Students everywhere have endured the terror of midterms. Nights full of late-night cramming, some resorting to prayer, while some clever kids in Uganda might be engaging in supernatural hanky-panky for straight A’s.

Dr. Stephen Kazimba, Anglican bishop for the Mityana diocese, is admonishing the student body to refrain from witchcraft in the classroom.

Funniest thing I’ve seen all week, and I’ve seen some funny stuff this week.

PPC has got to stop drinking out of the toilet. Not only is that comic NOT blasphemous, because there is no jesus but the idea of jesus is blasphemous because of those that drag children into bushes, church basements and such and those that defend them because of the claims of faith. I prayed, “IN HIS NAME” and nothing stopped the joke from happening. And I was asked by peedyphile priest lovers, “which god did you pray to?” What, is this the triplets of duck duck goose or are they implying their devil is a god and that I prayed… Read more »

This article is not nearly funny enough to justify verbally assaulting anybody’s religious or spiritual beliefs. Get funnier.
