OMG you guys, did you hear about the school in Georgia that’s so bent on removing any trace of Christianity that it forced kids and teachers to take down the Christmas cards that they used to put up in the school hallways? It’s really terrible, better call that school and give ‘em a piece of […]

Greetings from Wonkette’s brand new Bunker O’ Love, the underground safe room on our Idaho compound where we go to write about guns, gun accessories, and how they have made America great. Today, we have several tales of Great Americans using their guns for personal protection while keeping them in reserve to rise up against […]

It’s getting to where political correctness is just ruining everything, isn’t it? ABA Journal reports that Court officials in DeKalb County, Ga., acted quickly after learning that an online jury form listed “slave” as a possible occupation. They add that the choice was deleted from the drop-down menu within an hour after a teevee news […]

Happy Gayvember, everyone! How is the Pentagon defying G_d today? Per Stars and Stripes: Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel on Thursday sharply criticized U.S. states that are defying the Pentagon by refusing to allow National Guard facilities to issue ID cards that enable same-sex spouses of military members to claim benefits. “This is wrong,” Hagel said […]

Ralph Hudgens, the insurance commissioner for the great state of Georgia, recently bragged to a meeting of Republicans, “Let me tell you what we’re doing (about ObamaCare)[:] … Everything in our power to be an obstructionist.” Oh, really? Tell us more, Atlanta Journal-Constitution columnist Jay Bookman! After pausing to let applause roll over him, a […]

Here’s an actual hero: Antoinette Tuff, a clerk at Ronald E. McNair Discovery Learning Academy in Decatur, Georgia, who talked Michael Brandon Hill into laying down his semiautomatic rifle and abandoning his plan to commit suicide by cop yesterday. Hill had come to the school expecting to shoot up the school and then to die in a […]

Georgia Rep. and wannabe-senator Phil Gingrey (R-Naturally) is one of those people, as so many Republicans are, who should not speak words. Like that time, when his party was busy insisting that no, Republicans do not hate browns and chicks and gays (well, okay, yeah, they still hate gays), and he opened his dumb yap […]

Do you cower in fear at the beginning of every April, with that fear intensifying until the middle of the month, when you have a nervous breakdown and open that Y2K bunker you stupidly built but now only use once a year? Because as we all know, the middle of the April is when the […]

It seems that someone in the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, which runs the state’s parks, decided that if Bibles are good enough for motel rooms, then sure, why not distribute them in the cabins in state parks, too? But then Ed Buckner, the former head of American Atheists, went camping and found a Bible […]

It looks like we are going to need a whole new division in our Legislative Shitmuffin contest for those goodly folks in our nation’s executive branches. And sorry Jan Brewer and Scott Walker and Rick Scott, but how on earth are you going to compete with Georgia’s own Nathan Deal, who is refusing to endorse […]

[Updated at 8:05 PM] We are getting very little news out of Suwanee, Georgia, where five firefighters who responded to a medical call are reportedly being held hostage by a gunman. Amazingly, it seems to have been at least three months since the last time this happened.

Well, if anybody can take a story about a segregated prom in the year of our lord two thousand thirteen, and turn it into a Nice Time story, it is the full-hearts folk at Yr Wonket. (We have finished PMSing, it would seem.) So, hi Rochelle, Georgia! How are you segregating your high school students […]

Hey remember that one movie, with the dudes, but they are straight, but they gay marry each other? It looked like it was going to be 90 minutes of gay-panic jokes, but then it was surprisingly sweet, if we recall correctly since we probably watched it on cold medicine because there is no way we […]

A social studies teacher at Kell High School in Marietta, Georgia, gave students a brilliant lesson in logical fallacies last week with this homework question in a “current issues” class: Find evidence for a comparison of Lenin/Stalin’s methods of changing Russia from a capitalist country to a command country to Obama’s methods of changing the […]

A guest post from your comrade Gary Legum. Here is the sum total of facts your Wonket knows about Emory University: it is located in Atlanta, and Emory’s current president, one James Wagner, is dumber than a bag of hammers. Okay, perhaps that last one is more opinion than fact. Here, let us read this […]
