You only have to look at the Blood Moons that took place only a few short years ago, with the dire predictions of impending apocalypse and a worldwide shortage of chocolate to understand that events like these really do short-circuit the brains of the
stark raving mad vulnerable and otherwise peaceful masses.
Now take the coming solar eclipse – and kiss your full moon goodbye. Crazy has a new king:
It isn’t only those trying to bump mankind up the evolutionary ladder that you need to watch out for. Apparently, the Lizard Man may also be on the loose during the eclipse:
and USA Today came out with this corker:
In the all-out rush to buy glasses with which to view the eclipse, of course there’s this headline:
A group calling themselves “Kentuckians for Coal” are protesting the solar eclipse, according to this press release. The group is angry about many things, including fake-news media hyping the eclipse while ignoring coal, overpriced souvenirs, and and the coming invasion of prostitutes.
The press release read like satire so I contacted the group to ask if it was such and was curtly rebuffed. “The coal industry in the United States is not a laughing matter” media coordinator Major Joseph Calvon informed me. He also wrote:
“We need the coal industry to be around for generations to come. Which is why we are protesting during the solar eclipse.”
I was still confused, but a Major outranks me so I didn’t ask further questions. Presumably the group is protesting the decline of the coal industry during a time when the sun won’t be able to generate solar power, but the press release clearly says that the group is “Protesting the solar eclipse”.
Adding to my confusion are the suggested slogans for the protest signs. One suggests “Blame Obama”, because sure I guess the president is responsible for the alignment of the moon and the sun now.
Another suggestion reads “Clean Coal!”. I’m guessing they must be thinking that the exclamation point is like a disclaimer or something. “Clean Coal! (actually, it doesn’t exist)”. Something like that.
My absolute personal favorite, though is “That’s What She Said!” Which I think is enough said on that topic. I wish them well.
At least there’s this to give us a laugh:
And I’ll leave you with this little gem that’s doing the rounds on Facebook:
I’ll take a look at the religious folk in my next post.
