God Hates Signs:
Fred Phelps' Westboro Baptist Church band-of-bigots showed up in San Francisco the other day to protest at the headquarters of Twitter. (Why? "Twitter should be used to tell the punks of doomed America that God hates you!"). They were met by counter-protesters
, well versed in the dark arts of snark. Hilarity ensues.

Meet batting stance guy
. The NY Times has a neat profile
on Gar Ryness, who has the most marketable least-marketable skill in America.
He does your favorite old-school players, as well as most of the current MLB team lineups, including the (non-Dutch) stars of the WBC
. He's made video appearances for several teams (and MLB TV), and has quickly become a fan and player favorite for his uncanny depictions of players' idiosyncratic moves in the batter's box.
In terms of virtual baseball, batting stance guy is slightly more awesome than this

On September 19th, the Westboro Baptist Church planned a protest outside the National Conference of Editorial Writers, claiming that they were "responsible for the satanic milieu in this evil land" and for assisting the "satanic agendas" of "baby-killers and fags."
But September 19th also happened to be International Talk Like a Pirate Day. And thus, a group of local residents were inspired to stage an effective,
and entertaining, counterprotest.

The Human Beings ability for incessant bigotry and ignorance is astonishing!
I know this was posted back a few years ago, but it just had to be shown again..... ugh.
