Your Tax Dollars: $24,953 To Research ‘Meaning Of Life’






” What is the meaning of life? The answer is worth $24,953, at least according to the National Endowment for the Humanities, a taxpayer-funded federal agency that is providing an educational grant to study the question.

“What is the good life and how do I live it?” Well, for $25,000 in tax dollars, NEH has tasked someone with finding out.

Sessions has personally taken a closer look at the NEH grant program and now has “questions” about some of the awards that have been granted, including one for $24,999 to determine, “What is a monster?

Here are a few more examples of recent educational program grants:

— Why are we interested in the past? $24,803

— Why are people bad? $23,390

— What is belief? $24,526

— Why do humans write? $24,774

The NEH spends about $150 million annually, though Republicans recently proposed slashing its budget by half.”


We can save the taxpayers $25k . The State is the monster . Plain and simple .













From Cracked Readers … Who Else ?



” Directors put a lot of hard work into their movies. And a small percentage of those people put more hard work into their films than any sane human being should.

” When I watched this the first time, I was hypnotized and a teary mess. The second and third times, things didn’t change. Their story is amazing. Watch it. Share it. Enjoy the wondrous and happy ending. And remember not to take things for granted. If you aren’t hooked by 1:30, you are a stronger person than I am.”







Exclusive: Hear Eric Clapton’s New Album ‘Old Sock’ First




” Eric Clapton has never shied away from giving credit where it’s due, and his latest project “Old Sock” is no exception. His 21st solo studio album features the guitar great’s take on 10 favorite songs from throughout his life, along with two new tunes.

“Old Sock,” due March 12 on Bushbranch/Surfdog, has plenty of more familiar fare, too: the new song “Gotta Get Over” is a big, bluesy rocker soaked in electric guitar and soulful backing vocals, while Clapton limbers up his slide-guitar skills on a version of Leadbelly’s classic “Goodnight Irene.” “

Cartman Shrugged: The Invisible Gnomes and the Invisible Hand in South Park

Cantor, Paul A.

” Comedy makes fun of people—that is its nature.

Thus the people who condemn South Park today for being offensive need to be reminded that comedy is by its very nature offensive.It derives its energy from its transgressive power, its ability to break taboos, to speak the unspeakable. Comedians are always pushing the envelope, probing to see how much they can get away with in violating the speech codes of their day. Comedy is a social safety valve. We laugh precisely because comedians momentarily liberate us from the restrictions that conventional society imposes on us. We applaud comedians because they say right out in front of an audience what, supposedly, nobody is allowed to say in public. Paradoxically, then, the more permissive American society has become, the harder it has become to write comedy. As censorship laws have been relaxed and people have been allowed to say and show almost anything in movies and television—above all, to deal with formerly taboo sexual material—comedy writers, such as the creators of South Park, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, must have begun to wonder if there is any way left to offend audiences.

The genius of Parker and Stone was to see that in our day a new frontier of comic transgression has opened up because of the phenomenon known as political correctness.”
