Smith diagnosed with pedophobia

Wednesday, September 19th, 2007 - 5:30 pm PDT

After years of displaying telltale symptoms such as not finding infants even remotely cute, extreme displeasure at being around crying and screaming babies, viewing toddlers as far more annoying than endearing, and an utter lack of interest in children, The Rev. Smith was finally diagnosed by a team of doctors and psychologists this week as a pedophobe. This separates Smith from the vast majority of human adults who display an irrational love of and interest in children, a dominant group doctors refer to as pedophiles.

Congress protests reduction in powers with a non-binding resolution

Thursday, September 13th, 2007 - 1:21 am PDT

An ever-weakening and increasingly irrelevant US Congress this week passed a non-binding resolution that, while having no legal effect, voices a feeble protest to their own complicity in yielding all but the most ceremonial powers of the legislative branch over to the executive branch of the US government. Tomorrow the senate is scheduled to vote on President Bush’s proposal that all of Congress’s future legislation be legally non-binding. The measure has the support of key Democrats and is expected to pass.

Mystery of disappearing frogs and bees solved

Tuesday, September 4th, 2007 - 3:34 pm PDT

Over the past several years, scientists have struggled to explain the dramatic and alarming declines witnessed among both frog and bee populations. Various proposed theories point to global warming, environmental toxins, or fungal pathogens as the root cause, but it now appears that there is a simpler albeit far more alarming solution to the mystery. The Rev. Brendan Powell Smith today confirmed that for the past ten years he has been stockpiling both frogs and bees for use in a future God-directed plague against mankind. “You might notice a dip in lice populations as well,” noted Smith.

Poll: 76% of GOP senators still deny being gay

Tuesday, August 28th, 2007 - 3:50 am PDT

Despite mounting evidence to the contrary and an ever-growing percentage of the population that is no longer fooled, a new poll taken this week found that 76% of Republican senators and 64% of Republicans in the House of Representatives still publicly deny being gay. “Homosexuality is a grave sin,” offered senator and presidential candidate Sam Brownback of Kansas, “and it must be resisted at all times, at all costs.” The senator was later spotted ducking into Dupont Circle area bar Titan’s Ramrod.

God has cure for AIDS

Monday, August 13th, 2007 - 5:40 am PDT

While mortal scientists have struggled in vain for over two decades to devise a cure for Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome, this week Almighty God revealed that He has, and has had all along, a cure for AIDS that could instantly relieve the suffering of some 38.6 million people worldwide. He further revealed that He will not share or give knowledge of that cure to humans, and that we will just have to take His word for it that it is all for the best that AIDS victims continue to suffer slow, agonizing deaths, their families and loved ones are torn apart with grief, and that scientists continue to pour their time and energy into a fruitless quest.

This Tuesday’s direct-to-DVD release of The Porn Ultimatum will mark the 412th time that The Rev.

God considering another mass killing

Wednesday, July 11th, 2007 - 5:40 am PDT

Two and a half years after striking Southeast Asia with a massive tsunami that killed more than 200,000 men, women, and children, God is reportedly dissatisfied with the lasting effects the disaster and is weighing his options. “I really thought the tsunami would change things. It seemed like the right thing to do at the time. But now everything is pretty much back to the way it was,” said God, “except for those 200,000 people who are dead. They’re still dead.” God has kept a low profile since late 2004, only sending out the occasional hurricane, cholera epidemic, or helping sports teams to victory, but now says He is seriously considering “something big”.

The Rev. Brendan Powell Smith shocked family, friends, and fans today with an announcement that he has two months to put his affairs in order. “For far, far too long,” stated Smith at an emotional press conference this morning, “my affairs have been left in a state or terrible disorder. I am now giving myself two months to do all that I humanly can to return them to something more closely resembling an orderly state.” To prepare for this monumental task, Smith has purchased several large file cabinets, some accounting software, and a new mop. “I never thought this would happen, not to Brendan,” stated one close friend, “he’s so disorganized.”
