a christmas card

Yes, folks! Jesus Saves!

But these are desperate times, and desperate times call for drastic measures. With everyone feeling the pinch, the temptation is surely to buckle down and save for that rainy day. But as we know, that rainy day is here, and what the economy needs right now is for all good Christians to get out on the high street and spend this Christmas. God knows, the Good Lord wouldn't have it any other way!

Get drastic with that plastic, and do your bit for America!

God bless you, one and all!

Happy Christmas to readers of SibLINGSHOT ON THE BLEACHERS everywhere.

Amen ib.


Citizen X will only save the day for other Xtians, & since they're mightily outnumbered by the rest of the world, well, the rest of us are going to Hell.

But seriously, thanks to the link to the Jesus on the bus story. Jon's musings are always insightful, but these two vignettes are extra AO.

Take heart, everyone. Only three++ more days 'til Satan arrives. Be of good cheer (or Blue Cheer... Summertime Blues don't seem so blue right now).

or as your word verification implies, perhaps this is all just cyaphie (Sci a Fi)

Oh, I'm certainly going straight to hell; don't know if it will be much of a change, though, and I don't wanna be moon dust. One man's meat is another man's "ouch!".

For a minute, I thought it was a real quote for Dub-Ya. Is that a reflection on me or him? Great illustration and a funny story over at PIFA. And BTW: have a happy/dusty/snowy/fun/absurd/unusual/maybe-even-Merry Christmas. MJ at F45

Thanks, MJ. Good to know everyone is enjoying real poetry from the San Franciscan bus routes. Best wishes to you and your wife and kids. And the new pup. Have a great Christmas.

Well, I think a good amount of us are going to hell ib! So no worries. From what it seems like, it should be a really fun time down there! Good music, lots of laughs, drinks and sex! WOOHOO!
