In an exclusive New Porker interview, the artist formerly known as Bob Ross reveals he faked his 1995 death so that he could pursue his true calling: as the enigmatic, graffiti provocateur, Banksy.
Ross is best known for his PBS series The Joy of Painting, where he taught audiences how to paint landscapes and small animals. “In the beginning, I was just happy to be making a living painting,” Ross said, stroking his rescued hedgehog Tonto, in an undisclosed bunker in London. “But PBS took advantage of my passion for art and locked me into a lifetime contract, or as I called it: indentured servitude. I was shackled to their corporate canvas.” Continue reading →
Hugo Chavez, Venezuela’s greatest leader and singer is dead, along with many Venezuelans hope for the future. Before Chavez, Venezuela was renowned as “the world’s most mediocre country,” but Chavez’s forward thinking and pitch-perfect voice allowed Venezuela’s exports to skyrocket and its murder rate to drop exponentially.
Chavez was a modest, loving man whose witticisms rivaled those of Oscar Wilde. China’s president Hu Jintao claimed that once Chavez had the U.N. council “rolling on the floor laughing” after a string of quips about fossil fuels and human rights. Continue reading →
English: Pope Benedict XVI (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
After a long series of abuse scandals plagued the Catholic Church, Pope Benedict XVI is stepping down. “I admit, fondling boys is not for everyone,” the Pope said to Diego Fellini with Vatican Weekly. “But let’s not forget, it’s their life and it’s not like they’re ‘hurting’anyone.”
Fellini asked the Pope what he thought about the trauma some of these boys are experiencing. “Personally, I’ve never been a fan of whiners,” the Pope said. “These boys talk as if being tenderly touched by a man of the cloth is the same as being crucified as you know who! I’m tired of people crying over spilled milk, which is just one more reason I’m retiring.”
Later in the interview, Fellini inquired why some Priests get too “handsy” with the boys. “It’s simple,” the Pope said. “They’re bored. What these Priests did is no different than throwing Continue reading →

McDonald’s has long claimed the mysterious meaty-substance inside the McRib is pork-shoulder, but new DNA evidence from Consumer Reports reveals McDonald’s savory little secret: The McRib is made from horse meat.
This disturbing news feels reminiscent of that scene from Soylent Green whereNew Yorkers discover the tasty green wafers they’ve all been enjoying are really made from ground-up people—but perhaps this is even worse. Now millions of McRibbies must face the fact they’ve been chomping on horseflesh this whole time. But as one McRibbie put it while chewing into a McRib, “This is highly upsetting—yet, extremely delicious.” Continue reading →
Carnival Cruise is currently requesting donations from passengers who were left stranded on a broken-down cruise ship for three extra days in the heart of the Arctic Ocean.
Carnival spokesman Chezy Leibowitz claims, “Carnival Cruise did not originally agree on giving passengers an extended three day vacation before setting sail. We’ve heard a lot of griping from some of these passengers, but they weren’t complaining while they enjoyed an additional three days of complimentary pizza, soda, a round of miniature golf—not to mention free room and board on the best cruise ship in the business. I mean, come on! I’m sorry they had to enjoy fun in the Artic sun for an extended period! Only in America do people whine about having to stay on vacation longer or missing an episode of survivor.” Continue reading →
A hacker recently released three untitled paintings stolen from George Bush’s email. And might we say, they’re nothing short of spectacular. George Bush has been long revered as one of America’s greatest leaders, but now many believe he is also America’s most brilliant living artist.
One thing most people don’t know about Zero Dark Thirty is: KATHERYN BIG-OL’-HO STOLE IT FROM ME!!!! Yep, that’s right! Big-ol’-ho hijacked my script and I demand recognition, as well as an Oscar (assuming she/I win one). Zero Dark Thirty was essentially my idea! The main difference between my script and hers is that mine is based on a True Story about my uncle Francis T. Burglebarker, titled: Francis Turns Thirty.
Four years ago I regretfully sent Kathryn Big-ol’-ho my only copy of Francis Turns Thirty in hopes of getting it produced. All I received back from her was a “thank you” card covered in kittens that said: “Thanks for the script. I’m not sure if you’ve seen the Hurt Locker, but I kinda only make good (emphasis on good) movies. Good luck with your sucky script and life. Love, Kat.” Continue reading →
The Superdome “power failure” during this year’s Super Bowl 2013, according to our sources, was actually an elaborate marketing ploy by Nerf to advertise their new Nite Brite Glow In The Dark Football.
Nerf and The NFL previously agreed on a 500 million dollar deal that would require the 49ers and Ravens to play one down during the Super Bowl with the Nerf Nite Brite football during a supposed black out.
Unfortunately for Nerf, the associate responsible for providing the Nite Brite football called out “sick” right before the power failure as an act of protest against the child labor mills that produce the Nite Brite footballs in the Philippines. According to a Nerf engineer, the chemical used to make the new Nite Brite footballs glow, is actually the same toxic, radioactive substance that is used in Nuclear Warheads.
Sorry Nerf, but it looks like your $500 million dollar publicity stunt just spiraled down the drain.
Steven Spielberg, director de la película Lincoln (Photo credit: Casa de América)
A more apropos tagline for Lincoln might be: “Four snores and seven beers ago” –because seriously, not even a 6-pack could make this movie even mildly entertaining. Believe me, I tried.
The fact that Lincoln is arguably the worst documentary of the 21st century raises a bigger question: how long are we going to let this Spielturd keep shoveling his fecal-coated films down our throats until we finally rise up and say, “Spielturd, we’ve had enough.” He’s been making movies for—how many centuries now? and has yet to produce/direct one watchable film.
Here are a few examples:
Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom— A.K.A. Tomb Raider Why haven’t more people mentioned the fact that Spielturd unabashedly stole Tomb Raider and mutated it into the stinking pile of feces we know today as The Temple of Doom. The only perceivable differences between these two films are: A) The sex of Indiana Jones and Lara Croft. Apparently, Spielturd doesn’t believe that women can be heroes, too—what a sexist crackerjack. B) The Temple of Doom, unlike Tomb Raider, perpetuates racist stereotypes such as “Orientals” only eat monkey brains and snake guts for dinner. I’ll have you know, Spielturd, my best friend Hadji (and no, he didn’t star in Jonny Quest) is an Oriental, and he was appalled by your depiction of his people. Probably the only historically accurate thing in The Temple of Doom is during the 1930s, 65% of Orientals, according to Hadji, performed human sacrifices to fake Gods, similar to the “Kali-ma” scene Indiana witnesses. But now, according to Hadji, only 15% of Orientals perform these sacrificial rituals; and for the record, that number is constantly declining. Continue reading →
