In the frenzied perimeter surrounding ground zero in Morris Minnesota (Outside the Dome), speculation on the PZ Myers-Michael Shermer bout, (The Fumble in The Jungle) is all the “news” there is right now, Over at PZ’s site, he’s gone incommunicado. He’s busy peddling his new book, The
Unhinged Happy Atheist, and is also distracted by having to pick all the chunks of “cease and desist” out of his beard that #flirty (drunken) rapist Michael Shermer spewed all over it.
All we can know for sure is that today is the “drop dead” day cited by Mr. Shermer’s legal counsel to retract the original post and delete the accompanying 26,378 (guesstimate) negative libelous comments accumulated to date . On top of all that, there’s the expected formal apology requirement that I noted in yesterdays post.
Of all the anticipated cooperative dispensations demanded, my favorite is the one that requires PZ Myers is to immediately start swinging off Mr. Shermer’s balls like a trapeze monkey at a sideshow carnival. In other words, something that PZ is already fully qualified to accomplish.
In the meantime,
some guy (@mykeru) living in his mom’s basement cramped attic has gone though all the trouble of constructing a PZ Countdown Clock that is ticking off the remaining time before PZ Myers is in full violation of the cease and desist order. It’s showing around twelve hours remaining at the time of this post. In the interest of stretching my Shameful Non Self Promotion out a bit longer than it took Rebecca Watson to deflate a horny apparition in an Irish elevator AND as an electronic reach-around to all the other guys trapped in their mom’s basement attic, here is the link to the countdown clock.
Links to all my previous American Girlyban goodness (click pix to open) for you to read while keeping one eye firmly glued to the countdown clock:
Gasbaggers of the American Girlyban
Attack of the American Girlyban
Dear Atheism Plus
Straining for Credibility
As always, those without mice support will miss roll-over popup hovers, the atheist “easter eggs” I like to include on hyperlinks and pix.
