The Sharknado List Of Awesome Stupid

Sharknado happened. It really did. A seminal event in our current pop culture exploded onto our TV screens then went away leaving us confused and laughing. Definitely laughing.

Obama admits to being black: Right wing goes nuts

The Ten Next SYFY Original Films

Then they break for their usual lunch of mescaline and LSD to ward off anything that approaches sanity.

In that spirit here are some suggestions from me:

Fox & Friends, Mr Rogers and a Poe's Law Moment

It is a typical day on Fox & Friends. Brian and Steve are the craven, spineless tools of corporate interests while Gretchen spews forth some of the most awful ideas to ever leave the mouth of a human like bi-pedal primate.

And then they get on the subject of Mr Rogers.

And now things are about to get real.
