LUTHERAN INSURGENTS ON RAMPAGE

Did the title of this post get your attention? Good! Because that's my only contribution here.

My sole purpose here is to steer you in the direction of "Iowahawk's" bizarre corner of the blogosphere and the have-a-good-chuckle post his deviantly fertile mind conjured up in the wake of the Newsweek debacle. It's a gem.

Maybe we all need to take a deep breath anyway. Here's a taste?

Decorah, IA - The debris-strewn streets of this remote Midwestern hamlet remain under a tense 24-hour curfew tonight, following weekend demonstrations by rock- and figurine-throwing Lutheran farm wives that left over 200 people injured and leveled the Whippy Dip dairy freeze. The rioting appeared to be prompted, in part, by a report in Newsweek magazine claiming military guards at Spirit Lake’s notorious Okoboji internment center had flushed lutefisk down prison toilets. Newsweek’s late announcement of a retraction seems to have done little to quell the inflamed passions of Lutheran insurgents in the region, as outbreaks of violent mailbox bashings and cow tippings have been reported from Bowbells, North Dakota to Pekin, Illinois.
