Babylon Bee As A Public Service

It just occurred to me that the Babylon Bee performs a public service, beyond the obvious stress-relieving humor. Take this headline for instance.

AOC Proposes Nationwide Ban On Straws After Learning Trump Won Straw Pol

It used to be that I’d see quotes attributed to Occasionally-firing-Cortex, and I’d have to look them up to see if they were real or parody.

It went about 50/50. Without research, AOC is indistinguishable from parody.

But now when I see this in the Bee, which I know to be satire, I’m fairly safe in assuming satire/parody, even if banning straws ‘cuz “straw polls” really does sound like something that idiot would come up with.

That saves a a little wasted web search time.


If you found this post useful, please consider dropping something in my tip jar. I could really use the money, what with ISP bills, site hosting and SSL certificate, new 2021 model hip, and general life expenses.
