New Biblical Research Reveals the Demonic Nature of the Platypus

Longtime readers of Purgatory are well aware of my affection for the noble platypus. The animal is a duck-billed, beaver-tailed, egg laying mammalian wonder. It is one of the few mammals armed with poison that is injected by a spur in the back leg of males (sorry, ladies, no poison for you). The bill has an electrolocation system that can detect prey by sensing the electrical fields of muscle contractions.

The platypus is a  marvel.

In keeping the Hitchensonian principle of religion poisons everything I wrote a guest post on Atheist Pig titled New Biblical Research Reveals the Demonic Nature of the Platypus. Take a look at it and enjoy.

I also wanted to announce a small victory against plagiarism. I noticed that my post Pope announces new entrance policy to Heaven got placed on Christwire, a spoof site satirizing Christians. I was surprised to see that I was not apparently the author of my own piece, someone else had taken credit for that comedic rambling.

Well, that wasn't really going to work for me.

At all.

I hastily shot off an email and proceeded to tweet on how that post was so funny it got plagiarized and placed on Christwire. Long story short, I got a very pleasant email from the site stating that the piece would be taken down, and it has.
