A certain yahoo (ahem, Pat Robertson) recently proved his stupidity while reporting about the devastating earthquake in Haiti and the millions of fellow human beings killed, injured and left without homes.
So Sacramento comedian Keith Lowell Jensen, known as the atheist for The Coexist? Comedy Tour and his regular Wednesday night comedy show at Luna’s Café & Juice Bar, responded to the “news” anchor’s insanity—he made a voodoo doll. Check out Jensen’s “How to Make Your Own Pat Robertson Voodoo Doll” video at http://keithlowelljensen.blogspot.com. The doll is actually quite a work of art: Stuffed with $100 bills, it serves as a perfect teething ring for Jensen’s baby.
Yet he knows voodoo dolls don’t really do anything, since atheists don’t believe in supernatural powers and “pacts with the devil”—damn it. So, Jensen and a slew of other comedians are doing something worthwhile to help the Haitians recover from the horrible earthquakes. Ngaio Bealum, Dennis Gaxiola, Chazz Hawkins, Marcella Arguello and Ray Molina will join Jensen to host a comedy show at Punch Line Comedy Club on Tuesday, February 2, at 8 p.m. No, laughter isn’t going to make the suffering go away; it’s probably just as futile as blaming the devastation on pinky promises made with an imaginary, evil being. However, the comedians will donate the entire $20-per-person cover charge to the Red Cross for Haitian earthquake relief.
“We didn’t necessarily have much money to give, but we have funny, and this lets us use that to help Haiti,” Jensen said.
Go to help Haiti, have a chuckle—and don’t forget to bring your Pat Robertson voodoo doll. He’ll love it.
