What's the world coming to when you're a "fitness and liberty" group that's just trying to organize a "Run 'n Gun," which is apparently some kind of race that involves guns (SOUNDS REAL SAFE), and you can't even post a hilarious picture of two gun-fondling guys standing next to a rainbow flag, advertising "new high visibility targets"? Gah, nobody can take a FUNNY JOKE anymore, can they? Here's the pic, we post, you decide:


 

Apparently, in the gay mecca that is Oklahoma, some people took the posting as a threat:

“Since it said our new target and it had guns that I took it as a threat,” said human rights activist, Mahkesha Hogg.

“I think for many gay men and women in the state of Oklahoma, we feel as if we walk around as targets,” said Scott J. Hamilton, an advocate for the LGBT community.

But the organization itself, to be completely fair, says it really didn't mean for people to think they wanted to use gay flags or gay human beings as targets, they are just very bad at jokes:

Event organizers say they did not expect the response they got and that it was all meant as a joke. [...]

The race organizer tells NewsChannel 4 some people had been complaining about not being able to see the targets, so this was their response … a brightly colored one.

The picture is no longer on the group's Facebook page. So what was this? An innocent group of gun humpers who like to strap numbers on their backs and run across the prairie firing guns in the air like Yosemite Sam, and who don't realize that gay jokes aren't really funny anymore? (Unless they are. Sometimes they are. But they have to be GOOD, and this was not one of those cases. Eat me, social justice warriors.) Or do these people really hate the gays deep down, and find it maddening that those dumb queers are fuckin' up errthing they hold dear, YET AGAIN, up to and including their special Gun Run Fun?

Who knows?

But if the group is truly looking for bright, colorful targets for shootin' at, things which don't represent good nice Americans who have been discriminated against, here are some other things that have colors on them:

  • Big jars of jellybeans!
  • Tie-dyed things. They could do big fancy tie-dyed targets, and the only people they'd offend would be the hippies of 1969, who are still too stoned to care.
  • Ginormous bushels of assorted fruits.
  • These multi-colored Elmo dolls, awwwwwwww BANG!
  • The Confederate Flag.

Now you kids go have a fun race and don't let nobody get hurt!

Dame Peggington Noonington awakened in the New York Publick Librarie in a daze. She did not know what series of unfortunate events had led to this moment, but she vaguely remembered that last time this happened a passerby on 5th Avenue had transported her there, having found her on a stoop with eyes glazed over, muttering "Buk! Buk!" If we're being honest, she was choking on gin, but the well-meaning Good Samaritan took her for a woman craving classic literature, and Peggy was OK with allowing that illusion to stand.

As she stumbled toward the exit to summon her chauffeur -- Manuel, who was also her houseboy, who probably was responsible entirely for her current predicament, and would be subject to a talking-to about his derring-do as soon as Peggy's head stopped pounding -- she happened upon a display of new arrivals. "Buk! Buk!" she said. Swallowing hard, she grabbed a copy of Michelle Obama's book and went out onto the New York street without actually checking the book out.

Peggy arrived home safely, if a bit worse for the wear. She had been thinking about America's royal families a lot lately, especially the genteel women who serve as First Lady. She was particularly charmed by Melania Trump's show of wicked mischief last week, firing the deputy national security adviser without regret! Peggy remembered how fun it is to fire people and stuck a Post-it on her forehead to remind her to fire Manuel later, for leaving her destitute among the commoners at the librarie.

Congratulations to the Dear Leader on his flawless victory in court against the media dogs at the CNN cesspool of evil. Donald Trump is a champion of the people's right to civil discourse, and he will not hesitate to slap those who hurt the dignity of the Supreme Leadership. Take it from Ri Chun-hee Sarah Huckabee Sanders:

Today the court made clear that there is no absolute First Amendment right to access the White House. In response to the court, we will temporarily reinstate the reporter's hard pass. We will also further develop rules and processes to ensure fair and orderly press conferences in the future. There must be decorum at the White House.

Leave aside for a moment the screaming irony of the Pussgrab Administration lecturing the press on decorum. Literally none of what the Huckster said here is true. Judge Timothy Kelly ordered the White House Press Office to reinstate Jim Acosta's hard pass immediately on Fifth Amendment grounds. He didn't reach the First Amendment issues of press access because he didn't have to.
