You should take a lesson from the late George Carlin

I can't see YouTube at work but I'd have to answer, "Yes, we are doomed".

My God, you're just like the MC commercial--priceless. Are you sure you're not a fictional character IRL? Not one, of course, by Douglas Adams, as a Python would have had very little use for such a character (excepting of course a Cleese character who showed up in the village occasionally), but rather a character by Al Capp?

He didn't hate God and Christians, he was a catholic that hated organized religion. I consider myself a Christian, and so does Jesus(that of course is a long complicated subject) but organized religion has f'd up waaaay to much to be considered hallowed. His take on gov't, society, and the mutual dislike of cultures misguided by selfish, self absorbed obsessions was more often than not, right on point. Besides a lot of his shit was funny.

Too bad CW split, I wanted to ask how he felt about John Cleese wanting to volunteer for Barry Hussein Obama. He could rewrite the dead parrot sketch for what 'll happen when liberals get control of congress and THE Obamessiah becomes President.

OK, let's step through it slowly. I assume you understand the MC reference, as it's on the TeeVee. So, we'll go to the Douglas Adams reference. Zafod's screen name is derived (albeit spelled differently) from Adams' Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Hitchhiker's_Guide_to_the_Galaxy). Adams' wrote for Monty Python. John Cleese, a member of Monty Python, often played a character called the "Village Idiot." Al Capp wrote and drew Li'l Abner (http://www.lil-abner.com/).

See, it's not so hard. However, like you apparently, I think pictures help as well...

I'm back. I had seen a reference to that, but had not read the details. I really don't care much about comedians', or actors' in general, for that matter, political affiliations. Cleese is one of the most brilliant comedians of my generation, along with Chevy Chase, Steve Martin, and Rick Moranis. Given the irreverant content of Python, SNL, and Second City, it's not surprising that many of their members are liberals. Comedy, as a general rule, is anti-establishment in its nature.

Ah, so it's like a swimming pool. Please, explain to me how it works. It might be fun, although being unfamiliar with it and its rules, I might be at a disadvantage.

Possibly. I would still like to know the rules, although from the name and the inferences in this thread, it seems sort of confrontational. You seem really experienced in it so I really wouldn't necessarily want to confront you there without some more knowledge of it. Perhaps, if the archives ever come back, I can look up some of the threads.
