Joking that an elderly religious man died from suffocating on a penis is not my idea of anything "comical." It is to the George Carlin wannabes at Wonkette though, reporting on a vandalized Jerry Falwell page on Wikipedia:
Something happened to somebody famous, so guess what happened on Wikipedia … that’s right, the person’s page was comically vandalized! Nobody ever gets tired of a really good joke.
You'll recall that in March, MRC's Brent Bozell wrote about Wikipedia's bias against conservatives, but this is ridiculous.
On Wonkette's part, posting such an item served only to provide another comment thread for wingunuts to spew hatred about Falwell and religious conservatives, such as this dirge by commenter "choirboy":
It gives me great comfort to know that Pastor Falwell is picking up his gift bag in hell right about now.
I was so hoping that he would be alive for another decade or two hooked up to a breathing machine and feeding tube so he could share in the good times that Ms Schiavo had for so long. Alas, not to be. So, burn Jerry burn, ya fuh-reek.
The same jerk also posted a blasphemous comment that dragged Jesus Christ into the mix:
Cocksucking is an old Evangelical tradition. It's called the anointing of the tonsils. Come Lord Jesus.
