Obamas Worship Shark God In Hawaiian ‘Church’

She's gone with the Hula Hula boys, she don't care about me ...While you were trying to pry off your frozen Depends in the backseat of the 1987 Plymouth K-Car you call home, fancy Afro-Hawaiian Barack Obama and his family of vegetable-grazing elitists were worshiping the Hawaiian Shark God at the heretical abomination known as “Christmas in Hawaii.”

Look at these people, in their board shorts and aloha shirts, sipping “communion Mai Tais” from the ceremonial skull of a lu ow pig. How is this even Christmas? Did the Baby Lord Jesus kick back on the sand while a sultry breeze warmed his tiny holy testicles? Yes he did, because the Baby Lord Jesus was born in the desert in springtime, ha ha ha, if there ever was a Jesus. One thing we know about for sure, however, is that the Shark God is real and true and we must sacrifice one Australian to this One Real God every year or so, to keep the Earth from being fed to the Sun.

            Horsedreamer appears to be exceptionally drunk even by wonkette standards.

            The fact that Wonkette has standards is in itsself a whole new topic of discussion.

            Sorry 'bout that. Sometimes I slip into what I call "tard-speak" (though, in fact, it is patterned on the speech of former Atlanta Brave Gerald Williams (I have always assumed, for that, that the mid-thirties caucasians who pioneered 'tard-speak', back when they were in college, did so from at least a residual racism (though I would never call them racists, since they would vociferously reject that notion)) when it would not be apparent to the audience that such is what I am doing. Mostly, then, I use it to say "the obvious" &/or the obvious. &, indeed, Barack Obama is a white male in mom jeans.

      Please, please Shark God, take Tony Abbott this year! Take him when he's prancing about on the beach in his budgie smugglers. A grateful nation will then gladly surrender someone useful and attractive each hot yuletide.

      • Negropolis

        That Tony Abbott looks like an unevolved ape about the face. He just looks creepy in every possible way. Oh, and your prime minister looks like a advertisement for the Botox. I've never seen a genuine smile from the woman.

    Did the Baby Lord Jesus kick back on the sand while a sultry breeze warmed his tiny holy testicles? Yes he did, because the Baby Lord Jesus was born in the desert in springtime, ha ha ha, if there ever was a Jesus.

    Jesus could clear all this up if only he would just release the long-form.

  • OkieDokieDog

    I wonder what they're singing? Something by Black Sabbath? Justin Bieber?

    • gef05

      They're singing the "YEAH!" which follows

      "Living just for dying
      Dying just for you"

      Only Malia is really nailing it, though.

      Edit: Oh my. Down votes! Someone hates Black Sabbath.

    • horsedreamer_1

      Muslins gathered in their masses
      Just like witches at black masses
      Evil minds that plot destruction
      Sorcerers of death's construction
      In the fields bodies burning
      As the War on Christmas machine keeps turning
      Death & hatred to mankind
      Poisoning their brainwashed minds
      Oh, Lord, yeah!

      Some ancient Hawaiian death dance, surely.

    This is a massive setback, if you think about all the scienc-ey stuff he was doing. White House star party, appearance on Mythbusters — I really thought we were looking at the first agnostic President!

    *sigh*

    Now he's just another Sarah Palin. He might as well just say "Hellelujah" and get saved or something.

        Nope. Malia's still black, if you've forgotten already.

    • BeWoot

      I'm concerned about her posture, though. Even the daughters of muslin negro kenyan bolsheviks should stand up and be proud.

    Cryin' Orange Johnny B is not Australian but can we sacrifice him to the Shark God anyway?

  • charlesdegoal

    Does the Shark God demand that Julian Assange be sacrificed or would he be OK with, like, Olivia Newton-John?

    • gef05

      She's English.

      Yes, I'm Australian. Yes, I've had this fucking conversation before.

      • Over_Ed

        Yea, but thats the same thing right?

        • gef05

          The knife… in my back… must withdraw.

          Actually, the jokes used to hurt. But now that Aussies have a much higher standard of living than the English, it's all gotten a bit embarrassing. Imagine if the US had once owned Canada, how an American would now feel.

          Oh, that's low.

          • Over_Ed

            LOL- wouldn't be as hard for me to move

          • horsedreamer_1

            Do you claim AC/DC, or do you let Scotland have them?

          • charlesdegoal

            ONJ was admittedly born in England but her father was Welsh father and her mother Jewish, and she was raised in Australia and probably has an Oz passport, or perhaps a US one by now. The Shark God doesn't know the difference, or doesn't care.

            Especially Bon. (RIP)

          • Numbat_Dundee

            At least Bon came here young enough to develop and Aussie accent, as did Mel Gibson before he reverted to the original Yank accent he had before hecamne to Australia as an 8 year old. Beware Americans arguing that all these people aren't Australian – you''ll have to claim Mel as your own work entirely.

    • LionelHutzEsq

      Doesn't Australian citizenship come down to whether or not your father was a rapist? Or has Flight of the Conchords led me astray again?

      They could take Nicole Kidman who's an Australian born in Hawaii and is past her used by date. But as mentioned above, the vote of the nation would be for Tony Abbott in his budgie smugglers (google image that at your peril).

    I, for one, cannot believe they allowed the muslins to build a mosque at pearl harbor, the ground zero of the 20th century.

      …but it is a modern mosque, where women can sit with their husbands.

    Any celebration without representations of snow is an attack on Christmas. Because we know that the Middle East is hit by snow blizzards all winter long, and Jesus was born covered in snow (and frankincense).

        Murry is the traditional Jewish name for a Snowman (like Frosty).

      Ronald Reagan, who defeated a Southern Baptist President who taught Sunday school, never went to church. He claimed it would create too much commotion but when asked if he had been born again replied he thought so but couldn't remember when it happened and wasn't sure what Protestant church he belonged to.

          I know I'm replying to my own post, and that this is off topic. But it's too good not to share:

          [From Wikipedia entry for George Lincoln Rockwell]:

          Hatenanny Records and the Hate Bus

          In the 1960s, Rockwell attempted to draw attention to his cause by starting a small record label, named Hatenanny Records (the name was based on the word "hootenanny", a term given to folk music performances). The label released several 45 RPM singles, including recordings by a group credited as Odis Cochran and the Three Bigots, and were sold mostly through mail order. A truncated version of one of the band's recordings, "Ship Those Niggers Back" appears in the documentary The California Reich. When the Freedom Riders drove their campaign to desegregate bus stations in the deep South, Rockwell secured a Volkswagen van and decorated it with swastikas and white supremacist slogans, dubbing it the "Hate Bus" and personally driving it to speaking engagements and party rallies.

          "Hatenanny Records."

          Okay, "reality" has beaten me once again. Even I can't top that one.

    I've been in that chapel! Many (well, 20-ish) years ago, my ex was stationed at KMCAS. The kids and I attended mass in the base chapel. They put up a huge crucificix for the Catholic mass (us), and swapped it out for a huge plain cross for the non-denominational protestant service.

    Why, I was this: ll close to meeting the prez and his lovely family! And my younger son has a birth certificate that looks just like President Obama's. His is acceptable, however, due to the color of his skin.

    Speaking of Hawaii and black politicians, the late Coleman A. young, Dictator of Detroit from 1974 to 1993, onced opened with an "Aloha, motherfuckers!" to Detroit journalists on a closed-circuit television appearance. I miss the old bastard. This was a time when big city machine mayors were corrupt, but colorfully so.

    Here are some other quotes by the great Coleman Young:

    "I'm smiling all the time. That doesn't mean a goddamned thing except I think people who go around solemn-faced and quoting the Bible are full of shit."

    And my personal favorite:

    "Swearing is an art form. You can express yourself much more exactly, much more succinctly, with properly used curse words."

    Amen to that. That like the motto of The Wonkette.
