In a development that no one could have predicted, the first day of Georgia’s exciting new “Guns Everywhere” law was celebrated with an armed encounter between two open-carrying gentlemen in a convenience store. Happily, since An Armed Society Is A Polite Society, the incident didn’t actually escalate to gunplay, proving that there’s definitely nothing to worry […]

Let us tell you about how yr Wonkette accidentally made a monster years ago, and only now is that chicken coming home to roost. (Mixed metaphors, whatever, fuck off.) In 2010, we mock-endorsed some ridiculous wingnut nobody for a Georgia Congressional race, just because we could. Our endorsee, Jody Hice, ended up doing surprisingly well […]

About six weeks ago, we wrote a completely unfunny post about a botched execution in Oklahoma in which Clayton Lockett died a lengthy and agonizing death because the whole affair was basically fueled by Mystery Death Drug. States have begun using versions of Mystery Death Drug because overseas manufacturers have refused to supply the key […]

Looks like another Sovereign Citizen was trying to start a one-man revolution against the corrupt institutions of government (or, of course, it’s yet another false-flag scheme to take our Guns and Freedom). The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that a gentleman named Dennis Marx (so obviously another of the right’s “violent liberal Marxists”), who “identified himself as […]

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 […]

In the closest thing to a “Super Tuesday” in this off-year election, a whole bunch of Tea Party candidates did worse than expected against “mainstream” Republicans who had better funding and who all sound like teabaggers now anyway. The biggest win of the night was less of a surprise now than it might have been […]

Here’s your feel-good fun-time story of the day! Paris Gray, a painfully bright senior at Mundy’s Mill High School in Clayton County, Georgia, made a pretty cool science joke in her yearbook: When the going gets tough just remember to Barium, Carbon, Potassium, Thorium, Astatine, Arsenic, Sulfur, Uranium, Phosphorus. And just in case you don’t […]

Because he is the most lefty liberal commie Marxist something something who has ever usurped the White House, President Barack Obama nominated this one Georgia peach named Michael Boggs to the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia. Boggs, a former attorney and currently a judge on the Georgia Court of Appeals, […]

Is Dok Zoom enjoying his couple days off? Probably! But before he headed out, we made him sluice out the comments queue. It was not pretty. First up, a reply to the first of our two stories about South Dakota state Rep. Steve Hickey, who objects to men doing it in the butt. This comment […]

This time out, Dear Shitferbrains is happy to bring you something of a public service announcement, based on a note we got from someone on our side of the political fence. And so we adjust our tone settings from “withering sarcasm” to “gently chiding correction” (the “nice” setting got fried years ago). Our piece endorsing […]

Over the weekend the National Rifle Association held its annual Gun Fetishization and Circle Jerk for Dim-Bulb Paranoids. The lucky host city was Indianapolis, which saw itself invaded by 70,000 armed lunatics for three days of strutting jingoism and fear-mongering. Ghoulish death-head Wayne LaPierre showed up to give the very same speech that he gave […]

Say hello to John Stone and his little friend! His ancestor, he tells us, “used a cannon like this to fight the British in Savannah and win us the Constitution,” which doesn’t make one lick of sense since any fool knows that John Stone’s ancestor was actually fighting for the Articles of Confederation. But perhaps […]

Today, Georgians with a hyperinflated sense of ego-driven invincibility rejoiced as Governor Nathan Deal signed into law a bill that allows them to protect innocent victims virtually anywhere they wish, like when they’re drinking or when someone gives them the sideeye for not putting anything in the collection plate. Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal signed a wide-ranging […]

In today’s latest example of why primary elections mean that we can’t have nice things, Georgia Rep. Jack Kingston (R-Waffle House) has decided that he is NOT losing his chance at Saxby Chambliss’s Senate seat just because he once said that there might be a way for research to guide public policy as it relates […]

In Henry County, Georgia, the cops take the “broken windows” theory of crime really really seriously, so when police officers responded to a 911 call about kids building a tree fort, one of the cops advanced on the children with his gun drawn. Can’t be too sure, you know? Janice Baptiste, the mother of 11-year-old […]
