Dear UDers,
I write this in the hope that it is spotted by one of you surfacing to take on a little reality before deep diving back into the depths of Tard. Whilst this may seem critical, please take it in a positive way; I only want to keep the quality of your unintentional hilarity high.

1. Understand your market

UD is a bit like the O'Reilly factor in that you're not really connected with reality in any meaningful way and most of your viewers tune in to laugh at you. Embrace you veiwership and cater to their needs. I've noticed no "best month evaaaaaaaar!" posts for UD recently, you're going to have to lower your game / raise your tard to push on from here. I therefore offer these helpful hints:

2. More of this, please

<> SLoT type stuff. I love Fundy SLoT: "all particles must runaway from each other and shit". Tell me more! Invent new laws and name them after yourselves (Sal!)
<> Dave's Diets. Yes I know this was from FTK's now defunct blog, but it was the human interest story UD needs. Fatty boom-boom Springer can opine about how he's lost 45 pounds this week eating rice and berries and is no longer a bloater, whilst cleverly working in "fuzzy logic rice cookers". It's got emotional hooks, 'n shit.
<> ANTI ACLU posts. These have always been good. The big guns come out and get very, very upset about things they don't understand. Let's face it; if the ACLU do it, you don't like it.
<> Bible passages. Nothing supports creation science teaching to kids like the bible.
<> Telling us about waterloo. How long? How will NDE crumble? What will the world be like? Will there still be atheists?


3. Less of this, please


<> Dembski hiding. When experts from the world of stats come and want to talk CSI, he's nowhere to be found. If someone posts about a beaver that looks like Darwin, or other minutia, he's got comments two and three posted in about one minute.
<> General Science Denying. Deadly DCA was good, global warming was bad. You're too hit and miss, guys. Go with what you (don't) know.
<> Denyse. Yes Yes she's got books to sell, doesn't write so well and believes in hell. The humour is only generated because she outranks Davetard. But her writing is so clunky as to be offensive.
<> Using Google to search for the word "design" in biology articles.

Thanks fellas, and keep up the bad work!

Under the "More Of This" Heading:

More Predictions Please!

From the Wedge Doc's crushed ambitions to Dembski's Death Of Darwinism in 10 Years, (now down to 9 - thank you Kristine for keeping track) you have ALWAYS failed to produce anything... except for more Bwa-Ha Ha's from us.

Who among us now does not remember DaveTard "hisself's" pre-Dover prediction with a smile in our hearts?    

Who among us now does not recall with equal joy Demsbksi's ID will have a Major Laboratory soon?
(Did he mean "lavatory" perhaps?

So, all you Loyal UDers.. please predict!  We know you can do it.  It's front-loaded, so let it all out - the Designer clearly designed it that way.

Under the "Less Of This":

Please do not show any more pictures of Denyse.

Ever.  

Thank You.

Yes, yes yes but what about D.T.'s rampage in the the pahhandle with all those old heifers? Who wants to know about boogers, luddites and logical falluscies. Give me the juice. How many lap dancers and when, no weasling.

One shot of double malt alcopop for his Dumpskiness and a good spanking from his pumped biceped and hairsuited mom and he goes to water. St. Johns (The Baptist) water. D.T. is a mommys pussy.

Aww, J-Dog, she's been trying out a new style - c'mon, give her a break. I salute sistah Denyse for breaking out - girl, let's you and I meet in the Ladies Room sometime (they let me in because they're polite) and once I'm done with you I'll send you back to your table alone and stand nodding at the door as you're trailed by ten blood-hounds. Life is short, bland-n-beautiful is boring (you men), and we're all evolution's children after all! :)

All very true and commenable ID Pleasurian wife number....ooooh I lose count.

It is a person's right and privilege to be ugly. Long gone are the days when women or men are judged solely on their physical appearance. The shallow whims and mores of the terminally vapid fashionistas appeal to those without the substance to realise that beauty, true beauty, comes deep from within. Anyone can be ugly.

That said, some people do abuse the privilege. After all beauty is only skin deep but ugly goes right to the bone!

I want to see more posts from Gil and BarryA like "My career as a (lawyer / 'lectrical engineer / railway conductor) gives me speshul insight into why all the scientists are wrong" and less Denyse O'Leary.

More of Davescot's completely out-to-lunch physics lectures would be good too.

Okay, so those 10 blood-hounds be walkin' backwards then.

Hell, I talk outta my butt all the time and let my tongue do the walking doncha know. :)

How about more of: If Mount Rushmore was of those president's butts not faces, would we detect design then? After all, butts look more like mountains than Mohammed, but don't the UDudes worship the butt-putt (flagellum)? Paradox. Love a par-a-dox.

I'm laughing so hard I gotta sit down (how, where)? ;)

A re-quest for the holey grail?

*French accent* Well, I'll tell Dembski, but I don't think he'll be too keen - he's already got one, you see.

*Whisper* Dembski thinks he's already got one! *AtBCers muffle their guffaws.*

I'd like to see more of Dembski.  He's not so bright but manages to hide that fact behind all of his various degrees.  What is he now, a research guy at a 3rd rate fundy school for future ministers?

The sychophants at UD lap up his act as if he had something to do with their everlasting life thereafter.  The "Dr Dembski" stuff just kills me.

I miss his scholarly farting videos and nobody is as good a liar while portraying themselves as a persecuted victim as Dembski.  I'd like to read more of him at UD.

I forgot, MORE Jesus and afterlife talk please.  And how about some more deep philosophical debates such as do darwinists go to heaven kind of stuff.  Does Jesus hate those who reject ID kind of stuff.

Thanks in advance!

I think that what they would really, really like is for the knuckelhead UD posters (and moderator) to be more like us, and for ATBC posters to be more like the cretins that habituate UD.

It's the only chance they have of winning actually.

And it is NOT going to happen. ?We're too smart and good-looking, and they're too dumb and have body-odor and/or excessive cheesy poof stains.

Man, it must suck to be them. ?Believing in a Designer that built them for planned obsolescence and the scrap heap of history.

This is what I asked for:

 
Quote (Reciprocating Bill @ Aug. 21 2007,21:30)

- Apologies that aren't really apologies from The Big Head.
- 404 errors (same link).
- Occasions for apologies that aren't really apologies from The Big Head.
- 404 errors (same link).
- Praying marines pratfalls.
- "I meant to do that" leaps from the floor following praying marines pratfalls.

But I was really puzzling over UD's un-fucking-believable John Lilley gaff. Can they really be that stupid?

Then I realized that today is my birthday. It's all for me!

Look what I got so far!

- A GREAT Pratfall! Weeee!! Thank you, U.D.
- An occasion for an apology that isn't an apology from The Big Head!
- An "I meant to do that" leap from the floor! Aw, that was COOL!

I haven't even opened all the packages. I hope there's a Big Head apology that isn't and some 404s in the other boxes...(clasps hands and dreams)...

- One sour note, however, as we are left with the image of DaveTard defecating fishing tackle.

Yeah; do one where Doc.Doc.Doc.Dembski gets kicked out of Baylor for sending a letter calling all his colleagues asswipes......again.


Look; everyone laughed the first time and a sequel has to be worth a laugh.

Wot? You guys aren't there to make us laugh?

Can we please have DT sent to the wilderness again where he rushes into the arms of the nearest crossdressing truck driver and his underage assistant. (FUCK, THAT WAS GOOD!!!).

More real mathematicians and biologists, I like watching them poke out their own eyes before they commit hari kari.

More get togethers where Bill and Dave speculate on  a religious studies professor in Kansas of getting beat up by his drug dealer.

More love letters to good ol' republican Judges.

More armchair generaling from DT like; the military in Iraq is getting good training in urban warfare and when they get back they will be able to make all of Dallas safe for old fat white males.

More gun and chainsaw stories; like how I trapped a clown car that was on my property.

Howabout some mushroom tea weight loss advice.

Hey UD!  

Please add me to the Thank UD for the recent meltdown list!

Your recent struggles are both heart-warming and exceedinly humorous, and I just wanted to take a couple of minutes to let you know it is very much appreciated.

Please remember - you are never alone!  We are all behind you here, laughing our asses off at every mistake, and ready, able and willing to mark your every crude attempt you make to cover up and obfuscate.  

I look forward to so much more stupidity on your part(s), and I hope I do not put too much pressure on you to continue to f*%k up, but I do want you to know how much it is appreciated, and how totally effing funny it is to watch you struggle like a fish out of water.  It's as if you just weren't designed to cope with the real world!

If there really were a designer, and I were you, I would be pretty damned pissed at that sucker for hanging you out to dry and making you the butt of so much humor!

Thanks again UD!

For example:

September 5, 2007: ?Academic Freedom Expelled from Baylor University? ? The widely read Evolution News & Views blog reports on the controversy.


Now why would people need to be told that something was widely read?

From SciBlogs Questionable Authority:

Dembski Scores (another own goal):
Category: Accidental ? Humor ? Intelligent Design ? religion and science
Posted on: September 5, 2007 11:39 PM, by Mike Dunford

From an article in the Baptist Press, linked from the Uncommon Descent homepage:

"You have to understand, in the current academic climate, Intelligent Design is like leprosy or heresy in times past," [Dembski] said. "To be tagged as an ID supporter is to become an academic pariah, and this holds even at so-called Christian institutions that place a premium on respectability at the expense of truth and the offense of the Gospel."

Good job, Bill.

My comment is that Dembski must not have received the memo:
"To be tagged as an ID supporter is to become an academic pariah,..." should read ? academic paranha

I guess it's hard to stay on top of things, when you're always stuck in the lab doing sciencey things.

[I]added in edit:  OOOPS!  Sorry I misposted this - It should have gone on the basic UD thread.

Or I could just add - "Hey UD, I want to see some more examples of incorrect language usage."

I had to read that twice before cracking up!


They just don't make pariahs like they used to, now they want to have their cake and eat it to.

It used to be so much simpler in the old days.

*assumes yorkshire coal miners accent*

Luxury. When I were a lad, we pariahs were shunned, given a sack cloth shirt tossed some ashes and an apple core and told to scram....and that was the end of it. What we would have given to have our faces rubbed against a brick wall
