most important issues facing our nation. What a shame that we simply don’t have two to choose from. If only we had just two political parties with any real influence. If only most issues could be boiled down to “for” and “against.” Ah, if only …
Anyway, having just gotten back from Comic-Con just a few weeks ago, all this politicking reminded us that we forgot to post some additional cosplay chicanery. Ann Coulter showed up on Sunday to do a little glad-handing, baby-kissing (read: blood-sucking), and stumping for Rick Perry whom she is hoping will jump back into the race and take on milquetoast Mitt Romney. Ann’s got the pulse of average Comic-Con attendee well in hand. She showed up as Catwoman to ensure she would get their attention. Sarah Palin had also shown up to do the same. There was an inevitable encounter and a cat-fight broke out (heh, heh, you like that?). Any guess as to who won? We sure do wish we had it on video, but all we managed to capture was the moment before Sarah attacked Ann. Here you go.
To make sure things were fair and balanced, President Obama quickly rushed his own representative to San Diego. None of the interns were willing to don a sexy outfit and Hillary Clinton was the only one to throw her hat in the ring, so, reluctantly, the Commander-in-Chief sent his envoy to the greatest show on earth. Ol’ Hills chose to come as Harley Quinn. Not exactly a success.

We were feeling musical tonight and since we haven’t done one of these in a while, here’s a new Firewater and Chaser combo. Within every genre of pop music, there is a mountain of poo with the occasional gem hidden in the mess. Such it is with death metal. There are soooooooo many bands that […]
It’s been a while. Time for another liquid burner and chaser. First up…Filter. Formed in 1995. Not really big fans. However, the first album, Short Bus, has an aggressive song that will be today’s eye-melter. The reason we like this song is that it reminds us of an angry day when we were driving too fast down […]
It’s been a while since we did one of these, so it’s time for another loud and aggressive song followed by a mellow and soft ditty. Up first, Black Sabbath. Yes, we’ve done Sabbath before but besides liking BS (our blog is full of it), we’re pulling from a different iteration of the band. As […]
Today’s hard swill and chaser combo brings us two versions of “Hafanana.” Boney NEM is up first. Бони НЕМ (Boney NEM) rocks this catchy little ditty with their Russian metal bravado. Who are we to judge their song choice? Keep in mind that these are the same blokes that covered “Strangers in the Night.” Why […]
Time for another entry in our rot gut & chaser thingy. Today we’re thinking about “Sober” by Tool. Why we likey? It’s a gloriously wrenching song with bleak lyrics sung in soul-bottom anguish. Yes, ultimately it’s a pop song (it went all the way to “13” on the 1994 U.S. pop charts) but pop culture […]
We’ve done a lot of James Bond posts, particularly on the movies. One film we’ve neglected to discuss thus far, however, was 1983’s Never Say Never Again. There are (currently) 23 movies officially sanctioned by the original and subsequently official James Bond franchise. However, there have been two other films and one TV show that also have […]
… and here are the ones that didn’t make the cut. Following up on Top 10 James Bond Movie Villains, these are the villains that we would have like to include, but just couldn’t justify doing so given our criteria. Nonetheless, they deserve some accolades by the merits that they do have. So: 1. Grant: […]
The fact that we are enjoying the 50th year of James Bond movies what with all the releases of this and that, caused us to reflect on the James Bond movie franchise again after so many months since our last posts. On our way home from work, we were quoting some of our favorite Bond […]
If you’ve read any of our other James Bond posts, you’ll know that we fall into that camp of fans that actually like George Lazenby and love OHMSS (On Her Majesty’s Secret Service). This piece by LIFE is an interesting look behind the scenes. Looking at the pool of candidates, we have to agree with the […]
It’s out! The first trailer for the 23rd outing in the James Bond franchise: Skyfall. Release date in the US is November 9, 2012. HERE ARE SOME ADDITIONAL IMAGES FROM THE MOVIE AND HERE IS THE OFFICIAL POSTER We posted pictures and information on Skyfall and Sam Mendes, the director, in a previous post: Skyfall […]
