Last time, I ran this contest:
A recent poll asked 1,600 British children to “name the individual they considered the biggest celebrity.”
In first place: Simon Cowell.
In second place: God.
I think that gives new meaning to the word “Idolatry“…
But it raises another question:
In what other ways is Simon Cowell better than God?
Here are the Top 5 answers (with submitters):
When Simon Cowell gets angry, he insults you. When God gets angry, he turns you into salt.
Simon Cowell only tells you that you are a bad person (singer, dresser, whatever) if you are.
When Simon Cowell judges people, there is video documentation.
Eventually, people will stop talking about Simon Cowell.
Simon Cowell’s standards are actually possible to meet.
Congratulations to the winners! The top three will be receiving specially-made Friendly Atheist wristbands (in the color of their choice), sent to me by blog reader Shauna and her sister Danni!
If you’d like to win your own wristband, here is the new contest:
The atheist bus ads are now in full force over in England.
It begs the question:
Where else will we be seeing ads about atheism in the future?
Funny and creative answers will have a shot at winning.
