Dave!Lately I've been striving to look at things in a different light to reveal what I might be missing. I thought that this would be a good thing, because it would help me to better appreciate the things around me. Things that I see every day, but take for granted.

Unfortunately, it's had the exact opposite effect. All I seem to be revealing is that there's a lot of pointless, stupid, and wholly disappointing stuff out there that I tend to ignore. Apparently with good reason.

It's like that favorite restaurant you go to whenever you're drunk and needing some cheap eats to help soak up all that alcohol. Then one day you decide to eat there when you're sober... only to discover that the food is complete crap, and the only way anybody would ever want to eat there would be if they were too inebriated to be able to taste it.

I'm trying not to be too upset about it, but I can't help but be disappointed.

I guess some things just can't hold up to that kind of scrutiny.

Other things, on the other hand, don't require scrutiny to reveal their pointless disappointing stupidity. The revelation comes from the genius way that other people react to it.

This link is sheer brilliance. Which leads me to a sign of my own...

DAVETOON: Dave Hates Gags!
It's totally true! Look it up!

Confronting dumbassery with mockery to highlight just how fucking stupid it is... that's something I think God would appreciate. He invented a sense of humor, after all.

    That made even a crotchety old grumbler like me smile. Cut that out.

    God Loves Jello.

    How could he not?

    For a (very) brief period of time* I thought Fred Phelps might be a serious pastor who was just taking his misguided views to the extreme. He is just sick man.

    *For an even briefer period of time I thought he was in charge of the Impossible Mission Force and I’d wondered how he’d fallen so far from hero to nutbag.

  3. Avitable says:

    I love those signs. People should follow Westboro around and start doing that regularly.

  4. Finn says:

    How can one not love a smartass?

  5. Sybil Law says:

    Oh thank you for that link -those signs kick ass and made me smile today!

  6. martymankins says:

    Four words: I was promised donuts.

    Fucking genius.

  7. josh says:

    Those signz were great! If those West Boro Buttholez came to mah hometown, I would hold up “American Idol”-related signage about how Jennifer Hudson was ROBBED! I only support the most crucial and controversial of issues!

  8. Cindy says:

    I really appreciated this as a Wednesday morning funny. Because Wednesday mornings usually suck.

    I love the “I have a sign” sign. I’m going to have to figure out a good time to make use of that? Should have thought of that when the abortion protesters showed up on the Main St. of my small town.

  9. ha, I loved those signs.

  10. Walt says:

    That’s the best! I haven’t laughed like that in a while. We all need to make stupid signs just for emergency protests, keep them in the trunk of our cars!

  11. Brandon says:

    But where are the DOWN WITH PANTS! signs? If they make it to the Seattle area, I’m there.

  12. wolframcgn says:

    Great Pic. Can I use it to make a T-Shirt?
