"Art is dangerous. It is one of the attractions:
when it ceases to be dangerous, you don't want it."
- Duke Ellington
Story Short: The noises in my head.
and I swear to Kohler that I am not making this up, a
giant inflatable dog turd broke free of its moorings at a
Swiss art museum. It broke a power line before eventually
crashing into a children's home and breaking a window.
mention this story for three reasons:
(1) I'm amused that somewhere in this world a dog turd can
be considered art.
(2) I can point out that George
Bush looks like a big dog turd.
(3) I get the chance to use the word "dog turd" four
times in public without getting slapped.
Imagine if the mind of the fleet commander of the U.S.
was infiltrated and subjugated by an evil alien entity, one
which subsequently brought the whole of the fleet into armed
with itself. But, through some fortuitous circumstance
the alien entity was driven out of the commanders mind, never
to be seen again.
Here's the question: Would you expect to see the fleet commander
back at work the next day?
It never stopped Jean Luc Picard.
I wonder if Superman ever used the old "Kryptonite" line
on Lois when he couldn't get it up.
I wonder why I would wonder that.
Was there some guy, back in 33 a.d.,
whose only job was to make logs nice and square so they'd
look good for the crucifixions?
We should have used kangaroos instead of wood for crucifixions.
It would make the event more fun for everyone involved plus
you can store spare wine and wafers
in the little pouch.
The most numerous book ever printed is the Bible. I think
this is Jesus' way of getting back at the trees. After all,
you can't be nailed to one and not be expected to show just
a little hostility.
Why are Bible's printed on such crappy paper? You'd
think they'd be printed on something more substantial, something
that would possibly emit an audible thud when the page is
turned. Come to think of it, God knows
when every sparrow falls so maybe using this thin paper
is a way of staying under His radar when re-reading
parts of Deuteronomy.
Should Bible's be printed on recycled paper? Would you be
twice as pious if the paper was made entirely of old recycled
Bibles? Would recycling old evolution books into Bibles cancel
out the religious effect? What if some of that recycled paper
was composed of old pornography? How small a portion can
a Bible be composed of recycled pictures of animal sodomy
before it can
be considered unholy?
