Over the rainbow, I am crazy,
Bars in the window.
There must have been a door there in the wall
When I came in.
Crazy, over the rainbow, he is crazy.

The following was sent to me by a former colleague at the office. Some of it is meant to be funny, but all of it is true. Muslims are easy to make fun of, for obvious reasons. Unfortunately, much of the western world treat them…
OMG, has someone finally filled that yawning chasm leftover when Dana Carvey stopped doing his “Church Lady” bit on SNL? Well, maybe. You’ll just have to judge for yourselves…
Ladies and gentlemen, it gives me great pleasure to present to you Mrs. Betty Bowers, America’s Best Christian! :P
In one of those “weirdly ironical” twists, yesterday’s really bad mood was both accentuated and relieved by a report on my local morning news that the Ohio State Fair would be opening today, and that the fair’s annual Butter Cow was all ready to go. I mean really, cows sculpted from butter? Life here in “The First World” is just so damned hard! :roll:
But that report did at least remind me of these hilarious Weird Al Yankovic videos… ;)
I simply haven’t been able to get this song out of my head since fellow blogger Poietes posted it on Tuesday. I mean, seriously, is there a better testament to the state of our world today?
Well, it’s been four days since my last post. Hmmm… Guess it’s time to catch you all up!
Oh dear. As is a habit I find hard to resist, I posted the following image to Facebook the other day. To which my nephew, the minister, couldn’t resist going off on a rant about. First claiming that, without Jesus, Dr. Convit wouldn’t have had the abilities he had, and then going on to claim that “Jesus is the reason for hospitals, universities, and the printing press.” He then posed the question “Why is it so easy to embrace resentment, anger, hostility, superstition, occult, and aliens, and yet we have such a hard time with people who live by love?” WTF?!?!
Okay, maybe I overreacted a bit to the little gift the Gawds bestowed upon me the other day. But the “plague” of noisy neighbors that moved in next door that day was like rubbing salt in the wound! I tell ya, after just two days of being awakened at the crack of dawn by what sounds like a complete herd of badly raised children screaming and stomping around in the room right next to mine, I now find myself having some rather disturbing thoughts on how I might go about restoring a little order…
No, this isn’t another rant about religion or the absurdity of religious beliefs. I’ll leave that (this time) to the fine people that posted the two images I’ve included to help make my point. No my friends, this short little rant is aimed squarely at those demigods of Automattic – a name which, today, reminds me way too much of that movie Transcendence – the Almighty folks at WordPress!
