The Rev. Brendan Powell Smith

Brainwashed

Sunday, August 5th, 2001 - 5:58 pm PDT

Rev. Smith visited his doctor today for a routine brain washing. “I’m a pretty clean guy,” said Smith, “but there are always those hard-to-reach places which are best left to the experts.” The four hour procedure involved delicately removing the top of Smith’s skull, then using a powerful hose to wash away months of gummy dirt and buildup.”I feel 100% better,” noted Smith shortly afterward, “my head feels really clear now.” After doctors removed Smith’s brain and hand-scrubbed it, it was replaced and dried with high-powered air jets. His next appointment is scheduled for October.

But just last week we finally stumbled upon it. As it turns out, the cure for the summertime blues is penicillin.”

Not paying attention again

Thursday, July 26th, 2001 - 12:47 pm PDT

Rev. Smith has just revealed that for the past twenty minutes or so he has been “kind of off in [his] own little world” and “not really paying much attention”. He apologizes, and asks that if anybody said anything particularly worthwhile or interesting during that time, that they please repeat themselves, or at least perhaps summarize their main points, now that you have his full undivided attention.

Swiss nuked

The United States launched a massive nuclear strike against Switzerland today, wiping out most of its population of just over 7 million, and leaving their country a wretched wasteland.

The United States of America celebrated its independence today by issuing a proclamation of superiority to all other nations on earth, issuing an open challenge for any other country who thinks it’s got what it takes to go ahead and “step up to the plate”. “Our capitalist economy will consume you; our TV culture will subsume you; our military will doom you,” gloated president Bush. “Bring it on.”
