What Captain Picard Always Orders at Chinese Restaurants

Learning to Speak Hoosier

These would have been more useful to me a few years ago, but I can enjoy them now. HT to Jen McCreight for pointing them out. The second one becomes particularly funny when you realize that the speaker describing his travels hasn’t left Indiana. [Read more...]

Jesus Christ, Pirate?

At the site Center for a Stateless Society, Kevin Carson has posted a provocative piece on Jesus and piracy. Given the source, they presumably won’t mind my reproducing it here (while giving credit where credit is due): After reportedly feeding a crowd of five thousand with five loaves and two fishes, Jesus Christ of Nazareth [Read More...]

A Cowboy Walks Into a Bar

Voldemort is Martin Luther’s Brother

My son said to me yesterday, “Voldemort is Martin Luther’s brother.” It took a second to process the sentence, realize that he was talking about actors depicting these characters, and that the sentence was in fact true. I still think it is a funny sentence even so… [Read more...]

Around the Biblioblogosphere: Nick Norelli Stinks, Thom Stark to Eat Shoe

Nick Norelli may have been spared from a serious accident because he stinks (click through to make sure that I am not just making this up). While I am glad Nick is physically OK, I am not so sure about his theology: I must confess that I am not sure why God would save his [Read More...]

Best Birthday Greeting Ever?

I came across this on Facebook (name removed): Yes, once again the planet upon which you live has successfully circumnavigated its star while you have remained afixed upon it. Congratulations and happy [name] Existence day. I think I may just have to make that the way I wish people a “happy birthday” from now on! [Read more...]
