  • Dude, you’re feasting on your own!

  • Patrick Dunn

    Lame.  Trying to morph Christopher Hitchens’ death with your stupid fascination with the baby-eating atheist meme.

  • Erik Cameron

    Well dug, it’s cannibalism.
    Hmm… just had a thought. For most religions killing members of other tribes isn’t considered murder. Does that mean eating people that don’t pray to the same god as you isn’t cannibalism?

  • cute….

  • Cutencrunchy

    I laughed – cute! always good to stay light, have fun, read broadly, and seek the truth unapologetic-ally!

  • bigjohn756

    You really should be eating the indoctrinated ones because we have too many of them and not enough hitchlings.

  • Pseudonym

    If you’re going to mix a meme with Hitch’s death, it’d better be erudite and witty.

  • You’re not supposed to eat Hitchlings, Hemant.

  • phaenarete

    Hemant is being a cheeky monkey and that is why we love him. The real sample sentence is:
    Her parents are skeptics, so they are raising her as a hitchling.

    i think you just solved world hunger

  • lameduckgod

    My favorite new word is a lot meaner and even less P.C.  “Religitard”

  • Drakk

    I prefer “religiot”. Doesn’t come with any negative connotations towards people who are actually mentally ill.

  • JayARRRRRR!

    I had a little Hitchling, but when she was 20 or so, the Dark Side got her. Where did I fail?

  • Anonymous

    Cool! Turns out I was brought up a Hitchling!
