"Peace for Our Timeline" from Kris Straub



Should work on web forums too.

From http://chainsawsuit.com/comic/2015/04/21/peace-for-our-timeline/

Tom Toles nails it today

I heard on NPR that when Rubio got on the plane after annoucning his run, that the person in the

seat beside him was Jeb Bush.

Jeb sucked all of the air out of the room and the interviewer resorted to asking Rubio about Jeb.

Even on Rubio's special day, he's in the shadow of a Bush.

I think TV's Frank said it best: "Marco Rubio got into the GOP presidential race early so he'd have more time to work on his concession speech." https://twitter.com/FrankConniff/status/587661916786585601

"Rand Paul is different from other GOP presidential candidates in the same way that diarrhea is

different from shit." Frank Conniff

The BBC' Spaghetti Harvest

This is probably the best April Fools joke of all time

The spaghetti tree hoax is a famous 3-minute hoax report broadcast on April Fools' Day 1957 by the BBC current affairs programme Panorama. It told a tale of a family in southern Switzerland harvesting spaghetti from the fictitious spaghetti tree, broadcast at a time when this Italian dish was not widely eaten in the UK and some Britons were unaware that spaghetti is a pasta made from wheat flour and water. Hundreds of viewers phoned into the BBC, either to say the story was not true, or wondering about it, with some even asking how to grow their own spaghetti trees. Decades later CNN called this broadcast "the biggest hoax that any reputable news establishment ever pulled."

"Christian family band who sang about End Times arrested after deadly gunfight in Arizona Walmart

parking lot"

An evangelical Christian family band that believed in a coming Jesus Apocalypse was arrested last Saturday following a deadly gunfight outside a Walmart parking lot in Cottonwood, Arizona. Nine suspects were involved in a violent brawl that left at least one person dead. Suspects arrested from the Gaver family included Peter Gaver, 55, and his sons, Jeremiah, 29, and Nathaniel, 27, all from the small-time Christian band Matthew 24 Now.


The Arizona Department of Public Safety reports that Cottonwood police officers arrived at the Walmart after a store employee was assaulted during an encounter with the family. The Gavers had been living out of a large van with Idaho license plates in the parking lot for the past few days, and entered the retail store to use the toilet when trouble ensued.
