2duckies.jpg I gather the week wouldn’t be complete without a bizzarrely corny list like the following prelinkage one.

  • Why don’t ducks carry spare change? They all have “bills”.
  • Why did the one handed man cross the road? ’cause the second hand store was across the street.
  • Why do cowboys ride horses? Because they are too heavy to carry.
  • Why did the turtle cross the street? To get to the Shell station!!
  • A sandwich and a banana walk into a bar. They go up to the bartender and say, “Bartender, get us each a beer!” The bartender turns to them and says, “Sorry, but we don’t serve food here.”
  • What do you call a mathematician on a frozen pond? A figure skater.
  • Psychiatrist to chicken: “Why do YOU think you cross the road?”
  • What do they use frozen band-aids for? Cold Cuts.
  • What did one hat say to the other hat? “You stay here, I’m going to go on a head!”
  • What kind of nurse would fall in love with a rich patient? A practical nurse.
  • What time is it when an elephant sits on a fence? Time to buy a new fence.
  • What’s worse than finding a worm in your apple? Finding half a worm!
  • What time is it when kids need a nap? Whine o’clock!

That ought to be enough for now… don’t want the volume of groans to get too loud, do we? On with the weekly linkage.

  1. Last week I missed Julie Clawson’s book list from the past year. Fixed that now. ;^) You can tell she’s something of a voracious reader. Wow. And did I mention Becky Garrison’s Favorite Books and Movies of 2008?
  2. Dylan’s Jesus Years
  3. ‘A Former Leader’ recommends a new site on “covering and authority” — a wrong teaching we’ve talked about a fair bit under the ‘spiritual abuse’ category.
  4. Brant Hansen opines on a certain bookseller’s addition of warnings to specific titles: “Read with extra discernment.” Oy.
  5. Fr. Richard John Neuhaus has died; discussion at iMonk
  6. Obama’s new ride
  7. Pranking speed cameras — & unsuspecting victims
  8. Apparently the current issue of Interpretation is available as a free download. My subscription ran out a few years back, but it was always a good journal.
  9. Bob Hyatt: Truly Missional: “‘Church’ is not the bleeding edge of mission and kingdom. It’s the result of it.”
  10. From Jamie Arpin-Ricci last month: Interview With Michael Frost about ReJesus: A Wild Messiah for a Missional Church (it’s true, I still have a huge backlog of posts sitting in my blog reader)
  11. AbeBooks’ Most Expensive Sales in 2008
  12. Don’t miss my Wikiklesia chapter over at MT: Hyperlinks Subvert Hierarchies
  13. The story of the week is probably the launch of Missional Tribe, with some possible unintended consequences. It’s shot past 250 members in the first four days and there’s good stuff coming up in the blogs, groups, and forums. The site is still in beta so there are a few kinks remaining, but come check out (and join) the Missional Tribe.
  14. The rest of my day is beckoning, so I’ll point you over toward the fact that Scot McKnight’s Weekly Meanderings are Back in action. He also mentions the Tribe as well as a goodly number of other notable posts from the past week.
