George Bush Hates Elves

July 10th, 2008 by Michiel

I’m not sure how many people caught this story last week, but there is a 50/50 chance the North Pole will melt away and be ice free by September.

Oh, sure, the ice will come back in the winter, but still, if this does not tell you global warming is happening, I am not sure what will.

But, this is not an eco-rant, so if you are a right wing ass hat that does not believe in global warming, I’m not going to bust your balls about polar bears or rising ocean levels or any of that. No, I am going to find a new way to convince you that this is a serious issue that needs to be addressed, and it has to do with your children.

And before you think you know where I am going, I want to tell you that this is not one of those, “what kind of world do you want to leave your children” things, either.

The reason you need to acknowledge global warming and help the rest of us take action to reverse it is… what are you going to tell your children when they ask where Santa Claus lives?

You won’t be able to tell them he lives at the North Pole anymore, because the ice that Santa’s workshop is built on won’t be there, thus his whole workshop will sink into the ocean.

Are you going to tell them about the great evacuation of the elves when the ocean overtook the workshop?

Are you going to tell them about the elves that couldn’t get out and ended up drowning because not enough boats were available for all of them?

Where are you going to tell them that Santa and the elves relocated to? Will you tell them about how many of them are living with relatives in various cities and countries around the world, and how some of the elves are now homeless?

Will you tell your kids about how the governments of the world failed to stop the North Pole from melting by ignoring global warming, and how they responded to slowly to evacuate and/or rescue the elves when the North Pole ice cap disappeared?

And how will you explain that not all of the elves were able to get their old jobs back, because Santa is now outsourcing, and all the toys are now made in Santa’s new workshop by a magickal people called the Chinese?

But then again, if you are willing to lie about a fat man that delivers toys to all the children in the world, in one night, by means of flying reindeer, then I guess you will have no problems lying to your kids about the North Pole still being there too.

The only problem is, one day your kids will learn that there is no Santa, and there is no Easter Bunny or Tooth Fairy either. They will learn that there is no longer a North Pole. Then they will wonder what else you lied about, and may even begin to question other things you taught them, like whether there is a god, or that sex is best saved for marriage, or that homosexuality is wrong.

But it is a slippery slope, eventually they won’t even believe you about things like looking both ways before crossing the street, and then your kids end up getting run over by a bus or something.

So, if you don’t want your kids to get hit by buses and be godless homosexuals having sex outside of marriage, perhaps you should recognize that global warming is a problem and try to help us reverse it.

Save an elf. Stop driving S.U.V.s.

    See now why do I never see this kind of brilliant logic in the senate?


    Snyarhedir reply on February 27th, 2011 12:47 am:

    Because they take things too seriously.


  2. Mike Says:

    OMG!! Dead homeless elves. Where was FEMA this time? Did George even do a fly over. There wasn’t even a football stadium for them to go to. Is this another infrastructure problem created by Tax rebates in place of creating jobs?

    OMG!! Now what do we do about this influx of elves crossing our borders and draining our social services?

    George Bush not only hates elves, he hates all of us


    Stickfodder reply on July 10th, 2008 10:00 am:

    He doesn’t hate anybody he’s too stupid to understand the concept of hatred. And as for where he was this time he was probably distracted by something shiny. And as for the elves just reference my post below.


    Snyarhedir reply on February 27th, 2011 12:49 am:

    He is not stupid, only headstrong. If he were truly a total idiot, how did he get elected in the first place? On second thought, do not answer that question.


  3. Stickfodder Says:

    Silly Michiel Santa lives on the other side of the moon and he uses a transporter to send the toys to earth. And contrary to popular belief he doesn’t send toys to every child on earth who’ve been good only children in families who celebrate Christmas who aren’t poor. And time zones blah blah blah.
    Oh and he doesn’t employ Elf’s anymore they formed a union in the mid 90’s and he slaughtered them. And than adopted a bunch of Chinese children who he gave a “special” potion that keeps them children forever.


  4. bindoverbindo Says:

    It’s a hard market, really. People get trapped in a lot of cases, and can’t get rid of their old trucks for newer, more fuel-efficient cars. I’ve taken up biking, but I wince every time I start up my v-8. This country needs help to get off their SUV/high horse.


  5. Joe McCarthy Says:

    And now for the right wing ass hat response:

    The US did nothing to stop global warming and save the elves in the north pole because…Santa is a Communist.

    The clues are obvious. The man wears all red. He’s trying to eliminate religion by secularizing Christmas. He’s gives away free gifts instead of supporting our capitalism-driven economy by making us buy our own.

    I mean, really, “He sees you when you’re sleeping; He knows when you’re awake; He knows if you’ve been bad or good”? Big brother anyone?

    So yes, Santa did outsource to China, because China is, survey says…Communist.

    However, Chairman Klaus is not without any redeeming qualities. He did in fact save the elves when the North Pole disappeared. How, you ask? Did you ever wonder what happened to all the nuclear submarines the Soviet Union used to have before it was conquered by good ol’ Reaganomics? Given to Comrade Kringle. The elves have been living in them in secret for years.

    Just how were we tipped onto this? Our man on the scene, Senator Ted Stevens of Alaska started referring to things being “more like a series of tubes”.

    There has been some unsubstantiated intelligence pointing to the fact that since they now are not making toys and are surrounded by a nuclear arsenal, the elves might just be producing WMDs.

    Therefore, we need to allow global warming to occur…in the name of the Global War on Terror.

    Michiel reply on July 11th, 2008 5:31 am:

    Now it all makes sense.

    Although since you mentioned him being obviously communist by wearing all red, it makes me realize that all the right wingers, republicans and conservatives are also communist since they are all on the red side of the red/blue divide in this country. Further proof that it is unamerican to be conservative/republican.

    Joe McCarthy reply on July 11th, 2008 5:43 am:

    Nonsense. Who defined Republicans as “red state” and Democrats as “blue state”? The cowardly, whimpering, lying media! It’s all part of the conspiracy. Honestly, get your facts straight:

    Communism: everyone equally poor and pathetic
    Fascism: Elite few lead lives of luxury while everyone else suffers at their expense

    Does it really sound like Republicans are Communists?

    It’s like swatting flies with a Buick. A big gas-guzzling, pollution-emitting Buick.


    Michiel reply on July 11th, 2008 5:57 am:

    Republicans are fascists… got it.

    Signalist reply on August 18th, 2011 7:04 am:

    Mr. McCarthy, did you know that in fact the one society on this planet where factory workers were really appreciated was Hitler’s Third Reich?

    Not that I would defend nazis, I just think that facts are facts no matter what, and the fact is that nazis treated their working class better than any other society to this day, nazis needed a happy and productive people and it cost them nothing to make sure the people in fact is happy & productive.

    The deal was “we give you a job and make sure your employer doesn’t bully you, just don’t ask where the jews next door went, or what happened to the editor of that socialist newspaper, or where Gestapo took that university professor, or you just might be next.”

    Michiel reply on August 18th, 2011 5:55 pm:

    Signalist, I would have to disagree that the Nazi’s treated their workers well, and I have a video to back it up.


    Signalist reply on August 19th, 2011 1:19 am:

    Michiel, a cartoon, especially the “Der Führers face”, might not be that kind of source that I would use to back up my opinions, but if you want to believe a propaganda cartoon from 1940s that was banned quickly after the war, that’s your right I guess.

    Then again, we ARE discussing this in the comment section of a blog post about how ‘Dubya’ hates Santa and his poor little elves (which I strongily doubt since EVERYONE knows that Santa lives in Finnish Lapland, not in North Pole.)

    Michiel reply on August 19th, 2011 6:37 pm:

    Actually, Santa lives at the mall, I’ve seen him.

  6. Jinn Says:

    Joe, you are awesome.

    Hehe. Drivers Confused…


  7. McNutcase Says:

    I was always told Santa lived in Lappland. If you were rich, you could even go there and visit him.


  8. Torrent Says:

    Tell them they’re Jewish; Santa problem solved.

    But seriously how can someone not realize that it’s getting hotter? Ten years ago when I was but a flat-chested punk, anything over 80 was hot. Now anything less then 90 people tell me its to cold to go swimming or what ever else I can do to keep cool.


  9. Phelps Says:

    Stick to the big lie. You are already lying about Santa, go ahead and lie about a magic force field that floats his fortress of elvetude.

    Hell, I never lived in a house with a chimney when I was a kid, but that didn’t stop me from buying the shenanigans.


    Richard reply on July 10th, 2008 11:34 am:

    You mean that Santa isn’t real? OMG! You just ruined my whole childhood! I can’t believe that my own parents lied to me!

  10. A B Says:

    Ya know… North is relative.

    Just sayin, is all.


    Michiel reply on July 11th, 2008 5:36 am:

    North and South are fixed points, but East and West are relative and if standing on the North pole, no matter what direction you step you are heading South. You must be South of the North pole to be able to go East or West.

    Captcha: Hulk patron


    A B reply on July 11th, 2008 5:43 am:

    Ah ha… but that is “north” according to us, as we’re here, on Earth. Its not north to the rest of the universe, now is it? It could have just as easily been called “south”. Or for that matter, “blue” or “egg”.

    Who’s to say that we’re even thinking about this in the correct alignment? Yes, the universe has a type of flat plain laid out to it, and yes, our galaxy has a flat plane… but to what, exactly, are we aligning our self to? We, as humans, have a collective idea of up and down, and therefore, everything we draw has to have an up or down… or in this case, north and south. For all we know, we’re upside down according to another civilization, far far away. I’m of the idea that we’re all just rolling around on our sides, making our way around the ginormous black hole that is the center of the milky way. Wouldn’t that be cool?

    <— Astronomy minor with too much time on her hands.


    Michiel reply on July 11th, 2008 5:56 am:

    You are confusing relative with arbitrary. North and South are arbitrarily decided by us as humans, thus we apply it to the rest of the universe since we are obviously the only intelligent life in the universe. (God said so, I think there is a book about that somewhere, but I forget what it is called).

    Up and down are relative, based on the object on which you are standing and its gravitational pull. Any movement towards the center of gravity is considered “down” and any movement away from the center of gravity is “up”.

    But what if you are smack in the middle of two bodies with an equal gravitational attraction? When moving toward one and away from the other, you would appear to be moving down to anyone on the body you are moving toward, and up to anyone on the body you are moving away from.

    This is a nice, fun geeky/dorky arguement… please have some counter point to respond with as I am digging this way more than the global warming/Santa thing.

    Stickfodder reply on July 13th, 2008 5:34 pm:

    Currently from our point of view we don’t really need to worry what is up or down to the rest of the universe. But as time progresses and we start traveling into deep space and the rest of the universe we are going to need to start thinking in terms of three dimensions, on an x,y,z axis. No up no down only directions.

  11. Ed Hering Says:

    Speaking as a “right wing ass hat”, I have to ask how you care to explain the 0.775° drop in the global temperature anomaly in the past 18 months? This drop has eradicated all of the warming of the 20th century, and the “carbon dioxide=global warming” theory can’t explain why it’s happened.

    Besides that, the latest studies show that the oceans aren’t getting any warmer, either. Global warming can’t happen unless the oceans get warmer, but they’ve gotten cooler since 1998.

    I’m not trying to deny that climate change exists. It does; it happens all the time. It was warmer than it is now–warmer than it was in 1998–during the Medieval Warm Period; it was also lots cooler during the Little Ice Age. The warming which (so far) peaked during 1998 occurred after the Little Ice Age ended, which itself took place after the Medieval Warm Period…which happened before there were SUVs or blast furnaces.

    There are Chinese maps, dating from the Medieval Warm Period, showing little or no ice near the North Pole in summertime. This is not a new phenomenon.

    * * *

    Besides, everyone knows Santa built his workshop in the submarine ruins of Atlantis.


    Michiel reply on July 11th, 2008 5:38 am:

    Wow, that is pretty specific info… care to give a source?


    Lt Ronald reply on July 15th, 2008 7:48 pm:

    Global warming is Bullshit!

    In fact the south pole is growing. Ocean ice is increasing, rather than decreasing as the enviro-weenies would have you believe.

    The changes between the poles shift over the centuries, we are in a warming trend of the northern regions of our planet currently, and a massive cooling of the southern part of the planet (where the so-called experts say the large, man-made ozone hole is). This is not man-made global warming, this is isolated areas of natural climate change. I offer the following for the nay-sayers.

    Since you require sources, I will provide for you some peer-reviewed literature to take a look at, so as not to be debunked as just another right-wing ass hat.

    Doran, P. T., Priscu, J. C. Lyons, W. B., Walsh, J. E., Fountain, A. G., 2002, “Antartic climate cooling and terrestrial ecosystem response,” Nature 415: 517-20

    “Both satellite data and ground stations show slight cooling over the last 20 years.”

    Joughin, I., and Tulaczyk, S., 2002, “Positive mass balance of the Ross Ice Streams, West Antartica,” Science 295: 476-80

    “Side-looking radar measurements show West Antartic ice is increasing at 26.8 gigatons/yr. Reversing the melting trend of the last 6000 years.”

    Petit, J.R., Jouzel, J., Raynaud, D., Barkov, N. I., Barnola, J. M., Basile, I., Bender, M., Chappellaz, J., Davis, M. Delaygue, G., Delmotte, M., Kotlyakov, V. M. 1999, “Climate and atmospheric history of the past 420000 years from the Vostok ice core, Antartica,” Nature 399: 429-36

    “During the last four interglacials going back 420000 years, the earth was warmer than it is today.”

    Anderson, J. B., and Andrews, J. T., 1999, “Radiocarbon constraints on ice sheet advance and retreat in the Weddell Sea, Antartica,” Geology 27: 179-82

    “Less Antartic ice has melted today than occurred during the last interglacial.”

    “Antartic sea ice has increased since 1979.”

    Vyas, N. K., Dash, M. K., Bhandari, S. M., Khare, N., Mitra, A., and Pandy, P. C., 2003, “On the secular trends in sea ice extent over antartic region based on OCEANSAT-1 MSMR observations,” International Journal of Remote Sensing 24: 2277-87

    “Trend toward more sea ice may be accelerating.”

    Parkinson, C. L., 2002 “Trends in the length of the southern Ocean sea ice season, 1979-1999,” Annals of Glaciology 34: 435-40.

    “The greater part of Antartica experiances a longer sea-ice season, lasting 21 days longer than it did in 1979.”

    So in summary, quit all of your worrying about Santa and his elves, as they are just relocating to the south pole which is starting it’s very own mini-ice age.

    Global warming is probably the biggest money-making hoax in the existance of man-kind. Keep your contributions coming in, keep paying extra for that platinum filled catalytic converter, can we please add some more sensationalism to our news? Don’t be a sheep.

    Most people in weather have a theory about global warming which I am going to keep to my self since I doubt anyone is really interested. *holds up a burning “Save the Elves” sign*


  12. tsukinofaerii Says:

    What? No mention of Santa’s serious spinal injury when he tried to rescue the trapped elves by himself, because the official search and rescue teams were weeks late arriving? Or how he can’t afford health care because of the loss of his workshop, forcing him to live out the rest of his days in pain, begging for pennies on a street corner on Colorado?

    Forget who’s going to tell the children that Bush killed Christmas. Who’s going to tell BUSH? (I bet he still believes in Santa anyways.)


    Stickfodder reply on July 13th, 2008 5:42 pm:

    why do people keep on insisting that Santa would come to the US after losing his workshop. If he did live in the north pole (which he doesn’t) he has a whole world to go to so stop assuming, and being so arrogant.


    tsukinofaerii reply on July 14th, 2008 8:50 am:

    In my case, it was completely arbitrary because I live in the US and it’s natural to most closely identify with the area of the globe that I’m familiar with. I assure you that were I located elsewhere, Santa probably would be on a street-corner there instead. Or Canada–a homeless Santa would have to walk after all. Not much travel money.


  13. Jim C Says:

    The issue is too many people. You want to lower CO2 emissions, we need to lower the number of people. After all people do things that emit CO2. For a long time epidemics and natural disasters did this for us. We had to start giving other countries medicine and disaster aid and look where it has gotten us, too many people. We almost solved the issue in 1960s and 1970s with a nuclear war then Regean had to show up and win against the Soviets with setting of a single bomb. On the bright side a single good size asteroid will set thing right fairly quickly. As soon as we are all reduced to hunter gathers living in caves then man’s impact on the environment will drop to almost zero.

  15. SapperMedic Says:

    My question is this: What is anyone doing to change the cause of global warming and is there anything that can be done? Seriously, the reason I don’t take the global warming issue seriously is because most people who take up the cause are the same ones living in big houses, driving big cars, flying on huge planes, and consuming mass amounts of electrical energy which causes most of our pollution. So for anything to truly be done about this issue all driving of vehicles would have to cease, planes grounded, electricity turned off, and revert back to riding horses and living the way of our ancestors. Which one of the “left-winged” environmentalists would do that? Oprah? Matt Damon? You? Answer: none of them.


    Michiel reply on July 11th, 2008 5:44 am:

    It is fun to spot environmentalists by the bumper stickers on their cars.

    If only there were big ribbon magnets that show you are against global warming, we might be able to show as much support for that as we do our troops, and we would feel like we were closer to solving the issue.

  16. A B Says:

    Oh Michiel (btw, I have to ask, did your parents not know how to spell Michael?)

    Aribrary vs. Relative

    Whether or not north is north and south is south is arbitrary… is relative. (following me?) Its relative to you, as you believe its aribrary. I believe its relative as the people who determine north and south and up and down ar the ones viewing the event. Thus, the entire argument is relative to each of us… however the whole argument is arbitrary. Whether or not you want to continue this argument is subjective.

    PS: Can I have your babies?


    Michiel reply on July 11th, 2008 6:56 am:

    Ooops, thought I replied to your post, see the comment below this one.


  17. Michiel Says:

    Well it was actually my grandmother that could not spell. See my dad has the same name and spelling as I do. I asked grandma about the spelling she said she did it to be different. I call bullshit, because my dad is a twin, and she did nothing different to his brothers name, and their middle names are normal too.

    I am getting a little lost on the North/South thing, but I guess they are relative in the sense that if you stand on the North pole, there really is no longer a North for you, only South.

    “PS: Can I have your babies?”

    This is why I got into blogging in the first place… for the chicks.

    If I already had children I would have asked for an address to mail them to. But, since I don’t, I guess the proper response is for you to send a nude photo and I will send you a sperm sample.

    By the way, is it just me, or does a sperm sample sound like something you would try on at a perfume counter? Just rub it on your wrist then ask a friend to smell it and give an opinion.

  20. Jeremiah Hatch Says:

    Santa moved to the South Pole which is growing larger than ever before in history (fact). Santa and his elves will be there until the present warm solar cycle from the Sun ends sometime within the next 100 years (fact), and then he can return to the North Pole.
    By then Santa and his elves will be laughing at all of us because we will all be riding horses again. The horses and all of us will be fitted with mandatory catalytic converters to protect our environment from the methane gas every time we fart, and because we have all allowed ourselves to be taken in by the greatest scam on human kind in the history of the world.

    Now I’m not saying that I’m hard-sold on the whole global warming thing, but I think a couple of links supporting your argument don’t constitute proof to the point where you get to start throwing it around. I’ve seen scientific data that refutes the claims you made, and the evidence that you presented.

    Such as http://www.edf.org/documents/5544_SolarActivity_One-pager.pdf

    The problem is that people involved with both factions have a demonstrated motive to lie about the subject. And most of us don’t know enough about the science to have any serious degree of informed opinion.

    Michiel reply on July 15th, 2008 1:46 pm:

    Well, I need time to go over the second link, but the first link smells of bull shit to me. I think they are trying to mislead… here is why.

    When you go to the page you linked to, http://icecap.us/index.php/go/joes-blog/a_new_record_for_antartic_total_ice_extent it has a picture of a graph that appears to show the ice levels going up and would support what they are saying in the article. But, I can not find this graph on any of the links they provide in the article.

    They provide a link to a graph from the University of Illinois site, that shows that there is more ice in Antarctica than there has been since 1979. But when you click the link to look at the graph, it is a totally different one than is on Icecaps page in the article.

    Now, when looking at this graph, ( http://icecap.us/images/uploads/Antarctic.jpg ) it does in fact show more ice than any time since 1979. But it also shows that it is not much more and appears to be pretty much part of the normal ebb and flow of ice levels. If anything this graph shows that the ice levels appear to be more or less stable, some years there is more ice, some years less. Finally it is only showing ice levels over the last thirty years.

    So, to say that, “the South Pole which is growing larger than ever before in history (fact),” is incorrect. It is larger than anytime in the last thirty years, but you will need to provide sources that confirm that it is larger than any other time in the 4.5 billion years that the Earth has been here.

    Again, I have to wonder where they got the graph that they show in the article, that at a glance would seem to show the area of ice actually growing, but I could not find it on any of the links provided in the article. This leads me to assume they are attempting to mislead people that will not check a little deeper into what they are saying. Also the graph is so small, I can’t tell what it actually is about. http://icecap.us/images/uploads/ANTARCTIC_TOTAL_thumb.jpg

    So, like I said before, this source smells a little like bull shit, to me.

    Um, I just added a bunch of other peer reviewed articles for you all to check. See above^^^^^

    Call whatever you want bullshit, but i will happily spray co2 in the air while lighting my chilli farts, and clubbing a baby seal for its pelt.

    I am not saying “history” just trends.

    I do believe that global warming is the biggest scam in history.

    Michiel reply on July 18th, 2008 2:30 am:

    Please explain the “scam.” Scam implies a conscious effort at deception, usually for some sort of monetary or other gain.

    I think the people that believe global warming is real and caused by human activity believe it. I think those who are making “green” energy or other products also believe it is real. There may be some people capitalizing on global warming just because there is a larger market for “green” products now, but I doubt they are the ones behind the idea or the spreading of the idea.

    Again, please explain the “scam” aspect of this.

And as for global warming it would happen without us here it might just take longer. and as for the santa thing i hate that people teach kids that anyway and now theres complete morons that somehow think that lying to their kids about santa and why he’s no longer at the north pole is a reason to help stop global warming just proves i don’t want to bring children into this world because of dumb fucks like u. not because of global warming and as for bush leave the dude alone there isn’t a single person that would’ve done a better job with whats happening in our economy and by the time he became president it had gone to far for him to stop it anyway and on a last note fuck the polar bears they’re animals that have no real place in the food chain.


    Stickfodder reply on July 16th, 2008 4:59 am:

    Um at first I thought you must just be new here and a bit confused but with that comment about bush I see that you’re just a complete idiot. But I’m guessing that you are new here. let me explain something this is a military humor/general humor site and as for Michiel hes a funny guy and this is supposed to be a joke, not serious.
    And When George Bush Came into office the economy was great we had the highest surplus in decades if not longer and now we have the largest recession in our nation’s history our debt currently stands at over nine and a half billion dollars and climbing that is too large to simply be something left over from the last administration. Its because this is the only war in our nations history that has seen tax reductions instead of tax raises and our government has seen fit to send us all free cash on top of our tax refunds, cash it doesn’t even have so yeah it is bushes fault you cockbite.

    Captcha “for country” seems appropriate


    paula reply on July 16th, 2008 6:02 am:

    Ummmm, what stickfodder said goes for me, too, bmb84, with a couple small additions:
    1. Please learn how to hold a civil discussion.
    2. Please learn how to use puncutation and proper capitalization.
    3. Please read earlier comments BEFORE you write anything else!


    Stickfodder reply on July 16th, 2008 6:45 am:

    Yeah those are good additions also please don’t post the same thing twice. And I probably could have said what I said without calling bmb84 a cockbite

    Snyarhedir reply on March 12th, 2011 1:42 am:

    I probably agree somewhat with bmb84 said about George Bush, but little if any else, just on the basis that Michiel was not being serious in the first place.


    Michiel reply on July 18th, 2008 2:40 am:

    Dear bmb84,

    Way to miss the point completely.

    I have pre-marital sex. I am not gay, but have plenty of friends who are, and I am a serious agnostic, (not to start another long flame debate, but I think all religions are bullshit, and most people that follow a particular religion are fools, but to each his own, as long as they don’t force their bullshit on me).

    I am also not a fan of the Santa lie we tell children as I think it does cut into your credibility with your children later in life.

    This has to be the first time I have been bitched out by someone who agrees with me, and yet I feel that person is an idiot.

    Oh and since you got nasty, I get to be nasty back. The name I want to call you is…


    Yes, you are a fucktard.

    Now that we have cleared this up, I hope you keep reading the site, and have a better understanding of what we are doing here, as it is a humor site, so if it sounds serious, try reading it with sarcasm. I would have thought the Santa aspect would help with that, but I was wrong… at least in your case.

    Hugs and Kisses,

    Michiel reply on September 9th, 2008 10:30 pm:

    I should sue the bastard for stealing my idea, because there is no way anyone else can link the ideas of melting polar ice and Santa together but me.

    I’ve been intellectually robbed. Call the police.


    Stickfodder reply on September 10th, 2008 3:49 am:

    Just one little problem with that they posted theirs (Its made by 2 guys) back on Jan 05, 2007, and this little idea of yours wasn’t posted until July 10, 2008. Sorry.


    Michiel reply on September 12th, 2008 10:08 pm:

    Holy crap, they steal ideas and travel back in time. What crafty bastards.

    Hey your debating my comic awesome as for you Mike since you have cleverly figured out what I was doing I’m going to have to visit you 20 years ago in my Dolorean and fuck you up. You’ll remember the beating soon and then this post will disappear.No One else must know!!!


  28. Snyarhedir Says:

    I could hardly believe my eyes when I read that article. My geology teacher (and my textbook too, I bet) made it perfectly clear that there is no ice right at the North Pole, because glaciers do not form on or spread that far onto water. Granted, there MIGHT be a chance of a small number of ice bergs, but I doubt that there have been any there lately. But I am shocked because that article was published a year or two before I actually took that geology class.


  29. Snyarhedir Says:

    Plus, I also learned (maybe in an earlier science course) that, since there have been several ice ages at intervals of several millenia, we may be in the interval between two of them right now, because that is just the way Earth’s climate seems to fluctuate.

    In other words, both global warming and global cooling are probable, if not possible, if not real.

    I’m really loving your theme/design of your blog Skippy's List » Blog Archive » George Bush Hates Elves . Do you actually run into any browser compatibility problems? A number of our own audience have were not impressed with my own website not operating correctly within Internet Explorer although OK within Safari. Do you possess any kind of solutions to assist fix the problem… By the way how about Charlie Sheen incredible news!


    Michiel reply on May 9th, 2011 11:52 pm:

    I’m not sure if Skippy sees all the replies on the old posts or not, and frankly I am surprised how many replies i get to posts I made. I haven’t written on here in a couple of years. But you may want to email Skippy himself, or better yet, his wife, who I think is the web brains of the organization. This is her site. http://www.geekartist.com/

    Ok just checked the page you are refering to and indeed it does reflect when the player was signed to the 53 man roster. Apparently it takes a deeper understanding of the roster and players to realize that the year they signed with the packers wasn’t an indication of their relative draft status.
