FTW Friday, also-late-because-my-internet-got shut off edition!

Sorry that both this and WTF Wednesday were both a bit late. Wednesday I had to travel from my mom’s house to my apartment (across about 3 or so state lines) and Friday, due to a bit of a mix-up, the internet in my apartment was turned off. Working to get it all worked out, but it might take a few days. Be patient.

Now, on to the FTW-ness!

First, cheese rap!

I originally couldn’t decide if this was FTW or WTF. But after a few watches, I decided that it is definitely FTW. Why? ‘Cause I’m cool like that. Next video!!

Maine Man

It’s from the same people. I just like the bickering about who is “more Maine”, hahahahaha

Basically, Ireland passed a blasphemy ban. That’s the wtf part. But it’s FTW friday, so you know there’s gotta be some win, right? I’ll take the win right from their own website:

In this context we now publish a list of 25 blasphemous quotes, which have previously been published by or uttered by or attributed to Jesus Christ, Muhammad, Mark Twain, Tom Lehrer, Randy Newman, James Kirkup, Monty Python, Rev Ian Paisley, Conor Cruise O’Brien, Frank Zappa, Salman Rushdie, Bjork, Amanda Donohoe, George Carlin, Paul Woodfull, Jerry Springer the Opera, Tim Minchin, Richard Dawkins, Pope Benedict XVI, Christopher Hitchens, PZ Myers, Ian O’Doherty, Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor and Dermot Ahern.

Despite these quotes being abusive and insulting in relation to matters held sacred by various religions, we unreservedly support the right of these people to have published or uttered them, and we unreservedly support the right of any Irish citizen to make comparable statements about matters held sacred by any religion without fear of being criminalised, and without having to prove to a court that a reasonable person would find any particular value in the statement.

Awesome.
Well, I must be going. Lots to do, not a lot of time to do it…
