It's too hot to handle so I gotta get up and go

It's a cruel ... cruel summer"

who says conservatives aren't funny?

You may have seen the Conservapedia on Big Orange, but, oh my, it is going to be a source of unending laffs.

From the entry on Mesopotamia:

Genesis 2:8-17 (NAS) describes the beginning in Mesopotamia . . . Using the ages mentioned in the Bible and counting backwards, biblical scholars have dated this as about 6000 years ago, or about 4000 B.C. This is about 500 years before our earliest record of ancient writings.
The biblical account of the Flood is at Genesis 5-8, describing an ark having reasonable dimensions similar to modern ocean steamships. . . . Recently two scientists at Columbia University published a widely praised book that proved that the Flood did occur, entitled "Noah's Flood," . . . Yet no public school textbook ever mentions a massive flood.
The American Civil War is explained in depth:
The American Civil War was a war in the United States of America between the North and the South. The North wanted the South to give up its slaves. The South wanted to keep its slaves and lower tariffs. The South had the upper hand at the beginning of the war, but the North came out the winner. Slavery was abolished for the most part and reconstruction took over. One key battle and a bloody one was the Battle of Gettysburg, following which Abraham Lincoln gave his Gettysburg Address.
