It's almost musical, isn't it?

In a development that makes perfect sense this year, a 2014 photo from a gunsmithing shop, Gulf of Maine Gunsmithing in Raymond, Maine, has suddenly gone viral after hitting the Twitters Tuesday. Not content with a series of rather boring warnings about "Demarats" and their desire to tax you to death on its signboard, the management offered the above rant cautioning the public to





Not surprisingly, the thing has gone all BOOM! like the Vaginamite on the Twitter Machine, and people are having loads of fun with it, because there is something undeniably melodic about the phrase "Vagenda of Manocide":

Lest anyone think the Internet is slow to grab a meme and hold on for dear life, you'll be delighted to know that within hours of the old sign first being tweeted, the URL redirects straight to Hillary Clinton's campaign donation page. Bravo, Clinton staffer or anonymous troll who purchased the domain!

It's a little repetitious

Also, if you're in Maine and you need some gunsmithing done, we'd suggest someplace other than Gulf of Maine Gunsmithing. They seem a little unbalanced. If you're into documentation of wingnuttery, there's a nice fellow on the Facebooks who's been archiving the shop's signs, because that, too, is why Al Gore made the internet. That and cats. Who have a catgenda of cheezburgercide.

Doktor Zoom's real name is Marty Kelley, and he lives in the wilds of Boise, Idaho. He is not a medical doctor, but does have a real PhD in Rhetoric. You should definitely donate some money to this little mommyblog where he has finally found acceptance and cat pictures. He is on maternity leave until 2033. Here is his Twitter, also. His quest to avoid prolixity is not going so great.

Well, goddamn it, a wonderful person we'd never heard of until last night is dead. Lyra McKee was 29, an investigative journalist who specialized in looking at the legacy of "the Troubles" in Northern Ireland. She was murdered by someone shooting at police during rioting in Derry, or perhaps Londonderry, depending on who you want to piss off by using either name for the city. The rioting broke out after police "started carrying out searches in the area because of concerns that militant republicans were storing firearms and explosives" in advance of attacks planned to mark the anniversary of the 1916 Easter Rising. Police are blaming the violence and McKee's death on the "New Irish Republican Army," a radical republican group formed a few years ago from several smaller groups. Despite the name, the group has no ties to the old Provisional Irish Republican Army, which renounced violence and disarmed in 2005 following the 1998 Good Friday Agreement, which was supposed to have brought peace to Northern Ireland, and kind of did, at least much of the time.

McKee is being remembered by colleagues and readers as a promising journalist who was expected to go far. A year ago, McKee signed a two-book deal with Faber & Faber; the first of the books, The Lost Boys, an investigation of eight young men who disappeared in Belfast during the Troubles in the '60s and '70s, will be published next year. A 2016 Forbes profile said "McKee's passion is to dig into topics that others don't care about." For instance, CNN reports, McKee spent five years investigating a story about the only rape crisis center in Northern Ireland and its long struggle to regain funding after the government eliminated it.
