The Nietzsche Family Circus

This morning I visited GNXP (one of my favorite blogs), and from there arbitrarily clicked on the link to Darwin Catholic. I saw his post on The Nietzsche Family Circus, and I was amazed. Most of the time the new strip -- which is a random Nietzsche quotation combined with a random Family Circus drawing --- makes so much sense that it is hard to believe it is random.

Read them all.

Are Italians Europeans?

"Europe and Italy," by Bruno Bozzetto, Especial Bruno Bozzetto, http://www.infonegocio.com/xeron/bruno/italy.html (from Wang Xiaofang courtesy of Lady of tdaxp).

Especially important in light of my recent Odyssey through the American South, note that everything that "Bruno" finds definitive of Italy is, in fact, analogous to Dixie

Mama mia! Europa e l'Italia!

Yes and No is also quite hilarious.

Music Video of George Bush Singing "Sunday, Bloody Sunday"

I don't always agree with his politics, but Rx is a musical genius. His music video of George W. Bush singing "Sunday, Bloody Sunday" must be seen to be believed:


The best George W. songs are definitely Happy Christmas (previously featured on tdaxp), My Generation, and HIV/AIDS. Also some good tunes by John Kerry and Martin Luther King, Jr.

Watch it now.

Free Kosovo, Free Beer: A tdaxp Fatwa

The feared freedom fighter, tdaxp al Mujahid, read Chirol's post on the coming European microstates with interest. tdaxp al-Mujahid thus chose to ally with the British and Americans, and demand liberation and independence for the proud Kosovar people. "We are all Albanians!" tdaxp shouted to the camera, as his demands prepare to travel the blogospheric info-waves:

However, tdaxp al-Mujahid knew this must be done peacefully...

An Epistemology of Their Own: Why Iraqis Should Embrace Critical Theory

The wording of the final in Scopes was as hilarious as the concept was brilliant. Imagine you've been hired to teach political science in Iraq, it begins, You're tickled pink. But what epistemological approaches are essential to teach to understand the real world of Iraqi politics?.

The full question is several paragraphs long, It provided a fun way for students to synthesize the various approaches that been taught in this class. Below is my Scopes & Methods final, which argues that the most appropriate method would be Critical Theory. I tried to work in some humor, as well. Sorry for that.

Anti-Semitic Cartoons (Jewish Racist Cartoon Contest)

tdaxp needs equal time. I've mocked Muslims, Catholics, and Protestants. But no Jewish humor.

The Iranians have called on this to end. They're right:

Muhammed Emoticons and Smileys (Yahoo's Bans the letters "Allah")

"Yahoo!Mail bans Allah and Dirty Harry Handles," by John Oates, The Register, 20 February 2006, http://www.theregister.co.uk/2006/02/20/yahoo_upsets_religious/ (from Slashdot).

"2nd Russian Paper Shut in Cartoon Furor," by Steven Myers, New York Times, 21 February 2006, http://www.nytimes.com/glogin?URI=http://www.nytimes.com/2006/02/21/international/europe/21russia.html&OQ=_rQ3D1&OP=3434b636Q2FQ3BjvyQ3Ba@4ge@@bQ2BQ3BQ2B22JQ3B2Q2BQ3BQ2B!Q3BQ5EQ5BbveQ5BRbQ5E@Q5BRmQ3Bv1e@VvQ3BQ2B!e1ggQ5ERiQ24bdm.

Yahoo has joined the dhimmis and refuses to allow screen-names with "allah" in them. tdaxp's dream of having a screen-name that references the death threats I've received from Islamic militants thus ends:

As Howard Dean says, "Inshallah" -- banned by Yahoo!

So tdaxp, must respond!

Anti-Anarchy, Pro-tdaxp Violence Spreads...

It all started with the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten, working with the hate-mongers at Coming Anarchy, published the racist, demeaning, and offensive cartoons that insulted the Seal of the Blogs, tdaxp


Since then there has been no peace.

The millions declare: "in tdaxp we trust!"
