Day 5 of the Tin Cup Rattle

Dearest minions. Many people think that we Dark Lords have it easy. But all those human heads aren’t just handed to me on a silver platter. There are skilled professionals demanding wages and threatening to rampage through the village in a berserker rage if I don’t pay them. Nor does the power company give the electricity for my experiments, electrodes, and agony booths for free. Plus, you would not believe how much thin gruel has gone up. The there’s the after hours cleaning crew in the Pits of Despair. And don’t even get me started on what it takes to heat a perfectly vertical tower carved from pure obsidian. Even with the latest geothermal technology harvesting the subterranean fires from my Volcanic Mountain of Fury we still have to cut back on showers for the shuffling hideous spawn of my perverted science. And that whole theme song plan?:

Turns out Coulton gets all the royalties for that! So that was a total financial bust.

So: If you are grateful that I have not used you or anyone you love in my pony/monkey/human gene splicing program, then please consider a gift to this blog and click on the PayPal button to the right so that CAEI can stay on the air and our kids get fed. You can either make a straight donation or, if you like to get something for your money (something beyond this blog that you’ve come to love and depend on, I mean), you can buy my books, CDs, and DVDs. And if you’d rather not do the PayPal thang, feel free to email me and ask for my snailmail address. I’ll happily take a check instead.

Don’t think somebody else will do it. Today’s your day to step up and say, “GIVE ME MORE TREATMENTS OF CATHOLIC THEOLOGY, CULTURAL COMMENTARY AND, WELL, WEIRD STUFF LIKE THIS!”:

And don’t forget, I’ll come and speak for you on all manner of fascinating Catholic teaching ranging from 101 Reasons Not to be Catholic, to Scripture, to Sacraments, to Our Lady and beyond!

    Dear Mark,
    I remember how much your talk on Mary influenced me when you came to Sydney Australia. I hope you’ll be back soon. In the mean time I’ve ordered “Salt and Light”. I don’t believe the price includes enough for postage to Australia and the true value of the book (knowing the style and content of your writing). So I will also donate.
    Wishing that you have a happy & Holy Christmas with your family.

    Ah. Reminds me of my WoW-playing days. Mixed feelings.
