Watch a Pastor Flip Out Over a Very Satanic 'Wonder Showzen' Episode

Yesterday a YouTube clip surfaced of a pastor named Daniel Castle raging out over an episode of John Lee and Vernon Chatman's delightfully bizarre children's show spoof Wonder Showzen, which aired on MTV2 from 2005-2006, and it's gloriously entertaining.

Real-Life Johnny Bananas Suing Entourage in Douchiest Trial of the Century

An MTV reality "star" by the name of Johnny Bananas is suing the creators of Entourage because they use that name as the title of Johnny Drama's highly improbable animated series, Johnny's Bananas, in the show.

Yet Again, The Onion Makes a Joke, and Humorless Idiots Complain

Because there are literally no bigger problems in the world worthy of people's attention, a parents group called One Million Moms (whose 584 Twitter followers lead me to believe their name is a slight exaggeration) is protesting Ben and Jerry's new SNL-inspired ice cream flavor Schweddy Balls. "The vulgar new flavor has turned something as innocent as ice cream into something repulsive," they say in their statement. Meanwhile, this vulgar new parent's group is turning something as innocent as parents into something repulsive.

BREAKING NEWS: Jack Donaghy Is Not an Optimal Boss

An actually serious study by the actually serious company Global Compliance has found that the workplace on 30 Rock has the most ethics violations of any workplace on TV. Nice work, you fucking scientists. Get your Nobel acceptance speeches prepped! The biggest offender? "30 Rock," which averages 11 violations per episode. On one show, Jack (Alec Baldwin) comments that a "chick lawyer" who handles sexual harassment presentations is "asking for it." According to Global Compliance, which is devoted to helping organizations achieve the highest degree of ethical behavior, Jack's remark violates Diversity, Equal Opportunity, and Respect in the Workplace.
