Let's play Richard Dawkins Twitter Meltdown Bingo!


With Richard Dawkins rapidly accelerating his schedule of Twitter meltdowns recently, it’s clearly time for some RICHARD DAWKINS TWITTER MELTDOWN BINGO!

The rules are simple:

  1. Follow Richard Dawkins on Twitter.
  2. Make sure you’re following the correct Richard Dawkins. This one. While this other Richard Dawkins might seem indistinguishable from the real thing, don’t be fooled! He is merely a stunningly convincing Dawkins impersonator.
  3. As soon as you notice Dawkins — the real Dawkins — saying something, you know, really really Dawkinsish, pop over here to generate your own randomized DAWKINS TWITTER MELTDOWN BINGO card, because, I guarantee you, a meltdown is immi
  4. Sit back and wait for the BINGOS to roll in.
  5. Profit?

Oh, and just so you know, I can edit the list used to generate the cards, so if you have any ideas for new squares, or if you think I might have gone a little overboard with the roadkill cannibalism thing, or you think it needs more “dundridges,” post your thoughts in the comments below.

All the items in my DAWKINS TWITTER MELTDOWN BINGO list — even the roadkill cannibalism thing — are based at least loosely on things he’s actually said on Twitter, or in the little essays he’s written defending his behavior on Twitter.

Oh, so you don’t believe me about the roadkill cannibalism thing? Here he is talking about it with his actual mouth.

And that honeypot thing? Here you go.

I told you never to doubt me.

EDIT: For more context about his meltdowns, this piece is a good intro. And thanks for the suggestions! I’ll be adding some more squares about Christina Hoff Sommers and his now-deleted penis Tweet.

Irn Bru is wonderful, if you like sweet things. Mr C calls it drinkable bubble gum.

My uncle who puts it in whiskey, though? That’s weird. I think his taste buds are broken.

Irn Bru sounds like Fanta, only stronger. Think I’ll pass. 😛

To be fair, this was pub haggis, so it was probably going to be awful anyway. I’d expected … I dunno, some sort of different flavour, the way steak and kidney pie <3 doesn't taste the same as basic meat pie.

Oh gods those steak and kidney pies from the bakery in Pimlico … ::drool::

Ha, Lutefisk and aquavit are a near-annual thing for me too.

As kids, my dad and uncles used to eat a norwegian boiled potato dumpling as a sort of Scandinavian soul food. A couple decades ago, they decided they were going to try and recreate the recipe, and made it an annual “mens night” experiment with myself, my brother and my cousins.

It has since grown to include aquavit and lutefisk, as well as oysters, gravlax, sushi tuna, ham, beer, scotch, espresso and hangovers.

CMD: We finally got a Trader Joe’s where I am in NY but no Two-Buck Chuck. 🙁 I was so excited to try it because I’d heard so much about it. I think it has something to do with NY’s laws regarding the sale of wine in grocery stores. Basically the only wine we have in grocery stores here is the “wine” equivalent of Wine Coolers.

Oh, Mammotheers! Here are another pair of Dawkins Best for the Bingo game.

First up, a wonderful example of Dr. Dawkins moral wisdom:

Richard Dawkins: ‘immoral’ not to abort if foetus has Down’s syndrome

You can read all about it here:

And now for the follow-up “apology” :

Woo! Dicky-boy at his finest!

It’s almost like Dawkins doesn’t know very much about Down’s Syndrome or (and this is sooooo much worse) he knows but doesn’t care.

FFS as an example of a person with the condition who really appears to be both enjoying life and contributing.

Yep, Down’s Syndrome has a range of effects. You really can’t judge some one’s ‘worth’ based on that, alone.

t’s almost like Dawkins doesn’t know very much about Down’s Syndrome or (and this is sooooo much worse) he knows but doesn’t care.

pallygirl, I would wager that the ridiculous Dr. does not know a lot about a lot of things. Thanks for the link. I have never seen the show (do not have a tv) but I am impressed by what I read. My very best friend, who is a sister-from-another-set of parents, is a wonderful woman who is autistic. She is smart, funny and a terrific writer. She is also one of the most loving and patient people I have ever met. She is president of an amazing organization serving the needs of differently abled people, especially kids with Aspergers and autism. And, to top it off, she is married to one of the most brilliant theoretical physicists in the world.

So much for “immoral” birthing of folk. Phooey on Dr. Dawkins! The idea that”some people” should not be allowed to be born is immoral. And, anyway, any decision about birth and abortion belongs only to the parents and, especially, the woman. I can only add that I am very happy that Dawkins has no political power. I shudder to think.

@grumpyoldnurse: thanks for sharing another example.

@samantha: Dawkins, being a biologist, really shouldn’t go anywhere near a topic that even remotely resembles eugenics. Or social sciences. Or philosophy. He is an evil person, who uses his prestige to promote horrible views.
