76. With Mormon weirdness, sometimes it is hard to tell

Seriously, some of what Mitt says would seem like a joke. Anyway, this is what clued me in:

"'Win the Fight' is the new rallying cry for today's Mormon teens," said Sister Janiece P. Pratt, Young Women general president. "Imagine a youth adviser teaching her girls about the moral dangers of skinny jeans. The girls might be tempted to roll their eyes. But now, the adviser can say, 'Come on, girls, WIN THE FIGHT!' And the girls can hold up their rings together and chant in unison, 'WTF!'"


Here is another parody, this guy just cracks me up, I hope you like it:

77. That is pretty much implied

Of those who would actually be concerned about excommunication, I am sure they wouldn't think of voting for anyone other than Rmoney. Conformity and obedience are stressed in the LDS religion.

No one would ever suspect in a million years what it really stands for.

You'd think the GOP members of the LDS would be a little more conscious about TLAs (three letter abbreviations). Didn't someone at the company that made the ring think to mention it to them?

On edit: I now see it's a joke, but I still want one.

Still find it funny though, so I won't apologize for posting it. Things being what they are these days, this really isn't enough of a stretch to have been an *obvious* satire. In fact, having just read the post about Rmoney telling kids to just "borrow money from their parents" to pay for college... well, you know.
