The OTBL Internut Shopping Nutwork Proudly Anounces BLAB-Certified Roadkill Wear

Do you see the world in two colors?
Is your head better suited for a hat rack than rationale thinking?
Did you get you head sunburned at the recent blog fest?
Can you hear your neighbors talking across the way about skunks without ever smelling any?
Have you ever had duct tape burns on your lips?
Did you record over the tape of your family's Disney vacation to video tape school board officials eating supper at the golf course?
Do you tell your family you're stepping out to get a copy of the Star-Observer, when you are actually going to anger management classes?
Do you like to bully those that don't agree with you?
Do you ever get the urge to pick up the phone and call people in the middle of the night that don't agree with you?
Do you get really mad reading the above questions?



If you said "that son of a bitch" to one or more of these questions, we have just the hat for you. These BLAB-certified roadkill skunk hats are just what you need. It's one thing to have absolutely no class when you go ballistic in public, but it's an entirely different matter to do it with a certain laissez-faire style. All the big thinking cult leaders and idols of your neighborhood borderline bloggers are wearing them.

Don't wait! Supply is limited. You've alreay missed 6/6/6 and Armageddon could be just a rapture away. Order online at www.ontheborderline.nutcase or call 666-1776 to place your order today. Or, if your in the neighborhood, stop by our factory outlet in Roswell, New Mexico. Remember, we don't accept credit cards, checks or paper money -- it's solid gold only.

This is pretty worthless. Oh look I can use MS Paint and place pictures of skunks on people who are better than me! Is this what passes for satire around here? I can see why the other site you obsess over criticizes the schools.

"Better than me..." That's a rather unlibertarian generalization. What would make any of those skunk hat wearing heroes of the OTBL blog better than anyone else? What have they contributed to society, as a collective whole? I can't speak for others on this blog, but I went to private school.

Humor and satire is in the eye of the beholder. Obviously, you don't behold the same eyes as others. And I thought you libertarians where all about individuality. I guess that holds true only when it works for you. Check out the "humor" at OTBL and you'll find much of it is along the lines of pouring gas on cats and striking a match to it. Once again, that humor is in the eye of the beholder.

An "unlibertarian generalization"? How so?

As for what they have contributed, the Austrian school of economics and Rand's writings and enduring following which at the least offers a challenge to conventional mysticism are tremendous contributions. This is why people know who Ayn Rand is (and to a lesser extend Ludwig von Mises), and no one knows who the MSPaint artist who places skunks on top of people's heads and calls it humor is.

While libertarains are all about freedom and individuality, we are not postmodernists. Please do not mix us up again.

People know who Ayn Rand is because wealth power and influence beget wealth power and influence.

I'll admit that the skunk hats aren't the pinnacle of our satire. But even the lowliness of that is surpassed by the rudeness and crudeness of OTBLers who stand and applaud when school administrators announce their retirements.
Or paint huge "Taxe Penis" signs to promote their candidates abhorance of public education funding.

I'm no Bible thumper. But when it is
relavent I will stoop to quoting the Good Book. With people like you roaming the blogoshpere and the halls of power I have to wonder if there isn't something to Biblical prophecey.

"But know this, that in the last days grievous times shall come. 2 For men shall be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, haughty, railers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 without natural affection, implacable, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, no lovers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, puffed up, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God;

Sounds like disciples of Autie Aynie to me.
