The Daily Show allegedly wrote:"It's a Wonderful Life" - a movie about an irresponsible banker who gives loans without proper security, almost goes bankrupt and threatens to ruin the town, before being bailed out by public generosity.
Happy Monkey one and all!

Ahhhhhhhh I wrote that joke two weeks ago! I was trying to link it to the fact that the movie doesn't mention Christ and tie it all together into a liberal war on christmas conspiracy letter to the editor. I even told my Mom about it and she cracked up. Then a few days later I see John Hodgeman do it on TDS. Oh well, great minds and all that jazz.

(I only got the idea after Norm from Cheers mentioned that the movie was about a bank bailout).

The Gospel of the Tea Party

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. These were the kind of people that God believed very much should have the right bear arms. Because things that happened in tribal myths 2000 years ago are directly related to use of hollow-point bullets.

Story 1 and Story 2.

One of those is from a national newspaper, the other is from a well known satire site. Can you spot which one is more believable? :haha:

Trick question, they're both well known satires of real news.

I think there is some sort of corollary of Poe's Law in there somewhere: when you can no longer tell the difference between the real coverage and the satirical coverage, then the subject of the story has reached such a level of extremism that it can no longer be taken seriously.
