Humor, Where Would We Be Without It?

[May 10, 2024]  The Babylon Bee strikes again with a series of hilariously funny, mocking articles that slander everybody and every trusted organization.  Humor is good, and for many reasons I won’t articulate here, but let it be known that you will feel better with a bit of humor.  Have it served daily so that you won’t be without it.

Note: You may have to sign up for The Babylon Bee to get access to these articles, but as of today, you have free access.

12 New Badges You Can Get In The More Inclusive Boy Scouts” – Much has been made about the Boy Scouts of America changing its name to “Scouting America” to promote greater inclusivity, but few people have heard about all the cool new merit badges scouts can now earn!  Merit Badges like the new Pride Badge (declaring it “fabulous”), the Flag Badge (for burning the American flag), the Crime Badge (for faking hate crimes), Decolonize The West Badge (no explanation needed).  Just think of all the amazing skills your child can develop while filling up their uniform with so many amazing badges.  The best part?  All scouts will receive every badge whether they’ve actually accomplished the task or not.  Inclusivity!

Research Discovers Women Will Support Any Cause No Matter How Murderous So Long As They Get To Wear A Scarf” – (U.S.) — New research has discovered that women will throw their support behind any cause, no matter how violent and sexist, as long as they get to wear a scarf.  “So, let me get this straight: this cause treats women as property, believes raping women an acceptable form of violence, and vows to murder innocent civilians – but I get to wear a scarf?” asked local college student Danielle Walker.  “That sounds amazing!  Sign me up!”

Trump Completely Obliterates Prosecution With Timely Use Of Reverse Card” – (NEW YORK — Donald Trump dealt a decisive blow to the prosecution this week in his ongoing hush money trial after expertly playing a Reverse card from the witness stand.  “Reverse!” Trump yelled excitedly.  “Perfectly timed, as always.  With a red card no less, my absolute favorite.  Now, I get to ask the questions.”

‘The Rock’ Finally Breaks Mold With New Role As Intense But Kinda Zen Jokester Muscly Action Guy” – (HOLLYWOOD, CA) — “It’s time for me to try something out of my comfort zone,” Johnson said in a press release.  “For my next film project, I’ll be taking on the role of a character unlike any I’ve portrayed in previous movies.  This time, I’ll be playing a wise-cracking alpha male who looks like a bodybuilder and shoots guns while things explode around him in enormous fireballs.  It’ll be a stretch, but I’m eager to do something new.”

Target Unveils New Line Of Hamas Intifada Wear For Children” – (MINNEAPOLIS, MN) — In a show of support for anti-Israel protests on college campuses and other places across the country, retail giant Target unveiled a new line of Hamas intifada wear for children.  The new line is scheduled to arrive in stores in the coming weeks and will allow customers to outfit their toddlers, preschoolers, and grade school students in the latest fashion inspired by one of the world’s most prominent Islamic terrorist organizations.  “Now your kids can join the war against the Jewish oppressors!” said Target marketing spokesperson Jen Grant.

… and my favorite:

Uighur Slaves Struggling To Keep Up With Demand For Palestinian Headscarves” – (XINJIANG, CHINA) — Thanks to the recent uptick in awareness of worldwide injustices and inequalities, Uighur slaves are struggling to keep up with the demand for more Palestinian headscarves.  The traditional keffiyeh is the square cotton scarf that is being worn on liberal college campuses around the United States in solidarity with the Free Palestine resistance movement.  Unfortunately, those headscarves aren’t affordable to poor college students unless the manufacturing is outsourced to Uighur slaves in China.  “We are really glad that college kids are paying attention to unfair and oppressive conditions around the world,” said one Uighur, Aygul Ablet, through her prison bars to a translator.

Ouch!  I told you that last one was my favorite.

A touch of humor, mocking humor, is always the best for a guy like me.  My best friend Jimmy says, “Hey, don’t assume my gender.”  Yeah, that’s why I like him so much.

    Without humor, we would not be human. Too bad so many leftists today are trying to destroy humor. That should tell you something is sinister/evil in those who push radical leftist ideologies.

      JT, excellent observation. 👍 Too bad that so many young folks are enticed into this evil that pervades our institutions and while I understand that they are drawn to it thru seeming “morally superior” to us heathens, I would hope they come around to see the light. 👀👀👀👀👀 While I have little faith they will see what is so obvious, I am saddened by so many politicians and community and religious leaders, who themselves are part of this evil. 💉 It’s a drug, a moral drug, and they cannot pull away because they lack the moral fortitude and the belief in God. 🙏 I can only pray for them, for they do not know what they do.

    🎯 TARGET’s new Line Of Hamas Intifada Wear For Children is the best one. 🎯

  3. Pastor John 🙏

    Whenever I wake up in the morning, the first thing I do is turn to the talk show hosts who are funny and make me think of the good things that are happening. So, talk radio can be a source of good, not just information but good. One of those used to be Rush Limbaugh and Gen. Satterfield captured his unfortunate passing in this respectful article, “The Doctor of Democracy: RIP”
    A good hint to a good life is to listen to those things that are proven to be good.

      Hi Pastor John, then you also go back to the time of Don Imus on the Radio. Gen. Satterfield wrote a profile article on him back in 2019. Titled “Profile: Don Imus”. I recommend reading it. Gen. S. did a great job.
      Don Imus was an abrasive radio personality that never shied away from acidic humor and telling us what he thought. He was known to his fans as the “I-man” who prided himself on speaking his mind on politics, pop culture, and other hot topics.1 People either hated him or loved him. I listened to him on WOR 710 Radio out of New York. Interestingly, Don Imus had been fired from several jobs before his long-run radio career and after. His sense of humor rarely aligned with the political correctness of America, causing him trouble. The I-man was a take-no-prisoners interviewer on his radio show. If Don Imus interviewed you and you tried to be funny, he could see it a mile away and make you suffer the consequences.

        Don Imus, now he was da man, really. Don Imus was my favorite radio host that I ever heard. He was the very best at what he did. Too bad he passed away.

      Hey, thanks Chopper. I haven’t seen you in the leadership forum in awhile. Welcome back, man.

    “Uighur Slaves Struggling To Keep Up With Demand For Palestinian Headscarves” – (XINJIANG, CHINA)
    My favorite too and for many reasons. This one takes a poke at the lack of intellectual honesty of those who protest on campuses today. So, when you have people who cannot distinguish between good and evil, then you have a problem of serious proportions. And this iswhat this humor today is about with this one. The Babylon Bee is one of those that mocks the kind of childish behavior we see in the kids going to college but also in adults who have the power to influence us but have zero accountability. Thanks Gen. Satterfield for this. I read them all and smiled.

    Gen. Satterfield …. you da man…. humor is a great way to live your life. But you must also be on the look out for evil trying to place itself as a good. And some of the best humor pulls out this idea and exposes it. Watch out for that evil. The good news is that evil rarely survives in an environment of humor, honesty, and truthfulness. 🙏

      1. Autistic Techie

        Are you just trying to cause trouble here, Rev. Michael Cain? Seems like it. You are always writing things that are serious, religious, attempting to point out what is good in life, showing people the right path to a good life (like Gen. Satterfield’s “55 Rules for a Good Life”), and helping people. So you are causing trouble if we define that as being a Christian. That is how university minions who know everything, and that shows because they are the MOST educated people ever, despite never graduating from there. he he he he he
