Oh, I don’t know. They may be hungry for other things besides food.
Or a Slip 'n Slide and a big funnel?

“The militia folks left, what do we do with this?” Super horny ornithologists: “Well…”
I’m not sure it’s being delivered directly to the refuge. This amusingly frustrated gentleman appears to be speaking from the kitchen of a private residence.
Or worse – the militants will just dump the stuff into the refuge.
As far as i know things are not being delivered directly to the building. From what i recall the posted address they’re requesting things to be sent is a PO Box.
Just because they don’t respect SOME laws doesn’t mean that they’re going to dump a 55-gallon drum of lubricant into a nature reserve.
That’s just a slippery slope argument.
So they can go into town to pick up their mail? And yet they’re begging for food to be sent to them? Can’t they just, you know, buy food?
What you did there I sees it.
Haven’t these guys ever heard of a go fund me?
Commence with the man on man love’un.
No one is accusing them of being smart
While I’m all for teasing these nutbars with useless gifts, I have to wonder – why all the (generally speaking) gay-themed stuff? Ha ha ho ho – gay stuff is sooo dirty & funny! It’s the most offensive stuff you could send!
Seems like there are plenty of things to send them that would equally (or more greatly) annoy them: moldy bread, thawed previously frozen food, a barrel of Skittles, books for some learnin’, copies of the Constitution…
It’s natural, water-based and biodegradable.
They’re broke, living off government assistance and their wives’ jobs.
Their most recent wish-list includes pads and tampons (along with four different kinds of tobacco products), so maybe there are one or two lucky ladies who will get to share in all that raw masculine virility.
Or at least try to find some private time with one of the dildos while the guys chew tobacco and struggle to find reception on that Wal-Mart radio.
I don’t interpret it as necessarily gay-themed. I see this method of mocking having roots in Texas students open-carrying dildos to protest open carry laws (as covered on boing boing) and photoshopping dongs in where politicians were holding guns (as covered on boing boing).
I translate the message as equal parts “you are a dick” and “go fuck yourself,” but there’s also a tinge of “make love not war.” Your mileage may vary.
Good points. Thanks.
It’s the most offensive stuff you could send!
I do see your point, but I think it’s about what these jokers would find most offensive/repulsive/shocking, rather than intended to suggest the senders feel that way.
Yeah. . . I dunno. . . I can see them finding a tactical use for this, like pouring it around outside when they think the authorities are about to break down the doors. Funny, but actual porn would have been better, since it will sap their vital bodily fluids during those long boring hours of waiting .
Even better: food they find disgusting but will be forced to eat if/when the place is put under an actual siege, like dried crickets and meal worms, or Goya cuitlacoche (a.k.a. “corn smut”, corn kernels infected with a black fungus.)
