Governor Rick Scott forced to okay 8 foot "Festivus" pole made out of Pabst Blue Ribbon cans. How's that whole religious displays on public property thing working out for you Florida?

I swear that video gave me a case of the giggles.

Here is more courtesy of Raw Story:  

Gov. Rick Scott’s (R) office has approved the request of a self-proclaimed “militant atheist” to install an 8-foot-tall Festivus pole made of Pabst Blue Ribbon beer cans in the Florida State Capitol building. 

According to Tamarac Talk, Deerfield Beach resident Chaz Stevens asked for permission to honor the holiday created by the television show Seinfield after learning that there was a Christian nativity manger and a Three Wise Men display. 

“I figured one ridiculous act required another,” Stevens noted. 

After the activist forced Deerfield Beach to allow him to erect his pole outside the main fire station last year, the city voted to ban all religious displays. 

Stevens plans to install the pole at the Capitol building on Wednesday. 

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) was also forced to approve a Festivus pole for his state’s Capitol building this year.

Merry Festivus everybody!

      This is really Sarah's favorite holiday. She celebrates it constantly. Every time she opens her mouth all that comes out are imaginary grievances.

    I love the Pagan Holy Days! All of them!

    We live in a nation of religious choice. I choose that Old Time Religion: it's good enough for me!

    C'mon, Satanists! Don't let the atheists steal your religious thunder. It's time for a nice big honkin' monument honoring your leader Satan to appear in front of the FL capitol building!

    I mean, really, what would be a more appropriate place for it?

    I didn't giggle - but I did smile and chuckle a bit.

    Say, Gryph, speaking of head-up-your-ass-GOP, have you seen this:

    One question: Do they HAVE to be Pabst Blue Ribbon cans, or will Miller High LIfe do? I want it to be kosher...


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
