Assud The Bunny And Cartoon Jihad

Update; All the vids were down, so apart from this little bit, I have trashed the rest of the post.


I think the best introduction to this six minute video (full script below) is not to rant about what is being directed at these kids but to offer a poem by Philip Larkin, one time a nominee for poet lauriet.
Just change mum and dad to adults and apply the poem to every kid that is subjected to religious dogma, no matter what denomination and no matter in which country.

As you might guess the screen capture at that particular moment wasn't accidental, being a bit of a fan of irony and all that.

This be the verse
They fuck you up, your mum and dad.
They may not mean to, but they do.
They fill you with the faults they had
And add some extra, just for you.

But they were fucked up in their turn
By fools in old-style hats and coats,
Who half the time were soppy-stern
And half at one another’s throats.

Man hands on misery to man.
It deepens like a coastal shelf.
Get out as early as you can,
And don’t have any kids yourself.
Phillip Larkin. 1922-80
