Best of the Bee: Part 7
My favorite articles from The Babylon Bee
It’s time once again to go over more of my favorite articles from the approximately 666 articles I wrote for The Babylon Bee. And I think I solved my image issue. This time we’re well into the pandemic going from April and May of 2020. That’s a lot of ones I liked from just two months; I guess COVID-19 inspired me.
COVID-19 got political pretty quickly, which meant anything Trump said about it had to be dumb and bad. I actually don’t know where in the end things came down on Hydroxychloroquine; it was impossible to know through the haze of partisanship.
Man, I had to Google how to spell that so many times.
What a weird world where everyone is wearing masks. This was my attempt to have some fun with it, but I’m glad we’re done with that… unless you’re in one of those places still doing masks (I’m in Texas, which was done with the pandemic by June 2020).
The Karen joke got overplayed pretty quickly, but this was right during its height as the pandemic was a renaissance for Karens. I don’t have much to say, except I was proud to come up with the acronym.
Way too many people seemed to be under the impression that if there was a “crisis”, the government could do whatever it felt necessary. I’m one of those sticklers who was always going, “Where does it say the government can do that in the Constitution?” But people thought they could just give the government free reign, and whenever the crisis was over, all that power would go away. Unfortunately, there is not a great history of that.
The thing I most want the Supreme Court to overturn after Roe v Wade. And yes, I will never tire of making fun of The Last Jedi, though in this article I focused on some problems I had with the whole new trilogy.
Again, it’s a weird world when everyone is wearing masks. I just loved this take on this because it was so dumb.
I really had a lot of fun with Trump, and I feel like in this article, I was pretty accurate on who would be his favorite ninja turtle and who would be his least favorite. And I loved the logic of why they just couldn’t paint the mask. “It would then just be Donatello wearing an orange mask.”
Again, this was the peak Karen era. This one is notable for being dumb (and I always mean that in the best way) and having the phrase “Cheese it! It’s the po-po!”
And speaking of dumb, nothing dumber than Newsom being tricked by a bunch of raccoons pretending to be scientists to get people inside and not guarding their trashcans. Man, I love the stupid articles like this, but they were rarely the big hits.
Well, that’s it for now. I can’t believe originally I was going to do only one post of my favorites; at this rate, this is going to be like a dozen parts before I reach the end.
Well, what’s your favorite?
