Inhumane Killing of Feral Cats

TurboTax has a scoreboard at the top of the screen that shows your progress. It’s kind of like a text adventure game where you’re trying to get […]

Is Your Baby Gay?

Surfing the ‘net again. The Christians have created a new fear – that a gay baby may have taken up residence in your uterus. Horrors! We liked it much better when Mia Farrow was infested with the Spawn of Satan in the movie “Rosemary’s Baby.” Is Your Baby Gay? Pretty soon, a DNA test could […]
