I saw this at lunch and thought it was just hilarious for some reason.  Very sacreligious. 

New Political Bible Adds (R) Or (D) After Each Character's Name
https://babylonbee.com/news/new-political-bible-adds-r-or-d-after-each-characters-name

Quote
"Obviously, right off the bat, God is followed by an R, while the serpent is followed by a D," the project's chief editor, Dr. Gary Leyland, told reporters. "Those ones are easy. Some of the other characters are a little tougher, as we have little written evidence of their modern American political ideology. But we can usually figure it out with context. For instance, if a character works a lot and is rich, they're a Republican. If a character is poor and wears sandals, definitely Democrat. Except for Jesus."

Police Officer Claims He Feared For His Life After Shooting Family's Roomba To Death

Quote
Now the officer claims he feared for his life when he was "aggressively approached" by the automated vacuum device.

"I feared for my life, and that is why I unloaded approximately 11 rounds into the dangerous, aggressive robot vacuum," he said in a press conference. "You don't always have time to accurately assess all threats when you are in a life-and-death situation like that. Police officer safety is our number one priority when we're out in the field."

"Uh, I mean, other than your safety, of course," he quickly added.

Popular New 'Noah Diet' Has You Eat Two Of Every Animal At Every Meal

Quote
The diet calls for adherents to eat two of every animal at every meal. While some complain the price would add up on all that meat, Embry says, "you can't put a price on good health." Embry is also developing new Noah milkshakes that contain two of every animal blended together in one delicious, easy-to-prepare smoothie. "We're also working on a jerky line," Embry told reporters.

Re CNN's washing machine...

I'm no fan of Snopes, but I suspect it was the dozens, if not hundreds, of broken people who hit Snopes to check out the story who made them enter it as an item.

Either that, or Snopes has a sense of humor, too.

Grizzly Bear Shatters All Pro Wrestling Records After Identifying As Human

“The Grizzly has stated that his preferred pronouns are he/him/human and so we are going to respect that,” said A.J. Styles, wincing in pain as doctors attempted to realign his spine — another victim of the Grizzly’s punishment.

I got a chuckle out of this headline:

https://babylonbee.com/news/obamas-promise-to-donate-all-proceeds-from-multimillion-dollar-book-netflix-deals-to-combat-wealth-inequality

Also the last line:
"At publishing time, the Obamas had released a video in which they committed to allowing refugees and undocumented immigrants to stay in their new mansion."

No doubt the refugees and illegals will turn down the cash, and ask for one of Michelle's hash-tags, instead.

It was only a matter of time before someone accused the Bee of racism.  Something near and dear to his heart got satirized.

When they say "racist", it doesn't seem to mean anything in particular.

Whites being racist toward blacks, at least in America, became a joke sometime around 2009. Not because a black guy was elected, but because the race card was finally so over-used, it just gave out.

Of course, that's just my opinion. When I hear that a white American has been racist, I tend to roll my eyes, or laugh. Unless, of course, the evidence shows it's true. Clearly, there are people still being fooled by the wolf-crying.

Meanings are getting badly blurred in the language, with connotative meanings being used for everything.

Racism is bad, but not everything bad is racist.  I'm surprised that nobody is using the term "racist" to describe a 30-car pileup on the highway.  

Hey, pileup bad.  Racism bad.  Therefore pileup is racist.

It may come to that sooner or later if everything is called racist.
