Ice Cream Sexuality - 2:30 minutes
This cartoon from Bill Nye Saves the World uses various ice cream flavors as part of a hysterical analogy on the intolerant views of Christians when it comes to sexuality.
It starts off with various flavors of ice cream showing up at an "Ice Cream Conversion Therapy" group. Vanilla is the dogmatic leader of the group. "It's the science of feelings, and as vanilla, I feel that I am the most natural of the ice creams. And therefore the rest of you should just go ahead and also be vanilla. It's the one true flavor."
But his stance immediately weakens once he gets a quick lick of salted caramel, and then all hell breaks loose (literally, if you're a vanilla thinker) as they all jump into the bowl together and vanilla sees his true inner flavor.
Huffington Post reports on some of the reactions:
Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro posted a video to his official Facebook page criticizing Nyeâ€™s analogy, noting, â€śThere is no scientific basis for anything that is in this videoâ€¦ Just on a scientific basis, ice cream does not have genitalia.â€ť
PJ Media columnist Megan Fox felt similarly. â€śThe message here is clear (and not at all scientific): Christian, straight white people are bigots, racists and not even straight,â€ť she wrote in a Tuesday column. â€śBill Nye offers no proof of that, other than a poorly drawn cartoon about debauched ice cream.â€ť
Bottom line: The truth hurts. The fact that conservative Christians can become so angry over a humorous video depicting â€śdebauched ice creamâ€ť only reinforces the notion that their anti-gay Christian morality deserves to be mocked and ridiculed.
Gay Teacher Plays Prank On His Fourth Graders - 2:46 minutes
A fourth-grade teacherâ€™s April Foolsâ€™ Day prank may give you horrible spelling test flashbacks, but it's making the internet laugh.
Joe Dombrowski of Royal Oak Elementary School received groans from his students as he announced a pop quiz Wednesday afternoon.
Mr. Dombrowski watched the kids scratch their heads as he announced each word, which turned out not to be words at all. They were all made up and many had â€śsilent letters,â€ť but the children didnâ€™t know that.
When the students finished, the Michigan teacher asked them to grade their own work as he read the answers aloud to the class.
"The first word is blorskee," said Dombrowski. "I lost my blorskee at a carnival."
He continues with the following words as the kids become increasingly frustrated:
- Tangateen: "I eat my spaghetti with a tangateen."
- Speekuzslmn: "Look, thereâ€™s a speekuzslmn."
- Wazamata: "Students said they were sick, I said, 'Wazamata with you?'"
- Slipert: "Be careful when youâ€™re sleeping, there might be a slipert in your house."
- Chchch: "The horse was angry so I said chchch."
- Rol-aska-tox: "Rol-aska-tox was surprised when Jinx took the crown."
- Speenuch: "My favourite food is speenuch and artichoke dip."
- Shabolaskp: "Be careful that you do not catch shabolaskp."
- GĂśRRR: "My friend told me a secret and I said GĂśRRR."
As the teacher wrapped up the quiz, he told the kids to check number 11, which the students were quick to point out didnâ€™t exist.
"It's April Fools, because this is an April Fools' joke," proclaimed Dombrowski.
Dombrowski captured the hilarious prank on video and posted it on his Facebook page. As of Sunday morning, it has over 250,000 shares, 105,000 reactions and 17 million views!
