Intentional Humour: March 2005 Archives

Stupid Questions

Australia: It's coming up Easter and for most people this will mean holidays and chocolate, but for the fundies it's just another opportunity to be offensive. Their efforts at education have resulted in creative comebacks from the great unwashed.

The Christians at the ABC have been papering the Ultimo building with pamphlets asking 'What does Easter mean?', writes Melissa Mason, of Marrickville. Among the answers scrawled over them, one clever wag has written 'Further to the east'.

Satirising the superstitious

United Kingdom: The organisation formerly known as the National Viewers and Listeners Association neglected to register the obvious choice of domain name when they changed their name. So, MediaWatch UK might not be quite what you were expecting:

MediaWatch-UK is a collective of grumpy old men and frumpy old women singularly dedicated to spoiling the fun of the rest of the British population. Please take time to browse through our site and read about our campaigns. For members of the bigoted right wing press who are having trouble making up enough anti-gypsy and anti-asylum seeker stories to fill their pages, our press page contains a wide range of outraged and reactionary stories that you can seize on to.

This service is open to Sun journalists as well, if that is, they can get over the moral duplicity of complaining about the filth on TV in their editorials whilst simultaneously exploiting images of topless females on their pages every day to sell more papers.

They are not the only collection of barking mad fundie killjoys to be spoofed, either. Take a peek at Anti-Christian Voice, which closely parodies the site of Stephen Green, the lone loon who campaigns against Jerry Springer, the Opera.

Both these links were discovered via MediaWatch Watch a laudable site which keeps its eye on those organisations who try to restrict freedom of expression because their imaginary friend is upset about it.
