Surely it has to be satire.

I can't immagince why anyone would want to do that much effort in the name of satire (and I pretty much just looked at the home page). Is the Landover Baptist site that massive?

Not quite. However, jesus-is-savior seems to be just a bunch of links. Anything you click goes to a wholly different site: new tabs and all. It still is alot of work, if in the name of satire.

God in the garden with Adam and Eve
To those of us who have children in our lives. After creating heaven and earth, God created Adam and Eve. And the first thing he said was DON'T!

Don't what? Adam replied.

Don't eat the forbidden fruit. God said.

Forbidden fruit? We have forbidden fruit? Hey Eve, we have forbidden fruit!

No Way!

Yes way!

Do NOT eat the fruit! Said God.

Why?

Because I am your Father and I said so! God replied, wondering why He hadn't stopped creation after making the elephants.
A few minutes later, God saw His children having an apple break and He was ticked! Didn't I tell you not to eat the fruit? God asked.

Uh huh, Adam replied.

Then why did you? Said the Father.

I don't know, said Eve.

She started it! Adam said.

Did not!

Did too!

DID NOT!

Having had it with the two of them, God's punishment was that Adam and Eve should have children of their own. Thus the pattern was set and it has never changed.

I had the toughest time deciding whether this site is legit or some kind of parody.


There is no way that is parody.

Okay, I'll take that back. What I should have said is that there is no way that was intended as parody.

It's just so over the top fundy that it calls CS Lewis a satanic heretic, calls the pope the vicar of hell, lambasts the "new world order", raves against alcohol, disney, public schools. Goes without saying that it's antievolution as well.

That might make it unintended parody.

I found some related sites:
Challenge to David J. Stewart.
David J. Stewart Exposed!
David J. Stewart is NOT the way to Heaven!!!
David J. Stewart Indicted for Sex with Minor
NIV EXPOSED! (by David J. Stewart) (a youtube video, with links to many similar videos).

I concur that this is parody, though unintended parody.

One for the ages from American Idol
I don't watch American Idol, but I hear about it all the time, mostly about Simon and Paula and so forth. This isn't actually American Idol but Britains Got Talent, but anyway, I heard an indirect reference to this incredible and surprising performance by a Susan Boyle and so I looked it up. Maybe everyone has already heard about this, but it was news to me.

This doesn't really belong in humor, but it's pretty incredible and unexpected. Embedding is disabled for this video, but here's the link:

And in follow-up news, Eddison has just invented the light-bulb, Newton publishes his Third Law, and wheels apparently are better when they are round...

That was last year, buddy!
It was pretty hard to miss over on this side of the pond.

Here's her wiki page

And if you liked her, check out Paul Potts a contestant from the year before, kinda the same thing as Susan. His performance can also be found on Youtube.

Dont step in this!
A cowboy named Bud was overseeing his herd in a remote mountainous pasture in California when suddenly a brand-new BMW advanced toward him out of a cloud of dust.

The driver, a young man in a Brioni suit, Gucci shoes, RayBan sunglasses and YSL tie, leaned out the window and asked the cowboy, "If I tell you exactly how many cows and calves you have in your herd, will you give me a calf?"

Bud looks at the man, obviously a yuppie, then looks at his peacefully grazing herd and calmly answers, "Sure, why not?"

The yuppie parks his car, whips out his Dell notebook computer, connects it to his AT&T iPhone and surfs to a NASA page on the Internet, where he calls up a GPS satellite to get an exact fix on his location…which he then feeds to another NASA satellite that scans the area in an ultra-high-resolution photo.

The young man then opens the digital photo in Adobe Photoshop and exports it to an image processing facility in Hamburg , Germany .

Within seconds, he receives an email on his iPhone that the image has been processed and the data stored. He then accesses an MS-SQL database through an ODBC connected Excel spreadsheet with email on his Blackberry and, after a few minutes, receives a response.

Finally, he prints out a full-color, 150-page report on his hi-tech, miniaturized HP LaserJet printer, turns to the cowboy and says, "You have exactly 1,586 cows and calves."

"That's right. Well, I guess you can take one of my calves," says Bud.

He watches the young man select one of the animals and looks on with amusement as the young man tries to stuff it into the trunk of his car.
Then Bud says to the young man, "Hey, if I can tell you exactly what your business is, will you give me back my calf?"
The young man thinks about it for a second and then says, "Okay, why not?"

"You're a Congressman for the U.S. Government," says Bud.
"Wow! That's correct," says the yuppie Congressman, "but how did you guess that?"

"No guessing required," answered the cowboy. "You showed up here even though nobody called you; you want to get paid for an answer I already knew, to a question I never asked. You used millions of dollars worth of equipment trying to show me how much smarter than me you are; and you don't know a thing about how working people make a living - or about cows, for that matter. This is a herd of sheep...Now give me back my dog!
