Vol. 4, No. 23 -- June 5, 2011
We'll hear three comedy routines poking fun at the lapses of Christian congregants and clergy.I'll read an expose' of rampant, socially sanctioned homosexual pedophilia in Afghanistan--justified, practitioners claim, by Islamic Law. And we'll hear some unintentionally hilarious public-service announcements from the Defense Department (ca. 1960) on how to survive a nuclear war.
The comedy routines are by (in order) Neal DeGrasse Tyson, Jimmy Tingle, and Rowan Atkinson.
Below: A "dancing boy" of Afghanistan.

Music added: Dr Strangelove and the Fallouts, "Love that Bomb!" (mid-1960s).
Thanks to Scooter, of "The innerSide" on KPFT-FM, for the comedy routines by Neal DeGrasse Tyson and Rowan Atkinson. Thanks to King Daevid MacKenzie for the song and the old Civil Defense announcements.
