    Is there a tag for posts about Popehat selling out yet?

    wat r da benefits of oatmeals

    They make dipshit lawyers named Charles Carreon look really really bad?

    > ai shit on the law of pope

    While it's true that my science fiction novel features both Artificial Intelliegence ** and ** a special envoy from the Vatican, the two threads barely intersect at all, and certainly not in this way.

  4. TJIC says:

    > how to handle rude and unmanner behavior of mother in law:

    I've got a friend who used a stun gun.

    Apparently that worked – ahem – stunningly well in the short term, but it resulted in legal problems.

    As another plug for my preferred legal system: let the record show that under anarcho-capitalism it is ENTIRELY legal to use a stun-gun on your mother-in-law, and might even be a good idea, provided that you contract with a better armed private security contracting firm than she does.

    OK, last one:

    > defamation for calling someone a dick

    The town attorney here in Arlington threatened to sue me for defamation for calling him a drunkard.

    That lawsuit ended up going nowhere after he was FOUND BY THE POLICE passed out drunk in an idling car with a young companion.

    100% cross-my-heart true story.

    Best Popehat post ever.

    Yes! We at Popehat are at the forefront of helping Redditors adjust to people on the internet criticizing them.

    Sigh…… still sticking with this narrative about Reddit I see?

    Look, I agree with your general point about the trend of people thinking that internet anonymity entitles them to be free from criticism… the whole "speech is tyranny" thing… I'm totally on board with you on that general point. But just because you have a really nice hammer doesn't mean Reddit is a nail. That's just not what the recent reddit drama was actually about.

  8. Ken says:

    I'm sorry. Henceforth I will try to treat Redditors with the same seriousness and dignity and respect and fairness that everyone receives in Road to Popehat posts.

  9. Ken says:

    Also, I believe that the MLA Handbook says that you cannot start a comment with "Sigh . . . ." unless you have first started one with "Um . . . ."

  10. Kevin says:

    Mocking my language usage is clearly a case of harassment/defamation/intentional infliction of emotional distress.

    Personally, I still think your own "taint" fragrance is the pinnacle of Popehat branding. To the good guys, it smells great. To the censorious bad guys it smells a like a combination of pony “output”, rotting rutabagas, and Pepé Le Pew.

    >silenced pistol hunting

    All those poor silenced pistols, killed for sport. When will people wake up and realize silenced pistols are God's creatures too and we should be honored to share the earth with them!

    > your own "taint" fragrance … To the good guys, it smells great.

    Up until this moment I thought I was a good guy.

    Now I know better.

  14. tsrblke says:

    I feel like this just calls out for a "what's your road to popehat" comments.
    (BTW, mine was "Burzynski sues people." Seriously, well I think it was just Burzynski sues.)

  15. M. says:

    I wish you'd make this a weekly, or at least bi-weekly, feature.

  16. AlphaCentauri says:

    I'm guessing the "ai shit on law of pope" was someone hitting "enter" while fumbling around trying to type "population" and seeing an interesting entry in the Google results.

  17. Kelly says:

    I agree with M. this really should be a weekly/bi-weekly feature. Priceless.
