Numnutz of the Week (for Outstanding Nuclear Boneheadedness):
- The late evangelist Billy Graham’s daughter wishes all of us in the US a Happy Nuclear Detonation! because, like, we’re all sinners… and we deserve to be nuked… according to her. But then again, she’s an evangelical who wants the world to end, so hey, why not get the ball rolling?
