Now that's sharp

Great gonzo's gonads, a big thank you to Chris Trotter for pointing to Mark Ames' eXile. This is industrial strength satire from a kindred vicious mind. Take this classic reprint of 20 Reasons We're Ashamed to be Americans. A sample:
We would seriously consider converting to Islam if someone would slowly saw [Seth] McFarlane’s head off while forcing him to sing the theme song to “Three’s Company,” complete with laugh track.
Vampire Squid Hunter Matt Taibbi has co-written Sex, Drugs and Libel in the New Russia with Ames. This pair could quite well qualify for the reincarnations of Raoul Duke and Dr Gonzo. We are in awe.
