The Truth about "Two Towers"

The bulletin from Landover Baptist Church reports the truth about the new Lord of the Rings Movie:

"Christian Moviegoers Beware! The Two Towers is Homo Slang For Erect Hobbit Penises."

Okay, that's just satire, but there are still plenty of reasons to skip this film.

Crappy News Day

A Democrat gets re-elected, the Heels lose, and Miami outlasts Sister Katie's Virginia Tech Hokies.

Blegh, blegh, blegh.

What Would Jesus Do?

...He would give a shout-out to Joe Bob Briggs for writing this punchy article for UPI:

This latest assault by IQ-challenged Christian greenies -- the "What Would Jesus Drive?" ad campaign run by the Evangelical Environmental Network -- is easily answered, in fact. He would WALK. He once walked 75 miles from Nazareth to Jerusalem just to attend the feast. He could have hitched a ride. They had donkeys and other people-bearing animals. HE DIDN'T. I only remember two times when Jesus wasn't walking. He had to get on that ship so he could walk on water, and he had to enter Jerusalem on an ass so that he could fulfill a prophecy. If you'll recall, he didn't use the ass because he was in a hurry. There wasn't anything to look forward to on that trip.

And the punch line:

In other words, he wasn't a political sort of guy. He was the Son of God. If you really wanna ask what he would do, I hope you're prepared to go the whole nine yards. After all, the most important thing he did ... was die.

Leaving aside his dig at pro-lifers, this piece is simply classic. Go read the whole thing.

Cool Site of the Day

E-Bay on steroids: bid online for government-seized and bank-foreclosed assets! This site is really addictive. I've had my eye on the 40-acre ranch in New Mexico that currently is going for $5100. (As I write, the bidding ends in 21 hours). After I finish looking at the real estate and timeshare listings, I'm going to poke through the listings from the fire sale for Enron's assets. Feel the excitement!

Woo Hoo! It's Snowing

Much as I long for the sun of LA and So Cal, I gotta admit that this is pretty cool. (Especially that I don't have to go into work today!)
