The Cardiff Giant“Look, Reverend, your book may have some literary value, but if I were to take it at face value, I would call it the most ludicrous thing ever put to print.”
The year was 1869. New York tobacco tycoon, George Hull, found himself in a heated debate with a Methodist priest. The debate took place at a Methodist revival meeting, which Hull decided to attend just so he could humor himself. Whatever humor he was seeking, the source was certainly not the Reverend.
“I hope God forgives you for those words, Mr. Hull,” the Reverend said while pointing at George with contempt.
“Reverend, you have studied the Christian faith for your entire life. Surely you don’t actually believe that the Bible should be taken literally.”
“I don’t see how I wouldn’t.”
“The Bible makes references to happenings that couldn’t have possibly happened in any time period. I believe there was a verse in Genesis abou
Banned Golden Age Cartoons and Modern SocietyWhen television became a new, exciting medium, many cartoonists decided to take advantage of this new opportunity by airing their old theatrical shorts during the daily broadcast. However, when they sent in their respective packages, some of them were rejected for insensitive content, primarily cartoons depicting minorities in an offensive light. Today, these rules are still in place. Television stations refuse to play these cartoons, and debates have sprung over what to do with these films and how the modern eye perceives them. Regardless of where these films are shown or distributed or how people perceive them, the racially insensitive cartoons of the Golden Age can, at their most basic core, inform viewers about the background and ideas that were prevalent during the time of their creation.
This will mostly focus on the Warner Brothers cartoons, since these types of gags were very prevalent in those cartoons, and the controversies surrounding them are more do
The Race With Two Endings“And here they come, folks! The racers are approaching the finish line!”
On a bright summer’s day in the middle of August in the tiny town of Twinnisville, NJ, the 34th annual Twins Street Marathon was nearing its end.
Fighting for the lead was 19-year-old Bowling High student, Pat Murphy, and his long-time enemy, the captain of the Bowling High track team, Stan Derkly. Ever since they fought over the last copy of Good Burger at Blockbuster all of those years ago, the two have been at each other’s throats, constantly trying to one-up each other in everything.
Pat had spent the last few weeks training for this marathon with his father, Ted Murphy. Ted was the captain of the Bowling High track team back in 1976. During those weeks, he put Pat on the treadmills, the exercise machines, the indoor tracks at gym, the sidewalks throughout the town, the works. He had grown happy with the fact that his son had taken an interest in something
I Hope You Don't CareHello, neighbor
I hope you don’t care
But the sun was rising
And I wanted to stare
So I burnt down your house
Right down to the ground
So I can now see
The sun, oh so round-
Eternal Youth by Harold WallEternal Youth
By Harold Wall
To those of you
Who have risen from the soil
Either during or before my sprouting
I cry at your insulting words
Not out of sorrow
Nor out of regret
But out of laughter
For all who complain at my sapling-esque lifestyle
Saying that it is against the rules
Of the universal garden
Look at yourselves
Have you been so blinded
By these so-called "rules"
That none of you realize
That you've turned this beautiful garden
Into a lifeless patch of ice?
Perhaps you forgot
The eternal rain and sunshine
You received as a sapling
Perhaps you forgot
Your first sight of the garden
How it was brimming with life
How every flower was joined leaf-in-leaf
Singing a beautiful harmony
And that harmony was given a name
A name whose beauty shone
Through simplicity alone
Though the saplings grew
Into beautiful, vibrant flowers
The path they chose to take
Contrasted with their beauty
They dove into what
Those damned "rules" of the garden called
A state where the rain an
Sight of the SibchiOh my gosh! No! No, I said I wouldn't do this again. I'm sorry, I'll be out in in why aren't you screaming? Why aren't you running away? Wow, you're the first person I've met who hasn't done any of those things. Hey, could you take some time to listen to me? I've been having these problems lately.
I don't understand what's wrong with people. All I do is try to help them, but for some reason, I only end up making things worse. What is it about me that make people act this way? I don't look dangerous it all! I'm a green ball trapped inside a blue ball with a face painted on it, for Pete's sake!
My name is Sibchi, I'm five years old, and I live somewhere between this one small cloud to the left and this bigger cloud that kind of looks like a fish on the right. You've probably never seen me before, and there's a pretty good re
Seven Types of Readers I Hate.1. The Woman-Child.
How to spot them: This is pretty obvious by the name- they are the Reader that acts like a child, usually when they're supposed to be at least in their teens or sometimes even vague "young adult" age. They typically have a really child-like way of speaking, usually making up really lame insults that the male they're paired up with will chuckle indulgently at. They tend to whine like a child, pout, stick out their tongue to signify annoyance, and generally play up the "cutesy" factor for all it's worth. They also can't seem to go two minutes without giggling, yelling or crying- and if they do cry, it usually is to make the male character cave in and do whatever she wants, after which she will miraculously stop crying.
Why they are annoying: Look, I'm not saying there aren't childish people out there, or even simply people who have bouts of acting like a child...but this Reader basically shouldn't be allowed out on their own. They act in a manner that would be irritat
One Night at Freddy's (H20 DeliriousXReader)
"Uggh my head" You groaned when you woke up to a headache. Sitting up you saw the flicker of dim lights and you were lying on a black and white tiled floor. Slowly you got up and noticed your friends, brother and boyfriend passed out on the ground around you. The friends you saw we're MiniLadd, Nogla, BasicallyIDoWrk, SoCloseToToast, Wildcat and Lui. You cocked an eyebrow when you saw your boyfriend Delirious and your brother Vanoss cuddling under the table.
"Mini wake up!" You hissed kicking him in the side lightly.
"Nooooooooo 5 more minutes" He whined turning over.
"Dude wake up now somethings not right" You said shaking him till he woke up.
"What?" He asked as you helped him up.
"Look around" You replied panicking slightly. Mini looked around and saw everyone was dressed like their avatars would wear and they were in a control room.
"Why are Delirious and Vanoss cuddling under a table?" Mini asked first.
"Why does it look like we're in the control room from Five Nights at Fre

Eiko couldn't help but be impressed.

"Ok (Y/n) we have one job. Survive the night. If we dont we get butt fucked by a bunch of creepy animatronics according to the guy on the phone" Vanoss declared standing in front of you as Gordon from Half Life.
"So get murdered by a rouge Delirious or get butt fucked by creepy animatronics?" You summed up.
"Basically yes" Vanoss replied looking at your character costume which was Sally from the Nightmare Before Christmas (Cause Sally is the shit deal with it).
"Oh we're going to die tonight" You shook her head. Slowly you and Vanoss left the camera room wielding a crowbar and wooden spoon.
"Muahahahaha" Delirious's laughed creepily which echoed around the map.
"Fuck this is scary already" Vanoss said looking at all the creepy animatronics.
"Where am I Vanoss? (Y/n)?" Delirious said
"You're going to be dead soon Delirious" Vanoss replied confidently.
"Ok. Evan check the halls near the janitors closet I'll check the bathroom" You stated holding up the wooden spoon encase Delirious
Another Mermaid BalloonPrincess Shirahoshi is a gigantic mermaid. She's about 55 feet in height, which makes her 7-8 times bigger than your average mermaid! Would you believe she's only the youngest in her family? Can you imagine how big her parents and older siblings must be?! Despite her enormous size, she gets easily frightened and cries whenever something upsets her. However, she does have a companion to protect her from danger. A companion that comes in the form of a giant shark named Megalo! Whenever there's trouble, she hides inside Megalo's mouth until the danger has passed. However, what happens when her companion isn't around?
One day, Shirahoshi was in one of her crying fits in her room. The reason being that Megalo swam away and hasn't returned in days.
Shirahoshi: *crying* "Oh, Megalo! You must be alone, confused, and scared out of your mind! Who's mouth will I hide in the next time there's danger?"
Just then, an unknown figure tossed a large package through her win
Hey Delirious (H20 DeliriousXReader)

"It's going to be so awesome none of us will survive it! Basically is going to blow up that shitty car aaaaaaall the way down there! Then all the cars will blow up muahahaha!" He finished with a laugh stopping facing outwards towards the massive line of cars. Delirious was wearing his regular hockey mask and blue hoody with jeans. Vanoss his red jacket and shades, Lui was wearing only boxers and a monkey mask, Wildcat his pig mask and suit, Mini was in a pimp suit while you were dressed in a striped black and white suit that looked like Beetlejuices.
"YOU READY BASICALLY?!" Delirious yelled louder than necessary.
"YEAH!" Basically yelled back equally as loud standing by the car wearing a pair of boxers with hearts on them and a tank top.
"Light the sonofabitch up!" Delirious laughed menacingly. Basically stood back and pulled out
An Expecting MotherOne day at the park, there was a young woman who was sitting on the park bench. She had a noticeably large belly. I walked over to the woman, and I asked her if she were having a baby. Before she could reply, an odd thing happened. A hand popped out from her mouth, and it was covered in stomach acid. Before I could react, the young woman promptly swallowed the hand back down into her stomach. She then looked at me and said, "No, I'm not having a baby, I'm having twins!" Before I could run away, the woman grabbed me by my shoulders, and she pulled me into the direction of her mouth. Before I could say anything, I was submerged head-first in the woman's mouth. I was soon promptly swallowed. The woman then let out a long belch, and gently patted her swollen belly.

How OHSHC Came to Be -Parody-A man from Japan was sitting in his basement one day thinking of his next big idea. Suddenly, he got a call from his gay cousin, and he told him that he recently got engaged to a nice man from Osaka. The Japanese man happened to be extremely homophobic and reacted to it negatively. In order to vent his anger, he began drawing the most hurtful stereotypes for gay people he could think of. Luckily, his mind wasn't too warped, so the most hurtful thing he could come up with "OMG SO FABULOUS." After his venting was over with, he began drawing the first chapter of his new manga series.
A week later, he showed the idea to the CEO of the publishing company. He looked at it and said, "What the fuck is this shit?" After endless bitching for 2 hours straight, the man packed up and left the office. As he was leaving, his hateful drawing flew out of his briefcase. The CEO took one look at it and said

My friends used to call William "Ironman" because the first time we kissed he got a nosebleed and the taste of his blood haunted me for a long time after it. We'd only been twelve years old and apparently the anxiety spiked his blood pressure to the point of combustion... I remember that when we were forced to take sex ed a few years later we were divided into separate classes for boys and girls, in case a diagram of an ovary was too risqué and we became animalistic and started clawing at each other in our seats, but nonetheless when our teacher Ms Jacobs had explained to us what an erection was in my mind all I could picture was the blood rushing to his nose and then the slash of cranberry across my blouse.
With the idea planted in his mind it didn't take long for William's hands to start wandering, but the image persisted. Every time I thought about just letting it happen I wondered what would happen if he got too excite
