Pharyngula tells us about those wacky billionaires!

Lady, That's My Skull returns some unpopular opinions to a wingnut.

Shower Cap summarizes the current state of play.

Bonus Track: Miss Cellania answers the question: what would Bohemian Rhapsody be like if every line of the lyrics was a meme (Bo-Meme-Ean Rhapsody)? The answer is very funny. Pro tip: the memes pick up when the music picks up speed. Pay attention!
