Moishe & the Pope

vaticancity.jpg A few centuries back, the Pope decided that all the Jews should have to leave the Vatican since they did not accept Christ. Naturally, there was some uproar from the Jewish community, so the Pope offered them a deal. He would have a religious debate with a member of the Jewish community — if the Jewish leader won, the Jews could stay. If the Pope won, the Jews would leave.

The Jews realized that they had no choice, and nominated a middle-aged man named Moishe to represent them. Moishe agreed, but had one stipulation: to make it more interesting, neither side would be allowed to speak. The Pope was a little curious, but agreed nonetheless.

I’m a Villain of Biblical Proportions?

Results for the “Which Biblical Villain Are You” Test
You are Caiaphas, the high priest of Israel. You were a member of a strict Jewish sect known as the Pharisees. Aside from praying in the temple, your mission in life was to have Jesus executed. You are a rather ambitious person and you tend to accomplish most of the goals that you set for yourself. This goal was no different. You managed to have Jesus (the Son of God) crucified in approximately the year 28 AD. You had to get rid of Jesus because he was an insult to your pride. Before Jesus showed up, you were the most righteous man in all of Israel. Jesus was not only more righteous than you were, he also pointed out faults in your righteousness. Your pride blinded you to Jesus’ message and drove you to put the man to death. Of course you couldn’t do this right away because many people viewed Jesus as a prophet. This is the point where your deceptive skills came in handy. You welcomed Jesus into Jerusalem as an honored prophet and three days later; you arrested him in the night and hastily set up a trial to execute him.

Hey, Y’all, Bless Yer Lil’ Hearts…

possum.jpg We done been a-spendin’ some time down heah in the ol’ south, and i’s gettin’ so’s mah speech is bein’ affected. I was a-buyin’ some gas t’day over in Buford, down at th’ RaceTrac station — and there was this line-up in the store, y’know? An’ we was all jus-a-waitin’ fer th’ guy t’ ring us all up, like, an’ there was these good ol’ boys in fron’a me, an’ each-a-them had two beers, ya know? Redneck beer, like Bud an’ Coors Lite an’ stuff like ‘at. Th’ big bottles, ya know? An dang if th’er necks wer’n’t acshully red! Then they started to talkin’, and I purty much couldn’ un’erstan’ a sangle thang they was-a-sayin’! But possom-on-a-gum-bush, it seems I been takin’ to sayin suthern-style things like “y’all,” and I been startin’ to say some things with a drawl, like “sweeet teeea,” with all th’ customaary vo-cal in-fle-ctions, y’know? I’m jus’ gettin’ acclim-a-ted.

Best Bookstore Ever?

[ RSS Readers may need to click through ]

Well it’s no secret and I admit it, there are few things I love more than a good bookstore… (and especially used books) but this video clip features what just might be the mother of all bookstores. I found it via Tom Peters, who says, “if you are not in love with this video, please let us know, and we’ll take you off all our mailing lists.” Inventory is an estimated 1,000,000 books (yes, I counted the zeros) distributed through eleven buildings with designs on a twelfth. The most impressive building is a converted manure tank… which has been fixed up very nicely inside and they say you can’t smell anything of its former contents. Perhaps the continual purchasing of inventory with a complete and utter lack of marketing is a factor — located in rural Wisconsin, there isn’t even a sign at the side of the road. I guess it’s hard to sell a million books by depending on drop-in traffic through word-of-mouth. But man, I want to browse there. For a month.

The Rural Pastor and His Barn

oldbarn.jpg It seems there was this pastor in a rural community. Like many people in the community, he lived a few miles outside the town limits and kept a bit of a “hobby farm.” He was known to be a bit of a miser, so nobody was entirely certain if the dairy cow and the chickens were motivated by his love of frugality or by his love of fresh ingredients for his breakfast meals. The nine head of grass-fed beef cattle were clearly motivated by his love of the barbecue. The two horses were concessions to his daughters, and his wife helped work the oversize garden. Every fall, she did most of the work canning preserves and freezing vegetables for the winter. During those cold winter months, she enjoyed the quality of the produce, and he enjoyed the price.
