Check out the animated show Bat out of Hell on Kickstarter!


I am not. Check this out by Larry Doyle on Huffington Post Comedy site.

It seemed way over the top, and I was thinking about actually Snopeing this, but dug deeper on HuffPost, and found something like an explanation and claiming satire. I guess he got duffied, and is defiantly asserting his intent. Basically he is explaining the joke rather than apologizing.

This is the explanation here.

(He probably hates Tolkien too.)
(NOTE: Please note the use of our new word in a sentence, “he got duffied”)


  1. Jonathan Webb says:

    The walk-backs and explanations are always the worst part.

    Thanks C.M.

  2. Really, we should feel sorry for Larry Doyle. He’s at that dreadful cross-roads in his life — you know the one where you wake up and face the chilling revelation that You’re Not Funny, and probably never were.

  3. Oh, no! Larry Doyle is insulting the Bride of Christ! What to do? What to do?

    I know. Let’s just wait and see where he will be in 2,000 years or so…

    sat·ire   /ˈsætaɪər/ Show Spelled[sat-ahyuhr] Show IPA noun
    1. the use of irony, sarcasm, ridicule, or the like, in exposing, denouncing, or deriding vice, folly, etc.
    2. a literary composition, in verse or prose, in which human folly and vice are held up to scorn, derision, or ridicule.
    3. a literary genre comprising such compositions.
    4. hollering “nanny-nanny boo boo, stick your head in doo doo!”

  5. Cubeland Mystic says:

    “I had thought that the gratuitous references to NAMBLA, or tying the Church to terrorism based on their behavior during the Inquisitions, would have been a tip-off.”

    He is right in this sense, that is why I dug deeper. I actually scrolled up to see it was the comedy section, then I looked for more stuff and found the apology.

    Is Larry Doyle famous or something? The problem I have with it is I took it seriously, because it sounds like other things I have heard about us. I am not surprised. I won’t be surprised when they put us on the cattle cars either, but that is just me.

  6. Betty Duffy says:

    One of these days, i’m going to duffy you in the combox, but I just tried to think of a ripe tomato to throw here, and duffying is actually harder than it seems. Maybe it would help to be drunk.
