  1. If we’re doing Atlas Shrugged parodies, you can’t go past McSweeney’s Internet Tendency and its update for the financial crisis. They actually acted out the story on the radio last year, and for weeks I burst into giggles for the memory.

  2. Ack, that article on gym changing rooms left me with a very bad taste in my mouth:

    As someone who is not restricted, however, I feel entitled to disrobe in such an environment, rather than hiding myself away. My reasoning is based on a simple fact: my body works, and while it continues to function healthily, I should not feel shame at its mere aesthetics, but exceptional and infinite thanks for its very functionality.

    What the hell?

  3. I loved this sly cartoon by Dave Walker (who also blogs here) – and I love the responses it has elicited from Guardian readers, which demonstrate, I think, that no-one, whether they be atheist, agnostic, or believer, should ever take themselves too seriously.

  4. @Lauredhel – that line was so WTF-y I kind of assumed I must have read it completely wrong or imagined it or something. Apparently not.
