After this post, and this one, well, three in less than a 24-hour time period makes a theme, doesn’t it?

Just read Academic Boneyards, the current issue of Credenda Agenda.

A sample of typical satire:
“FoxNews Responsible for Global Warming
NEW YORK—New studies looking at warming oceans and melting Arctic ice find FoxNews broadcasts emit really hot television signals, Tim Moore of the Scripts Institution of Oceanography said.

Speaking at an annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, Moore said, “I’m surprised people’s eyes haven’t melted inside their heads while watching FoxNews.

Oh, and while you’re at it, Doug Wilson, the guy who made possible my Credenda Agenda addiction before the “worldwide web” became a buzz phrase, has a blog now: Blog and Mablog. (See Ezekiel 38 and 39, and Revelation 20 for the joke, if you’re not already familiar with the reference to Gog and Magog.)
