...in one place such that it caused leftism to collapse into a black hole. It was intended to be a humorous comment on the number of grievances they managed to fit into being...fat...which would enhance the black hole humor.

It is said that if you have to explain the joke it isn't funny. I still think it's funny. But my anecdotal reference probably isn't enough to overcome that generalization. Maybe I should ask some non-liberal non-butt-hurt non-Kansas fans.

-----To translate it into UNIX system administration terms (Randy’s fundamental metaphor for just about everything), the post-modern politically correct atheists were like people who had found themselves in charge of a big and unfathomably complex computer system (viz. society) with no documentation or instructions of any kind, and so whose only way to keep the thing running was to invent and enforce certain rules with a kind of neo-Puritanical rigor, because they were at a loss to deal with any kind of deviations from what they saw as the norm. Whereas people who were wired into a church were like UNIX system administrators who, while they might not understand everything, at least had some documentation, some FAQs and How-tos and README files, providing some guidance on what to do when things got out of whack. -Neil Stephenson, Cyrptonomicon
