UD’s Morning Giggle

A French government official’s attempts to ban an essay entitled I Hate Men over its “incitement to hatred on the grounds of gender” have backfired, sending sales of the feminist pamphlet skyrocketing.


Perhaps you don’t share UD’s sense of humor. I haven’t gotten past that first paragraph and I’m already laughing. Let’s read the rest of the article. Here’s hoping for more laughs…



[The 25-year-old author] criticised [the gender equality advisor’s] response to her work. “A state official who has a power crisis facing an 80-page book released in 400 copies, I find that very problematic,” she said.

[The small publisher] did initially set out to print just 400 copies when the essay was published in August, but after [Ralph] Zurmély’s attacks, the first three editions of the book have sold out, with almost 2,500 copies sold just two weeks after its release. A larger publisher, who has yet to be named, is now set to take the title on.


And, as faithful readers know, UD always finds a way to sing it.

‘The moment we read the tweet, “Just ‘congratulated’ ‘president-elect’ Joe Biden (total loser). You’ll miss me VERY SOON!!!” is the moment our long national nightmare will finally be over.’


“The federal affidavit in the case also alleges [Ohio House speaker Larry] Householder used about $20,000 from the conspiracy to pay credit card debt and another $300,000 to cover legal fees and a settlement in a defamation lawsuit he dropped after suing political opponents for ads questioning his ethics.”

LOLOLOL legal fees settlement defamation questioning ethics LOLOLOLOL.



The good news is Steve King lost.

The bad news is that his voice – which always brightened UD‘s day – has now been stilled.

Who else in our political culture will justify no abortion even in cases of rape or incest because there wouldn’t be “any population of the world left” if it weren’t for rape and incest?


But when God closes a door, he opens a window: Adrian Vermeule is just getting started.


95% of haredi math teachers [in Israel] did not receive a math education.

Don’t worry – I’m sure it’s much better here in the States. 90%?

Anyway. Really not to worry. Math beyond fingers and toes isn’t taught in haredi schools. So they don’t need any teachers.

‘Understandably, people whose neighbors have been eaten are less likely to take the long view…’

Fun sentence, this morning’s New York Times.

A Laff Riot

Written, starring and executive produced by [Timothy] Simons, [new HBO comedy] Exit Plans centers around assisted suicide. When assisted suicide is legalized in 2019, a man from California opens a small business helping people transition into death peacefully while struggling to keep ahold of his crumbling personal life. In short, he’s trying to figure out his life while ending yours.

The War on Boys…

heats up.

Quote of the Day

I’m not sure how saying someone looks like a child of “Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes” is racist. I thought “Muslim Brotherhood” was supposed to be a “good” thing and Liberals say we are descended from apes?

Bill Mitchell; quoted by Conor Friedersdorf

“Bob Mueller has been notoriously unhappy every time he has tried to be in private practice.”

“He just can’t defend guilty people. He’ll meet with a client, they’ll explain their problem, and he’ll say, ‘Well it sounds like you should go to jail then.'”

You can’t say the Council lacks a sense of humor.

Norway’s state-funded Islamic Council

used state funds intended for “bridge-building and enhanced communication” to hire an office administrator who uses a niqab that covers everything but her eyes.

“The only thing I would be impartial about is which prison he goes to,” one [prospective Martin Shkreli] juror said. That person was dismissed — as more than 250 were…

Great headline. The piece is pretty good too.
