More member satire.
« on: November 04, 2011, 08:16:42 PM »
For anyone interested in some of the old stuff, you can sift through this thread
http://sguforums.com/index.php/topic,30396.0.html or just go here http://www.thechicagodope.com/author/J-Goodbody/.

I've been honored to have two of my pieces featured in the humor section "Last Laugh" of the Skeptical Inquirer so I know that while they are not for everyone, they are not terrible.

I do have two new pieces I'd like to share.

Italian scientists successfully isolate antipasto
Physicists were able to stabilize a plate of cured meats and brie-like cheeses for nearly four minutes.

and

Hi, everyone. I'm new to the forums but have been listening to the podcast for quite a while.

Here's a link to a cartoon I posted to You Tube regarding the absence of miracles in modern-day society. Hope you enjoy it.

Arthur the Middle-aged Admin: "Miracles."


In a similar vein, here's a 'toon related to Kirk Cameron's infamous crockoduck:

Kirk Cameron and the crocoduck.


Similar humor will be posted in the future on this Facebook page:

Man, it's been a while.  Enjoying reading through everyone's creations, though.  Just haven't done anything lately.  Well, I've broken the satire-fast.
