Kickstarter Seeks To Re-Create Hell On Earth

There is a place in Michigan called Hell. It’s an unincorporated settlement, meaning that it’s a place without any local government below the level of Putnam Township in Livingston County.

In its present incarnation, Hell is kind of hokey. It’s something like a Halloween theme park, populated by goofy cartoon images of vampires, zombies […]

The Revolutionary Party has been formed by Princess Khadijah M. Jacob-Fambro, who stands on street corners accusing others of being undercover […]

Robert Milnes, Green Party Candidate For President? No. No. Please No.

Memo to the Green Party, such as it is: Please, can someone over there step forward as a serious presidential candidate soon? Here’s who we’ve got as Green Party presidential candidates so far:

There’s Midge Potts, a die-hard 9/11 Truther who believes that no plane hit the Pentagon on September 11, 2011.

It is in […]

The Interview Hack – An Inside Job?

Here on Irregular Times, we often debunk the ridiculous conspiracy theories that political extremists concoct to justify their absurd ideologies.

Tonight, I have a conspiracy theory of my own to introduce. It comes after watching The Interview, a movie starring Seth Rogen and James Franco.
