American Horror Story

We offer neither explanation nor apology. There’s a strong chance we’ve fallen prey to an Evil Image-Rehabilitation Meme, but we don’t care. Because we can’t help watching the damn thing. Over and over.

Except the last part. You can have that back.

Bring Out Your Dread!

Don’t forget the Zombie repellant.Title: “Ebola Survival Handbook: A Collection of Tips, Strategies, and Supply Lists From Some of the World’s Best Preparedness Professionals”

Author: Lost Arts Publishing

Rank: 42

Blurb: “Ebola. Even the name of the virus conjures up mental images of a gruesome, agonizing, bloody death. Anyone who has scanned the news headlines lately has, at the very least, an inkling that a horrible disease is on the loose. It’s anyone’s best guess how soon this becomes a pandemic on American soil. While the Center for Disease Control and the World Health Organization have both expressed serious concerns that we are on the brink of disaster, border enforcement agencies seem blithely unconcerned. It’s really up to you to protect your family.”

Review: “Tells you what supplies you need, including how to care for your sick when the hospitals are full (and they will be) and dispose of your dead.”

The War Between the States of Mind

Aren’t people who try to stop necessary wars called “Appeasers”?Title: “Stop the Coming Civil War: My Savage Truth”

Author: Michael Weiner Savage

Rank: 21

Blurb: “According to Michael Savage, OUR NATION IS IN REAL TROUBLE and the seeds of a second conflagration have been sown. Not between the states — but between true patriots who believe in our nation’s founding principles and those he believes are working every day to undermine them and change the very nature of the country.”

Review: “What makes this book great is that it doesn’t repeat Republican talking points that you would get from Wall Banger and other hacks on Fox News.”

1973 Argonne Rebels! FUCK Yeah!

Savage, relentless artistry demonstrated by a horn line of kids mostly under the age of 16 and mostly female.

I make no excuses for the drum line but fuckin’ A these little kids ripped your heart out, ate it, burped and then ran back to do their chores.

Holy Fuck!

If you’re not ripping your clothes off during Malaguena, you have no pulse.

Chronicle of His Death Mistold

Bill O’Reilly’s military service: None.Title: “Killing Patton: The Strange Death of World War II’s Most Audacious General”

Authors: Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard

Rank: 3

Blurb: “General George S. Patton, Jr. died under mysterious circumstances in the months following the end of World War II. For almost seventy years, there has been suspicion that his death was not an accident — and may very well have been an act of assassination.”

Review From Somebody Who Could Use a Good Slap: “They surmise that the General’s outspokenness about his controversial views on postwar security, particularly his animosity toward the Soviets, our erstwhile allies, might have made him a target for assassination. They cast a suspicious eye toward various potential culprits from Josef Stalin to wartime espionage czar ‘Wild Bill’ Donovan and a colorful OSS operative, Douglas Bazata, who claimed later in life to have murdered Patton.” —John McCain
