Not so much insomnia tonight as a deadline to meet. So here it is almost 3:30 in the morning and I’m watching last Thursday’s Late Night with Conan O’Brien. He’s got Alec Baldwin on doing sort of a cameo, and they’re doing the “In the Year 2000” bit, which I was thinking as it came on about how weird it is that I remember not only when the bit was timely (ie, pre-2000) but that I remember when Conan was new to late-night and a little pathetic (or so he would have had us believe — muwhahahahahaaaa). So but anyway, they’re alternating predictions for the year 2000, and Baldwin just predicted that atheists would win a landmark case in which saying “God bless you” when somebody sneezes is outlawed and in which it’s ruled that one should instead say “Yo, Zippy, you just sprayed me with some nasty.” Cracks me up.
Even as a curmudgeonly liberal-media-conspiring atheist, I think that’s pretty darned funny, though I fully expect the trigger-hair American Atheists to issue a press release (or actually, if I had been watching this when it was new a week ago, I would have expected them to issue a press release) about this blatant discrimination against atheists.
