These jokes are smarter than you are.

Getting a diagnosis of something is not always beneficial.

What would you see in a box made of mirrors? I don’t know about you, but I see Benoit Mandelbrot nodding his head.

“Christians have become known for a deeply distorted moral agenda by elevating the anti-gay cause to the top of their public ethics, and this in a world afflicted by war, hunger, ecological disaster and all manner of social injustice.”

Even Republicans admit that the whole IRS “scandal” was a total nothingburger. Not that this will stop them from claiming that it wasn’t, of course.

RIP, Texas Johnny Brown, blues legend.
