  1. There was a time when a bargain on tunic fabrics would have been just what I needed.

  2. Just wait until BP adopts a religion that espouses anointing wildlife with oil. May the blessing of North Sea Brent be upon you!

  3. If gays and strippers stop buying their glitter, they're done for.

  4. I'm just guessing here but I believe the comic is referring to the idea that a corporation or business can hold religious beliefs (which is basically what Hobby Lobby is positing in saying that its religious beliefs dictate that they cannot allow their employees to have (certain kinds of) contraception covered by the company insurance policy.) So, if a corporation (already deemed to be a "person" by our genius Supreme Court) can be said to hold religious beliefs, that "person" can also theoretically change those beliefs from those it was brought up with (like a child might break away from the beliefs of his or her parents.) Sorry to kill the joke with so much explanation but, truthfully, it was pretty obscure and I imagine doubly so for someone outside the US.

  5. If I understand this right, the owner of Hobby Lobby claims the right to dictate the "morality" of the company. The way I see it, the owner abdicated that right when the company was incorporated. By removing himself from liability for the company while still controlling how it "thinks," he is trying to have it both ways.

    That's just the way I see it. The real world may see it differently, and the American legal system, which lives in yet another world only tenuously attached to reality, will have its own point of view.
