it’s been a while since we played “woke or joke”…
the basic law here is simple, but its application becomes terribly complex because human virtue signaling is so many-slpendored and multifaceted.
sometimes, it’s literally both.
perhaps there is a second law at work?
longtime gatopal™ and fellow feline kevin mckernan made this joke a week ago.
and then we get this:
(perhaps this timeline is not so long…)
you seriously cannot even make fun of these people without inadvertently being right.
what a time to be alive…
Y'all don't recall "Freedom Fries"?
My world has become so sad, sad, sad. My several siblings are all woke and it's getting very difficult to claim them as family. Especially when they have pretty much ostracized me for --to begin with-- my view on the plandemic measures... and on and on. Sad, sad, sad.
In New Jersey, the government in Newark voted to revoke the licenses of two Lukoil gas stations in the city. Senator Cory Booker backs this move, saying that the employees should be able to find other jobs since so many places are hiring. Hopefully that will be the case. But this is a minority, urban community where I would bet the employees walk or bike to work. Will they be able to find a job within that distance? What about the owners? Are they supposed to just open another gas station? And what if this happens to every Lukoil in the state or the country? Nothing like putting people out of work again. This is Wokeness gone mad.
The French for some reason do spell Putin’s name as Poutine. Because otherwise it would never be pronounced correctly I suppose. Which makes the cheese fries thing pretty darn hilarious.
I keep wondering when the woke crowd will go after languages like French that have gender assigned to objects. Who are we to assume all doors identify as female? Or that all cheeses identify as male?
Perhaps Putin now identifies as female, since they have feminized his name.
it will be remembered as the age of the clown
Stuff like this makes me appreciate how hard it must be for the folks at the Babylon Bee to come up with headlines...
Hey Gatito Malo Malo, I should admit that my abode is shared by two of your kind. One of them is a "Russian." I now guard my conversation, and take all phone calls outside. Y'all are too unpredictable. And yes, we are now looking for Ukrainian dressing.
Comrade Titania McGrath has a great thread on her joke predictions becoming woke reality, as well as everything that is considered racist or white supremacy.
Substacker Euypppius had a piece the other day how some german docs are announcing they aren't going to treat Russian expats anymore. This reminds me of FDRs EO 9066 which put Japanese-Americans into internment camps. Horrible https://www.eugyppius.com/p/ortrud-steinlein-director-of-lmu/comments?s=r
Is this real with the Poutine? I mean really real? If so we have reached fatal levels of stupidity.
I don't remember, in any previous war that we've engaged in or not, where we have banned names and items that are somehow connected to the enemy. Did we ban rice when we were in Vietnam? how about anything Middle Eastern? Again, this is low level theatre created for the sole purpose of capturing the minds of the people, really--the dumbest of people.
Ok this is off topic sort of but I had to share it…. I present El Gato’s new theme song🤣🤣
With apologies to Arthur C Clarke,
“Any sufficiently woke statement is indistinguishable from parody”
They canceled Doskyovsky for being Russian at some woke university. We are such an unserious species.
I move we ban the use of the word "mandatory" for being both sexist, exclusionary and politically biased.
'Man-' is clearly misogynist, excluding wamyn from the process.
'Mandat-' is old french meaning a command - a clear sign of racist slave-owner mentality.
'Tory'- is the name of the british conservative party - so the word implies white slave owning conservatives have a right to order wamyn about.
We need a new inclusive term for when people get told what to do for their own good.
(Trust me, run this idea by your local woke and odds are they'll swallow it hook line and sinker.)
They should ban Grey Poupon too. That’s dangerously close ya know.
Put 1000 monkeys in a room with 1000 typewriters and you may get all the works of Shakespeare with time but even the monkeys couldn't come up with this idiotic Wokeness crap.
Put-in-Bay, Ohio is likely to be renamed...
My guess is "Freedom Island."
You may find some actionable ideas in this.

Fucking dumb people are the minority but the majority go with them because they are lazy to notice that this is destructive.

Let’s just hope they don’t turn the US into Rwanda.
A restaurant in Paris named "Maison de la Poutine", specialized in the infamous Poutine dish, has received phone call threats over the past few days:
Really good that they banned poutine. It's to keep everyone safe! That stuff is really dangerous: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3lOP5sNnvBA
Love the big cat!
My own quote, which I've been using since the 1990s: "Peak Libtard is indistinguishable from vicious, biting satire."

Poe's Law: Without a clear indication of the author's intent, it is difficult or impossible to tell the difference between an expression of sincere extremism and a parody of extremism.
I claim a Double Absurd Score with this move (cat and Russia theme, duh!)
When I first heard that they were changing the name, I could only think, "Poutine's not a Russian dish. WTF?"
My mind apparently could *not* sink to the level of stupidity required to link poutine to Putin phonetically. I didn't grasp that stupidity until I saw the CTV News item above.
If you can’t fix stupid can you at least bat it around a couple of times?
I have lost track of how many times in the past 6 months I've read a Daily Wire headline and thought I was reading the Babylon Bee.
I threw out all my Russian dressing to show solidarity with those under attack.
What’s a good brand of Ukrainian dressing? Must be vegan
omg!! i love putine.
once on vacation in quebec province before canada became a fascist enclave i stopped for lunch and got the putine and hot dog special. i could hardly walking out to the car.....
