Memories Pizza made waves this week when they openly declared they would deny catering service to gay weddings and other practices they say would infringe upon their religious beliefs - as is now within their legal right in Indiana. Predictably, late night television, the internet, and Twitter had a field day with the small business in an even smaller town.

Nowhere is that more apparent though on the company's Yelp page, which now resembles the twisted amalgamation of every internet comment thread you'd never want to read in your life ever. Above you can see but a fraction of the impotent web-rage that the pizza place has generated, both in support and dreision. Yelp staff has already undergone an extensive process to remove violent and threatening comments from the page, but what remains is horrifying enough on its own. 

Memories set up a GoFundMe crowdsourcing page to cover the "financial loss endured by the proprietors' stand for faith," generating $240,000 in less than 24 hours. The more cynical among us might consider this a blatant cash grab and publicity stunt for a tiny pizza joint in an unknown town, but I mean... It costs a lot of money to generate this kind of controversy and garner support from American conservatives, right?

Fail of the Day: Congresswomen Eleanor Holmes Norton’s Terrible Parking Job Caught on Video

Between drunk Secret Service agents and Eleanor Holmes Norton, maybe we need to give all of Washington a refresher course in how to drive.

The D.C. delegate tried and failed to park her car outside the U.S. Capitol Wednesday, and the mess was all captured in the video above.

“If she parks like that she should not be a member of Congress anymore,” says one of the people watching the disaster.

In addition to being completely out of alignment with the rest of the vehicles, she apparently banged into the car next to her multiple times during the half-hour long debacle. Eventually she and her aide just walk away as if it’s all NBD.

Her office later told Roll Call that there were no damages and they left a card on the windshield so they could contact them.

Not sure that warrants the “worst parking job ever” award – a quick YouTube search reveals much worse – but it’s certainly up there in the rankings.

And Mr. Piggly Wiggly is theclear winner for recent parking lot fails. That one will be tough to beat.

Nutjob of the Day: Insane Woman Asks Rick Santorum Longest, Most Incoherent Question Ever

Rick Santorum may have said some pretty crazy stuff in the past, but that’s nothing compared to this woman.

Santorum was taking questions at the South Carolina National Security Action Summit last weekend, when a lady stepped up to the microphone and went off on the most insane rant ever.

Did you know President Obama the “Communist dictator” once tried to nuke Charleston? Yup, according this retired school teacher it’s totally true.

“He’s trying to destroy the United States,” she says. “The Congress knows this. What kind of games is the Congress of the United States playing with the citizens of the United States?”

She doesn’t seem to ever really get to the meat of her question and eventually they cut her off. But it takes a while, and Santorum just stands there pretending to listen.

“I’m not a sitting member of the Senate,” he says afterwards. “So I’m not taking blame for any of that stuff.”

Hate Mail of the Day: President Obama Reads Mean Tweets on Jimmy Kimmel Live

President Obama receives his fair share of criticism online, but he’s embracing all the hate in a new edition of “Mean Tweets” on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Watch him react to a #ThanksObama and someone who does’t approve of his dad-jeans style.

“Is there any way we could fly Obama to some golf course halfway around the world and just leave him there?” writes one girl.

“I think that’s a great idea,” he says.

You can also watch Kimmel’s post-Mean Tweets interview with Obama below, in which he says he didn’t think those messages were very mean at all.

“You should see what the Senate says about me,” he says.

He also talks about why he still has a BlackBerry and how he doesn’t actually use Twitter himself.
