This  weekly feature gives you the best of what’s good and what’s bad out there in the snarkiverse. This content is explored more in-depth on our weekly radio show, Snarky Faith, so you should check that out too. Without further adieu… here’s your rundown this week of the good, bad and ugly of the interwebs. Enjoy!

• Need an escape from the orange turd-tornado in Washington DC? How about a shark-filled tornado instead? Yes, the fifth (you read that correctly) installment of the craptastic film (if we can call it that) series, Snarknado, is coming back for more. This escapism at its made-for-tv movie finest. Five different shark-infested tornados? If there was ever proof that climate change is real, this must be it. [EW]

• Oh, Fox and Friends, why, oh why, do you try to act like snarky theologians? That’s my job you silly little tools. They were trying to mock Rev. Al Sharpton who tweeted last week that Jesus was a refugee, which, in fact, he was (read Matthew 2:13). If you’re going to try and throw shade at Rev. Al, at least get your facts straight. Even Pope Francis said in 2014, “He [Jesus] was a refugee.” Sounds like someone (and their friends) needs to go back to Sunday school.

• Anyone want to see what it looks like to have a civil dialogue between an atheist and a Catholic? Check out the interchange between Ricky Gervais and Stephen Colbert on The Late Show. Both are respectful but stand their ground. This is what civility and respect should look like. We need more of this in our world.

• Looking for a good, informative read? You should check out The Atlantic’s piece on the rise of Putin’s America. It’s informative and frightening about how Trump’s ventriloquist became the ideological hero of nationalists everywhere.  [The ATL]

• Want some good satire? You should go and check out Karl Giberson’s new piece called “Jesus at Trump Tower.” Just like the title suggests, it’s a fictitious conversation between the Son of God and the POS POTUS. It’s beautiful, it’s snarky, it’s everything… plus Karl is on our show next week.  [Huff Post]

• Did you catch this in the news? Mc Donald is looking to erase the separation of church and state? Yep, that’s a thing… a scary thing. [Huff Post]

• I loved Netflix’s new Stranger Things ad, but really? Are we supposed to wait until the end of October for this? Com’on! #firstworldproblems

• Hopefully, you caught this during the Super Bowl. If not, you should really spend the five minutes to see 84 Lumber’s full Super Bowl ad? It’s a beautiful and heartbreaking story about a mother and daughter’s symbolic migrant journey towards becoming legal American citizens. Deemed too controversial to show in its entirety, you can see the whole video here. Enjoy.

good // bad

This is a new weekly feature giving you the best of what’s good and what’s bad out there in the snarkiverse. This content is explored more in-depth on our weekly radio show, Snarky Faith, so you should check that out too. Without further adieu… here’s your rundown this week of the good, bad and ugly of the interwebs. Enjoy!

• When one thinks about the state of Mississippi, what comes to your mind? Progressive thought? A full mouth of teeth? Perhaps, indoor plumbing? Well, none of those may be standard in MS, but State Representative, Tom Weathersby, has finally found the key to fixing the armpit of the United States and [spoilers] it’s not deodorant or education. Weathersby’s contribution is putting a stop to… [wait for it] saggy pants. God bless our public servants their ineptitude knows no bounds! [Huff Post]

• Like Starbucks coffee and immigrants? Well, this is for you. Starbucks has said it will hire 10,000 refugees worldwide in next 5 years. It’s a beautiful, bold move that has some boycotting the franchise. Well done, Starbucks… you’ve always had my gold-card-love business and will continue to do so!  [NPR]

Stranger Things won big at the SAG awards with is amazing in itself, but David Harbour’s (Chief Hopper) speech brought the house down. It was eloquent and timely. Bonus points for Winona Ryder’s coked out reactions while on stage. Wino Forever! Sadly, no one thanked Barb for her sacrifice. RIP Barb. You are not forgotten.

• Feeling like you took a bottle of crazy pills when you read the news lately? Well, all I can offer you is some delightful escapism. Ryan Adams covers Radiohead’s Karma Police as an anthem of dissent. It’s beautiful, haunting and timely. Adams finds gold in the ashes & fire of our current crisis.

• I know that everything seems wibbly wobbly right now, but David Tennant assures us that everything will be alright. He is The Doctor, so I’m inclined to believe him. Allons-y!

This is a new weekly feature giving you the best of what’s good and what’s bad out there in the snarkiverse. This content is explored more in-depth on our weekly radio show, Snarky Faith, so you should check that out too. With out further adieu… here’s your rundown this week of the good, bad and ugly of the interwebs. Enjoy!

• McDonald’s apparently wanted to give you options for the ways you got diabetes. They’re now testing out different sizes of the Big Mac. Way to Make America Fat Again! Buda bump ba ba! [Ad Age]

• Feeling a little crazy living while living in Trump’s bizarro world? Like maybe you lost your mind? Well, a truck driver in Indiana lost his marbles… all 38,000 pounds of them. His loss is our snarky gain. If your day is bad, just know that his was much worse. [Huff Post]

• Port-a-potty conspiracy at the inauguration? Apparently, the D.C. septic provider, Don’s Johns, found his toilet signage taped over during last week’s event. Can’t the Don, take a joke? Or was this more of a metaphor for the next four years? Either way, it’s always good to find a reason to laugh while the world is going down the crapper. [CNN]

• Need some escapism? Sure, we all do. Well, Vimeo is premiering several Sundance Film Festival shorts over on their platform. [Vimeo]

• British comedian, Jonathan Pie, has a beautiful and NSFW way he articulates what many of us are thinking about the Trump inauguration speech and the state of the world. Tragedy, meet comedy. Did I mention that it’s NSFW?

• If you can push past the accent, Slovenian psychoanalytic philosopher, Slavoj Žižek, has some intriguing ideas about the 2016 election and paints a hopeful future… just not in the way you think.

• At least the Dutch have a warm welcome for our new President… well sort of. Or to put it in their own words, “Because we realize it’s better for us to get along, we decided to introduce our tiny country to him. In a way that will probably appeal to him the most.” Thank you, Netherlands!
