Poe's LawHere's an example of what I'm really hoping is a case of #1, but sadly appears to be a case of #2...
- The eponymous law of the internet, that "Without a winking smiley or other blatant display of humour, it is impossible to create a parody of [religious] fundamentalism that someone won't mistake for the real thing."
- "Poe’s Law also has an inverse meaning, stating that non-fundamentalists will often mistake sincere expressions of fundamentalist beliefs for parody."[Source]
Please someone tell me this is either a joke, or that the candidate behind the attack is unlikely to ever hold the Governor's office! Who might that be?? I'm guessing Tim James -- yes that same Tim James who wants Alabama to be English-only.
Seriously, it almost makes me want to send a campaign donation to Bradley Byrne... almost.
