Score One For The Polytheists?

I can only read a story about the Nepalese child that is the "living goddess" and think...religion ruins one more young life.

Daddy Dearest

This counts as a benchmark both in gender equality and adoption rights, yes?

(telemarketing | St. Louis, MO, USA)

(My job is to call people and pitch the brand of make-up my company sells. I call and an obviously really young girl answers the phone.)

Little Girl: “Hello?”

Me: “Hi, may I talk to the lady of this residence?”

Little Girl: “That’s me.”

Me: “I mean, may I talk to your mom?”

Little Girl: “I have two dads.”

Me: “Oh well, never mind then. Have a nice day!”

Little Girl: “Wait! Why did you call?”

Me: “I’m selling make-up.”

Little Girl: “Oh! One of my daddies loves that stuff, it makes him look pretty when he goes dancing! Let me give him the phone! Dad! Dad! Some girl wants to make you look pretty!”

A Little (Scissor) Lift For An Expat

It's been a long, long time since I've been back to Georgia and I have to say, this video made me miss the childlike dynamics of so many interactions in good ol' Dixie.

And the cherry is that, at the end, you can just make out the guy say "gul-dang." That just puts pep in my step.

Perhaps the saddest thing about being an artist who works around artists all day quotidian it all becomes.

Art that once moved me is now something that I study to determine how it achieved its effect.

I suppose this is a bit like a Wall St. kid complaining that making money isn't as fun as he heard. All apologies...

Random Thought: Self-Esteem

Anyone who can confidently wear white underwear is going places in this world.

Jaundice H. Christ

A Christmas day communion in Long Island may have exposed hundreds of churchgoers to Hepatitis A.

So given the principles of transubstantiation...did the priest give the Holy Son a liver infection by accidentally bleeding in His blood? It works both ways right?

Or did Jesus already have Hep A from some Magdalena tomfoolery and it took science 2,000 years to notice?

Either way, it's a Christmas miracle!
