    That was fun. There is so much to learn. It took me all morning just to read the name of Stanley's town. it took two more hours to memorize it. Reminds me of the 8 inch Hawaiian fish with the big name—humuhumunukunukuapaoa. Top o' the marnin'!

    This is why I like your blog, John. So educational–I learn something every time I come by. Hope the alcoholic snakes got into recovery somehow…

    Hello there, John!

    After reading your post, I think,

    "This is how entertaining enlightenment should feel!"

    Your freely-chosen choice of words

    really made me smile!

    A flute within a flute

    was inflexibly clever.

    I was just out playing leprechaun tag.

    I've been gladdened by my luck in landing here.

    "Tag!" You're it!

    1958?

    Me, too.

    The Veggie Tales version of the story of St. Patrick was different … I guess that happens sometimes when scholars interpret information differently, huh?

    Man that was funny. I especially loved “ever-squozen”. And the “constantly cascading..” alliteration. And, well, everything else really. It’s amazing how sitting in front of your computer and laughing out loud can make you feel great. Good times. Thanks John.

    Amazing. Compare this to the Russell Moore article on the same subject (oops, I mean, there is no comparison!)

    Such an opportunity wasted on foolishness.

      I have no idea what you mean by either of these observations. The second one sure sounds like an insult, but … I'll assume/hope it's not.
