I still miss the old color scheme, though. There's just no pleasing some people.

This was at the bottom of the Minifafblog list. It's old and I'm probably the only one who hasn't seen it yet, but wow! Way to spin a joke out to 1000 comments!

The "about Giblets" link doesn't work. Probably installed by union labor.

While flipping rapidly through Firefox tabs just now, I misread the title of an Yglesias post as "Did Batman Oppose the War?" And my first thought was, of course not, Batman's a defense contractor.

10: Batman and Iron Man would presumably have teamed up in an all-star crossover to gin up some domestic terrorism by Iraqis.

11: First there would be a wacky misunderstanding leading to an issue-long fistfight, when they confront each other in competitive bidding for the construction contract for FOB Tehran

in they end they join forces to underbid Dick Cheney, and everything ends happily

Batman strikes me as much more an old-school America First dicipline-and-punish conservative -- Iron Man's the proper neo-con hero.

That thread goes to 11 hundred! (And it was indeed referenced here at Unfogged not too long ago during the NYTimes welcomefest.)

Has Fafblog been reading Unfogged?

What's So Funny About Prison Rape?

What's funny about it, see, is that the people being raped are total strangers who look different than you.

A novel point of legal ethics relating to recusal is discussed here, with odd alignments between the justices to boot.
