Like yesterday's school board stories, another theme has presented itself: Threats of Violence. Not from bofe-sides, either. (Except the "witch" in the Twix ad reaction alicublog covered. She's a lib, obvs.)

In the crosshairs: Fox News & violent imagery, from Oliver Willis.

Meanwhile, the latest OUTRAGE!1!! is ninnies claiming a Twix tee vee advert calls for violence against bullies. By witchy-wimmen! Alicublog has the scoop.

The Rude Pundit continues the theme w/ many an example.

And a further look at the latest in lunatic Republican idiocy from Down with Tyranny! Great illustrations by Nancy Ohanian, too.

Boo! Bonus from Crazy Eddie the Motie: Metaphoric implications of the Victorian mansion as haunted house.

Wrangled by Web of Evil (& Ennui) proprietor M. Bouffant. Still accepting submissions at mbru@crooksandliars.com.
