Since it’s been scientifically proven that Monday afternoons are the worst possible time to indulge in Serious!, Weighty! and Substantive! Blogging, it’s probably in your interests that I present the best light-headed ephemera the internet has to offer. 3, 2, 1, Go!

  • “Liberal bloggers have made their first arrest”. No, really.
  • So how did the pro-Hillary holdouts at No Quarter respond to the news that one of their delusional smear-merchants had been cruelly incapacitated? With an explosion of CAPS LOCK:

WE ARE THE CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! WE WILL NOT ALLOW WHAT HAPPENED TO GERMANY HAPPEN TO US! WE SAID “NEVER AGAIN” AND WE MEANT IT! IT IS YOUR DUTY, EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU, TO PASS THE WORD, INFORM YOUR FAMILY, YOUR FRIENDS, YOUR NEIGHBORS, YOUR CHURCH FAMILY, YOUR BOWLING GROUP, EVERYONE. WE MUST AND WE WILL STOP THE GESTAPO ATTACKS ON OUR CITIZENS. WE ARE NOT RACISTS! WE ARE AMERICANS! FIGHT BACK NOW! WE MAY NOT GET ANOTHER CHANCE!

  • YES, WE MUST NEVER RELIQUISH OUR FUNDAMENTAL RIGHT TO SMEAR A CANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES AS A CRACK-SMOKING HOMOSEXUAL! IT’S WHAT LINCOLN WOULD’VE WANTED!! Sorry, I don’t know what came over me.
  • So if he’s not really a crack-smoking homosexual, there must be some crap things about Barack Obama, right? Absolutely. His bowling skills, for one. And his bizarre love of ethanol. Go here for reasons why it’s one of the biggest scams in American politics.
  • Since it’s not very often that a global megablog goes out of its way to praise the many virtues of the late, great Fred Dibnah, I feel a duty to inform everyone whenever it happens. Like now. Who knows, next week they might start posting clips from Last of the Summer Wine. We can but hope.
  • From the same people who brought us “Anna Kournikova is attractive and therefore the greatest tennis player of all time”, an important announcement: “Men! Scantily-clad young women are wearing revealing outfits, grunting and sweating just for your benefit!
  • For those of you care about the actual tennis, the Beeb is streaming all the games live. Thank God for the license fee.
  • Rafid Ahmed ‘Curveball’ Alwan, an ‘intelligence’ source behind the greatest military blunder in modern history, spends an entire interview trying to clear his name and in the process reveals himself to be a fantasist. Not his greatest PR moment, really.
  • Ezra Klein points out the awesome silliness of having political debates via Twitter.
  • In memory of the comedian George Carlin, Vanity Fair links to an hour-long HBO special that’ll stay online until someone discovers it & takes it down for copyright infringement.

And finally….

  • Possibly the best ever love song to be set during the American Civil War:
