There are so many to choose from, but the winner goes to the "Confederate Yankee," for the incredibly lame, "Google Mocks Christ on Christmas Eve." Congratulations!

Jesus General brought this post to light which is my nomination for funniest post of the year. (This post is not an attack on religion or Christians-so please don't take it in that light.)

The winning post is about an idiotic attempt to link the phony war on Christmas with an equally asinine conspiracy theory by Google to make fun of Christians. Pajamas Media pay good cash to bring this type of content to their new venture so I would assume they are very pleased with the results.

Another CY commenter quickly explained how one could search Google and filter out the offensive material. (although I haven't tried it myself.) As most people have seen, it is fairly easy to manipulate the search results for a particular name or product on Google, but the CY seems oblivious to the obvious. It was very childish (and an offensive prank for some) to do for sure, but to CY it was an actual scheme:

"Some folks have made the argument that this is the result of Googlebombing or other SEO tricks. Others say that it is merely the result of Google's search programs. They would absolve Google of all responsibility.

I do not."

And there was Pamela from "Atlas Shruggs," commenting in the CY thread to top it off. She tried to sway the heart of Charles Johnson:

"Google must die

google jew.............that'll knock your socks off

Yeah yeah, I know they have no agenda but they run adsfor hamas and hizbollah but refuse LGF
status as a news source

(James Wolcott has a few more words to say about Pamela)

Was the CY hoping that Michelle Malkin would have picked it up and run with it? Congratulations once again.
