Christian Facebook Ads

If you're in need of a job in the tech world, then facebook might be a good place for you to check out. It looks like they're in need of people to select the appropriate pictures to go along with all those ads that troll along the side of the page. Then again, maybe I have been WILDLY misinformed as to what Christian therapy is all about. These pictures would explain the high hourly rates that...

American Jesus Madness

    It's March Madness time which means it's time for all true blooded Americans to neglect their jobs for the next couple of weeks pouring over obscure statistics in order to fill out the perfect bracket and then watch that bracket bust after the first round.

Smoky Mountain Adventures

Here are just a few of my favorites. First up, a couple of tshirts. This first one isn't too earth shatteringly amazing, but what makes it more amusing is the fact that it, along with the...

Jesus, Robocop, and Showgirls

This may only be amusing to me and the handful of you out there interested in biblical scholarship, but I find it amusing. Apparently there is a Jesus Seminar conference coming to Salem, OR.
