I know it’s only July, but I figured out what I’m asking for for Christmas – an army of gun-toting monkey soldiers.
Hopefully I can be a good boy the rest of the year.
Here’s what’s new on HoboTrashcan.com this week:
Murphy’s Law – When animals attack
A Chinese newspaper recently reported that the Taliban trained an army of monkeys to fire automatic weapons at U.S. troops. Luckily, scientists have since debunked this myth, but Joel Murphy still thinks that animals may be useful on the battlefield, which is why he recommends we train Colorado black bears to drive our humvees.
Outside of the In-Crowd – A house full of lies
Most Full House fans grew up thinking that the Tanners were a perfect television family governed by wholesome values and a healthy appreciation for the importance of cleanliness. However, beneath the surface, the Tanners were much more troubled than we ever realized. This week, Courtney Enlow shows us who these characters really were.
Positive Cynicism – Another journey through the hate mail
Some writers like to take time out of their busy schedules to answer the pleasant messages that pour in from their adoring fans. Aaron R. Davis, on the other hand, prefers to respond to the hate mail he receives. This week, he opens up the big ol’ bag of hate and responds to each insult and personal attack.
Hobo Radio 142 – Oliver Stone sucks at life
Oliver Stone, who is working on a film that will supposedly allow viewers to “walk in Stalin’s shoes and Hitler’s shoes to understand their point of view,” recently claimed that Hitler is an “easy scapegoat,” Stalin was essentially a hero and the reason these facts are distorted is because of the “Jewish domination of the media.” It’s tough to find a silver lining in these hateful comments, but Joel Murphy and Lars have found one – it’s now okay to openly hate Oliver Stone. After years of hating his movies only to have people try to convince them Stone is a misunderstood genius, Joel and Lars will sleep better at night knowing that the pompous director is a terrible person who should be disliked.
