Preview For This Week's Top 10 Conservative Idiots

A man who claims that Earth is flat tried to leave it in a homemade rocket Saturday but failed to overcome the gravitational force of a 13,166,800,000,000,000,000,000,000-pound sphere directly beneath him.

In fairness to Mike Hughes, he knows how to build a rocket. He built them for many years under the precepts of classical physics, when he was still a relatively conventional daredevil, which is to say, one who believed Earth is round.

But Saturday marked Hughes's third aborted launch since he declared himself a flat-earther last year and announced a multipart plan to fly to space by the end of 2018 so he could prove astronauts have been lying about the shape of the planet.

Why does Wiley Coyote keep using Acme products if they keep failing? Does he have a buy one get one free card? Does he have a credit card? Is he part of some rewards program? Does he get frequent flyer miles and access to presale concert tickets? I want to know!

*audience laughs and applauds*

The Top 10 is off this week so our editors have posted their all time favorites! We talk about the latest version of Left Behind, Mar A Lago fails health inspections, Trump and Pence get schooled on bad logo design, Pizzagate still exists, we school NOFX on why you shouldn't joke about the worst mass shooting in history, Infowars and Goop hawk the same merchandise, and flat earthers are complete idiots. Plus in one of our favorite Top 10 Investigates segments, we discuss the possibilities of micro cheating - is that really a thing? And in one of our favorite Holy Shit segments - our resident pastor asks the question "Would you kill Baby Hitler?" (spoiler alert! Probably). And we also replay that time our exhaustive World Tour took us to New York City (NEW YORK CITY!!!!). And some live music from 30 Seconds To Mars!

Also next week we will post our fan favorite submissions!
