Church Sign Epic Fails, “Tax Free” Edition

I actually kinda like tax day. It’s the one time of year when choosing writing as a career actually sort of pays off. Being broke rules!!!

We say “tax free” but it’s really more of a flat tax kind of thing. You know, like, give us one tenth of everything you make and you don’t have to pay taxes on it. What a deal!

Actually, they call it Disney World; I call it hell. But no matter how I explain that to them, they still want to go. Kids!!!

So, what? Beer and Hymns ain’t good enough for you? You’re just sooooo cool you have to go and one-up us with a Jack-and-Coke tent revival?

So, usually adult movies make some kind of sexy play on the original movie title. This one, they just kept exactly the same (shivers).

That is, unless you don’t believe what we believe. Then we’re all over it!

because if you hadn’t, I couldn’t have written this swell church sign, telling you how grateful I am for you waking me up…wait, is this a Charlie Kaufmann movie?

Oh, snap! Atonement theology and a slam on the President, all in nine words. Now that’s word economy!

    Funny as always, Christian. But on the last one I didn’t read it as an Obama slam. I thought it was more talking about change in a general sense (character/moral or whatever). Weird how dfferent people read things like that differently.
