Today I ran across a website that will solve all your future insult problems. No longer are insults such as “poopy head” and “I don’t like you” sufficient, let alone appropriate.

Using Martin Luther’s random insult generator, you will never have a lack of insults to throw at the next person that cuts you off or makes fun of your tie dye shirt.

Some examples:

“If you who are assembled in a council are so frivolous and irresponsible as to waste time and money on unnecessary questions, when it is the business of a council to deal only with the important and necessary matters, we should not only refuse to obey you, but consider you insane or criminals.”

From Defense and Explanation of All the Articles, pg. 80 of Luther’s Works, Vol. 32

(Why isn’t Martin Luther in Congress right now?)

“You are full of poisonous refuse and insane foolishness.”

From Against Latomus, pg. 140 of Luther’s Works, Vol. 32

Your words are so foolishly and ignorantly composed that I cannot believe you understand them.

From Explanations of the Ninety-Five Theses, pg. 87 of Luther’s Works, Vol. 31


And of course my personal favorite that I’ve come across so far:


“I was frightened and thought I was dreaming, it was such a thunderclap, such a great horrid fart did you let go here! You certainly pressed with great might to let out such a thunderous fart – it is a wonder that it did not tear your hole and belly apart!”

From Against the Roman Papacy, an Institution of the Devil, pg. 344 of Luther’s Works, Vol. 41

He really has a way with words, doesn’t he?

Let me know your favorite insult! There’s a lot of good ones!

These are all great men, and do you know what they have in common?

That’s right, fashionable eyewear.

Well today at my physical, the optometrist figured that now is a good time for me to join the ranks of these great men, and join them I shall with great dignity and pride.

All I need is help figuring out what style suits me best. I sort of like the Teddy Roosevelt style, but maybe it is a tad old fashioned.

Using the latest photo editing software (Word), I did my best to give you some options to judge:

Well?

History is happening. Are you watching?

At this very moment, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is conducting a traditional (aka “talking”) filibuster on the Senate floor. At the time of writing this. he has had the Senate floor for 10 hours and 43 minutes. For up to the minute information on how long he’s been going, check this site.

The premise of the filibuster is the recent admission from Attorney General Eric Holder that the President has the authority to carry out drone strikes on American citizens on U.S. soil, without any trial.
If you remember your constitution, the 5th amendment clearly states that Americans can not “…be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law…”
This is what we call “assassination.” Do you believe that the President has the authority to assassinate Americans on U.S. soil?
Click here to watch it live (if it’s still going)
It is also live on C-SPAN2.

Update: Just hit 12 hours!
