Funny, but a bit sad, too

I've filed this under the humor tag, but find some of the changes to be a bit sad. Anyhoo, here's a list contrasting 1973 with 2007. Excerpt:

Scenario: Pedro fails high school English.

1973: Pedro goes to summer school, passes English, goes to college.

2007: Pedro’s cause is taken up by state democratic party. Newspaper articles appear nationally explaining that teaching English as a requirement for graduation is racist. ACLU files class action lawsuit against state school system and Pedro’s English teacher. English banned from core curriculum. Pedro given diploma anyway but ends up mowing lawns for a living because he can’t speak English.

Scenario: Johnny takes apart leftover firecrackers from the 4th of July, puts them in a model airplane paint bottle, blows up a red ant bed.

1973: Ants die.

2007: BATF, Homeland Security, FBI called. Johnny charged with domestic terrorism, FBI investigates parents, siblings removed from home, computers confiscated, Johnny’s Dad goes on a terror watch list and is never allowed to fly again.

Pwning some silly hotlinker: priceless

Apparently someone at the HuffPo hotlinked an image from the Family Research Council. Well, the Evangelical Output did what I normally do to hotlinkers: moved a different image into that file name. The results are quite amusing. As I type this, the HuffPo still hasn't been fixed.
