This Explains Everything


Click Cartoon for Larger Size
British astrophysicist Stephen Hawking is certain that there are alien beings out in the universe, but is now saying that it would be very dangerous for us to contact them.

He suggested that a visit from technologically advanced aliens would be much like Christopher Columbus arriving in America which, in Hawking's electronic words, "didn't turn out very well for the native Americans."

Hawking did not, however, make any jokes about Barack Obama being from outer space. And why would he? Just because of Obama's allegedly off-the-charts intelligence, his lack of human emotions, his distaste for our way of life, his mysterious past, his questionable birth certificate, and his passionate desire to give amnesty to illegal aliens?

Hey wait...

cartoonist Michael Ramirez is to political humor.

Its clear that Mr Hawking's anti-alien bias is born of racism.

With Obama, it's not vast intelligence, but half-vast intelligence. (Say it out loud if you need to!)

BTW, I share your admiration of Michael Ramirez. He's great! (You're no slouch yourself!)

Proof - too funny! (Obama's "half-vast" intelligence). If Stilton gets "comedy writer's block", he might have to hit you up for ideas.

There's only one thing that true about Obama BS amnesty program "United We Stand (with) Amnesty We Fall" www.anti-amnestyinternational.org pretty much tells it like it is and has the cure for this invasion of these domestic illegal alien terrorist. Bottomline. They gotta go, now now matter what it takes to lead them back home.

Stilton, I'm trying to find the RSS feed for Michael Ramirez so I can subscribe to his work just like I do with yours, but I'm coming up empty. Do you (or anyone) have a link to his RSS feed?

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

Alan Markus- I agree that Proof is a funny guy! But (fortunately or unfortunately) It's unlikely I'll run out of material until at least after November 2012!

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

Markus- Afraid I don't have an RSS link for Ramirez (but if anyone else posts it, I'll certainly be subscribing!)

Personally, I have difficulty 'laughing at' a guy, who while restricted to a wheelchair, has gained world renown AND tossed off his long suffering first wife for a much younger "nurse" (hmmmm, research turns up some rocks in THAT relationship as well)
Still and all - as usual, buddy has a point.

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

Pete(Detroit)- Technically we're not laughing at Hawking. That would just be wrong. But laughing with him is fine...even if it's our own imaginary version of Hawking.

And yes, we've also heard that Hawking's relationship with that younger nurse has been problematic. Which suggests that it's easier (in theory) to understand the universe than to understand women. (Important note to female readers: that's intended as a compliment!)

Wasn't it Obama who permitted to lapse or out right canceled all NASA manned space vehicles?
