[Content Note: Welcome to the inaugural post of my new series, I Am Mad About A Thing, in which, as the most astute of readers may have surmised, I string words together to express to you, in ways that hopefully will entertain and delight you, and if not, well, go fuck yourself, I wasn't talking […]

Stephen Colbert got a little manic Tuesday night, bringing us the terrifying news about the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS): they aren’t just taking over Iraq; they’re also dominating social media, building support on Twitter, Facebook, even Instagram. Oh, they’re huge on Instagram. They’ve got one filter to make all the photos seem […]

Oh, hurrah, the goatz have struck again! For some while now, a clever fellow calling himself Busta Troll has made a hobby of rudely seizing control of egregiously rightwing Facebook pages and replacing their idiocy with pun-filled images of goats. It would be inaccurate to call this “hacking,” since that actually requires playing dirty with […]

So here’s another of those “bureaucracy before brains” stories that reliably get trotted out to prove that All Government Is Bad: in the Kansas City suburb of Leawood, Kansas, adorable nine-year-old Spencer Collins has been informed by the city that his nifty “Little Library” is in violation of zoning ordinances, and has to be removed. […]

Put on your thinking caps and caption this photo from the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) Facebook page — they’re promoting a petition calling on Republicans to stop denying climate change; but we’re just in it for the yuks. Maybe you will find inspiration in the Facebook comments, which are mostly idiots explaining that global […]

Karlesha Thurman’s baby was hungry. Karlesha was graduating from Cal State Long Beach, where she studied accounting. Karlesha did what mothers have done since motherhood began: she fed the kid from her own boob. Her friend snapped a photo, which Karlesha posted on a breastfeeding forum on Facebook AND SUDDENLY EVERYONE WENT INSANE. READ MORE […]

Have you guys heard about our new favorite — and by “favorite” we mean WHAT THE HELL, DUDE — state legislature candidate? Meet Scott Esk, a Republican running for office in Oklahoma. Scott would be just your run-of-the-mill semi-ginger who is hella mad about his receding hairline except for this one little standout fact: he’s […]

Yesterday we brought you the story of the NRA’s suggestion that Open Carry Texas might want to tone it down a bit. The merry bands of gun fondlers who have done so much to endear themselves to Texas fast-food customers, the NRA said, may actually be harming the cause of Guns Everywhere by scaring the […]

It’s getting to where there is just no freedom at all anymore. Look at poor Jo Lynn Haussmann, a recently elected member of the school board in Keller, Texas, who was only trying to emphasize the importance of voting last week when she posted this important message on her FacePlace account: “Do you realize because […]

Hurrah, Yr Derp Roundup is back after a brief hiatus, and we are delighted to bring you a premium selection of the gunk that was stuck to our browser tabs, stories that didn’t quite merit a post of their own, but were too stupid to ignore altogether. We recommend adding the reality-dilution substances of your […]

A Florida prosecutor just wanted to send a positive message to women on Mother’s Day, but for some reason, a lot of people seem not to recognize his inspirational intentions. Assistant State Attorney Kenneth Lewis posted this little ray of sunshine to his Facebook account on May 11: Honestly, it’s like people go out of […]

Buttsechs. Some people like to do it in their butts, while other people like to pay their rent owning mommyblogs that for some weird reason unknown to G_d or man (COUGH ANA MARIE COUGH) have become synonymous with anal loving. Still other people like to be elected representatives of the people of South Dakota and […]

We love us some George Carlin. We can think of no higher occupation than Foole. We even love his later ranty years, those concerts where he was so thoroughly disgusted by the Damned Human Race and our institutions that it took a conscious act of will for him to go out on stage and not […]

You’d think that maybe Republicans might have learned something from what happened when Ted Cruz asked Facebook readers to say they hate Obamacare. Which is to say, he got trolled hard by people who love not dying in the streets. Today, Mitch McConnell’s Facebook page is asking folks how they think he should wield a […]

Ted Cruz wanted evidence of the popular disgust and anger against Obamacare that he’s sure most Americans feel, so he posted a simple question to his FacesPlaces pages last week: Quick poll: Obamacare was signed into law four years ago yesterday. Are you better off now than you were then? Comment with YES or NO! […]
