Robin Williams on the Invention of Golf & My Favorite Dead Poets Society Clip

In a week of bad news, this makes for a good Friday Funny. I just showed this to my boys. Their favorite line was, “with a tiny flag to give you hope.” Williams was such a funny and brilliant man. One more story & clip to share: I was a sensitive college sophomore when Dead Poets [Read More...]

All In On WooWoo – A Little Friday Funny

So, I’m attempting to come down from a bit of an unplanned blog hiatus. I didn’t mean to orphan the blog for a few weeks. I just needed some space from the daily grind of producing a post, mostly in order to engage with my family in a more intentional way this summer. I’ve been [Read More...]

What Was Your Worst Summer Job Ever?: Jimmy Fallon’s Hashtags

I’ve had a lot of bad summer jobs. I drove a school bus for summer school. These kids were not happy. I drove a vending machine route–not glamorous. I did, however, quickly get over the embarrassment of buying cheeseburgers with dimes. Worst summer job had to be working ball diamond maintenance, dragging and chalking fields [Read More...]

At What Point did Laughter Become a Problem? (A Little Friday Funny)

I don’t usually post stuff like this. Cats, dogs, and babies always seem a bit below the belt for a Friday Funny. But this is such a rich emotional experience. I couldn’t resist. If you have kids this probably happened to you a few times–the first full on belly laugh. The kid just goes for [Read More...]

ChristianTingle.com Part 2 – Saving Ourselves for Post-Marriage

“Couldn’t find any precedent for that in the Bible, but we’re gonna go with it.” Christians… we are such a weird people. Thankfully we have folks like Tripp & Tyler who continue to poke at Christian sub-culture & teach us how to laugh at ourselves (and hopefully change & grow). Happy Friday everyone. [Read more...]

ChristianTingle.com: This is Wrong (and Hilarious) on So Many Levels

Every subculture is strange, but evangelical subculture is stranger. There are these highly defended idiosyncratic cultural markers influenced by a small number of Christian entertainers, megachurch pastors, authors, and celebrities. It’s a language.

Stephen Colbert Taking Over “Late Night” – Will it Work?: A Little Friday Funny

CBS announced that Stephen Colbert will be leaving Comedy Central to replace the outgoing David Letterman as host of “The Late Show,” in what has to be seen as a pretty big gamble. Finding a host with enough appeal to a younger demographic to compete with the quick success of Jimmy Fallon’s takeover of “The [Read More...]

Rev.’s Take on Church Growth – the IED Methodology: A Little Friday Funny

I actually think I might have sat in on this session at one time or another… a touch of reductio ad absurdum  from Fr. Roland Wise can be helpful in terms of helping us to acknowledge just how deeply our faith has been shaped by the American story of bigger, better, stronger, higher, faster. Happy [Read More...]

Jesus Smoothies: A Little Friday Funny

Every now and then I have one of those days when I struggle to make sense of the work I do. One of my favorite antidotes – if I can find the time – is to watch an episode of Rev. from the BBC. It’s my own creamy tropical Jesus splash, which is, for the [Read More...]
